Title: Need replacement riving knife plate for PM2000..Help!
Post by: 3PedalMINI on August 30, 2018, 04:34 PM
I ordered all the parts to repair my riving knife assembly on my PM2000. Unfortunately I found out that the clamping block and pin is on back order until the first of the year.

I need part numbers PM2000-268 And PM2000-270 and PM2000-271.

I do not want to wait until January to use my saw again, but I also dont want to use it without a riving knife.

Does ANYONE know if anyone has these parts in stock anywhere or do they always just come straight from PM? I looked at the JET table saw diagram and it *looks* like it is the same riving knife parts but I cant be for sure, and I assume if they were they are backordered as well.

Any idea? TIA!

I live in Houston and the big industrial tool supplier in town is called Circle Saw. Their toll free number is 866-439-8054. They stock a lot of parts and are normally very good at figuring out which parts from other manufacturers will fit. They do a lot of local repair for the big shops so they have be good at figuring out stuff like this. Even if they don’t have what you need maybe you will get lucky and they get their parts from a different geographic region that has what you need. It might be a long shot but you asked for ideas....

Oh that’s great! I thought it might be a long shot but it seemed like it was worth a try. So glad it worked out!
