A while back I had A Problem with the Arbor Pulley ,Some time before I got the Saw the Set Screw
in the Pulley went Missing. Trying to Figure out how to get it off for repair I unhooked The Angle Adjustment screw shaft.after finally getting it fixed and reconnecting everything my saw will not go to 45 Deg. it gets Really tight and stops around 30-35 Deg.

Anybody have any Idea of a Fix or Adjustment

Thank You in Advance!

What saw? Emerson (113) made everything from small bench top things to cabinet saws for Sears.

While observing the mechanism, you should be able to determine what is binding when you crank the bevel… but before doing anything, I’d make sure it’s thoroughly clean and lubed. Just a little bit of sawdust can bind the gears pretty easily. And don’t just clean the gears/threads, also check the trunnion ways and other parts. Then crank the wheel and observe the mechanism. Could be something as simple as improperly placed stop collars or an off by a tooth or two alignment problem with the threaded adjusting rod. If you had it out, it might be helpful to remove it again and try moving the arbor by hand to make sure it does in fact freely move… simple matter of removing possible causes until you find the right one.

I’m sure others will chime in with more suggestions as well.

Cheers,
Brad

PS: Since you had things apart, you might want to go through the adjustment procedures in the manual just to make sure everything is aligned and set properly. A lot can get out of whack when you start taking stuff apart, so it’s kind of like starting from the beginning when you put it all back together.
