You want it flush with the cast iron main table so the fence doesn't
hang up on the edge when it passes by. The best way I know to flush it
up is to loosen all the mounting bolts on the mounting brackets a
little, then clamp a flat piece of wood to both surfaces in the front
and back. This will get the top surfaces of both parts exactly even.
Now tighten up the bolts, take the clamps away, and it should be
perfect. It sounds more complicated than it is.
The outboard legs have leveler feet. Once you've got the edge aligned,
adjust the feet to get it level.
get it as level and flush as you can. Double check that it's set up
correctly with the weight off the caster. If the table isn't leveled
well against the cast iron wing, the UHMW piece on the bottom of the
fence (presuming you have a Bies...) will take a wack each time you move
it towards the higher table.
It needs to be flush and level. I was able to do it with mine. I did
struggle with it however. The way it is attached is the same as their
contractor saw. I struggled with it and again with my Unisaw. I even
stripped a bolt both times.
Keep at it and you'll get it done.
FLUSH and Level is the right way. If it is not flush, the fence will
catch it either coming or going
If absolutely impossible to get it level, then maybe a little bit of
of tilt AWAY from the extesion-saw junction would not be too terrible
a thing but better would be level
