Question: Motor Trunnion Assembly
What is the procedure for reinstallation of the motor trunnion. I had to have the yoke repaired now I am having trouble figuring out how to get it back in the cabinet, the tilt shaft and the blade lift. the yoke was in three pieces when I took it a part.
Question: Tablesaw Bladeguards
Insurance company says I need blade guards for our two table saws. Anyone know where I can get one for an older Powermatic model 66 and a Jet mode 1lJTAS-10XL-1w ? Thanx in advance.

Question: BOWED CUTS
I HAVE A 10" JET TABLE SAW AND WHEN I RIPPED LONG PIECES THEY'RE BOWED ANY IDEA
Reply: BOWED CUTS
I would guess that the tablesaw is following a bow in the board. The tablesaw will not straighten a board that is longer than about half the length of the fence. So in the case of your saw, about 20". With longer boards, any bow that is present on the side of the board that is touching the fence will be reproduced by the saw when the board is cut. A good long bed jointer is needed to straighten long boards before they are cut by the tablesaw. A jointer with a bed length of around 66" is usually a good length for most woodworking. Basically the longer the bed on the jointer, the longer the boards you will be able to joint straight.
Question: FENCE GUIDE REPLACEMENT
Are there fence giude replacements other than the plastic one that come w/the fence on the 10" 3hp saws? I have the xacta fence II and they are not true(flat). I even switched it out w/the one on the right and still get same results. I have tried every thing, even shiming the out w/masking tape and no luck.
Reply: FENCE GUIDE REPLACEMENT
I am not aware of any replacement kits for the Xacta fence other than the plastic sides. You could build your own along the lines of those on the Biesemeyer fence. Biesemeyer uses a piece of 1/2" Baltic Birch plywood with a Formica laminate coating. It would be a pretty simple project to build the new sides. You can use your old plastic sides as a size template as well as a drilling jig. Just mill the new wooden sides. Drill and countersink the mounting holes. Attach the new wood pieces to the fence. Adhere the Formica and trim off the excess with a laminate trimmer.
I hope this helps!
