Need Size Of Set Screw For Collar Assembly

Post by RacineSteel »

I own a 1959 Magna Shopsmith. Thanks to heathicus, I was able to get the parts list for that saw. I need to remove the Collar Assembly Part # 700021. In order to do that I need the hex size of the Set Screw Part # 1017. I failed to find that info at Shopsmith.com. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks, RacineSteel

In a later Parts list and Drawings (from 11-64 after the part numbers changed), it lists that set screw as P/N 222460 and is 5/16"-18 x 3/8" flat point. Unless it is a special set screw it would use a 5/32" Allen Wrench. In an earlier Parts List and Drawings Reference # 2 and part number 1017 only says set screw.

Thanks chapmanruss. I appreciate the help. It must be a special set screw because the 5/32 from the Magna is too big. Looks like a 1/8 inch. I needed to cut my 1/8 inch Allen shorter to reach the set screw & I removed the Collar Assembly. That still did not get me close enough to install the saw guard. I will have to get back to Shopsmith tech support and ask how they said the 5/8 arbor will work for my Magna, since I cannot install the guard.
