SOURCE: Dewalt Table Saw

I don't know about Cleveland, but a while ago I replaced the bearing on my Sears Craftsman saw, and it wasn't a hard fix. I would expect any competent repair shop could do the repair easily. If you can get the arbor off and take it to the shop, that would be ideal. It only takes loosening a few bolts to get it off. I first removed the cast iron top from the sheet metal base so I could turn it over, but it can be done from the bottom, too. Just be prepared to eat some sawdust. The most specialized thing the shop would need is a bearing press to get the bearing in and out of its seat, and many shops would have these; they aren't very expensive. Maybe a good machine shop which does small jobs could do it for a small fee. A good place to find these is at your local auto parts store, such as NAPA or O'Riellys (here in MIssouri, anyway, but you get the idea). Your auto repair shop probably knows one or two they use for 'turning' brake drums, etc. BTY, I didn't have a bearing press and I did the job with carefully tapping the bearing back on with a sleeve made from a piece of scrap pipe. Tauton Press makes a great DVD on tuning up your saw after this fix, as you want to make sure
it is square with the table in two dimensions - parallel to the miter saw slots and perpendicular to the top. Good luck.

Normally DeWalt owners manuals are available from DeWalt ServiceNet (Click here),
But I have been unable to get any hits on that model number when I search the site. and I'm thinking you have probably purchased one of the older cast iron models, a 12 or 14", am I right?
Sometimes I've had luck finding manual for older machines at this link, but in your case I wasn't able to turn anything useful up there either...
In general, those saws had a two piece table, with a strip of 3/4" ply or particle board about 3-4" or so wide in back, and a wider piece in front, both about 3-4' wide. Between the two, on edge, sat a fence, approx.2 1/2" tall. The back table was sized so that the fence would be located in the correct reference to the blade, i.e. in front of the blade when the saw was pushed all the way back against its stop.. Then the thumbscrew clamps on either side of the table would squeeze the fence between the back section and the front section of the table.. The leveling screws beneath are used to level the table with respect to the path of the saw along the arm, so that, e.g., a tooth of the blade just skims along barely touching along its entire path of cut...
You can probably learn the correct sequence of adjustments for squaring the blade vertically and horizontally and adjusting for heel by examining other radial arm saw manuals, or perhaps consulting books on the subject...
Here's a link to an online forum on the subject
I haven't actually seen this book, but it looks interesting...Mr Sawdust
And finally, if you check back issues of Fine Woodworking online or at your local library, there are bound to be some articles on radial arms saws to help you along...
Sorry I couldn't hook you up with a manual, but I hope this helps... Good luck!

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

SOURCE: sheared off gear on motor of pro tech bench saw model 4106

You can probably get them replaced, but I haven't found any sites that list the Protech Saws, I did read some reviews on this tool and they are not favorable and you can buy a used one for less than 100.00 on some sites that sell items like this. The option would be yours but generally an armature is anywhere between 75.00 to 130.00 and the gear is usually around 30.00 it might be time to replace this one. Let me know if you have any other information on this and I will again try and find something more detailed for you.

My DeWalt saw starts then stops, like something overheats. ???

Belt drive or direct drive? Sounds like a bad bearing. Some of the DeWalt products are total garbage (we had a brand new bench grinder that was junk from day one).

Hi. I have a dw744 and the motor started to sputter/vibrate and spark a lot. How doe I know if I need to replace the brushes?

Not Much on saws but it is alot like a starter motor and if the Brushes wear down it will cause metal to metal contact with the armeture and will cause them to spark and soon wont work.

Dishwasher slides when both top and bottom trays are out at the same time


Please clarify if the dishwasher is tilting forward when both the trays are out.

If so there are ways to install the machine so that it will not tilt. If your dishwasher is installed under the kitchen bench and there is a gap on top, the machine will tilt from the weight of dishes once the trays are rolled out.

The legs are adjustable, therefore, free the hoses and power cord. Pull the machine out so that you can untwist the legs to a height suitable to minimise the gap. Just leave enough space to allow you to push the machine back in with ease. You can always pack in cardboard or phoam later when machine is in.
If after legs are heightened and you still have a big gap, the you need to get to pieces of timber cut on either top edge to fill the gap.
There are specialty brackets (e.g. L-shaped brackets) which you can buy and screw into the cabinet walls to hold machine in.
Some machines have holes on the side or top to allow you to screw in from the wall of machine into the cabinet. However, I do not believe Electrolux models have this.
Let me know if I have misunderstood your problem.

Hi my dewalt 708 lx sliding mitre saw, 110v, seems to only have half the power(speed) that it should have, and cannot cut timber on a compound cut because of this, any suggestions please.

I have heard complaints that this saw does not do well on angled cuts because of its low power. Try running a shorter and/or thicker extension cord and checking your input voltage. That's about all I can think of, hope it helps.

Jig Saws power

The more power the jigsaw has (measured in Voltage for cordless and Wattage for corded), the faster the cuts and the deeper they are - up to 70mm in timber or 8mm in steel.

Bench Grinders Objects

our bench grinder can be used to keep your chisels, knives, gouges and other similar cutting tools sharp, which every woodworker knows is vitally important. Also, bench grinders are handy for sharpening lawn mower blades, drill bits, gardening shears and more. Additionally, a bench grinder can be used for honing and shaping metal objects when modifications are needed. For instance, perhaps you need to modify a door hinge to make it fit in a certain application. No tool is better for this task than a bench grinder.
