Topic tags/keywords: bosch gcm12sd fence question

Has anyone else experienced this problem with the GCM12SD from Bosch? I bought this a week ago and noticed as I was doing some precision cuts that the fence is not 90 to the table.

If the fence has hardware on the end(s) or has screws(set) on the beam rail.
Hardware on the end of the fence-
Loosen and set the perpendicular with a square.
Screws on the beam, do the same.
Don;t be afraid to loosen a set of screws at a time, see what moves when you loosen them. If that doesn’t resolve your situation, try the other. Before you adjust anything you may not be sure of make a small mark with a sharpie so you could reposition it later.

any machine or tool in my shop gets the precision measurement treatment before first use.
