  • Dewalt DWE575 issue

    I bought DWE575, found out the blade doesn't match with any indicators of foot place. that will lose guide when I cut. Could you tell me which indicator guides me to cut straight?
    Do you hve the same problem?

      Pretty simple really. Just line a straight edge up with the blade & see where it lines up. These are not precision tools, so the blade may not line up exactly with any of the lines.

        Thanks. It is weird many indicators on the foot plate, even them not correct at all.

          My problem with the DeWalt planner is that I ordered one and it doesn't seem to be coming in.

            The test to see if the lines are anywhere near accurate would be to cut a straight line in scrap material using a straight edge guide, then see if the lines on the foot plate align as the instructions say. If not and if the saw is new, then maybe take it back to wherever you bought it.

            This is what the owners manual says about the lines :

                Yes, I think that is what it means.

                  The width of your saw blade is usually 1/8", so you will always be removing that amount from whatever your cutting. If you make a line and then cut removing the line you have probably made your board shorter than you intended. Make a mark on the waste side of the cut and err on that side to sneak up on the final dimension. As has been mentioned before, make many practice cuts and you will quickly answer all the questions your asking.

                    Was the blade on the saw when you got it or did you have the blade off. Maybe a washer or shim is missing.

                            Maybe you might think about taking it back to where you bought it, with the receipt and ask them if they will refund it?

                              In 30 odd years of using circular saws for a living, I have never once used the guide you watch the blade on the line that is always spot on.
