Topic tags/keywords: help fence paralok table saw tuning

Hi eveyone. I am a new member!
I have an old table saw that I bought years ago used. It has a Paralock Fence on it that has somehow become slightly out of square. I am getting binding/burnishing when I feed the wood through the saw. Does anyone out there have any idea how to true this fence? THere is very little info out there on this topic. Your help is appreciated
By the way I am making a dining table out of white oak… What a great way to relax

Is there an adjustment on the fence for squaring it?

Is it possible your trunnion has shifted?

First of all, welcome to LJ! I had a problem similar on mine last year (delta unisaw) and found out the table itself had shifted due to loose bolts. Trunnion stayed put, just the table moved. I re-aligned it, tightened the bolts and have no problem since. I sure check them often however. You could check this and see if it is a possibility. Good luck’

This might help looks like on page 6 they describe how to adjust the fence (assuming this is the one you have)

also welcome aboard!

Have your say...
