My jet proshop table saw just started having problems out of nowhere. My saw wasn’t makin square 90• cuts, I checked with my woodpeckers saw gauge and found it was off about .010 so I readjusted and got it to within .001 I started making cuts and noticed again it wasn’t cutting square. So I checked with the saw gauge again and this time it was out .020, I tried to find the problem and realized as I move the blade up and down the indicator started moving up to .010, after a ton of tests I realized that the blade was doing it more at the back then at the front and that the blade was tilting very slightly causing the change. So basically the problem is that when I move the blade up and down the blade toes in towards the back and slightly angles about .10 of a degree. I have seen that people have had the same problem particularly on the grizzly 0715p which is the exact reason why I didn’t buy the grizzly. What a coincidence. Has anyone that had these issues fixed them or just sent the saw back. I would like to keep the saw if possible I’m very happy with it Other then this problem which we all know needs to be taken care of

Has anything vibrated loose underneath?
Sounds like something isn’t as tight as it should be.

No I’ve been in and out of the saw for about four hours trying to figure out exactly what’s going on. It’s like something is bent causing it to toe in the back.

Sounds like a machining issue in the carriage pivot
area. Could be the bolt could be made a bit tighter
and remove some of the play.

After taking the table off I see the problem but it’s not going to be something I can fix unless jet walks me through it. Does anyone know how it works when you need them to look at it? I can’t imagine taking that heavy saw to a service center. Honestly I don’t think I’d have a way to get it there it wouldnt fit in my car. I don’t know if I should be worried about having a useless saw or not. Its less then a few months old so I’m not sure what will happen

Kindly ask them to send a field service tech to zero in on the problem and remedy the situation.

I was hoping that they would do that but wasn sure if they had that type of service. Have any of you had someone come out before?

Have your say...
