I’m the proud owner of a new Delta 36-725 it’s the first table saw that I’ve owned and I’m having a heck of a time getting the riving knife aligned with the blade. I know this a somewhat popular saw and that you fine folks have been knowledgeable and helpful in the past.
There are 4 screws that are used to adjust the riving knife to bring it into the same plane as the blade but I just can’t seem to get the hang of how they are supposed to be used. I feel like every time I start to get it lined up in one direction it throws it out of alignment in another. I’m hoping that you guys can talk me through a strategy to get from where I’m at to where I need to be. The images below were all taken from the rear of the saw so the adjustment screws on the right in the images and the fence is off to the left.
The blade is currently perpendicular to the table.
If anyone wants to take a look at the manual the relevant portion is on page 28 here.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
