The table saw is completely operational, but it could do with some touch ups!

The nut holding the blade requires a 22mm wrench. The nut holding the splitter requires a 16mm wrench.


  • Finish Dust collector so the saw doesn't end up filled with sawdust again.
  • Resurface the table top to get rid of the rust and make it flat again.

Riving Knife Options

  • BORK ($150) [1]
  • MJ Splitter [2]

Work Log

14 February 2014

  • Was purchased for $700. Approximately 4 years old at time of purchase and had been in storage for a while and had a small leak above it. Some rust on machine as shown in images.

Late February

  • Bearings and belt were purchased by Hutch for ~$87.
  • Ryan and Jon disassembled most of the saw to do maintenance such as remove surface rust and replace the bearing for the blade mount.

10 March 2014

  • Ryan and Jon finished assembling the outfeed table and fence so the saw has been completely put back together.
  • Jon replaced the short ~2m power cord with a ~3.5m cord for $23.

2 May 2014

  • Jon called Steel City Tool Works to find out about a replacement table wing and a saw blade cover.
    • New table wing is $197 retail (they accidentally told me that the dealer price is $58.41 though!!)
    • Saw blade cover (which includes a riving knife, etc) is $68.71 retail.
