Question about Saws

Open Question

Saw height drops as saw is running.

I noticed resistance while elevating the blade. Then while elevating the blade I heard a metallic pop from inside the mechanism. Now after I set the height the blade slowly drops once the saw is turned on. I looked inside expecting to find a broken part, but it all looks good. Any ideas? Thanks.

SOURCE: bosh 4000 table saw , using dado blades.

no good solution for that problem. dado blades vibrate and cause the knob to turn. possibly a clamp on the knob to keep it in place.

SOURCE: 12 inch miter saw blade turns slowly and doesn't

There's no debris or wood jammed in the housing around the blade, is there? Try unplugging and removing the blade, to make sure some wood hasn't gotten wedged in there somewhere.
Otherwise, make sure the blade is on tight. If so, there is likely a problem with the motor itself.
If it's still under warranty, I'd contact Ridgid at this link: http://www.ridgid.com/Tools/Support/
Otherwise, they have a tools forum where you might be more likely to find someone who's experienced a similar problem.
Being reconditioned, it sounds suspect to me...
Sorry I couldn't be any more helpful...

SOURCE: I have a skill table saw model 3400 type 2. The

I would check to see that ID of the blade arbor matches the OD of the motor arbor, and you are not missing an adapter ring. Then I would get some acetone and a wire brush clean all surfaces where the blade seats. This is also good practice for Jacobs chucks on drills, that allow the drill bits to spin.

Problems with 10in table saw, raising blade height. Very hard turning. Already clean unit and white grease


Need to know the brand and model in order to help you.
Many have elevating rods that the saw carriage moves up and down on - they get bent and the carriage won't move up and down.
Please post the brand and model and I will do my best to help

Bevel gears are worn


Most common repair for this saw
1) remove blade & blade housing guard plate
2) You will find 2 allen head screws holding the elevating screw bracket
This will allow you to move the gears apart to replace
Remove the small retaining ring and slide the gear off (be careful not to lose the woodruff key when you slide the gear off)
Typically we find that the 2 rods (elevating shafts) are bent and this causes the resistance that strips the gears out - I always replace the 2 rods and the elevating screw when replacing the gears - you already have it apart and the parts are inexpensive.

Change blade Makita LS1030 10-Inch Compound Miter saw


There is an 8mm bolt on the front of the guard. Loosen/remove this and the central guard mount will drop slightly. Behind the metal guard is a slide lock for the blade spindle. Push the lock bar and turn the blade untill it catches and is held solid. Then remove the blade fixing bolt and bobs your uncle. Alternativly, with all mitre saws, you can just pop an old bit of wood on the work base and then use the spannrer/allen key supplied to turn the blade so it bites into the wood as if you are trying to cut it. This will hold the blade steady and you will also be turning the bolt in the right direction.

I am going through my husbands tools. We have a Ryobi Saw-all and I notice it has different blades. I can not find the manual. I simply want to change the blade for cutting iron that is currently inserted...


To change blades, a hex-wrench is required and you simply tighten or loosen the allen screw that holds the blade, but unfortunately the saw's design is a bit flawed. It takes a bit of "feeling around" to locate the proper position for the blade changing wrench because the fitting is not visible through the rubberized boot. You can certainly trim and prune trees with the saw, but make sure that the branch is at least 10% thinner than the length of the blade. I do not know your Manzanita tree, but if the wood is wet it should present no problem. Any power saw is extremely dangerous if used at an elevated height like on a ladder. If the ladder slips, there seems to be an almost unnatural tendency to grab for the saw and very often the moving blade. Take the utmost care at all times with power tools. (I have a friend who point blank refuses to use a chain saw unless both his feet are firmly planted on the ground, and he is over 6 foot).

Will this saw be able to cut steel on truck and trailer frames? the steel may be 2-3 inches thick in some places. other places only about a half inch thick. is this a good tool for cutting heavy metal?


Never heard of cutting steel with a chain saw. What works best for me has been a sawzall with a good quality steel cutting blade. The real thin metal cutting blade on a circular saw works pretty good also.

Have a Craftsman 10" Model 113.241691 table saw


I have the same table saw. Mine has done that for the past 25 years and I've always considered that it's just the flexible shaft coming up to speed. It's never given me any problems so haven't looked into any further.

There should be a locking knob on the front of the crank or a locking collar behind the crank depending on which model or age of the saw that you need to tighten down to lock the arbor height.

Skilsaw motor runs blade won't turn


It sounds like you bought a lemon possibly. I am thinking that the gears are bad. What you can do is remove the blade and unplug the saw. locate where the screws holding the bearing cover are and remove them to get to the gear and check it. Let me know if you need more help

Dewalt 708 sliding compound mitre saw


Probably a worn bearing. The only other thing that I have seen cause this is a bent spindle. This would usually occour if the machine has had an impact or if the blade has been suddenly jammed against a nail or something in the work that has caused it to jam and/or jump up.
A good indicator for bearing wear is to see how much play is in the blade in an up/down and side to side movement (unplug saw, safety first).
To check spindle, remove blade and run machine without the flanges etc on. Rest a scredriver gently on the shaft as it spins and see if you notice any (uniform) vibration.
