I have found some quality threads on Northfield #4 Table Saws. Now that I have two in the queue, I'm creating this to get the information organized:

Northfield's #4 page: http://northfieldwoodworking.com/tablesaws/4saw.htm

Northfield's #4 brochure: http://northfieldwoodworking.com/Brochures-PDF/TiltingArborVarietySaws.pdf

Technical Information:

Arbor, motor, wrenches, etc.:

  • 1" arbor nut takes a 1 5/8" wrench (1961 machine)
  • 1 1/8" arbor nut takes a 1 11/16" wrench (1971 machine, believe 1 1/8" is "standard")
