I bought my R4511 in jan and am finally setting it up now. After aligning several cman 113 saws, doing the 90 degree alignment on this saw was AWEsomely easy. I set it up w/ a .003 toe out at the back. I debated doing this because most of the time I’ll be using a riving knife. But, I figured that wont be 100% of the time so better safe than sorry.
I’m using a guide I found on the rigid forums to calculate the shim thicknesses for aligning the blade at 45 degrees.
How much do you care about this alignment?
Is this worth chasing even to +-.003 that my guide suggests?
According to my readings the table at the front of the blade is .01” higher than at the back (an consequently about .03 over the front/back of the full table). BUT, I dont think the problem gets as bad as the 90deg alignment which gets worse by Error x Length of cut. The length of cut at 45 will only ever be 3-4” max.
