I have a Craftman DLT3000. The righthand blade is out of level. Deck is level and left blade cuts flat to the plane but right blade is canted.

You will need to find a way to level the spindle if the shafts isn't bent, remove belt and release spindle brake then spin blade and check for wobble. If you have shafts wobble replace spindle. If no wobble find a block of wood that fits snugly between good blade and concrete floor or drive. Check all blades for height from floor if center is the only one that has a different height then you will need to loosen spindle ,place some type of metal shim under low side , re-tighten and re-check. If other blades show difference on one side , you may have a bent blade or spindle or spindle mounting on them. The deck is sheet metal and can be bent when a foreign object is struck. There are also deck levelers on the supports. If the front of mower is up or down it will cause a high or low center blade path of cutting. All blades should be as close to the same height from a level surface as possible. This is time consuming but the only way other than new deck and/or spindles and blades.

I have 2 DW715 miter saws given to me, with the blades off one sounds wicked, you can spin it forward by hand but stops/locks up trying to spin in reverse. Sounds like a belt or bearing. The other one...

The first one sounds like an armature bearing - pretty easy fix if you have access to a press or even a bearing / gear puller. Make sure the saw is unplugged, remove the end cap on the motor and the 2 carbon brushes. remove the 4 screws holding the motor housing to the saw and pull it off. Then, pull the armature straight out - replace the bad bearing, and reverse process.
The second one sounds like it is missing the arbor bushing #152636-00 or it has a bad blade bolt #145344-01.

I just bought an old John Deere 68 riding mower but it does not cut grass even though the blade spins when engaged. I made sure the blade was on correctly but it still doesn't cut. I noticed the pulley...

Are you sure it is the correct blade and when it is turning the sharp edge is on the leading side? A spinning blade will cut grass even if the blade is dull. Did you lower the deck to the correct level?

Loss of power when blades engaded.

Remove deck belt from blade pulleys and Tri to spin blades by hand. If they don't spin freely, you probably need new spindle bearings but if you do need a new spindle I would replace the whole spindle housing... Just make sure the one (s) you buy has housing, spindle, bearings, nut and washer.

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.

Not cutting in straight line

Normally blade overheating. Improper blade or too few teeth for material, teeth not sharp and/or offset enough for proper width of cut. Teeth must cut wider than blade. Inexpensive blades tend to do this quickly. Other possibility: Bad bearing, check for play with saw unplugged. Blade should have little wobble. Other possibility: Saw body cracked/damaged(allowing shaft to skew) or very cheap saw unable to handle material

Wobble blade /rough cuts

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!
