Was wondering if anyone has had any issues with the front and back rails not being parallel to each other.

I am adding a router to the underside of of the right side extension, and when i initially cut my plywood for the table top, it didn’t fit. come to find out that from the right edge of the saw which measures exactly 27” in depth. If i take a measurement out at the far end of the rails i measure 27 5/8”...

I have taken the rear rail off and reattached but still no good.. my next step is going to take the front rail off and start all over.

anyone ran into this situation before,

I could see a small difference which could be shimmed, but 5/8” is a BUNCH. Sompin is way wrong.

Check the separation at 3-4 points across the full length of the rails. Sounds like something is bent or the rails aren’t correctly attached to the saw table.

Sawkerf,

Yes I believe i need to take the entire rails system down, and start fresh…The fence seems to operate ok… it does not bind or hang up…

Can you clamp the fence down at its full right travel? If the rails are really 3/8” off, you probably cant’ clamp it down.
