The runout is compounded quite a bit when you get out to the OD of the blade. Even Unisaw specs say it’s good up to .002” runout on the arbor.

As for your question. I would be disappointed, yes. There’s no denying that and I’d be on the phone too. But it still has the same warranty no? The appearance of the table would not be an issue (to me) since it’s a simple matter to use a granite block and wet-r-dry sand paper to make it uniform in appearance as long as it’s flat and dimensionally good. The miter gage is junk. So was my Unisaw’s and I’m of the opinion that I haven’t seen one yet that is worth using for anything past framing a house type work. Incra is the only way to go there.

But it really boils down to whether you are satisfied. I’d be satisfied with a discount card towards a future purchase as long as the saw was in spec in all regards and as functional as a new one. But everybody’s mileage will vary.
