Hello I built cove molding on a craftsman 10inch saw and than I up grade to cabinet saw it a delta x5 and when I went to build some cove molding on the delta I found that the blade does not raise straight up it come up more like it pivoting up from the back so when I cut the molding I have to keep find center of the blade every time I raise the blade has any one had this problem and what did you do so you didn’t have to keep move your jig every time you raised the blade thanks

I MIGHT have a solution.
Raise the blade to it’s final cutting depth.
Set the guides. Then remove one.
Lower the blade below the table.
Cut some laminate strips the EXACT width of your stock. Maybe you should do this first if you have but one table saw.
Stack 3 or 4 or 5 pieces against the remaining guide.(or what ever you need to get up to your starting depth)
Clamp the laminate on both ends.
Reinstall the previously removed guide in place, tight against the laminate
Turn on the saw and raise the blade 1/2” or so past the final depth, cutting through the laminate. I’d do this step a few times to insure the blade doesn’t contact the laminate any longer. Or, you could move the guides and widen the cut.
Rest the blade depth.
Remove the clamps from the laminate.
Make your first cove cut, then remove one piece of laminate and continue coving and removing tiill you’ve reached the depth you want.
You may have to loosen one guide to remove the laminate after each cut. But, it will go right back where it was, tight against the remaining laminate.

I hope this helps and if anyone has a better solution to this interesting problem, PLEASE speak up.

In 1990 I wrote an article on how to do that with a simple jig. This is how we did it before all the jigs came on the market. It doesn’t say in the article but it was assumed that the fence was just a board clamped to the table top. That was the only way of doing it back then.

Thanks everyone I thing Bentlyj is right I never thought about that I will give that a try Bigike you should give it try to I think that a good idea after looking more at how the blade on my saw raise it raise in ark I know that some will stay I’m crazy but it does it ark up from the back and when raise the blade is move up and forward just enough to throw off the center of blade to your fence or jig thanks

Hi Ike,
Like I said, it MIGHT be a solution. But, Bentlyj’s solution is certainly a better one and far less work. More sane, also. I wonder about the width, though. If the blade pivots, as Woodman suggests, wouldn’t it be a skewed and maybe too wide of a cove?
