    It sounds like you need to adjust the set screw on the opposite side of the thumb screw. And don't forget to put some loctite on it.

    If you need a tool and don't buy it, you will pay for it and not have it

        I think he hit it on the head. Also check it for burs on the tip.

          I have some odd size blades that are over 5 years old and work with no issues when I do need them. I agree it sound like an adjustment issue.

            I don't know the details but at one time there was a issue with those blades as they heated them up on the top to mark the top end of the blade so you would put it in the saw correctly. Now they have a bend in the top end to mark the blade..Maybe Mike could shed some light on this..

              I've got blades 10 years old and they still work fine. I think your first piece of advice is what is going on. I found the light I have next to my saw heated up the thumbscrew and released the loctite. I have since gotten a smaller bulb and used some fresh loctite(blue)

                The blades had a little dent on top in the beginning and a little discoloring. However it was not done by heating the top. Now it is only a little marking.

                      Check the counter at an auto parts store. Lots of times they will have a small pouch of loctite, just right for small jobs and not have to worry about a bigger & expensive bottle drying out.

                      Most of the time, they're about $1.50 to $2.

                        by Bill Wilson
                        I've owned both tilting table and tilting head saws. My current saw is an EX-21 (pre-Chinese made version) with the tilting head. I have to say that for beveled cuts, I much prefer the EX over my previous tilting table saws (Craftsman and Dewalt). I think a lot of it is the rack & pinion angle...

                        Just a random annoyance . . . . Anyone get frustrated by the Harbor Freight ads that say no exclusions, then you see the details and see "for items under $20", or worse yet, in super small print, "Can not be used for: Atlas, Bauer, Central Machinery, CoverPro, Hercules, Predator, compressors,...

                        And no annoying dust collection holes, for little pieces to catch on, right?

                        Since tilt arm style saws are my personal favorite . . . I can criticize it right? I hate the freaking dust collection mechanism on my King, and prefer the table on the older Green EX that didn't have that....

                        I've been creating patterns for about 6 years, but I still haven't had any Easter patterns. And here is my first one - Easter Bunny. I plan to make more this year.
