I bought a used Bosch 4000 table saw about a year ago. I have found the fence simply won’t stay parallel to the saw blade/miter slot. I set up the fence using a dial gauge. As precise as I have been, I have found, the fence setting won’t stay parallel. As soon as I try to set the fence to rip, the outfeed end of the fence has drifted toward the saw presenting a potential kick back concern as well as an imprecise rip. This is a bench top/portable contractor saw, so I don’t expect the precision of this table saw to be cabinet saw precise, but expect the fence to stay in alignment.
I have concluded that I need to replace the current fence with something that will retain alignment.
Are there any LJ’s out there who have a Bosch 4000 and experienced the same issue and if so, I would like to know how you have resolved it.
