  • Fence roller pin...

    Anyone else have the little pin that holds the roller on the end of the fence fall out? I popped it back in and it seems to be OK, but I didn't really know where the piece came from at first. It doesn't look like there's anything really holding it in, other than friction.

    Anyone else? Thanks.

    I posed the same question.
    I guess this is common and some have used various adhesives on the end to hold it in.
    I have not done that yet. Just paying attention to it.

      It just stays in place most of the time. It has dropped out a few times for a few, but for most, it just stays put. Those who have had problems use a small amount of glue/adhesive to make it stay. Don't let any get on the shaft where the roller is.

        Thanks all. I'll just keep checking it.

          Mine fell out. I pushed it back in, but haven't done much to make sure it stays there.

            I had the same problem. I put a drop of Locktite (Blue) on the very tip if the pin (Roybi calls it a "dowl" , see the parts list posted elsewhere) and since then, no troulbe at all and this was at least 9 months ago. Just don't use too much or the Red version, it will gum eveything up.

              Talk about reviving an old thread!

              Anyway, my pin easily falls out if the fence is taken off and tilted just the right way. It has probably happened at least a dozen times over the life of my saw. I always marvel at my luck each time I find the pin. It happened today, so I thought I would do a site search and see how others have solved the problem. I just tried some locktite, although as loose as the pin is when inserted, I'm not sure if that will work for me. We'll see!
