It is important, when replacing set screws, to replace them with the right type and size. Knowing what is right is hard to achieve. I hope the listing posted in the referenced thread helps to that end.
I also hope that is there are errors those are pointed out.
This is another version of the list of set screws I compiled earlier and referenced here.
Note: The number in the second column is the reference number used in the online catalog illustrated parts lists.
The colored back ground indicates that this part is also used elsewhere.
This list is a compilation of data gathered from a small sample set of equipments and does not represent the final word. If you see what seems to be an error, PLEASE report that here in this thread.
Don't labor under the assumption that if you have the "Help Kit" your set screw requirements are satisfied. There are a number of set screws used by Shopsmith that are NOT in the Help Kit.
[size=84]Added Information: 4/30/2012
I have added a small amount of additional data to the chart referenced above. A have also changed the format (sorted on part number) hopefully to make the data more useful. If I could only post this in excel format so that you guys/gals could sort at will but the forum doesn't provide that capability.
The information contained in the last column (far right) provides access to a Fastenal site that provides more detail about the parts. This link also provides a digital image of the part in question. Simple google that URL and you'll be there.
I don't know why some of the URLs are in blue while others are not.
