Question about Table Saws

1 Answer

Delta 10 I have a 10-yr. old saw that's seen occasional use in my basement shop. Yesterday the blade started whining and seizing while ripping a length of 1" cherry. By going REALLY slowly, I got through the piece. Tried again today, and the blade now stops at the slightest pressure from the workpiece. Just stops cold. Thoughts?  Thanks.

    That's a 10" saw, Model 36-600.

    Thanks for responding.


    No, the motor keeps humming. It's not like when it overheats and trips off. It's on, but the blade won't budge until I pull the workpiece away from it again.

    All taken care of...someone came by, realized it was just the belt, and replaced it for me.


    Thanks anyway!

    The belt was the problem, but replacing the blade is my next step as well. I always use a very thin kerf blade, but this one's a few years old and I'm sure it's working harder than it needs to.


    But thanks for the advice; already on it.

    Does the motor stop aswell? If so, does it restart right away or do you have to leave it a while first?

Replace the blade. It is very dull. Cherry is very hard wood and should be only cut with a very sharp blade.

Table saw blade alignment


Are you referring to the table top or rip fence alignment? The blade itself is not aligned. We adjust the table to parallel with blade and the rip fence should toe away from blade 0.01mm over the length of the rip fence to prevent binding.

New to table saw use, have my husbands old 10 craftsman, was learning to rip with it doing fine, then it started to bog down during cut until the blades stops, moving. put on a new blade and noticed...


If I understood correctly, you started using your husband's table saw and while ripping boards, you managed to stall out the blade AND motor?! If that's the case, you probably have a very dull blade and are binding your board on the blade. Neither is safe and it sounds like trouble is brewing.

First and foremost, get someone to show you how to safely and properly use and adjust the saw if you are new to wood working and power tools. That saw is capable of turning your lumber into a high speed missal if you do things improperly.

It also sounds like you tried installing a new 10" saw blade. Changing the blade requires 2 wrenches. One to hold the arbor and one to tighten the nut. The blade itself should rest on the arbor between two large washers. Also make sure you install the blade so the front face of the cutter teeth face you and rotate toward you. Make sure the saw is unplugged when changing the blade and never turn on your saw with a loose blade.

Rip capacity is too small (24


If you can locate an old Delta Fence, I have seen those transplanted to a number of other table saws quite easily and reliably.

Otherwise aftermarket, there is the Beismeyer fence, it was adopted by Delta and licensed. You can get them through Delta or even Amazon. There are other vendors. You will want to add outfeed tables and extension tables as well.

You did not indicate which saw you have, but in general terms this applies to most saws.

Delta 33-890 making loud harmonic squeal


talked to Delta tech and he said that it is a common sound that is particular to this tool. Using a blade with more teeth (80 and up) splits the air better. anti vibration cuts laser ut into the blade also a must. i also changed to a lighter blade. i found that the heavier one wants to hold on to the sound better.......if that makes sense..

The belt in the motor of my 10 inch delta table saw broke its a Bando synchronous 100XL belt...Think I can find a replacement...However, before it broke whenever I started the saw I noticed unusual sounds...


I have the delta 10 inch cabinet saw with the uni-fence, I bought just before somebody at delta smartened up with the left tilt blade, that is the worst design I have ever seen. I came real close to buying a Powermatic the same day I got this thing. Anyway, my saw sounds like a mack truck in reverse slamming the dump gate when it starts, I don't think there is anything to oil, it has bearings on the shaft. I found a ring of some sort on the floor one day that fell out of the saw, broken in half, I have never found where it came from. We just laugh at it, It is a bad saw. I bought the 12 Rockwell/delta planer the same week, Oh boy did we have fun with that, instantly went through the set of knives on it, maybe 3 passes, I said what the heck. I called delta and told them this is the biggest piece of junk I have ever seen, I said for $1300 it should put a finish on the board when it comes out, and it should have carbide knives, I said, If I had know it was made in Taiwan, i would have bought a grizzly. and saved $500. And gotten a better planer. She said, I'm sorry, I can send you some new knives. I sold it. Still have the saw though. Never had problems with the bearings. Hope this helps.

Need fence for radial arm saw


Most guys will attach a sacrificial particleboard sub top about 24" deep (per model) then towards the back of the saw attach a 3-4" square particle board rip, screw it down, then attach a 5/4 to 6/4 square maple fence approx. 4" tall and attach that to the 3-4" wide rip of particle board. then place a additional particleboard top in front of the maple fence. That will give you a 3-1/4" tall fence. all you would need to do is sqare it to the blade and attach it to the saw. Hope this helps

How do I align the saw blade with the saw table I have a 10 inch Delta Contractor's saw that is about 10 years old. The blade is not straignt with the miter slot. andyc@bergeralllied.com


The Blade Arbor is held to the bottom of the table with mounting screws and stop/adjusting screws. Loosen the mounting screw and adjust the stop screws to make Blade true with miter slot.

Re furbish old Craftsman 10'' table saw


It all depends on how much patience you have. It will cut ok, if you feed slowly and use a rip blade to rip with instead of a combination blade. (Buy one with only 36 teeth or 40 teeth). A sharp blade is always a lot easier and safer to use than that old rusty thing that is trying to grind its way through a piece of 2X. Another tip you might try is to put a coat of paste wax on the blade before you start. It will help if there's a lot of pitch building up as you cut.
Otherwise, more hp will be less likely to bog down and overheat, and will allow you to push through denser and harder woods without the danger of overpowering the motor. But even then, a sharp rip blade is a wonder and a joy to use!
