Question about Black & Decker Black decker Firestorm Drilllcircjigsan Kit Fswd3

1 Answer

When I try to cut with my saw, the blade bends so that the cut is at an angle. Because of this angle cut, it is difficult to follow a line but even if I can follow the line, the angle cut through a 3/4 inch piece of wood is terrible. I am sure it is a tension issue but I do not know what to do to correct it. Your assistance would be appreciated.

This is a common issue with jig saws. There are sometimes larger blades, but all seem to distort to some degree. The only real solution is to go slow enough to allow the blade to return to it's normal shape...Essentially, is sounds like another tool would work better, but often you are scrolling with a jig saw and circular saw (for example) would not work.

The other workaround involves several cuts, so the final cut is removing much less material.

How to make a 45 degree angle cut


1. place your moulding inside the box.
2. place the tip of the blade in the first slot and the back end in the third slot. thats a 45 degree angle.
3. to figure which way you need your angle place your moulding at the corner and mark in the corner continuing the line to the outside edge. all you should have to do is cut this mark.
4. if your piece is too difficult to first place in the corner use a measuring tape and be sure that when you are cutting that the piece is facing the correct way so not to cut the wrong angle.

Craftsman radial arm saw will not cut straight. Even when I line up the blade with a square and try to cut a piece of wood with a straight line it cuts at an angle or a bevel instead of straight. Any...


All of the adjustment locks should be tight. Check the arm and saw motor cradle for looseness by trying to push/pull the blade, cradle, and arm in various directions. A bevel cut indicates that the motor/cradle is tilting. An angle cut is controlled by the rotation of the arm. Check for looseness of the cradle bearings that allow the cradle/motor to roll along the arm. If you don't have the owner's manual for this saw, go to: www.searspartsdirect.com and enter the complete model number minus the decimal point--this will take you to a series of drawings that detail every replaceable component of the saw. The owners manual should be available there. There is a rather involved series of adjustments involved to make this saw work correctly. Hope this helps!

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.

Looking for help scouts have a carpentry merit badge from the 50s they talk about using a BEVEl and a Miter tools can you help


The bevel is an angle fiding tool. it consists of a wooden section about 4" long with a swivel bolt at one end connected to a slotted metal blade (similar to a 1 foot steel ruler). The bolt has a wing nut and bolt to allow loosenig to allow the blade to rotate and slide to the required angle where it is locked into position using the wing nut.
The mitre is a wooden block with slots cut into it at pre determined angles. ie 45 degrees. When cutting a mitre joint the wood is placed against the block and the saw follows the line of the slot cutting the 45 degree angle.
Hope this makes sense and good luck

Cutting straight


The tension on the blade. the position of the guide rollers, and the condition of the blade are all important to get a straight cut. You might want to try lowering the guide rollers down close to the wood being cut. good luck.

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.

Grinder problem


* The base plate can be tilted to make angled cuts. Most saws adjust from 90 degrees to slightly less than 45 degrees, making it possible to cut bevelled ends on boards for corning attachments, hip-roof rafter cuts, and even miters. Most saws are equipped with a thumbscrew or lever to loosen the bolt which keeps the saw blade on the correct angle for the cut you are making, located on the front of the saw. Some are also equipped with a scale which indicates the blade angle, from '0' (90 degrees, or square to the board surface) to 45 degrees. * The blade can be set to the depth required for individual cuts, from less than 1/8 inch to the full depth the blade is capable of penetrating. The lever or thumbscrew which locks the base plate at the desired height is usually located at the rear of the motor on the left side. * Many circular saws are equipped with a ripping fence, to guide the blade as you make a rip cut along the edge of a board, giving you a straighter, parallel cut. * Dust ejector. A few newer saws are equipped with a dust ejector to blow the sawdust away from the operator's face and from the mark where the cut is being made. * Laser tracking light. Some newer saws are equipped with a laser that projects a bright, red line down the path of the blade travel. These can also be purchased to retrofit on older units that are not factory equipped with them. * Blade guard. This should be considered a essential safety feature on any saw, and has two parts, the fixed guard over the top of the blade, and the floating guard, which rolls out of the way as the saw is pushed into the work piece. Some have a handle so the blade guard can manually be lifted for plunge cutting or easier viewing of the cutting mark.
