  • Plain end to pinned end

    I posted earlier but cannot find my thread - or post - I'll just have to ask again.

    I have an antiquate Ryobi Mod #SC162VS - I've been using plain end blades but stripped out set screw - waiting on new parts. Problem - when I try to use my old pinned blades the arm will not tension, it's like the pinned blades are too long now. I have no problem with plain end blades.

    The upper arm has some play in it and am wondering if there is a tension screw to bring this up. All other parts or in great condition.

    And yea, I'm saving up for a new DeWalt..

    There should be, so you can ad tension or release tension.

      JCJAGS4560 - don't know about the tension problem your having, but I noticed you said your saving up for a DeWalt... the Delta is the same saw but it may be a little less in the overall cost - and I'm not promoting either saw, just thought you'd like to know. Check out Issue 40 for a buyers guide.

      Good luck...
