SOURCE: Craftsman radial arm saw will

All of the adjustment locks should be tight. Check the arm and saw motor cradle for looseness by trying to push/pull the blade, cradle, and arm in various directions. A bevel cut indicates that the motor/cradle is tilting. An angle cut is controlled by the rotation of the arm. Check for looseness of the cradle bearings that allow the cradle/motor to roll along the arm. If you don't have the owner's manual for this saw, go to: www.searspartsdirect.com and enter the complete model number minus the decimal point--this will take you to a series of drawings that detail every replaceable component of the saw. The owners manual should be available there. There is a rather involved series of adjustments involved to make this saw work correctly. Hope this helps!

Saw is not cutting true / will not cut a straight line ?


Check blade is on properly. Remove blade and clean area where mounts to shaft. Make sure proper washers are in place. If blade is bent or wobbles replace. If blade is dull replace. Be sure you're getting enough water to saw. Don't force the tile through, let the saw do the work. Nothing helps any kind of saw more than a nice new blade.

Blade wonders on straight cut


When doing any straight cut use a straight edged piece of something to run the jig saw along, using as a guide, this will usually keep it all straight, sometimes it can be a loose blade, or a bent shaft?

Not cutting in straight line


Normally blade overheating. Improper blade or too few teeth for material, teeth not sharp and/or offset enough for proper width of cut. Teeth must cut wider than blade. Inexpensive blades tend to do this quickly. Other possibility: Bad bearing, check for play with saw unplugged. Blade should have little wobble. Other possibility: Saw body cracked/damaged(allowing shaft to skew) or very cheap saw unable to handle material

Blade misalignment


The 1590, like several Bosch jigsaws, has a selector switch to choose the type of cutting action. You have to choose the appropriate cutting action, either straight or oscillating, to accommodate the material you cut and the blade you cut with. For instance, if using a very slender blade for clean curved cuts in wood, a slight oscillating motion ( setting II or III) reduces friction on the blade. 
If you choose the straight cutting action you get maximum accuracy, but drastically increase the friction because the blade is held firmly to the roller bearing.  A slender blade can handle that for brief periods, (say... less than thirty seconds) in soft, thin wood with a straight cut. In hard woods or engineered wood products ( plywood, MDF etc.) the thin blade will heat up and bend. 
You can reduce friction by choosing an oscillating cutting motion, or you can use a larger, sturdier blade. The "Aggressor" blades do not cut as smoothly as the "clean" blades, but they cut faster and are stronger. To cut thick wood ( 4x4 ) or a long cut in engineered material, that is the blade I use. Select number III or number II for 'type-of-cut' and use a bigger blade. See if that stops the "bucking."
Good luck!

Use a pencil and straight edge to mark the cutting line on the wood. Place the wood on the saw table and line the mark up with the saw. Place the mark on the right side of the blade to ensure proper cutting. Plug the saw in and put on your safety goggles. Support the wood on the work surface with your left hand, placing it far from the saw blade. Place your right hand on the handle, and push the trigger to start the saw. Move the saw blade down onto the wood. Put constant pressure on the handle to slowly move the blade through the wood. Release the trigger and raise the blade once the cut is complete. Make diagonal cuts in the same manner, by marking the wood and lining the mark up just to the right of the saw blade. Continue as you would for a straight cut. Remove the wood from the saw. Unplug the chop saw and dust the sawdust off. Remove the dust bag from the back and empty it. Vacuum any remaining dust off of the saw.
