Hello,
Just brought a rip fence upgrade for my Bosch GTS 10J table saw. And have followed the instructions (1st time for everything), but every time I push down lever to clamp it pulls to the left. You can see how much it is out from the picture.
Anyone else had this issue?
Any ideas or advice, greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Matt

I’m sure it must be but have you checked the groove in the top is at right angles to the front edge of the saw top? And is the arm holder at right angles to the extrusion that slides up and down?
I would examine the locking mechanism and the parts where things slide along/ across each other and just make sure there is no debris. Apart from that give them a call.

Presuming you have set up the table in relation to the mitre slots
using the pick a tooth method and a adjustable square or fancier.
So is the fence rail 90 degrees to the slots?
It should be easy to shim it on one side with some old biscuit tin.
