While doing basic maintenance on the machine the last couple of days I found quite a lot of back to front play in the saw spine, so I adjusted the front spine guide to remove the play. however, when I tightened the gray/champagne saw guide the saw would bind on the way down--so much so that I could not lower it. I suspect that I need more shims, at least on the gray guide.
I'm open for other things to look for here. I also checked the alignment of the black guide to the saw spine using scraper cards (my BCTW rules seem too thick). My guide definitely was installed wrong because I had it flush with the outside of the spine guide, which meant it was not aligned with the left interior wall of the saw spine.
So out I go in search of shims today, but all I could find at the big box store that seemed even close to the right diameter were #10 lockwashers and #4S brass flat washers that I could drill out to fit the bolts in the guides. Online it looks like superior washer as the .310 x .025, but I'm not seeing the .01. Anyone know of place where I can buy an assortment in the right OD and ID but different thicknesses?
