Woodcraft offered to give me the table off of their display model they had received at the same time my unit came in. I was happy with that solution but after further inspection by Woodcraft their table had the same issue so I had to deal directly with Laguna.

Laguna gave me instructions on have to fix the table. If you tilt the table all the way to 45 degrees you will see 6 bolts on the trunion plate. There are three Allen adjusting screws located in-between the three sets of bolts. You have to start off by loosening the farthest set of bolts and then adjust the Allen screw. If the far side of the table is higher you will have to start off by turning the Allen head counter-clockwise approximately 180 degrees then retighten the two bolts. And vice versa if the far side of the table split lower. Also loosen the table split clamp prior to making any adjustment. After this adjustment turn the table back to 0 degrees, retighten the table split clamp and check for flatness along the split. It will not be flat without the table split clamp fully tightened. If that didn’t correct it, loosen the set of 4 bolts closest to you and turn the two Allen heads about 90 degrees clockwise (if you need to raise the near side) retighten the bolts and go through the same process above. That’s the general idea on how to adjust the table. I had to go back and forth several times to get it flat as possible but it worked for me.

I hope that helps some of you. Let me know if you have any questions.
