    Wadkin PP fence question

    Evening all, not been on here for a while but just acquired this late but rather tired PP (PP 900, tested 1982), and first on the list of repairs is the rip fence, which is a mess. Is it even a PP fence? Looks much older to me and is not the same colour as the saw. It's obviously been broken...

    How flat is your table saw?

    Hi all, well after much lurking and homework I've just joined the ranks of SIP saw owners (01332). Got it secondhand, and just poking around it it seems in fairly good condition apart from two things. Firstly, the table is slightly bowed front to back, to the left of the blade, by about 0.4mm...
