Well life continues to be ‘interesting’....
I was excited about a load of walnut I got the other day and was looking forward to using it. Before I started though I had been having trouble with my Freud dado blades. Just using the 2 outer blades for a 1/4” cut, I was getting these strange little shoulders in the bottom of the cut. I decided to take the blades and a sample to my local (Harrisburg, PA) Woodcraft store where I bought the blades and see if they had any suggestions. Well Ray got on the phone (Thanks Ray!) and called his Freud rep who was killing time in an airport somewhere. Anyway, he asked me what kind of table saw I have. I told him it was a craftsman (See the pics from the project I posted).
I am really not looking forward to taking this beast apart, but I don’t have the money for a new cabinet saw at this time. Of course taking it apart will probably be easier than putting it back together and aligning it from scratch.
Has anybody else ever replaced the arbor on one of these things before? Any words of wisdom?
Thanks in advance!
