    There is a positive stop at 45 (and other angles). When I set it at the positive stop for 45, make 8 cuts to form the 4 sides of a frame, I find ou that clearly the 45 stop does not cut a 45 degree angle. Each joint has a gap of significant and very visable amount as it runs from the ooutside to the inside of the joint.

Are you having problems with the miter or bevel ? Are you asking how to physically move the saw to that degree angle?

I did a 45 degree bevel cut with my Dewalt portable table saw and now I can not get the blade back to a 90 degree position, any thoughts?


Did you check to see if the saw has a locking nut on the front of the bevel gauge handle? Its possible you just locked it into position and forgot to unlock.

I bought the 10" compound


I have been in the same situation in the past, with a mastercraft miter saw to a point of using playing cards to get that nice tight miter joint. placing the cards between the fence and the piece i was trying to miter.Rioby makes mastercraft all thought they are a good saw they have their limits to the precisions of their cuts. good for fences,decks, stuctural framing ect, were a degree two is not a big thing,but when making furniture or interior trim work or picture frames or hobby craft you need to buy a good pro saw like a dewalt or bosh sliding compoud miter saw they may cost more **** their worth the money they are very precise and will last a life time if taken care of .It will be worth the money when you get that perfect cut every time you use it,it will put the JOY and fun back in your projects and not to mention qualaty in your master pieces.

How to adjust saw to cut a perfect 90 degree and 45 degree cut


I would go to Makitausa.com and download a manual. what you have aproblem with is either a bent fence or just misalignment. simply all you need is a good square, put the head at 0 degree and check to see if out, making sure not to put square on the teeth of the blade, if it is out there are 4 13mm bolts that hold fence in place loosen them and starting from the left side put it at the exact dead nut. snug the bolt and then check the right side. I usually check them 3 times for accuracy when you are confident snug all the bolts and recheck. Let me know if you need more assistance

The cut is not square on 45degree miter


Hello. First of all adjust your saw on straight cuts so that it is spot on 90 degrees. Then go to the 45 and test it again. Being off a tiny amount at 90 degrees is compounded when you go to 45 degrees.

I cannot get a perfect 45 degree angle with my Makita circular saw. Is it me or the saw??


When using the gauge on your saw it is off on the 45 degree cut? If so you might have to use a tri Square every time you want to cut a 45. Sometimes the lock gauge for the 45 angle may be off some. When you put a tri square on the board you cut it is not a true 45 even though the saw says it is?
