Just bought a TS3650, I love it! However, I noticed that the fence is square towards the front of the saw, but it is off by a little more than a 16th of an inch at the back of the saw (closer to the motor) after I tighten it down, is this normal? If I pay really close attention then I can jimmy the micro adjustment knob back and forth to get the fence exactly parallel to the blade, but I think there is something I am missing, any thoughts? I have adjusted the saw blade, tightened the trunnions, and adjusted every part of the fence itself exactly as the manual tells me too, but I have not been successful in correcting this problem. The only area that I find a possible fault in is on the front of the fence, on the part that attaches to the actual aluminum rail, there are 2 plastic parts, one on each end of the "T", these plastic parts are what rubs against the aluminum guide rail. I think one of these plastic has worn down unevenly on one side, to me it looks like it has worn down a little less than a 16th of an inch on on end (due to rubbing the rail) and has no sign of wear on the other end. Maybe this small change is whats causing the other end of the fence to be off by the 16th? Has anyone else had this problem? I this a normal or acceptable measurement for the fence to be off by a 16th of an inch? Is there anywhere I could buy those small plastic pieces and replace them to see if that is my problem? any ideas would really help, thanks!
