I’ve been trying to get the blade aligned but am running into a problem. I bought the PALS kit and it helps but doesn’t solve my problem. The rear of the blade (outfeed side) is slightly closer to the fence than the infeed side causing burning, especially on cherry. I use a dial indicator in the miter slot and the fence is dead on but I cannot get the blade correct. I think that the trunion holes don’t have enough clearance. I’ve tried to push the front trunion all the way to the left (from the rear) and find that I still cannot get the alignment. The left PALS adjusting screw is tight and really cannot push the trunion any further. (The other PALS screw has been backed off, the rear trunion bolts are loose, the front has been both loose and tight and one side loose.)
It seems as if I need to open the holes on the front trunion as the rear PALS screw is about all the way in. Any hints on removing the front trunion? I guess I’ve got to remove everything.
Any other thoughts?
