Crooked blade raising mechanism
It took me several hours to figure out what the hell was going on but I have finally figured out the problem! (But now don’t know what to do about it).
I bought a new Rigid R4512 table saw and put the Incra TS-LS fence/router table/lift combo on it and I really don’t want to return this beast now that I’ve got everything put on it and fully calibrated.
My problem is that with the blade raised to a few inches above the table I have the blade aligned perfectly with the miter slot and fence, but when I raise the blade all the way up, the back of the blade is now 3/64ths closer to the slot. The mechanism that raises the blade does not do so straight.
A) is this common?
B) is there any adjustment to straighten this out &
C) if not, 3/64ths is too much to allow for a table saw blade, no? That’s a burn, kickback and poor jointery fit risk, right?
God I don’t want to take this all apart and haul that 250lb beast back up the stairs! Any help will be a SUPER appreciated!
