First look for a stuck piece of wood in the gear tilt area. The other thing is if you don't tilt it that often the track or swivel can get rusty at the ends. try wd-40 on all the moving parts and you may even have to steel wool the track a little... sometimes as the blade tilts a loose screw will allow it to fall out of alignment jamming the arbor. Turn it upside down with the blade fully retracted and unplugged and see if you can give it a push inside as you tern.-- good luck

My Jet JTAS-10XL tilting mechanism locked up when cranking it back to 90 degrees.Does not appear to have any way to free it up. Is it pitch buildup?


I would guess pitch or just saw dust in the gears. I have had on my saw that i cranked it up just a little to much and it locked up on the gear. I ended up taking the blade out and loosened the gears and shaft on the tilting mechanism to relief the pressure. Put it back together and it worked fine.

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.

The owner of Inline Industries (he invented the PALS product that lets you get a precision alignment on a contractor saw) has a video that shows how to add grease fittings that will make blade raising, lowering and tilting very easy. Check him out. He sent me the video when I bought the PALS.

I have a 1/16" tilt


Your question is not very clear. Here are several answers.
By tilt you may be speaking of bevel adjustment 0 - 45 Some saws have hidden under the table or obvious positive bevel stops or screws in the table top for 90 and 45 degree. Adjust them.
You may have a bent or warped blade causing the "tilt."
Thin blades may be stiffened with blade stabilizing washers $14
With the saw unplugged remove the blade. Grab the threaded arbor shaft and pull it up and down. Next push the shaft straight in and out. If there is wiggle the bearings are worn and may need replacing.

I just bought this table saw and when i tilt the blade to 45 deg. the blade rubs on the blade insert. also when i put it together it didnt come with a riving knife and hardware.


I ran into that kind of problem with my Craftsman 10 table saw. I (an usual) over analyzed the problem and looked at moving the entire motor assembly from left to right slightly. In the end, I found that that the blade stablizer plates I used on the left and right of the blade, moved the blade that little bit needed to make the blade tips make contact. I removed the two stablizer plates, reinstalled the blade with the normal to flat washers and gave it a try. The blade now cleared the insert when pushed all the way to 45 degrees.

You might want to look to make sure there are no extra washers/spacers on the arbor that might move the blade slightly left or right from its normal position.

I have a Contractor's Craftsman 10 " table saw, #113.29884, that will not tilt to a true 45.degrees. It starts to bind up at about 43 degrees and refuses further tilt just shy of true 45 degrees. Thus four...


yes there is, first I would unplug the tool and tilt on its back and thoroughly try and clean the debris from the undercarriage. Then go to managemyhome.com and download a manual for this, I was looking at page 55 and it talks about how to reset the saw to make square cuts. Let me know if you need more assistance

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

Table Saw Blade Won't Cut Straight


Inside the saw, on the end of the trunnion is a stop that is adjustable to zero the saw in to exactly 90 degrees. Either there is sawdust or something accumulated there or it needs to be adjusted. You say you cleaned it out, So you'll need to unplug it an have a look up in there. See how there's a geared piece of steel that moves when you crank the saw over to 45 degrees. Usually there's a bolt or stud with a locking nut on it, either on the trunnion itself or the lower surface of the table top. You need to break the nut loose and screw the bolt in or out to adjust, then crank the saw over to hit it, check for square with a known square, crank it all the way out of the way and readjust, etc. Until you get it right. Make sure to tighten that lock nut when you're done.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!
