If the saw is adjustable for angle we usually use an engineers square against the blade to get it upright and then you may find an adjustable stop or stops somewhere so you can set the position ready for the next time you need to set it.

Hi, am looking for the 2 spacers and the neut that hods the blade on to a 10 inch craftsman radial arm saw and was curious if I could purchase one thank you


contact craftsman manufacturer spares to see if they are available
one washer will have a slot across the back and is the driving washer for the blade
the front washer will be flat and is the clamping washer
most manufacturers use generic products here so check for washers from other 10 " saws ( appliance repair shops , junk yard shops etc)

I have a craftsman professional radial arm saw model 9058 the blade is dog tracking how do I adjust it


On my old unit, there are 4 allen head bolts that secure the saw to the housing. If you slack them back you should be able to set the alignment so the blade is exactly at right angles to the fence. Just use a framing square to align. When you turn the housing for ripping cuts it should be parallel to the fence.
No more dog tracking!

Craftsman saw mod # 113-298051


The blade is able to be set to different angles by the handle under the front edge of the table. There is a lock handle to keep the angle set correctly. Loosen the lock handle, press a square (90 degree tool) against the flat of the blade - not the teeth - then lock the blade in place.

I was recently given and older Craftsman 10" table sawa. It worked great for cuttin some 2x4 and now all of a sudden it will only cut part way7 and than stops, and it smokes--Help!!


The problem could be one of the following:
1) dull blade, in which case replace with a carbide-toothed blade
2) underpowered or old/faulty electric motor
3) faulty/worn belt, in which case replace with new belt
4) The pulley on either the motor or the saw arbor (where the pulley attaches underneath the saw near blade) could be loose. Tighten down set screw.
5) The saw fence isn't set straight causing the wood to jam as you push it into the blade. Check this with a framing square and readjust so it is at a 90-degree angle to the front of the saw table.

How to adjust the blade at exact 90 degre


Use a carpenter square, place the square on the table top with the blade up right, adjust the tilt of the table saw blade until it is exactly parallel to the blade of the carpenter square. Check the blade in several places as the table saw blade is sometimes warped. Try to adjust until a happy median is obtained.

When I change the tile of the arbor/blade I have to fight with the darned thing to get it back to 90 degrees for a square cut. Are there any ''adjustments'' short of dismanteling? Thanks and Cheers, Gary


not sure what you are asking, but if the cranking is difficult, try blowing out the sawdust with an air nozzle. I deal in craftsman table saw parts. I have found that several of their last 113.xxxxxx models have a major design flaw, they built the cases thinner & less rigid than previous models, these flex & bend, which would make cranking back to 90 degrees impossible. Best fix is to get an earlier case that will fit it, problem will be solved,as the metal is thicker, & has L's built in to stiffen it. Sears should have recalled these saws, most I get as parts saws are bent. If more info needed email me, Jim

The blade is not straight up and down I need to know how to adjust it. ****


With the unit unplugged, find the knob which controls the angle.

One of the turn knobs raises and lowers the blade. The other is tied to the degree labled pointer. usually you'll have to pull it out to engage the actual adjustment part. Crank it till the pointer is stopped at the top range where it says 90. To verify, i usually use a 90 degree right angle to make sure it's true 90 degrees.

I have a 10" ryobi table saw and my bevel will not return to the 0 degree position. I can change the angle, but I can not get the blade to sit straight up and down. I can push it almost to zero with much...


I have a Ryobi folding table saw and I learned how to adjust the bevel through trial and error. There are two allen key machine set screws in the top of the table. One for 90 and the other for 45. I backed the 90 screw off past 90 and than set the blade exactly at 90. Now I screwed the allen screw in to touch the blade. It seemed to work for me. Mind you it will have to be checked often to insure a perfect cut. Good luck.

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!
