Looks to me that a c-clip or screw fell off allowing things to come apart. If nothing is actually busted it may be a matter of just putting it back together.

I’d suggest going to the web site than load your model and type in to the locater. This site has excellent breakdown diagrams. With a little studying I’m sure you’ll have a better idea of whats wrong. For what ever reason, the adjustment screw has come loose and allowed the guide to fall out of it’s groove

The doohickey popped loose from the thingamajig. I think something bent or you lost a retaining clip.

Is this a trick question?

Took me a second, I’m guessing it’s a portable table saw and that’s a picture from underneath the blade height adjustment assembly, after a clip has left it’s post

Don’t listen to those other guys. Clearly you have run out of Dilithium Crystals. Hence, your warp drive is warped.

I think you used to be able to purchase Dilithium Crystals at Woodcraft, but they might be back ordered. Good luck.

After opening the photo and looking at the image it looks like the threaded piece needs to be put back in the hole in the bracket. It looks to be held in with a c-clip. The piece that the threaded bolt goes through with the two nuts rides in the grooves in the bracket.

As said above look up the parts schematic on replacements and you should see how it goes together or what parts may be missing.

Tell us the make and model and we may be able to help further.
