SOURCE: My 16" Delta band saw blade is drifting how can I fix it?

The blade guides are not intended to prevent your blade from drifting they are there to ensure proper blade path while cutting forces are being applied. There is a tracking adjustment for the upper wheel. Unplug the saw. Start with light blade tension. Turn the upper wheel by hand while adjusting the tracking knob. When the tracking is close set proper blade tension and check tracking again. You can make fine adjustments to tracking with the machine running.

My Ryobi 10" mitre saw stops cutting when there is approximately 1/16" inch left of board to cut. What should I do to try and fix it? This is first season I have used it.


Sometimes there are stops to be adjusted and sometimes things need to be eased with a file.
One of my mitre saws had the same problem which I cured by fitting a different blade that was just a couple of mm bigger diameter - possibly the difference between a metric blade and an imperial...

A piece of a broken blade is stuck here the blade fits into the saw (Dewalt DW 303m). How do I get it out?


Craig, a drop of penetrate oil and you will just have to work at it with ice pick.small screwdriver, or needle nose pliers if you can, make sure you have blade release depressed while trying to pry blade shank out. Once you get it moving it will fall out. Clean and blow out blade port before inserting another blade.

Please can you tell me how to fit a new blade. Is there an information leaflet any where to be found.


well you didn't mention a model or even mfg. so all I can give you is a general method of changing a blade on a std bandsaw

1st: locate the table cutouts , there are sometimes two of these , slide them out to leave a gap in table
2nd open top and bottom blade cover , swing back (this is a good time to clean this out)
3rd locate the blade tension knob this is always on the opposite side you stand on to use saw(reason is next)
4th slowly back off tension of saw blade , till blade falls off top or bottom wheel Or both
5th carefully feed the old blade out of saw guides top and bottom till blade comes out free, careful even old blades can still cut you
6th remove new blade from package (caution !!! spring steel) do not k-##-k the blade get it till teeth of blade are all on one side, might take a bit of fenniest to do so
7th slide new blade into saw guides(teeth out towards operator position) , top and bottom , I use a bit of sticky tape to hold mine there (it's 179 inches long) position the new blade to top and bottom pulleys (again sticky tape helps a lot)
8th slowly tighten the tension pulley (top) till the blade stays there all by itself No tape , remove all tape now , hard to do later
9th slowly turn the pulleys over by hand as you tension the blade , this produces a even tension and your less likely to break the new blade , continue till blade rides in center of both pulleys or it's pretty tight , I flick it with my fingernail if it rings (like a guitar) then its tight enough (I know the sound well)
10th ck all your saw guides for proper clearance , I use a piece of note paper , u should just be able to get it in along the side , but blade cant be aloud to twist at all , there are usually three guides on both top and bottom
11th close all covers up replace table cutout and run saw if it walks the blade off then ck your pulley alignments and the tires on rim of them ,tires do go bad every 500 hours or so keep a set on hand 4 fast swap out

How do I keep the on switch of my Bosch PKS54 circular saw 'ON' without physically holding the on switch down?


Rewire the saw with a table mounted switch. This will probably void the warranty.

How to put the chain back on a 16" Poulan electric chain saw


its probably like the gas model. so you remove the 2 nuts holding on the side cover of the blade side, remove the cover and the blade and chain. To fit back, slacken the adjuster screw a little bit, or if fitting a new chain then a fair amount, as you have to be careful that the pin on the adjuster fits into the proper hole on the saw bar, as you fit back on the bar, of which you have already cleaned out the grooves. supporting the bar in the slackest position, fit on the chain, making sure that the cutting edge at the bottom is coming towards the motor. Then slide the bar and chain away from the motor to take up the slack, then fit back the metal guide in the original position, fit cover with the adjuster pin in its hole on the bar, and replace the 2 nuts almost tight but slack enough to use the adjuster to set the chain to cutting position..slightly sagging on the sprocket nose type, or snug on the solid nose type..then tighten the cover 2 nuts firmly but not excessively as that will damage the machine..NB the bar & chain depends on the adjuster, not on the nuts tightness to maintain tension

Ryobi bs904 motor hums but blade wont spin


Make sure that the blade guides are not too tight. Place the guides properly. Do a thorough clean up on the interior of the saw to avoid dust build up.

Blade falls out.


the lever for the lock has a indentation in it to lock the blade in place (at 90 or 180 degrees try both) make sure it drops into same in blade. not all brand blades will fit even with the word universal! good luck
