  • TS3660 Fence Problem

    Hey everyone!

    I purchased a TS3660 a couple weeks ago and spent some time with a dial indicator and PALS getting the blade aligned to the miter slots. I then aligned the fence to the blade.

    Well... I'm still seeing bad burning and the wood appears to be hitting the teeth at the back of the blade.

    I double checked the blade to miter slot alignment and it's spot on.

    I then checked the fence and it looked good until I moved it to the other side of the blade and rechecked. It was off by over 0.02".

    The weird thing is that the measurements are consistent. By that I mean the measurement is the same every time I check the fence when it's next to the right hand miter slot. And it's the same every time I check it next to the left hand miter slot.

    So I'm thinking maybe my rails are bent, causing the fence squareness to vary over the length of the rails.

    When I installed the fence rails, I didn't think I needed to install any shims, as there didn't appear to be any gaps. But I'm starting to think this is the root of the problem.

    So before I go messing with the fence rails, I thought I'd see if anyone has any other advice.

    Thanks!

    Have you checked the alignment of the splitter? It sounds to me like that could be where your problem is.

      I took the splitter/guard off because the stock was getting caught on it. As soon as I get this fence thing taken care of I'm going to get the splitter aligned properly and reinstall it.
