Assuming you mean what you said:
| side of fence
that angle not being exaxtly 90 degrees, I'm not sure there's much you can
do about it and it's not likely to make much difference to anything anyway.
For precision cuts you have to get out your ruler anyway, and for
construction cuts who cares? I suppose you could grab a file and start
modifying the handle accordingly, or grind it, but I don't see the problem.
Especially since you included no useful detail other than a general
statement about it.
One should expect a fence to be square to the table. Most good fences have
this adjustment to correct for squareness and getting precision cuts that
are repeatable is not a problem when again using a decent fence. I have not
used a tape measure to set up a cut in years unless cutting dado's on a left
Well, nothing is ever perfect...
If the fence is well-built (sides parallel to each other), then you can
look for its
attachment point to the slide/lock mechanism and file the attachment
to change the tilt. If it's 'way out of plumb, shimming (adhesive to
hold the shim
in place) can work, too.
It's unlikely Delta or the dealer will be happy about swapping parts,
since the fence
is functional, but they might have some ideas; the slide/lock takes its
orientation from some surfaces that ride on the rail, and those
have some adjustability that isn't obvious.
IMHO a user should sharpen all the chisels he uses, and tune all the
his tablesaw. I'm even a little disappointed that carbide blades
Yeah, there's only one screw, though. It's on the right side, and it's
for the ruler cursor. The two screws that you can't see (they're in
the channel, facing the back of the saw) are to get the fence parallel
to the blade.
