Adjusting the saw blade guide PS 420 EBQ
« on: May 20, 2015, 12:25 PM »
Seems kind of silly to adjust the saw blade guide after every blade change.

After breaking 2 blades I took the screw out and had better results. YMMV.

I was cutting 4 x 4 Douglas fir posts that had a couple of 3/4 oak cleats.

When the cutting was good I noticed that the blade was cutting evenly and the
paint wore evenly as well. This is more of an observation than a complaint.

All's well that ends well. The blades were 105/4 FSG

I leave the guides loose for general cutting, adjust when I need the precision.
