    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.

    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?

    I would be pleased if FC at least did a trial of printing A pattern on regular sized text and also providing a scale up factor. Their resistance to do anything if a real pain. It was a similar lack of action with the website that resulted in lost viewers.

    I think Kelly did that because I wrote a letter to the editor complaining about an article in the last addition. It was the article about staying connected online and it didn't mention the FC forum....

    The fastest I've ever seen one of those 3d deer cuts was by Rick Hutcheson. That man was super fast when we was working the shows.

    Here he is much more recently, and a bit slower:
