  • Porter Cable 16" Table adjustment

    I just bought the Porter Cable 16" Scroll Saw. It was already put together except for the stand. The table is no where close to perpendicular to the blade when set at zero degrees. The manual does not give any instructions on how to calabrate the table to zero. Does anyone know how?

    Use the block of wood trick. cut about a 1/8" cut into the wood then pull the wood away from the saw and slide it around to the back of the blade and see if the cut lines up with the blade. If it doesn't then drop one side of the table just a little and try again. If the cut angle gets worse then drop the other side a bit and see if you can get it just right.
    Pacifism is great, as long as everyone is participating.

      I have used all sorts of methods for putting on patterns. The only time I put a pattern directly on the wood is on Intarsia as the shaping process removes it. I only use blue tape under the pattern on very small projects.

      I Use clear removable contact paper (shelf liner) on the wood and...

      I agree about how it was advertised, but it is my own fault, I know better. Just for curiosity I may strip the paint off and see how true the plate is.

      The good thing is that while I had my saw blade off I cleaned it sprayed Crud cutter on it let it sit then wiped it off with a skotchbright...
