Unplug saw, crank the blade up two inches or more, loosen the locking lever or bolt, hold a square aganist the flat part of the blade between the teeth. Set blade square to the table and lock in place. Recheck, plug in saw away.
Are you wanting to square the blade to the rip fence, to the miter fence or does the blade show runout?
To square the rip fence to the blade, lay a combination square or engineer's square along the blade with the short leg against the closest end of the fence and even with the near end of the blade. Slide the square along the blade so that the short leg is even with the far end of the blade. Loosen the lock knob and move the far end of the fence until it touches the leg of the square. Tighten the lock knob. Recheck and adjust the fence until it is perfectly square to the blade.
Adjust the miter fence to the blade in a similar fashion except that the short leg of the square will lay against the miter fence. Adjust until the long leg is aligned with the blade. The instructions for these adjustments are in the owner's manual. You can download a copy at this website: http://www.makita.com/en-us/Modules/Tools/ToolSupport.aspx?ID=604

If you have blade runout, remove it from the saw and lay it flat. Check for warping and if warped, replace it.
Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,
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.
Hi there, I take the blade out of my tri square and lay it between the fence and the blade and let it touch the blade. Then I set the fence tight with the tri square blade.With the blade against the fence you can position the saw blade just where you need it.
I always add this for your information. If this is not the solution that you are looking for please re post because when we pick a question to answer FixYa takes it out of the question queue. Thank You for choosing FixYa.com.
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.
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
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 assume that your alignment procedure is about adjusting your miter gage. But you should first verify if the blade is parallel to the miter slot (the slot the miter gage slides in). This is adjustable underneath the saw, and sometimes comes crooked from the factory or comes loose later on. To check if the blade is parallel to the miter slot you can do this.....1. unplug the saw. 2. Raise the blade as far as it will go. 3. Clamp a piece of wood to your miter gage so that it just touches the blade as close to the front of the saw as possible. 4. Use a marker and mark that spot on the blade. 5. Now slide the miter toward the back of the saw, and rotate the blade by hand so that your piece of wood hits the same spot as where you checked in the front. You can see a large misalignment by eye. But you can get a little precise by using a piece of paper between the wood and the blade as a feeler gage. Or better yet, use a drop indicator instead of the piece of wood and you can measure the difference. If this isn't as close to parallel as you are able to measure it, you need to turn the saw over and find the bolts that attach the whole assembly under there to the table top. Once you have this in alignment, you should be able to set your miter to be square against any good square. If you don't have a high quality square, you can go to a tool store (Sears or whoever) with your miter gage in hand, and set it to be square against their most expensive square. If the square is square, and the blade is parallel to the slot and it still won't cut square you either have a bad blade or there is too much play in the saw's arbor. Try to wiggle the blade side-to-side - any wiggle at all is too much.
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.
