But is still very hard the turn handle. Not sure how hard this should be. And help will be appreciated.
It is probably dust..
I am no expert ,,,,so allow me to just ask a question,,,, when the table moves up and down ,,,,,it slides in a track on the ends,,, could they be full of dust ,,or even rust?
my dad has a planer that adjust the table with a chain when ya turn the crank handle, constant cleaning is a good thing.
