Question about Dewalt Saws

Height and angle adjusters are not locking tightly.

What is the deal with the locking knobs for the adjustment wheels? it seems to have only a fractin of throw which is not allowing it to lock the wheel. I have checked to see if it was assembled properly and it appears fine. the bushing spring washer and washer are behind the pin in that order.

How do I adjust the height of the drafting table?


You should loosen the knobs, adjust the height and then tighten the knobs once you are happy with the height. Screw it tightly and lock them in place.

Front wheels on manual mower lock when pushing for awhile.


1 Locate the height adjustment lever on the inside of the left rear wheel.
2 Kneel next to the mower and push the left height adjustment lever toward the center of the mower. This will unlock the lever from the locking pin on which the height is currently set.

3Rotate the lever toward the front of the mower to lower the height of cut, or toward the rear of the mower to raise the height of cut.

4 Release the lever over the locking pin closest to the desired height of cut.

5 Repeat these steps with the adjustment lever on the right-side rear wheel. Be sure to set the right wheel lever to the same position as the left-side wheel's lever for an even cut.

Poulan pro front wheel drive 22 inch mower. With height adjuster set to highest level, right front wheel keeps slipping out of the adjuster notch. Is there an adjustment screw somewhere?


Is the height adjuster tight on both sides? if loose the bolt holes may be elongated, both sides set the same? any wheel wobble indicating worn out wheels?.if it checks out as good put the machine an a known hard level surface such as a garage floor and check the clearance by turning the wheels by hand without putting pressure on them, If the wheel still slips the mowing deck may be warped or bent. if all wheels are original there shouldn`t be a question of mismatched wheels ie:different sizes.

I want to know how to fix the alignment on my 1995 honda accord ex.


Before making wheel alignment adjustment, perform the following checks:
  1. Tires should be equal in size and runout must not be excessive. Tires and wheels should be in balance, and inflated to manufacturer's specifications.

  2. Wheel bearings must be properly adjusted. Steering linkage and suspension must not have excessive looseness. Check for wear in tie rod ends and ball joints.
  3. Steering gear box must not have excessive play. Check and adjust to manufacturer's specifications.
  4. Vehicle must be at curb height with full fuel load and spare tire in vehicle. No extra load should be on vehicle.
  5. Vehicle must be level with floor and with suspension settled. Jounce front and rear of vehicle several times and allow it to settle to normal curb height.
  6. If steering wheel is not centered with front wheels in straight-ahead position, correct by shortening one tie rod adjusting sleeve and lengthening opposite sleeve equal amounts.
  7. Ensure wheel lug nuts are tightened to torque specifications
Ride Height Adjustment

Before adjusting alignment, check riding height. Riding height must be checked with vehicle on level floor and tires properly inflated. Passenger and luggage compartments must be unloaded. Bounce vehicle several times, and allow suspension to settle. Visually inspect vehicle from front to rear and from side to side for signs of abnormal height.
Measure riding height. See figure. Riding height between left and right sides of vehicle should vary less than 1′ (25.4 mm). If riding height is not within specification, check suspension components and repair or replace them as necessary.
Wheel Alignment Procedures

Honda recommends using commercially available computerized 4-wheel alignment equipment. Follow equipment manufacturer instructions to obtain vehicle alignment settings. Use following procedures for necessary adjustments.
Civic Camber Adjustment
Compare camber settings with vehicle manufacturer recommendations. If camber is incorrect, check for bent or damaged front suspension components. Replace faulty components. Recheck camber.
Civic Caster Adjustment
DO NOT use more than 2 shims. If more than 2 shims are required to adjust caster angle, check for bent or damaged suspension components.
Compare caster settings with vehicle manufacturer recommendations. If caster is incorrect, check for bent or damaged front suspension components. Replace faulty components. Recheck caster.
Civic Toe-In Adjustment

  1. Secure steering wheel in straight-ahead position. Measure front wheel toe-in. If adjustment is needed, loosen tie rod lock nuts. Turn both tie rods equally in the same direction until front wheels are in straight-ahead position and toe-in reading is correct. Tighten tie rod lock nuts. Reposition tie rod boots if twisted.
  2. Ensure parking brake is released. Check rear wheel toe-in. If adjustment is needed, hold adjusting bolt on rear compensator arm and loosen lock nut. See figure. Adjust rear toe-in by sliding rear control arm until rear toe-in is correct. Install NEW lock nut, and tighten it while holding adjusting bolt.

  • Camber - Measurement in degrees.
    • Front: 0 (range -1 to 1)
    • Rear: 0.33 (range -1.33 to 0.67)

How to adjust height on tractor mower model no. 917.270812? I turn the adjustment knob and it will lock in only on the highest and lowest heights and nowhere in between.


You need to turn that knob to its highest point with the deck height lever to its highest setting. Now turn that knob counter clockwise a few turns and let the deck lever all the way down. That knob will stop the lever part way down. If it mowes to high rase that deck lever again and turn that knob counter clockwise some more and let that deck lever down again. Repete till you have the correct cutting height. If you were cutting to low turn the knob clockwise insted of counter clockwise in the instruction above. The knob only set the stop of the deck lever. Once set the deck lever lifts the deck up and holds it but when you let that lever down it returns to its mowing set height.

I need help on how to replace bit on router craftsman style


You didn't state the model number. The older Craftsmen routers had a red lever lock on the top of the router, one position allows the spindle to turn, the other position locks the spindle. Here's the instruction for the older style routers:

  1. Unplug the tool.
  2. To lock the spindle press the red button in and slide it to the locked position.
  3. Unlock the height adjustment knob.
  4. Raise the router motor using the height adjustment collar until you can get a wrench onto the collet nut.
  5. Loosen the nut until it turns freely.
  6. The bit may still be locked in the spindle, tap it gently (not on the blade!).
  7. The bit will come loose in the spindle and can be removed.
  8. Replace the bit, tighten the nut snug but don't use excessive force.
  9. Unlock the spindle, returning the red lever/button to the free position.
  10. Adjust the height of the bit as you wish, then lock down the motor using the locking knob.

Bought model 3400 skil table saw. have no manual. can't find control for tilting blade. how do i tilt blade


This model does not have a knob on the side.
There is only a locking lever on the front next to a single rotating wheel for height adjustments. To tilt the blade simply twist the locking lever to the left and push the height adjustment wheel to the right. It can be a bit stiff at times to move.

Picture is too wide, how can I adjust the width?


Can't you set/adjust that on menu settings? If not, and no adjustable knob inside for width adjustment. You are now dealing its adjustment with MCU, or its eeprom ic. Check its required power supply it should be within spec. Better to have an schematic if you deals within its electronics parts.

Carpet Height Adjusment


In addition to the tab that contacts the bottom of the slider, there are 2 protusions on the adjustable wheel plate that move through holes in the housing, but only when the handle is tilted to begin vacuuming. The wheel plate has a spring that forces the tab against the slider. As the handle is moved to the upright position, the protusions move back through the holes, taking the tab away from the slider and the wheel plate locks in its highest position. Therefore, the position of the slider has no effect while the handle is upright and locked. Hope this helps.
