Adjust Your Scroll Saw Table for Square Cuts
To test your cut for square, select a piece of scrap about 3/4" in thickness. Place the wood flat on the tabletop and make a 1" cut straight into the wood, across the grain. Pull the wood straight back, away from the blade. Reposition the wood so your cut is facing the back of the blade. If the cut line and blade line up, then the blade will slide into the cut with no resistance: your table is square.
