Radial arm saw #113.29440
Bevel adjustment has not been used in awhile and is froze up. The lock knob works fine and the latch pin moves up and down. The latch pin spring seems strong. With much WD-40 and pressure I can not get it to move at all. What do I need to do? Everything else about the saw works fine.

let an expert take the frustration out of unlocking the motor on the craftsman radial arm saw. i understand you have tried the wd-40, but an expert seems to believe you should try it several times. check out the link provided: radial arm saw motor. hope this is helpful.

thanks, i'll keep on trying but so far it's been four days and i've applied lots of wd-40 every day including tapping on the housing with a hammer.

thank you for your question. i am sorry you are having a problem with the saw. if the motor will not move when you try to change the tilt, i recommend loosening the four allen head bolts on the front of the handle. once they are loose, loosen the knob and try to rock the motor side to side. if the motor moves, the problem is the handle is rusted into the yoke assembly. to cure this you need to soak between the yoke and handle. then try to work the handle side to side. after you free it up use the instructions in the image below to adjust the blade. just click on the image to enlarge it. i hope this is helpful. please let me know if you need further assistance. thank you for using manage my life. mark t.
