  • TS3650 Set up

    Few questions,

    What is that small lever on the rear trunnion for?

    When I use the t-square to make sure the blade is at 90 degrees it seem dead on if I put the square on the right side of the blade but off if I put the square on the left side of the blade.

    I don't have a fine measuring tool but I believe my saw blade is about 2-3 sheets of computer paper off from front to back. When I run a T-square (in the left t-track slot) next to a blade tooth in the front and then rotate that same blade tooth to the back I am out. Is this an acceptable amount to be off or do I need to loosen the 6 trunnion bolts and tap the table over slightly.

    I watched this video for help;

    Any help from you all in this forum would be appreciated.

    It sounds like your t-square may not be square. You need to verify that first.

      that video is for setting up a cabinet saw, not a contractor saw like the 3650.

        go to this in tips and techniques and read through and you should find all the information on install you need. Also search for Adjusting Trunions and http://www.ridgidforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=7585

          Rofl,

          How does setting up the TS3650 differ from this video?

          Thanks, for your reply.

            Simplest explanation.

            On a cabinet saw you move the table to line up with the blade.

            On a contractor saw you move the blade to line up with the table.

            The link provided by the other poster could turn out to be your best friend.

              Rofl,

              Thank you. This TS3650 is like my first real table saw. I have only ever used my prior table saws to slice 2x4's in half, etc...

              I really am trying to learn this stuff. After reading a bit more I think I have figured out how to align my blade with the eccentric lever.

              Now lets just hope my t-square is square.

              Thanks again Rofl.
