My older one was a beefier and heavier jig. I went to Lowes to look at the jig they had in stock but it was in a box and they wouldn’t open it, so I drove to a woodworking store about 30 miles from my house and they had a new delta assembled and on display. When I placed it on a display table saw I noticed that it had a slight wobble in it. I brought this to the attention of the store and we adjusted the miter bar. There was no slop in the bar but the base of the jig still had a slight wobble and did not have a good solid fit in the table saw top. No adjustments to correct this. We brought it over to a differrent table saw, a Powermatic, and it was the same. Then we tried it on a third saw, a SawStop cabinet saw, with the same results. Store owner and I agreed this was not good.
