Default Odds of this fixing the Mitre Saw wobble

Hi all and hope you are enjoying your Memorial Day weekend!

While cutting some wedges out of a 2x8, I had a chunk of wood get stuck in the saw blades teeth........ yeah a big bang with a sudden stop! The end result is a wobble in the blade at a low RPM. The wobble straightens out at a high RPM. Hoping for a cheap fix, I replaced the blade with a brand new one.... the wobble is still there.

Attached is a link to a diagram of the Motor Assembly http://www.searspartsdirect.com/part...0028632&blt=06. The first part is the cutter shaft assembly #2BX4. Do you believe that if the cutter shaft assembly is replaced that the saw won't have a wobble? I need your advice because I don't want to be stuck with a part I don't need. If I need to replace the Armature Assembly which is the 4th part #2AKT, I'll be putting that money towards a new Mitre Saw as its price is over half the cost of the saw.

Thanks in advance

Hi Marco

I would suggest you drop it off at one of the many server centers and let them check it out for you, they have the equipment to do that right..you don't need them to repair it for you but they can tell you for sure what part needs to be replace.. and then go from that point..sale it on CL stating it has a wobble in the blade ,some don't care if they use it for construction jobs..

I agree with Bj, take it in, left them look at it. If by chance that you decide to make the repair yourself. Providing you end up replacing the shaft, replace the bearings as well. You're there, no point having them go out on you within a next few uses. Doubtful you'll need to replace the armature assembly. Look at this way, money well spent on preventive maintenance.
