46Re: [sawsmith] NEW MEMBER
- May 4, 2004Thanks for the feed back. Hold off on the machine
shop. I've got a buddy that's a machinist. I'll ask
him if he can duplicate the nut I have for you. If he
can I'll let u know what the shipping is. Give me a
few days to see him. I guess I did the same thing u
did with ordering acme thread nuts. I've tried 3
different ones. I do know that a Delta table saw
36-635 10" saw arbor nut will fit my saw because my
neighbor has one. Can't get a owners manual for that
either to buy a nut. I notice in the pictures that the
saws have a crank handle on each end and in the
center. Mine only has the center one. I'll get the
pictures up quick. John.
