Just bought. A few problems.
One of the extension tables had several pretty deep scratches in it when I took it out of the box. It does not look like this saw was bought and returned because all the parts that were in plastic sleeves were still intact. Aggravating and disappointing, but not my major concern.
I have spent several hours trying to get the fence to slide freely. From the left side of the table until the right indicator reaches about the 9 inch mark, it slides fine. When the right indicator gets to the 9 inch mark, it becomes very difficult to move and when it does move, it makes a groaning noise. I have loosened and tightened and took apart and re-installed and tightened and loosened, etc and can NOT get anything to change. I have checked the rails for level, made sure the extensions are flush. The distance from the rail to the table top is the same at the front and the back of the fence and does not fluctuate. I am at my wits' end as I can not think of anything else to try. Also, my fence will not "lift off" of the rails like I have seen others say. It has to be slid on from the end of the rails.
Has anyone had these issues? If so, any tips would be helpful. Thanks
