for me anyway.
I’ve been working w a freud diablo 40t that has at last check .007 runout at the gullets. I think i could hear it occasionally rubbing the side(s) of the ZCI.
I used that blade to resaw (in half) a whole stack of PT 2×4s on my bosch 4000, sufficed to say there was smoke during this process. I sold the 4000 and transferred the blade to my new baby.
The new baby is a rusty old 70s CMAN belt drive 113 that I got off CL for ZERO dollars.
I took off every nut, bolt, and bearing, sanded every bolt head on the base, gave the whole thing a new paint job. I even repainted all the bolt heads on the stand gloss black. I lubed up the trunion and all it’s adjusting bits. Elbow grease, wire wheel, and rust remover made the top shine again. I topped it off w/ a shiny new delta T2 30 fence.
After all that work that .007 runout was really cheezin’ me off. I got a new blade (incidentally this time a freud 24t rip), I sanded both sides of the arbor washer on 400 wet dry that was backed by an old cdrom for a true flat surface. I checked the washer and it was within .0005 all the way around. I also sanded the inside of the arbor nut the same way. after all this i mounted the blade.
After all that I’m left with a max runout of .002” at the gullets. I say SCREW it at this point. I’m happy with it!
Tomorrow I’m finally building my router wing and will be ready to FULLY enjoy my saw!!
