This is from American Woodworker.
I’d like to warn people to take the advise to some of the comments like:
Tony says, “Make sure your miter slot runs parallel to the saw blade.”
Rick says, “Dick: You said it twice and so did Karson I agree. I’ve owned three table saws, replaced the Fence on two of them, made every other possibble adjustment and the Fence ALWAYS needed adjustment when starting a new cut.
Maybe just a hair, but that’s enough. The Video might be okay for Checking Initial Alignment but I noticed even he had to “Thump” the other side of the fence to get it to line up, and “Good to go.” He wasn’t even intending to make a cut, I don’t think?
When I’ve got my blade set for the cut I ALWAYS make a final quick check using a Tape Measure (end to the fence) and measure to the Tip of the “inward pointing?” tooth (Raker?) at the Front and Rear of the blade. Very Rarely do I not have to “Whack” the Back Side of the Fence to move it perhaps 1/16” of an inch.”
REMEMBER! >>>>>>ALWAYS PLAY IT SAFE<<<<<<<
