So for the moment, this is a placeholder for a bunch of pictures I’m going to toss up here on the latest step of this process. It’s all together and as long as I can get it fine tuned, will be great. The lineal bearings slide perfectly until the 3×3 piece of extrusion is tightened down to it so I’m assuming there’s some flex in there somewhere causing this to happen. I’ve shimmed the bearings and that has done the opposite and made it not move what so ever E...
My table saw is a small one. I don’t think it counts as a contractor saw. If I recall correctly it’s sold as a bench-top. I have it mounted in a stand and it serves me well enough.

Saw Blade (ATB) 7. Hammer 8. Rubber Mallet I then performed the following steps:1. Installed blade and marked a tooth pointing towar...
