The first thing I did even before plugging it in was aligning the trunnion. Currently the blade is +/- 0.001 to the miter slot. The blade is also perpendicular to the table. When I try to spin the blade by hand (saw unplugged of course), it does feel smooth and I don’t hear any noises, of course who knows what happens when the motor actually powers up.

My immediate thought is like you said ksSlim, something has been knocked out of whack and there’s possibly something binding, however one thing I can’t figure out is if that’s the case, why does the breaker at the tool not trip before the breaker in the panel? Am I misunderstanding how that works?
