I am very familiar with the basics of this procedure. My question is as follows…what I have found is that when I tighten down the fence handle, the fence is very true and square. However, when I raise the handle, the back of the fence kicks out to the right by about 3/16”. So the issue is that – let’s say I need to make a minor adjustment to a cut in the range of 1/16” – as soon as I raise the handle, the fence cocks to the right, so now the squareness to the blade is off and it’s harder to tell my 1/16”, even when I use the tape measure on the fence rail.
I really don’t know what to adjust in this scenario…I have gone through the entire alignment procedure. This is the only saw I have owned, so I have nothing to compare it to, but it seems any T-square style fence should not become in and out of square – at least not to the point of moving 3/16” or so – simply by raising and lowering the handle. Am I wrong? Any thoughts on how to fix this? The fence slides very smoothly when the handle is raised, for what it’s worth.
Thanks in advance for the help.
