Does anyone with this saw or a similar model have the same issue with the screw holding the gauge on the fence being above the table surface? When you try to use the fence, the wood rides over the screw potentially rocking your board on the cut, as well as making it near impossible to feed the board through smoothly. Pics will explain better...

Solutions short of removing the bubble gauge?

bubble guage...really?

Who needs a bubble guage on a bandsaw?
Either use contersunk flat head screws or remove the dang thing, if you can't live without it. Never heard of such a thing. :no:

Well, not a bubble gauge, it's a magnifying glass type thing for the fence measuring tape. And it has the red marking line on it when setting the fence. Flat-head screws might work

I checked mine and they touch just barely, however I still have space to lower the rail without the fence hitting the table to solve it. I recently had to take the rail off and looks like I put it back on a bit high. I would guess yours would be the same.
