While my Hitachi contractor saw (C10RA3) is not thing a beauty by any stretch, and probably needs to be replaced, it’s all I’ve got at the moment and I can’t get the
#$%^#$ thing to make an accurate cut. It probably has as much to do with me as it does the saw but I’ve read everything I could find about turning up a table saw and measured, remeasured and remeasured some more…... and still get cuts that are off by , .2” I’ve tuned (or so I think) the blade to .001 with the miter slot and the fence dead on with the miter slot using a digital caliber that will measure down to .001. Measured the same tooth of the blade at front and back. What am I not looking at? The boards are consistantly cut with the end being about .2 wider at the end of the cut. The splitter does hold the wood tightly against the fence, maybe it’s too tight. There is a little (very minor, barely visible) bend in the middle of the fence. Both ends measure exactly the same, dead center is about .02 (that is .02 not .2 like the boards) deeper. Not sure if I just can’t measure correctly, if the small things I mentioned lead to bigger inaccuracies, or if I am just missing something.
