Non-Automotive (Table Saw)

Hi All,

Stupid question:

I just bought a very used 10" Craftsman table saw from my B-i-L, which, in addition to both handwheels being stripped, was extremely filthy. I've fixed the handwheels and blown out most of the sawdust with shop air. The blade wheel now works fine, but the angle-cut wheel appears to be locked up. Does the blade need to be raised up before one can adjust the angle, or do the wheels work independently?

Thanks!

Russ

Craftsman used to use a threaded rod that goes thru a nut mounted to the blade carriage , these you can get to by turning the saw on its side or laying under it , a bit of wrench ease or the like should free it . I If its a 1940's model , they had a funky die cast gearbox deal. Usually broken and only available used. If its the screw type , you can use the adjustments together. The gearbox type I honestly don't remember but I think no ..If the arbor doesn't wobble and the motor runs , your ahead , BTW , use your air hose on the motor internals...

Got it figured! The tilt wheel was jammed against the stop. I flipped the saw over today, cleaned it a bit more, lubed the two Acme screws with dry-film moly, and tried it again. Initially, I was a bit leery of forcing the wheel since it was previously stripped, but all's good now...
