  • Rip Fence Help

    I've assembled my saw and have been using it for more close to 2 years. I love the thing. It's handled everything that I've thrown at it, but I do have one issue and I hope the folks here can help.

    For some reason, when I move the fence right to left, it comes our of parallel, by maybe a 1/32". When I move it left to right, it stays dead on. I've tried making adjustments according to manual, but it doesn't seem to improve performance. What have I done (or not done)? Any suggestions?
    Thanks
    Jim

    When you lock it down, does it stay out of parallel or does it square itself up?

      Once I noticed the problem, I only lock it down when I move it left to right and it stays parallel when locked down. I've not wanted to tempt fate by having a toed-in fence. I'll check it in a bit and get back to you. If it becomes parallel when I lock it down after moving it right to left, I'll feel like an idiot.

          OK, so I finally got a chance to check out whether the rip fence would lock out of parallel if I moved the rip fence right to left. Well, it does, so I'm still looking for advice on how to remedy this.

          thanks.
