@ArtMann – What’s the difference between the two?

Try this for a read on the difference in table saws. There’s no hard and fast rules, as the manufacturers can call them whatever they want, but this gives a good overview of what is out there.

As far as the fence, you might not have to adjust it—that style rarely gets out of alignment. What needs adjusted is the blade/motor/trunnion assembly to make the blade parallel to both fence and miter slots. There should be instructions in the manual for how to do that. Miter slots are fixed, so everything needs aligned to those, not to the blade.

-- - In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.
