Question about Skil 10" Table Saw 3400

1 Answer

Attaching Blade Gaurd

This is impossible, and in my opinion designed poorly. As I've tried doing it I've thought of about five ways to design it better. You do exactly what they tell you to do and it doesn't work. Has anybody had this issue? If so how did you overcome it?

    When i get every thing lined up and tighten he screws it moves out of alignment. That's what's so frustrating. I get the blade in perfect alignment, then I tighten the screws and it shifts out of the way

As long as you line it up properly, it should work. Just make sure the CENTER if the blade is lined ip with the center of the blade guard mount. Use folded paper to match the kerf on one side of the blade and use the fence as a guide. Tighten the screws underneath the back of the table, that hold the guard in place.

    Make sure you have the washers in the proper order. The lock washer will hold the bolts tight, the flat washers will allow the bolts tu turn, without shifting everything. Tighten them in steps. IE: finger tight, snug, firm & tight. If you try to crank them right in, it will tilt the block and move it.

I have 2 radios mp1000&990 the 1000 is working purfect but the receive on the 990 is very poor why is this what shall ido

I couldn't find mp990 or mp 990 radio anywhere on the web. If you're not going to do your own Google or DuckDuckGo search then you need to supply enough information so someone else can do the search to help you.

There are two basic reasons any radio has poor receiving
1. The receiver design is poor
2. Something has gone wrong.

If you have more than one mp990 and all are poor then the receiver design is poor. If only one is poor then the radio had been damaged.

If these are inexpensive FRS radios then chuck it and buy another. If it is an expensive radio try to find some place to have it repaired.

Just purchased a Stanley FatMax 10-778 retractable knife. Cannot figure out how to load the blade for use.

1. Make sure the side lock is unlocked.
2. Push the thumb tab all the way to the front of the blade handle.
3. Insert the blade in the opening, you may notice two notches on the top side of the blade.
4. Press the small blade release button as you slide the blade into the knife. You may have to jiggle up and down to get the two notches on the blade fully into the handle.

If properly inserted, the exposed area of the blade should look very close to an equilateral triangle.

make sure both notches of the blade are inside the handle. They notch into the thumb lever.

good luck

I think camera was possibly exposed to either a high temp. or humidity as it was left in an auto for extended period, before which time, (lightly-used) camera was functioning perfectly. If my suspicion is...

FixYa is an online resource only so cannot service your camera, sorry.

As to any opinion regarding repair costs, you haven't actually said what's wrong yet so it's impossible to say. But given that it is now about six years old it's already reached the end of it's minimum design lifespan, all but the simplest of repairs will not be economically viable.

Digital cameras just don't last as long as their 35mm film predecessors; yours may be on borrowed time anyway as it's fitted with the infamous Sony five megapixel sensor. Huge numbers of these failed prematurely due to a manufacturing error and were subject to a soft recall whereby affected owners who complained were offered a free repair. Most affected models have now passed their minimum design life, so there's no longer an issue of "premature" failure and all but a tiny handful of models are no longer being repaired for free.

Any kind of investment in your model will therefore be an especially risky strategy unless you know for a fact that your camera was rectified.

Mounting screws for manual air damper interferes with damper.

What type of damper are we talking about here? a manual or barometric.

Is the damper designed to move or stay stationary. If its designed to open and close and the screws are hindering this ability, then the screws must be removed and the damper attached to ductwork by another means. The best alternative is mastic (bucket) and mastic tape. Will form an airtight bond that will be nearly impossible to break provided its applied correctly and allowed sufficient time to dry.

The blade gaurd doesn't slide out of the way when handle is lower

You may have to change the link rod. That is the black arm that pulls the blade guard up. Over time they will bend just enough to not open the guard all the way.

Hope this help

Oil Leak from oil filter housing

Seems to be a common problem.
there are two "O" rings a small one inside, and a larger one in a shallow groove where the housing mates to the block.
Would be an easy fix, except for the fact that one nut is almost impossible to remove unless the engine mount is removed.
My 2002 Kia Sportage developed the same problem, which I originally thought was because the oil filter was not tight.
it is a poor design, as the original O ring should have been made so it stayed more flexible IMO.
