I've got a delta 10" arbor saw that has the 30" unifence with rail.
Typically, once the fence is in position, when pushing the handle down
to lock it in place, there is a "normal" resistence and you can "feel"
the fence grip and stay in place.
Now it seems things have loosened up a bit. The handle seems to drop
further, and the resistence and feel of it "locking" in place aren't
there and now it seems to have movement on the other end.
Anyone ever encountered this or have advice on what to do?

The two large nylon nuts on the front of the fence body need to be
adjusted. Adjust them in to adjust clamping pressure and make sure
you maintain the fence to slot alignment as you adjust.
The fit is such that they should not back out on their own. This is
because the nylon nuts have a thread pitch and type that causes
resistance. If your's are excessivly sloppy, you may need to replace

When you are finished adjusting the clamping action, be sure to check
fence alignment with miter slot.
