SOURCE: can't get chain to tighten

Hello Ted:
This is a very good OM for a Remington. Look at figure 8 on page 8. The adjustment block MUST engage one of the holes in the bar, Then do 1 through 5 as illustrated and you cannot go wrong.
http://shoppingcart.msservicecompany.com/msservice_net/product_files/113005-01D/113005-01D_OM.pdf
If the block is engaged, the bar nuts are finger tight , and the adjuster will not tighten the chain it must be stripped. If not stripped, follow this example.

If it still causing problems try a local saw shop where someone can see what the problem is. Ask them to demonstrate please.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.

I don't have this particular model in my shop right now but almost all circular saws work like this. From the blade side of the saw, the spring attaches to a hole in the blade guard usually around the two to three o'clock position. With the blade guard correctly positioned on the saw, wrap the spring clockwise around the bottom of the hub and back up the nine o'clock side. There is another hole or tab inside the top of the upper blade guard somewhere around the twelve to two o'clock position. Hook the end of the spring there and test the guard for free movement throughout it's range of motion.

My saw blade isnt moving up and down. The jig saw sounds like its running just the blade isnt moving at all..... how do i fix it?


Unplug and Take the case apart. You will probably see that the gear moving the blade collet is stripped. Or, the gear fell out of place. Try putting it back together and see if it works.

Clippers have suddenly stopped cutting and seem to pull at the hair


Generally removing the two screws.. on the blade foot (don't do this over the sink unless the drain is closed!).. and taking the blade apart.. cleaning the trimmers with a small brush.. apply grease in the blade groove.. reassemble

Usually it's best to put those two screws back just get them in lose.. not quite snug..set the blade upside down on a flat surface..so it pushes the blade back away from the cutting end..level..then tighten those screws while you are pushing or holding down on the clippers cutting edge against the flat surface/table. ... oil the blade with the proper oil or a light mineral oil.

This usually will get them back to cutting properly..the blade should be oiled prior to each use...about two to three drops right along the visible part..or a light spray also hair should be clean.. dirty hair does not cut well at all..and the clippers will tug and pull rather than cut cleanly.

Lastly..if they see a lot of use. might be blade replacement time..

Best of luck!

I have a poulan ES300 electric chainsaw and have been having a problem with the saw blade getting lubricated. I put the lubricant in the resevoir but oil is not flowing on the blade. How do I repair this...


Take the bar off.Then run the saw to see if oil is coming out.If it is make sure the oil hole in the bar is not plugged up.This happens after some use.To clean the bar you can use a small flat blade screw drive.Just scrape down the grove.You will see a small hole at the end where it bolts on.If you have an air hose just blow it out.It has to be open for the oil to get to the bar.

My saw is two weeks old it uses 3 tanks of bar&chain oil to 1 tank of gas is there a adjustment for setting?


Take the bar and chain off and clean both thourghly. Use a small blade screwdriver to scrape built up saw dust,dirt woodchips or whatever from bar track and make sure both are in good shape. The oil port should be located by bar alignment pin.Brush it clean and if you have access to compressed air then blow out to help clear port. Turn your saw upside down and locate screw that has directional arrow to + or - to add or subtract amount of oil flow.
I would start and run saw with bar and chain installed and properly tensioned. Let saw warm up then hold saw about one inch above clean piece of wood and run at full throttle for 30 seconds.There should be a light coating of oil on board. If you have too much oil then turn screw in direction on - until you get it set where you want it. There should be a light coating of oil on chain and bar at all times.
I mostly use stihl saws and run about 1 1/2 tanks of gas per tank of oil and this works great for me. Hope this helps you. Thanks.

Looking for a manual for a Dewalt 788 scrol saw


I also have this saw and when I had a problem with it, I carefully just started to take it apart and found it to be a really simple item to work on. Don't be afraid to take it apart on your own, everything is very simple to take apart and to put back together. my saw would not respond at all when I turned it on after not using it for awhile and I got it working without having to put any money in it.I also was not able to get it to put tention on the blade and again no problem for me to fix at no cost...simple, easy machine.

My saw threw a blade . I took it apart to put the blade back on I have tried everythingbut the blade ,which is the proper one isI about 1-2 links too long. this is w/ the tensioner all the way out. Any...


I would say that it's time for a new chain. After using for varying periods of time the chain will stretch too far to be used anymore. This is caused by heating during usage. Some things that will cotribute to chain wear out are insufficient bar oil, dull chain or just every day wear. I think if you get anew chain you'll be fine. When I'm tensioning my chains I run the saw at high rpm for a couple of mins. Shut off and grasp chain by mid-point of bar and lift up. I try to get enough space to slip a nickle between bar and bottom of chain. You should check tension often, as over tightening also adds to wear on chain and motor. Hope this helps you. Thanks

Bolt comes loose and rip cord is yanked from hand


  1. block off the blade and driver assembly with a 2x4 to keep it from moving
  2. remove the flywheel nut (regular hand force should be sufficient)
  3. tap the 3 holes on the flywheel (if they aren't already threaded) using 1/4inch 20national tap set
  4. remove the flywheel using a flywheel puller -- a harmonic balancer puller which matches the tecumseh bolt pattern on the flywheel also works using 3 1/4inch thread (20national, 2inch long) bolts with washers
  5. NOTE: (if the blade was removed/reinstalled, tighten the blade to manufacturer's spec of 60lbs) before installing the new flywheel key
  6. remove the sheared flywheel key
  7. clean up the flywheel (wipe off all the dirt and grease)
  8. install the new flywheel key (part 611004 for toro 20016)
  9. install the flywheel (pull the bail brake handle to get the ball-brake inside the flywheel)
  10. tighten the flywheel nut to manufacturer's spec of 37.5lbs
  11. prime the gas bulb, give it a pull and mow away

After reassembly blade will not cut wood, does not maintain suffient tension despite being correctly inserted


It sounds like the blade is not going through the guides properly if the blade is being pushed away from the wood.

Your blade is facing and moving the right direction, I am assuming.
