I have an old Grizzly G1022 table saw. For the most part it has been a great workhorse and after many sleds and jigs it gives me far better precision than I deserve.
Recently it has started to develop a problem. I carefully set the blade angle before a cut and by the middle of the cut the blade angle has drifted away from true. This can be extreme at times, up to 2-3 degrees. Obviously this is completely messing up the parts I am working on.
The problem is happening more and more often, but there doesn’t seem to be any consistent symptoms. The saw isn’t vibrating any more than normal. I am cutting down the middle of the wood, not an edge shave.
I have investigated as best I can and can’t find any obvious source of the problems. Internally I checked the screws and connections and everything seems in order.
What bothers me is I can’t find any screw or adjustment that would tighten down the blade angle adjust. I assumed that would fix my problem if I could only find it.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I am hoping someone smarter than me could give me a bit of advice.
