Spray some dry lube on the shafts and metal that rubs, should take care of the issue.

I would guess it is something more than lubrication, perhaps a blade that is too big (diameter) for the saw and contacting the blade housing.

I thought that may be the issue Phil however it still squeals without a blade installed. I will try what mrg suggested. I may have to get in there with some more air to try to blast any lingering saw dust there may be. After that shooting some dry lube and see if that help.

Thanks for the help gentlemen

Just needs lubrication. Dry lube, paraffin wax, etc… stay away from grease or any ‘wet’ lube that will attract sawdust.

Cheers,

I went thru this with my saw, could not get the grinding squeeling to quit tried every dry lube out there. Didnt last more than a week,so I finally greased the sector and worm,been good for months now with no problems. SawStop actually recommends greasing the said parts every 6 months, the sawdust seems to get wiped away and is alot softer than the cast iron and wont hurt anything.

Taken from sawstop manual.

Elevation and Tilt Mechanisms:
The elevation and tilt gearing should be kept clean and well lubricated. Periodically check the condition of the
elevation miter gears and threaded shaft, and the tilt worm gear and sector gear. If necessary, clean off any dust, dirt, pitch or other debris using a wire brush, and then reapply a good quality, non-hardening grease.

Thanks for the input. Would it hurt anything to use some PB blaster to clean the grime off and then hit it with the non-hardening grease?

PB is a penetrating oil, not a cleaner. But dont think it will hurt.

Thanks Richard, I knew it wasn’t a cleaner, however I just cleaned up the cast iron top so I figured I’d use what I have on hand.

Thanks for the input guys
