How to lift saw blade. My saw is many your old and bought for another. I now need to use it but do not know how to lift cutting blade

The bed moves down so that less blade shows on a skill saw. The locking lever is usually between the blade guard and the handle. Look for a lever and pull it up to unlock, then move the bed down to expose less blade, then push the lever down to lock the bed in place. Please supply a picture of the saw you are using.

How do you tilt the back up on the k45 kitchen stand mixer?

To raise the head you move the locking lever back & lift the front of the motor unit up. To lower it you also move the locking lever to the back and then lower the head and release or push the locking lever forward to lock the head down while using it.

Tv lift does not raise to proper level the details below explain all this

Dear Ted
Sounds like the stop limit is incorrect. There are three possible ways motors establish a stop limit. The most common is a limit switch(a small black box with a lever or button that sops the motor when this lever/button is activated). There are two one to stop on the way up and one on the way down. If this is the case then the up switch is being pressed too early something might have come loose and is now activating this switch early. The second way is through electrical current monitoring. When the motor controller detects a higher current draw it stops. This happens when the mechanism reaches the travel limit and stops moving creating resistance to the motor turning and the motor daws a higher current to continue pushing. the motor controller senses this and stops the motor. Check to see that nothing is hampering the travel of the rails creating resistance. The third method is to program the motor controller for a specific time or motor turns to stop the mechanism travel at preset levels. This can be found in the installation manual.
Hope this helps.

Sounds like worn teeth on the gears on either the motor or lift mechanism. Did you replace only the motor or motor and regulator (lift mechanism)?

Chevy Malibu 2005 window wont roll up or down.

Sounds like the window regulator broke (the mechanism that moves your window up and down). It has cable to do the lifting the window up and pulling the window down. These cables do break.

Need manual to set timer

You posted under T-100 series outdoor timer
If you have different timer, add a comment with timer model number located inside cover.

T-104, T-103, T-101 timer manuals show on following page:
If your timer has R suffix, like T-101R, that means box is Raintight for outdoor use.
T-101R and T-101 mechanisms are identical except for box. T-101 box is indoor use.
Click model number and drop-down menu reveals link to manual

If you need simple wiring diagrams, and explanation for each T-104, T-103, T-101 timer:

Here's how to set Intermatic T100 series timers:
Lift and rotate yellow dial until current time lines up with silver pointer.
Silver pointer is stationary at 6 o'clock position.
Put ON-OFF trippers on dial at times you want ON OFF functions.
Minimum on-off is 1 hour because of tripper width.
If timer is not working, add a comment and we'll troubleshoot.

These timers have replacement trippers and clock motors at Grainger

How timer works:
Clock motor, located on back of mechanism, rotates yellow dial.
Trippers on dial push lever that turns power ON and OFF.
Off tripper pushes lever one direction.
ON tripper pushes lever opposite direction.
When lever is pushed, manual override lever clicks back and forth with audible click sound.

My Tork 1103 timer is used at my office building to set the lights outside for security. My maintence person sets them, then all of a sudden they are wacky and come on at the wrong time. I would like to...

This is probably very similar to your timer.
The Tork 1100 series is electro-mechanical timer.
Lift and rotate dial to set current time.
Line up current time with the word Time located to lower right of dial.
The trippers are black and silver.
I think the black is OFF and silver is ON
Clock motor rotates dial as time passes.
Trippers contact a lever.
Off tripper pushes lever one way.
On tripper pushes lever other way.
The manual override clicks back and forth as trippers move lever.
To check function of timer, click manual override
Common problems:
1) Clock motor is not rotating dial
2) Trippers get stuck on lever and can't move lever because timer is dirty or worn out, or clock motor is bad.
3) Trippers are worn down and won't trip the lever.

Replacement of these timers is simple
Check out the functions and problems and then answer this post and I will help more if needed

Lost Tonka part

I can't tell you how to get a replacement part (Funrise was SUPREMELY unhelpful for me, too), but we devised a solution for our broken truck.....cut a black hair elastic and thread it through the two holes of the part that would hold the fork. Tie a knot so that it sits inside the little cavity inside that part. Your kiddo can then attach the garbage can to the lifting mechanism by using the elastic--works almost as well as the fork. Hope this helps!
