My 14-inch Delta’s table is about 1/16” higher on the feed side than on the exit side. Is this normal? The saw sustained damage, and I want to know if it affected the table. If this is a problem, can it be bent back into shape, or is it brittle?

Update: inserted nail set into hole at end of table slot, which helped. The halves of the table still aren’t perfectly coplanar (used to teach geometry), but I can now slide wood back and forth as needed.

sounds like you’re missing the table alignment pin.

@toolie: yes, I am, but that nail set is a perfect fit. That pin is $5.52 from ToolPartsDirect, but probably with $11.99 shipping!
