As for the rod not being exact, it s 16 threads per inch. I m no expert, but I think if it wasn t exactly 16 TPI, the nuts wouldn t fit.

A good way to test this is can you wobble the nut on your sawstop arbor when loose? You shouldn’t be able to. Now do the same to the nut on your regular threaded rod. You should have some play. This can make a small difference. If you had your old saw, you could have tested it by using a standard blade and cut a slot in a scrap to measure the width of the slot to the actual, widest width carbide tip on the blade to see if there was a difference.
