I'm just looking to see if any fellow members here are familar with this saw. I recently aquired it, took it apart to see why the blade wasn't raising up. I have discovered that I need a part, not 100% sure what to call it to get it up and running.
It is a flat piece of steel, about 2" in length, 1/8 " wide with 12 teeth on it. When you want to raise or lower the saw blade this engages with the worm gear to do so. Saw is in decent shape except for this.
Any ideas? or does anyone who restores these fine old saws have a source for this part I seek?
