SOURCE: blade does not turn

Disconnect the electric from the saw. Remove the throat blade cover. Bring the blade all the way up. Look for wood  caught between the blade and anything else. Finding none,remove blade. Try motor w/o blade. If it runs now,w/o the blade then the motor is likely ok . Reinstall blade. Now if it stil stalls, Replace motor.

SOURCE: Saw has no power.

Does the motor continue to run, but the arm stops? It sounds like the set screw on the motor shaft is loose. See the exploded view at this link. It's called out as # 97 http://www.dewaltservicenet.com/Products/DocumentView.aspx?productid=5682&typeId=3475&documentId=333

After using anew chaini hit dirt. isharpenit withadifferntanglewillthat make a differencein cutting.


sure will , most saws have different angle cuts to teeth on blade this "angle" needs to be maintained as the "rake" teeth that are behind the cut teeth are set to provide a good way to wipe out cut debris (cut,rake,cut,etc.) this is how chain cuts thru wood , if one changes the cut angle on teeth the rake teeth might not do there job correct and saw bogs and "files" thru wood rather than chips thru wood ,takes longer ,more fuel, more effort , a look at saw cuttings tells the tale , more tiny file sawdust = dull chain --- large Chips and less dust = sharp chain

Is it better to do pull cuts or push cuts with a hand saw?


it is a matter of debate, and ultimately up to your personal preference. i keep a steady pressure on the wood at all times, so the saw cuts during the push and the pull

New SKILSAW 5995 used once to cut 1/4 inch plywood, no problem. Several months pass and I went to cut a pine board, the blade touched the wood and stopped. I recharged the batteries and tried again, two...


Did you fully charge both batteries before using them the first time? If not then they may not be able to hold a charge. It sounds to me like the batteries are either dead or defective as obviously the saw now doesn't have the juice to cut the board. If it's still under warranty take it back and get a replacement. Also, how powerful are the batteries? Even an 18V saw will struggle sometimes cutting a 2x4, they just don't have that much power. The plywood is easier to cut obviously.

I bought a ls1016 coupond mitre saw this week. I was cutting cedar 2x6 's today and had a few kick backs. I am building my deck and do not feel safe using the saw after the kick backs. Why as this...


Sounds as if the blade is dull. Or perhaps bent. A dull or bent blade blade will 'grab' the wood, rather than cut it, resulting in binding, or kickbacks.

Solution; replace the blade with a fine-toothed, good quality blade. If the blade is new, then check that the blade is bolted tight on the arbor. If the blade is loose, it can result in kickbacks.

Also, check that all the bolts/fasteners/locking mechanisms on the saw are tight, and in good working order. Sometimes a tool new out-of-the-box will have loose screws/nuts/bolts that need to be tightened up.

Also, when cutting, use a smooth, slow, motion, being sure to give the saw the time it needs to make the cut.

My saw keeps cutting out when cutting heavy wood, does that mean my saw is wore out, or what can i do


When it cuts out while cutting heavy wood, there are several things you can do.

First, check to be sure you are not feeding the wood in too fast.
Next, be sure the saw blade is clean of pitch.
And, be sure the blade and fence are aligned.
Are the teeth of the saw showing completely over the wood? Just the tooth should stick up over your board.
Also, if this is a continuous problem despite cleaning and all the above, installing heavier belts sometimes helps.

I have a J3816 chain saw. I need a new chain. What do I look for? I understand it is a Homelite in JD clothing. loadmike@yahoo.com


I don't know what suppliers you have in your area but where I live tractor supply, orechlins,and true value all have good selections of chains and knowledgeable sales staff. Most have a selection booklet that lists proper chain selections fo bar length, manufactures, chain type [ low kickback, fast cut, etc.]
You will need model number, manufactures name, chain length, type of chain you want. I would use the low kickback chain in almost all types of wood. About the only type of wood that I would use a more aggressive chain on is soft high moisture content woods like cottonwood or certain elms and pines. I hope this helps you. Thanks

I am getting very bad kickback about 3/4 the way through my cuts. I have a new blade on the saw. I dont really know how to troubleshoot this.


Possible that the fence you are using is not on a true parallel line with the blade and as a result it is causing the wood to pull into the blade causing kickback. I would do an alignment procedure on the fence to make it as true to the blade as possible.

Most manufacturers do not cut a slot in the inserts for miter saws. Just use your saw as normal and cut the slot as you cut through a piece of wood. It is adviseable not to use a brand new blade. The plastic could gum up your blade and cause it to dull quicker.

Use a pencil and straight edge to mark the cutting line on the wood. Place the wood on the saw table and line the mark up with the saw. Place the mark on the right side of the blade to ensure proper cutting. Plug the saw in and put on your safety goggles. Support the wood on the work surface with your left hand, placing it far from the saw blade. Place your right hand on the handle, and push the trigger to start the saw. Move the saw blade down onto the wood. Put constant pressure on the handle to slowly move the blade through the wood. Release the trigger and raise the blade once the cut is complete. Make diagonal cuts in the same manner, by marking the wood and lining the mark up just to the right of the saw blade. Continue as you would for a straight cut. Remove the wood from the saw. Unplug the chop saw and dust the sawdust off. Remove the dust bag from the back and empty it. Vacuum any remaining dust off of the saw.
