Two years ago I purchased my first wood working tool, a table saw. I bought the ryobi rts21 10” table saw. I haven’t used it much because it is very cumbersome. I can’t seem to get the blade parallel with miter slots. I followed the steps in the manual but it seems like it is doing nothing. Does anyone else out there have this table saw and seem to have the same issue?

Is your blade brand new?

If you cant get it, buy a differentone, and sell that one.

unlock the miter adjustment wheel. The old craftsman saw need that wheel unlocked to get the trunnion to move.

The OP was asking for a serious reply. Sometimes people forget what it was like just starting out.
