Blade Adjustments. Axis Adjustment Modern table saws allow the blade to be adjusted in various ways. The blade can be adjusted both vertically and by changing its axis. Vertical adjustments are made by exposing more of the blade, which changes the depth of cut. This comes in handy for thick pieces of wood as well as for non-through cuts. By adjusting the axis of the blade, you can make cuts at a certain angle, thus making bevel cuts, which are good for creating joints.
Riving knife an even better option would be to consider a table saw with a riving knife instead of a splitter. While both do roughly the same thing, there are some key differences between the two. The disadvantage of having a splitter instead of a riving knife is that the splitter is fixed, which means it doesn't move along with the blade. Because it's fixed, a splitter needs to be removed when making cross, non-through, and dado cuts. Unfortunately, many people tend to forget to put the splitter back in place when they start making rip cuts. So if you have a table saw which uses a splitter to prevent kickback, always remember to double-check that the splitter is in place.
Choosing the wrong blade will result in poor woodwork at best, and turn into a potential accident at worst. Now, in order to get the most out of the saw you paid for with your hard-earned cash, and to avoid any saw-related accidents, you need to learn a thing or two about the blades. This short guide I put together should teach you what you need to know. Check it out.
