Not cutting a straight line anymore. positive stop is at zero. If I put a 4" board on the saw to cut, I will end up 1/16 to 1/8 inch outside my line at one end. I recently replaced the blade and Im wondering if it could be that, but I dont know how the blade can be installed wrong it is just a centre hole that you tighten. Can you please help with this problem Thank you!

I think I have the same problem. Installing a new blade or reinstalling the blade doesnt solve the trouble.

You may have not gotten the blade on the arbor correctly, it sound like it is crooked, but if you look at the blade while it is spinning, you should see that. it is most likely the blade being crooked in the arbor, take the blade off and reinstall it.

Attach edge guide onto skill jigsaw


I don't know why they even provide edge guides with jig saws, they don't work worth a flip. The problem is that, unlike a circular saw, the direction of cut is unlikely to be 90 degrees from the direction of the mounted edge guide. The blade mounting is not made to ensure that the blade is held exactly straight. When you follow a straight line with your cut you will see that the body of the saw will probably crab a bit sideways like a car that badly needs a wheel alignment. I suppose the edge guide can work on 1/4 inch plywood with an aggressive blade, but that will give you a very rough cut. Much better to draw the line and just follow it visually. If you need to do a lot of this, and you want a nice straight line, use a circular saw. Good luck.

Making a wooden picture frame with perfect corners


Picture frames are very easy to make, but many people make the same very basic mistake that will ruin your frame. It is very important that you follow the carpenters rule of measure twice and cut once. If you don't cut the sides of the frame to be the same length, and you cut the angles of the corners slightly off then when you put it together the final corner won't line up.

The things that you are going to need is a miter saw, some clamps, a backer board and a drafting squares to make sure you have the right angle.

To set up take your backer board and cut off a piece that's around 4 inches to be used as a sliding marker gauge. After cutting it off attach a small piece of wood to keep the slider from shifting around.

With the saw unplugged and turned off clamp the backer board to the back of the saw. To cut the corners of the a frame you need to set the saw to a 45 degree angle. Make sure to check the angle using a drafting square align one side with the backer board and bring down the saw blade align them to make sure its a 45 degree angle. When you think that its right grab yourself a piece of scrap wood and make an initial cut. After cutting the test measure the angle to make sure that it is the right angle.

When you are ready to cut the frame itself take the four pieces of the frame and make an initial cut. Once all the boards have been cut once take your slider marker to the length that you want the sides of the frame to be and clamp it in. Take the first two sides and one at a time line it up with the backer board with the angle on the outside and the cut point against the slider. Turn on the saw and cut the other end. Repeat these steps to cut the other three sides.

After all the sides have been cut use a 90 degree angle to align the corners of the frame. Lay out all the sides of the frame and line them up as tight as you can. To connect them you can use a staple gun to staple the corners together. If you were aligning it and pushing the sides together when you stapled the corners you should have perfectly aligned corners.

Now all that's left is to sand it down and get the inside ready for a picture and stain it if you want.

Setting up a jig saw to cut a straight 1/4 inch


Hi there,

You will need two C clamps and a straight edge,I use a metal yard stick.Whatever you use look down the edge a make sure it's true.

Set up on the line and make sure the blade is going to cut on the waste side of the line.Measure the distance from the edge of the wood to the other side of the jigsaw glide plate and make a mark.Transfer the measurement to the other end.I move the blade up just above the surface so I can set the jig saw on the wood while I get the measurements.The last step is to clamp the straight edge down.Make sure to have the clamps with the handles down.Check under to make sure you won't run into any thing and do a dry run to check for cord hang ups.This is the best way as long as you keep the edge of the bottom jig saw plate against the straight edge.^^^^ Well that's how I do it. good luck

You can all so use the T bar attachment that slides through the bottom plate and clamps down with thumb screws.Personally I like the straight edge.

Neeed to calibrate bevel stop on dewalt 708 compund miter saw. at zero degrees (or 90 really) it is out of square a half degree.


I assume you can find the adjusting screws, but here's how to measure if you have it dead-on: First, confirm repeatability as follows----. Move the saw as if you were going to cut at miter, then move it back to zero. Now cut off the end of a 6 inch (or so) board. Then move the saw again, and move it back to zero. Cut off about 3/4 inch of the same board (make sure you haven't turned the board over). The 3/4 inch piece you have cut off might not be square, but the two cut edges of the 3/4 inch piece should be exactly parallel to each other. Find a way to confirm that. A micrometer or good calipers make this easy, but you may have to improvise - the key is that your check for parallel needs to be more precise than measuring it with eyeballs and a tape measure. Repeat this a couple of times. You may find that you have to be careful about resetting the saw each time so that you can get repeatability. OK, now that you have a repeatable setting turn the board over and take another cut. Any deviation from 0 (or 90) will be doubled and the two cuts will not be parallel. Make your adjustments to the saw until you get two parallel cuts when you flip the board over. And one more thing! This method ASSUMES that the board you are cutting has parallel edges. If you have calipers this is easy to confirm.

Got a coronet band saw and it is not cutting true


Hello,
I am not familar with the Coronet saw and there are alot of reasons your saw may not be cutting true.
- Mark a straight line appx. 1" from the edge on a 2 foot board, using the fence cut the board. Does it stay on the line? if not this is called "Drift"
-Most fences on band saws have a drift adjustment. To adjust mark a board the same as before but this time don't use the fence and saw it down the line about half way, turn off saw with the board in the saw, now slide the fence next to the board. you will see a gap on one end or the other adjust fence to the board(i.e. drift adjustment) now you saw will cut true.
NOTE- on saws that don't have this adjustment you may have to shim the fence to fit.
-If you go to You Tube and look up band saw set up they will cover this in detail.

I hope this helps

I have a 25cc homelite weed trimmer.... the fuel line is loose in the fuel tank... how do i get it back in


You will need the correct size fuel line first. Follow this:

1. Remove the old filter/weight from the fuel tank.
2. Take a new fuel line piece about 8 inches long and cut about a 45 degree angle cut on one end.
3. Lightly moisten the cut end of the fuel line and insert it into the tank from the outside, pushing it in while turning as far as possible.
4. Use a needle nose plyers to reach in and pull the line to the fuel line cap. Cut the line and replace the filter.
5. Pull the line back the way you put it in leaving about 4 inches within the tank and re-attach to the carburetor or primer bulb (depending on the actual model/age)

It will work, but it is extreemly important to have the correct size fuel line to work with.

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.

How to cut a 45 degree angle on wood using a jig saw


use a combination sliding square to mark ecxactly where you want to cut. Measure the distance from the jig-saw blade to the edge of the jig-saw bottom plate. Use this distance to mark another line parralel to the first line. Nail or screew a straight piece of wood on the second line. Put the jig-saw plate against the wood fence and cut your perfect line.

Not cutting in straight line


Normally blade overheating. Improper blade or too few teeth for material, teeth not sharp and/or offset enough for proper width of cut. Teeth must cut wider than blade. Inexpensive blades tend to do this quickly. Other possibility: Bad bearing, check for play with saw unplugged. Blade should have little wobble. Other possibility: Saw body cracked/damaged(allowing shaft to skew) or very cheap saw unable to handle material
