This is a long shot, but why not try. I have an older Rockwell Model 9
contractors saw. The elevating shaft has frozen in it's eccentric tube. I
tried for weeks, soaking in penetrating oil, heat, good old fashioned
banging. It is stuck and will never be useable again. Rockwell (Delta)
doesn't make that part anymore (they make the tube, but not the shaft and
associated gear and such). My local scrounge shop has one (a whole saw)
they'd sell me but I found a Powermatic for about the same money and bought
it. I'm still not giving up on finding a stray part... anyone have one or
know a potential source?
That sounds a lot like how I described a rusted-in-place drill press
table/column to a friend who told me not to give up until I tried
PBlaster. I bought an aerosol can of the stuff and six hours later had
everything moving smoothly. Give it a try.
