Hello there

is there any tricks that any of you might know about perfectly aligning my fence with the blade ?
it seems to me I always have to jiggle with it to get it parallel.
I can't afford the $300 fence systems out there so any help or maybe some cool jig plan would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Thanks a lot

For whatever reason I didn't think about taking the plastic cap from the further end of the fence.
I did it and I think I can adjust it. I will adjust it tonight and see how more precise it gets. thanks for the help.

Now I am wondering if any body have any good recommendations about a good sacrificial and very flat piece of wood to put against the fence ?

For your sacrificial piece of wood MDF is flat and will be stable assuming you can screw it in from the other side. I piece of solid stock like pine will cup or bend on you. Better to go with mdf or plywood. Plus they are cheap. (at least shop grade on the ply though. Construction grade warps pretty bad too)
