Frequently there is a bolt on the handle end of the fence. the bolt moves a tab in or out on the fence that enables you to square your fence. hope that helps

My craftsman miter saw cuts but it is not a straight cut.

Here's an old dude trick that might help.
Safety first! UNPLUG THE SAW.
- Take a framing square and set it against the fence. It should be flush with the fence on both sides of the blade. If not, slide the square to one side and pull the blade down into full cut position, then slide the square against the blade and fence to check for square. If square, slacken the bolts on the other half of the fence and align it with the correct side.
- A bit of messing about should have it lined up just fine.
- If it is off vertically, there should be some alignment possible.
Patience and safety.
You'll get it.

You need to buy fences for your horses but you only have enough for 350 square feet. what is the highest area for 350 sqare feet

Since "square feet" is a measure of area, the area of 350 square feet is 350 square feet.

Or are you asking for the the largest area you can fence off with 350 feet of fencing? With 350 feet of fence material, you could enclose a square 87.5 feet on a side with an area of 7656.25 square feet. Alternatively you could enclose a circular area of a bit more than 9748.24 square feet.

HAVE OLD MAKITA 2708 TABLE SAW HOW DO I SQUARE THE BLADE

Hi rjames16,

Are you wanting to square the blade to the rip fence, to the miter fence or does the blade show runout?

To square the rip fence to the blade, lay a combination square or engineer's square along the blade with the short leg against the closest end of the fence and even with the near end of the blade. Slide the square along the blade so that the short leg is even with the far end of the blade. Loosen the lock knob and move the far end of the fence until it touches the leg of the square. Tighten the lock knob. Recheck and adjust the fence until it is perfectly square to the blade.

Adjust the miter fence to the blade in a similar fashion except that the short leg of the square will lay against the miter fence. Adjust until the long leg is aligned with the blade. The instructions for these adjustments are in the owner's manual.
You can download a copy at this website: http://www.makita.com/en-us/Modules/Tools/ToolSupport.aspx?ID=604

Copy and paste this entire address into your browser and a page will open with 2 Adobe documents. One is for the owner's manual, the other for the parts breakdown.

If you have blade runout, remove it from the saw and lay it flat. Check for warping and if warped, replace it.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

Handie Andie

On my Dewalt table saw when I lock the rack and pinion part its fine on the front of the saw but its way out of square on the other side. But the fence is fine is there an adjustment so it stays square?

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

Rip fence is out of alignment..what do I need to do?

This is the fundamental problem with rip fences on table saws. I don't know what kind of rip fence you have, but most rip fences are adjustable for squareness. However, unless you have a very nice (and expensive) rip fence, they often don't self-align when you move them anyway. If you have the type that clamps at the front and the back of the table, the problem can be overcome by making sure the rip fence is straight before you clamp it in place. The easiest way I have found to do that is to use an adjustable square. Put the front of the rip fence where you want it, then set the adjustable square so that it matches the distance from the miter slot in the table to the fence. Then move the square to the back of the table and move the back of the fence to meet the end of the square. Now clamp it in place and check the front and the back one more time. It's tedious to do this every time you adjust the fence, but you can get a perfectly aligned fence this way. This method assumes that your blade is parallel to your miter slots, which is adjustable too, but you have to get underneath the saw to do that. good luck, Al K

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.

If this answer was useful, please vote. Thanks!

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

How to set fence square to blade.dw705

First if you need an owners manual go to Dewaltservicenet.com and in the middle of the page at the bottom type in your model number and get a copy. OK for setting the fence square, first unplug the tool and make sure that the blade isi good. Get an accurate square. Set the table at 0 or 90 degree for a straight cut depending on your scale. Make sure the blade is straight up and down on the bevel before starting. What you want to do is loosen up the 4 bolts on the back side of the fence enough so you can move the fence with some resistance. Set your square on the left side of the blade and pull or push the fence till it is square with the blade, snug up one of the bolts and then put the square on the right side and check for square, you might have to move it some if square snug up one bolt and recheck the left side again, if ok tighten both bolts and recheck the right side and repeat if OK. I sometimes recheck 3 or 4 times just to make sure. Also I should have mentioned about putting a straight edge across the length of the fence to make sure that it is not bent in some way thereby not allowing you to square the blade. Let me know if you need any more help
