You can try using a WD-40 to lube it or I am thinking that you are not getting enough travel to release the pin. Is the head of the saw hitting on something not allowing full movement. Let me know

SOURCE: Need Manual / Info For Old Delta Chop Saw / Cold Saw

The machine should have a data plate somewhere. This may give blade RPM or motor rpm, then its out witrh the calculator to work out the blade speed. The crucial number however is not the rpm but the peripheral speed in feet or meters per minute.
Used to work with a power tool manufacturer, a standard woodcutting chop saw will safely cut alloy. Two things, watch the blade type, and watch out for metal swarf entering the motor and switchgear !.

SOURCE: The saw blade on my Porter cable 423mag saw is jammed tight.

Unless you can get a wrench on it I can't see anything else on the breakdown. You are aware that the knob is Left Hand thread I hope.

SOURCE: The blade on my Delta 36-540 table saw is jammed

Is there a 'wheel lock' on the shaft? You may have to dismantle the saw arbor mechanism to free the worm gear drive. If the saw has been unused for a long time and exposed to excess moisture, the worm drive could have rusted tight. Good luck!

Product just arrived, saw is stuck in cutting position


There is usually a safety or transit lock or pin which is engaged to lock the saw down for safety and for a more convenient way or transporting it.

The ones on my saws are a simple ball-headed pin sited close to the hinge of the saw which can be easily withdrawn once enough downward pressure has been applied to the saw to overcome the return spring pressure.

If you are talking chain saw there is a safety clutch lever immediately in front of the top handle. this has to be back against the handle and when the chain jams you simply push it forward with your fingers and the chain stops

Cannot get saw to lift up on toedo chop saw


If your handle has two buttons, they are usually a power swtich and safety button so the saw isn't accidently started. No, power should not matter in the function of the swing arm. Most chop saws lock down by way of a small chain from the base to the end of the handle. Most miter saws and some chop saws lock down by way of a pin located on the pivot point of the swing arm. The pin locks the swing arm down by passing through a hole in the base pivot bearing.

I need to know how to change the blade to my Milwaukee heavy duty abrasive cutoff machine.


Look around the housing where the switch handle bolts on. You should see a spindle lock pin. With the unit unplugged you want to push in the pin and when you go to tighten or loosen the blade bolt the spindle will lock into place. Sometimes you need to turn the spindle a bit for the lock to catch. Once you have changed the blade just release the pin as it is spring loaded.

How do I un lock the dw715 miter saw


If I understand correctly, your saw arm is all the way down and it won't raise so you can cut wood?

There is usually a small pin located at the pivot ... it is usually a steel cylinder about 1/4" in diameter that pushes in and out, sometimes it has a ring on the end ... use your fingers and pull it out. The lock pin is used when transporting or storing the chop saw.

One of my old chop saws, the pin got stuck and we had to tear it out with vice grips. And now the thing is hard to carry around or store because it's always open.

If this is a new saw >>> i want you to understand something about safety that I learned >>> there is a strong human instinct to reach in with your hand >>> to avoid this instinct takes practice >>> train you mind to be very slow with these saws >> no rush >> plenty of time to be deliberate >> wait for the saw to come to a full stop >> hope this helped > fyi, I hear that it doesn't hurt when cutting off a finger because it happens so fast, but that's what I've heard.

How do you get the running deck down?


If you are saying that the deck is in the folded position and will not fold down then pull the pin on the left side of the deck. If the pin is stuck then try and plug in the treadmill insert the safety key and push the down incline button on the console. This should make it so that the pin will un-jam.
