That fence is one of the easiest to adjust and maintain. Look behind the lock at the white squares that slide along the front of the fence, one missing? Or worn down past the other side? It has a screw on the outside to adjust it in and out. It is a big Allen head. Line the fence up to a saw slot in the table, lock it loosely, adjust the screws so the fence is aligned with the slot, move it and bring it back, it should match up. Make sure it has the nylon pads on there or it wear through the aluminum real fast. Check it out, Hope this helps.

How do you adjust the rip fence on the Dewalt 744 type 1 table saw


there are 2 bolts on the backside that you need to loosen and move the fence to the blade to align it properly, after aligning tighten the bolts and I always recheck to ensure that it didn't move, there are instructions in the owners manual and if you don't have one you can go to dewaltservicenet.com and download one for the tool. Let me know if you need more assistance

Rip fence is out of alignment..what do I need to do?


This is the fundamental problem with rip fences on table saws. I don't know what kind of rip fence you have, but most rip fences are adjustable for squareness. However, unless you have a very nice (and expensive) rip fence, they often don't self-align when you move them anyway. If you have the type that clamps at the front and the back of the table, the problem can be overcome by making sure the rip fence is straight before you clamp it in place. The easiest way I have found to do that is to use an adjustable square. Put the front of the rip fence where you want it, then set the adjustable square so that it matches the distance from the miter slot in the table to the fence. Then move the square to the back of the table and move the back of the fence to meet the end of the square. Now clamp it in place and check the front and the back one more time. It's tedious to do this every time you adjust the fence, but you can get a perfectly aligned fence this way. This method assumes that your blade is parallel to your miter slots, which is adjustable too, but you have to get underneath the saw to do that. good luck, Al K

My fence is square to the table. How do I set the blade so it is square to the table? There is a 1\8" difference in the distance between the front and back of the blade in relation to the groove the miter...


I'm betting that the table isn't square to the blade. My Cabinet Makers Table Saw does the same thing - the top plate (the big heavy cast iron plate that weighs about 50 pounds) sits on top of the sheet metal box that houses the motor and motor lift. This cast iron plate is held onto the sheet metal box by 3 screws (usually).

Loosen the 3 screws and the cast iron plate can move around on top of the sheet metal box (the holes for the screws are large enough to allow 1/8 inch movement). Looking down from the top, you can rotate the cast iron plate clockwise and it will move the front of the blade closer to the fence and the back of the blade away from the fence. Counter-clockwise does the opposite.

For the best adjustment, use a dial indicator mounted to something that slides in the track of the table top. Position the dial indicator agains the blade and slide it back and forth in the track of the table top. This will accurately set the table top to the blad (so they are parallel within 0.0005 inches).

Then check the accuracy of your fence (sounds like this is good). Don't forget to check the alignment of your riving knife/guard & splitter to the blade (if it's off you can't feed wood because it will hit the splitter).

Rip fence to saw blade alignment


I dont believe there are pictures, but what you need to do is move the fence to the blade, there are 2 10MM bolts on the backside that you need to loosen and then you can move the fence to square with the blade. Snug them down and move the fence and recheck let me know if you have anymore problems

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.

Biesemeyer fence not parallel to blade.


Yes you can adjust the angle of the fence. There are two adjusters at the front of the fence where it meets the fence rail. Adjusting these will pivot the fence either slightly left or slightly right.

There is a basc video on youtube my daughter made to show you how to align yourfence to the saw blade.

Blade Alignment?


By splitter I take it you mean fence. If this is correct there could be a couple things that I would look for. UNPLUG saw and check the blade at 0 for being inline, make sure flanges are on correctly and finally what I would look at is the adjustable table bringing the fence toward the blade. Loosen lever and move it to the first slot where the guide would go align the front of fence and lock lever then check the back of the fence to make sure it is straight. If not you would have to adjust the back rail to align it. What I made to do this is 2 of the rails from the guide slide into the slot and on the back of the saw are 2 10MM bolts that need to be loosened and the rear slide moved one way or the other after loosening the lever push the fence tight to whatever you use as a guide and snug the bolts move the fence away and then bring back rechecking alignment sometimes you might have to try a couple times but it should work. Tighten the bolts and again recheck If not let me know and I will find a manual for you to download
