Just a point, counter-clockwise should lower the blade.
Look under the saw while turning the handwheel, if the threaded rod is turning you have an issue with where it threads into the motor block. If the threaded rod is not turning you have either a broken handwheel or the pin on the threaded rod is broke or fell out.

Need to know how to change the agle on the blade for a protech 10 in table saw


Hi Ron,

You didn't give your model.

Protech is out of business so I could not find a user's guide for you.

The knob on the front that you use to raise and lower the blade also adjusts the angle. Depending on your saw, normally the knob releases from raise/lower mode to angle adjustment by either pulling the knob out and moving it or by pushing a lever to release it and then moving the knob.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Thanks,

Handie Andie

I can no longer raise or lower the blade on my 10" sears table saw' model # 113.298032.


After some use the threads on the raising mechanism can become clogged with sawdust and resin.
UNPLUG the saw and look underneath up inside the box. there is a rod that runs from the wheel you turn to raise and lower the blade into the actual mechanism. Brush it clean and give it a good douse of WD40 to help clean it. That rod must turn freely so look for any obstructions that will prevent that from happening

I cannot easily raise/lower my blade on my Craftsman 10 inch table. I've cleaned out the say thouroughly and nothing appears to be obstructing mechanism to raise/lower the blade, but yet, it takes two...


mine did the same and i sprayed WD-40 on the assemblys or large screws and keep working it until free. but, check things over because some had a lock so the blade wont move after the hieght is set.

My 10 inch saw is 20 years old. It is very hard to raise and lower the blade. Everything is clean yet it is very hard. Any ideas?


over the years the yoke nut the screw goes through has built up grit . Spray the screw with WD 40 as you raise and lower the blade , also look to see as you turn if screw is bent.

Raising and lowering the blade is really tight.


what I do is turn it over and using compressed air blow out as much of the dust as you can and then find a dry silicone type lubricant to thoroughly spray the threads and the slide portion of the saw. let dry and then move blade up and down a few times, you might have to repeat this but it works.

i would say the table is twisted then, strip it down first and if you need to "bend!" it back so it works

Handle to raise and lower blade is stuck in the down position


What I do is use some penetrating oil on the mechanism that raises and lowers the saw unit. Usually you will have to raise if a little and then lower and keep doing over until it moves freely. If the unit is rusted you might have to wire brush a little. I dont know what brand or model we are talking about but this works on the DeWalt and Bosch saws that I repair.
