Question about Craftsman Saws

1 Answer

I have an old Craftsman 9 inch table saw that will not cut straight. When you set the fence and get evrything ready it cuts at an angle. A 1x4 will not cut straight it always cuts at an angle. Is there a bushing kit or something I can by for it ?

Unplug the saw then:
turn the saw over or, get under it; there is a long bolt that sets the
saw motor tilt two nuts jam lock it; release the nuts and adjust the saw using a t-square for 90 degrees.

Blade on Hitachi C12FCH mitre saw has begun to cut into left side of blade slot on turn table. Angle cuts (90,45,etc) still accurate. How do I realign blade run to avoid hitting turntable?


Realign fence to blade, must be 90 degrees, using a level for straight edge bring other fence co planed with aligned fence. . You saw will only cut as accurate as you set it up., I spent over 2 hours on my 12 inch to ensure that it was vertical, exactly 90 degrees and exactly 45 degree both left and right. I used engineer squares.

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!

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.

The blade is not sqare to the front of the table, with the fence next to the blade there is a 1/8 inch differance. how do i adjust the blade or the motor/shaft


you don't adjust anything but the fence if I understand the question correctly. You are using the fence for a straight cut and there is a gap, if so on the back of the saw UNPLUG SAW FIRST you will find a schematic about hhow to adjust the fence but all you have to do is loosen the 2 bolts where the arrows are I believe they are 10MM and lift the guard out of the way then gently run the fence next to the blade and "push" the fence square to the blade and tighten the bolts, usually it takes a couple times (I always recheck it). Now if the blade set at 0 degrees is not square you reset the angle from the front. Let me know if you need more help

Unable to make a straight cut with saw. Tried adjusting tension, lowered blade, made sure blade aligned properly and did not feed too quickly. HEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLPPPPPP! Thanks in advance.


Hello, I think that the problem you are having is called "drift" . each blade will cut different than the last. The way I was taught to cure this goes as follows.
-take fence off off table(or just move over)
-get a good square piece of material appx. 1x3 and mark a straight line about 1/2" from edge the full length of the board.
-with out the fence cut the board along the line appx. 1/2 the length.
-shut off saw WITH board in it.
-use a angle finder along the edge of the board, set angle finder
-remove board and put the fence back on.
-now slide the angle finder up to the fence, you should see that the angle is different than the fence (this is the DRIFT ), adjust the fence to the angle finder( I know that the smaller saws usalley don't have this adjustment ) you will have to find a way i.e. shim etc.

This is a very common problem but once you get the idea it is a easy fix
Remember: A guy taught me and I taught you, pass it along thats what we do.LOL
Hope it helped.

I can't get this saw to cut straight or square I


Band saws pull to one side on straight cuts, it's a function of the blade torque. My 14" saw pulls to the right. There's nothing you can do to stop this, you have to be aware of it so you account for it on free cuts and know to put your fence on that side so the wood pulls into the fence instead of away from it. Squaring the blade to the table is easier. Do not go by the tilt angle guide. First make absoutely sure all of your blade guides and bearings are properly alligned so they aren't pushing the blade out of line. Use a square to get it close then: using a 4" x 4" block of wood, make a light cut in the wood only deep enough to mark the wood from top to bottom. Turn the block over 180 and try to make a cut in the previous cut mark. If the cuts line up you're there. If you get a V or X you have to make adjustments to the table making sure you tighten the trunion locks tight. I had one of these, it's not a high end saw so don't expect a lot from it.

New table saw, timber runninig off away from guide, saw blade running its own line,do i need to reset the guide.


The guide is called a fence. The fence should be positioned to the right of the blade. When using the fence, the largest part of the board goes between the blade and fence. Fences are typically have some relief toward the end, so you don't get the blade cutting on it's way down, and then cutting again on it's way up.

Older Delta 10'' Miter Saw Zero setting is out by 1/2 degree.


Undid the RH fence-bolt in the table behind the fence and tapped the end of the fence forward to make it perpendicular to the blade. Tighten bolt. When you look down on the two fence bolt heads, one is easy to rotate with a socket wrench, the LH bolt head would be very, very difficult to move. Undo the RH bolt to swing the fence angle WRT the blade.

Can I mount a Delta 36-T30 T2 30-Inch Fence and Rail System on my


I just installed a Delta T2 fence on my 10" Craftsman Table Saw. It's 27" deep. The bushing either could be relocated or you could use spacers on the front, back, or both on the saw to get the required distance. Also, you'll have to drill new holes, however, I used one of the existing holes in the front and back of my saw as well.
