Question

HF 5" Double Cut Saw - Blade Guard Spring Attachment


I recently acquired a used Harbor Freight 5" Double Cut Saw - disassembled.

The saw seems to work (motor wise, anyway) - but I'm having some trouble trying to figure out how to reattach the spring for the clear blade guard.
The manual is no help (to me) whatsoever.

Was wondering if anyone who has one of these tools might be able to snap a picture of the spring attachment for the blade guard
- so that I can see where/how to reattach it onto my tool.





Thanks !!!


TOM

HF 5" Double Cut Saw - Blade Guard Spring Attachment


I couldn't get a decent picture with my crappy camera....guess I shouldn't be surprised, lol.

I'll try this though:

In the stationary part of the blade guard (the black part) there is a little punched out tab in line with the body of the tool. One end attaches there.

Now in the moving part of the blade guard (the clear part) there is a hole in the.....collar, for lack of a better term. If you rotate the guard all the way hidden until it can't turn any more, you can see it on the bottom of the tool. Other end of the spring goes in there.

It looks like the spring just runs around the inside of the stationary section.

If that don't help, I'll try again with the picture.
