TS 75 Panther blade "stuck"
« on: February 26, 2017, 03:36 PM »
Okay, had a client who needed me to trim the bottom of a barn door about 3/4". Upon completing the cut I hit a nail and the TS75 blade got stuck in the housing.  Would not plunge down.  After some checking I see that the arbor on the blade got loose.  I tightened it up and gave it a go.  Finished the cut but didn't "feel" right.  Thoughts?

Pull the blade, see if it bent a tooth to the plate bent.

I'd also pull the cover to see if anything is stuck in the housing.

It sounds like you may have bent the blade. I'd replace it with something else and see if it feels better.
