  • Problem with TS3650 Tilt Mech

    The threaded tilt rod on my TS3650 has slipped out of the tilt nut. Is there any chance that I can remove the rod to put it back in? So far I don't see a way to get the rod to budge.

    Anyone else ever have this issue?

    Strangely similar to a problem reported by another member. Strange only in that they should happen within a few days of each other.

    Download the exploded diagram for the TS3650 and study the assembly, see pages 18 & 19. If you can't find it you can download a copy here:

    "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
    John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

      I was able to pop it back in by loosening the trunnion bolts while it was on its side. The only issue I have now is my blade seems to be sitting really close to left-hand side (maybe a 16th of an inch) and won't tilt past about 15 degrees before touching the side of the table insert. The manual says to correct this issue to move front trunnion - however it isn't clear exactly how you move the trunion. I've got a few ideas, but can anyone tell me for sure?
