Been working on a tune-up on my band saw. Installed a new drive belt, new guide bearings and new blade. Now trying to square the table up. How can I square the miter slot to the blade?

Thanks Dave

I wasnt for sure, but theres some slop in the table after the 4 mounting bolts are started which would allow for some movement. Thanks.

I disagree sorry on most saws bs ot ts you should be able to adjust without a lot of effort even if you need to shim this might be factory set but with as said some effort you shoulkd be able to rework the design if it is needed all of these things can be overcome with effort and thought and a few materials if needed .I know this because it is not brain surgery and you could take the table off if needed and retrofit another so why could truing it up be impossible see youtube or some of the books on tuning your saw from the library if you don’t want to buy one.It makes me even more determined when companies or people say not doable,everything regarding tuning machines a little is doable with effort and planning.LOL Alistair
