  • TS3612 table saw -Anyone else having ripping problems

    My ripped edges are not square the full length of the board. It is not in the setting of the blade because the out of square will vary from one end to the other i.e. 89 to 91 degrees and sometimes the edge will even be a little 'crowned'. It occurs with both a new Ridgid blade and a seldom used (sharp) Freud glueline rip blade.
    Any ideas?

    more info is needed. does this happen with both sheet goods (plywood, mdf, melamine panels, etc.) and dimensional lumber (1x and 2x stock)? the 3612 is an older saw, so did this happen when you first got the saw or is this a recent development? is this phenomenon happening with store bought material or with material you milled yourself?
    there's a solution to every problem.....you just have to be willing to find it.

      Not keeping the workpiece pressed against the fence all the way through the cut could cause what you are describing.

        Outfeed table that is not flat with the saw table will cause the board to rotate as the weight gets to the table. If really out, can cause the board to slide to one side (causing the crowning).

        Another thing that will cause this is twisted lumber.

        Splitter misaligned with blade can also force the cut to run untrue.
