SOURCE: lubrication and maintenance reciprocal saw DeWalt

Before you attempt any of this I would recommend going to and see what the inside of this tool looks like. It appears that you need to remove part of the front gearcase to get into the lube. The back e.g. brushes is not that big of a deal. If there is a Service Center near you they have a Max repair rate that they will fix anything on this saw at a preset firm price and if it is less that is what they would charge.

SOURCE: need to lubricate the drive cable on homelite gas edger

Bicycle chain lube works well in these situations. It's usually a teflon based lubricant, light weight, with good penetration, and little tendency to gum up in the long run.
In a pinch, WD40 will work as well...though it will tend to gather more dirt and dust. If you have rust issues, WD40 will drive the moisture out...
Make sure the moving parts attached to the end of the cable are freely moving as well. Frequently they are the cause of the friction, rather that the cable itself...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

SOURCE: I have just purchased a Delta Rockwell Industrial

The table can be cleaned and waxed with a good quality paste wax like Trewax clear. If it has rust, you can use automative polish/cleaner and a rag or fine scotch pads to get the rust out, then wax the surface to protect it. Period waxing will maintain a low friction surface through use. Old timers used to recommend rubbing the bare steel table with talc to seal the pores, but I find was is more readily available and gives a better surface for use...Wax is also good on the moving parts of the fence.
The worm gears and trunnions can be cleaned with compressed air and regular 30w motor oil in a pump can. Maybe a soft wire brush or toothbrush if needed to remove built up resin and pitch. If there's a really heavy build up on the gears, get some OxiSolve bit and blade cleaner from Woodworker's supply and it will safely dissolve the gunk to a consistency you can scrub off with a toothbrush. I maintain these moving mechanical parts with oil, which an old pro recommended years ago, and have found it doesn't contribute to sawdust build up as you think it might, not nearly so much as an assembly lube or white grease, and makes raising and lower the blade a joy. If you're concerned about dryness, you can try triflow or some kind of bicycle chain lube, but I've decided the expense isn't worth the results, and oil is readily available when I need it...
If replacement parts are available for your model, try here. Otherwise, and for older machines, you might find a manual or parts info at this site.
After market fences are available for your saw, and depend on user preference. I've been very happy with my Biesemeyer fence, after using it (and many others) for 22 years. It is also heavy duty.

I have an old Rockwell 368 circular saw 81/4".

Well, here is the link for the breakdown of your peticular saw

As far as the manual, the closest you will get without finding one at a garage sale is the 368-1 Type 1. When Porter-Cable absorbed Rockwell's tool line, they kept this saw and threw a -1 on the end. Some parts are different, but the operation is the same, thus, the manual should provide any information you may need, but I'm sure that you would just like to have it, and probably don't need it. Here is the link for that. Just click on the Instruction PDF Icon.

I hope this helps.

Porter Cable Random Orbital Sander rotates but does not "orbit"

Just solved my problem with Porter Cable 333 orbital sander which just groaned. I thought the worst. I carefully took it apart on the garage floor and immediately suspected it needed lubrication as the motor turned hard. I used my flexible long plastic tube lubrication and put some on the bottom bearing shaft the best I could. I worked it around and around. I began to feel it turning easier. I applied more oil and kept moving and it became completely free. I put a drop on the top bearing even though it was loose. I put it all back together and it works like new. Lesson: do not look for the worst when a tool quits. Suspect the culprit to be lack of lubrication!!!
