    I don't understand your post. What is meant by spiking? What kind of table saw are you referring to?

    Have you checked or cleaned out the switch assembly?
    Sounds like it is tripping or arcing or getting stuck near the ON position.

Blade brake dosen't work right away when switch is released. Takes a couple seconds of slow spin then the brake seems to stop the brake. Suggestions?


All blade brakes take a moment to stop the blade. If it were to engage as soon as the switch were released the inertia of the blade would do damage to the saw. Look at videos of your saw on youtube to ensure it is operating the same as others.

Where is the blade brake on the miter saw


The brake on electric motor driven tools is the field & armature. When running the switch provides power to both sides/poles of the field through the brushes and armature. When you release the switch half of the field is powered pulling the armature to a stop. If your bladed continues to spin when the switch is released, you need to replace the switch. The Ridgid part number for the proper switch is 503317000.

My Craftsman Table Saw doesn't go to 0 degrees- it stops @ 3-5 degrees


Most likely it is the trunnion under the saw. On the right hand side the wheel that changes the angle of the blade should fit into the cast iron part under the saw where the blade is. You'll have to tip the saw onto its back or side and check this connection as it probably needs some grease. If that's not it then oil the gears on the trunnion that control the saw angle.

Having problem get blade off table saw any hints


Unplug the saw, first and foremost.
Then see if your saw arbor has facets for a wrench behind the blade, and if so, try to find a slim wrench that fits there to hold the arbor while you attempt to loosen the arbor nut that holds the blad on. If that doesn't work, take a stick of wood, like a piece about 3/4" x 1 1/4" x 12-16" long, remove the throat plate from around the blade, wedge the stick between the blade teeth and the edge of the throat slot to hold the blade in place firmly, exerting levered force toward the center of the blade to hold it in place, and using the wrench, loosen the arbor nut. Make sure you are attempting to loosen in the correct direction. Depending which side of the blade the nut is on, some nuts are reverse threaded.
Good luck.

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

When turning off saw, blade continues spinning for 90 seconds or more.


Unfortunately, this is common on older model table saws. They do not have a blade brake and as far as I am aware it is nearly impossible to retrofit them.
If this is a newer model saw it's likely that the blade brake is malfunctioning and I have no experience with them.
Hope this helps and am very sorry if it doesn't.

Adjusting the saw blade for exactly 90 degrees on an old craftsman 10 " radial saw


If the saw is adjustable for angle we usually use an engineers square against the blade to get it upright and then you may find an adjustable stop or stops somewhere so you can set the position ready for the next time you need to set it.

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.

Blade does not turn


Disconnect the electric from the saw. Remove the throat blade cover. Bring the blade all the way up. Look for wood  caught between the blade and anything else. Finding none,remove blade. Try motor w/o blade. If it runs now,w/o the blade then the motor is likely ok . Reinstall blade. Now if it stil stalls, Replace motor.
