I discoverd today that the blade for my saw is not parallel to the miter slot. I can adjust the fence to be parallel to the blade, but is there a way to adjust the blade?? It's off maybe 1/32 from front to back ... just enough to cause problems with stock going through the saw.
Also, they must have had a gorilla attach the blade because the arbor nut was on so tight I had to use a 3 foot pipe over the wrench to break it free. Of course, in all of the wrangling that preceded this effort to get the nut off, I stripped the flats on the inside arbor shaft. Grrr. The nearest service center to me is 50 miles away. I suppose I can just replace the arbor assembly myself. It looks easy if I get the part, but I'll have to pay. I guess that's the trade-off ... pay for the part ... or drive 50 miles, drop the saw, wait until it's serviced, and then drive back to get it.
