I recently picked up a Delta 36-725 table saw and have been trying to set it up, hoping to get some help though.
I’ve tried thetinman’s thorough guide on this (http://lumberjocks.com/thetinman/blog/45305), followed Delta’s new manual (http://www.deltamachinery.com/downloads/manuals/table_saws/36-725/DELTA_36-725_Contractor_Table_Saw_Manual_Eng.pdf), and searched for all alignment videos on youtube related to this saw.
My first question is..Page 28 of the manual describes how to align the riving knife. Step 4 says to loosen the socket head cap screws. The problem is these screws are underneath the table and not possible to fit a hex wrench in there.
Second question is I followed thetinman’s procedure (as well as this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AK5MLWRHIa8) to align the blade, but it really only lets you swing the blade in the rear. My issue with this saw is when I crank the knob to 0 degrees, the blade actually isn’t square with the tabletop. I have to take it past 0 on the table indicator for it to be actually square, and it would suck to have to compensate for this when cutting at other angles. Is there a way to to calibrate this?
Thanks in advance!
