Congrats on your new saw, and thanks for posting your thoughts.

You’ll find that cast iron can usually be coaxed into position. I’d try loosening the bolt near the high spot a bit and keep the other bolts tight, while tapping the high spot down, then retighten. You may find it flexible enough to work.

Thanks for the suggestion, I will give that a try and see if it will go. If that doesn’t work maybe I could set it flush in the middle and low on one end and then jack upwards on an end from underneath to flatten it before tightening that bolt also.

I assembled 3 new saws, Sawstop included and the table/wing connection was never perfect out of the box. It is easily adjusted however by clamping the wing flat in one spot only over the bolt, tightening the bolt then doing the same with the next bolt and so on.
Now the most important question:

Check how the blade is parallel to the slot both when the blade is in the low and high position. Is there a difference ?
Also does the blade deviate when you start lowering or rising it ?

Carloz – The blade measures pretty square up and down. I just put my dial indicator on it and it progressively moves about .012” to the right as I raise it from just above the table to the full up position. When I lower it back down it evenly moves back to .000 when it gets back to the starting height.

Is that within acceptable limits by “normal” standards? Seems pretty good to me but this is my first saw so I’m not really sure?

I have not had time to try and align the table extensions better yet but will report back if I am able to get them perfect.

You need to check it at the front and rear of the blade. The difference should be within 0.003 “. Now raise the blade all the way up and check the difference again. If you still within 0.003” you are good.
The fact that the blade goes to the side by 0.012” when being raised is acceptable as long as it stays parallel to the slots.

Do I check it under the table? I’m not sure how to measure parallel when the blade is low and there isn’t much circumference from the front to the back above the table?

You do not lower it all the way. Check when the bkade is at 1 and 3 inches high
