Rigid table saw blade frozen - Saws
Well with only this info it could be a lot of or many failures to lock it down . First is it belt driven or direct shaft drive.if it is belt driven ,
(possible more not likely ) then unplug power supply .locate belt and follow to bearing journal and pulley on the blade end . pull from this end in the direction the teeth are facing(forward or fryont )
. Shouldn't take much effort.the idea is to roll any foreign object
clear , or free of smaller areas that would bind or jam any part of the drive train . While your there check belt
TIP: usually,almost any type of motor that has a belt for the drive train, has built in thermal overloads .. Like a fuse when it gets hot ,
the solder pot melts thus opening the circuit . They reset themselves In a time vs. Temperatures. Depending on the melt point of pot ( some in mins , some in hours ) . For yours it takes 15
mins or so to allow solder to cool and the link has made continuity thus closing the circuit. If belt slips around pully but motor shaft turns , something or some object has gotten between frame and drive ,or the bearings are seized up on the blade end . That's why we roll the belt at the blade end istead of turning shaft at motor end . The only other thing is if it's a direct shaft drive , you still will be looking for a jam piece , however possibly a locked rotor in side motor ,, meaning the out put (Armature ) shaft extending from motor to blade has seized up internally .Again check bearings if direct shaft .,,also more and more power tools are coming with a brake on them . As soon as the user has taken the power of
of tool the brake will engage and stop any rotating parts .
