Q:

Miter Table is extremely hard to turn 315212050 Craftsman Miter saw

A:

Thank you for your question.

 

I am sorry you are having a problem with the miter saw. If the table does not rotate as it used to I suspect you have some dust and debris between the table and base. The best way to resolve this problem is to tip the saw up so the saw is resting on the back mounting tabs. Then blow between the base and table with compressed air. Then turn the table and blow it out again. Keep doing this until you do not get any more dust out of it after turning it. Once you have it blown out, go ahead and check the operation. If it still seems tight, try applying some dry graphite between the table and base. Then work it side to side. This will usually cure the problem. If it still is sticky, you will need to investigate further. I recommend removing the table from the base. Then inspect for areas that are wearing. If it has a defective part, it should be easy to spot because of the wear it would have.

 

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know what you find. I will be happy to assist you if needed.

 

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Thank you for your question. I will be happy to assist you. In order to remove the long bolt in the handle you need to remove the carrying handle and the four screws below it. The image below shows what has to be removed. Once you have the cover removed, you will see an e-clip and a spring. If you remove the e-clip, the bolt should slide out.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark

Hello Mark, thank you for the detailed image of the e-clip. It looks like it is an m shaped clip in the image. The one in my saw is a round ring that goes all the way around the bolt. Can you please tell me if I can remove it by putting a small screw driver between the clip and the bolt?

A:

So I did get the e/c clip off. I can push the bolt out enough to get a wrench around the nut but the whole bolt turns. The bolt (part #13 in the diagram) has threads on the back end but about 1 inch of flat area with no threads on it. Can I use that to clamp and then turn the nut with a wrench?

Syed , If the bolt is turning when you try to remove the nut you can use a pair of pliers on the flat part of the bolt to keep it from turning. Once the nut is removed the bolt should slide out. I you could take some pictures of the saws handle and post them I am sure other users will find them helpful. Thanks Mark
