Finally some news about the saw. I attempted to put it back together, but I was missing a few parts that go into the arbor assembly, so I made an order from the Saw Center website. After I got it all back together, I checked both the threaded part of the arbor and the flat face of the arbor for wobble. The threaded section only read any movement when the dial indicator went between the threads. It was spot on. The face had either .003” or .004” depending on where I placed the tip of the dial indicator. In my mind that is pretty darn close to flat, But I have been wrong before.

I cleaned the top up a little and squared it to the blade, and clamped the fence square to the miter channel to make a cut. It ran a little louder than my other saw, but seemed to cut just fine.

Are those measurements acceptable, or am I crazy?
