Yes ma'am.
If you saw actually does go into reverse, you have a short in the windings of the motor.
It would be a really good idea to unplug it and plan to scrap it.
You have not said whether it is made in China or not.
If it was made in the USA, you might look at the manufacturer's sticker and try to contact that company over the internet on your computer.
If it was made overseas, likely you cannot get it fixed here.
It is very, very dangerous if it is doing as you say, because it can kick the material you are attempting to cut back at you and injure you severely.
God bless your efforts.

De Walt radial arm saw old model 7740. Am trying to restore it to working condition Very difficult to change the height adjustment due to binding when trying to turn the handle on the top.


The manual for the saw is included below, To free the height it may be best to remove the saw carriage from the arm to reduce the weight.

Use WD40 or equivalent to cut the rust and a suitable grease to maintain the freedom. There is a worm screw that is below the cylinder that may need lubricating. The manual shows the assembly. I routinely apply 90 weight gear oil around the large tube where it goes into the housing,

Wuich way should the teeth be facing on radial arm saw with or against rotation?


As you face the saw, the edge of the blade closest to you is going down. The teeth should be pointing down also. On any circular saw (table saw, miter saw, etc.) the teeth of the saw should point in the direction of rotation. It might seem odd because as you draw the radial arm saw toward you, the saw wants to "climb" and pull itself along through the material. Some saws are equipped with a damping device to prevent the saw from lurching forward, most are not. You need to pull the saw toward yourself slowly and steadily to keep it from climbing. good luck

I have a Dewalt model 7730 radial arm saw. When the on button is pushed the motor starts off real slow as if it is under a bind or load but after a few seconds it picks up speed and seems to turn at full...


most probably it is bit of timber on the bottom of the saw assembly...

1. switch off the saw
2. remove power plug
3. remove screw and clear protector assembly
4. remove centre panel (as to changing the blade)
5. remove blade and clean dust furrow below it from all debris
6. re-assemble in reverse order
7. mount safety protector assembly
7, connect power cord
8. start in shor burst and switch immediatelly off, after blade stop spinning, check blade assembly if not wobbly.

this should solve your problem.

if you find this advice useful, please do not hesitate to leave comment and give me your vote4 fo rme, thanx!

I have a Delta Rockwell Radial Arm saw model L-40C (equivalent to model 33-527) that is running backwards. How do I reverse the motor rotation?


Sorry I don't know the saw in question, but I would assume either the starter winding connections or the run winding connections have been reversed. Was the motor replaced or was the starting capacitor serviced recently?

Thanks!

Radial saw motor just buzzes.


It sounds like the start circuit is shot on the motor of the radial saw. It is trying to start, (the buzzing sound), but the start is not is burnt out, and therefore the run winding is drawing excessive amperage trying to start the motor (a job it is not designed to do) and eventually builds a amp draw in excess of the circuit. You will have to determine which is cheaper a new motor, or a new saw.

Hope this helps
