Hi all. Just signed up and have a question regarding an older model Delta 10 Contractors saw.

I don’t use the saw a lot but recently went to use it and the raise/lower for the blade was stuck to the point I sheared off the pin for the hand wheel. I took the saw apart to see what i could find. Cleaned it and no change.

The question I have is this, bear with me.

There is a the angle/tilt indicator and a smaller tube that fits inside of the indicator. I removed them both and it seems to adjust much better now. If I need to cut a bevel I always use an adjustable angle finder, so I don’t need the indicator on the same itself.

There also appears to be a nut on the shaft that adjusts the height, it is loose and almost impossible to get tight. There’s just no room to get a wrench on it. That nut seems to hold a collar in place that the shaft runs through to the worm gear.

It seems to work fine, at this point anyway. Am I missing something here? Is that nut critical to be super tight? I know it should be, but I just can’t get at it to put enough torque on it. When it is tighter, the raise/lower seems to bind.

I know this description isn’t the best, so if you have questions/ advice, let me know.

Thanks in advance.

Have your say...
