Accurize your tablesaw for absolutely straight, smooth and burn-free cuts.When my contractor's saw was new, it cut perfectly.Over the years, it gradually went out of whack.I'll show you what I did to accurize it so that my blade cuts true again.
Precisely aligning your saw's blade doesn't require any special tools, but it sure helps to have a dial indicator.An inexpensive one costs only $22.Some special hardware is also a big help when you make small adjustments under the table (see 'PALS Simplifies Alignment,' below).
You don't need this hardware to follow my procedures, but I guarantee it will save you time and frustration.Read more about dial indicators and precision instruments for woodworkers.Have you had these problems? Accurizing your saw should solve one or more of these aggravating problems.
With the blade set at 90°, your rip cuts may be burnt (A).On the other hand, your boards may pull away from the fence (B).Wide crosscuts may tail off, out of square (C).But even if those cuts are perfect, you might have similar problems with the blade set at 45° (D).
Before you begin the accurizing procedures, make sure your fence lines up perfectly with the miter-gauge...
