I have a Ridgid TS2424; there is no measurable shaft runout, but the flange that the blade rests against has 4-5 thousandths runout which results in ten thousandths runout at the edge of a new 10" blade. To fix it, I could buy a new arbor assembly at around $110, or remove the assembly and take it to a machine shop; but shouldn't it be possible to rest a file or stone against the flange (in the table) to clean it up? Shouldn't it just hit the high spots, and level it as would a machinist's lathe? One other thought is to put some sort of soft washer between the flange and the blade, so that it self-aligns against the outer washer instead of the inner flange. Any thoughts or suggestions would be welcome.
