Re: delta table saw
The reset button is normally a thermal overload, using a bio-metallic strip to break the circuit. If it is old or has popped a few times it might have 'weakened' abit. Try replacing the thermal/reset button. If it still happens then something might be overheating and causing the problem.

Are you referring to the table top or rip fence alignment? The blade itself is not aligned. We adjust the table to parallel with blade and the rip fence should toe away from blade 0.01mm over the length of the rip fence to prevent binding.
If you can locate an old Delta Fence, I have seen those transplanted to a number of other table saws quite easily and reliably.
Otherwise aftermarket, there is the Beismeyer fence, it was adopted by Delta and licensed. You can get them through Delta or even Amazon. There are other vendors. You will want to add outfeed tables and extension tables as well.
You did not indicate which saw you have, but in general terms this applies to most saws.
Are you operating the saw on a 10 amp circuit or with a long extension cord? Table saws need at least a 15 amp circuit and should not be used with an extension cord. If absolutely necessary the extension cord should be no less than 12 guage. Tabel saws will run OK on a 10 amp circuit but as soon as you apply a load (try to cut wood) the power requirements go up to keep the saw turning. If you can, plug it into another outlet on a higher capacity circuit breaker or at least closer to the breaker box. If it still pops the breaker you may have bearing problems in the motor that are creating too much friction. This would make the motor work harder to turn so it would draw excessive power and trip the breaker.
