  • rough cutting at the start of cut

    My TS3650 has started doing something new. The first 1/2 in. of a crosscut is rough and out of square. The remainder of the cut is smooth and square. Any ideas.

    Could be that when you start into the cut the blade is moving your workpiece ever so slightly. Try making some sample cuts and apply a little more force on the workpiece back into your miter guage. Or, it could be something completely different.

      Does your miter fence fit the slot in the table tight or is it sloppy?

        I have tried more pressure, the cut is made with a crosscut sled. And the rest of the cut is perfect

          Check the blade for run out. Could be that it has run out and as you get past the 1/2 inch mark the stock holds it true.
