I just received a Delta 14-651 Hollow Chisle Mortiser and when setting
it up found that the fence is not square with the base (tilts back
about 1/8"). The Instruction Manual does not cover this adjustment.
Does anyone have a suggestion on how to square the fence?
I have the same model also, and my fence is almost exactly
perpendicular to the table. I can see light behind my square at the
top of the fence, but it's too small a gap to measure with a ruler
Calling Delta sounds like a good idea.
I went and checked my mortiser --- the same model. The fence was right
on. Since the fence is a casting, it could have been damaged or
improperly machined. It should sit flat on the base. Check to see if
there's something between the fence bottom and the base. If not, I'd
get a replacement from Delta.
