Question about Saws
Just bought a RAS, model 133.198250. I removed the cover to the digital display and discovered that the wiring is broken for the miter encoder. How do I remove the miter encoder to replace it. I can't find a happy medium between adjusting the elevation so it moves easily without being able to move the arm. It's one or the other. I suspect something is worn out and needs to be replaced. A possibility related problem is that I can't square the blade to cross cut. The adjustment involves the same bolts as those used to adjust the elevation resistance. Is there such a thing as a field service manual that would allow me to take the saw apart?? It needs some TLC from top to bottom... Thanks.
You can find an owners manual here.
Hope this helps

I persevered and finally solved the jig saw puzzle of pieces. The base is now assembled and just waiting for the saw body to be remounted. Thanks everyone for looking at this post.

If the kickback arm you seek is the type that is a round bar with pointed fingers on the bottom, I had the same problem. (different model DeWalt) I gave up trying to find one, and finally just made one. It was pretty easy, and works very weill I bought a piece of steel rod (1/2 inch I think) a steel repair plate (from which I cut a pair of tear-drop shapes with a hacksaw and file) a 1/4 inch hex-head bolt (which had about 1 inch not threaded) and a 1/8 inch roll pin. I looked at various pictures on the web to determine the shape of the teardrops. I drilled a 1/4 hole in the 1/2 rod. I cut the threads off of the 1/4 bolt so it was still long enough to accept the 1/2 rod, the two teardrops, 2 washers and the 1/8 roll pin. Then I put an 1/8 hole in the bolt allowing enough clearance so that the teardrops would swing freely. It works like a champ. One minor flaw is that with only two of the teardrops (instead of several) and being separated by 1/2 inch, it would be possible to make a skinny enough rip that only one teardrop would contact the board being ripped, leaving the other peice unguarded.

A friend just inherited a model 113.197110 and we are in the process of trying to restore it. I can draw you the wiring connections if you haven't figured it out yet.

You should have 4 bolts holding the trunnion on to the table, just loosen these bolts up a little, tap the trunnion with a hammer, the right way, put a straightedge on the blade fully extended and measure across the table to a dado slot, front and rear, tap it till it is exact, tighten bolts and check again. This should do it. You can check your fence the same way. hope this helps.
