I recently read an article on setting up table saws and it stated to make sure the fence is perpendicular to the tabletop, having never checked this parameter I went out to shop and did just that. One side of fence to the tabletop formed an acute angle, I then checked the other side and much to my surprise it also formed an acute angle. Then I proceeded to check it with two additional squares and they produced similar results. A rough measurement of the fence with a steel ruler indicated that the top of the fence was approximately 1/32 of an inch wider than the bottom. I brought a calibrated caliper home and confirmed my previous findings, .031 inches off. Is this to be expected of a $600 table saw or do I have a defective product?
