Newb here, and bought my first table saw Sunday and still trying to get it ready. Problem is like many have had, alignment of the rails. 3 of the 4 are good, but the rear right won’t go high enough. At the highest where the hole is drilled I am about 1/16th off. I see my 2 options as, drop the right rail, and shim the pad the fence tracks on, or enlarge the hole for the rail so I can raise it high enough.

If I enlarge the hole, I am thinking I should take a file to it as I do not have a rotary tool to do fine grinding.

Any suggestions on how I should move forward?

Modifying the rails should be a last resort. If the fence sides are dragging on the top they have some adjustment play by loosening the bolts in the center that connects the fence sides.

Won’t that just make a larger gap on the left side under the fence? Yes they are dragging on the table on the right side of the table.

Are you saying forget alignment and just raise toe fence higher?
