When you are facing the front of the table saw. Right above the Dewalt logo, there is a hand wheel that if you crank clockwise - it will tilt your table saw blade to the angle shown where the hand wheel is.

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

Tip

Making a wooden picture frame with perfect corners


Picture frames are very easy to make, but many people make the same very basic mistake that will ruin your frame. It is very important that you follow the carpenters rule of measure twice and cut once. If you don't cut the sides of the frame to be the same length, and you cut the angles of the corners slightly off then when you put it together the final corner won't line up.

The things that you are going to need is a miter saw, some clamps, a backer board and a drafting squares to make sure you have the right angle.

To set up take your backer board and cut off a piece that's around 4 inches to be used as a sliding marker gauge. After cutting it off attach a small piece of wood to keep the slider from shifting around.

With the saw unplugged and turned off clamp the backer board to the back of the saw. To cut the corners of the a frame you need to set the saw to a 45 degree angle. Make sure to check the angle using a drafting square align one side with the backer board and bring down the saw blade align them to make sure its a 45 degree angle. When you think that its right grab yourself a piece of scrap wood and make an initial cut. After cutting the test measure the angle to make sure that it is the right angle.

When you are ready to cut the frame itself take the four pieces of the frame and make an initial cut. Once all the boards have been cut once take your slider marker to the length that you want the sides of the frame to be and clamp it in. Take the first two sides and one at a time line it up with the backer board with the angle on the outside and the cut point against the slider. Turn on the saw and cut the other end. Repeat these steps to cut the other three sides.

After all the sides have been cut use a 90 degree angle to align the corners of the frame. Lay out all the sides of the frame and line them up as tight as you can. To connect them you can use a staple gun to staple the corners together. If you were aligning it and pushing the sides together when you stapled the corners you should have perfectly aligned corners.

Now all that's left is to sand it down and get the inside ready for a picture and stain it if you want.

The saw cuts at a angle, want cut stright2


replace the chain with a new one
saws that cut at an angle normally have blunt teeth on one side of the cut
the sharp side cuts the angle and the blunt side follows

After using anew chaini hit dirt. isharpenit withadifferntanglewillthat make a differencein cutting.


sure will , most saws have different angle cuts to teeth on blade this "angle" needs to be maintained as the "rake" teeth that are behind the cut teeth are set to provide a good way to wipe out cut debris (cut,rake,cut,etc.) this is how chain cuts thru wood , if one changes the cut angle on teeth the rake teeth might not do there job correct and saw bogs and "files" thru wood rather than chips thru wood ,takes longer ,more fuel, more effort , a look at saw cuttings tells the tale , more tiny file sawdust = dull chain --- large Chips and less dust = sharp chain

What is a compound miter saw?


A compound miter saw has a rotating vertical pivot allowing the cutter head & blade to be tilted (or beveled) sideways in addition to the horizontally rotating table. This allows vertical & horizontal angled cuts as well as cuts angled in both planes.

How to make a 45 degree angle cut


1. place your moulding inside the box.
2. place the tip of the blade in the first slot and the back end in the third slot. thats a 45 degree angle.
3. to figure which way you need your angle place your moulding at the corner and mark in the corner continuing the line to the outside edge. all you should have to do is cut this mark.
4. if your piece is too difficult to first place in the corner use a measuring tape and be sure that when you are cutting that the piece is facing the correct way so not to cut the wrong angle.

hope this helped dont forget to vote

I have an outside corner cut with a 45 degree slant and cannot figure out what my angle should be to get the right outside miter cut


You can solve this with geometry, but it will take forever and your answer will only be approximate (due partly to the limits of accuracy of the scales on your saw). If you are using a table saw, use scraps of wood and trial and error. It takes a while, but you can get a perfect result. If you are using a miter saw, then support your work from underneath at the angle to match your situation, and simply cut at 45 degrees.
