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.

Replacing 5007 baseplate


I hope we're talking about the same nut, is it the one on the lever to lock the cutting depth? If so, it's held in place by a lock plate that you remove by taking out the small pan head screw next to the nut. After you take the lock plate off the nut should come off easily.

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 fence may be getting in the way of the arm when you adjust the trunion assembly fully to one side or the other for bevel cutting. Adjusting the fence all the way out away from the trunion assy. should allow full 45deg adjustment. If this is not the case, it could be--even though its only slightly used--that there is sawdust built up enough in the housing to keep the arm from fully adjusting.

While the latch COULD indeed be faulty, it generally should always be tightened/locked so that the trunion assy. is fimly "locked" before cutting as this is designed to keep the saw from shifting mid cut, causing binding, uneven cuts, broken blades, seized bearings, etc.

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?

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