Never even think of touching that blade with it plugged in. Your Ryobi may have a reset button or overload device on it. If not, the switch may have kicked the bucket.

I have a TS300 table saw and the blade does turn immediately when power upped, the blade speed seem low, and the blade easily stall when cutting - even 1/4" ply.


There are two windings in the motor, a starting winding and a running winding. There's also a centrifugal starting switch in the motor that switches from the starting winding to the running winding once the motor gets up to speed. Sometimes the switch can get stuck and you almost have to give the blade a spin with your hand to get it moving-- and then it moves slowly till it picks up speed.
A rating on that saw complains it doesn't have a whole lot of power, but yours doesn't sound like its under-designed -- it sounds like there's something wrong. Does it smell hot when running? Does the arbor turn freely? Are you using a long extension cord? (dont!)
I hope you don't need a new motor ($255)
If you do, I'd sell the thing for parts on CraigsList and look for another saw in the same place. I bought one table saw on craigslist for $60 and another for $45. (You might have to watch the listings every day for a year or so to get those kind of prices.) Both of the ones I bought are belt-drive contractor's saws with a 1.5 hp motor outside the box on the back side of the saw.

How do you change a blade on model 36-075


Lots of saws have left hand threads on the nut that holds the blade in place. It is designed so that if the saw starts up and the nut isn't snug, the nut and the blade slipping on the turning arbor would tend to tighten the nut as they slip against the force of the spinning arbor.
1. Unplug the saw.
2. Hold on to the blade tightly with one hand.
3. Put the wrench on the arbor nut and turn it in the direction you would turn it as if the wrench were turning the blade to cut wood.

If you've previously overtightened the blade, jamb a piece of wood against the teeth and the saw table top and then follow step 3.

If the motor is on the left side of the blade as you face the saw, then it's a standard right hand nut.
If the motor is on the right side of the blade as you face the saw, then its a left handed nut.

Witch way to turn the blade bolt on a 10" table saw


I'd be surprised if it were anything but a normal, right handed thread.

So, put on some leather gloves, block the blade from turning with a piece of scrap lumber. Use the appropriate size blade wrench and, I assume you're removing the blade, pull the wrench toward you to loosen it. Always remember, lefty loosy, righty tighty and you'll never wonder which way to turn it again. Obviously if this method tightens the nut rather than loosening it, it's a left handed thread and needs to go the opposite direction. Should loosen/tighten rather easily, so don't force it one way or the other.

Hitachi C9U2 circular saw problems with starting. tries to start but won't go.


Could be a faulty capacitor. Without the rectified current and the added emf or oomph the motor cannot move or is not sure which direction to move in. so it may sit there buzzing or even set off in the wrong direction.

New to table saw use, have my husbands old 10 craftsman, was learning to rip with it doing fine, then it started to bog down during cut until the blades stops, moving. put on a new blade and noticed...


If I understood correctly, you started using your husband's table saw and while ripping boards, you managed to stall out the blade AND motor?! If that's the case, you probably have a very dull blade and are binding your board on the blade. Neither is safe and it sounds like trouble is brewing.

First and foremost, get someone to show you how to safely and properly use and adjust the saw if you are new to wood working and power tools. That saw is capable of turning your lumber into a high speed missal if you do things improperly.

It also sounds like you tried installing a new 10" saw blade. Changing the blade requires 2 wrenches. One to hold the arbor and one to tighten the nut. The blade itself should rest on the arbor between two large washers. Also make sure you install the blade so the front face of the cutter teeth face you and rotate toward you. Make sure the saw is unplugged when changing the blade and never turn on your saw with a loose blade.

Blade stuck


two key tricks-- use a block of wood to keep the blade from turning,(you might need three hands) and turn the nut in the direction that the teeth of the blade are pointing.

Can't loosen arbor nut


Use a block of wood to hold the blade from turning and pull the wrench toward you. Most saws will have the nut on the right side of the blade and will use a right-hand thread. But if the nut is on the left side of the blade, it will be a left-handed thread. In either case, PULL. The crescent wrench should work fine if you place the block of wood in a position where the blade naturally jambs into it and cannot turn. If the washer is correctly placed you do not need to tighten the nut all that much. If it is really stubborn, use a little WD40. Clean it off thoroughly after you get it apart.

I'm a wife with a do-it-yourself knack. I recently purchased a Ryobi 10 in. BTS211 table saw. I find the manual complicated as far as how to actually use the device. Can you recommend where I can get...


I am a retired contractor.
I have a shop with a 10" table saw.
And I have opinions about safe operation.

For safety, turn saw off when making adjustments.

1) Raise blade:
There is a handle you turn to raise the blade.
If you are cutting 1/2" plywood, then set your blade at 3/4" or a bit more.
Keep blade low and away from hands.
Keep hands high and away from blade.

For 1-1/2" thick 2x4, I usually set the saw at 1" and run the board through, and then flip the board over and run it through again, taking 2 passes to make really thick cuts.

2) Blade angle
There is a second handle you turn to set blade at an angle up to 45 degrees
Angle cannot be set if saw blade is fully raised >> lower blade to half way or less and experiment.
Angle cuts are difficult if wood is not perfectly flat and square, or too long or too short (boy is that helpful ... but cutting angles takes some experimentation)

3) Table Guide
You stand behind power saw to operate
The saw table guide is on left side of blade and clamps across the table
The guide markings show inches >>> these are usually approximate
To set guide for accuracy, measure distance from blade to saw guide, and then clamp guide down.

4) Push sticks push sticks push sticks and other safety stuff
Let me emphasize safety first last and always
A table saw will chop your fingers off in a blink
On the plus side, I hear it doesn't hurt. But OMG.
There is a very strong human instinct to reach in with your hand when working on stuff
Train your mind >> if the saw is running, do not lean or reach into the saw
If a board is stuck >>> turn off the saw and wait for full stop
If you wear baggy clothes of a loose shirt, the saw will grab you and pull you in too fast for you to react
Keep your clothes tight and your arms bare

Always use push sticks or push boards::
673c22b.jpg
Notice the saw blade is set low
Two push sticks are used to assist when cutting short board > one stick holds down the board ahead of blade, the other stick is pushing board through saw.
Keep your hands away from the blade no matter what.
The person stands behind and to the side of the board being cut.
The cut wood is supported by a catch table (in this case there are rollers)

Where to stand
Obviously you stand behind the saw to cut wood, and sometimes with long pieces, you can move in front and pull them through, and sometimes with large plywood you stand kinda back and to the side.

Why not stand directly behind a saw? Because saws throw stuff back.
When 'ripping' a board lengthwise as shown in photo above, if the saw catches the board just right, it will throw it backwards like a spear.

If a board 'binds' the saw causing saw blade to stop, then turn off saw, back up the board, and cut again.

Crosscut guide
The saw comes with a T-shaped guide that fits into a groove.
This is a 'push stick' >>> you use it to cross cut a board, and it lets you stand to the side of the saw blade so things wont flip back on you
When using the cross cut guide, remove the table guide that clamps across the saw, or push the table guide WAY back so pieces don't get caught in a bind and the blade flips up the piece and hits you in the face
Remember, the saw throws everything backwards

The saw is strong and fast, and you are best when traveling slow and without rush around your strong friend.

PM2000 tablet saw won't spin up with 3/4" 8" dado stack. Trips overload limit switch.


Check your alignment of the blades, sounds like they are hitting something and will not turn. To check unplug saw and try to turn blades by hand. If they don't turn thats the problem, if they turn check and make sure that the blade is the right type for saw. But if the regular blade works fine you have a binding problem with the dado blades.
