So I have a table saw craftsman model 103.21041; it’s legitimate antique, manufactured in 1959. Now it works absolutely well however one thing I found is that it is stuck at 30°. I cannot for the life of me get the adjustment knob to 0. The adjustment itself is a single knob, push in for angle adjustment and turn, pull out and turn for blade depth.

The knob won’t budge beyond 30° and I’m well out of my depth to fix this.

There are gears in there that permit the
dual-function of the adjustment knob.
You’ll have to flip it over or otherwise
get access and clean them up.

Time to clean out the inside of that old saw. Something is keeping the gears from moving, it’s up to you to figure it out. Starting is the hardest part. Just start.
