Table Saw Tune-Up

An afternoon is all it takes to tune-up your table saw for peak performance and precision results.

Like most things with moving parts, a table saw requires periodic maintenance and upkeep to keep it running at peak performance. Unfortunately, it’s all too easy to put off a tune-up to the point where your cuts aren’t accurate or the controls become stiff and stubborn to adjust. But there is an upside. Keeping your table saw clean, well-adjusted, and lubricated doesn’t take all that much effort, time, or a lot of specialized tools. In a short afternoon, you can have your table saw running great, with smooth and precise cuts with the step-by-step instruction from this article.
