Hope you all had a productive weekend..
I have a problem adjusting the blade parallel to the Miter
Gauge Groove on a Ridgid TS2412 table saw. It is driving me
CRAZY!!!! The blade is perfectly strait while raised up
all the way, but as the blade is lowered down for normal use,
the out feed end of the blade walks to the right. It will be
off as much as 1/16 inch.
Anyone have a suggestion?? This is a new saw..
I'm not familiar with the Ridgid but if it has two tie-bars that connect the
front and rear trunnions, then I may have some procedures that will help.
The tie-bars need to be parallel and if not, you get what you're
Lee, Welcome to the club. I have the same problem.
I believe that the bearing bores in the blade arbor are not
in alignment with the pivot shaft bore . My temporary solution is to
align the blade with the miter slot at the depth of cut I use most
often( 1"). Then when the blade is raised, the outfeed end will
walk left. As I said, this is only temporary until I find a solution.
Maybe you should return the saw.
