I installed my new fence, however the fence is toed into the blade at the back by 1/32

l’ve tried adjusting using both the set screw and re aligning the cartridge by loosening a couple bolts. I have a request in with support, but I think they are closed until Monday.

Any suggestions from anyone else with this fence that has had this problem?

Are you saying that the adjustment set screws are maxed out in opposite directions, and it’s still toed in by 1/32”?

Yes., the set screws are adjusted to the max, and its still angled into the blade by 1/32 at the back.

There are some trouble shooting tips on page 23, section F in the manual….have you tried those yet? Sorry for the all the questions, but am just trying to sort out what you’ve tried so far.

Get a longer setscrew?

I fiddled with it a bit more this evening. I’ve tried the left and right set screws, they move the fence about 1/64 of an inch, but not nearly enough to get it parallel let alone toed away from the blade.

I pulled the locking mechanism off, and loosened the two bolts holding the fence to the carriage (the advanced instructions in the troubleshooting section) but every time I got it into alignment, tightened everything down, and put the clamping jaws back in, the thing was out of whack by the exact same amount.

Finally, the codder pin that holds one of the rods in, fell out, so I had to take the back off the fence assembly, pull the whole assembly out of the center, and then put it all back together. Now it won’t clamp at all, and the spring at the back is very loose.

I’m just going to call CS tomorrow morning and insist they send out a replacement fence assembly. Maybe I just got one that is out of alignment due to a manufacturing error. It seems odd that no matter how I adjust the thing, it goes out of square by almost the same exact amount.

Since all the reviews on this (which were far and few between) were almost all positive I’m inclined to believe that the problems I’m having are the exception, or maybe I’m doing something wrong.

I’ll find out tomorrow what CS has to say.
