Discussion for the Delta 36-979 10" Left-Tilt Contractor's Saw
I made a cut. I turned the saw off to adjust for another cut. I turned the saw back on but the motor started turning very slow. Do they have a start capacitor? I know the motor didn't overheat. I had just started working, the saw had only ran for thirty seconds and the motor didn't feel warm.
I purchased my tablesaw p reassembled as the display model at Lowes. Unfortunately they lost the owners manual. since bringing it home I have found out the person responsible for assembling the saw should be fired. many things were wrong, including the blade on backwards. ( I didn't notice till the basement filled with smoke.) My biggest dilemma now is the motor mount. I am not sure how it is supposed to be mounted but I know the belt is not supposed to rub on the frame. I cannot figure the adjustment correctly. any help in this direction would be a great help!
Is there anyone out there know the proper name of the tool used to take out the BEARING CLOSURE NUT when taking out the arbor on the 36-979 delta 10' table saw.And where I might be able to buy this tool :(
I have not seen a special tool to remove the closure nut. I have always used a flat screwdriver and a hammer to remove closure nuts. Put the point of the screwdriver against the shoulder of the groove on the closure nut. Tap the screwdriver with a hammer and the nut will loosen. Once loosened you can unscrew the nut.
