Hi

Recently noticed that my fence keeps shifting after being locked down. Can’t seem to find anything within the manual or online detailing how to tighten this up, anyone able to help?

Cheers

Why is it moving? Is something worn or is something assembled incorrectly?

Hi

Just noticed when pushing the timber against the fence whilst cutting that after the 5th or so pass the fence has moved 1-2mm. Nothing looks worn and assembly shouldn’t be a problem as this is just starting to happen and I’ve had it a couple of years.

Having looked at the mechanism, there does appear to be what looks like a tension screw above the spring, wondering if this just needs a half turn...

Sorted... there is a tension screw/nut further along from the spring. A little tweak and it’s solid again.
