Delta mitre saw 36-585
I have used this saw for several years. I was blowing out all the sawdust with a blower this morning and when I attempted to pull out the lock down knob to raise the blade it wouldn't budge.
I had to go get a punch to bang it out. Also can't push it back in unless I hammer it (easily). The saw was in the back of my pickup truck overnight and the temp went down to 40 degrees. Would a slight touch with a torch loosen it? I did apply wd-40 to the pin where I could. I can hold the blade down with a stretch cord but would like to fix the lock down pin. Any ideas?
Thanks, pll8on (Phil)
