I have an old Powr-Kraft table saw from Monkey Wards. When I got it the
motor and bracket were not attached. I attached it the only way I could see
how but when the arbor is tilted the belt is way too twisted and it looks
like it will either slip off the pulleys or wear out quickly. The motor
bracket is now attached to the two bolts that hold the rear of the saw onto
the rear of the stand. Can anyone tell me where the bracket is supposed to
be attached? One end of the bracket has a flared fitting that looks like it
should fit onto something but I can't see what. It looks just like this one
but it'll only take an 8" blade:
There are paint splatters etc on the top side of the motor so at least I
think I have it on right-side-up. Aside from all that, with the arbor set
at 90 degrees, the saw seems to run just fine and has plenty of power.
I have a craftsman, so not the same, but I'm pretty sure my motor
tilts with the arbor. See if there is an extension of the arbor mount
that could support the motor.
Thanks. I'll keep staring at it. All the pics I've found that show the
motor are obscured in some way but some are definately in the back behind
