Arbor nut for Rexon table saw

Hi,

I have a Rexon RXW-10 table saw and need a new left hand 5/8 - 11 arbor nut. Thus far I have searched everywhere, but have not been able to find one. Is there a compatible nut that will fit this arbor? I plan on running a die over the arbor threads because they look worn as well. Any suggestions?

Thanks, Claudio

Seeing as you know the specs, then I would try calling Fastenall. Im not sure where you are located, but they have locations all over the US.

The other place Im certain would have it is McMaster-Carr

They are here in Chicago, may have other locations, but will ship anywhere in the US.

If you need a skinny nut, just take and bandsaw a normal nut thinner, or have a machine shop make you one.

Those are Acme threads......




The square shoulders and recesses are an indication of Acme style threads. If you are certain about the threads per inch at 11, that may be an odd size... I donno?

Your threads are buggered up as well, which may require some careful work with a small file. Is a replacement arbor available if this approach fails?

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

DUNNO guys. But those threads look right handed to me. But I have only one eye so don't take me at my word.

Nope. Just went out and looked at some bolts in the shop. They are left hand, indeed.

Although 11 TPI seems odd to me, but Rexon is an off shore manufacturer (Taiwan) they are probably Metric and then all bets are off.

Double-check that thread pitch, thats an ACME thread (or at least it should be), and the acme thread for 5/8" is 8tpi. The thread pitch is about the same for a metric thread that size too, so if youve got a left hand 5/8-11 ACME thread, well, youre holding a unicorn. Good luck finding a mate for that. Hell, good luck finding a threading die for that too, ACME dies are hard enough to find, a left-hand acme thread die is nearly impossible, and a non-standard pitch left handed ACME die? Be cheaper to hire a machinist to make you a new arbor at that point

I need cheaper hobby

Insane Advice

I know. This is crazy.

Go to a Delta factory repair store. Buy an arbor nut for a right tilt UniSaw.
The last time that I bought a bunch they were like $8.75 each.

For $10 or so you might have solved your problem.
