  • Reading serial # on a 3650

    I have a 3650 and am wanting to see if it falls in the ones that had a problem with running a 8" stacked dado.

    The first of the numbers is 07305#### if anyone can help me out or if you need the entire serial number to be able to tell and what problems I may run into if it does.

    Thank you for any help.

    The problem I think you're talking about wasn't actually a problem with 8" dado sets alone but any sized dado set. It's real easy to tell if your saw is one that had the bad arbor just by looking at the arbor. If the arbor is not threaded along its entire length then you have one of the affected saws. The only way to correct the problem is to replace the arbor.

      See the 3650 Assembly Tips thread for details on the arbor issue and links to photos showing the problem arbors.
      "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."
