Good morn’in
now I see the problem on the arbor. Yes there is a “void” at the end of the threads that could let that second balde (chipper) be a bit ofset and now it would stand proud of the rest causing the uneven dado. My photo cought the problem and I didn’t know that I was looking right at it all along. ...
I will try the JB Weld first, then see if Rigid will make an adjustment on the replacement arbor or what.
I can’t thank all of you enough for your help.
I will add that Teejk and Binghamptoned are right about using the jointer pads, I use the feather boards in the ‘T’ slot on the rip fence and use the push pads to feed the board across the cutter. I have this fear that the board will shatter and leave my hand to deal with the spinning cutter … (shrug and shutter) ... just my phobia.
Thanks again,
