* The base plate can be tilted to make angled cuts. Most saws adjust from 90 degrees to slightly less than 45 degrees, making it possible to cut bevelled ends on boards for corning attachments, hip-roof rafter cuts, and even miters. Most saws are equipped with a thumbscrew or lever to loosen the bolt which keeps the saw blade on the correct angle for the cut you are making, located on the front of the saw. Some are also equipped with a scale which indicates the blade angle, from '0' (90 degrees, or square to the board surface) to 45 degrees. * The blade can be set to the depth required for individual cuts, from less than 1/8 inch to the full depth the blade is capable of penetrating. The lever or thumbscrew which locks the base plate at the desired height is usually located at the rear of the motor on the left side. * Many circular saws are equipped with a ripping fence, to guide the blade as you make a rip cut along the edge of a board, giving you a straighter, parallel cut. * Dust ejector. A few newer saws are equipped with a dust ejector to blow the sawdust away from the operator's face and from the mark where the cut is being made. * Laser tracking light. Some newer saws are equipped with a laser that projects a bright, red line down the path of the blade travel. These can also be purchased to retrofit on older units that are not factory equipped with them. * Blade guard. This should be considered a essential safety feature on any saw, and has two parts, the fixed guard over the top of the blade, and the floating guard, which rolls out of the way as the saw is pushed into the work piece. Some have a handle so the blade guard can manually be lifted for plunge cutting or easier viewing of the cutting mark.

How do I remove the bearing from the drive end of the armature from an AEG WSE802 Angle Grinder?

Dear Michael,

Here offered is a video by Taimo T that offers the entire process. Close attention is needed to absorb his procedure. The foundation is the basis for angle electric grinders.
Angle Grinder And Its Bearings
Please watch the entire presentation.

A small bearing puller works best. Here is examples of one to buy or borrow.

ATD Tools 3056 Bar Type Puller Bearing Separator Set in Molded Storage and....
Pump Pulley Remover Straight Type Two Claws Bearing Puller
Hand Tool

Wilmar W137P 6 3 Jaw Gear Puller
Neiko 19 Piece Automotive Bushing Bearing Driver Tool Set

The alternative is to squeeze the old bearing in a vice with soft jaws . Then move the end shaft with a brass hammer or punch to remove with an internal fit.

Fare. Well.

Dear Sir, We have few Metabo grinder I have some doubt about Dead man switch can you explain me what is the function of dead man switch. Regards Nitin

Hello, a dead man switch functions in this manner. As long as you hold the switch down the grinder functions, and as you know when you release it the grinder stops. This is a good safety feature in that if you drop the grinder of lose control of it, if the grinder stays running it could cause a lot of damage to material or your body. The switch can seem to be a pain when having to hold it down all the time, but it is a safety feature that can actually save your life in the case of you losing control of the unit.

It just stopped working no bad smell of brushes, it just turned off.

lightly tap on it in the brush area. a brush may not be making contact. could also be a burnt switch. you didn't say what kind of grinder so i am guessing its a hand held unit. brushes could be dislodged or so short that the springs are not pushing them to make contact.

I had been using this grinder for about 2 weeks with no problems. A few days ago while using it it just popped and hasn't worked since.

These are great grinders. I have two of them. One version (more expensive one) has soft start and good overload system. Other version is basic grinder. if it (popped) most likely a short in the motor. Is it possible you got an unusual amount of grinding dust into the grinder? This grinder has a safety feature on the brushes, that keeps from burning up the armature when the brushes wear out. I doubt you've worn out a set of brushes in 2 weeks, unless you've been using it non stop. At least one of the brushes has a small plastic insulating pin inside the carbon. When the brush wears down enough to expose the plastic pin, the spring loaded pops out, lifting the brush from the armature , which opens the circuit. You could remove the brush holders and inspect the brushes. If it is 2 weeks old it is under warranty, and you should return it where you bought it.

My older craftsman bench grinder switch is broken. Sears no longer stocks the part. what other kind of switch may be used in its place?

Got any old computers kicking around? They have all kinds of switches that will fit. Or radio shack, any 110 volt single switch will work, But you want one to fit the old hole. A regular light switch will work.

High vibrations & pinion looseningin 4" angle grinder

Could be couple things the wheel is out of balance or out of round causing the vibration, the armature shaft could be bent causing this also the bearings could be bad. One last thing to look at is the fan on the armature to make sure not cracked or missing fins. Let me know the model and brand and I will look further
