I have a Porter Cable PCB220TS table saw, and it has two main issues that I fight frequently.
On the first point: I can lock the angle of the blade, but not the height. Naturally, for the majority of use, this is not an issue. But if I do any dado cuts or other non-through cuts, it is frustrating to be accurate. When I first got the saw it didn’t take long to notice the change in height over long grooves.
On the second point: I made a new insert for my saw early on since the original sheet metal insert was a joke. But I quickly found that my saw is not like most saws. The insert doesn’t sit on both sides of the blade. In fact, on the arbor side of the blade, there are no supports for an insert to rest on. So even if I managed to make one that fit on both sides of the blade, the safety of it seems dubious.
So I wanted to ask if anyone had experience dealing with a lack of height lock, or this non-standard insert? Thanks for any help!
