If I read this right the fence is not square with the blade and if so on the backside of the tool you will find 2 hex head bolts that need loosened and the fence run up against the blade, push/pull fence until it is square front to back and snug up the bolts, run the fence away and try again. I always check a couple times, when sure it is square tighten bolts and this should take care of your problem. Let me know if you need more assistance and if I have helped you would you please vote accordingly. Thank you

I bought this saw and had this issue at the start, but it sorted out itself. I don't know how, but it now fully locks down without any issue.

I did a 45 degree bevel cut with my Dewalt portable table saw and now I can not get the blade back to a 90 degree position, any thoughts?


Did you check to see if the saw has a locking nut on the front of the bevel gauge handle? Its possible you just locked it into position and forgot to unlock.

How do i square the table to the fence on a dewalt table saw?


Normally we adjust the rip fence so that it toes out 0.10 mm over the lenghth of the rip fence. Some models have to have the trunion shimmed or the table removed/adjusted to achieve this. The toe out ensures no binding but doesn't effect the measuring. Note. adjusting the trunion is a large job.

Blade is slightly closer to fence in back causing the material to kick back.


Hi Ken,
Sounds like you need to to adjust your fence.I use the blade from a combination square.Place the steel blade next to the saw blade(between the carbide teeth).Next loosen the fence lock,loosen the two hex bolts on the rear pinion assembly so that the fence can move side to side.Move the fence up to the combo blade and adjust the fence and lock the fence lock.Check for blade and fence for true.Tighten the hex bolts at the rear pinion bearing assembly. Thank You for choosing FixYa.com.

The fence in not sitting square to the table. If you place a square against the fence and the table there is a gap of about 2 mm and I don't how to fix it.


Does your saw have an adjustable/extension table. If so look on the backside where the other gear is located on a DeWalt there are 2 bolts holding this in place, what I do is loosen them up and with the square move the fence till it squares up and then snug the bolts, move the fence away and bring it back again to see if it repeats to square, if so tighten up, if not try again, if you don't have this gear give me the brand and model number and I will look into it further

Blade Alignment?


ok yep your blade is out of alignment with the fence. It is closer to the fence at the rear than the front. You need to make the modification or adjustment to your fence, if it allows that, and then worry about the miter slots later (which should be adjusted miter slot to blade, not miter slot to fence). You might be able to adjust the miter slot to blade by moving the actual table and then securing witht he table mount bolts. Check your manual for how to align the fence.

You do want to fix that though as it can be potentially dangerous and result in kickback of the workpiece which is a rather SCARY thing, and very dangerous.

I HAVE JUST BOUGHT AN OLD DEWALT DW1201 RADIAL ARM SAW WHICH DID NOT HAVE A CUTTING TABLE ONLY THE METAL FRAME. COULD YOU PLEASE TELL ME WHERE I CAN AQUIRE AN OWNERS MANUAL AS I AM HAVING QUITE A BIT OF...


Normally DeWalt owners manuals are available from DeWalt ServiceNet (Click here),
But I have been unable to get any hits on that model number when I search the site. and I'm thinking you have probably purchased one of the older cast iron models, a 12 or 14", am I right?
Sometimes I've had luck finding manual for older machines at this link, but in your case I wasn't able to turn anything useful up there either...
In general, those saws had a two piece table, with a strip of 3/4" ply or particle board about 3-4" or so wide in back, and a wider piece in front, both about 3-4' wide. Between the two, on edge, sat a fence, approx.2 1/2" tall. The back table was sized so that the fence would be located in the correct reference to the blade, i.e. in front of the blade when the saw was pushed all the way back against its stop.. Then the thumbscrew clamps on either side of the table would squeeze the fence between the back section and the front section of the table.. The leveling screws beneath are used to level the table with respect to the path of the saw along the arm, so that, e.g., a tooth of the blade just skims along barely touching along its entire path of cut...
You can probably learn the correct sequence of adjustments for squaring the blade vertically and horizontally and adjusting for heel by examining other radial arm saw manuals, or perhaps consulting books on the subject...
Here's a link to an online forum on the subject
I haven't actually seen this book, but it looks interesting...Mr Sawdust
And finally, if you check back issues of Fine Woodworking online or at your local library, there are bound to be some articles on radial arms saws to help you along...
Sorry I couldn't hook you up with a manual, but I hope this helps... Good luck!


I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

Dewalt 10" table saw, when ripping jambs @ back of guide?


Without knowing the full problem, (theheader is cut off) I would ask are you using the fence to help you rip? and when does the board jamb? If it jambs toward the back of the saw the guide might not be square with the blade. I would unplug it and put something that you know is square on the front edge of the blade away from the teeth and adjust the fence so that it is just snub then lock down the table and move the square to the back of saw, it should move with no resistance. If it does then the fence is out. What you would need to do if this is the case is align the fence to the blade, on the back of the saw are 2 10MM bolts that you need to loosen put your square at the front again and lock down the handle with that done move the square to the back and tap the rail on the back side to move tighter or looser and then lock down the bolts. What I do is move the fence away and then back and start all over again to make sure nothing shifted. It sounds more involved than it is. Let me know if this cures your problem
