Question about Bosch 4100 09 10" Worksite Table Saw W/Gravity Rise Stand

1 Answer

Blade won't rise

The blade goes down fine, but when I try to raise it, it gets harder and harder until it won't move at all. It goes down easy though.

It lowers easy because of the weight of the motor. What I would try and do is unplug tool first and lay on its backside and try and blow all the dirt from the gears/slide assembly. Look for a broken part where the shaft goes thru and if none use a DRY LUBE spray and also check for proper meshing of the gears. After lubrucating while saw is laying on its back look at the gear for any possible binding. Set upright and try again.

Testimonial: "Thanks, it goes up now but every time the crank hits the 12o clock position, it clicks and drags slightly. I can't see anything in the gears. Nothing seems broken or bent?"

SOURCE: It's extremely hard to turn the handle to raise

Bosch has a technical bulletin to address this problem, it requires the adding of shim washers under the gear and above the hex nut. If you are still having a problem let me know and I will get part numbers for you.

The blade is hard to raise and lower


Check the threaded rods that turn to move the motor assembly up and down. These rods are sometimes oiled or greased and this just attracts saw dust and eventually binds up the system. Clean as best you can and the threads they turn in to raise the blade. Also check the tilt rods.
Another thing to check is the joints everything pivots on. Occasionally a small peice of wood can get in just the right (or wrong) place and the motor assembly won't move because it's blocking the pivot points.

My powermatic table saw is very hard to raise and lower the blade and i have removed the knob that tightens the handle so the blade does not move and its still very difficult to move the blade


You need to do some maintenance on your saw. First unplug it. Then blow out the sawdust from inside the saw, especially around the trunnion ways and gears and worm gears that engage them to raise/lower and tilt the saw. Use a good quality lubricant to lube these worm gears and the shafts and pivot points. I use motor oil, have for years, and find it does a better job and lasts longer than any kind of grease or silicone. Use an oil can with a long spout so you can direct the oil where needed, then move the saw up/down or right/left to work the oil into the worm gear and mechanism. In a pinch WD40 is fine, though it won't last as long. Periodic re oiling will maintain the mechanism in peak condition, and the drops of oil you spill in the process won't do any damage to your so. No, it won't get gummed up with sawdust. Try it, you'll like it.

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

First check to make sure you can turn each blade by hand, with the mower off. If neither blade spindle is frozen remove the deck and make sure all the pulleys move freely and function like they should. The cable should have been operating a spring loaded pulley arm that applied tension to the deck belt to make the blades function. Some times build up with block that from moving or rust will make it stick.

Runs, but nothing comes out


Check the filters and the fan blade it may have come loose. Do you still hear the motor running? Get me the model number on the unit. Sorry it took so long to get back to you I have been sick the past few months.
