    1. Refer to the photographs for placement of the clamper.
    2. On the rear view you see the dado I cut in the wood. The dado isn’t continuous depth refer to the drawings. You see what I mean when you look at the shape of the clamper-b part.
    3. You want a tight fit so cut large and then cut for precision.
    4. Make sure these measurements work for your saw.
    5. When installed you want a small 1/64” clearance between the bottom of the fence and the table.
    6. On the aluminum sides leave 1/16” gap between the bottom of the side and the rail it rides on. Only the wood should touch.
    7. Slightly round the edges on the bottom of the wood the rides on the rail. Use a hard paste wax and saturate the end grain. When dry buff to a high polish.

    • Screw friction products EZ-Grip and Screw Grab?
      by LCHIEN
      I was reading an article about fasteners the other day.
      They mentioned a couple of products I had not heard of before:

      EZ-grip and Screw Grab

      Apparently if you have a screw that you have a hard time engaging like a worn Phillips, a drop of these products will increase the friction between the screw and the driver 8X it is claimed so that you can back out the screw.

      You can find them both at Amazon.

      by Lonnie in Orlando
      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...

    • BT3000 To 3100 Shim Upgrade
      by crokett
      Upgrading the shims avoids the issue of the BT3000 shims dropping out and causing the blade-raising mechanism to bind.

      Before you begin:
      Call Ryobi technical support at 1-800-525-2579 with the serial number from your saw to
      verify that your saw is eligible for the upgrade. Some earlier BT3000s are not.

      ‘Right’ and ‘Left’ designations assume you are starting by looking at the front of the saw.
      These instructions assume a stock
