Rusty Atlas Power King 3201 8" Table Saw

Hi,

I managed to get one of these given to me.

I have refurbished the unit and it has come up well but for the severe staining on the table post the rust removal. Needs a lick of paint still.

So I have washed and checked the spindle bearings and they are good. I now need to repack the housing with grease as the bearings have outer seals but are open on the inside. I know that over packing with grease can cause overheating when under load.

So once the individual bearings have been packed what percentage of the cavity should be filled with grease?

I am missing the fence, guard and miter slide. Is there a second hand market in the US that sells these components? Else will make the first two and buy the third and modify to suit.

Regards

There is a chart here on amount of grease to use:

Personally it is something that would not concern me that much on a table saw that sees intermittent use, the bearings will likely never get hot enough to have any effect on the grease.

Hi,

Many thanks for that. Here are some before and after pics. The rust was deep and short of surface grinding I cannot clean deep enough. It is fine for me however.

Any idea where I can source a 5/8" mitre slide, they all are now a standard 3/4"?

Did you try any type of rust cleaning products(such as naval jell) on the top?

I had it immersed in a similar product called Evapo-Rust for over 24 hours. I then took water paper to it 100, 220, 400 and finally 600 grit. The pitting is rather deeply etched, I think I would need to skim somewhere between 1/64" and 1/32" to clean her up. I don't think that expense is worth the cosmetic improvement. Function before form.
