Hey, try this. See if you can measure the difference between the bottom and top widths. Then attach a “sacrificial” fence to your fence. (A sacrificialfence is nothing more than a straight piece of wood that is attached to the fence by clamps or screws/bolts.) then use shims (playing cards work well) to shim the top to match the bottom according toyour previous measurements.

A set of machinist’s squares are almost a necessity if you want good setups of your machinery. Especially if you buy them used! You can find a set from Woodcraft for around 20 or 30 dollars. It is money well spent! You can even find them at Harbor Freight if you cannot afford Woodcraft, but you will wish you had bought them at Woodcraft after awhile. Buy the best tools you can afford! But it is best to buy a set of machinist’s squares real soon to check your fences, blades, and wood. You won’t be sorry!

God Bless,
