I can't help you out with parts but I have one and find it a good ripping saw. Not great for sheet material. Although you could build a frame around it to take 8x4.
When I have to cut sheet material I go to a friends. He has an altendorf...the lucky fupper!!

It depends what parts you are looking for. As you have no doubt seen on Ebay these are popular old saws that hold a decent value and from time to time assorted spares are listed. When i was looking for a decent tablesaw I was looking for either Startrite or Wadkin and although I ended up with a Wadkin I did see all sorts of components on offer. Currently there is a mitre gauge listed.

The other thing, of course, is this (and other) forums where there are many knowlegdable people who can help and offer advice to solve problems. Basically you have a decent saw that should continue to give years of service.

There are aftermarket fences that you can buy, but I'm sure you will be able to find plans for homemade fences as well as advice from us on this forum.

It's straightforward to build your own fence for a tablesaw., and one that is rock-solid to boot. You need to be able to drill and tap holes, but that is about the limit of required metal-working skills.
The materials are off-the-shelf bits and pieces like box section steel, nuts and bolts and a clamp. You'll also need the instructions, but I'm not allowed to advertise here so you'll have to follow the link in my signature to find them!
I've made several and they are every bit as robust as the best fences out there., at a fraction of the price.

Its good quality saw ?
Can I easily adjust/repair parts?
Lifting/angle blade mechanism is ok?
Do you have more images: the center, parts, accessories.
