question on aligning the arbor on a table saw. with a dial caliper i’ve measured the variance 2 ways
2 – i measure the distance from the mitre track to near a saw tooth at the front of the saw. then WITHOUT rotating the blade, move the caliper to the back of the table saw measure again (this time to a different tooth since i didn’t rotate the blade). the variance i get here is dependant upon where i start on the blade. but sometime the variance is up to 5 thousandths.
i would think the difference between method 1 and 2 above is that 2 also include any variance due to the blade not being perfectly flat (i’ve used 2 fairly new Freund blades, albeit not their most expensive ones).
what do you guys think? do i need to do anything about this?
