How do I miter with my radial arm saw (RA-2500). I can't tell from the manual.


the slide can be angled by the degree plate where the timber sits
the blade can be angled by the degree plate on the arm that mounts the saw
so you can get a 45 degree to the timber length and a 45 degree angle cut to that angle to give you a corner mitre cut

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.

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.

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

I cannot get a perfect 45 degree angle with my Makita circular saw. Is it me or the saw??


When using the gauge on your saw it is off on the 45 degree cut? If so you might have to use a tri Square every time you want to cut a 45. Sometimes the lock gauge for the 45 angle may be off some. When you put a tri square on the board you cut it is not a true 45 even though the saw says it is?

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!
