So since you guys have always helped me in the past I have another question. Picked up a used grizzly g1022 the other day. When I go to lower the blade the worm shaft moves towards the real of the saw I’ve pulled the top, cleaned everything. Is there supposed to be a locking collar on there towards the front of the shaft to keep it from moving? Also the parts diagram shows a fairly long spacer between the worm screw and the eccentric sleeve. The spacer on mine is about 3/8ths of an inch. Any help would be appreciated

I can’t help directly except for links and pics. If all else fails, looking at machines from the same factory might help….these were from Mao Shan in Taiwan. Many brands are the same basic saw, including older Jet, PM, Bridgewood, Ohio Forge, Omega, AFF, and others.

Here’s a parts diagram, and parts link

Thanks knotscott. I’ve never had a worm shaft move on me like this. The tilt shaft has 2 locking collars on it but the diagrams u linked to and in the user manuel don’t show one. And part number 119 isn’t even on the parts list. All these guts to contractor saws all look pretty similar I might try a lock collar on the shaft and see if it fixes the problem

I have a g1022 I will check on the worm shaft
(AKA pinion shaft) this weekend when I return home.

I can probably take some pictures also..

Have your say...
