  • 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.

      My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

      None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

      What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
      The bags seem easier on the surface.
      But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

      Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.
