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.

How to adjust the blade on skil bandsaw 3385 that will not stay on


This is one of most common problems with Skil saws. Make sure that you set the correct tension and track the blade properly. It could also be problem on the blade specially on the weld. I suggest you visit bandsawblog.com for helpful band saw techniques and sawblade.com . I get my blades from them.

Blade is not square to table


There are manuals for the Skil 3400 available online.
Centering the blade to the table simply requires a screwdriver, a good square, and some patience. Basically you're loosening up the points that hold it vertically and horizontally (front to back), checking them against the table with your square, and then tightening them up when everything looks nice and ninety degrees.

It's not the best saw in the world, but with a little work, I've been able to get it to make 90 degree cuts and perfect miters with a miter sled and a cross-cut sled I built using aluminum (I think?) T-shaped replacement runners that would normally be used for the worthless miter guide that comes with it.

Table saw blade alignment


Are you referring to the table top or rip fence alignment? The blade itself is not aligned. We adjust the table to parallel with blade and the rip fence should toe away from blade 0.01mm over the length of the rip fence to prevent binding.

Problem with 10" craftsman table saw


Your adjustment should be done on the rip fence which will align it to the blade for strait non binding cuts.

Blade is not parallel to the channel. How do I adjust it?


Instruction manual for your saw is here. See Page 21. You need to adjust your blade alignment to the miter slots. As mentioned in the manual, there are a couple bolts that hold the rear trunnion in place. Loosen them up, shift the motor a bit (not an easy task). Keep checking blade alignment until you've got it down.

There are after market trunnion alignment kits for table saws that make this a bit easier. Check out PALS (Precision Alignment & Locking System). For $20 or so, it makes the process MUCH MUCH easier.

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.

Blade Alignment?


ok yep your blade is out of alignment with the fence. It is closer to the fence at the rear than the front. You need to make the modification or adjustment to your fence, if it allows that, and then worry about the miter slots later (which should be adjusted miter slot to blade, not miter slot to fence). You might be able to adjust the miter slot to blade by moving the actual table and then securing witht he table mount bolts. Check your manual for how to align the fence.

You do want to fix that though as it can be potentially dangerous and result in kickback of the workpiece which is a rather SCARY thing, and very dangerous.

Skil saw motor runs but blade won't spin


you have a loose nut.  Let me explain...the nut and washer that holds the blade to the motor has worked loose.  You need to remove the plate around the blade to acess it and on the end of the blade is a large nut.  Tighten it with the power off.  Sometime there is a grove on the motor shaft to hold the motor or sometimes you need to put a screwdriver into the teeth of the blade to hold in place to tighten.
