Ok quick overview my table saw has a delta fence. the rail if you look length wise installed on saw it has a bow to it. I got a new fence system same one the other day put it on and same bow. I lowered the legs on the extension table still no difference. Seems to work the same and I figure it shouldn’t affect side to side axis.? Its driving me crazy..?? Should I redo it and force it straight?

As long as it’s straight (parallel) to the blade and miter slot, it doesn’t matter if there is a up/down bow to it unless it’s so bad that really thin stock might slip under it. Also, are you sure it’s the fence and not the table? Put a straight edge on it to be sure.

Cheers,
Brad

I have a unisaw retrofitted with an older bies fence. The holes in the extension wings were off on both sides, causing the rail and tube to deflect a bit. I had to waddle the holes out a bit a it worked like a champ. Don’t know if this is the same prob you are having?

Man, I can’t even imagine bending that extruded rail at all. I would think that at only 1/16” you’re probably right about being overly concerned. I would be too though.

Have your say...
