There are no adjustments on the movement you described. If this is a new saw as indicated I would return for warranty repair/replacement.

Testimonial: "That is what I thought I couldnt see any way to adjust or tighten this. I contacted bosch and they also suggested returning it. I also contacted the qualified bosch repair place and they said they havent heard of this proplem . I must have just got a bad one. I contacted Home Depot and they are going to exchange it no problem. I mean I was just setting it up and hadnt even cut a piece of wood with it yet. Thanks for fed back"

Did you remove the center plate? It has to come out before you can remove the blade. Also make sure that the saw is unplugged before you go any further. If you still have questions contact me and I will do what I can. Also if you would like you can download a schematic of this tool at just type in your model and look at the schematic. Good luck

If you are mechanically inclined and it sounds that way do you have a volt ohms meter?? If so start at the cord and check the continuity to the brush holders. Why did you replace the field? You might have had a stuck brush or some other problem. Make sure the brushes move freely in the tubes and also look for discoloration on the commutator of the armature. Let me know what you find and I will try and help you thru the rest of it.

SOURCE: I have a 10'' table saw

If it cuts straight it's fine. It's likely just some play in the bearings. I wouldn't worry about it unless it starts to cut not so straight...

if it is smoking when power is switch on - there is a chance that the motor winding has shorted out. OR it could just have sawdust in the motor, ( use a air compressor to blow down the saw and motor and see if this solves the problem ).

Electric blade brake sounds like it is seized up. Upon starting table saw (bosch 4000), motor sounds like it is binding. How can I disengage the brake??

There is no electric brake on the Bosch 4100 table saw. If the motor sounds like it is being held back its possible the rear armature bearing has seized or the field coil is faulty. Both these problems cause the motr to not turn at full speed. The motor must be serviced.

I was cutting 2" dense foam insulation board,

The problem you have is a faulty field coil, the Bosch saws unfortunatly have a bit of an issue with this. The coil can be replaced separatly so you won't have to replace the whole motor. Bosch has a 1 yr warranty on thier table saw so this is a warranty replacment provided the saw was purchased within the year. If not the coil replacment is still cheaper than buying a whole new saw, but should really be done by a service center because of the level of difficulty of the repair.

For about six months my bosch table saw has imtermitent motor problems sometimes it works other times it doesn't now the motor is smoking how do i get a new motor

Parts diagram is here.

Looks like you can't just buy a new motor.

Service center locator is here. Click the Portable Electric & Battery Power Tools button. Put in your zip code and you can call around to see who can fix you up the quickest.

It looks like warranty on this saw is one year. Depending on how old your saw is, it may even be covered under warranty.
