    Thanks for the response Rowdy. I noticed this problem after not using the tool for maybe 6 months. Would you call WD-40 a penetrating oil?
    Or should I look for something else?

    Thanks,

    Yes it is also a water displacement and lubricant. I use it all the time on the table saws that I deal with and sometimes after using it I use a spray type dry lubricant, but you don't have to. Let me know how it goes.

    Do I understand that you can't raise the blade or tilt the head. If so what I would do it use a good penetrating oil on the threads and assembly and try working the unit up and down a little at a time and spray some on the mechanism that tilts the head. Let me know if this is incorrect and I will look at a breakdown and come up with something else.

Sounds like you've got problems with the armature commutator or one of the bearings is bad. Your best bet is to take it out and visit a local motor repair shop to asses the problem. A new motor could be the answer but at some heavy duty expense.

SOURCE: How to change blade on 10" Craftsman table saw?

you need to grab the blade with something.maybe some pliers(if you are not going to refurbish blade) and loosen the nut in the center of the blade. i think it is a left hand thread(cw to loosen) because of the rotation of the blade. if the nut is on the left when looking from the front it is probably left handed. make sure it's unplugged and wear leather gloves so you don't get cut. install in reverse...

Use a carpenter square to allign the blade both vertically and horizontally with your guide. This works very well.

SOURCE: Saw runs continuously

The on off switch has a contact that has probably fused together from making and breaking causing an arc. You may try giving it a good 'wrap' with the back of a screw driver to free it, or replace the switch.

I did a 45 degree bevel cut with my Dewalt portable table saw and now I can not get the blade back to a 90 degree position, any thoughts?


Did you check to see if the saw has a locking nut on the front of the bevel gauge handle? Its possible you just locked it into position and forgot to unlock.

I have a 1/16" tilt


Your question is not very clear. Here are several answers.
By tilt you may be speaking of bevel adjustment 0 - 45 Some saws have hidden under the table or obvious positive bevel stops or screws in the table top for 90 and 45 degree. Adjust them.
You may have a bent or warped blade causing the "tilt."
Thin blades may be stiffened with blade stabilizing washers $14
With the saw unplugged remove the blade. Grab the threaded arbor shaft and pull it up and down. Next push the shaft straight in and out. If there is wiggle the bearings are worn and may need replacing.

Hello stella....... There is a locking mechanism on the miter saw to lock it on whatever setting you require. loosen that locking mechanism and the saw should move for you. Here is a schematic of the parts so you can see exactly which parts are involved

My craftsman 10-inch radial saw (model#113.199200) just stopped working. I had it in the driveway cutting some wood without any problems.

There should be a locking knob on the front of the crank or a locking collar behind the crank depending on which model or age of the saw that you need to tighten down to lock the arbor height.

I have a Ryobi folding table saw and I learned how to adjust the bevel through trial and error. There are two allen key machine set screws in the top of the table. One for 90 and the other for 45. I backed the 90 screw off past 90 and than set the blade exactly at 90. Now I screwed the allen screw in to touch the blade. It seemed to work for me. Mind you it will have to be checked often to insure a perfect cut. Good luck.
