I just finished assembly of my G0713, still need to check miter slot to fence and blade alignments. I installed the right wing and it was high, there was a .005 gap under the straight edge. I tried shimming with masking tape but that made it low with a .008 gap, so I found some thin packing paper that was almost 1/2 the thickness of the tape and tried that. It was almost dead level.
My question is about the paper shim I used. Will it hold up over time or should I find some shim stock to replace it before too long? What has been the experience of some of the members here?
Thanks for your options and feedback!
