There is no special trick to setting up a table saw. You open the manual and follow the steps listed. For those unfamiliar with this concept companies that build machinery of any type provide detailed instructions on proper set up that are easy to follow. This holds true for everything from toasters to Cincinnatti press brakes with 6 axis back gauges. If you are unable or unwilling to do this find somebody who will and pay them to do the set up while you watch. Ask questions, take notes so you can check to be sure everything stays in proper adjustment. Again, if you can't do this then pay somebody to come in and do it for you. A properly set up machine wont burn the toast or remove your fingers.
