HOW TO! Chop Saw Lock Down pin. Store Postion Release. DeWalt

ah to make a video of this on the floor

because there's actually a video of this

on the internet people don't know how to

do it this is what have we gotten into

in society I couldn't have done this

before and I'll show you what I'm

talking about a minute because it was

frozen now it's not frozen anymore

because this is aluminum that steel is

pin so it freezes up what we're showing

is that that lockdown pin this is how

the thing comes in a box this chop saw

or if you want to store it like I have

to on a shelf I have to lock it down or

else it doesn't fit in the condo land

girl excuse me I had this perch

basically what you do is push down on

the top put a little pressure and you

can pull your PIN out look it goes up

that's so often you leave it just like

that it doesn't have a spring I could

have swore I had to spring a knob on it

but then I'm looking at other models

that are newer than this we're about the

same you know stylist I changed a number

on that same saw same apparatus it does

fully free floats in there well the deal

is this things from like 2005 over time

again get corrosion in there or it's

this is a humid climate this it ruined


singing out rust everywhere man Ross

down here hold down a little clip thing

rust everywhere but I cleaned it mostly

up the lunar rust it was all peeling

over here I scraped it all down sand and

it pained me not the best you say over

there but good enough but that is the

lockdown pin and I could have swore that

thing had a knob on it over here or it

had a spring-loaded apparatus like

dishes it's spring-loaded but it's not

now it's old was beat-up I had to drive

her back and forth see if that's frozen

on you you have to drive it back and

forth at least 25 times when it's in the

down position

you're able to actually get it it can

get onto it

this slide is spit over here with a long

punch you can catch the end of it and

drive it or you can pry it over here

with something and keep on prying it

this way like a end of a hammer that

might fit or get a chisel or it on the

edge and it's let it's all beat up and

then drive it back this way and drive it

back this way and drive it back this way

oil the crap out of it fluid film PB

Blaster whatever you got and I'll free

that thing up I think it's not gonna

freeze up now for a while it's a lot of

goop on it but that is that is the pin

maybe it's ideal to to drill a little

tiny hole in there to for lubrication

2005 saw though this thing made some

stuff back in the day and now it's just

rotting here but that is the walk pin on

your chop saw people don't know what

that is that's ridiculous I knew what it

was I just didn't think that well I knew

something was wrong with it and every

time I use this thing I had to go hammer

it out I said this thing you should

slide and sure enough it's supposed to

slide mine was this rotted rusted

I got aluminum corrosion well another

thing I did I chucked this in the drill

when it was an up position because don't

do it one in seven down position unless

you have you take the pressure off I

chucked it on the drill and then I kept

on spinning it this way and that way I

was spinning and I kept going in and out

in and out in that so in and out spin

motion with a lot of penetrating oil

it got rid of all that corrosion in

there just eat it up because it gets

steel aluminum what's gonna wear first

do you want them so that is how I fixed

it video over 2005 it's a date code

right there
