Delta shopmaster saw blade stuck down and won't go back up

I am using a borrowed saw that I am using to cut interior trim. The saw arm is stuck down and won't go back up. Any suggestions? I have looked all over it to see if it has a switch or something.

Sounds silly, but on the right side there is a blue knob.Push down on the saw handle and pull out the blue knob. That should release the saw arm.

Pull the saw apart and inspect the parts, something is broken that is for sure, only a through inspection will reveal the cause, it is a never before heard problem.

I lost my key for my Craftsman radial arm saw C48-BC-1C2. It looks like a universal yellow key. Where can I get a new one? Elaine

You can use a plastic wall outlet plug used for childproofing outlets. Trim the width of the spades a little and it will fit right in.

RK7136 locked in safe position . How do I unlock

I am guessing you got an answer by now, but I saw on Amazon someone asked this recently. I remember this problem when I got mine. I assume you mean the arm that lowers and raises the saw, not the locking mechanism for the table. As you face the saw, look at the guard. There is a slightly curved arm that goes from the guard toward the back of the saw. On the piece the guard arm attaches to at the back of the saw on the left side, there is a "pin" that sticks out on the left side. It looks like a bolt that is longer than the others near it. Gently push down on the top of the front of the saw to take pressure off the arm pin, and then just pull the pin to your left, like you were trying to remove it. It doesn't come out all the way, but releases the lock. If you have kids around, best to lock it when not using first. Oh...and their manual sucks!

I have to replace the power switch on my Delta Shopmaster 10" radial arm saw. I have the switch, which is a Delta 438010170206S Rocker Switch has (4) terminals. I need to know which wire goes where????

How many wires do you have? The switch is probably a 2 pole, On-Off. If you have 2 wires, connect them to two terminals on one side of the switch (use an ohm-meter to find which terminals make-break). If there are 4 wires, connect the black and white power cord wires to different sides of the switch. Then connect the two motor wires to the two remaining terminals. DO NOT CONNECT THE BLACK AND WHITE POWER WIRES TO THE MAKE-BREAK TERMINALS OF THE SWITCH. This creates a short in the power cord and will trip a breaker.

Delta 33-890 making loud harmonic squeal

talked to Delta tech and he said that it is a common sound that is particular to this tool. Using a blade with more teeth (80 and up) splits the air better. anti vibration cuts laser ut into the blade also a must. i also changed to a lighter blade. i found that the heavier one wants to hold on to the sound better.......if that makes sense..

My LS1013 saw kicks back toward the end of cut, it's worst with wide boards. How can I correct this? John L. Edmonds

John, These sliding saws are a lot like radial arm saws except it is possible to pull the slide forward, then lower the saw and cut while pushing. Some people operate their saws like this, but it's dangerous unless you use both hold-down clamps and board has no warp. When operated in this manner, the blade is pushing the board up. If the board has any room to move, it can kick. This may be what you are experiencing. On the other hand, if you operate the saw like a radial arm saw, that is, by pushing the slide all of the way back, lowering the saw and then pulling the slide toward you to finish the cut - then the blade is pushing the board down, which is safer, especially if you don't use the hold-downs. However, if the saw is not correctly aligned such that the blade is not quite parallel to the slide, then the back of the blade will tend to lift up on the board on one side. You can test for this mis-alignment with a dial indicator. Just slide the saw forward or back as the indicator rubs along the surface of the blade. Since the saw is moving along the slide, the indicator should move very little if the blade is parallel to the slide. good luck, Al K

Wuich way should the teeth be facing on radial arm saw with or against rotation?

As you face the saw, the edge of the blade closest to you is going down. The teeth should be pointing down also. On any circular saw (table saw, miter saw, etc.) the teeth of the saw should point in the direction of rotation. It might seem odd because as you draw the radial arm saw toward you, the saw wants to "climb" and pull itself along through the material. Some saws are equipped with a damping device to prevent the saw from lurching forward, most are not. You need to pull the saw toward yourself slowly and steadily to keep it from climbing. good luck
