Hello! Hoping I can get some help here.

Setting up my new table saw and am in process of dialing in blade to miter slot to make sure all is parallel.
From reading the manual and seeing a few videos on YouTube of how I should measure from miter slot to 1 single carbide tooth and mark that tooth. Then rotate the blade to opposite end and measure to that same tooth. Well my blade does not spin, it’s hard to rotate by hand, if I push/pull the blade however far and let go it snaps back to original posistion.

Anyone know why? Seems like from what I gather the blade should spin freely by hand.

Have you removed all the packing material?

I don’t own the saw but am familiar with the type, There is something impending the arbor or blade from spinning, you might have to take off a dust access panel to get a good look at what going on , but it’s should spin freely

Naw… that’s typical, particularly on a machine with multiple belts. Try spinning the blade by pulling on the belts or turning the motor pulley.
