Jet Arbor Shaft
A few months ago, I purchased a used Jet JTAS-10-1/3 Tilting Arbor Table Saw Model M-708510. (Right tilting)
The owner was selling it at a reasonable price as he said it had a slight vibration. Upon inspection, I concluded the bearings on the motor were probably at fault, so I replaced the bearings and the motor hummed smoothly.
I put the machine back together and long story short found that the arbor that was installed was for a left tilting saw. I contacted the seller and he admitted the original arbor shaft had been replaced. He offered to refund my money or reduce the price. I thought the saw was worth what I paid and that I could replace the arbor.
After several weeks searching the internet for the correct arbor shaft (The part is no longer available from Jet) I finally found an arbor shaft that matched the dimension of the shaft I had so I purchased it and installed it, saw now work great.
The other day I saw the left tilt arbor shaft sitting in a box. Out of curiosity I logged onto the Jet site to see if this arbor shaft was available. According to Jet and eReplacement--it is no longer available. Knowing how frustrated I was searching for an arbor shaft, I thought I should post.
I think this is part number JTAS10L-104; although my research found that several brands of table saws use a similar arbor shaft. I am including a picture of the left tilting arbor shaft with measurements.
If you or someone you know is in need of an arbor shaft, please contact me. I am not trying to make money on this part (maybe just recover some)
