Question about Ryobi 9 in. Benchtop Band Saw

3 Answers

Cut is always crooked. From the top to the bottom of the cut is always crooked. Can not get the saw to cut a 90 degree ( or even close to 90) angle. Even of I adjust the table to be out of square to the blade the cut is always crooked Vertically.

It took me a very long time to adjust my ryobi bandsaw properly. The guides above and below need to be straight, and the guides just barely not touching. The blade should be tight, and make a musical note somewhere above middle c when you pluck it.

Check for loose, missing or out of adjustment blade guides both above and below table. Also check blade tension.

Hi,
It sounds as though you may be cutting too quickly. Try decreasing the pressure you are applying to the wood.
You could also try tightening the blade more, until it PINGS when you flick it with your finger.(When it's stationary of course)
I'm assuming your guides are adjusted correctly.

I am unable to cut 5" baseboard at 45 degree angle


from your last post this information was missing
when cutting at an angle the cut depth is always reduced and the 5" board is too thick
to do what you want the saw will have to be 10" or bigger because when cutting at an angle you are cutting a hypotenuse which is the longest dimension of a triangle
so if the saw cuts to a depth of 5" at right angles the angle cut will be longer because of the triangle effect

I did a 45 degree bevel cut with my Dewalt portable table saw and now I can not get the blade back to a 90 degree position, any thoughts?


Did you check to see if the saw has a locking nut on the front of the bevel gauge handle? Its possible you just locked it into position and forgot to unlock.

My sliding laser miter saw is about 1 degree off on 90 degrees cuts, how do youadjust it?


Adjust the angle by turning the bed of the saw bit by bit until you have a 90 degree cut on a piece of timber measured with a carpenters square. Some saws have an adjustable pointer and you can now adjust it to point to 90 degrees. If the bevel cut is off, the vertical downwards cut, there may be grub screw at the back of the saw which will allow you to make adjustments.

How do I cut moulding for steps? What do the numbers on the table saw mean....like 22.5 degrees?


By default people keep their blade set to 90 degrees - perpendicular to the table. There are times you need to cut a beveled edge which is not 90 degrees.

The numbers on the saw refer to the bevel angle or how far from 90 degrees your blade is tilted.

Outside corner one side 30 down [ crown moulding ]


If the corner is to be 90 degrees than all you need do is set the compound angle on your chop saw at 15 degrees to get the 30 degree down side. If you cut only one side the thickness will be different at the joint so you have to spit the angle. Boy now you got me going. Tomorrow I'm going to be trying this cut in the shop myself. Good luck.

Grinder problem


* The base plate can be tilted to make angled cuts. Most saws adjust from 90 degrees to slightly less than 45 degrees, making it possible to cut bevelled ends on boards for corning attachments, hip-roof rafter cuts, and even miters. Most saws are equipped with a thumbscrew or lever to loosen the bolt which keeps the saw blade on the correct angle for the cut you are making, located on the front of the saw. Some are also equipped with a scale which indicates the blade angle, from '0' (90 degrees, or square to the board surface) to 45 degrees. * The blade can be set to the depth required for individual cuts, from less than 1/8 inch to the full depth the blade is capable of penetrating. The lever or thumbscrew which locks the base plate at the desired height is usually located at the rear of the motor on the left side. * Many circular saws are equipped with a ripping fence, to guide the blade as you make a rip cut along the edge of a board, giving you a straighter, parallel cut. * Dust ejector. A few newer saws are equipped with a dust ejector to blow the sawdust away from the operator's face and from the mark where the cut is being made. * Laser tracking light. Some newer saws are equipped with a laser that projects a bright, red line down the path of the blade travel. These can also be purchased to retrofit on older units that are not factory equipped with them. * Blade guard. This should be considered a essential safety feature on any saw, and has two parts, the fixed guard over the top of the blade, and the floating guard, which rolls out of the way as the saw is pushed into the work piece. Some have a handle so the blade guard can manually be lifted for plunge cutting or easier viewing of the cutting mark.
