I purchased this saw to help me with a lot home inprovement projects and for this it is working fine. Now I need to fine tune this machine for furniture projects. The alingment of the blade to the miter gauge groove came set at .0035 from the factory at the time I felt this needed no adjustment. The rip fence did need adjustment and I adjusted that to dead nuts 0 from end to end but it does have a .002 bow in the center, on both the right and left sides. No problems there. The problems I do have is getting the blade square to the table. Using a solid machinist square and a .001 feeler guage I can get one side of the blade square to the table but if I check the other side it is off. I even removed the blade and use a piece of flat steel that I ground at work and I get the same results. I also noticed that if I rotate the blade a half turn it is no longer square to the table. When I rip a piece of wood to the right side of the blade the trailing end of the ripped piece rubs hard againts the back of the blade, if I rip to the left the trailing end doesn't touch the back of the blade. If I try resawing a thick piece of wood I get a very uneven line where the two cuts meet in the center. Also when I tried to use the 90 and 45 degree stops for the tilt mechanism I ran into problems. The hand wheel would turn very hard when it got in close to the stops. I removed the stops and noticed the ends had shaved pieces of steel on them. Should I replce these stops with brass screws? Right now I have to set the blade to a gage evey time I adjust the angle. Where can I find the Micro-Adjustable trunnions and other accessories for this saw?
