  • TS fence distance when making angled cut?

    I've got a TS 2412 and will be having to make some 22.5 degree cuts on it. When I rotate the blade, (ideally) does the "bottom" of the cut (near the TS surface) stay at what ever distance from the rip fence as it would at a 90 degree setting?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Without having tested this to be sure, I'd say, "No," since the axis on which the blade tilts is lower than the surface of the table.

      Actually the axis the blade tilts on is right at the table surface and should be intersect the plane of the right side of the blade. Thats why the trunions have a half moon shape instead of just a pivot point.

      Tilting the blade should change the tape but to be sure I would measure several times at first.

        That's what I was afraid of.

        Thanks!
