B & D Miter Saw #1703 Frozen Blade
Have had this saw since new for over 12+ years. After 5 minutes "rest" between 2x4 cuts, there is a constant piercing squeal and no blade rotation. No lodged wood pieces under canopy.
Costs 25-30$ for assesment. Lost the manual, but a replacement is on the way from the co..
Would you personally spend time "tinkering"...ie. take apart, clean all crevices. oil? Or,would you suggest following the sales for a replacement? I was unable to find a troubleshooting guide for miter saw problems.
This saw is used for rough construction. Our 'furniture' miter saw is a DeWalt-more expensive that what we need for animal barn construction.
Any suggestions for a quality-not over $200 10" replacement?
