Having identified the problem, we can go a little further.

First of all, no mfr would want the fence to be that much out of line when the tool sat on a showroom floor.

I think we all agree that a “little out” is no big deal. So the question is why.

My theory is that the parts of the shelf that mate to the body of the tool were never machined correctly. Maybe never machined! So, Dr. Nate, would you be willing to operate a little more and see what those mating surfaces look like?

Just curious….
