I finally got my new TS3650 put together. All in all, I think it took me about 10-15 hours. I've never owned a TS before, and the 2 things that took me the longest were 1) deciphering the manual and 2) trying to align all the different components.
I think that I've finally got aligned correctly. At least as good as I can get it anyway. :) I've made a few cuts with it and so far everything appears to working great.
I do have a few questions though.
1) There are some brown discolored spots on the table top. What are
they and should I be worried.
2) My "workshop" is a very crowded 10X12 shed wich is unconditioned.
Will the saw be ok in the heat/cold/humidity?
3) Is there a list somewhere of the tolerances for alignment?
Like I said I think that it's aligned correctly, but on some of the alignments, such as checking 90 degrees and 45 degrees I noticed that either my brand new square does not have perfectly straight edges or the saw blade is not perfectly straight. (and yes I made sure that the square was not resting on any of the saw tooth blades).
I'm sure I'll have more questions, but these are the only ones I can think of right now.
