Blade Adjustment 10 inch Dayton commercial table saw: the blade is not square to the track guides. ie: the in-feed (front) is almost a 1/4 inch closer to the right guide:: and the out-feed (back) is closer to the left guide. the blade is not bent and the spindle is not bent. I do not have a manual so at this time I have not tried to make any adjustments. This was a low useage machine when I recived it

Blade is not square to table


There are manuals for the Skil 3400 available online.
Centering the blade to the table simply requires a screwdriver, a good square, and some patience. Basically you're loosening up the points that hold it vertically and horizontally (front to back), checking them against the table with your square, and then tightening them up when everything looks nice and ninety degrees.

It's not the best saw in the world, but with a little work, I've been able to get it to make 90 degree cuts and perfect miters with a miter sled and a cross-cut sled I built using aluminum (I think?) T-shaped replacement runners that would normally be used for the worthless miter guide that comes with it.

10 inch table saw blade not square with table


Sounds like the bolts that hold the motor assembly on the table may be loose allowing the blade assembly to move. Look underneath the table and clean out all the dirt and loosen all the hold down bolts and realign the blade and tighten back up.

How to adjust the blade at exact 90 degre


Use a carpenter square, place the square on the table top with the blade up right, adjust the tilt of the table saw blade until it is exactly parallel to the blade of the carpenter square. Check the blade in several places as the table saw blade is sometimes warped. Try to adjust until a happy median is obtained.

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

I'm a wife with a do-it-yourself knack. I recently purchased a Ryobi 10 in. BTS211 table saw. I find the manual complicated as far as how to actually use the device. Can you recommend where I can get...


I am a retired contractor.
I have a shop with a 10" table saw.
And I have opinions about safe operation.

For safety, turn saw off when making adjustments.

1) Raise blade:
There is a handle you turn to raise the blade.
If you are cutting 1/2" plywood, then set your blade at 3/4" or a bit more.
Keep blade low and away from hands.
Keep hands high and away from blade.

For 1-1/2" thick 2x4, I usually set the saw at 1" and run the board through, and then flip the board over and run it through again, taking 2 passes to make really thick cuts.

2) Blade angle
There is a second handle you turn to set blade at an angle up to 45 degrees
Angle cannot be set if saw blade is fully raised >> lower blade to half way or less and experiment.
Angle cuts are difficult if wood is not perfectly flat and square, or too long or too short (boy is that helpful ... but cutting angles takes some experimentation)

3) Table Guide
You stand behind power saw to operate
The saw table guide is on left side of blade and clamps across the table
The guide markings show inches >>> these are usually approximate
To set guide for accuracy, measure distance from blade to saw guide, and then clamp guide down.

4) Push sticks push sticks push sticks and other safety stuff
Let me emphasize safety first last and always
A table saw will chop your fingers off in a blink
On the plus side, I hear it doesn't hurt. But OMG.
There is a very strong human instinct to reach in with your hand when working on stuff
Train your mind >> if the saw is running, do not lean or reach into the saw
If a board is stuck >>> turn off the saw and wait for full stop
If you wear baggy clothes of a loose shirt, the saw will grab you and pull you in too fast for you to react
Keep your clothes tight and your arms bare

Always use push sticks or push boards::
673c22b.jpg
Notice the saw blade is set low
Two push sticks are used to assist when cutting short board > one stick holds down the board ahead of blade, the other stick is pushing board through saw.
Keep your hands away from the blade no matter what.
The person stands behind and to the side of the board being cut.
The cut wood is supported by a catch table (in this case there are rollers)

Where to stand
Obviously you stand behind the saw to cut wood, and sometimes with long pieces, you can move in front and pull them through, and sometimes with large plywood you stand kinda back and to the side.

Why not stand directly behind a saw? Because saws throw stuff back.
When 'ripping' a board lengthwise as shown in photo above, if the saw catches the board just right, it will throw it backwards like a spear.

If a board 'binds' the saw causing saw blade to stop, then turn off saw, back up the board, and cut again.

Crosscut guide
The saw comes with a T-shaped guide that fits into a groove.
This is a 'push stick' >>> you use it to cross cut a board, and it lets you stand to the side of the saw blade so things wont flip back on you
When using the cross cut guide, remove the table guide that clamps across the saw, or push the table guide WAY back so pieces don't get caught in a bind and the blade flips up the piece and hits you in the face
Remember, the saw throws everything backwards

The saw is strong and fast, and you are best when traveling slow and without rush around your strong friend.

My fence is square to the table. How do I set the blade so it is square to the table? There is a 1\8" difference in the distance between the front and back of the blade in relation to the groove the miter...


I'm betting that the table isn't square to the blade. My Cabinet Makers Table Saw does the same thing - the top plate (the big heavy cast iron plate that weighs about 50 pounds) sits on top of the sheet metal box that houses the motor and motor lift. This cast iron plate is held onto the sheet metal box by 3 screws (usually).

Loosen the 3 screws and the cast iron plate can move around on top of the sheet metal box (the holes for the screws are large enough to allow 1/8 inch movement). Looking down from the top, you can rotate the cast iron plate clockwise and it will move the front of the blade closer to the fence and the back of the blade away from the fence. Counter-clockwise does the opposite.

For the best adjustment, use a dial indicator mounted to something that slides in the track of the table top. Position the dial indicator agains the blade and slide it back and forth in the track of the table top. This will accurately set the table top to the blad (so they are parallel within 0.0005 inches).

Then check the accuracy of your fence (sounds like this is good). Don't forget to check the alignment of your riving knife/guard & splitter to the blade (if it's off you can't feed wood because it will hit the splitter).

Delta saw model no. 28-245 saws a taper form top of wood to bottom why does it not saw a stander line Delta saw model no. 28-245 s/n 91B1335


Sounds like your table is tilted. Put a small square on the table against the blade, then adj the table to it. If that is not it, then the blade guides are off up and down, back off all the guides, wheels, turn the blade by hand, get it tracking in the center of the tire, then bring the bearings up the blade, don't push it , just touch it, then bring in the guides, again, make sure it doesn't push it, the guides stop it from going off, it should track by itself. Hope this helps.

How do I align the saw blade with the saw table I have a 10 inch Delta Contractor's saw that is about 10 years old. The blade is not straignt with the miter slot. andyc@bergeralllied.com


The Blade Arbor is held to the bottom of the table with mounting screws and stop/adjusting screws. Loosen the mounting screw and adjust the stop screws to make Blade true with miter slot.

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.

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
