Depending which model you have, the laser is part of the saw blade stabilizer and is not adjustable beyond removing debris between the stabilizer and the blade.

If the saw is not cutting square to the fence, that is a different adjustment. Rather set of adjustments. The procedure is outlined for your specific saw in it's respective owners manual. You can download here:

SOURCE: The delta universal miter saw stand will not adjust to level posi

Hi, The legs on the stand should have leveling pads on it. at the bottom of each stand legs, there is a hole which the pad goes in. you can adjust the pad by unloosening the top nut. put a level on the saw base and adjust the pad up or down to level your stand.

If this doesn’t work for you, please write back. Thanks,

If you can provide the model number I can do some research. It could be quite a few things that went wrong. If you are comfortable in troubleshooting the tool let me know when you get it back and I will try and help

SOURCE: 12 inch miter saw blade turns slowly and doesn't

There's no debris or wood jammed in the housing around the blade, is there? Try unplugging and removing the blade, to make sure some wood hasn't gotten wedged in there somewhere.
Otherwise, make sure the blade is on tight. If so, there is likely a problem with the motor itself.
If it's still under warranty, I'd contact Ridgid at this link: http://www.ridgid.com/Tools/Support/
Otherwise, they have a tools forum where you might be more likely to find someone who's experienced a similar problem.
Being reconditioned, it sounds suspect to me...
Sorry I couldn't be any more helpful...

SOURCE: My blade gaurd will not automatically rotate out

MS12502 has a solid arm actuation to move the blade guard, this is either bent, broken, unattached or otherwise not functional. sometimes the moving parts get full of sawdust and a major cleaning is all thats needed. generally all woodworking tools should be blown out with air after each use or end of day.

actual model number of your saw would be more helpful.

SOURCE: New Dewalt 745 saw, blade not parallel with Miter slot

Either take it back, or take it apart and make the holes bigger. For that kind of money, you should be able to adjust it dead-on. I thought I had the same problem on an old Craftsman, but I found that I just hadn't loosened things up enough. It's hard to see how much wiggle room you really have under the washers. And if there are aluminum castings involved, there can be a burr raised by the initial setting that it gets stuck on.

My sliding laser miter saw is about 1 degree off on 90 degrees cuts, how do youadjust it?


Adjust the angle by turning the bed of the saw bit by bit until you have a 90 degree cut on a piece of timber measured with a carpenters square. Some saws have an adjustable pointer and you can now adjust it to point to 90 degrees. If the bevel cut is off, the vertical downwards cut, there may be grub screw at the back of the saw which will allow you to make adjustments.
