Topic tags/keywords: question tablesaw

I recently bought a Grizzly G0715P and realized that the elevation mechanism not worked as I expect.

It up a maximum of 2-3/4” and then the handwheel gets lock. I never can up the blade to his all height of 3-1/8 like the user manual specifications.

Unfortunately this machine now is outside of USA and I can’t call or ask for a Grizzly support.

So is there any adjust that I can do it myself? I didn’t find any bolt or mechanism to remove this limitation.

Check the hard stop. There may be a set screw that is preventing the height travel.
Also, check for build up of debris on the screw. It may have been greased at one time and now is full of wood dust and is preventing the screw to turn at one end.

This is a new machine, I used twice only.
The screws are clean, and didn’t find any bolt or screw that the limit the height.

Just for the heck of it, what size blade are you using?

Why can’t you call Grizzly support? They will provide support for their machines regardless of where they are located.

Did you verify that height (3 -1/8”) from the manual? I’m thinking 2 3/4” sounds very reasonable when you consider the arbor washer itself is ~1- 1/4”(x2),I’ll have to check my 10” R/B table saw Tomorrow to see it’s maximum height.

Just a thought, since you’ve only used it twice – did you remove all of the packing material? I know my Delta TS had a styrofoam block between the motor and table that would have limited blade height if it wasn’t removed. Maybe yours has something similar?

Thanks all for help. This weekend I found a screw under the table that has been limiting the blade height. Just a minor adjustments and now I can up the blade to all to his height.

The sad news is that screw wasn’t documented in user manual.

Have your say...
