Instructions for a Ryobi Portable Table Saw

The Ryobi portable table saw is equipped with a built-in stand with rollers for quick and easy setup. This saw can be used in the same manner as a stationary table saw with the added versatility of transportation and setup on the project location. Setup is as simple as opening the stand and plugging it in. It is equipped with built-in storage space for parts of the saw.

Things You'll Need

  • Framing square
  • Phillips screwdriver

Instructions

    • 1

      Raise the stand where the wheel side is located.

    • 2

      Open the stand, allowing the table saw to rest on the stand leg, and lock the saw base to the stand leg. Do not plug the saw into the power source until you are familiar with all the instructions.

    • 3

      Remove the rip fence from the fence hangers located on the right side of the saw base. The rip fence is used to guide boards lengthwise through the saw blade.

    • 4

      Place the rip fence on the table saw fence bar with the fence lock in the vertical position. The fence lock is located on the rail end of the rip fence. The lock enables the fence to stay stationary during cutting.

    • 5

      Slide the rip fence along the fence bar until the desired measurement is achieved and lock the fence by pressing downward on the fence lock.

    • 6

      Adjust the blade height by turning the height adjustment knob located on the front of the table saw base.

    • 7

      Set the bevel of the saw blade by turning the bevel adjustment handle, located on the left side of the saw. Read the bevel scale behind the height adjustment handle and tighten it at the desired angle. A bevel is an angle of the saw blade that is determined by lateral blade movement from a vertical position.

    • 8

      Remove the miter gauge from the storage holder under the saw's right-side table extension. The miter gauge is used to guide boards across the grain through the saw blade.

    • 9

      Place the miter gauge in either slot in the table saw surface.

    • 10

      Adjust the miter gauge by fully raising the saw blade. Miter gauges are not always precisely calibrated, which makes this step paramount in precision crosscuts and miter cuts.

    • 11

      Loosen the angle locking bolt (located on the degree scale of the miter gauge) and place the framing square against the blade, flat on the table.

    • 12

      Slide the unlocked miter gauge up to the perpendicular side of the square and tighten the miter gauge lock. This enables the miter square to cut a precise 90-degree angle.

    • 13

      Loosen the angle indicator screw on the degree scale of the miter gauge and adjust it until the point of the indicator aligns with the "90" mark. Tighten the screw. This procedure allows for precise cuts of any angle, as the indicator is now set exactly.

Tips & Warnings

  • Watch for pinch points at the folding stand and where the table locks to the stand.
  • Wear eye protection and work gloves when working with a table saw.
