    The locking device tend to slip. I did add a clamp to the locking device. Not slipping anymore. The fence however is not solid and therefore push over to 90 degrees + whenever I plain stock. I was thinking of replacing the fence with a jig. Just not sure how to go about this. I am sure everyone using the woodstar planer / thickener experience the same problem. Just impossible to plane stock square with the current fence. It is thin and wobbly.

    Advice will be appreciated.

I had the same problem, i once solved buy clamping a peice of square timber to the fixed bed with a recess on the underside to keep it clear from the cutters and adjustable bed. also if u dont want to do this i still use the origanal fence but i changed the locking bolt for a bolt i can tighten with an allen key as it would lock secure and not move, to strengthen the fence i added a piece of marine ply for sturdyness.

Most jointers can be set beyond 90 degrees. This allows boards to be beveled at angles over 90. There should be a locking handle or lever to hold it at the angle you want. If you want 90 degrees, adjust it to a framing square and lock it.

Can this saw be adjusted if it cuts out of square? And if so, how.


Hello, yes this saw can be adjusted.
To calibrate the table, use a framing square up against the rear fence and see how the blade tracks. To adjust this: loosen the bolts holding the rear fence down and move the fence until it is square with the blade track and tighten.
To adjust the bevel: use a speed square to check for 90deg and 45deg on the blade. Using the 13mm bolts found at the pivot point on the trunnion you can adjust the 90 and 45 degree angles.

Is there a way to adjust the set pin to get a true 90 degree bevel?


set the blade at the built in 90 degree lock, now use a square and adjust the fence (usually two bolts visible on top of the fence) to the blade at 90 degrees....there are some shops which offer this service under a "tune-up" or calibration.

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

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

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

Older Delta 10'' Miter Saw Zero setting is out by 1/2 degree.


Undid the RH fence-bolt in the table behind the fence and tapped the end of the fence forward to make it perpendicular to the blade. Tighten bolt. When you look down on the two fence bolt heads, one is easy to rotate with a socket wrench, the LH bolt head would be very, very difficult to move. Undo the RH bolt to swing the fence angle WRT the blade.

Fence gets a slight bow in it when tightened


look at the far end of the fence for a nut that you can loosen slightly when in the unclamped position. It sounds as if you are clamping it so tight that you are bowing the fence

How to set fence square to blade.dw705


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

Planer or Jointer


If I had to pick, I would get the planer first. That way you can at least get your lumber pretty darn close to flat and parallel. Furthermore you can resize your lumber when necessary. But that’s just my opinion.
