No power to band saw

Is there power at the wall outlet? If yes is it 110 or 220V depending on what it requires? If yes, check the continuity of the saws electrical cord and on/off switch.

How do i fill transition cylinder to what level

I suggest you contact Ellis. On my 7x12 band saw, I fill it with hydraulic fluid until it comes out in the valve body. For Ellis bandsaw, there's a pipe near top of the cylinder, fill with light hydraulic until oil flows back out of hole. The proper level is at the pipe plug hole.

How do i turn on a ryobi band saw

First check that it's plugged into a good outlet. Either try another electrical item in that outlet or try the band saw in an outlet you know to be good. Next step; the power switch on the riser has to have a yellow switch key (Ryobi part number 0121010232) in it to work properly. Without the key the switch will not activate the motor. If that's all OK, you should use a volt meter to first check that power is getting to the switch through the cord, then through the cord to the motor. If that's all in order you may have a problem with the motor that can only be tested by a service center with the proper equipment to check the capacitor and armature conductance.

No power to motor

I would start with confirming that the cord is good and is connected OK to the motor. If there is a plate on the motor covering the a little compartment where the cord is wired in to the motor, remove it. See if you have power at this point. Best way to do that is with a non-contact voltage tester. They are about the size of a fat pen and can be had for about $10--- and they are an absolutely wonderful tool to have.

Replacement of power cord on a Dewalt 708 type 3 slide mitre

Not that bad, I would go to and look at an explosion before taking yours part. You have to remove the top of the handle, there is cover on the side towards the blade that is tight to remove and then the strain relief on the tube. The cord set that you need is 330078-98 list for 16.76. It is a 10ft 16-2 wire. Just take your time and if you are handy with tools you should have no problem. Let me know if I can help I work on them all the time.
