I just purchased a new Grizzly G0715P and after reading various reviews I was inspired to use a veritas level, feeler gauges, created a couple jigs for my dial indicator and off I went. Following are my measurements:
Table top flatness—.004 variance with a dip around the blade opening
runout on arbor itself—less than .001
Miter slot to blade alignment— .0025, adjust to less than .001
Miter slot to fence alignment— adjusted to .006, there is some wavyness on the plastic fence face that is the culprit.
fence deflection—.006, used what I thought was a realistic amount of pressure
measured from the center the blade it moved out .006 from 2.5” above the table (had stabilizer on blade and any higher and it interferes with the cut) to as low as I could measure as it was lowered and raised.
Keep in mind I am measuring off of my forest woodworker blade and there is room for human error, but do you guys think these variations are acceptable? If you think I should be concerned about any of these measurements please share your opinion. Thanks you.
