I agree with several of you to stop fretting. As far as a glue joint is concerned, its perfect. So who cares? But as far as perfection is concerned, there is a disturbance in the force, something’s not right, and I’d like to know what. When I ran a cabinet shop there was no way that we could bother with such refinements, we had to get the cabinets out the door and installed.

Tried my old Unifence, same result. So its not the fence. Rechecked the run-out more carefully, and its a total of about .007” not .002 as I had first reported. So I’m thinking that’s the source of the problem. Waiting for a new magnetic base for the dial indicator so I can do more accurate measurements.

As to why I went to Peachtree upgrade fence? It was to have T-tracks along the top for the hold-downs. Also in the normal position it is stiffer than the Unifence. Finally, I cut a big notch in the Unifence when routing something. The sacrificial fence wasn’t quite thick enough so it’s sacrifice was in vain.
