Question about Saws
Seldom tilted to 45 idid but now icant gct back to 90 took top off blew out and cleanded sprayed silicon white grease and wd40 on proper parts but still jamed
Do not use WD40 on anything you want able to move- it is an effective glue.
If you routinely used WD 40 on the saw- move it outdoors so you can spray the trunion with carb cleaner and then put a heat lamp on it for a while. This should soften the WD40 goo- Convair who originally developed the product stopped using it once this tendency to glue things together was noticed. They sold the rights and the formula to a former employee who made WD 40 what it is today.
It has it's uses, but not in precision mechanisms. I use it with pumice to clean the rust off machined iron table tops- that was where i found out just how strong it can be- I had just finished on saw table and gave it a light spray and merely set a 7 inch blade on the table. I came back about 2 weeks later, 1 inch of the blade overhang the 50s era Craftsman table saw- I could lift the side of the saw- if I wanted to tip the saw over just holding the blade- I could have done so. It came loose with starting ether.
you may need to reapply the carb cleaner a few times to was enough of the goo out of the trunion. Once loose again- get some 20 weight synthetic oil and brush it on- set the angle only midway so you can get fresh oil into the spaces occupied by goo as you move the arbor back up to 90 then back down to 45 then back to 90.
As I said, WD40 has it's uses, but not for anything precision.
