Question about Saws

1 Answer

Have a small 10" delta shopmaster table saw on stand. When I am cutting hard wood it will cut off. It will restart with the reset button, however when I resume cutting it will cut off under pressure from cutting the hard wood. Any solutions?

Make sure you're using a sharp blade, and try not to feed to fast for the motor to keep up. Make sure the belts are adjusted properly, ie not slipping.
Try not to use too long or light guage an extension cord to plug into, and make sure the power source where you are plugged in has enough amperage to run your motor without starving it for power.
Otherwise, it could just be a limitation of the motor and the hp of that saw. You'll have to be patient and feed slowly, or upgrade to a heavier duty saw.
What you're describing is undoubtedly the bane of many a weekend woodworker, but the alternative doesn't always come cheap.
Best of luck!

Why does the saw cut at an angle?

The table is not perpendicular to the blade travel. Use a small level to make sure the machine is vertical , then set the table. Make sure the blade control guide is working.

Looking for owners manuals for 2 saws

Your Delta radial arm saw (RS830) manual is here. Exploded diagram for parts, etc is here.

I'm not sure on the Rockwell, but here's a link to a manual for a Rockwell-Delta 10" Tilting Arbor Unisaw, circa 1969 which seems about right for a 34-466.

If that's not quite right, there a couple other manuals for old Rockwell saws here.

Blade does not make straight cut and turns.

it may be the blade is worn out and has lost its edge on one side or it could be its too lose, on the other hand if your pushing the wood through to fast not letting the blade cut it first it wont cut straight

Problems with my band saw bs100

Look for any gouges in the metal surface that have metal projecting above the milled surface. Also, file or grind away any sharp edges along the miter gauge track. If the cut surface is very irregular, the blade may have overly coarse teeth, or the blade guide rollers may not be holding the blade firmly allowing the blade to wander while cutting. Hope this helps.

Delta shopmaster saw blade stuck down and won't go back up

sounds silly, but on the right side there is a blue knob.Push down on the saw handle and pull out the blue knob. That should release the saw arm.
