Which saw? What materials are the Trunion assembly made of? I have a 50s era Toro that had been left in the weather, but with some patience, a fair amount of synthetic motor oil and only judicious amounts of heat from a heat lamp, plus wire brushing the acme threads relentlessly I finally got it freed up. Yours is not likely to need so much work, but similar methods should free it up

If WD40 were used- skip the oil and go straight to the carb cleaner first- You need to cut through the goo. Convair who developed it abandoned it promptly upon finding the gluing tendency.

once freed up- oil it with synthetic 20 weight motor oil. Never spray WD 40 on anything you want to move. If you spray some into a test tube or a jar you can see the waxes congeal in it.

Andis master clippers lose power


Oil the blades and then adjust them. You will need to add oil while grooming from time to time and then clean & oil them again when finished.

Hi, i have a BSA ECCO16 petrol lawnmower, and I have been looking for a replacement blade for a few months, the blade I have at the moment is a power devil 16'' blade with tails, it is cutting


talk with a mower shop
from your description you have a solid bar attached to the hub on the crankshaft with a cutter blade at either end
the cutter blades should have the rear section turned up to create an air flow to throw the gras out the back
you can replac the single blade with a disc that has 4 blades each turned up at the back and that makes cutting easier and a higher rate of discharge out the abck

New Homelite. Cut great for an hour, then the chain wouldn't grip or cut. Chain was loose so I tightened but still doesn't cut- just


The blade is no longer sharp, something not unusual after about an hour of cutting. How long a blade stays sharp depends on what type of wood you're cutting, whether the blade contacted the ground or anything other than wood at any time, and how hard you are working the bar through the wood. If you are cutting hardwood or something like railroad ties the lifespan of the blade is greatly reduced. You can easily sharpen the blade with a hand file or dremel tool with a chain saw blade kit on it or have the blade sharpened. Best practice is to have one or two extra blades so you can change them as they become dull.

I have weed eater/poulan 22" push lawn mower. It


Hi goldengear...

Make sure you have installed the blade on the right way, if it is installed upside down then it will "beat" the grass instead of cutting it and make a terrible cut, also make sure the blade is good and sharp.
The rough running may be due to trash in your carburetor, I would advise to clean your carburetor and also check you fuel tank for trash, water,etc. if there is any trash,water,etc in there then you need to also clean the fuel tank.
Do one more thing and check/clean/replace your fuel filter if you have one.

Husky yth1542xp. I've changed the blades, leveled


When levelling the deck, rotate the blades so that the right blade has one of its cutting edges at or near the right side center of the deck. Do the opposite with the left. Measure to the blades from the level ground, not to the deck. Try leveling that way.

I have an Andis outliner II I purchased a year ago. I recently changed the blade but it won't cut my hair. Do you kow why?


Sometimes the new blades from Andis are not sharpen enough to get that clean cut. also all trimmers need to be readjusted for power and alignment, plus sharpening the blade, it look like you need a complete sharpen & service on your Andis trimmer. check out Manny's Sharpening they have a Mail Order service, the service they provide is fast and they will sharpen make all the adjustment and give your trimmer more power and the blade will cut clean. They will even adjust the blade at your request on how you want that blade to be set at. Line Ups or Fade Cuts and even shave set. Manny's Sharpening been around for over 20 years and they have a very good rating on the net. Check it out Manny's Sharpening

My mowers cuts uneven I replaced the blades but it still cuts uneven how can I level it?


Park mower on a level flat surface ( a concrete garage floor is ideal ) lift deck up until you can put a piece of a 2x4 flat underneath the deck and lower deck until it just contacts the 2x4. loosen adjustment nuts or turnbuckles and adjust until the deck just starts to clear the 2x4. this should level your deck. Now , lift the deck and remove the 2x4. put blade height lever on a known cut length and with a tape measure, measure the tips of the blades from the floor to the blade tip...they should all be the same within 1/8 of an inch...if not then you either have a bent blade, bent spindle shaft, or spindle bolts are loose or misaligned. Your deck could be warped too...depending on how hard a lick it took...good luck !!! ;-D

Cutting stair stringers with circular saw


the start of the cut is starting to close up and pinch the back of the blade once you have gone past centre,if the blade is past the starting edge you can tap a small wedge into the start of the cut and that will stop it .I AM AN EXP SAW PERSON TO PROVE IT I ONLY HAVE A THUMB, AND ONE REATTATCHED FINGER ON ONE HAND .that happened on a bench saw only the back of the saw blade lifts the wood and for some reason i pushed it back down,DUMB ..Be careful and think before you do , But a wedge will solve your problem
