Your problem could be one or more of... 1- Check to see that the motor mounts are secure and the motor is not moving around. 2- Check the shaft that holds the blade for the same problem if the blade is not directly mounted to the motor. If there is any "give" in the above two ways the blade could be held in place, corrections must be made to secure the blade so that it does not "wander" during the cutting procedure. 3- Be sure the fence you are using to guide your wood is set as parallel as possible to the blade so it does not cause the wood to follow another line once the wood being cut goes beyond the cutting blade. There is most likely an alignment procedure you can run through.

Centering saw blade


The most important thing is that the blade and riving knife are centered with each other. If not, you may have to shim the riving knife.

The bolts that hold the carriage under the table are intentionally sloppy so that you can loosen them and align the blade/knife with the miter gauge slots.
Lay a long metal straight edge against the side of a carbide blade teeth with the blade all the way up, and make sure the straight edge is parallel with the miter gauge slots in the table. Then tighten the bolts on the underside.

New blades, new belt.. burning the wood when I try to maky any type of cut


Is the blade the correct one for the type of wood you are cutting?? There will be recommendations on the saw blade. Finer toothed blades are for plywood, etc. Aggressive or large tooth blades are for thicker wood.

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.

check the blade, it sounds like it is burning the wood instead of cutting it. I would recommend using a carbide tipped blade for the hardwood. Let me know if you need more assistnace.

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.

Does the blade go to the right if you place the fence on the opposite side of the blade? If so, then the teeth on one side of the blade are dull. The dull teeth beat into the wood, and the sharp teeth cut when the blade is deflected by the dull teeth, leading the cut further and further from the straight line of cutting. This happens when something dulls the blade, like a nail, a foreign object embedded in the wood like stone, or if you use the wrong blade for the work being done, i.e. using a crosscut blade for consistent rip sawing.
First, get a spare blade or two for the saw, don't depend only on one blade. Use a combination blade to get the best balance from ripping and crosscutting. Then for the dull blade: If it is a steel blade, replace it with a carbide blade - a few dollars more, but well worth the upgrade. If it is a carbide blade, get it sharpened, as they will also get dull, though you can't always see it. If it is a carbide blade, and teeth are broken on it, ask your sawyer (saw sharpener) to determine if it is worth replacing the teeth, or if it is less expensive to replace the blade.
A quality blade will last longer than the least expensive ones, as the materials are better machined, balanced, and finished. Hope this helps.

Use a pencil and straight edge to mark the cutting line on the wood. Place the wood on the saw table and line the mark up with the saw. Place the mark on the right side of the blade to ensure proper cutting. Plug the saw in and put on your safety goggles. Support the wood on the work surface with your left hand, placing it far from the saw blade. Place your right hand on the handle, and push the trigger to start the saw. Move the saw blade down onto the wood. Put constant pressure on the handle to slowly move the blade through the wood. Release the trigger and raise the blade once the cut is complete. Make diagonal cuts in the same manner, by marking the wood and lining the mark up just to the right of the saw blade. Continue as you would for a straight cut. Remove the wood from the saw. Unplug the chop saw and dust the sawdust off. Remove the dust bag from the back and empty it. Vacuum any remaining dust off of the saw.

Blade type


blades are available for different applications. A few common blades include:Steel Blades are inexpensive and work well for cutting softwood. Steel blades dull quickly in hardwood. High-Speed Steel Blades are harder than steel blades and stay sharp longer. Carbide-Tipped Blades are more expensive than other blades, but they stay sharp much longer than steel or high-speed steel.
