Replacing a Centerline Encoder
The centerline encoder is the counter that tracks the position of the vertical movement.
Warning: Before entering the saw make sure you have engaged the emergency stop with the key and take it with you as well. Always lock out, tag out the machine during maintenance in accordance with all local and/or company policies.
The centerline encoder is located either on the end of the shaft for the (older) Joyce actuator style or on the end of the shaft of the gearbox (newer style) behind a gray cover (shown below).
Remove the two screws holding the encoder in place and unplug the wire.
Loosen the set screw (set screw location is circled in red). And the encoder will slide off.
