Jigsaw Parts

#154218 by ipbarnard » Sun Nov 03, 2013 10:07 pm

Hellos:

I am a new user to the forum.

I have a 1955 SS. My father in law bought it new and I inherited it 24 years ago.

For all of that time the jigsaw has not worked. I need a couple of internal parts. SS no longer supports the jigsaw so where can I find parts?

Thanks,
Uncle Pig

Check your PM. I have the remains of over 18 jig saws plus a large assortment of new parts for the jig saw. I offer a rebuild service for the SPTs that I feel is excellant and cheap as Shopsmiths are only a full time hobby, not a business for me. I have the special tools, parts, equipment and knowledge needed for this work. My health problems does slow my response some times.

I still have 2 of the plastic like couplers for the jigsaw available. I also have all the other jig saw parts available. I have the lastest 52 page Shopsmith manual split in 2 computer files due to size for the jig saw if anyone is interested. Please contact me off line for information. If I do not respond, please try again later as my computer and web service does eat my Emails sometimes.

That would be great if it will fit this old jigsaw my original coupler has rubber between the attachment points which was at one time vulcanized together. so what would be the cost of one of these couplers

I am referring to the plastic like coupler inside the Jig saw body that converts rotary motion to up & down motion. It sounds like you need the Power Coupler (503574) that connects the headstock to the jig saw. These I do not have available. Shopsmith is the best place to buy these Power Couplers. All Shopsmith Power Couplers have always used the 4 splne hub for the headstock and the 5 splint hub for the SPT.

Jigsaw Parts

Do you have Part # A3227 available for an older Magna Jigsaw Model 610? It is the back-up tube that supports the blade and keeps the air tube connected?

Oil Change

#161632 by delong94 » Mon Feb 17, 2014 6:42 am

Got the oil changed on my older 610 jigsaw... The manual said to fill it up to level of the intake. Oil is now dripping from the air hole at times when it is upright. Is that a big issue or did I put too much oil in?

The jigsaw takes 3 oz of oil. I have a 3 oz bottle with spout that I use to get the correct amount of oil into the jigsaw. I use air compressor oil brought at a big box store. Do not use motor oil as it can foam and push out the breather oil hole sometimes.

My 4 stroke blower and string trimmer uses almost 3 oz of motor oil so my 3 oz. bottles works for these too. I had brought a dozen 3 oz bottles to ship oil with any jigsaw I sold but found out that shipping oil is not a great idea and requires special handing by the USPS or so they say. I had been using double zip lock bags to ship any small bottle of oil.
