Normally we adjust the rip fence so that it toes out 0.10 mm over the lenghth of the rip fence. Some models have to have the trunion shimmed or the table removed/adjusted to achieve this. The toe out ensures no binding but doesn't effect the measuring. Note. adjusting the trunion is a large job.

SOURCE: On my Dewalt table saw

If I read this right the fence is not square with the blade and if so on the backside of the tool you will find 2 hex head bolts that need loosened and the fence run up against the blade, push/pull fence until it is square front to back and snug up the bolts, run the fence away and try again. I always check a couple times, when sure it is square tighten bolts and this should take care of your problem. Let me know if you need more assistance and if I have helped you would you please vote accordingly. Thank you

SOURCE: How do you adjust the rip fence on the Dewalt 744

there are 2 bolts on the backside that you need to loosen and move the fence to the blade to align it properly, after aligning tighten the bolts and I always recheck to ensure that it didn't move, there are instructions in the owners manual and if you don't have one you can go to dewaltservicenet.com and download one for the tool. Let me know if you need more assistance

SOURCE: Blade Alignment?

ok yep your blade is out of alignment with the fence. It is closer to the fence at the rear than the front. You need to make the modification or adjustment to your fence, if it allows that, and then worry about the miter slots later (which should be adjusted miter slot to blade, not miter slot to fence). You might be able to adjust the miter slot to blade by moving the actual table and then securing witht he table mount bolts. Check your manual for how to align the fence.

You do want to fix that though as it can be potentially dangerous and result in kickback of the workpiece which is a rather SCARY thing, and very dangerous.

Blade is slightly closer to fence in back causing the material to kick back.


Hi Ken,
Sounds like you need to to adjust your fence.I use the blade from a combination square.Place the steel blade next to the saw blade(between the carbide teeth).Next loosen the fence lock,loosen the two hex bolts on the rear pinion assembly so that the fence can move side to side.Move the fence up to the combo blade and adjust the fence and lock the fence lock.Check for blade and fence for true.Tighten the hex bolts at the rear pinion bearing assembly. Thank You for choosing FixYa.com.

On my Dewalt table saw when I lock the rack and pinion part its fine on the front of the saw but its way out of square on the other side. But the fence is fine is there an adjustment so it stays square?

The blade is not sqare to the front of the table, with the fence next to the blade there is a 1/8 inch differance. how do i adjust the blade or the motor/shaft


you don't adjust anything but the fence if I understand the question correctly. You are using the fence for a straight cut and there is a gap, if so on the back of the saw UNPLUG SAW FIRST you will find a schematic about hhow to adjust the fence but all you have to do is loosen the 2 bolts where the arrows are I believe they are 10MM and lift the guard out of the way then gently run the fence next to the blade and "push" the fence square to the blade and tighten the bolts, usually it takes a couple times (I always recheck it). Now if the blade set at 0 degrees is not square you reset the angle from the front. Let me know if you need more help

When I try to cut a 45 it seems to be cutting a little more than a 45. how do I adjust it?


Make sure the blade is 90 deg vertical to the saw table. Make sure the indicator is set approprately. Raise the blade just enough to clear the table/base. Place a swanson speed square against the fence and blade. Make sure the indicator is at 90 degrees. Here you might want to tilt the square and check that the complete blade is flush against the sqaure as high up as possible. Lay the square back flat on the table and pull the blade toward you as much as possible. The teeth on the blade should ride against the square extented completely out.

Now set the square against the fence with the 45 degree angle coming away from the table and set the blade on the 45 deg mark on the insicator scale.
The blade should touch the square all the way out fully extented.

Or just experiment with some scrap and check

User manual for adjusting your saw here.
When you set it up, make sure you check for square to the table, square to the fence, and check square for toe-in or at a 45 deg. angle across the blade from the corner where fence meets table, like you would check a radial arm saw. (hold a framing square with one leg against line of fence/table and other leg against blade and inclined 45 to both table and fence. Make sure all three are dead square.
I never found any way to compensate for the play in the blade itself. It seems like the manufacturing tolerances are a little too loose.

You may need a heavier plated blade. You may simply need a different saw. Those Dewalts are great workhorses, and I love the design, but it's my experience that when you're trying to miter hardwoods of any substantial size there's a little bit of drift in the cut as the blade comes through the wood.
You can try cutting at a slower rate.
I've found that makitas are a little more solid through the cut, though I don't like the general ergonomics as much...
Kind of a pain, isn't it?
Well, good luck.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

The fence in not sitting square to the table. If you place a square against the fence and the table there is a gap of about 2 mm and I don't how to fix it.


Does your saw have an adjustable/extension table. If so look on the backside where the other gear is located on a DeWalt there are 2 bolts holding this in place, what I do is loosen them up and with the square move the fence till it squares up and then snug the bolts, move the fence away and bring it back again to see if it repeats to square, if so tighten up, if not try again, if you don't have this gear give me the brand and model number and I will look into it further

How to set fence square to blade.dw705


First if you need an owners manual go to Dewaltservicenet.com and in the middle of the page at the bottom type in your model number and get a copy. OK for setting the fence square, first unplug the tool and make sure that the blade isi good. Get an accurate square. Set the table at 0 or 90 degree for a straight cut depending on your scale. Make sure the blade is straight up and down on the bevel before starting. What you want to do is loosen up the 4 bolts on the back side of the fence enough so you can move the fence with some resistance. Set your square on the left side of the blade and pull or push the fence till it is square with the blade, snug up one of the bolts and then put the square on the right side and check for square, you might have to move it some if square snug up one bolt and recheck the left side again, if ok tighten both bolts and recheck the right side and repeat if OK. I sometimes recheck 3 or 4 times just to make sure. Also I should have mentioned about putting a straight edge across the length of the fence to make sure that it is not bent in some way thereby not allowing you to square the blade. Let me know if you need any more help

Dewalt 10" table saw, when ripping jambs @ back of guide?


Without knowing the full problem, (theheader is cut off) I would ask are you using the fence to help you rip? and when does the board jamb? If it jambs toward the back of the saw the guide might not be square with the blade. I would unplug it and put something that you know is square on the front edge of the blade away from the teeth and adjust the fence so that it is just snub then lock down the table and move the square to the back of saw, it should move with no resistance. If it does then the fence is out. What you would need to do if this is the case is align the fence to the blade, on the back of the saw are 2 10MM bolts that you need to loosen put your square at the front again and lock down the handle with that done move the square to the back and tap the rail on the back side to move tighter or looser and then lock down the bolts. What I do is move the fence away and then back and start all over again to make sure nothing shifted. It sounds more involved than it is. Let me know if this cures your problem
