I’ve got a 1999 Ridgid TS. When I first assembled it, I had to adjust the “carriage” or something like that, to make the blade perfectly parallel to the table/slots, and after that it cut absolutely perfectly. A couple of moves later, the owner’s manual is long gone, and the blade is ever so slightly out of adjustment. I can’t see any obvious adjusting bolts. Any hints?

I’m guessing that your saw is the TS2412. If so, here’s the TS2412 Manual.

Dave, If you mention the model of your saw you’ll get specific advice. If you search table saw adjusting or table saw tuning or tune up you will the information you need. Good luck. -Jack

syenefarmer, thanks, I think you guessed my TS model correctly. Sorry I didn’t specify that. This is exactly what I needed.
