I have this saw and find that if you try to keep some slight pressure against the front rail and hold it flat against it, it will slide smoothly, but otherwise can get stuck when trying to slide. I also had the problem with it scratching the top of the rail, but it hasn’t gotten any worse and I don’t really worry about it anymore. If you are having trouble with the set screws, when trying to square it to the table or dial in the height, you can also adjust the height of the fence faces slightly. If you flip the fence upside down, you can access the bolts that hold the faces on. If you loosen them, there is a small amount of adjustability to the faces. One of the faces on mine is slightly concave and the other is flat. Since, I don’t really use the right side, I ended up swapping them around. After doing this, I had issues with the set screws either sticking up above the table or bottoming out, until I realized that I must have changed height of them and had to readjust. If you are still having trouble, you can give this a try and see if that helps. It’s a bit of a pain, since the fence has to be upside down. Also, I found that I had to remove the indicator/cursor on the left side, as it was causing the screw heads that hold it on to be too high and interfering with stock during rip cuts. I don’t really use the fence on the left side of the blade, so this didn’t matter. Once I was able to get everything dialed in, I haven’t had to re-adjust anything yet and have been happy with it.
