    I have an old Delta 10" radial arm saw that overloaded and kicked off. I can not get the reset button to work and the saw will not come on any more. How hard is it to replace the reset button and are there any references to tell you how?.

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.

Table saw blade alignment


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.

Rip capacity is too small (24


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.

When I flip the switch it foes not run. I used the saw for several cuts, I tried to rip another pirce and it just wold ot run. Tried the rset button and it seems like it is stuck. Wwiriing is all...


Sometimes switch gets dust inside the "sealed" switch. Had 50/50 luck taking apart and blowing out. Can test it after switch is out to see if it is faulty by jumping wires.

Trying to cut any size piece of wood the saw blows the circuit breaker at the panel 1x4 piece


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.

Motor not working on Delta table saw: I just got a used Delta table saw for free, the previous owner said the motor wasn't working. I wonder if it could just be a switch... how could I check that? I also...


Ok, the motor turns, but throws sparks on the brushes. This is normal to an extent for universal motors used on that type of equipment.

Try reassembling the saw, and put a blade on it, then try it. If it runs, try cutting a piece of scrap 1x, both crosscut & rip. If the motor can't hold the load, you may still have to replace it.

Replace the blade. It is very dull. Cherry is very hard wood and should be only cut with a very sharp blade.
