    When I broke my belts installing a zero-clearance throat plate, the search engine was down. The tech place where I bought the replacement belts didn't provide much help or direction.

    For those who have the problem later on, here is the procedure I figured out, which is quite fast:
    1. Unplug the saw.
    2. Remove

    Zen and the Art of Splitter Shim Making

    I'm a proud owner of a Ryobi BT3000 table saw. When I saw the Ryobi BT3100 update for the first time, I looked carefully for changes. One of the small but useful improvements is the use of splitter guides along with shims for the splitter/blade guard assembly....

  • The Rod Kirby Method of BT3000 Alignment

    The Rod Kirby Method of BT3000 Alignment

    The Kirby Alignment Method
    For the Ryobi BT3000 Table Saw

    By Rod Kirby

    This approach has three big advantages - it's simple, fast, and it works! I have been using this method successfully for years. Although the following seems "wordy", it's real easy. Everything centers around what I call my "alignment block". It's a piece of 1" thick MDF, 7-13/16" x 5-13/16", with 3/16" chamfers on the short sides of the top face. It's made this size so that when the saw blade is fully raised, the block sits against saw body, not the teeth. Do whatever you have to, to make the block exactly square, with parallel sides. Because t...

    After years of fussing over the SMT and trying to understand what made it tick, I've developed this understanding of its alignment process. It is similar to Ryobi's with a few less ambiguities. There are three steps to follow when aligning the SMT's base, table, and fence. In each explanation, I give a brief description followed by the dirty details.

    THE BASE First, align the base to the blade. Measuring the distance from the blade to some place on the table does this. Move the table to the opposite end of the ...

    BT3000 Belt Replacement and Shim Adjustment
    Instructions from Ryobi Technical Support
    Submitted by Jim Frye
    The following document is transcribed from the sheet that Ryobi Technical Support sends out if you request belt-changing instructions. It also contains information about adjusting the setscrews that hold the guide holder shims in proper alignment and instructions for taking the motor out. Ed Ellickson (see his article elsewhere on this site) expanded on this article to make belt changing even easier. Edís article should accompany this one for anyone planning to change their own drive belts on the BT3K. BT3...

  • Lonnie's No Measure Alignment procedure

    Lonnie's No Measure Alignment procedure

    Hi Guys -

    I haven't been on the forum much lately ... I bought a '55 MGTF-1500 that is taking up space, time, and money that is(was) used by my woodworking shop. The car has a wood frame beneith the body panels, so I guess it counts as woodworking.

    Thanks for resurrecting my No-Measure alignment thread. I see that it has lost some of the attachments. So I reposted it below.

    Note - there are a lot of good ways to adjust a BT3K or any other table saw. This is the one that I found is best for me. Any method that achieves the intended result is just as good.

    I set my rip fence to be parallel to the blade. I rip on both sides of the fence (bevels, size of workstock, etc.), so a setting that will allow extra space on the outfeed of one side of the fence could bind the stock on the other side of the fence. The No-Measure tool is easy for me to use for initial setting plus is a fast way to check that the fence is still in alignment.

    TIP: When you determine which direction the rip fence needs to move to get into alignment, and before you...
