My dewalt dw712 cuts out of square. How do I fix it ?

I've been in construction for 49 years. I never use the guide or laser because there are some blades that are thicker than others, especially the blade that comes from the factory. It is one of the thinnest. I always guide the side of the blade with the line while I am cutting.

When sawing against a guide the back of saw moves away from guide can not hold it against it. Also center of blade around arbor gets hot and builds up gum. no looseness in bearing and saw turns free???

hi there
this happens alot with circular saws it usually means that the saw is out of alignment back to front this makes it ******* the tool because your going strait and the tool isnt its fighting it self ******* the motor and whole tool this happens easily setting it down hard throwing it in truck with other tools etc.. the olnly thing you can do to fix this is use solid work bench with tool unplugged lift safety set blade up against the bench then measure front and back from the bench this will tell you if its out of line if so you will need to take it to a tool repair shop to get it fixed
hope i have helped you with your problem thank you have a great day

How to raise and lower saw blade

You raise and lower the table plate, NOT the blade. There is a knob to lossen and tighen the tension on the table plate and you can adjust the blade height by lowering the plate and vice versa.

How do you lower and raise the blade on my d364 circular saw

There are typically two adjustments on the saw, both of which operate with a wingnut type of screw/bolt. The one in the front of the saw adjusts the angle of the blade (typically front right hand side of saw) and the second, to the rear right hand side of the blade, adjusts the depth of cut by moving the bed (flat part of the saw on the bottom) up or down.

I have a DW357 circular saw. It is running backwords???

It shouldn't be for no reason...... Check that the blade is spinning over the top and down into the wood in the line of travel. Is it possible that the blade is on backwards?

Dewalt 10" table saw, when ripping jambs @ back of guide?

Without knowing the full problem, (theheader is cut off) I would ask are you using the fence to help you rip? and when does the board jamb? If it jambs toward the back of the saw the guide might not be square with the blade. I would unplug it and put something that you know is square on the front edge of the blade away from the teeth and adjust the fence so that it is just snub then lock down the table and move the square to the back of saw, it should move with no resistance. If it does then the fence is out. What you would need to do if this is the case is align the fence to the blade, on the back of the saw are 2 10MM bolts that you need to loosen put your square at the front again and lock down the handle with that done move the square to the back and tap the rail on the back side to move tighter or looser and then lock down the bolts. What I do is move the fence away and then back and start all over again to make sure nothing shifted. It sounds more involved than it is. Let me know if this cures your problem
