Hello. There are a few possible causes of this problem. first of all, check the rubber tires that the blade operates on. If it is coated with pitch or sawdust, clean it with a stiff brush or a piece of wood. Next check the rubber. If it is badly grooved, the tires will have to be replaced. Next check the tracking. This is often a challenge to set properly as any adjustment must be carefully done. You will need a 1/8th inch hex wrench to adjust the tracking adjustment screw located on the back of the saw behind the upper wheel. All of these steps are in the owner manua. IF you do not have the manual you can down load it for free at this link

How to lock the jigsaw blade to make straight cuts on my Boschest 1587svs?

Use a straight edge guide. Clamp it on the work so the jigsaw can run against it. Be patient and go very slowly.

Delta 28-160 band saw 3 wheel, blade keeps coming off

Sounds like your tracking screw needs adjustment, located right beside the knob used for tightening after adjusting the tension on the blade. Allen wrench required. Turning right pushes out and turning left pulls it in. A little is a lot when adjusting this screw. Always turn the blade in the same direction as the cut while adjusting.

Hi,my bandsaw will not cut a straight line with or without the fence. the blade just wants to go to the left (as i look at it). i've even tried freehand but the bandsaw just doesn't want to know. it cuts...

Dave, this could be caused by a couple of things.

One, the blade tension may be too low.

Two, and in conjunction with #1, the blade guide on the left side of the blade may need to be brought closer to the blade ( but without actually touching).

Three, is thee any blade damage that could be pulling the blade to the left? Try another blade and see what results you get.

If you need help determining if one or more of these issues are the problem you're experiencing, or if you need help making the adjustments, you're welcome to send photos of your machine and I can walk you through it.

How to change dewalt DW304 blade

In short, with as little force. 1) use a hex key to remove a small bolt at the tip of the reciprocating blade holder, right at the base of the blade. the blade should now wobble, but you may not be able to pull the blade free. 2), turn the saw so that you are looking from the front, blade pointing right at you. now slide the blade as far to the LEFT as possible. this should be the position that the blade clears the little round retaining nub on the left side of the shaft that fits through the hole on the blade and pulls free. sometimes the blade is too thick or is bend so this is difficult. 3) try yanking or wiggling while the blade is slid as far left as possible. i just had to pry / knock the blade free with a screwdriver and hammer. there is a narrowing at the very base of the blade before it enters into the mounting hole, and i just used a screndriver wedged in there and hit iy with a hammer WHILE having the blade slid over into the left position. 4) to make it easier for yourself the next time, use sandpaper to remove the paint of the base of the new saw blade, so you will be able to easily pull it free.

Not cutting in straight line

Normally blade overheating. Improper blade or too few teeth for material, teeth not sharp and/or offset enough for proper width of cut. Teeth must cut wider than blade. Inexpensive blades tend to do this quickly. Other possibility: Bad bearing, check for play with saw unplugged. Blade should have little wobble. Other possibility: Saw body cracked/damaged(allowing shaft to skew) or very cheap saw unable to handle material

Blower motor location for 2000 Caravan

The motor is located just under the glove box on the passenger side. I remove the glove box then the panel below the glove box. I also go ahead and pull back the carpet and the padding under the motor. It is held in place by 3-4 bolts that take a 7-8 millimeter socket. I use a swivel extension for the back bolts. The motor with the fan blade attached is a tight fit, just keep wiggling and pulling it should come out. Try to remove the old moter without cracking the fan blade, because sometimes the replacement motor doesn't come with a blade
