If you look on the back of the saw where the pivot is, there should be a bolt on either side that should adjust how much bevel there is . As for a 90 degree angle, there should be a locking pin or stop to keep it from leaning out of square. Be sure that it is accepting the pin properly and that it is clean. Not sure if there is an adjustment on the sliding saw, but i know there wasn't on my dual compound mitre saw

How do I adjust it so the blade stays on?


one of the big wheels has an adjustment on the center pivot that tilts that wheel to keep the band running true
turn that adjustment while turning the band by hand and you will see the band run back onto the wheel ( or off it if you go the wrong way)

How do I get the blade on my new Black and Decker 15 amp table saw to be at 90 degrees? I have the angle device at the zero mark and the blade is still at a slight angle. Is there any adjustment tha


I had a similar problem with my Ryobi table saw. I got out my square to establish true vertical, then tapped the motor housing lightly with a rubber mallet until the blade was at true vertical.

(sometime a hammer is the appropriate tool.....)

Metabo baas 317 precison band saw keeps throwing the saw blade off.Tried various adjustments as per the manual.......no success


Here we go. I looked online for this saw, and it looks to me like most others. First, be sure you blade is not stretched from over-tightening or worn out. Either of those can cause your problem. Then, take your blade off and visually align the wheels , or even figure out a way to measure the wheels to see if they align. Then install the blade and turn it by hand to see if it is tracking true. You may need to do this for a while. One it turns true by hand (make the adjustments of the top wheel to cause it to be straight), then you will need to set the guides to support the blade in it's correct position. The should be guides above and below the table, probably both behind the blade and to the sides of the blade. As many as 6 adjustments, on some machines.
Usually the guides should barely touch the blade to hold it true.
Be blessed.

Is there a way to adjust the set pin to get a true 90 degree bevel?


set the blade at the built in 90 degree lock, now use a square and adjust the fence (usually two bolts visible on top of the fence) to the blade at 90 degrees....there are some shops which offer this service under a "tune-up" or calibration.

Adjust angle of band saw blade to align with fence


Typically the fence is attached to the table and the table can be angled to create a bevel.

Using a square, align the table so it's square to the blade. Assuming your fence is square to the table vertically, you're good.

With most bandsaws I have worked with, there is a positive stop (typically just a bolt - the head acts as the stop) underneath the table so when you tilt the table, you can return it to flat without having to re-square everything up every time. Once you've got things square, make sure to adjust the positive stop too.

Be aware you may still have to compensate for drift with your fence, though.

Will not cut 45 miter cuts perfect


Possible but I would think not likely
Try this
Put a new blade on
Set a magnet on the table or fence with phillips screw driver stuck to it
Slide the point of the screw driver up to within 1/16" from the blade just above the teeth
Run the unplugged saw by hand and watch for any side to side movement of the blade
Can you move the blade up and down or side to side?
If everything seems normal the plug the saw in and run it again watching the screwdriver
Please be careful don't allow the screw driver to contact the blade at high speed you will create a bullet

How do I align the saw blade with the saw table I have a 10 inch Delta Contractor's saw that is about 10 years old. The blade is not straignt with the miter slot. andyc@bergeralllied.com


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.

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 do not know how to change the blade on a dewalt


I'm not familiar with that particular band saw but I have had a few different band saws and they all pretty much work the same.

Unplug the saw and remove the top and bottom wheel guards.

Look behind the top wheel and you should see a large bolt standing vertically it may have a knob on it or it may not, look on the bolt to see if it has stop nuts if so loosen them then turn this knob so as to lower the wheel enough so you can remove the old blade.

Clean the rubber tires on both wheels and install the band with the teeth facing down.

Now the tricky part, adjust the top wheel so that it is firmly against the band and turn the wheel slowly by hand (be sure the saw is unplugged) if the band "walks" one way or another, you will have to find the set screw or set screws that adjust the tilt of the wheel, adjust these until the band runs true on the wheel. When it does, tighten the wheel a litte more and turn again slowly by hand repeat this until the band runs true and it is very tight on the wheel, Put the guards back on before you turn on the power. You should be good to go.
