So I went and treated myself to a shiny new table saw for christmas, much to my wifes dismay. My current table saw is a PC jobsite saw, that is ok at best. I basically took it out of the box, put it together and have been running it ever since. No setup, no dialing in, nothing. That is why it is jut ok.
I decided with my new TS I am going to do everything right and that included dialing in the blade. To accurately dial the blade and fence in, I wanted to get a dial indicator. I got just the dial and decided I could build a jig to hold it steady for less then $40.
I used some leftover oak pieces for the miter slide and for the base. Four dollars and some change at Lowes got me some L brackets and the appropriate bolt/nuts to mount the dial on the oak base. It seems to be very solid and it telling how bad my current blade is out of alignment.
