Table Saw Blade Alignment
I have a crapsman 10" bench top TS and just finished a project. At the beginning of the project my blade was perfectly aligned. But as towards the end of the project I could tell it was getting out of line. Well here's the weird deal:
With the blade raised all the way, the blade is perfectly aligned with a the miter slots. As the blade lowers, with only an 1 1/2" of the blade above the table, the back of the saw blades moves left. So there is an 1/8" difference between the front of the blade and the rear of the blade.
I've reviewed the alignment instructions, and the instructions says to raise the blade all the way to begin alignment - and in that position it is aligned. I've tried cleaning the saw, and getting all sawdust out of the turning sprockets and such. The blade is 90 degrees from the table while doing this...
Has anyone experienced this, or offer any advice? I greatly appreciate your help.
