I’ve had my PM1000 for about 5 monthes now when I rip a board I get a light brown power substance on the fence side of the board, I assume its coming from the fence, is this normal?

I don’t get this with my PM2000, doesn’t sound normal. Or is it sawdust? Have you checked your dust extraction hose and cabinet for clogging or excess dust?

Sounds like you need a new saw. Send me your address, and will take the problem child away from you as soon I as can. LOL

Ok Seriously,
Current version at local store use HDPE plastic fence face, that should not be generating any brown residue.

What is your accufence face made from?
(MDF can generate brown residue with rough board edge)

What is face and board surface finish?
(Rough surface could be sanding the edge of board)

Don’t own PM1000, have no clue what’s happening; watching out of curiosity. :-0)
