    My pastor for my church called me monday for some help with his tablesaw. I am not very mechanically enhighned (sp?) but I told him I'd take a look... he said he needs to replace the worm gear, or something to do with the worm gear. Is this hard to do? I'm going there tomorrow at 3:30, so if anyone can give me any suggestions that would be great. I dont know anything about the tablesaw, so thats not much help /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    Yep, find out the brand if its a major one you can find a forum that just like this one that will tell you all you need to know. The reason I can tear into the saw is it only cost 400 to replace and It dosent get me to work. Ive actually fabbed parts Like shims and motor mounts for my saw that I learned online.
