  • Another 3660/3650 Assembly Q.- CI wing flatness to main table

    When doing final adjustment of the side CI wings to the main table, how flat is flat?

    When I put the straight edge across the main table it is also about as flush as my straight edge. I can maybe see light shine through on one or two places, but can't get a piece of paper in any gap (real or imagined).

    Using the c-clamp technique from the online manual to do wing adjustment and truing I got it perfectly flush (at least as flush as my straight edge) on the front edge where the rail will go.

    However, when I put the 24" straightedge so that it goes from the main table across to the wings, I can see a gap or two that I can slide the edges of one or two sheets of paper under. Also, on the left wing, I can feel that the wing isn't perfectly flush. Maybe a couple pieces of paper thickness high in front.

    Is this normal/ok? Am I being way too anal for a piece of workworking equipment?

    Depending on the exact location, it'd generally take a pretty darn big deviation to translate to a measurable cutting error. As long as the wood passes smoothly over it, and the saw cuts accurately, I wouldn't give it any thought. Setup is the place to get picky....fence and blade alignment, miter gauge, stops, blade selection, splitter alignment, ZCI, etc.

      As long as you are flush at the wing joints (table top, front and rear edges) you're good. Took me a "minute" to figure out the gaps you're talking about don't affect accuracy.
