We have one of these, it's great.

See these links:

I would try removing the battery and charging it with a proper low-amperage charger (1 amp). Your battery will either be 6 volt or 12 volt, just be sure the charger matches.

Also check the ground rod and all wiring connections.

My chain link fence is rusted in a few different areas. Should I replace the entire fence, or is there a way to fix it?

Hi Jessica:
Surface rust should have no effect on the structural integrity of the fence, and a totally acceptable cosmetic fix should be able to be obtained using galvanize paint.
Notice I said COSMETIC fix. If the fence is no longer structurally sound, it may be time for some major repairs or replacement.

Troubleshooting back-up malfunction after replacing battery. Checked main power supply breaker and battery power supply fuses for continuity. What should I try next?

Depending on the type of unit, you do not state any model. It may require 6-8 hours of being plugged in and turned off before the battery has enough charge that the ups will turn on.

Hi, I have a 25 mile range Parmak solar pak 6 fence charger. When I test the lines it reads .02 and I noticed that the energizer unit itself is energized. I tested the unit and it reads between 3.8 to 4.6....

Any point you measure has to be compared to a reference. This can not be accomplished by just touching one must be compared to something. Do I make sense the way I explain this?
Hope this helps! Good luck

Parmak 6 is showing the volt red line is pass the green charge line and it doesn't have a good charge, it's very weak and everything is clear - nothing touching the wire.

I would first start with the battewry, 2 year run on battery is pretty good. You can go online and find replacement batteries or go to place of purchase and check with them.

My monarch ESC16 had both red lights on today. salt

If you are sure it was cleaned correctly, it most likely will be a failed cell. Warranty thru this company has become very difficult in the past few years as the company had a falling out with its US counterpart. Good Luck.

I have just purchased a Delta Rockwell Industrial Table Saw. It is a 1.5 HP, 3 BELT, 3 PHASE UNIT. How should I clean and lubricate the parts. I also bought 22OV 5 HP motor to put in it because I only have...

The table can be cleaned and waxed with a good quality paste wax like Trewax clear. If it has rust, you can use automative polish/cleaner and a rag or fine scotch pads to get the rust out, then wax the surface to protect it. Period waxing will maintain a low friction surface through use. Old timers used to recommend rubbing the bare steel table with talc to seal the pores, but I find was is more readily available and gives a better surface for use...Wax is also good on the moving parts of the fence.
The worm gears and trunnions can be cleaned with compressed air and regular 30w motor oil in a pump can. Maybe a soft wire brush or toothbrush if needed to remove built up resin and pitch. If there's a really heavy build up on the gears, get some OxiSolve bit and blade cleaner from Woodworker's supply and it will safely dissolve the gunk to a consistency you can scrub off with a toothbrush. I maintain these moving mechanical parts with oil, which an old pro recommended years ago, and have found it doesn't contribute to sawdust build up as you think it might, not nearly so much as an assembly lube or white grease, and makes raising and lower the blade a joy. If you're concerned about dryness, you can try triflow or some kind of bicycle chain lube, but I've decided the expense isn't worth the results, and oil is readily available when I need it...
If replacement parts are available for your model, try here. Otherwise, and for older machines, you might find a manual or parts info at this site.
After market fences are available for your saw, and depend on user preference. I've been very happy with my Biesemeyer fence, after using it (and many others) for 22 years. It is also heavy duty.
