Ok, so I just received my new Eclips from Amazon.
First thing I notice is that the jaws are not parallel to each other from side to side. A Strong 1/8” out!
I understand that top to bottom is by design but can side to side be adjusted? Or do I need to send this thing back?
Also the dog is 1/4” up when all tIhe way down????
Any feedback is much appreciated. Thank you

If the jaws are positioned like the letter “V”(looking from above), I’d send it back, the other issue with the top to bottom not being parallel(side view), you can account for that when you make the liners (I used hard Maple) by shaving the top half a bit more so they become parallel when the jaws are fully closed.
