    The original switchbox on that saw is probably worth $200

    I have repaired quite a few machines considered to be hopeless scrap metal...... there is usually a way.
    There is a way, I've done it a couple of times which is how I know of the problem and how much it costs. Stellite weld to build up the damaged teeth, then remachine them. The teeth are worm drive and engineering companies that will mess around to set up the required machinery to do a one off repair like that are few and far between, and charge like wounded bulls for the job. Its generally not worth the cost if you can avoid it.

    That said, if you can get a Wadkin Bursgreen sawbench in reasonable order, it will be with you for the rest of your life, and several generations to follow.

    Hmmm, I have cut worm wheels on my lathe.
    You just need to make the "cutter" which can be relatively crude, case hardened steel.

    Its generally not the worm part thats the issue, its the quadrant.
