I have the Ridgid R4511 granite top TS. I guess when I assembled the saw back in May I didn’t check my miter slot to blade squareness as close as I should have. I mostly rip cut on my TS.
Anyway I noticed yesterday when cutting some ply at 24” that my fence scale measurement was off 1/16, where when I’m cutting at 6-8 inches the scale reads correct. When I checked the miter to blade squareness I found that the blade tails away from my combination square in the left miter slot about 1/32 from front of blade to back using the same tooth as reference point.
So would this affect my fence scale?? I’m thinking it must and amplify the further the fence gets away from the blade.
Regardless, I want to go ahead and square the miter to blade and then re square the fence to blade and I am wondering if I should loosen the table top and square that way or should this be a trunnion adjusment?
On this TS the trunnion attaches to the cabinet. Any suggestions would be a big help before I start making adjustments!!
