Felder K700 or K500 tablesaw question
« on: May 04, 2018, 10:56 AM »
Hi, I have a Felder K500 saw and am looking for some help to adjust the travel of the sliding table. It is about 7-10 thousandths off and the work pieces are contacting the rear of the blade as they are pushed by. I bought this saw used and suspect the table was moved slightly in transit. I have the user manual from Felder but it doesen't cover that adjustment
Any help is appreciated, thanks.

Sign up for the Yahoo Felder Owner Group and repost. It's an archaic format, but you will get a solid answer likely within the hour. I'd add a few more details about the machine and the specifics about how you are making the cut.

You might want to check to see if the blade is heeling first.  That would be an easier adjustment. 

I have a Felder and the blade is heeling a little.  It didn't when I got it but I've moved it around a lot on a pallet jack and I think it may have drifted a little.  It's heeling on the rip side though so it's a less pressing concern to me, which is why I haven't got around to adjusting it.
