Setting Blade Height on a Contractor Table Saw
Besides trial and error test cuts are there any other reliable methods that can be used to accurately set blade height on a contractor table saw using measurements from a ruler, gauge block, dial indicator or other measurement device?
I intended to make a single reference mark on my table saw surface to use for all height measurements. This reference mark would indicate the apex or top dead center position of my saw blade. Unfortunately, it does not appear to be that easy on my Delta contractor saw because the apex of the saw blade is not located in a fixed position. The saw blade apex moves from front to rear of the saw table as the blade is raised or lowered to a new height. Any suggestions?
