I have an old Craftsman tablesaw circa 1950's that I've used for years with
no problems. I have a strange thing happening on cutting and I'm puzzled. If
I cut from the right side of the blade ( a W.W.II , link belts, etc. ) I get
a perfectly smooth cut. If I cut from the left side of the blade I get a
smooth cut BUT I have a few upward ( rear teeth) burn marks on the main
piece. I've checked for square, marked a tooth and checked distance from
miter slot - nothing seems unusual. I obviously am missing something.
Any suggestions of what and how to check? I have a dial indicator but other
than that just the usual ww tools.
The upward burn mark would lead me to believe that the rear teeth are closer
than the front teeth but I just don't see it when I check.
Only thing I haven't tried - I have a new W.W.II blade. They both are thin
kerf - I wonder if the older blade has somehow twisted a bit? If it has, how
does one fix that - send it back to Forrest?
