Hi Berlitz

The TS75 when new will cut a small amount off the splinterguard (Plastic/rubber edging).

If the saw is cutting any further please check that the saw is sitting correctly on the rail and ensure that the 2 green adjusting cams on the base have been adjusted so that the saw runs freely along the rail but does not move side to side.

If this does not correct the problem contact the dealer who sold you the saw or Festool direct contact details are available on

Hope this helps

Ryobi band saw blade does not cut straight

The side guides should be just off touching the blade (top and bottom) The thrust bearing behind the blade should be just off th blade while it is free running (T & B). The amount of blade exposed to the timber needs to kept to a minimum - like top guide abou 1/4" above timber. Then, correct tension for blade size :)

Hi, my Stihl ts 400 blade runs at idle.I have tried adjusting the idle down as far as I can but it still turns.

seems that ur clutch is sticking.take recoil caseing of and check by turning blade by hand,if you feel the engine turning over,then your clutch drum is sticking,be sure to remove ur spark plug cap! it will be the bearing at the rear of the clutch drum,maybe a little oil and a few turns will help it free itself.hope this helps.

My Bernette 203 will not cut the material or thread. I need to know the correct placement of the cutting knives.

First to see if the top blade is pressing against the lower blade when it goes past to make the cut.
You should be able to push the top blade to the right and have it spring back to the left. Do that to see if there is a small amount of presser on the lower blade.

Next, the cutting part of the top blade should drop just under the lower blade buy about 2 mil.

Also the lower blade should be level with the needle/stitch plate.

Blades also may need sharpened. The top one can be done with just about any sharpening tool but the botom is carbide so you will need a dimond wheel to sharpen it

Hope this helps

My blades are not cutting straight. I have tried new blades,many adjustments and different tensions to no avail. Could it be the bearing behind the blade? Help!

Believe it or not, your little saw will cut a pencil line in half.Take the guides and the bearings out of the way of the blade, turn it by hand till the blade rides in the center of the tire. Make sure it isn't touching any guides. Then tighten up the blade till it twangs. Then bring in the bearings and the guides, just ouch the bearings, do not push the blade at all. The guides should be just behind the teeth and almost touching the blade. This should work perfectly. If it doesn't, then you have something wrong, like a bearing gone out on one of the wheels, or the guide bearings have notches in them. Or the guides are not close enough. You can make guides out of anything, wood, plastic, brass, dowels, anything to guide the blade and stop it from twisting. Remember the blade doesn't move, the work does. Hope this helps.

Ive seen this before. The sawblade that comes with the unit isnt very good. Upgrade to a good carbide blade from craftsman or even a dewalt/vermont american. Also slow your cut down an let the saw do the cutting. Hope this helps

Cut is always crooked. From the top to the bottom of the cut is always crooked. Can not get the saw to cut a 90 degree ( or even close to 90) angle. Even of I adjust the table to be out of square to the...

It sounds as though you may be cutting too quickly. Try decreasing the pressure you are applying to the wood.
You could also try tightening the blade more, until it PINGS when you flick it with your finger.(When it's stationary of course)
I'm assuming your guides are adjusted correctly.

Where should I oil my TS 8000?

Oil directly into the cutter blades from the top, then reverse and repeat.
