Таble Saw Basics. part5

Crosscut a board with the miter gauge set at zero and use your square to check the squareness of the end of the board (Fig. 8).

Now check the blade for a true 45 degree incline by loosening the tilt handle and cranking the blade over to the left as far as it will go. Use your combination square (less the blade) to check the angle of the saw blade (Fig. 9). Again, the blade should rest flush against the inclined face of the square and the pointer should read 45 degrees. If necessary, reset the left-hand stop collar at the back of the machine. Crosscut a board with the blade inclined and check the accuracy of this edge miter cut.

Finally, let’s turn our attention to the rip fence which, if misaligned, will cause a binding and kickback of the workpiece. The fence, when unlocked, should ride smoothly back and forth across the table. At any point on the table, it shoud be exactly parallel to the saw blade.

Since we now know that the saw blade is parallel to the tableslots, we can use the slots as a guide in establishing fence alignment. Set the fence spanning the right side of the table and seated on the front and rear guide bars. Slide the fence until it rests along the edge of the table slot. If it’s not parallel with the slot, adjusting screws (usually on front top) are loosened, the fence aligned and the screws alternately tightened. Fence alignment should be checked frequently as some types go out of adjustment easily. part6
