Quick Tips

A Choose A Straightedge. The

straightedge should have enough height and length to butt up against several teeth on the saw blade.

A Line Up the Cut. To make a quick and accurate cut, you can simply line up the workpiece with the left edge of the tape.

Miter Gauge Alignment Mark

Whenever I need to cut a number of pieces using the miter gauge on my table saw, I find that I often spend quite a bit of time between cuts aligning the blade with my cut marks. So to speed up the process and still make accurate cuts, I applied a mark to my saw table to help me quickly line up these cuts.

I didn't want a permanent mark on the table of my saw, so I used a piece of blue painter's tape as my marker. The tape is easy to see and can be quickly removed without leaving sticky residue behind.

First, I laid a strip of tape about 2" in front of the blade. I wanted the edge of the tape aligned with the teeth of the blade, so I used a long piece of aluminum angle to butt up against several of the teeth. Next, cut along the straightedge and remove the left side of the tape. Then just align the mark on the workpiece with the left edge of the tape and make the cut.
