I am new to the forum.
I have owned my Sawsmith 2000 for about 6 months or so now. It needs some parts.
I think this saw is almost perfect. I have realized there is barely any support or parts for this thing. I would love to "restore it" and use this piece of equipment.
1.)The "carriage lock thread " that holds the saw in place (not the spinner that locks) but the actual plastic threaded piece that the "pole" goes into and the spinner locks in with force was broken. I "fixed" with JB weld. I am not too comfortable about the fix. It works but like I said it was JB welded. I am looking into machinists or maybe it can be 3d printed. dunno..
2.) Miter gauge that came with it is not original. I have on on the way and understand the 510 miter gauges are compatible with the 2000.
3.) The Bevel lock was broken, fixed with JB weld but would like to find a replacement.
4.) The wheel that aligns the bevel is broken off. looking for a replacement or engineer something.
5.) Not sure how the blade guard goes in. (really need a manual)
6.) Excalibur fence needs tweaking is not totally aligned.
1.) overall it seems to run fine cutting what I need it too.
2.) dado arbor and accessories are all there.
3.) have miter stops
Any help and insight is greatly appreciated. My apologies for not using proper SS nomenclature.
