10” Craftsman Table Saw arbor shaft problem
As I was using my saw a vibration/rattling noise started up and seemed to get worse after just a few short cross cuts. I checked to see if the blade was lose, checked the motor, all pulleys, and belt. All seem to be good. I then went to take my blade off, (with my saw you have to secure the blade to loosen the nut) the arbor nut would not loosen and the arbor shaft would spin with very little effort. After securing the shaft I was able to take the nut off but now you can not apply any torque to the nut without the shaft spinning. What could be the problem?
