Stupid table saw won't cut...

The blade is sharp I'm sure, but it just keeps burning...

Looks backwards to me as well. That would explain a lot.

I think so the kerf is correct on the left side of opening, so it is correct.

The blade is on backwards with the teeth facing the wrong direction. The angle of the teeth is not cutting into the work, but facing away. The kerf position has nothing to do with this issue.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

if you feed from the full piece of plywood, isn't that right?

Maybe slightly...haha. i was going to post it jokingly the other day. Then I went full retard and in the midst of changing the blade like 15 times while working on a project, I actually did it unintentionally and tried to cut a piece of ply. Realized it immediately and felt pretty dumb.

Just working on some shop cabinets for skill building as I've never made cabinets before and would like to eventually build kitchen cabinets.

I've done the same thing, but noticed it before the "burning wood" part. I also just put a chainsaw chain on backwards a few days ago and DID try to make a cut... unsuccessfully. :frown2:

Noticed the label on the rip fence and what appears to be the plywood outfeed table, so the blade really does look to be on backwards. Should have been smoke!.

I've gone out to find myself. If I return before I get back, have me wait for me.

Works great that way to cut aluminum, though!

I've done the same thing, but noticed before I put the nut on.

And have a few more, that I'm completely not willing to share...

Welcome a board.
I have done the same thing...once!:smile3:

That saw (and fence) looks just like my Grizzly 1023.

...and your cabinets look good.

LOL, I had to do exactly that for a 150í metal roof on a prefab metal shop. I was a fraction of an inch out of square when I laid out the foundation, but I didnít really think it would make a difference. The walls all went up with ease although the roof was another story. That fraction of an inch made the front roof line look like a sawblade so I reversed the blade in my WormDrive saw and cut a straight line down the whole 150 ft.
I never heard the end of that from my coworkers.

Iím a die hard DIY guy. Donít tell me to hire someone for what I can do myself.

Cutting metal with a carbide blade turned backwards can be very dangerous. I am guilty of doing that until I noticed some of the carbide teeth had come off in the process.
