    Thanks ! I didnt think to level saw table up / I hate to think its arbor.....its too new for that already , the wheels seem to roll good however there are two nylon rollers in the front and one is alittle high , but again it could be because the pan is not level. Now that may solve the chipping I dont know why the blade is wobbleing alittle ?

Did yo happen to put the round hoding plate back on before you bolted the blade on, this is what keeps the blade from wobbleling, if you have since you haven;t used it to much has anything hit against the shaft that might have broke the bearings? and made the shaft wobble,.but is sounds like the round washer that goes on the blade before the lovk nut is installed isn't there

Another option: get the Harbor freight wet saw and a blade, then polish it up for Ebay or Craig's List after you are finished. You'll probably recoup a good chunk of the purchase price (and you won't trash your cut-off saw).

You may wanna check the Conveyor Cart Wheel. Replacing this wheel maintains smooth rolling action which contributes to straight, chip-free cuts.

It costs for only about $28.72. Here, you may check this link if you wish to buy the Conveyor Cart Wheels:

Unfortunately, I couldn't find any service center where you can bring your Target Tile saw for repair. But you may check the manufacturer's contact number on the user's manual.

Have a great day!

My blade appears to cut or move straight. But when I cut a piece of wood on it it wobbles. You can't wobble the blade with your hand. It appears to be in there tight. What could be the problem?

I have two 101's and both saws have a terrible wobbling. I have put new blades on both and no corrrection. I put the same blades on a 10" target and they boith cut perfectly....i am at a loss


well you might check the belt tension,you can tighten it by loosining the 4 nuts that hold motor then tighten the middle bolt in the back,that slides your motor forward,then retighten the 4 motor nuts.if saw sounds louder than normal, it probably needs new bearings

I have an old Sears Craftsman 7" Electric Handsaw model #315.27782. The blade I use for fine sawing has begun to wobble. I've taken it off, put it back on and tightened it several times. Same wobble. ...


It could be that the bearings that support the shaft that holds the blade are worn, allowing the shaft to move slightly and make the blade wobble. As the machine is an older model, I would try replacing the bearings.

Will not cut straight anymore, blade wobbles blade is not old


There are a couple reasons why the blade is wobbling. Either the diamonds are glazed over because the material you are cutting is way to hard or the blade is very thin and when metal gets hot it expands and when you make a longer rip cut it will tend to wobble. I sell blades for a living and i can almost gurantee this is the reason

HI, I have a Black & Decker 12 amp ''Spitfire'' corded 7 1/4 circular saw. The problem is that the blade wobbles left to right. I can even wobble the blade with my own hands when its not operating,...


There's a cap that slips onto the spindle before you put the anchoring nut on. Make sure it's there but the thing that makes blades wobble alot of times is the other one that's on the backside of the blade. They fall out, unnoticed, and since some folks don't know about the one on the inside of the blade they never realize it's not there. Just a thought.

How do I change the saw blade?


i have been doing tile over 20 years, I've never seen a blade that wont come off , on a great saw like target,or any other professional saw. that saw has a 10 in blade,inspect by lifting the blade gaurd so you can see the nut holding blade on, take a cresent wrench put it on the nut hold the blade with ur left hand and hit the wrench with a rubber mallet. It will come rite off,the nut does not have to be super tight,because it could warp the blade when cutting tile and it puts pressure on the bearing,inspect the motor by turning it on without water pumping it should be pretty quiet,it has a baldor 1 1/2 hp motor awsome motor.good luck

Crooked cuts


The bearings in your saw need to be replaced. I would contact a DeWalt store to obtain the parts or have them do the repair. You have an excellent saw there, well worth repairing. good luck.
