How to disassemble gear housing of skil 3410 table saw

I don't know. Mostly such things are intuitive when somebody who is used to taking things apart just looks at them and handles them. Sometimes an ally housing needs a little heat to expand it in order to help ease things apart or remove a shaft complete with a bearing. Armatures are delicate and expensive but often some force is needed to remove them.

If you do an internet search for spare parts you will probably find an exploded diagram of your saw which might help.

I hava a 7 1/4 circular saw model # 5250. The blade broke off and we can't get the bolt loosened enough to replace the blade. Any ideas on how to get bolt off?

If you have no way to prevent the motor from turning when you try to remove the blade bolt, you are going to have to immobilize the armature to get it off. Remove the cap on the motor housing so you can remove or relieve the spring pressure on the brushes. Then remove the motor housing with the field, leaving the armature attached to the blade guard/transmission assembly. Now you can safely hold the armature while turning the blade bolt.

I broke the lower blade guide - a die cast piece that holds the blade guide bearings. It appears that Skil does not carry replacement parts

All I could find out is that your skil bandsaw is made by the Bosch Bench tool co in Mount Prospect, Il. The owners manual from skil shows the part you need as #6 lower blade guide, and Lowes does handle this line of Skil. I would suggest contacying Lowes or the store you bought this from and getting the consumer help phone number from them. They have to have this part available as I am seeing a lot of these units refurbished, so someone has the parts to them. Hope this helps and good luck. Marvin

My minn kota riptide 55 stopped working when i turn the handle. i believe its a connection issue. i dismantled the housing around the handle and a little metal washer fell out broke in half and the pieces...

To start with, here's a schematic:
RT55 Hand Control
Sounds like key# 87 broke....seen it before.
To replace it, remove top cover, then remove the handle portion by removing the 5 screws underneath. There are a few peices in there, so keep close watch. Also be careful of the fine ribbon wire attaching the handle to the control's pretty fragile.
Best of luck!

The front clutch housing on my Skil 2887 Xdrive 18Volt drill is loose and the chuck wobbles as a result. I can't find an exploded view to see what I'm in for if I decide to open it up. Is the fix difficult...

If your drill is less than one year old it is under warranty. If not, get a firm estimate from any skil repair center. To locate one near you go to

There are three visble screws and one hidden. Use the right size torx driver if you have it, or a small allen wrench works too and undo the screw that is visble on one side of the pack. Snap the false bottom off of the pack and reveal two more screws to remove. One screw is behid a plastic cap over a fourth obvious screw location. Drill the cap and unscre this screw also. Be sure there are no lables holding the two side together. Pressing down on the battery holdin clasp makes the sides easier to separate. Watch for falling parts. That's it!
