I have a aquired a Magna Table Saw (Shopsmith) model 710 9" table saw from
and old friends father.
Hid dad bought the saw in the 50's and still had the manual with the part
break down and part numbers.)
The origional 3/4 hp 3450 rpm motor went out and he replaced it with an old
1750 rpm motor of unknown origin.
Except for needing a motor this saw is in pretty good shape. the blade is
parrallel to the miter grove and the adjustments feel really good. (there is
1 hand wheel. push is elevation, pull is tilt.)
The problem is the arbor. It has the shopsmith style arbor for quick change
blades that use the 1 1/4" arbor. The saw needs a spacer to use the
standard 5/8" arbor and a right threaded nut with 11 threads per inch.(if
any one knows where to find these. Shopsmith currently knows nothing of
this saws existance.)
Shopsmith sells the quick change 5/8" arbor but i would have to cut the
origional arbor down to use it.
If anyone knows anything about these saws, or would be interested in it
please let me know.
