This last weekend while ripping 3/4" cedar my TS motor stopped turning the blade. You could hear the motor trying to turn but it seamed like it was binding up. I cleaned the saw and found nothing. The belt seems fine and tries to turn the pulley. I could manually turn the blade but it was real tight and it felt like it a bad bearing in the blade arbor. I had some fine oil for my router bearings and was able to apply some to the outside of the arbor bearing. It started working again but it reminded me of a old dried out wheel bearing. Does this sound right and has anyone else had this problem. I did register the TS when I bought it so I have the limited life time warranty but dang that thing is heavy and I really do not want to drag it into a service center.
No announcement yet.
