Tuning your fence is an important part of woodworking.And in case you didn't already know, tuning your fence is done by aligning the fence with your table saw's miter slot, not the blade.Note - Aligning your table saw's blade is another process I explain here.
Below, I'm going to show you 2 ways you can tune your fence so you know that it's perfectly in line with your miter slot.Method 1 - Scrap Wood & Miter Gauge Lock your fence down about 6 inches or so to the right of your table saw's right miter slot.
This method will also require a miter gauge that ideally doesn't have any slop to it when it rides the miter slot.Place your miter gauge in your miter slot and hold the piece of wood against the miter gauge, just touching the fence.
If your miter gauge has a slight bit of wiggle, you can manually push it against the side of the miter slot while testing, to correct this and still get accurate results.Now slide the miter gauge forward, holding the wood firmly in place.
It will do 1 of 3 things.It will either ride perfectly along the fence, meaning it's in line and no further...
