    Can't get the transaction to process, though all information is correct. Need help ASAP.

    Thank you for the solution, it worked great. I had been working on this for 2 weekends, and fixed it this morning in just minutes. I saw the bolts you referred to, but I was afraid to get too aggressive, but in the end, I just needed a bigger hammer. I tried repeatedly to submit the $5, but everytime I did, the program used by the system would deny the billing information. If you didn't receive it, I apologize and will make it good, if there is a way for us to use the system. But, I need further assistance on the use of the system.

    Again, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. (My wife thanks you, too!) Bob

They just changed the format here last week and I haven't gotten used to it yet, I didn't know where your question went, I thought somebody had out bid me on it. I like the old system better. OK< back to the saw, you have 4 bolts under the saw table holding the trunnion on, get a socket on there and just loosen them a little, take you lead hammer, or brass, and whack that thing the direction you want it to go.You said you were .015" out? It is not much, so one whack with the hammer should do it. Raise up the blade as far as it can go, put a straight edge against the blade and measure to a dado slot, then the other side, it has to be the same front to rear, tighten up the trunnion when you feel it is close enough, and check it a again. If it stays put, you know your blade is aligned to the slots, now you can adjust your fence to the slots, and the saw will cut straight. Hope this helps.

I believe my table saw blade is not accurately aligned with the table and I can't find my Owner's Manual.


OK, first you should understand that the blade needs to be aligned with the miter slot. The easiest way to check this is to use a ruler.

UNPLUG YOUR SAW BEFORE BEGINNING!

First, use a pencil or a marker to mark the outside of one of the teeth on your blade, on the same side of the blade as the miter slot you're going to measure from. Position the marked tooth at the front of the table, then measure from the side of the marked tooth to the leading edge of the miter slot. To determine if it is aligned correctly, you simply spin the blade around where the marked tooth is at the back of the table and measure it again to the leading edge of the miter slot. The measurements should match. If you want to be more accurate you can use a machinists dial gauge to measure within 1/1000 of an inch.

If the measurements are off, you need to loosen the trunion bolts that mount to arbor to the table just slightly, then use a dead blow to move the table in the appropriate direction.

Search youtube for "table saw allignment" to find lots of videos showing this technique.

Also, here is a copy of your owners manual:

Blade out of alignment with miter grooves in casting top. how can I realign?


Do an online search for "table saw tune up" and sort through the articles to find one that gives detailed instructions on how to check for blade runout and how to test blade alignment with the table top. Here's one that covers the basics quickly and concisely, but there are many to choose from. Compare them with information from your powermtic user's guide.
It's a laborious process that will take a day or two and you need to loosen the bolts that fasten the saw trunnions/ mechanism to the cast top, and physically shift the alignment of the saw arbor relative to the mitre slots, then recheck it for alignment, etc. until you get it right. Sometimes you can loosen several corners and leave one kind of tight to shift the saw in the direction you want to move. Download the online manual from powermatic here by choosing your model and you'll have onhand a detailed parts diagram to guide you. If you're not up to a gruelling process, and don't have the appropriate tools, I recommend you re-check your blade to ensure it's not at fault and see if you can't live with it as is.
Otherwise, good luck and be patient. It's worth it to have it right, but wood is only wood, and at some point you have to just do the woodworking.

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 just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

How do you align the blade to the mitre slot on a Dewalt 746 table saw? trying to find step by step instructions


How did the blade get out of whack? Take the blade all the way up, put a straight edge against the blade, measure to the miter slot front and rear, if it is not the same, you will have to lightly loosen the carriage underneath and bump the thing over one way or the other with a lead hammer. Get it straight, then torque it back up. You should be all set. You can set your fence to the miter slots the same way. lock it down and check it, if it isn't right, adjust the fence, all fence adjust , from the cheapest to the best. Hope this helps.

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.

I have a Craftsman 10" table saw model number: 137.248830. The saw doesn't make square cuts, it is more of a problem when using the miter. I have followed the alignment procedure so that the right...


I assume that your alignment procedure is about adjusting your miter gage. But you should first verify if the blade is parallel to the miter slot (the slot the miter gage slides in). This is adjustable underneath the saw, and sometimes comes crooked from the factory or comes loose later on. To check if the blade is parallel to the miter slot you can do this.....1. unplug the saw. 2. Raise the blade as far as it will go. 3. Clamp a piece of wood to your miter gage so that it just touches the blade as close to the front of the saw as possible. 4. Use a marker and mark that spot on the blade. 5. Now slide the miter toward the back of the saw, and rotate the blade by hand so that your piece of wood hits the same spot as where you checked in the front. You can see a large misalignment by eye. But you can get a little precise by using a piece of paper between the wood and the blade as a feeler gage. Or better yet, use a drop indicator instead of the piece of wood and you can measure the difference. If this isn't as close to parallel as you are able to measure it, you need to turn the saw over and find the bolts that attach the whole assembly under there to the table top. Once you have this in alignment, you should be able to set your miter to be square against any good square. If you don't have a high quality square, you can go to a tool store (Sears or whoever) with your miter gage in hand, and set it to be square against their most expensive square. If the square is square, and the blade is parallel to the slot and it still won't cut square you either have a bad blade or there is too much play in the saw's arbor. Try to wiggle the blade side-to-side - any wiggle at all is too much.

How do I align the saw blade with the saw table I have a 10 inch Delta Contractor's saw that is about 10 years old. The blade is not straignt with the miter slot. andyc@bergeralllied.com


The Blade Arbor is held to the bottom of the table with mounting screws and stop/adjusting screws. Loosen the mounting screw and adjust the stop screws to make Blade true with miter slot.

Several possibilities come to mind:

1) Check the alignment of the arbor -- it's possible the arbor or arbor nut are not completely true. Detailed instructions are here:
http://woodgears.ca/saw_arbor/index.html

2) Check the alignment of the blade to the miter slots. If you aligned only the fence to the miter slots, it's possible the fence may not be aligned with the blade if the blade is out of alignment.

3) You said you checked the alignment of the fence and splitter, but these are the most common causes for the problem you're having. You might want to re-check the alignment of both, using a different method. Try these methods:

Be methodical and follow the directions for alignment closely. The extra attention you put into aligning your saw will pay you back many times over in clean, accurate cuts.

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.
