TS 75 EQ Toe In Reference
« on: April 03, 2017, 03:01 PM »
I've read about determining whether the toe-in on your TS 75 needs adjustment with a slip of paper - is there a good reference for how to make the adjustment?

Thanks

I've read all the advice regarding toe-in and I am not drinking the koolaid.  My tablesaws don't have toe-in and neither do my portable saws.  I clamp my rail to a nice scrap and plunge full depth.  I measure, with electronic calipers the front and back distance to the aluminum edge of my rail and adjust until both ends are exact.  I've done this with all my saws mostly to make them all cut the same distance from the rail.  I do not use my splinter strip to place my cuts, all my saws cut 3mm from the aluminum rail and that is how I place my material for precision.  Woodpeckers Paolini rules are outstanding for this type of placement.  P.S. I use a 55, 75, HKC, and my original Makita.

I agree with @rst. There are two camps regarding "toe-in" on table saws as well, and I have not seen any compelling evidence that it is necessary. I simply set the blade parallel to the rail or fence.

Is there a good set of instructions on "how" to set the blade? Before I start turning screws I was looking for some help to figure out what to do to adjust the toe angle on my saw.

Check out supplemental manual at   http://www.waterfront-woods.com/festool/
Look for TS55 REQ, page 22. There is no TS75, but the procedure is the same.
