I have a craftsman 10 inch compound miter saw (model MODEL NO. 137.212360 SN#041300896). A few weeks back i noticed that when adjusting the angle of the blade it was becoming increasing hard to turn the blade assembly whether it be to 45 degrees right or left. today I got motivated and disassembled the (part X3RS – TABLE) from the (part X3SS – BASE). There is a (part X3SQ – SLIDE PLATE) between the two. I noticed that it looks like the saw has been ‘rubbing’ one side of the slide plate to the point where it has made a groove in the metal. The table now falls into theis groove and is what is making it so difficult to turn. I tried lubricating it to cut down on the friction which made it slightly better but didn’t solve the problem so I am asking the larger community for any suggestions.

I looked up the part and while it is an inexpensive fix I would still like to know why its doing this.

parts diagram attached.
