I think someone brought this up or asked about rebuilding there Table saw, about a week or more. Well after sending for the parts I thought would repair the saw back to running condition and spending $76.40. for the clips , retainers and bearings for the arbor, plus some clips and O rings for the up-down shaft.
I found that the arbor shaft had to be replaced too. The barring locked up and wore a 1/16 deep grove in the shaft where the back barring sits on the shaft, ordered a new shaft , $79.46 and now I have a cost of pressing the bearings on the new shaft and into the saw. I’m already looking at $155.86 . And it might be another $50. or $60. to press the bearings in. Then the shop I took it to told me I could have bought most of all the clips , snap-rings and O rings , and bearings locally, and saved a lot more money. Then how much time searching for the right parts ?
I just wanted to point this out to anyone that might have this problem, and give them a round about cost to rebuild your table saw. This table saw is around 40 years old , Sears / case iron top with two extensions. I’m very surprised I could still get parts for it.
