  • 12" Chop Saw Alignment??

    I just replaced my factory blade with a Ridgid T3 Coated 60 tooth Combo Blade. It cuts through wood like butter. I should have changed blades a year ago.
    I just noticed that my cuts aren't coming out at 90 so I put a sqaure up to it and sure enough the blade is is out of alignment with the fence, How do I adjust the blade and fence to get it back to cutting like butter and "being 90 degrees"? It's a model MS12502 12" Compound Miter Saw
    Measure twice...Cut once..I always forget that one!

    Sounds like the fence or blade is out of alignment. There should be a section in your owners manual that explains how to adjust these two areas.

      I tried to go to the good ol' book but it seems to be MIA. Know where I can get one on line?

        Is that the same as the current MS-1250LZ? If so, here's a link to the PDF of the owners manual. (right click, save as...)

        If not, here's a link to the manuals from the service page:

          Thanks: I found a manual that was closer than the LZ and I will try it out tonight. Should be an easy fix.....
