My table saw fence has gotten very difficult to move. So much so that the knob broke. I'm not sure what is causing this or how to fix it. Anyone know where I can see how to get the assembly apart and clean it out or other issues that may be causing the problem. 

 

Thanks

I lubricate all my moving fence parts with turbine oil. Given how free mine is it's likely you may have racked your fence causing it to bind with friction. But given how simple the travel design actually is I have a hard time seeing how it could be that bad.

Thanks for all the responses. I took the track off and cleaned it out. What I found on the inside of the front track is that the locking mechanism was remaining on the track while it was disengaged causing it to bind up. Anyways, thanks again.
