Question and Answers

Q:

Stop Block on Model Number 315.212050 315212050 Craftsman Miter saw

A:

Thank you for your question on the stop block.

Are you talking about the hold down clamp for the stop block or just the stop block?

The stop block does not get tight on the rails.

As you but the wood against the stop it should bind on the rails.

With my miter saw I use a C clamp behind the stop block when I position it on the rails so it will not move during repetitive cuts.

If you are referring to the hold down clamp screw it should tighten down against the wood to hold it.

Please let me know a little more details.

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.
