Promblem with Makita 1013 ajusting blade to cut square


Just found your problem, what you need to do it unplug tool and get a good square. Set the blade at 0deg. and then put the square on the left side of the blade to check it. If it is out of square you would need to loosen the fence bolts (13MM) and adjust the fence, snug bolts on the left side and move your square to the right and recheck and then snug the bolts there, I always recheck the fence to ensure it is square and not moved before tightening the bolts fully. If the head is out there are bolts on the pivot that need to be adjusted and again recheck. If you go to Makitausa.com you can download an owners manual with instructions on what to do. Let me know if you still have problems.

My job is not cutting in perfect 90 degree. Means cutting is tapper. How to solve this problem.


You need to adjust the bandsaw table square to the blade. There's an adjustment nut under the table top that locks it square to the blade. Also make sure all guides and bearings are correctly adjusting so the blade will not deflect when cutting, but follows a true path. Check to be sure the guides under the table are properly adjusted, as well as those on top, and that the blade is properly tensioned.. It could also be a dull blade at fault, I suppose, if all else is correct.
See these setup instructions.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

When I try to cut a 45 it seems to be cutting a little more than a 45. how do I adjust it?


Make sure the blade is 90 deg vertical to the saw table. Make sure the indicator is set approprately. Raise the blade just enough to clear the table/base. Place a swanson speed square against the fence and blade. Make sure the indicator is at 90 degrees. Here you might want to tilt the square and check that the complete blade is flush against the sqaure as high up as possible. Lay the square back flat on the table and pull the blade toward you as much as possible. The teeth on the blade should ride against the square extented completely out.

Now set the square against the fence with the 45 degree angle coming away from the table and set the blade on the 45 deg mark on the insicator scale.
The blade should touch the square all the way out fully extented.

Or just experiment with some scrap and check

Need to adjust Miter gauge for Delta tablesaw 36-977. The 90 degree stop is off


1) Before setting the Miter gauge, check that the blade is straight (parallel) with the slide grooves. Lock a board in the miter gauge and place against the front of the blade, and then the back of the blade. Is the distance EXACTLY the same (it won't matter if the miter gauge isn't straight and square). If not, you'll need to loosen the table and rotate the blade holder to square it up.
2) Now Cut a board in half the flip one side over and place the cut back together. If it isn't straight, the resulting board will have a "dog-leg".
3) Adjust the miter-set-screw until the cuts on the trial board yield a board that comes out straight (or use a Framing square to check).

Mitre for handrail, 30 deg incline into a 180 deg handrail going around a 90 deg corner


the miter should be 30 degrees. If it is mitering into a gooseneck fitting, there should have been a pamphlet explaining the three R's of stairbuilding. Rise, Rake, and Run. You will need a pitch block(triangle cut out of your step). I hang the drop over the top step, take the pitch block and set the short side of the block on the step with the diagonal toward the back of the fitting. push forward until they just meet and mark the intersection on the bottom of the rail and on the pitch block. now rotate the pitch block 90 degrees with the long side on the step. diagonal still facing back of the fitting. push forward until your mark on the pitch block intersects the top of the rail. now you have marked the top and bottom of the rail fitting. you will have to hold it as squarely to the miter fence as you can and when you cut it, cut it a little long to leave room for adjusting. the rail coming up the steps will be cut square and they will be fastened together with a rail bolt. if you dont have one, purchase the little kit. it is only a few dollars and it gives these insructions. good luck

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.

User manual for adjusting your saw here.
When you set it up, make sure you check for square to the table, square to the fence, and check square for toe-in or at a 45 deg. angle across the blade from the corner where fence meets table, like you would check a radial arm saw. (hold a framing square with one leg against line of fence/table and other leg against blade and inclined 45 to both table and fence. Make sure all three are dead square.
I never found any way to compensate for the play in the blade itself. It seems like the manufacturing tolerances are a little too loose.

You may need a heavier plated blade. You may simply need a different saw. Those Dewalts are great workhorses, and I love the design, but it's my experience that when you're trying to miter hardwoods of any substantial size there's a little bit of drift in the cut as the blade comes through the wood.
You can try cutting at a slower rate.
I've found that makitas are a little more solid through the cut, though I don't like the general ergonomics as much...
Kind of a pain, isn't it?
Well, good luck.

Cutting straight


this is usually caused by a dull blade or you need to carefully re-adjust the blade guides
