Refurb Skil table saw blade alignment problems

I bought a Skil refurb table saw from CPO. I have tried the adjustments described in the manual but can not get the blade to right angle with the table or parallel to the guide. Is there repair service in the Albany, NY area?

SOURCE: bought model 3400 skil table saw. have no manual.

Crank the blade up to its highest level using the knob on the side, then on the front of the saw loosen the lever and tilt the blade to whatever angle you want, using the gauge on the front as your guide. You can always go online to the Skil website and download a manual, or contact them about sending you one.

This model does not have a knob on the side.
There is only a locking lever on the front next to a single rotating wheel for height adjustments. To tilt the blade simply twist the locking lever to the left and push the height adjustment wheel to the right. It can be a bit stiff at times to move.

The blade on my new skil 3310 won't raise. It came preassembled & has never been used, but the elevation wheel feels locked. I can adjust the angle, but turning the knob doesn't raise/lower blade.


Just as a question and I am not being smart you know that the wheel to raise the blade work counter clockwise.
The other thing you need to check is in your manual here is the part how to adjust the blade for raisin/lowering.
After five hours of operation, the blade elevation/tilting mechanism should be checked for looseness, binding, or other abnormalities. Disconnect the saw from the power source, turn the saw upside down and pull up and down on the motor unit. Observe any movement in the motor mounting mechanism. Looseness or play in the blade raising screw 1 should be adjusted as follows (Fig. 55): 1. Loosen nut 2. 2. Adjust the nut 3 until it is finger-tight against the bracket 4, then back off the nut 3 1/6 turn. 3. Tighten nut 2. The maximum allowable play of the screw rod 1 is 5/32" (4 m). Place a small amount of dry lubricant (such as graphite or silicon) on the screw rod 1 at the thrust washer 5. Do not oil the threads of screw rod 1. The screw rod 1 must be kept clean and free of sawdust, gum, pitch, and other contaminant's for smooth operation. NOTE: If excessive looseness is observed in any other part of the blade elevation mechanism or tilting mechanism, take the complete unit to an authorized service center.

How do I get the blade on my new Black and Decker 15 amp table saw to be at 90 degrees? I have the angle device at the zero mark and the blade is still at a slight angle. Is there any adjustment tha


I had a similar problem with my Ryobi table saw. I got out my square to establish true vertical, then tapped the motor housing lightly with a rubber mallet until the blade was at true vertical.

(sometime a hammer is the appropriate tool.....)

Need to know how to change the agle on the blade for a protech 10 in table saw


Hi Ron,

You didn't give your model.

Protech is out of business so I could not find a user's guide for you.

The knob on the front that you use to raise and lower the blade also adjusts the angle. Depending on your saw, normally the knob releases from raise/lower mode to angle adjustment by either pulling the knob out and moving it or by pushing a lever to release it and then moving the knob.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Thanks,

Handie Andie

I am just setting up my new Skil bandsaw, and the table is not level--won't go to 0 degrees. Is there an adjustment I'm missing?


usually there is a stop bolt under the table that you can adjust so that you are able to zero out the table. it should have a lock nut so that when you get the table set to where you want it you can lock down the bolt so that the table is easily re set after moving the table for an angle cut.

Blade does not square up on c10fsh miter saw


To square up a mite saw blade, you need to eeither move the table or adjust it to be square if it is out in the mitre angle, or if it is out in the bevel angle the whole saw head needs to be adjusted, and this is done via the bevel adjustment at the back of the saw. There may be a bevel stop bolt to return the saw back to 90 degrees if moved to a different bevel angle. Usually the blade itself is not adjusted bu either the saw table or the bevel angle of the saw head itself to correct these issues.

Have a Skil #3305-01 table saw. Need to set blade


The jam nut is on the end of the bolt you are adjusting, directly underneath the table. The easiest way to get to it is to place the saw on it's left side, and move the saw blade to the maximum bevel position (45 degrees). You can then reach up -directly underneath the location of the bolt on top - and access the jam nut.

To be clear - the bolt you are tightening is about 2 inches long with the jam nut on the end with the purpose of tightening the bolt into place once you have established the correct adjusted position.

And yes, the directions for this step were terrible.

User manual for adjusting your saw here.
When you set it up, make sure you check for square to the table, square to the fence, and check square for toe-in or at a 45 deg. angle across the blade from the corner where fence meets table, like you would check a radial arm saw. (hold a framing square with one leg against line of fence/table and other leg against blade and inclined 45 to both table and fence. Make sure all three are dead square.
I never found any way to compensate for the play in the blade itself. It seems like the manufacturing tolerances are a little too loose.

You may need a heavier plated blade. You may simply need a different saw. Those Dewalts are great workhorses, and I love the design, but it's my experience that when you're trying to miter hardwoods of any substantial size there's a little bit of drift in the cut as the blade comes through the wood.
You can try cutting at a slower rate.
I've found that makitas are a little more solid through the cut, though I don't like the general ergonomics as much...
Kind of a pain, isn't it?
Well, good luck.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Makita chopsaw when cutting angles blade is cutting table


You can adjust the location where the blade drops into the groove in the table. Look on page 24 of this manual and you will see exactly how to adjust the table:
