How to align table saw blade - Craftsman 113
In the video below I showing how to align table saw blade with dial gauge and self constructed holder. I was able to achieve 0.001” precision even without additional PALS system. My saw is Craftsman 113 27520.
Having a properly aligned table saw blade is important for several reasons
A misaligned blade will result in cuts that are not straight or at the correct angle. This can lead to inaccuracies in your workpiece, and can make it difficult to get a precise fit.
A misaligned blade can cause the workpiece to bind, kickback, or otherwise become unstable during cutting. This can be dangerous for the operator and damage the workpiece or the saw itself.
A misaligned blade will put unnecessary strain on the blade, causing it to wear out more quickly. A well-aligned blade will run smoother, put less stress on the blade, and last longer.
A properly aligned blade will produce consistent cuts each time, allowing you to work with greater confidence and accuracy.
In short, having a well-aligned table saw blade is essential for both the safety and accuracy of your work, as well as for the longevity of your blade.
