I am doing some tuning on the table saw. It is a 10” Jet Hybrid. I am using a digital caliper. To the best if my knowledge the blade is square with the table slots. I have tweaked the fence and the best I can get is 1/64” parallel with the blade. I measured some boards that I ripped to 3” and they were within 1/64” end to end.

Do you consider that accurate enough or should I keep trying until I get it spot on?

I would keep trying to get to 0.0001 – 0.0003 runout. Make sure you have a runout at least somewhat or you will get kickback from the pinching.

If you feel that is good enough for you I would stay there, but I can’t help myself that it just bugs the heck out of me though. Guess the artist comes out in me and that’s why i’m so picky sometimes.
