The shaft is keyed to the hand wheel and even with extreme force applied to the hand wheel the shaft will not turn. I have used compressed air and a vacuum to remove excess sawdust from the trunion and rack and pinion assembly but to no avail. Are there other other possible causes to the shaft/ gear assembly being frozen? ( lock screw etc... )

First guess would be a lock bolt is tightened down. Second guess would be a 90 degree latch or stop. Take a look at this link from "mikestools": http://www.mikestools.com/download/Jet-Owners-manuals/Jet%20Tablesaws/708661.pdf.

Jet's Manual site is here. There are a number of manuals for Jet table saws there. I believe the exact manual you want is here though.

SOURCE: I was ripping some 2x4s

How freely does the motor turn without the blade on it??? Also what does that blade look like, are the teeth worn or broken? As for the motor usually there are vent holes in it and I would just try and use compressed air to clean as best asa possible. If the motor does not spin freely it could be dirt or possibly bearings. Let me know

I have a 1/16" tilt


Your question is not very clear. Here are several answers.
By tilt you may be speaking of bevel adjustment 0 - 45 Some saws have hidden under the table or obvious positive bevel stops or screws in the table top for 90 and 45 degree. Adjust them.
You may have a bent or warped blade causing the "tilt."
Thin blades may be stiffened with blade stabilizing washers $14
With the saw unplugged remove the blade. Grab the threaded arbor shaft and pull it up and down. Next push the shaft straight in and out. If there is wiggle the bearings are worn and may need replacing.

How do you cut angles on this saw. It was given to me and I can figure out everything else but cutting angles. Thanks


When you are facing the front of the table saw. Right above the Dewalt logo, there is a hand wheel that if you crank clockwise - it will tilt your table saw blade to the angle shown where the hand wheel is.

I'm missing a ''tilt'' set screw on my Craftsman 10 inch table saw


I couldn't find that model Sears saw to confirm, but if yours is like mine (113.298720), then the handle on the right causes the saw trunion to swivel left and right. And there is a locking hex-head bolt on the front of the saw up close to the underside of the table. This bolt locks the trunion in place keeping it from swivelling.
Take a look at the following diagram http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/showSubComp.pd?imageUrl=http://c.searspartsdirect.com/lis_png/PLDM/P0908018-00004.png part 22 is the shaft that tilts the blade Part 30 is the bolt that locks it in place part 29 is the handle part 28 is the spring that holds the handle on the locking bolt

How to adjust my til tof my 10


When you are facing the saw as if you would be operating, there are two adjustment wheel on the front and right hand sides of the saw cabinet. The front wheel adjusts the blade height, the wheel on the right side of the cabinet adjusts tilt. Each of these wheels are equipped with a locking nut, a smaller wheel in the center. this must be loosened before any adjustments can be made and should be tightened before operation. If there is significant resistance while trying to adjust either of these it may be a result of misaligned gear or excessive buildup of dust and shavings on the gearing.

I have a Craftsman 10 inch band saw. The blade keeps coming off. I can't find my manual. How do I adjust the alignment on it?


the blade tension shaft in the rear top of the saw should also have a tracking adjustment knob that tilts the top wheel. Open the top guard and spin the top wheel by hand and adjust the tracking knob until the blade atays on. Better unplug the saw until you get this done, then you can power the saw back up and fine tune the tracking while running until it is perfect. hope this helps you.
