Blade on Hitachi C12FCH mitre saw has begun to cut into left side of blade slot on turn table. Angle cuts (90,45,etc) still accurate. How do I realign blade run to avoid hitting turntable?


Realign fence to blade, must be 90 degrees, using a level for straight edge bring other fence co planed with aligned fence. . You saw will only cut as accurate as you set it up., I spent over 2 hours on my 12 inch to ensure that it was vertical, exactly 90 degrees and exactly 45 degree both left and right. I used engineer squares.

Table saw blade alignment


Are you referring to the table top or rip fence alignment? The blade itself is not aligned. We adjust the table to parallel with blade and the rip fence should toe away from blade 0.01mm over the length of the rip fence to prevent binding.

My dad's old craftman table saw will not cut straight. I put a new carbide tipped blade in to try to solve the problem with no luck. the wood is cut narrower in the center and it won't stay tight against...


Your problem could be one or more of... 1- Check to see that the motor mounts are secure and the motor is not moving around. 2- Check the shaft that holds the blade for the same problem if the blade is not directly mounted to the motor. If there is any "give" in the above two ways the blade could be held in place, corrections must be made to secure the blade so that it does not "wander" during the cutting procedure. 3- Be sure the fence you are using to guide your wood is set as parallel as possible to the blade so it does not cause the wood to follow another line once the wood being cut goes beyond the cutting blade. There is most likely an alignment procedure you can run through.

Adjust angle of band saw blade to align with fence


Typically the fence is attached to the table and the table can be angled to create a bevel.

Using a square, align the table so it's square to the blade. Assuming your fence is square to the table vertically, you're good.

With most bandsaws I have worked with, there is a positive stop (typically just a bolt - the head acts as the stop) underneath the table so when you tilt the table, you can return it to flat without having to re-square everything up every time. Once you've got things square, make sure to adjust the positive stop too.

Be aware you may still have to compensate for drift with your fence, though.

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.

When ripping a board the width becomes narrower toward the end of the board, I have checked the fence and it is aligned correctly. the splitter is also aligned, replaced the blade and it helped did not...


Several possibilities come to mind:

1) Check the alignment of the arbor -- it's possible the arbor or arbor nut are not completely true. Detailed instructions are here:
http://woodgears.ca/saw_arbor/index.html

2) Check the alignment of the blade to the miter slots. If you aligned only the fence to the miter slots, it's possible the fence may not be aligned with the blade if the blade is out of alignment.

3) You said you checked the alignment of the fence and splitter, but these are the most common causes for the problem you're having. You might want to re-check the alignment of both, using a different method. Try these methods:

Be methodical and follow the directions for alignment closely. The extra attention you put into aligning your saw will pay you back many times over in clean, accurate cuts.
