Posted on Rigid R4512 seems too big for me, but I don't need mobility. What to get?

Test the alignment before you assemble it, then raise and lower as well and re-test. I could align mine to 4 or 5 thousands, but if I raised or lowered the blade it was out again. Always lowering the blade then raising up to the height you want helps. Also, the fence locks down at the front and rear and the rear lock can make side of the fence move. I found that leaning on the portion of the fence just past the front rail helped with reducing the movement.

My picture is a small oak cutoff that my 4512 sent into the garage door insulation.

All of my problems disappeared when I got a sawstop, so I think 716 is way off base.
