a friend of the family gave me an old craftsman 10" direct drive table saw a few years ago. just recently i've been trying to get it up to speed - made a throat plate, cleaned it up, and have been trying to cut with it. it works okay, but the blade has a slight wobble. i noticed it more last night when i installed a 10" blade - it wobbles maybe 1/8" or 1/16" from side to side, very noticeable.
the washers looked good on my passing glance and there's no noticeable play in the motor bearings, so what's the likelihood of the arbor being bent as it comes out of the motor? what's the best way to check this? i don't own a dial indicator, but i'll buy a cheap one if need be cause it'd be handy to have anyways.
thanks for any advice,
