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. Let me know if you need any more help

My craftsman miter saw cuts but it is not a straight cut.


Here's an old dude trick that might help.
Safety first! UNPLUG THE SAW.
- Take a framing square and set it against the fence. It should be flush with the fence on both sides of the blade. If not, slide the square to one side and pull the blade down into full cut position, then slide the square against the blade and fence to check for square. If square, slacken the bolts on the other half of the fence and align it with the correct side.
- A bit of messing about should have it lined up just fine.
- If it is off vertically, there should be some alignment possible.
Patience and safety.
You'll get it.

HAVE OLD MAKITA 2708 TABLE SAW HOW DO I SQUARE THE BLADE


Hi rjames16,

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

Copy and paste this entire address into your browser and a page will open with 2 Adobe documents. One is for the owner's manual, the other for the parts breakdown.

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,

Handie Andie

Need to line up the blade with the fence


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.

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

Promblem with Makita 1013 ajusting blade to cut square


Just found your problem, what you need to do it unplug tool and get a good square. Set the blade at 0deg. and then put the square on the left side of the blade to check it. If it is out of square you would need to loosen the fence bolts (13MM) and adjust the fence, snug bolts on the left side and move your square to the right and recheck and then snug the bolts there, I always recheck the fence to ensure it is square and not moved before tightening the bolts fully. If the head is out there are bolts on the pivot that need to be adjusted and again recheck. If you go to Makitausa.com you can download an owners manual with instructions on what to do. Let me know if you still have problems.

When I try to cut a 45 it seems to be cutting a little more than a 45. how do I adjust it?


Make sure the blade is 90 deg vertical to the saw table. Make sure the indicator is set approprately. Raise the blade just enough to clear the table/base. Place a swanson speed square against the fence and blade. Make sure the indicator is at 90 degrees. Here you might want to tilt the square and check that the complete blade is flush against the sqaure as high up as possible. Lay the square back flat on the table and pull the blade toward you as much as possible. The teeth on the blade should ride against the square extented completely out.

Now set the square against the fence with the 45 degree angle coming away from the table and set the blade on the 45 deg mark on the insicator scale.
The blade should touch the square all the way out fully extented.

Or just experiment with some scrap and check

Dw703 beval adjustment


User manual for adjusting your saw here.
When you set it up, make sure you check for square to the table, square to the fence, and check square for toe-in or at a 45 deg. angle across the blade from the corner where fence meets table, like you would check a radial arm saw. (hold a framing square with one leg against line of fence/table and other leg against blade and inclined 45 to both table and fence. Make sure all three are dead square.
I never found any way to compensate for the play in the blade itself. It seems like the manufacturing tolerances are a little too loose.

You may need a heavier plated blade. You may simply need a different saw. Those Dewalts are great workhorses, and I love the design, but it's my experience that when you're trying to miter hardwoods of any substantial size there's a little bit of drift in the cut as the blade comes through the wood.
You can try cutting at a slower rate.
I've found that makitas are a little more solid through the cut, though I don't like the general ergonomics as much...
Kind of a pain, isn't it?
Well, good luck.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
