Sounds tricky. I’d be more inclined to go at it with some sandpaper glued to a piece of 3/4” MDF. Nice and flat, and you can use Scotch 77 or something like that to attach the sandpaper without any bulges.

I stand corrected. I went further down the rabbit hole with dial caliper and height gauge. The circular rotating table top is actually not too bad and acceptable (less than 0.01”) so while it is slightly concave, it’s good enough for wood working purposes. However, the entire top is higher than the infeed/outfeed support by 0.035”. This is the problem because this explains why short (less than 6” long) pieces come out square but long pieces come out of square due to the raising of the angle at the blade.

For temp purposes, probably will go layering paper on the infeed/outfeed tables to make things coplanar. In due time, I might disassemble and find out what I can shave off some 0.035” somewhere under the rotating table.
