Topic tags/keywords: grizzly 0715p tablesaw

Hey guys, new here and fairly new to the woodworking world. I’d read about the 0715P alignment issue from multiple sources over the past 2 years or so, but haven’t really seen anything pop up recently. I finally took the plunge and ordered the saw. After everything thing was installed it was time to tune it it. I raised the blade about 2 inches or so and aligned the blade to the miter slot. Got it to within just over .001” on multiple different teeth. When I lower the blade to about 1/2 inch or so and check the alignment again I got .012” difference….F*#@.

I’ve made sure the blade is at 90 degrees to the table and locked both adjusters before taking measurements. Has there been any fixes for this that I haven’t been able to find?

I had a R4512, I read that raising the blade to the final position helped with the heeling, and it did help. The idea is that lowering it, then raising to the final height removes some of the looseness and pulls the back end in a bit… or so I remember. My blade would heel over towards the fence and it was a struggle to push through after about 18 inches. Burned a lot of boards and tripped the breaker a few times.

Also, I believe you should check and align with the blade at maximum height.

-- I always suspected many gun nuts were afraid of something, just never thought popcorn was on the list.

Set alignment using the same tooth rotating the blade back and forth. Once you register off different teeth to compare you’ll go nuts if the blade is even the slightest bit out of flat.

That’s what I meant by multiple teeth…I measured the same tooth to get the measurement, at sever different locations.

Update: Well, I just got off the phone with a tech a grizzly, apparently their current acceptable tolerance for blade kick-out on the 0715P is .02”...not a typo, 20/1000ths. Seems excessive to me.

Have your say...
