The Blade Arbor is held to the bottom of the table with mounting screws and stop/adjusting screws. Loosen the mounting screw and adjust the stop screws to make Blade true with miter slot.

SOURCE: 10'' delta table saw manual

you might try Dewaltservicenet.com but you will need the model number and you might have to put the dash in between to get it to list the model. Let me know if you need more assistance and if you do I would also need this information.

SOURCE: adjusting the saw blade for exactly 90 degrees on

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.

SOURCE: Have a Skil #3305-01 table saw. Need to set blade

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.

The owner of Inline Industries (he invented the PALS product that lets you get a precision alignment on a contractor saw) has a video that shows how to add grease fittings that will make blade raising, lowering and tilting very easy. Check him out. He sent me the video when I bought the PALS.

I have a delta 34-444 table saw, is it a right or left tilt, or how do i find out?


Left-tilt, right-tilt refers to the direction the top of the blade can be tilted when it is not straight up and down. There will be an indicator on the front of the saw, normally pointing to zero. When you adjust the blade away from zero, if it tilts to the left, it is a left-tilt saw.

I am trying to get the saw blade off. Is it reverse threads? Thanks, Jerome


Yes is is reverse threads. If you put a block of wood in front of the saw blade and wedge it against the table, you can put your wrench on the nut and pull towards you assuming you are in the front of the saw where the switch is.

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.

I have a 1/16" tilt


Your question is not very clear. Here are several answers.
By tilt you may be speaking of bevel adjustment 0 - 45 Some saws have hidden under the table or obvious positive bevel stops or screws in the table top for 90 and 45 degree. Adjust them.
You may have a bent or warped blade causing the "tilt."
Thin blades may be stiffened with blade stabilizing washers $14
With the saw unplugged remove the blade. Grab the threaded arbor shaft and pull it up and down. Next push the shaft straight in and out. If there is wiggle the bearings are worn and may need replacing.

Blade is not parallel to the channel. How do I adjust it?


Instruction manual for your saw is here. See Page 21. You need to adjust your blade alignment to the miter slots. As mentioned in the manual, there are a couple bolts that hold the rear trunnion in place. Loosen them up, shift the motor a bit (not an easy task). Keep checking blade alignment until you've got it down.

There are after market trunnion alignment kits for table saws that make this a bit easier. Check out PALS (Precision Alignment & Locking System). For $20 or so, it makes the process MUCH MUCH easier.

Need to adjust Miter gauge for Delta tablesaw 36-977. The 90 degree stop is off


1) Before setting the Miter gauge, check that the blade is straight (parallel) with the slide grooves. Lock a board in the miter gauge and place against the front of the blade, and then the back of the blade. Is the distance EXACTLY the same (it won't matter if the miter gauge isn't straight and square). If not, you'll need to loosen the table and rotate the blade holder to square it up.
2) Now Cut a board in half the flip one side over and place the cut back together. If it isn't straight, the resulting board will have a "dog-leg".
3) Adjust the miter-set-screw until the cuts on the trial board yield a board that comes out straight (or use a Framing square to check).
