Hey guys, the plate crowns downward so from the top of the table the center is higher than the sides. I just found out it’s supposed to be like this: “Molded With Slight Crown For Distortion Free Cuts” I’m confused, how does that create distortion free cuts. Also, the inserts are set all the way in, but still are a little higher than the table. I was thinking I could sand the insert rings a little bit, but the crowning on the plate is completely throwing me off.

Maybe its because I haven’t put the motor in yet, only the fixed base mount from the DeWalt 618 plunge/fix base kit. The motor might be heavy enough to flatten it, I’ll try that early tomorrow and let you know.
