Topic tags/keywords: manuals depth changes tablesaw question

Hi All,

I have an outdated 10” Trademaster construction table-saw that is in desperate need of a manual.
It has a 115/230 volt motor

The depth adjustment no longer keeps the depth set and tends to ruin projects. I’ve checked all the controls and the crank but cannot figure out why the depth is so loose.

When all pieces are removed so just the threaded rod that turns the worm gear is left, as shown next, it allows the depth to go up and down as I just push or pull on the threaded rod the crank fits on.

The parts were placed on the top of the table-saw for the picture that follows. There is a 3” long split ring bushing that fits behind the knob and crank.
Then over the split ring bushing is about a 4” long thick aluminum piece with the pointer on one end and an allen key that is tightened onto the shaft of the threaded crank. When all is attached and the allen key tightened, the depth can actually increase while cutting dados.

I’ve had to use clamp on the crank to try to keep the depth consistent. I’m looking for ways to fix the problem, especially since I just bought a brand new $400 fence. Sure hope someone has an idea of how to fix this issue. I’m in the middle of renovating a property, building the kitchen cabinets and the cost grows daily.

Thanks to for reading.

I’m pretty sure Trademaster was just another brand name of Mao Shan’s Taiwanese contractor saw. So were old PM, Jet, Grizzly 1022, Ohio Forge, Allied, Omega, AFF, King, and many others. The basic guts of many were remarkably similar, but with varying colors and bolt on stuff (wing materials, fences, hand wheels, and bases), so a manual or parts for one of the others might help.

I was so sure no one would know what I was looking for but this was perfect. The Grizzly G1022Z was exactly what I was looking for. Thank you very much!
