Topic tags/keywords: table saw fence align craftsman 21833

hello, I moved to live in thailand, and here table saws are either crap low quality or overpriced high end ones!
I always wanted to buy the ridgid r4512, and even if ridgid have business here, they don’t sell their table saws.
After long researches I finally found the exact copy (coming most likely from the same factory) of the 10” contractor saw craftsman sears#21833, which I know is something like the sister of the ridgid.
it has same boxing, same manuals, same everything, except for the color and the low quality blade.
now I’m facing a problem, and I would like to ask if someone already had the same using their craftsman one.
I have been able to align the blade to the miter slots and the fence as well.
now every time I slide the fence, it has a little racking from front to back and when I lock the fence, it slightly move either left or right at the end. to avoid this, I have to push the fence hard forward and then lock it.
in this way, when I lock the fence, it rests on the two alignment pads and stay square.

is there anyone who can give me some advice on this issue?

thank you in advance

Pushing the fence forward when you lock it is a common and recommended practice for a fence of this type.
