SOURCE: when I using my delta contractor saw model 36630,

I would suggest going to Dewaltservicenet.com and typing in the model 36-630 and looking at the schematic for this tool and yes the washer you are talking about holds a nut from moving too far or a lever and it needs to be in place. Let me know the possible area it came from and I will try and help more.

SOURCE: When replaced blade I can

You might be able to find a manual here.
You need to lock the blade in place so it doesn't rotate when you loosen the arbor nut. Many older rockwell/delta saws actually had a detent ground in the shaft behind the blade that allow the use of a second wrench to hold the shaft from spinning while the nut is loosened. It takes a special thin wrench to get in there, and the ones that came with the saws were bent just behind the head of the wrench to get around the blade and out the throat, but if you know anyone with a delta tablesaw they may have one you can borrow, or perhaps you can grind down an old cheapy that fits.
If that's not the case, try the instructions I gave in this link. You should be able to use the same block of wood to hold the blade firmly while tightening the nut against the blade collar washer. (Make sure you're using one, and didn't drop it into the sawdust below the saw when you removed the blade.)

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

De Walt radial arm saw old model 7740. Am trying to restore it to working condition Very difficult to change the height adjustment due to binding when trying to turn the handle on the top.


The manual for the saw is included below, To free the height it may be best to remove the saw carriage from the arm to reduce the weight.

Use WD40 or equivalent to cut the rust and a suitable grease to maintain the freedom. There is a worm screw that is below the cylinder that may need lubricating. The manual shows the assembly. I routinely apply 90 weight gear oil around the large tube where it goes into the housing,

How do I repair the tilt on my artisan table saw ?


I'm not familiar with your saw, but I'm familiar with table saws in general.
The tilting is achieved by a worm screw on the end of the crank handle engaging a partial worm gear on the tilt mechanism.
If all you get is clicking, the worm is jumping out of the teeth on the worm gear. It's likely that the shaft you're turning has slid a bit in its bearing and the far end of the worm is no longer constrained and no longer holds the worm tightly against the worm gear.
I'd say just take the whole thing apart and re-assemble it. In the process, you'll find out how the worm has slipped out of place and you'll see how to put it back where it belongs so that the worm is supported on both ends.

How do I adjust the worm gear on my table saw?


I believe that that model of Powermatic has a lock for the blade angle that also extends and retracts the casters for moving the saw. You may have unlock or change the handle position to allow for blade angle adjustment. You can get a manual or information at the Powermatic website to show you how to change the settings on the saw. Hope that helps.

I have a delta 34-444 table saw, is it a right or left tilt, or how do i find out?


Left-tilt, right-tilt refers to the direction the top of the blade can be tilted when it is not straight up and down. There will be an indicator on the front of the saw, normally pointing to zero. When you adjust the blade away from zero, if it tilts to the left, it is a left-tilt saw.

I have a 1/16" tilt


Your question is not very clear. Here are several answers.
By tilt you may be speaking of bevel adjustment 0 - 45 Some saws have hidden under the table or obvious positive bevel stops or screws in the table top for 90 and 45 degree. Adjust them.
You may have a bent or warped blade causing the "tilt."
Thin blades may be stiffened with blade stabilizing washers $14
With the saw unplugged remove the blade. Grab the threaded arbor shaft and pull it up and down. Next push the shaft straight in and out. If there is wiggle the bearings are worn and may need replacing.

The belt in the motor of my 10 inch delta table saw broke its a Bando synchronous 100XL belt...Think I can find a replacement...However, before it broke whenever I started the saw I noticed unusual sounds...


I have the delta 10 inch cabinet saw with the uni-fence, I bought just before somebody at delta smartened up with the left tilt blade, that is the worst design I have ever seen. I came real close to buying a Powermatic the same day I got this thing. Anyway, my saw sounds like a mack truck in reverse slamming the dump gate when it starts, I don't think there is anything to oil, it has bearings on the shaft. I found a ring of some sort on the floor one day that fell out of the saw, broken in half, I have never found where it came from. We just laugh at it, It is a bad saw. I bought the 12 Rockwell/delta planer the same week, Oh boy did we have fun with that, instantly went through the set of knives on it, maybe 3 passes, I said what the heck. I called delta and told them this is the biggest piece of junk I have ever seen, I said for $1300 it should put a finish on the board when it comes out, and it should have carbide knives, I said, If I had know it was made in Taiwan, i would have bought a grizzly. and saved $500. And gotten a better planer. She said, I'm sorry, I can send you some new knives. I sold it. Still have the saw though. Never had problems with the bearings. Hope this helps.

Blade is not square to table of 10" cabnet saw is there an an adjustment somewhere


The adjustment for the Delta cabinet saw (Assuming you mean the Unisaw model) is made by loosening the four bolts that hold the cast iron table to the cabinet and adjusting the table to square it to the blade. Make sure you retighten them a little at a time and working on opposite corners as you go so that you tighten them all evenly.
The only adjustments for the blade are the stops associated with the tilt of the arbor. While you have the top loose, it's a good opportunity to clean up the inside of the saw.

How do I align the saw blade with the saw table I have a 10 inch Delta Contractor's saw that is about 10 years old. The blade is not straignt with the miter slot. andyc@bergeralllied.com


The Blade Arbor is held to the bottom of the table with mounting screws and stop/adjusting screws. Loosen the mounting screw and adjust the stop screws to make Blade true with miter slot.

Bought model 3400 skil table saw. have no manual. can't find control for tilting blade. how do i tilt blade


This model does not have a knob on the side.
There is only a locking lever on the front next to a single rotating wheel for height adjustments. To tilt the blade simply twist the locking lever to the left and push the height adjustment wheel to the right. It can be a bit stiff at times to move.
