My Grizzly table saw has a Biesemeyer style fence, When I set up and measure for a cut, as soon as I start tightening up the lock lever the fence moves to the right. If I leave the lock in this position and tap the fence hard back to the proper place and continue locking the lever it doesn't move. Anyone know a solution to this problem?

  • I'll give it a try and see what happens thank you.

  • I believe your idea might be spot on, unfortunately I've been spraying in my workshop so haven't had a chance to check it out, at least now i know it's not a defect. Appreciate your help.

I have a Grizzly tablesaw with the same fence type. I find that when I adjust the fence it is not necessarily square when I move it to the desired dimension. I have to tighten the fence in place to get a fully accurate parallel setting for the fence and blade. Once I have set and unset the fence I can adjust it small amounts without appreciable changes in the angle. Could this be what you are experiencing?

  • This is how my SawStop T Glide fence works as well (it's pretty annoying...). Aug 25, 2019 at 19:09
