Any ideas on how to hold fast a table saw arbor when you don't have the wrench? There is very little clearance to get onto the arbor shaft. I don't want to buy just the wrench (like 20 bucks!) if there is another way to stop it from moving. Im sure someone will tell me just to buy a wrench, lol. Thanks for any thoughts!

If it is a belt drive and you can get a hold on the belt works like a charm.

Best time to clean the garage is when stuff starts missing :lookout:

On my older General saw, they never made allowance to hold the arbour , you just slide a piece of wood against the blade and as you turn the nut the blade stops the arbour from turning. Let the tooth of the blade hook on the corner of a block of scrap.

Borrow one? Toss it into your shop and that's where yours will be.

Or, just borrow one and return it.

Don't waste your money on another one. Either use a scrap piece of wood in the teeth of the saw, or make your own from a piece of scrap flat iron. Any welding shop should be able to accommodate you. Just measure the flat width of the arbor and cut a slot in a piece of steel.

Unplug the machine first. A local restaurant had an employee sever his arm cleaning a pasta making machine just recently. I guess they didn't tell him to unplug it.

You probably knew that already. But just thought I'd say it again.

Did you check behind your D handle cutting jig that's hanging on the wall of your wood shop?

That's where mine wound up being. LOL
