So i am tearing town the grizzly table saw to replace bearings and set everything up properly and to remove rust.

So when i take out this whole section, i will have to make sure the blade is properly aligned. Does anyone have info on this?

I will go through all the paperwork i have to see what i can find out. Just might need more info as well!

I also noticed someone mentioned recently their tablesaw wasnt cutting straight, this could be a similar issue for them.

Just put it all back together in the opposite sequence you took it apart. There really aren’t any adjustments for the alignment to be made from the guts of the saw. The alignment will actually come via adjusting the top to get the miter slots parallel with the blade. There should be some play in the bolt holes that hold the top secure to the base….install those bolts slightly more than hand tight so the table can be coaxed into position with a rubber mallet, then tap the table in place. Then alternate tightening those bolts a bit at a time. Double check the alignment after they’re fully tight in case something shifts. Then adjust the fence parallel to the blade.
