SOURCE: I have a Tradesman 10" table saw Model BT2502W.

Bearings are made to be replaced and are a standard size. Either present the shaft size, the recess it fits into size and the width and any bearing dealer will supply you the required item. When you do buy a bearing ask for a 2RS bearing. That means that it has rubber seals on both side of the bearing. Or take the sample with you, even if it is in pieces. Also, the bearing number is usually stamped on the side of the outer race, something like 6201 or 6201 2RS.
Bearings can be difficult to remove, especially if they have fallen apart and the balls have come out. To get the inner race off a shaft, the easiest way is to grind the race on one spot almost to the shaft and then give it a whack with a hammer and it should crack in the ground face. The outer race can be levered out of the housing or if it is too tight, drill two 1/8" holes through the housing opposite each other so that you can knock the race out with a pin punch. Refitting the bearing (replace both of you can) - slide the new bearing onto the shaft after giving it a light rub with a fine abrasive material and giving it a light smear of thin oil, tap it down until it bottoms on its flange, when both bearings are on the shaft, press it into the housing and assemble the motor again - that's it.

How do I adjust the worm gear on my table saw?


I believe that that model of Powermatic has a lock for the blade angle that also extends and retracts the casters for moving the saw. You may have unlock or change the handle position to allow for blade angle adjustment. You can get a manual or information at the Powermatic website to show you how to change the settings on the saw. Hope that helps.

There should be some screws on the bottom side of the fence that allow you to make adjustments. Loosen then slightly then set the fence to 90 degrees & then tighten them.

I have a powermatic 66 table saw. I removed the motor, to move the saw. when i reinstalled the motor, the blade has moved 5/16'' towards the fence.


Check to make sure the arbor set screw is not loose. The bearings may have shifted when you moved it. I recently rebuilt an old 66. Repositioning the bearings and tightening the set screw could be all it needs.

I am trying to find out how old my powermatic 66 table saw is. serial no is 97661400


On the Powermatic 66's the first two numbers are the year in which it was made, so yours was made in 1997. The second set of two numbers is the model. The last numbers I"m unsure of but its my understanding that they represent the manufactured number, so yours was the 1,400th saw made for that year.
