I have a Shopmate 5200 Radial Arm Saw.

I obtained the 36 individual jpg page scans and have posted them in one large (26MB uncompressed) PDF document file on my ftp site:

I also have a repair request: The back post is "stuck" and the raising crank is breaking the gears trying to adjust it. I have loosened off the only back lock nut (no side lock-nut on my model), but the central screw/lifting rod won't turn. Any ideas?

I also have parts for the side router drives if anyone wants them (not something I would use).

HI Richard.

I would be interested in the router drives. I wonder how much the postage and packing to London England would be.

Thanks. John.

I have just become the owner of a second hand shopmate 5200. Just stripped it down and serviced it and it runs nicely but i must have missed something when i put it together. The zero detent on the motor unit appears to be at around 30 degrees, and 45 degrees is at 75. Anyone know how to adjust it?
