Help with Miter Saw Adjustments and Planner lines
When you use your miter saw to cut 45 degree angles (like for a picture frame) you should be able to set the saw to cut perfect angles so that the two peices of wood fit together with no gaps and it is square. I'm having trouble getting my saw adjusted correctly. Have the blade square to the bed of the saw (90 degrees), but the 45 is still off. I can put the two peices together and nice joint, but when using a capenter square to keep the edges straight, there is a slight gap in the joint. Any advise? Using an old Delta.
Also, on my plainner, it leaves lines in the wood after passing through the blades. I did open up the case and check the blades and I don't see or feel any dents or chips in the blade. Also cheecked and cleaned the rollers. Have only used the plainner for about 4-5 hours using cherry and hard maple. Is there anything else it could be other than swapping out the blades?
Thanks for your time.
