After I picked up the tablesaw, I started cleaning it up. Getting some of the surface rust removed and cleaning up the mitre slots. The saw had an old V belt and as I started the saw it made a terrible sound. As I watched the blade come to a stop I noticed that it had a significant wobble in it. I didn’t measure it, but it was probably at least 1/8”. As I turned the blade by hand you could see that the arbor was bent. I was pretty disappointed, but I still felt that I had gotten a good deal. I found a used arbor housing on eBay and I won the bidding. I got it installed today and the saw is cutting nearly flawless. I need to pickup a better more accurate way to measure for run-out and alignment, but right now it appears to be cutting very accurately. I’m looking forward to picking up some plywood to start building a few cabinets.

I think my first set of shop cabinets will be my mitre station.

Thanks for reading, keep making progress!
