Does anyone know where to find the foot stiffeners? I couldn't locate them in the box.
Using my Johnson 48" level and feeler gauges I have less than .003" across the whole table. Assuming of course that the level is machined well. There are machining marks on it and it says I think within .001" so I think I'm all good here.
Thanks to the posting here on the updated manual the Herculift went together easy!!! I haven't even checked which manual I have yet, just took the laptop into the shop and followed those directions.
This week I'll finish the setup.
Putting together my 3650 and ran into an issue I need input on. I am trying to align the front and back rails to the rip fence page 22/23 in the manaul. Sliding the rip fence to the right miter gauge I can't get the front of the fence to less than 11 pages the back will tighten to within the 8 pages limit but evertime I tighten up the front rail it raises up to the 10-12 page range at the miter slot. If I slide the fence towards the edge of the table I get to the 8-9 page range. Is this a cause for concen and if so how do I fix it. Thanks.
When I would raise the rear rail to get the correct fence height, the miter gauge guide would hit the rear rail. I ended up mounting the rear rail as low as it would go so the miter gauge guide would clear it. I tightened the nut at the rear of the fence enough so the fence would not drag on the table (tightening raises the fence), but not so tight that it would cause the fence to bind anywhere. I found there to be a fine line between the fence dragging on the table and having the fence bind slightly at the outer right end of travel. To give a bit more clearance to the back end of the fence, I loosened the two bolts holding the rear fence against the long end of the table and pushed up on the fence before tightening the bolts. This gave me the clearance I wanted under the fence and still allowed the miter gauge to freely clear the rear rail.
Awwee Man, theres an updated manual on the Herculift, no wonder it was a PITA to assembleThanks to the posting here on the updated manual the Herculift went together easy!!!
I just finished putting my 3650 together and had no problems at all but spent my time (3 days) doing it. I was impressed the way the fastening hardware was packaged and the ease of putting it all together. I built this alignment gauge to check out the saw and out-of-the-box, the fence is less than .002 from front to back but the blade is off by .023 so looks like I need to adjust that. Even without making any cuts with this saw, I am very impressed. Can't wait to align it and start using it.
