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.
