Question about Ryobi 10 in. Portable Table Saw with Stand RTS20
I bought a new Ryobi table saw (Ryobi 10 in. Portable Table Saw with stand RTS20) this evening and before I could even make my first test cut something went wrong with the mechanism that lowers and raises the blade. It "feels" to me that the handwheel is no longer engaging the bolt which engages the mechanism. Yes, I know that I could just box the tool up and head back to Home Depot and swap it out for another one, but I would rather just solve the issue myself and start ripping if the fix is quick and easy. I hope someone has advice, other than the obvious course of action I've already stated.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

new Ryobi have a spindle lock button, it is unobtrusive and you may miss it
If yours does not, secondhand etc, a screwdriver in the blade teeth between the upper and lower guards provides a locking bar enough to undo the arbor bolt

cut freehand. A bandsaw blade will always run off to one side or the other, even using a fence.
The rip fence is intended for re-sawing only, and very thin strips

SOURCE: cut is always crooked
It took me a very long time to adjust my ryobi bandsaw properly. The guides above and below need to be straight, and the guides just barely not touching. The blade should be tight, and make a musical note somewhere above middle c when you pluck it.

Hello, I think that the problem you are having is called "drift" . each blade will cut different than the last. The way I was taught to cure this goes as follows.
-take fence off off table(or just move over)
-get a good square piece of material appx. 1x3 and mark a straight line about 1/2" from edge the full length of the board.
-with out the fence cut the board along the line appx. 1/2 the length.
-shut off saw WITH board in it.
-use a angle finder along the edge of the board, set angle finder
-remove board and put the fence back on.
-now slide the angle finder up to the fence, you should see that the angle is different than the fence (this is the DRIFT ), adjust the fence to the angle finder( I know that the smaller saws usalley don't have this adjustment ) you will have to find a way i.e. shim etc.
This is a very common problem but once you get the idea it is a easy fix
Remember: A guy taught me and I taught you, pass it along thats what we do.LOL
Hope it helped.
