Question about Dewalt DW746X 10" woodworker's table saw with rai

Open Question

DeWalt DW744X type 1 - fence will not stay parallel to blade. I have adjusted the two bolts to make it parallel - but as soon as I lock it down and use it goes wide in the far side of the blade. Will replacing parts on the gear/gear box on the far side fix the issue? Love the saw but not being parallel makes it unusable.

Either the blade or the guard is out of alignment. You will have to check and find out which one is the culprit.

SOURCE: 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.

All electric motors are set up in the same way. (Please refer to the little schematic I have drawn below.) Different models are wired slightly different and please note that your particular saw may only be able to go in one direction. Also some fields have 4 wires instead of 2, and if this is your case please ignore the rest of this post and bring your saw to a professional to be looked at. If your saw is going the wrong way your motor may be damaged and will need to be replaced or at least tested with the proper equipment. With that said, there should be 2 wires coming from your field. Wires "B" and "C" respectively. One of these should go to your switch, and the other should go to one of the brushes. Wires "A" and "D" are coming from your brushes and as noted above one should be going to the field. Let's assume that wire "A" is directly hooked up to the white wire of the cord. And let's also assume the the black is hooked up to "C" of the field. "B" and "D" should be linked in this setup. In order to reverse the polarity of the motor you would switch the field brush setup. One field wire and brush wire should always be connected to complete the circuit. By changing the "B"-"D" connection to instead be a "C"-"D" connection with "A" still going to the neutral "white" wire and now the "B" wire going to the switch, you have effectively changed the polarity of the motor. ****Please note that some of these saws have an electric brake and should not be rewired in this manner**** Again if your saw just started going the wrong way one day, you should get it looked at by a professional repairer. There may be more problems that have caused this to happen,

How do i square the table to the fence on a dewalt table saw?


Normally we adjust the rip fence so that it toes out 0.10 mm over the lenghth of the rip fence. Some models have to have the trunion shimmed or the table removed/adjusted to achieve this. The toe out ensures no binding but doesn't effect the measuring. Note. adjusting the trunion is a large job.

How do you adjust the rip fence on the Dewalt 744 type 1 table saw


there are 2 bolts on the backside that you need to loosen and move the fence to the blade to align it properly, after aligning tighten the bolts and I always recheck to ensure that it didn't move, there are instructions in the owners manual and if you don't have one you can go to dewaltservicenet.com and download one for the tool. Let me know if you need more assistance

Blade is slightly closer to fence in back causing the material to kick back.


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.

On my Dewalt table saw when I lock the rack and pinion part its fine on the front of the saw but its way out of square on the other side. But the fence is fine is there an adjustment so it stays square?


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

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

Blade isn't cutting well. It smokes and the wood rides up as it is cutting. The saw is 14 yrs old but blade has only been used a few times. I think it needs alignment. Can I do that myself?


You should be able to adjust the fence but every model is different so I probably cannot tell you exactly how. My Biesemeyer fence has 2 set screws on front guide of the fence for parallel adjustment to the blade (this fence is a single piece fence). I had a Sears contractor saw that had 2 bolts on the top of the fence that needed to be loosened, the fence moved parallel, and the bolts tightened again (the Sears fence was a bolt together fence). Whatever fence you have I would think the adjustment would be on the front part of the fence. I would remove the fence (the fence only, not the guides) from your table saw and take a close look at it for any adjustment screws (the Biesemeyer set screws are somewhat hidden) . If the fence bolts together you will probably need to loosen the bolts to do the alignment. There is a quick check you can make to verify the problem is the fence not being parallel to the blade because your problem could also be caused by a bent saw blade arbor (the saw blade would wobble as it turns)

ø Lock your fence down and measure from the front of the blade to the fence and from the back of the blade to the fence. These measurements should be within 1/32” (ideally is should be zero).
ø If the fence passes the test above, you can see if your saw blade shaft is bent by sliding the fence very near the blade, locking the fence down, and rotation the blade by hand (unplug the saw first). If the blade rubs on the fence as it rotates then you could have a bent arbor, a bad arbor bearing, or a bent blade.

Blade Alignment?


By splitter I take it you mean fence. If this is correct there could be a couple things that I would look for. UNPLUG saw and check the blade at 0 for being inline, make sure flanges are on correctly and finally what I would look at is the adjustable table bringing the fence toward the blade. Loosen lever and move it to the first slot where the guide would go align the front of fence and lock lever then check the back of the fence to make sure it is straight. If not you would have to adjust the back rail to align it. What I made to do this is 2 of the rails from the guide slide into the slot and on the back of the saw are 2 10MM bolts that need to be loosened and the rear slide moved one way or the other after loosening the lever push the fence tight to whatever you use as a guide and snug the bolts move the fence away and then bring back rechecking alignment sometimes you might have to try a couple times but it should work. Tighten the bolts and again recheck If not let me know and I will find a manual for you to download

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
