Question about Saws

Meausrement are wrong when I use the guide

I just bought a used table saw from Craigs List and the guide isnt set correctly. I can't seem to figure out how to get it right. I've taken the part off that has the tape measure on it but it doesnt seem to line up with any of the boly holes to be accurate. Is there a secret to it, or a picture in a manual I can look at?

    Hey guys



    Thanks for the comments.



    I ended up finding a manual online and taking the guides apart and setting them where they are supposed to be. It measures perfectly now.



    No wonder the guy was selling it. Too bad he wasn't honest about it when I bought it..ohh well.



    Now that its fixed, I really got a good deal

Usually the clear window with the line on it is adjustable. Use a tape measure to set the fence and the move the indicator to the correct mark on the scale.

I have a crftsman table saw mdl # 137228210 I purchased the saw used. I need a rip fence . the guides are allready there. any help would be appreciated


There's an exploded parts drawing and parts list at the link below. This may be useful to see what the fence is supposed to look like. It's not listed as an assembly, just a surprisingly long list of parts that would cost a fortune - if they were all available. Maybe you can find one on ebay. Barring that, you can always just clamp a board to the table to rip with - the hard part is getting the makeshift fence to be parallel to the blade. To do that you can use an adjustable square and measure from a miter slot in the table to get a quick and straight setup. Good luck.

I'm a wife with a do-it-yourself knack. I recently purchased a Ryobi 10 in. BTS211 table saw. I find the manual complicated as far as how to actually use the device. Can you recommend where I can get...


I am a retired contractor.
I have a shop with a 10" table saw.
And I have opinions about safe operation.

For safety, turn saw off when making adjustments.

1) Raise blade:
There is a handle you turn to raise the blade.
If you are cutting 1/2" plywood, then set your blade at 3/4" or a bit more.
Keep blade low and away from hands.
Keep hands high and away from blade.

For 1-1/2" thick 2x4, I usually set the saw at 1" and run the board through, and then flip the board over and run it through again, taking 2 passes to make really thick cuts.

2) Blade angle
There is a second handle you turn to set blade at an angle up to 45 degrees
Angle cannot be set if saw blade is fully raised >> lower blade to half way or less and experiment.
Angle cuts are difficult if wood is not perfectly flat and square, or too long or too short (boy is that helpful ... but cutting angles takes some experimentation)

3) Table Guide
You stand behind power saw to operate
The saw table guide is on left side of blade and clamps across the table
The guide markings show inches >>> these are usually approximate
To set guide for accuracy, measure distance from blade to saw guide, and then clamp guide down.

4) Push sticks push sticks push sticks and other safety stuff
Let me emphasize safety first last and always
A table saw will chop your fingers off in a blink
On the plus side, I hear it doesn't hurt. But OMG.
There is a very strong human instinct to reach in with your hand when working on stuff
Train your mind >> if the saw is running, do not lean or reach into the saw
If a board is stuck >>> turn off the saw and wait for full stop
If you wear baggy clothes of a loose shirt, the saw will grab you and pull you in too fast for you to react
Keep your clothes tight and your arms bare

Always use push sticks or push boards::
673c22b.jpg
Notice the saw blade is set low
Two push sticks are used to assist when cutting short board > one stick holds down the board ahead of blade, the other stick is pushing board through saw.
Keep your hands away from the blade no matter what.
The person stands behind and to the side of the board being cut.
The cut wood is supported by a catch table (in this case there are rollers)

Where to stand
Obviously you stand behind the saw to cut wood, and sometimes with long pieces, you can move in front and pull them through, and sometimes with large plywood you stand kinda back and to the side.

Why not stand directly behind a saw? Because saws throw stuff back.
When 'ripping' a board lengthwise as shown in photo above, if the saw catches the board just right, it will throw it backwards like a spear.

If a board 'binds' the saw causing saw blade to stop, then turn off saw, back up the board, and cut again.

Crosscut guide
The saw comes with a T-shaped guide that fits into a groove.
This is a 'push stick' >>> you use it to cross cut a board, and it lets you stand to the side of the saw blade so things wont flip back on you
When using the cross cut guide, remove the table guide that clamps across the saw, or push the table guide WAY back so pieces don't get caught in a bind and the blade flips up the piece and hits you in the face
Remember, the saw throws everything backwards

The saw is strong and fast, and you are best when traveling slow and without rush around your strong friend.

Have a Skil #3305-01 table saw. Need to set blade


The jam nut is on the end of the bolt you are adjusting, directly underneath the table. The easiest way to get to it is to place the saw on it's left side, and move the saw blade to the maximum bevel position (45 degrees). You can then reach up -directly underneath the location of the bolt on top - and access the jam nut.

To be clear - the bolt you are tightening is about 2 inches long with the jam nut on the end with the purpose of tightening the bolt into place once you have established the correct adjusted position.

And yes, the directions for this step were terrible.

The PIN no longer works and I need to reset it. Was purchased off Craigs list a few months ago and I do not know the persons name I purchased it from to go to the secure location to make it work again


As I said, my son-in-law bought the Garmin c550 off Craigs list. I do not want to pay for an answer so I will give it back to my son-in-law and tell him I could not figure out why the PIN doesn't work any longer. Thanks for asking, Brandy

CLICK HERE for blowout diagrams that details part numbers and assembly.

There is no "repair guide" available for most small power equipment, as there are relatively few parts to assemble, and easily figured out.

Is this a 10" contractor's saw?
I can't seem to locate that number, but did turn up a 34-348. If that's close, you may have a look at the parts list and diagram at http://www.dewaltservicenet.com/Products/DocumentView.aspx?productid=66707&typeId=14646&documentId=33737
I hope this will prove to be of some help!
