Default Fitting Of Fence On Triton 2000 Workcentre

Hello there,
Hope I'm in the right place to ask this question. Started to assemble my Triton 2000 Workcentre today. When I got to fitting the fence, on one side I had to slacken off the nuts on the springs at one end. So the arm would slide in,the other arm went in fine. I can lock the fence in position. I'm not sure if I have fitted the fence as well as could be done. Any help would be very welcome.
Cheers,
Peter.

Can't help you, Peter.

I only had the Mk3 work centre and had no problem with the fence.

You do not say where you live..

Peter, I'm not sure which springs you refer to. I've had this table since, would you believe, 2000! and I don't recall any adjustments required when sliding in the fence. It's worth taking time to accurately set up the saw, preferably the Triton because that has holes in the base that fit over cams which makes the set-up fast and accuracy is easy to obtain. The rise and fall table is, in my opinion a necessity. Here are some shots of mine which might help.

Harry,

I see that Carba-Tec has them back on the market.

How difficult is it to make sure the fence is parallel to the blade?

Hi Peter

Only just spotted this. Do you mean the flat springs that provide some pressure on the two sliding members that attach the fence? They have clamps back and front, but you usually only need to clamp up either the back two or the front two, depending on how close in you want the fence.

HTH

Using the Triton saw James it's a piece of cake, set the fence so that it reads zero in-feed and out-feed and adjust the cams so that the blade just touches the fence front and back. If on a test cut the wood tightens or loosens during the cut, slight further adjustment is needed but from memory, the initial set-up was accurate and I haven't touched the setting in all these years and if I set both ends of the fence to 200mm, then the piece of wood is exactly 200mm. For a pressed steel table, the results are remarkable. Often at wood shows when I see magnificent looking table saws I become tempted, then I remember what a perfect job the Triton does and the temptation vanishes.
I do recall that when I bought the work-centre I fitted my AEG saw which took over half a day and I still wasn't happy with it so went out and bought the Triton together with the rise and fall accessory (the latter causing me great difficulty to understand the instructions until my granddaughter who would have been about 12 at the time said something like " granddad, do you think it means................"and it did!)
