Found some more time after brewing a Hazlenut Nectar beer.
So, I am testing for blade parallelism to double check against sight measurements.
Here’s what I did:
1. Perform a cross-cut from both sides of the blade. This process goes as follows for both sides:
1a. Cut the piece at the front of the blade and run it to the rear of the blade.
1b. Hold the piece at the rear of the blade and listen for more cutting.
1c. Shut down the saw and listen for more cutting during shutdown runout.
1d. Check the wood for burning and check for square and flatness.
1e. Make adjustments as necessary after both sides have been tested.
Woo Hoo!! No adjustments necessary. And being my first cut on a ts, I am very happy with the results of the cut. The Forrest WWII blade left a glue-ready edge. This edge was smooooth. I hope it stays like that for a while.
