    Do both screws have rotating tips or just one?? Are the holders the same top and bottom????


    Mine only has one rotating on the bottom and I don't have a top clamp. Is there a seal like this on yours??? I don't have the brass washers as others have shown.


    The thread has been straightened, cold, and all rust removed. Lyle you should be able to get a similar result.




    I noticed you guys have riveted on scales, mine is also missing the table angle scale.

    Yes the blade holders top and bottom look the same. Although I haven't tried to swap them.
    Both blade holders have one bolt with a rotating tip and one bolt with a crudelt cut slot.

    My machine didn't have a seal on either bladr holder rod. Although I wish the bottom one did. The gearbox may have been a lot cleaner inside. Also if the rod also had something inside it may have prevented all the broken bits and sawdust accumulating over the years.

    The spring tension adjusting rod - I'll try and straighten it, it is not bent too much, just enough to stop the locking-stop from going down. Fingers crossed. I don't know if I can get it the same finish as yours.

    The table tilt gauge on mine is painted over so I'll need to carefully scrape it off or leave it.

    I have to thank all of you for your assistance with this.
    Very much appreciated.
    Lyle.

    The bottom holder on mine, is the T piece with swivel tip and a regular bolt, no slot or hole as has been mentioned.

    The thread had been vent in moving with the forklift on mine. I clamped up to the bend between two bits of wood in the vice then just pulled orbit a little at a time then checking how far off straight and repeat. Nothing fancy in the cleaning either. It was fully covered in rust and I just spent a bit of time with a wire wheel.

    You should be able to get just as good results if not better.

    You are a hard taskmaster.
    I scrapped off the layers of paint on the angle guage/indicator. When I took the table angle mount off theen I could see a small threaded hole in the support for the indicator pointer. Photos to come.
    I have straightened the tension adjuster to the point it is working. A little stiff but it works. My adjuster is an acme square thread but I think the locking ring thingy is a normal v thread. Would that be right?

    When taking the table angle support off to scrape clean the indicator I noticed the front mounting hole had a hollow bolt in it. Curious???? Also the support has a threaded hole, this maybe where a pointer for the indicator was fitted??

    Paint colour?? Seems to be a few layers around. I am not too sure if the hammertone blue is original or the green under it. Would the green be an undercoat or original colour?

    Is there a correct position for the tensioner cap where the air line comes out? As you face the saw from the front, on the right or the left? Mine goes on either way without any apparent problem.

    As always thanks for your inputs.

    Dale - it mounts the same way as Camoz' ....there's a plate on the bottom of the rod which it bolts to.

    OMG!


    a gentle brushing and a blow with compressed air does marvels.

    The original motor is 3ph so I'm considering fitting a vfd and getting electronic speed control.
    Or I have a twin 240v motor I can fit if I can get the old pulley off. seems the previous owner had issues. Thoughts?










    Got the 240V Motor fitted for now anyway. Machine runs well, just need those last few parts.. I will at some point make a timber shelf and top for the stand.

    I will post some photos on Monday for the hold down I have, such as it is.
    I also made a quick drawing with dimensions.
    I am hoping with those photos and any others I/we can make replacements and get our machines up to speed.

    I am offline until Monday sorry.

    I like your work, far better result than I have. I'll have to make some extra effort

    I hope so for the parts, he was going to drop them off to my son later in the month.
    I hope he gave you what you were after (blade holder?)

    I think you are right re my missing spring foot and roller guide.

    Lyle,

    If no one has posted those photos and dimensions you're seeking up by next week I can as soon as I get back to Brissy - just travelling for work at the moment. Also, just letting you know I dropped those parts off to your son on Sat.

    And speaking of parts, Dale I sent you a PM for those parts you were after. Left over was the top blade holder and the angle plate for for the table. Give me a call if you still want them.

    Regards,
    Raymond.

    Thanks Raymond. My son 'forgot' to tell me a nice bloke dropped off some 'stuff' for me on Sat.
    Kids, I tell you they'll be the death of me.

    Thanks very much, I'll put them to good use.
    Lyle.
