Hi,
Have a problem with my radial arm saw model TPC-2610B (1971)
The problem is that you have to go very slow cutting through any type of wood, especially oak even slower.
There seems to be that that internally it keeps turning but blade stops?? LIke a belt slipping but I know there is no belt, its all gears.
I have read in some open forums that there is a clutch adustment somewhere in motor housing
? but never a real good answer to a specific site.
Does anyone have a web site that directly shows how and where to adjust this? pictures?

Or can someone explain what I should do to correct this slippage?

thanks, Bob

Sounds like maybe one of the gears has come loose or been stripped. Found the Manual at this link in case you don’t have one. Good Luck

Hello Richard,
Thankyou for your reply,
hmmmmm? now you have me thinking, loose gear? hmmmmm? I think that could be it if the gear is set with a set screw, hmmmmm?
I really dont think its a stripped gear because its too smooth of a sound when blade stops turning and I think I would hear the sound of grinding metal.
So the gear is probably slipping. (Thats why someone mentioned a clutch adjustment)
This will be a heck of a job to pull this apart to open up?????
Thanks again for your thougt.
Bob
