Delta Miter Saw 36-070c Blade Guard Repair. Photo by Don Tai
I bought this Delta Miter Saw model 36-070c part no. 899880 (0012) used at Goodwill for a pittance, not expecting much, but it has been going strong for the last 5 years. A couple of days ago the blade guard did not retract when the saw goes down to cut. I had to manually move the blade guard up to make a cut, which was annoying. The repair required some accurate and slow drilling with my tiniest drill bit, and 3 tiny screws. Now the blade guard goes up and out of the way when the saw goes down to make the cut.
