My guess is you are talking about a table saw. If this has a plastic handle, the D shaped hole in the handle has probably become stripped. An easy fix it to put a hose clamp (the kind that you tighten with a screwdriver) around the hub of the handwheel. You might also have to put a shim (perhaps a small screw) into the flat space in the hub to help make the fit a little tighter. I did this fix on my own saw many years ago, and the fix has lasted much longer than the original handle.

How to lower the blade please


Pauline, most mowers have a lever on each wheel that sits in a grove. if you push these levers to the mower side you should be able to raise or lower that wheel. get all of them the same height. there are 4 of these. if it don't have these levers then there is a bolt that holds each wheel on if you take the bolt off you can put it in another hole to raise or lower your deck. good luck

How do I Lower my yard machine mower to cut grass shorter?


there should be adjustments on each wheel.
Place the machine on a flat level surface and adjust each wheel so the blades are at the height you want it to be. Make sure all the wheels are all at the same height. Usually, the bottom of the deck lip to the floor equal all around.

I can't raise my table saw blade when I crank the handle


My DeWalt Table saw does this,and for me its cleaning with a air compressor and nozzle. I cand seem to prevent it though. I tried grease on time and it just plugged up faster. I want to try a gravite lube next. To me it seems to be a desiegn flaw and I just clean the spline thead shaft that lowers and raises the blade. So far I just settled into a maintance air spray and it seems to work well enough.

My Grizzly table saw height wheel is locked and won't turn and I can't raise or lower the blade


Make sure blade lock is off!! Give it a good cleaning of excess saw dust from underneath. You may need to clean years of accumulated sawdust off the gear wheels and shafts. If there is rust anywhere, use WD40 or PB Blaster and let sit overnight to free stuck parts.Then lubricate all moving parts with light oil or grease. Vaseline along with some 3 in 1 or sewing machine oil is what I use, but feel free to substitute.

I can no longer raise or lower the blade on my 10" sears table saw' model # 113.298032.


After some use the threads on the raising mechanism can become clogged with sawdust and resin.
UNPLUG the saw and look underneath up inside the box. there is a rod that runs from the wheel you turn to raise and lower the blade into the actual mechanism. Brush it clean and give it a good douse of WD40 to help clean it. That rod must turn freely so look for any obstructions that will prevent that from happening

How do I raise the height of the cutting blade on a Flymo LC400PD, Please


Remove the spark plug wire - so it won't accidentally start.
Place the mower on it's side - with the OIL FILL side closest to the ground [ it should not leak oil but be sure it doesn't before allowing it to stay that way.

REMOVE the BOLTS and NUTS from EACH wheel - you will see then the other holes - then place the bolts and wheels in the hole you desire. Each hole SHOULD represent about 11 mm or 7/16ths of an inch change UP = LOWER - down from where it is originally = LONGER GRASS

The accelerator pedal is not working properly. Especially when trying to go up hill. I have to keep pushing & letting go, pushing & letting go. even when it starts to move. Also, the right blade...


Hello,

I am guessing that this was posted in wrong category.

You mention that you have to keep pushing / letting go of the accelerator. Is the engine RPM changing, or is the tractor surging, when you do this? What happens if you keep a steady pressure on the pedal? Isn't the throttle control via a lever on the panel?

Your uneven blade height can be caused by a multitude of issues.
1) If the spindles were changed, the wrong spindle may have been used on one side or the other.
2) The wrong blade adapter has been used on one of the spindles.
3) Mower deck has been bent
4) Mower deck is binding. Try raising it all the way up, and lowering all the way down. See if the uneven cut changes at both levels (all up or all down).
5) Blade is bent on one side, though this would usually cause such a ruckus and vibration it would be quite noticeable.
6) Belt is slipping. Yes, sounds strange, but if blade speed changes significantly, then the position where the grass is actually cut changes because the grass can "lean over" more.
7) Using a mulching attachment in tall grass can cause 1 blade to clog, and the cut grass that is swirling bends over other grass that needs to be cut.
8) Mower deck support bracket has been bent
9) Mower deck wheel has a bad bearing, and doesn't support the deck at same height as other side.
10) Mower deck is cracked / bent at a support location
11) You have lost a retaining pin at a support bracket and the bracket is loose.
12) A spindle's bearings are worn out, and the spindle is "jumping" as it turns.

If the blades are directly beside each other where they blades will overlap, it is normal for a small amount of height difference to occur. But, most decks have off set blades, one slightly in front of the other.

you should be able to raise the deck all the way, and pull the tractor's front wheels up onto something (landscape timber?) to get more access, then measure blade height in relation to bottom of the deck. If different, then you are looking at wrong blade / adapter or a spindle issue. If the blades are the same height, then you are likely looking at a deck support issue / binding in linkage.

How to adjust mower deck height


There should be two threaded rods with a nut on them that goes from the frame to the deck. Check the height of each blade and which ever side is out of balance you can disconnect that sides rod (usually held onto the mount with a clip or cotter pin) and turn the rod to either raise or lower your deck until it is level.

The above was for leveling your deck.

If you just need to raise or lower the deck depends on if you have a lever on the right side with a push button on top just depress the push button and push forward to lower or pull back to raise.
It might have a round knob that you turn to raise or lower.

Good luck
