I have General 50-200R which I bought new march 2011 – Nice saw so I thought – 1st thing I noticed after a short time was the fence would not stay setup – it kept moving , the more you tightened the top bolt on the aluminum Chanel it would crush it and come loose. Ok I knew it was a cheap fence so ordered a the general T fence, installed it and voila , set it up ad straight cuts , but here’s the thing never cut any wide stuff until lately , when finally had some time to organize my shop and build some cabinates. the 1st one wasn’t all that great , a little out of square. Chalked it up to my in-experience, 2nd one was better but i noticed that I had trouble getting the drawers square. Thought maybe my shop built sled was out , was a little sloppy, made new runner and set up dead on,
Noticed my T-fence was ok 8 or 10 inches from the blade but started to go wide at the back of the table the further away from the blade I go.
I have planed on starting to build my kitchen cabinates this month , but can’t with a saw like this
I really don’t know what to try next. If I can’t get this fixed , Do I have an expensive piece of junk on my hands.
