A while ago, I upgrade my older Emerson-made craftsman table saw with
the PALS system from woodcraft. I was very happy to be able to adjust
the blades trueness to the miter slot so easily.
However, I recently discovered that with the PALS system installed, I
couldn't tilt the blade all the way to 45 degrees. The whole
motor/blade/belt/arbor assembly collided with the bolt from the PALS
system once I got the table to about 38 degrees.
I took the PALS bolt out, and put the original craftsman bolt in, but
kept the PALS L-Bracket thingy. Still, I was only able to the tilt the
saw to about 40 degrees.
What I wound up doing was grinding the head of the bolt to half of its
thickness. Finally, I was able to get the blade tilted to 45.
This is just an FYI for anyone out there who has this system
installed, or has wondered about it.
Has anyone out there had this problem besides me?
