installed the pals system on my powermatic 64a tablesaw a while back…everything went very smooth and got the blade lined up easily…went to set my blade to 45degrees last week and it only allowed me to go to 40 degrees…the reason being is that the rod tilting the blade is hitting on the stud that was installed for the pals…does anyone know how to adjust this to let the blade be set at 45 degrees…i emailed jerry cole last week with this problem but have yet to get a response from him

I had the same problem, I had to use the original bolt on the side of tilt to keep it out of the way – the bolt that came with the PALs was too long. Hopefully it’s still as accurate and secure. So far so good

I have a C’man TS. It has 3 bolts holding the trunnion. Jerry said to align the saw, tighten 2 of the 3 bolts, then remove the PALS from the “offfending” location & install the original bolt. I haven’t attempted it yet as I was waiting for my machined pulleys to arrive & do everything at once.

Hope this helps.

to loosen locktite, heat up the stud, the locktite will break loose that way. moderate heat with a torch will work.
