I’ve been searching through here with no luck.
I have an old CMan 113.XXXXXX table saw with some blade wobble.
I found out about the arbor flange possibly being the culprit, so I first bought some new bearings and when that didn’t work I got a grinding stone and went to work the Mathias Wandel way. This still didn’t seem to do the trick. But thinking back on it, it may have just been the cheapo stone that I bought wasn’t doing it’s job or that I just didn’t grind enough.
Moving on, I bought a “new” arbor shaft in the hopes that my problem was with my old one being bent. I just installed it yesterday and set up my dial indicator and was only getting around .002 of run-out on the “new” flange, so I was pretty excited until I put the blade (Freud Diablo) back on. I set up the dial just under the gullets and spun the blade with the pulley attached to the arbor and was getting around .023 at the worst point. So I put my other Diablo blade on and was still getting a high number. Then I went to Home Depot and bought a new Diablo blade and that one turned out to have around .014 of run-out.
I don’t get it. Is it possible that all three of these blades (even the new one) are all warped slightly? Should I try a higher end blade?
