I can't raise my table saw blade when I crank the handle


My DeWalt Table saw does this,and for me its cleaning with a air compressor and nozzle. I cand seem to prevent it though. I tried grease on time and it just plugged up faster. I want to try a gravite lube next. To me it seems to be a desiegn flaw and I just clean the spline thead shaft that lowers and raises the blade. So far I just settled into a maintance air spray and it seems to work well enough.

Ryobi mitre saw jamming when cutting


There's a normal adjustment process of squaring the blade to the table, page 19 of your manual. If the blade is not square to the table then it will bind. Here's the link for the manual, see page 19.

Bt3100 blade height


My guess is you are talking about a table saw. If this has a plastic handle, the D shaped hole in the handle has probably become stripped. An easy fix it to put a hose clamp (the kind that you tighten with a screwdriver) around the hub of the handwheel. You might also have to put a shim (perhaps a small screw) into the flat space in the hub to help make the fit a little tighter. I did this fix on my own saw many years ago, and the fix has lasted much longer than the original handle.

I believe my table saw blade is not accurately aligned with the table and I can't find my Owner's Manual.


OK, first you should understand that the blade needs to be aligned with the miter slot. The easiest way to check this is to use a ruler.

UNPLUG YOUR SAW BEFORE BEGINNING!

First, use a pencil or a marker to mark the outside of one of the teeth on your blade, on the same side of the blade as the miter slot you're going to measure from. Position the marked tooth at the front of the table, then measure from the side of the marked tooth to the leading edge of the miter slot. To determine if it is aligned correctly, you simply spin the blade around where the marked tooth is at the back of the table and measure it again to the leading edge of the miter slot. The measurements should match. If you want to be more accurate you can use a machinists dial gauge to measure within 1/1000 of an inch.

If the measurements are off, you need to loosen the trunion bolts that mount to arbor to the table just slightly, then use a dead blow to move the table in the appropriate direction.

Search youtube for "table saw allignment" to find lots of videos showing this technique.

Also, here is a copy of your owners manual:

I have a Craftsman 10" table saw model number: 137.248830. The saw doesn't make square cuts, it is more of a problem when using the miter. I have followed the alignment procedure so that the right...


I assume that your alignment procedure is about adjusting your miter gage. But you should first verify if the blade is parallel to the miter slot (the slot the miter gage slides in). This is adjustable underneath the saw, and sometimes comes crooked from the factory or comes loose later on. To check if the blade is parallel to the miter slot you can do this.....1. unplug the saw. 2. Raise the blade as far as it will go. 3. Clamp a piece of wood to your miter gage so that it just touches the blade as close to the front of the saw as possible. 4. Use a marker and mark that spot on the blade. 5. Now slide the miter toward the back of the saw, and rotate the blade by hand so that your piece of wood hits the same spot as where you checked in the front. You can see a large misalignment by eye. But you can get a little precise by using a piece of paper between the wood and the blade as a feeler gage. Or better yet, use a drop indicator instead of the piece of wood and you can measure the difference. If this isn't as close to parallel as you are able to measure it, you need to turn the saw over and find the bolts that attach the whole assembly under there to the table top. Once you have this in alignment, you should be able to set your miter to be square against any good square. If you don't have a high quality square, you can go to a tool store (Sears or whoever) with your miter gage in hand, and set it to be square against their most expensive square. If the square is square, and the blade is parallel to the slot and it still won't cut square you either have a bad blade or there is too much play in the saw's arbor. Try to wiggle the blade side-to-side - any wiggle at all is too much.

The saw blade is 1/16" out of parallel with the miter groove in the table. How do I adjust the blade/motor? Thanks


To be that far out of alignment, there must be something loose. Unplug it, turn it over and look for what it is. If you have a drop-indicator gage, and you can clamp it to your sliding miter gage, it will help you get the alignment dead-on. Slide the miter gage toward the front and back in the slot with the tip of the indicator in contact with the blade. Have the the blade at fully elevated postion. If you don't have such a gage, you can clamp a piece of wood to the miter gage to get pretty close. You will probably have to do this with the saw laying on it's backside so that the top and the bottom are accessible at the same time.

Ryobi bt 3000 table saw belt installation diagram


The BT3000 actually has TWO v-belts! Here's a link at the end of this solution to an exploded diagram. Basically you have a major disassembly, but it really isnt that complicated.

More great info on the BT3000 is available from the web site http://bt3000.com/

I have a BT3100 saw, and it is a good tool, but does require attention in maintenance procedures, but Ryobi did outline the necessary steps in their manuals. The above website also has the owner manual if you need one.

  1. Unplug saw
  2. Remove the blade
  3. Lower mechanism all the way to the bottom
  4. Flip over saw and lay on it's top
  5. Remove the blade guard panel opposite the motor
  6. Unbolt the motor assembly and remove the belt cover
  7. Replace the broken belts
  8. Re-assemble (be careful not to cross-thread the bolts in the aluminum housings!)
