My recent purchase of a GI 50-175 has been interesting. While it's been great to use, last week it was some blade run out that was thankfully caused by some rust on the arbour plate..
This time though, I'm afraid it's going to be a bit more complicated. I never actually measured the General-T (Beisemeyer copy) fence for vertical squareness, assuming that since this can't actually be adjusted, that it would be correct from the factory. After ripping the faces of a few 3" wide boards, I noticed there was an issue... the fence actually seems to have a "twist" to it..
At the very start of the fence, it is square to the TS top.. by the time it gets to the back end of the fence, it is off by a few degrees.
I'm guessing this isn't something General would swap out for free is it?
My only plan of attack right now is to attempt to peel the laminate on the fence off (heat gun?) so I can unbolt it and then try to shim it, and reattach the laminate.
Has anybody else had this issue, how did you solve it?
Thanks again for your help with my can of worms saw.
