I purchased an older style grizzly tablesaw a few months ago. I replaced the bearings, etc and starting my first real project with it. The problem is the fence has some play in it. When u push against the end near the blade,there is about a 1/16" play. I made sure all the screws are tight but the play is between the fence and the rail. I tightened the set screws up but then the fence won't slide. Any help would be appreciated as I am now just clamping down on the other end which is a pain.

look at these photos

This is a newer Biesemeyer fence, but the construction should be similiar. Note how the cam and lever operate to press against the front of the rail. On the rear of the fence is a spring pressure bar.
The adjustment to snug it 2 set screws that increase the pressure on the back of thre spring bar.
