I recently got a Delta 36-725 TS and I’m having some difficulty adjusting the blade alignment. I’ve been using this video and this power point to adjust it but when I loosen the two screws as instructed, the motor doesn’t budge. I’ve tried various degrees of looseness and had others check my work but nothing seems to work. I’m sure there is something I am missing, maybe some safety feature I have to disengage first but I can’t locate it for the life of me. Any help would be appreciated.

I’m of no help because when I loosened those two set screws on my 36-725 the motor will move. So I don’t know what the issue is. I put both of my hands on it when turning it. One hand towards the blade end and the other hand on the butt end of the motor and twisted in opposite directions.

I found this on the net. I don’t one of these so use at your own risk.

If this does not work then just scan the net.

That is what I have been doing and nothing moves. I have even gone as far as taking the two bolts completely out and and it still doesn’t budge.

That is the video that I have been using and linked in my original post. The video follows the same steps as every thing else I can find online but it simply isn’t working on my saw. After searching half the day yesterday I can’t find anyone else with the same issue.

Wondering if it needs a little tap to break free.

I guess I might as well try, I just imagine the amount of times I have tried to twist the motor it would have broken free already.

Well that worked, I grabbed a 2×4 and a hammer, whacked the motor a hand full of times and it seems to be twisting now. Not sure why I didn’t try that earlier but I appreciate the suggestion.

You’re welcome. Hope the rest of your day (and mine) is that simple! ;-)

I was thinking about saying to give it a whack but the motor case is plastic and I wasn’t sure that was good advise.

Have your say...
