    Gloat! New Tablesaw

    Actually I don't have a new tablesaw but my old one sure acts like a new one. I spent the morning aligning the blade and the fence and the first rip cuts were smooth enough to be glue line quality. It even sounds better and when I tried hogging the wood through, there wasn't the laboring sound I was used to. I also aligned the pulleys better which helped a lot.

    Before aligning the blade I installed the PALS I bought a year ago. That sure makes the alignment process easier.

    Yep there are just a few thing SU can't do for you. You have to do them your self. Sounds like everythings got you under control.

    Good deal, Dave. Sure can make a big difference, huh? What saw have you got?

    Yes, a good tune up can make a world of difference. the saw is a right tile Jet contractor saw with CI wings. I have the Incra TS-IIIa fence on it which is a great addition.

    Amen! Most people assume their saw (or any other tool) came out of the factory perfect and leave it that way. Never take in account that things wear and move. If they did routine maintenance there would probably be less upgrading.

    No slam on you! Just a fact.
