Some progress made on the left blade guide. I was out of town all last week so didn't get much done.

I like the color. I think it will look good.

This left guide I am working on, came detached. When it was displayed in the auction photos, it was attached. I'm wondering if one of the "inspectors" didn't possibly make off with the razzle dazzle 3-armed nut handle that shows to be available in the parts listing for $80.

Anyone else have the 3-armed nut handle p/n 10084-00? Or, are you just using a nut to tighten it down?

Since mine didn't have blade guides, I didn't get any nuts either.

You might want to take a close look at your acme screw that the half nut rides on. Mine was rusted quit badly. The same moisture caused the shaft that raises and lowers the half nut to rust away causing the half nut to stay permanently engaged. The new shaft was almost $60.00 so I made my own.

Nice four step pulley. Where did you get it? Who makes it? I need to replace my motor one as it was damaged before I got my saw.

Good luck with your project and keep the pics coming.

That's a Dake pully. $146 smackeroos. Ordered from Danco. DAKE part number 300542.

My half nut looks good... if I do say so myself... A little bit of wear, I suspect, from folks re-engaging while still sliding it down the screw. I predict no slippage when it comes times to do its job.

The screw looks good too. A bit of surface rust from sitting idle, but, for it's age, it looks great.

Movable vise related parts are all removed for clean up and painting.

More pics of vise parts.

The shot of the screw is a bit out of focus - I was bent over in poor light and couldn't see the focus spot.

My "heaters" are marked "N 17". Is it normal for the start/stop switch to be upside down on these?

I returned the $9 screw from Danco for the vise lift mechanism, and ordered this from McMaster Carr:

A little progress this morning.

I painted some of the parts I posted pics of yesterday, and removed the vise hand wheel and screw. The screw is in excellent shape. Next best thing to new condition. Wish my sandblaster was not in storage, as that hand wheel beckons for it. My wire brush and TSP has to be good enough for now.

When putting the new bearings on the left blade guide, I saw that the eccentric bolt's threads were galled - it probably got cross threaded at some point in it's life. It's matching nut is galled too. After I take the other one off, I'll see if I need to order one or two. (Pic of bolt is B&W, since I took a lousy pic, and this was the best I could do to show the threads with the pic I took.)

Todd

Edit - I just noticed I assembled the inside bearing axle and eccentric axle in each other's spot. Eccentric axle goes on the outside bearing.

My new vise lift handle looks like it's going to work perfect. Just the right size too.

More parts painted - vise carrier ("hold down block", per the parts diagram) and movable jaw.
