How would you like to guarantee that your blade is 100% at 90° to the table Surface? Scroll Saw Tune Up - Blade to Table Surface How would you like to do this check at any time and not require any special tools to do it? I found this wonderful tip on the internet I would like to share it with you. I am not the originator of the photographs or the video and credit will be given to the originator at the end of this post. The procedure is quite elementary. Step 1 - Take a block of wood and make a shallow cut. Use a piece of wood as wide as you scroll saw can handle. Step 2 - Rotate the board around, do not flip the board, and check your shallow cut against the blade. Step 3 - Adjust the angle of the table surface by one half (1/2) of the difference, lock the table in place and make another shallow cut. Repeat this process as many times as necessary until the cut line matches the blade angle. Now your blade is 100% at 90° to the table surface. Quick simple and easy - no tools required. The originator of the photographs and video can be found on YouTube, search for ... YouTube Video Title: Scroll Saw Blade Alignment By: Scroll Saw Paradise Hosted By: Bloodworth aka Tripple B.

Udie Good info and video I use that method on my bandsaw and have a block of hardwood cut at 90 deg for my scrollsaw and just place it next to the blade before I start.
