Quick question before we get into the answer. Does it have the stand with the the rubber feet or not?

Answer(s): The 3400 is a great portable go getter, but it is lightweight. It has a lot of torque for it's size and can do most any job you give it. The model does have an inherent vibration issue. Some more than others. If you don't have the stand, you will have to bolt it or clamp it to a heavy work surface / table. If you got the stand with the saw, it has two cross members on the legs at the same height. This sounds a bit harsh, but the best cheap solution is to get an 8 inch concrete block and bungee cord it to the top cross members on the stand. The weight should dampen the vibration so you can work on smooth surfaces. Use carpet strips under the concrete block to keep it from wearing down your cross members. Best of luck

How do I install on/off switch on Skil Saw 3400

It just pushes in and out. It is held in by plastic legs on the top and bottom of the switch. Reach behind the switch and squeeze on the top and bottom legs to compress them while you push the switch out. The new one will just snap into place as you push it in. Here is a parts diagram if it helps.

Can I order from anyone a new fence for a skilsaw fence model 3400.

Skil is part of Bosch Tools. You can go to their website. Click on "Search for your tool" under tool model # type in 3400. I believe the fence you are looking for is part #860 and costs about $34.00, however I would recommend calling them because there were so many variations on the 3400 that there may be more than 1 fence for model 3400 and you want to make sure you get the proper one.

I have a skill 3400. I flipped the on/off button and the motor started and then stopped immediately I figured it was the switch as this happend before but I put in a brand new switch and it still won't...

There is no fuse in the Skil 3400 saw. Check your cord, then brushes. You might have a broken brush spring, causing one brush to hang up in brush tube. Possibly there maybe a lot of sawdust holding a brush up.
