Ok, I finally got some time to play with the new Align it jig I purchased on the new cabinet saw. I thought I had the blade close to parallel to the miter slot, but it wasn't. No problem, loosen 3 of the 4 bolts. Closest I could get was (est) 0.0042. Most of the time, more like 0.005. So I loosen the 4th bolt. No help. It seems like the direction I need to go, it doesn't have any more adjustment. Has anyone had to ream out the holes in the cabinet before to get it closer? Or am I trying to get too close to perfect? I thought I'd be fine at 0.001 to 0.002, but I just can't get there. I'd prefer not to take the top off, but will if that is what is needed to get this right. I've been going off the right miter slot. I doubt I'll ever use that. Might try the left one just to see if there is any difference. I'm using a Forrest blade that has ripped through about 9 linear feet of 2X material. I am marking one tooth and measuring front to back off the same spot. Measuring before on the trunnion showed negligible movement, so I don't think that is the problem. TIA for any help you can offer. Jim.
