I am just setting up my new Skil bandsaw, and the table is not level--won't go to 0 degrees. Is there an adjustment I'm missing?

Usually there is a stop bolt under the table that you can adjust so that you are able to zero out the table. it should have a lock nut so that when you get the table set to where you want it you can lock down the bolt so that the table is easily re set after moving the table for an angle cut.

I have the same problem. The table is level front to back but not left to right. I do not see a specific bolt for this direction. The table gets worse (left to right) as I tighten down the front to back tilt lock. As I read these posts, I'm learning that I just bought an entry level tool. I hope I do not suffer buyers remorse on this one.

How to adjust the blade on skil bandsaw 3385 that will not stay on


This is one of most common problems with Skil saws. Make sure that you set the correct tension and track the blade properly. It could also be problem on the blade specially on the weld. I suggest you visit bandsawblog.com for helpful band saw techniques and sawblade.com . I get my blades from them.

Blade is not square to table


There are manuals for the Skil 3400 available online.
Centering the blade to the table simply requires a screwdriver, a good square, and some patience. Basically you're loosening up the points that hold it vertically and horizontally (front to back), checking them against the table with your square, and then tightening them up when everything looks nice and ninety degrees.

It's not the best saw in the world, but with a little work, I've been able to get it to make 90 degree cuts and perfect miters with a miter sled and a cross-cut sled I built using aluminum (I think?) T-shaped replacement runners that would normally be used for the worthless miter guide that comes with it.

Bandsaw stops cutting


the pressure you are pushing could be too hard or a dull blade. what is the HP of it? I use one for cutting metal bar up to 6 inch and wood. the HP of mine is 15 horsepower and wood will cut quick when solid steel is very slow. of course mine is industrial size with a 3 foot depth

Have a Skil #3305-01 table saw. Need to set blade


The jam nut is on the end of the bolt you are adjusting, directly underneath the table. The easiest way to get to it is to place the saw on it's left side, and move the saw blade to the maximum bevel position (45 degrees). You can then reach up -directly underneath the location of the bolt on top - and access the jam nut.

To be clear - the bolt you are tightening is about 2 inches long with the jam nut on the end with the purpose of tightening the bolt into place once you have established the correct adjusted position.

And yes, the directions for this step were terrible.

Bought model 3400 skil table saw. have no manual. can't find control for tilting blade. how do i tilt blade


This model does not have a knob on the side.
There is only a locking lever on the front next to a single rotating wheel for height adjustments. To tilt the blade simply twist the locking lever to the left and push the height adjustment wheel to the right. It can be a bit stiff at times to move.
