Useful Info About Miter Saw Bearing Replacement
The grinding noise of a miter saw
A miter saw is a vital tool in most workshops as it helps carpenters and woodwork experts cut wood quickly and easily. They are designed to be robust and give the desired level of service. It can be upsetting and uncomfortable when a saw starts making noise.
It may be difficult to get to the bottom of the issue as a novice. It is normal for a saw to make noise while in use, but grinding noise may indicate an issue with your brushes or your armature. The worn out brushes are prone to chipping, and the chip may become wedged, thus causing the grinding noise, due to the continuous use of your miter saw.
Ensuring that your power tool is in good shape and increases its lifespan is dependent on regular maintenance and replacement of worn out components. You will have to remove the carbon brush holders by pulling them up. The chuck and the spindle assembly are needed to remove them.
The motor is put out of the field. To raise the motor of your saw, you will need to unhook the electrical connection. Listen for the sound of the bearing and spin it to see if it is in good shape.
Remove the damaged bearing. You need to install a separator on a bench on the bearing. The bench vice should be opened to the exact point where the separator makes contact.
The Bearing Puller in the DeWALT Miters
The DeWALT miter saws are designed with the armature bearings close to the fans. The space between the bearing and the fan is not enough for a bearing puller to get a good grip. The fan and the bearing are too close to each other to pull at the same time.
Protecting a Saw with Different Gauges
You might have more protection for your saw if it's a model that's made by the same company. You want to make sure that the area around the gauge is free of saw dust. Move the gauge through its full rotation about a dozen times after applying your dry lubricant.
Your gauge should be moving and free of obstructions. Most models of the saw can be taken off easily if the problem persists. The cover is glue together by some models, but many are screwed together.
A new blade for kerf cutting
Try a different blade if it is. It could be as simple as a warped saw blade. Dust or flaws in the arbors can angle the blade even if you tighten it.
If the dial indicator didn't detect any problems when you were rotating the blade, you should set it up so you can see if it wobbles. That will show the problems with the sliding bars. The 12" blades can have a lot of deflection, particularly through harder materials, so it's not certain what type of precision you need.
