Hey guys, I am new to the site but have been creeping around for awhile. This is my first post here so hopefully someone can give me a few tips or ideas.
I am having a little bit of a problem with my new Ridgid R4512 table saw (has the revised trunnion).... I have recently setup the saw and everything is working fine but one thing that I have noticed was the table top was being pushed upward when I had the blade at 90 & 45. Slight hump on the left side of the blade where the trunnion is mounted that is screwing up my cuts. On top of the saw there are 2 adjustment screws, if I back those screws off the top goes back down flat but then my angle guage on the front of the saw seems to be off. I slightly tighten the screws again to adjust the angle and then the saw top bows upward again. This only happens when I try to get the blade at a perfect 90 and 45. The tops bows out far enough as to where it is making the right side miter slot just below a 1/16”. And the stock is teetering like a seesaw.
Is there anyway to fix this problem? If I were to take the screws out completely would it affect the performance of the saw? I’ve been thinking of getting a digital angle finder instead of using the angle guage on the front if I had to remove the screws.Ideas?
