You want the manual for the 708718R fence or the manual to your band saw?

http://content.jettools.com/catalogs...g-2010-web.pdf
Latest jet woodworking catalog shows the fence but it is not found on their manual web page.

If you need the manual to the fence, call customer support.

I have the manual for the bandsaw. I need the one for the fence. It's a little out of alignment.

Thanks for the link to the webpage. That's quite a list of manuals. Unfortunately, the fence was not on it.

I'll take your suggestion & call customer support.

Thanks very much for the reply.

Do what Alex shows to do first in the below YouTube. Then mess with your fence.

You may very well find your fence is just fine!!

I also have the Jet band saw. I installed the 6" riser. Runs like a dream after the setup per that video.

You are correct. The adjustment is all that was needed.

It's cutting to my satisfaction now. My blade was too far forward, i.e., not properly centered/aligned & tensioned incorrectly. I have a renewed appreciation for this bandsaw.
