#3 _ The sides of the fence have some play to move up and down. Loosen the large nuts inside the box tube from the bottom access holes. Some folks have also added a shim under the backend nylon block to raise up the backend.

Not sure what the deal is with #1 and #2.

You sir, are the man. That did the trick. Adjusted the one side that was off and now I’m even across the whole thing!

If adjustments are needed, slightly loosen the bolts on the side needing adjustments then tap or whack with a mallet until even and lock down.


You sir, are ALSO the man! In using the strategy above, I was able to get the guide tube aligned so now my fence is within 5/1000ths of an inch. While it may not be the 1-2/1000ths that most try for, I think it’s good enough to where I can actually get started!

Now, I just have to adjust the 90/45 degree angles and then I confirmed my blade is off 4/1000ths of an inch. That I may try to dial in a bit, providing I can find the right method to do so since I know there is much debate on this model.
