I have a delta 10 inch contractors saw. When I raise the blade it squeaks .I have cleaned the gears with varsol and and also with lacquer thinner..it is much better but not perfect. Any suggestions?
Kerosene followed by some Marvel Mystery Oil. Regular light application should keep it gunk free and moving smoothly.The oil has a slight solvent property to it to clean as well.
Thanks ..who sells Marvel Mystery Oil?
I have seen Marvel Mystery Oil in auto parts stores, and also in automotive areas at Wal Mart. It is often sold as a "fix all repair oil", if I remember correctly, similar to items that fix transmissions or quiets valves, that sort of thing. Actually I once kept adding small amounts to a compressor that was knocking badly, dang thing ran for months beyond that point. It didn't fix anything, but it ran much smoother. Interesting stuff.
Use a dry lubricant. Paste wax or some of the graphite sprays. Anything that stays wet will just attract dust and make it cake onto the trunnion.
I solved my squealing saw elevation by flipping the table saw over and lubricating the elevating screw bushing area. The trunnions were not the problem.
