In am installing cast iron wings on my new table saw and have a question about leveling. I do not have a precision straight edge, but initially put the wings on being sure the mating surfaces were aligned, but found using 48” straight edge (one bought from one of the big box stores years ago), that I can see the outer edges of both wings are higher than the inside edges and the saw table.
My first attempt to fix it, was to place a thin strip of blue tape near the top edge of the mating surfaces to bring the outside surface down. To my surprise it was too much. So I thought I would just remove only to find the outside surface is high again.
I have been thinking of resorting to using aluminum foil, which is thinner (or at least seems so) than blue tape to bring the outside wing surfaces down. Here is my question: Does anyone have another other tricks that I might try? Or do I just go with making sure the mating surfaces are aligned?
