Topic tags/keywords: table saw unisaw blade alignment set up saw question

I need help. I bought a Unisaw on Craig’s List. The saw blade on my Unisaw does not align with the table top. It is out over a 32nd front to back. How do you adjust this?

I am hoping for a QUICK response. The saw is a Delta 36-953. THANKS!

The saw top is held to the base by four bolts, one on each corner. Loosen the four bolts and adjust the top
until it is square if you are lucky. If you are not lucky and the adjustment does not square it up, you will have
to remove the 4 bolts, lift the top off, making sure you noted which way the top has to be adjusted and
enlarge the holes with a rat tail file or some other method enough to allow you to properly adjust the top.
Make sure you have a solid surface to set the top on before you start the removal process. They have an
owners manual available on Ebay for that saw, or you can probably find one you can download in PDF form if
you do a search. It looks like you will need the manual if you want to use this saw.

Manual here, for a 1961 saw, but little has changed, unless you have a later left tilt one.
