Another 1000HD owner, and also a big fan. Mine came out of the box as square as I could hope to get it. My only two complaints are pretty minor. Like a couple others mentioned, having to use an allen wrench to change the fence length is kind of a pain. I suppose the bolt could easily be switched out w/ a thumb screw, but it hasnt been that big of an issue so I havent swapped it out yet. Also, I found that adjusting the nylon washers to get it to fit into the track to be a bit of a pain. I am not sure if its the same on everyone’s, but the screws seem very “sticky” on mine so there is not a a nice smooth continuous turning, but really jumping an 1/8 turn. It made it a bit difficult to dial in accurately.

Oh, one other complaint…the little screw knobs on the stop block are kind of annoying too. There is not much channel for them to ride in, so I accidentally pop them out all the time.

Having said all of that, I would absolutely buy the 1000HD again and my complaints are very minor compared to how much I enjoy using the gauge.
