Re: old saw blades

Subject to verification, but my recollection is that the MVII was a 10" at the get go. A feature was the 10" sanding disk used 'in the table'. Not sure that the blade guard was compatible(never seed one myself).

Re: Rebuilding Mark V, GE 1-1/8 hp motor

Good luck finding one at a hardware store. I would put the squeeze on it and reinstall. A good retaining ring pliers is really almost necessary to prevent opening them too far.(especially this type)
