« Part 53: Hitachi C10FL Acquisition - Part 2 Part 54 of Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring series Part 55: Seasoned Maple Boards »

Assembly was finished late this afternoon. Tests showed I could achieve 90 degree accuracy between blade and table top, but from front to back of the blade in relation to the miter slots I was at least a sixteenth off in the back. Still some vibration after startup. Not having been run for a year has made some of the pivots a little stiff. As it was, I had to lube the angle pivots. A little more TLC. The manual doesn’t explain how to deal with blade to miter slot adjustment. A search on the Web brought me to a forum post that reiterated what Hitachi told him: four bolts holding the trunnion to the bottom of the top need to be loosened and the assembly moved as needed. Typical. Tomorrow. I’m done for this day.

Nice job of restoring your table saw Paul. It looks new. A little more tweaking and you are done.
