Peter,
This is a common characteristic of modest sized band saws. If the problem has been increasingover time with everything the same (same blade, same tension, same height adjustment, same guide bushing settings, same material) then it's time for a new blade or resharpening, or at least a good blade cleaning. However, you might be able to improve things by increasing the blade tension. Or you might use a blade with bigger teeth when cutting thicker material. If you have to push pretty hard to make the cut, it could be dull, or the blade has too small of teeth for the material you are cutting. Lots of teeth in contact, means you have to push harder to get the right pressure on each tooth, which means more blade deflection. Plus the gullets (space between the teeth) might be too small to accommodate enough sawdust. good luck

How do I alligne the blade to the miter fence on my table saw. delta 10" no.34-670. thanks gregg


Just performed the same task on another brand table saw. un-sungged the bolts holding the table to the saw frame and tapped corners of the table while measuring distance from the mitre slot to the lead and tail of the fully extended saw blade (not from the teeth) calibrated to a perfect 90 degrees position. I figured out how to use a digital miter gauge to measure the distance from the blade to the edge of the mitre slot. You can tap appropriate corners to align.

Note when you are in alignment, re-tighten the bolts a little at a time, measuring and tapping as you go.

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.

Adjust angle of band saw blade to align with fence


Typically the fence is attached to the table and the table can be angled to create a bevel.

Using a square, align the table so it's square to the blade. Assuming your fence is square to the table vertically, you're good.

With most bandsaws I have worked with, there is a positive stop (typically just a bolt - the head acts as the stop) underneath the table so when you tilt the table, you can return it to flat without having to re-square everything up every time. Once you've got things square, make sure to adjust the positive stop too.

Be aware you may still have to compensate for drift with your fence, though.

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.

this is usually caused by a dull blade or you need to carefully re-adjust the blade guides

When ripping a board the width becomes narrower toward the end of the board, I have checked the fence and it is aligned correctly. the splitter is also aligned, replaced the blade and it helped did not...


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.

Manual,fence and rail


The manual doesn't seem to be available online at the moment. There's a parts diagram, if that's helpful, or perhaps you can find an alternate site that provides instruction manuals. See this link, in any event.
Otherwise, you might check Woodworker's supply (woodworker.com) for the accessory fence and rail. They carry genuine Delta parts, which should fit your old Rockwell, as well as some aftermarket fences and guides that will usually adapt easily to fit a 14" bandsaw. The 14" Rockwell is one of the industry standards, and many woodworker catalogs carry fences that will bolt on with a minimum of fuss.
I recommend you do a web search on "14" bandsaw fence", and browse the results. You may even find something used to suit your needs.
Good luck, and let us know if this solves your problem or we can provide any further information!

When making a straight cut with my bandsaw, the blade will


Before tuning it up, loosen the guides and wheels away and square the table to the tensioned blade. Then follow these steps in order:
  1. First, adjust the upper wheel so the blade is tracking at the center or just to the front of center of the wheel tire. (You can see this with the cover removed, and adjust it with the nut/wing nut in the back).
  2. Now, make sure the blade guides are adjusted so they don't deflect the blade to either side (when looked at from the front), so they contact the blade just behind the gullet of the teeth, but not against the hooked teeth themselves, and are just tight enough to allow the blade to run freely (including the weld). (If your guides are worn and out of flat, you may wish to dress them on a sander before adjusting them against the blade.) Adjust the guides both above and below the table. At this point, ensure that the guide bar moves up and down easily and locks into position without torqueing the guides against the blade.
  3. Finally, adjust the bearings behind the blade, so they just kiss it, and turn freely when you revolve the bandsaw wheel. They will support the back of the blade when pressure is applied against it during a cut, and help immensely to keep the blade tracking straight.
At this point, check the cut by trying to follow a straght line penciled on a board. Some blades will naturally tend to veer slightly on a diagonal, depending on how they are sharpened, and you may have to adjust your fence to compensate for this "drift".
But if you follow the steps outlined above, and have a good sharp blade to begin with, you should be able to split a line.
If you follow these tips and they prove helpful, please let us know your problem is solved. Otherwise, give us a little more detail and someone will be happy to follow up.

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.

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
