    Hi Rob,

    Just finished watching Display Case Episode #3.  I'm thinking that the throat adjustment problem you encountered on the #8 was caused by the High Angle Blade.  The 20 degree back bevel would lower the cutting edge closer to the face of the frog much like using a thinner blade would and necessitate moving the frog forward beyond it's designed adjustment limit (actually shortening the length of the primary bevel).  I checked mine with a standard blade and no problem closing the throat to zero.

    Nice fix though!

    Carry on.
