SOURCE: Table Saw Blade Won't Cut Straight

Inside the saw, on the end of the trunnion is a stop that is adjustable to zero the saw in to exactly 90 degrees. Either there is sawdust or something accumulated there or it needs to be adjusted. You say you cleaned it out, So you'll need to unplug it an have a look up in there. See how there's a geared piece of steel that moves when you crank the saw over to 45 degrees. Usually there's a bolt or stud with a locking nut on it, either on the trunnion itself or the lower surface of the table top. You need to break the nut loose and screw the bolt in or out to adjust, then crank the saw over to hit it, check for square with a known square, crank it all the way out of the way and readjust, etc. Until you get it right. Make sure to tighten that lock nut when you're done.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

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.

I did a 45 degree bevel cut with my Dewalt portable table saw and now I can not get the blade back to a 90 degree position, any thoughts?


Did you check to see if the saw has a locking nut on the front of the bevel gauge handle? Its possible you just locked it into position and forgot to unlock.

The blade is able to be set to different angles by the handle under the front edge of the table. There is a lock handle to keep the angle set correctly. Loosen the lock handle, press a square (90 degree tool) against the flat of the blade - not the teeth - then lock the blade in place.

10 inch lest tilt Unisaw will not tilt to complete verticle --only goes to 88.5.


There is an adjustment under the table top. It usually is a bolt with a lock nut that allows you to adjust the table to a predetermined angle every time. You can adjust the amount that the table will go by unlocking the lock nut and then turning the bolt the correct direction allowing the table to come to a full 90 degrees. Once you have the table a 90 degrees lock the bolt down with the lock nut. This will aloow you to change the tilt of the table to something other than 90 degrees and then come back to the 90 degrees by turning the adjusting wheel until it bottoms out against the locked doen adjusting bolt.

Blade does not square up on c10fsh miter saw


To square up a mite saw blade, you need to eeither move the table or adjust it to be square if it is out in the mitre angle, or if it is out in the bevel angle the whole saw head needs to be adjusted, and this is done via the bevel adjustment at the back of the saw. There may be a bevel stop bolt to return the saw back to 90 degrees if moved to a different bevel angle. Usually the blade itself is not adjusted bu either the saw table or the bevel angle of the saw head itself to correct these issues.

Adjusting the saw blade for exactly 90 degrees on an old craftsman 10 " radial saw


If the saw is adjustable for angle we usually use an engineers square against the blade to get it upright and then you may find an adjustable stop or stops somewhere so you can set the position ready for the next time you need to set it.

The blade is not straight up and down I need to know how to adjust it. ****


With the unit unplugged, find the knob which controls the angle.

One of the turn knobs raises and lowers the blade. The other is tied to the degree labled pointer. usually you'll have to pull it out to engage the actual adjustment part. Crank it till the pointer is stopped at the top range where it says 90. To verify, i usually use a 90 degree right angle to make sure it's true 90 degrees.

I have a 10" ryobi table saw and my bevel will not return to the 0 degree position. I can change the angle, but I can not get the blade to sit straight up and down. I can push it almost to zero with much...


I have a Ryobi folding table saw and I learned how to adjust the bevel through trial and error. There are two allen key machine set screws in the top of the table. One for 90 and the other for 45. I backed the 90 screw off past 90 and than set the blade exactly at 90. Now I screwed the allen screw in to touch the blade. It seemed to work for me. Mind you it will have to be checked often to insure a perfect cut. Good luck.
