Quick tip for #feldergroup#tablesaw#hammer#combinationmachine :
I found an alignment problem with my standard #c331 table saw fence.. When cutting below 20cm (8") the piece seemed to be push towards the knife. In other words, the tip of the fence was closer to the saw blade.
So, removed the fence, put a straight edge close to the rail (ruler) and noticed a little misalignment.
How to solve it: as the rail is lifted every time you use the planer, there is a catch piece and a screw so that they support the rail and avoid any movement.
I need to screw and unscrew it until I got it to be parallel to the blade.
I put the fence close to the sliding table fence, that is right over the screw, and checked for the gap as I slided the table (video).
Then just to be sure that the further part was aligned too, I moved the sliding table fence as far as it can go and repeated the process.
Now it cuts like it should. No pressure, no noise when passing through the riving knife, minimum saw blade marks.
So go and check yours!! Have a nice wednesday!
After doing the 5 cut method to see how far off my fence was, I found I needed to shim it back 0.030". I used some feeler guages to get the correct distance. I then set a reference with the piece of walnut and loosened the fence and set it to the correct distance. I then redid the 5 cut method and found I had an accuracy of 0.0008"/inch. Definitely okay for me!
