Hello. First of all adjust your saw on straight cuts so that it is spot on 90 degrees. Then go to the 45 and test it again. Being off a tiny amount at 90 degrees is compounded when you go to 45 degrees.

Blade is not square to table


There are manuals for the Skil 3400 available online.
Centering the blade to the table simply requires a screwdriver, a good square, and some patience. Basically you're loosening up the points that hold it vertically and horizontally (front to back), checking them against the table with your square, and then tightening them up when everything looks nice and ninety degrees.

It's not the best saw in the world, but with a little work, I've been able to get it to make 90 degree cuts and perfect miters with a miter sled and a cross-cut sled I built using aluminum (I think?) T-shaped replacement runners that would normally be used for the worthless miter guide that comes with it.

Ryobi mitre saw jamming when cutting


There's a normal adjustment process of squaring the blade to the table, page 19 of your manual. If the blade is not square to the table then it will bind. Here's the link for the manual, see page 19.

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.

Neeed to calibrate bevel stop on dewalt 708 compund miter saw. at zero degrees (or 90 really) it is out of square a half degree.


I assume you can find the adjusting screws, but here's how to measure if you have it dead-on: First, confirm repeatability as follows----. Move the saw as if you were going to cut at miter, then move it back to zero. Now cut off the end of a 6 inch (or so) board. Then move the saw again, and move it back to zero. Cut off about 3/4 inch of the same board (make sure you haven't turned the board over). The 3/4 inch piece you have cut off might not be square, but the two cut edges of the 3/4 inch piece should be exactly parallel to each other. Find a way to confirm that. A micrometer or good calipers make this easy, but you may have to improvise - the key is that your check for parallel needs to be more precise than measuring it with eyeballs and a tape measure. Repeat this a couple of times. You may find that you have to be careful about resetting the saw each time so that you can get repeatability. OK, now that you have a repeatable setting turn the board over and take another cut. Any deviation from 0 (or 90) will be doubled and the two cuts will not be parallel. Make your adjustments to the saw until you get two parallel cuts when you flip the board over. And one more thing! This method ASSUMES that the board you are cutting has parallel edges. If you have calipers this is easy to confirm.

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.

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).
