Table saw tune up questions
Trying to get the most out of my old Craftsman 10" Contractor's saw, I bought myself an A-Line-It tool yesterday and started checking out my setup.
I'm flabbergasted to report that I have nearly perfect alignment from my blade to the table, for starters. That ain't half bad for a first time setup from about 15 years ago, using a 2X4 scrap and a hammer.
I don't have the deluxe version, so I can't vouch for the for any other slop in the arbor versus the blade, but I can check out my fence alignment (which is different every time I use the saw).
So, since I want to get the most out of my saw, my options seem to be to buy a decent blade and get a better fence. I already use a Freud stabilizer to help my cheap blades spin better.
What would be a good choice of a combination blade from the big box stores - Freud 40 tooth?
How about getting an accusquare fence from Mule? I've already got a pair of cast iron extensions on both ends of the table, so I have 25" left and right available now.
I'm looking forward to your responses...
