  • Table Saw Setup Ridgin R4511

    I have a setup question that pertains to my Rigid R4511. When I crank the blade to 90% it doesn’t quiteget there. I have a Wixey Digital Gaugethat says 89.8%. If I try to crank itthat last bit it makes a popping sound and feels like something slips. I crank it back and it goes to 89.8%.

    As a newbie woodworker, is there something obvious I ammissing? Is that small amount worthfussing over?

    Thanks for the help.

    have you zeroed the gauge to the table?
    The other most common cause is sawdust buildup on the stop screws, assuming that the stops were in adjustment before.
    "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
    John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
