### 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.

### In a 4'x 4' square, cut into 2 triangles, what would be the 3rd side of each triangle?

Hi Carolyn
This is easy peasy.
A squared plus B squared = C squared
So, 4 squared (16) + 4 squared (16)= C squared
C= square root of 32 or 5.66

Link below provides a calculator so you can do it yourself.

### When cutting a bevel across skirting board,I get a curved cut across.

Your piece is not square to the cutting blade and is moving during the cutting process. The direction of the curve tells you which way the piece is moving.

I would think the fence is out of adjustment and or bent. Go to your owners manual and it will describe in detail how to realign tool for a square cut. If you don't have it, get back to me with the brand and model number and I will try and locate one for you.

### My felker tile master xl is cutting out of square

A dull blade or lack of water will cause this issue. Instead if cutting cleanly,excess friction will cause the blade to ride up the sides of the cutting channel. This action pulls on the tile causing an un-square cut.

### I don't know what all the lines and numbers mean on the Stanley 46-071 Quick Square.

I used a framing square for every day for years and frankly I never knew all the lines either.
At fixya they say 'real' experts don't provide a link but instead explain every detail to answer the question.

However in this case, the best detail is the following:
Do a google search for 'how to use a framing square.'

http://www.carpentry-pro-framer.com/framing-square.html

After reading about the framing square, if you have a specific question how to use it, then add a comment and I will help fill out the details. For example if the terminology is confusing.

Here's my favorite framing square tip:
Put the square on the edge of a piece of plywood.
Hold the pencil at a mark.
Then slide the square along the plywood while holding the pencil, and it makes a long straight line. It takes some practice.

Here's another tip:
Sometimes when you cut a piece of wood, the power saw blade tears up the wood.
This is true with your hardwood cuts.
So let's say I am going to cut a 1x6 oak across the grain.
Oak is brittle and it chips with a crosscut, especially with a dull blade.
Use the square to draw a line across where you want your cut.
Bring the square back just a little from the mark ... maybe 1/32 inch ... then score the wood with a sharp utility knife.
Let the blade run along the square for a nice straight line.
Now when you cut your board, and the oak chips out, the little chips stop at the score line.

### How do i adjust air pressure cut out

Square d recommends that the pressure switch be adjusted to specifications of the particular switch (which is sold in pressure ranges preset at the factory). The switch will be erratic it adjusted out of the factory setting range.
From Square D: (adjust the desired cut-in pressure first, then cut-out)
Cut-in: The large spring controls the cut-in pressure. To make adjustments, turn the nut clockwise (compressing the spring) to raise the cut-in point or counterclockwise to lower the point of cut-in.
Cut-out: The small spring is the differential adjustment and controls the cut-out pressure. To raise the cut-out pressure turn the small nut clockwise (more differential); to lower the cut-out pressure turn counterclockwise.

### I HAVE THE JET 414458 HVBS SAW.THE SAW CUTS ROUND STOCK CROOKED.IT LOOKS LIKE THEBLADE IS IN CONTACT WITH THE STOCK AT THE START OF THE CUT AND ABOUT .250 AT THE END OF THE CUT THE STOCK IS 1" IN DIAMETER

There are two possible reasons for your band saw to cut crooked.
1 is the set on one side of the saw blade has worn down and you need to change your blade, or
2 your band saw blade is not square to the bed of your band saw.

If the blade is brand new and it still cuts crooked then you need to square the blade to the bed. To check if the blade is square to the bed, lift the head of the saw up a couple of inches and take a square and set it on the bed. Slide the square up to the blade and to see if there is a gap between the edge of the square and the blade. Try to pick a spot on the blade where the tooth is straight or bent away from the square. If there is a gap you'll need to move both blade supports in or out until there is no gap between the edge of the square and the blade.
If you are unable get it squared yourself, contact the place you bought the saw from. They maybe willing to send a service tech out to do it for you. Some band saw blade makers are also willing to send a service tech out to correct any problems that you may have. Lennox is one such company that may send a service tech if you are using their blades.
Hope this helps you,
