I agree 100%, the table should be returned. Having different levels will cause your depth of cuts to change and parts will not fit correctly. I know many in europe prefer the sliding table power tools but I think you would be better off with a solid table. The more moving parts the greater the likelyhood of debris throwing your measurements off.

Welcome to the forum Bob, you won't get any better advice than you just got from those fellas. Take it back.

same problem with mine,

sliding table is bowed up in the middle
and does not sit squarley on the runners.

(solution throw it away replace with piece of kitchen worktop and use jigs)

cast iron bed is not flat approx 1.5 mm dip in the middle

(take it off and have it machined correctly)

ALLTERNATIVELY THEY SORT THERE LIVES OUT AND SELL SOMETHING FIT FOR PURPOSE



contacting supplier today see what they say.

my recomendation DONT BUY ONE OF THESE.
