From what I can see from the 2010 post, the mounting bracket was too wimpy for the job. I believe I would be inclined to either fabricate a mounting bracket or fit one from a different saw rather than trying to find a replacement part.

Just a quick thanks and acknowledgement of the posting and comments: despite it being an OP! I joined the forum today just to let you all know that this information is invaluable and incredibly welcome. I look for stuff like this all the time and yesterday, just bought the exact saw described on Craigslist (primarily for the Unifence and cast iron router extension) with exactly the same bent motor mount problem. Using your old, but collected thoughts, it turns out that the mount (aluminum, no longer available) and the steel frame on the motor, were both bent. Will try my best to bend them both back to shape before exploring other options (I'm in the process of a FrankenSaw workstation build) but wanted to thank you all again!

Welcome! You sound just like me, bringing up and adding to old posts because the historical information provides the best set of keywords (that google finds) and context (that the similarly situated finds) and content (that we find) that is useful and instructive to solving the problem.

And we also seem to have FrankCanSaws in common.

Thank you for posting your thank you to the history of past contributors who collectively have shed insight from several angles on a common problem. Hopefully, the folks whose only comment is to complain about when a thread was originally begun... will eventually come to see, through your expressed appreciation, how enduring the putting of heads together in an online subject specific community can be, enuring to the benefit of future searchers for years to come.
