SOURCE: Need Manual / Info For Old Delta Chop Saw / Cold Saw

The machine should have a data plate somewhere. This may give blade RPM or motor rpm, then its out witrh the calculator to work out the blade speed. The crucial number however is not the rpm but the peripheral speed in feet or meters per minute.
Used to work with a power tool manufacturer, a standard woodcutting chop saw will safely cut alloy. Two things, watch the blade type, and watch out for metal swarf entering the motor and switchgear !.

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!

SOURCE: Blade Alignment?

ok yep your blade is out of alignment with the fence. It is closer to the fence at the rear than the front. You need to make the modification or adjustment to your fence, if it allows that, and then worry about the miter slots later (which should be adjusted miter slot to blade, not miter slot to fence). You might be able to adjust the miter slot to blade by moving the actual table and then securing witht he table mount bolts. Check your manual for how to align the fence.

You do want to fix that though as it can be potentially dangerous and result in kickback of the workpiece which is a rather SCARY thing, and very dangerous.

Can this saw be adjusted if it cuts out of square? And if so, how.


Hello, yes this saw can be adjusted.
To calibrate the table, use a framing square up against the rear fence and see how the blade tracks. To adjust this: loosen the bolts holding the rear fence down and move the fence until it is square with the blade track and tighten.
To adjust the bevel: use a speed square to check for 90deg and 45deg on the blade. Using the 13mm bolts found at the pivot point on the trunnion you can adjust the 90 and 45 degree angles.

Macallister chop saw blade problem, the motor runs but when half way through cutting wood the blade stops ?


I'm not sure if you have a chop saw or circular saw. Either way, it sounds like the nut and washer are not tight enough to hold the blade. If you have a circular saw clockwise will tighten the nut and washer onto the blade and hold it in place. Most chop saws are a left hand thread and then you would turn the nut counter clockwise to hold the blade tighter. The blade wobbles because it is not tight.

How do I make adjustments on my ridged r4512 table saw?


The carriage under the table is held to the underside of the table with several bolts or screws. Loosen those screws.
Raise the blade and clamp a stiff metal straight edge to the side of the blade. Use a carbide blade and clamp the straight edge to the sides of the teeth. Move the carriage around until the straight edge is parallel with the miter gauge slots, then tighten the bolts.

How to adjust the blade at exact 90 degre


Use a carpenter square, place the square on the table top with the blade up right, adjust the tilt of the table saw blade until it is exactly parallel to the blade of the carpenter square. Check the blade in several places as the table saw blade is sometimes warped. Try to adjust until a happy median is obtained.

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.

To adjust the bevel, (blade angle), loosen the black lever at the back of the unit, tilt the blade housing using the handle (this may require a fair bit of force) until the arrow on the scale is at 45 degrees then tighten the black lever.

I have a Craftsman 10" table saw model number: 137.248830. The saw doesn't make square cuts, it is more of a problem when using the miter. I have followed the alignment procedure so that the right...


I assume that your alignment procedure is about adjusting your miter gage. But you should first verify if the blade is parallel to the miter slot (the slot the miter gage slides in). This is adjustable underneath the saw, and sometimes comes crooked from the factory or comes loose later on. To check if the blade is parallel to the miter slot you can do this.....1. unplug the saw. 2. Raise the blade as far as it will go. 3. Clamp a piece of wood to your miter gage so that it just touches the blade as close to the front of the saw as possible. 4. Use a marker and mark that spot on the blade. 5. Now slide the miter toward the back of the saw, and rotate the blade by hand so that your piece of wood hits the same spot as where you checked in the front. You can see a large misalignment by eye. But you can get a little precise by using a piece of paper between the wood and the blade as a feeler gage. Or better yet, use a drop indicator instead of the piece of wood and you can measure the difference. If this isn't as close to parallel as you are able to measure it, you need to turn the saw over and find the bolts that attach the whole assembly under there to the table top. Once you have this in alignment, you should be able to set your miter to be square against any good square. If you don't have a high quality square, you can go to a tool store (Sears or whoever) with your miter gage in hand, and set it to be square against their most expensive square. If the square is square, and the blade is parallel to the slot and it still won't cut square you either have a bad blade or there is too much play in the saw's arbor. Try to wiggle the blade side-to-side - any wiggle at all is too much.
