I was doing some late night work last night and had issues with the table saw and the miter saw that prevented me from using them. Any advice or feedback would be greatly appreciated.
TABLE SAW: I was trying to cut thin strips of wood using the table saw, just under 1”. The fence seemed to be binding the wood at the end of the cut and creating kickback. I tried adjusting the fence but I got kickback three times in a row and couldn’t figure out to fix the issue. Any advice?
MITER SAW: I couldn’t get the miter saw to lower. It would track forward and back but wouldn’t drop to actually cut. I researched common causes online and the popular advice was to lubricate the safety mechanism that controls the blade drop. I ended up not using the saw because I didn’t feel comfortable running that fix off a YouTube video by myself. Is there a known issue or way to fix this?
Thank in advance guys!
