With the stock blade and a Harbor Freight mobile base.

This is my first table saw and I’m pretty happy so far. The fence locks up square and moves much smoother than I expected with aluminum rails. I can push it with one finger and it slides 3/4 of the way to the other end of the table.

Congrats on your new saw. Do you always cut at that rate of feed?

Now add that 6 cents to another $30 and get your new saw a suitable blade!

Thanks! That’s the speed I’ve been going. There’s a lot of resistance when I push wood through and some vibration when I go faster, I’m hoping better blades will be smoother and easier to feed. The arbor has no measurable run out, the blade is aligned to the slots within 0.001” and the fence is almost parallel, opening up 0.004” at the far end but it’s a bit concave dipping to 0.012” in the middle. I’ve got a Freud ultimate plywood blade and a Freud rip blade coming in the mail.

I have the same saw and had the same issue with resistance until I calibrated the table to the blade and now it cuts beautifully with no resistance.

-- I've cut this board three times and it's still too short...

Now get this blade and look at the report on it.
