Hello everyone.. This is my first post on this site so please bear with me…

I just purchased a very clean Grizzly G1022 Pro table saw. Everything works as it should but for one thing. The wheel that raises and lowers the blade can’t be locked. The center knob that should lock the wheel in it’s set position doesn’t change the resistance of turning the wheel at all… Any suggestions?

IIRC, that just uses a friction lock by jamming the handwheel up against the pointer bracket behind it. I’d check to make sure the pointer bracket set screw is tight and the bracket is correctly positioned. It also might be due to wear, so the lock knob no longer has enough travel to fully lock the handwheel before bottoming out on the stud. In that case, a washer behind the knob may be needed.

Cheers,
Brad

Thank you Brad… I tried a washer that isn’t a good “fit” and it did help quite a bit… I will experiment with different sizes and thicknesses until I get what I want… Good call…! :-)
