I ran into the exact problem. No support for my old, old radial arm saw.

I took the top off the arm, removed the old broken switch and replaced it by screwing a standard electrical box to the top of the arm, extending the wires and then using a standard light switch to make/break the circuit. Looks kinda dorky, but it works fine. There's no relay involved, as the motor has a step/start capacitor.

As always, this is my work around, and I do not recommend or advise you to do anything you're not comfortable with. All I'm saying is that you'll have to find another solution to the fact that the switch is no longer available. The saw works great, btw, and the switch is very handy on top of the saw arm. Good luck.

I have an old laptop drive, Toshiba HDD2189 I would like to hook up to a ribbon cable. Where do I find a converter? Connector looks like a card slot on end of hard drive.

A 40 to 44-pin drive adapter can be purchased very cheaply off of eBay. Alternatively, you can purcase one from an online retailer, such as Amazon or Newegg

Auto pilot won't light

if its gas and will not light. its probably a bad thermal coupling. if they do go bad it shuts down the gas as not to cause a disaster. ( for safety ). replace thermal coupling. they are fairly cheap. but get one the same length as old one. or a bit longer.

Replacement substitute for Fender Sunn power transformer 28-4150

I can't find a schematic that references the transformer and cannot find a replacement either. I'd contact Fender for a reccomended substitute.

I am looking for a motor for a Kenmore 153.392. It is a motor #605.It is a very old machine and works wonderfully except the motor is getting very hot and looks like rubber is being pushed out the...

This motor has been discontinued by Sears and is no longer available. That being said, judging by the schematics I saw, I think a Clever mechanic should be able to use a standard motor and your old connector box to make a workable substitute. Talk to a mechanic you trust who is willing to go the extra mile because this is going to take a while. The labor costs may be prohibitive. No matter what , the repair will exceed the current resale value of this machine. In plain English, it will be less expensive to buy a new machine than to repair this one. Just be sure to try it out before you take it home.
