Tablesaws are so sturdy and powerful that they seem not to need any special attention. But like any complex tool, they develop flaws that can erode performance. Keeping your saw clean, lubricated, and properly adjusted will make it safer, more accurate, and easier to use. If your tablesaw suffers from blade wobble, stiff adjustments, inaccurate cutting angles, jerky starts and loss of power, or if you simply want to head off those problems before they ever happen, follow Roland Johnson through this thorough tablesaw tune-up.
