First, check to make sure the blade itself is a flat plane, by measuring the distance from a fixed point to various teeth as the blade rotates. (Usually a magnetic base dial caliper is used to do this.)
Once you know the blade is flat and true, you can use it to set up the saw...
This is a tricky process and requires a bit of finesse. You need to just loosen the bolts that hold the table top to the workings of the saw beneath, and shift the saw relative to the miter slot so the blade is perfectly parallel. You'll probably have to crank it over to 45% to get to the bolts, then crank it back to check the adjustment, so make sure it changes angles easily first, by squirting some oil in there.
When it get it adjusted correctly, tighten the bolts, and check the working of the raise/lower and angle adjustments. You will probably have to reset the stops as well.
I don't see a manual for your saw here, but you might have a look at the other manuals that are there. There may be a saw close enough to yours for the manual to be of some use. See this one, for an example of typical instructions related to your adjustment. (You click on the publication to open it.)
Good luck. It's a bit of work, but worth it. It will make the miter slot functional, and make adjusting the fence a whole lot more accurate.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

10 inch table saw blade not square with table


Sounds like the bolts that hold the motor assembly on the table may be loose allowing the blade assembly to move. Look underneath the table and clean out all the dirt and loosen all the hold down bolts and realign the blade and tighten back up.

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.

How do I adjust the blade so that is parallel to the miter slot on my 10" table saw that is about 10 years old?


I fond some model numbers for table saws and I would recommend going to managemyhome.com with your model number and you can download a manual for this tool with detailed instructions on how to align so it is cutting square. I used the model number 11329884 just to see and I was looking at page 55

I have a craftsman table saw model 137.248830 and the blade is out of square with the miter. How do I adjust it?


You should have 4 bolts holding the trunnion on to the table, just loosen these bolts up a little, tap the trunnion with a hammer, the right way, put a straightedge on the blade fully extended and measure across the table to a dado slot, front and rear, tap it till it is exact, tighten bolts and check again. This should do it. You can check your fence the same way. hope this helps.

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.

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.

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.
