So I went out to the shop and finished drilling the holes on the other side of the saw and got everything installed there. I realized I hadn’t installed the brake on the front bearing! duh! I started doing this only to come to the conclusion either I need to drill a new hole for the brake to go through, or bore out one of the existing holes (into which a screw goes to hold the pads the bearings use to slide on the extrusion with) Hrm.
Also realized I was missing one other piece from Hutch’s blog. a Wixey digital saw read out. At $90 it’s a bit steep atm. Will have to think on this one a bit. Maybe careful measuring for now??
took a short, choppy video with my phone on the fence movement. I’m thinking about using some of the shims that came with the linear bearings to see if they will help. Sorry in advance for my video sucking – still working on those skills!” https://youtu.be/JTHUVoMArOo":https://youtu.be/JTHUVoMArOo
