Several weeks ago I aligned my table slots to the sanding disk. I went from about 0.010 to 0.0035. I was elated! At the time, I used a piece of paper instead of a dollar bill as a shim guage at the trunnion. After doing this, I realigned stationary tables and rip fence. Everything was great.
Yesterday, I planned to move to the drill press mode. Unfortunately, I was not able to tilt my table to the 90 degrees to the drill press mode. The table would only go so far before binding up.
Although I followed the torque recommendations and sequence of toquing, my thinking is that I somehow stressed the mounting in that process.
I'm looking for other opinions and advice. Is it possible the paper contributed to my problem? Any other things I should look at? Thanks in advance.
