contractor type saws ......`
Hello Everyone. I joined this forum hoping someone would be able help. I am looking for the owner's manual for Craftsman table saw model 137.248480
. My issue is that the blade is not parallel to the miter. The table or blade do not appear to have a pivoting point to make the adjustment.
I found a old post from a person with a similar issue http://https://www.shopyourway.com/questions/1047434
The posts mentions something about installing shims. I called craftsman. I was on hold for 2 hrs then got a message telling me to call back later. Any help would be greately appreciated.
A typical contractor table saw, with the outboard motor drive will have 4 bolts that secure the trunnion assembly to the underside of the table. The trunnions have corresponding holes that are just slightly larger than those bolts, enough to permit minor movement of the that assembly and of the blade to the miter slots. BTDT quite a few times myself.
There are numerous You Tube Videos on this process:
If your saw is a direct drive, the process is much the same. I find that turning the saw on it's back side rather totally upside down is the best way to access both the top for measuring the distance from the blade to the miter slot, and the underside for adjusting the trunnion bolts. Yes, they are heavy with the side extensions attached, but very much worth the effort.
The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)
