  1. I have a Grizzly G0715P 10" hybrid table saw. I am attempting to align the miter slot to the blade but am having difficulty. I am using a dial indicator made by Woodpeckers for measurements but cannot seem to get it any closer than .030. I have loosened the front a rear trunnion bolts multiple times to the point that I am of the belief that they have hit some sort of stop. I have also loosened the bolts holding the top and tried to manipulate it from this direction as well. Here are my questions: if the trunnions will not move any further either direction what is one to do? is adjusting the top better done without the rail tubes attached or does it matter? How much can one move the top in respect to the blade? any help you can give would be greatly appreciated btw .... if you live in the Shenandoah Valley somewhere and want to make a few bucks by helping me align this thing I would not be opposed
  2. I have a craftsman 10 inch compound miter saw (model MODEL NO. 137.212360 SN#041300896). A few weeks back i noticed that when adjusting the angle of the blade it was becoming increasing hard to turn the blade assembly whether it be to 45 degrees right or left. today I got motivated and disassembled the (part X3RS - TABLE) from the (part X3SS - BASE). There is a (part X3SQ - SLIDE PLATE) between the two. I noticed that it looks like the saw has been 'rubbing' one side of the slide plate to the point where it has made a groove in the metal. The table now falls into this groove and is what is making it so difficult to turn. I tried lubricating it to cut down on the friction which made it slightly better but didn't solve the problem so I am asking the larger community for any suggestions. I looked up the part and while it is an inexpensive fix I would still like to know why its doing this. parts diagram attached. http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e22/flagshipone/Untitled_zpsviypp5vt.png <a href="http://s36.photobucket.com/user/flagshipone/media/Untitled_zpsviypp5vt.png.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e22/flagshipone/Untitled_zpsviypp5vt.png" border="0" alt=" photo Untitled_zpsviypp5vt.png"/></a>
