Question about Powermatic 1792000K Model PM2000 3HP 1ph Cabinet Saw 50" Fence
I don't know a lot about it. A friend of mine wants me to look at his saw and help him figure out why the blade cranks so hard. The tilt works fine but the up and down cranks hard. I have not looked at it yet but was hoping you could tell me some things to look for. Is this a common problem. I'm quite sure it isn't dirty because he takes good care of things. It's probably mechanical. Thanks,
Yes, it's common and it's usually because it's dirty (mostly sawdust). It's kinda hard to damage those components, so I'd expect to have to give it a good cleaning and an even better lubrication -- start with WD-40 after cleaning, then a heavier oil like 3-in-1 machine oil. Give attention to all moving parts in this mechanism.
