Delta 36-725 bevel sticker fell off

Hello fellow forum members. Well, I am so excited to have purchased my first ever table saw, the Delta 35-725. I have not completed the assembly yet and I just noticed that the bevel measurement curved sticker, that is on the front panel, fell off and is on the floor.

I want to make sure that the guide is accurate. I'm sort of freaking out now that it will not be true. I have not gone through any square/tuning steps yet.

How can I assure that the sticker is put back on correctly?

Thanks!!!

Speaking for myself, I wouldn't worry too much about it. I use it as a guide, but use a protractor, etc., to set any critical angle that I need to cut.

I'm not familiar with your specific saw, but there are typically stops somewhere in the mechanism for 90 & 45 degrees. Once you get the saw set up accurately, you should be able to line the sticker up so it matches those settings.

I'd never trust a sticker, I don't know that Id even put it back on, instead check with a protractor every time your going to set a bevel cut.

The tools don't make the craftsman....

Thank guys, that makes sense. I was just thinking about getting one of the magnetic angle finders. Are they any good? Reliable? If so, do you recommend a brand?

Thanks!

I have the wixey version. It's good for getting vary close or for odd angles, but I never trust anything but a good triangle for standard angles anyhow.

First, if it was a brand new saw I would contact Delta for a new replacement. What ever adhesive used on the sticker didn't work. As far as re-installing it set the saw on 90 degrees and double check it with a square. Then place the sticker where the indicator will read 0.

Is there not a pointer that is adjustable that you move once you have the blade set at 90 degrees to the table?

mine fell off as well - right out of the box. switch not yet ever used,,, on the floor.

it's put on with 3M double sticky tape - so the tape may(?) be "good" but the execution sucks.
it's like plastic stuff - works well for a while but it does not last.

the saw does have 90 & 45 "stops" - supposedly pre-set at the factory. don't trust that... mine are way off.
as was the blade heel.
as was the kerf knife.
and the 90' indicator marks are not adjustable.

My Wixey unit came today....looks really nice! I also called Delta and they are sending me a new bevel guide sticker just in case. Ideally, I will always use the Wixey unit. Now, if I can just find some time to finish assembling the rails and the rest of the saw! I have some things to build!!!
