Delta Model 10, Serious pointer problem
I recently bought an older Delta Model 10 Contractor saw at an auction, I never learn. It wasn't until I got it home that I noticed that tilt degree pointer was inside the case/base. I have pulled it apart to clean it up and find that it is not simply a case of bending the pointer back. I noticed that the hold down knob on the blade elevation wheel is missing, that makes me wonder if the shaft from another model was used. I would like an opinion before I start trying to pull the shaft back where it would place the pointer outside of the base.
I am adding a couple of attachments to show the location of the shaft, a large screwdriver just fits between the shaft and the casting. I just looked at that picture again and noticed a set screw, maybe I had better look into that. The other picture is an "over all".
