When it cuts out while cutting heavy wood, there are several things you can do.

First, check to be sure you are not feeding the wood in too fast.
Next, be sure the saw blade is clean of pitch.
And, be sure the blade and fence are aligned.
Are the teeth of the saw showing completely over the wood? Just the tooth should stick up over your board.
Also, if this is a continuous problem despite cleaning and all the above, installing heavier belts sometimes helps.

Any guard blade for a saw miter


Yes, Did you buy it new? It has two heavy plastic seen through plate that are attached to each other. This safety shield is gravity fed. That mean as one pull down the saw the safety guard will pivot into the upper shield. As the saw go back up after cutting a piece of wood. The safety shield will drop back into it safety position covering the 12" blade. GB...stewbsion

My saw will cut for 5 seconds and then the blade stops spinning. When I back the blade out it starts again and the process is repeated. It takes a long time to cut wood this way. What's the problem? Is...


I would suspect a combination of the two! You blade probably isn't sharp and your saws brushes are probably getting worn. The brushes are made of carbon and are pushed up against the rotor by a spring. As the brush wears down the spring doesn't put as much pressure on the brushes which means it will stop working when placed under heavy load.

When cutting wood with band saw saw will cease up


This could have many causes...depending on the model of saw, the wood being cut, the blade you're using, etc. etc.
Check that the blade is correctly installed, up to tension, and sharp. Make sure the wheels run smoothly on their on, and under power. Check the horsepower of the motor, and make sure to keep the feed rate down within the motor's capacity. Finally, don't twist the work being cut to a smaller radius than the size blade will handle, or you will bind the blade in the cut.
If you are cutting wood with pitch or grain that is likely to be under tension, perhaps you need to insert a wedge into the cut to prevent the work from pinching the blade as it continues the cut.
I hope that leads to a solution. Sometimes all you can do is feed slowly and be patient...

Saw has no power.


Does the motor continue to run, but the arm stops? It sounds like the set screw on the motor shaft is loose. See the exploded view at this link. It's called out as # 97 http://www.dewaltservicenet.com/Products/DocumentView.aspx?productid=5682&typeId=3475&documentId=333

When cutting softwood/ hardwood should the saw


The blade should only be on a slow speed, for intricate work.
(To make sure that whatever you're cutting, doesn't get too excited.)
Otherwise, it should generally be on the fastest setting.
Thats it, oh except, be carefull and mindfull of what this baby can do;)
Don't forget to rate, thanks

Use a pencil and straight edge to mark the cutting line on the wood. Place the wood on the saw table and line the mark up with the saw. Place the mark on the right side of the blade to ensure proper cutting. Plug the saw in and put on your safety goggles. Support the wood on the work surface with your left hand, placing it far from the saw blade. Place your right hand on the handle, and push the trigger to start the saw. Move the saw blade down onto the wood. Put constant pressure on the handle to slowly move the blade through the wood. Release the trigger and raise the blade once the cut is complete. Make diagonal cuts in the same manner, by marking the wood and lining the mark up just to the right of the saw blade. Continue as you would for a straight cut. Remove the wood from the saw. Unplug the chop saw and dust the sawdust off. Remove the dust bag from the back and empty it. Vacuum any remaining dust off of the saw.
