At least on my top, they grinding guys also gave the backside a touch
up, so the three attachment points on the table are coplanar and
parallel to the top surface. When I set it on the cabinet it seems to
rest flush on all three mounting surfaces on the cabinet flanges. If
that wasn't the case you could shim it so there was less possibility
for distortion when you tighten the bolts, or bang the mounting flange
on the cabinet up or down to match the top.
I think the same problem could be had with a mint top since it really
speaks to alignment of the top to the cabinet in the mounting areas.
I doubt they grind the tables originally with them mounted on the
cabinet. Seems like you should figure out how to have a good
connection between the top and cabinet rather than compensating for it
by grinding. And all the blanchard machines I have seem (admittedly
not that many) couldn't take something as thick as a cabinet plus top
between the magnetic chuck and the grinding head.
Anyway, good point that it is something to watch out for.

My woodhaven mitre gauge arrived yesterday. For the record on this
topic, it does stick up out of the reground table by up to maybe 10
mils in some places. I'll probably just do some belt sanding on the
bottom of the slider bar.
