The nearing will follow any imperfections in a "straight" board. The fence will even pot those imperfections and make the workpiece straighter.
It is much like a jointer in this respect.

That makes sense. One quick follow-up. When I adjust the fence by holding a straight edge up against it, should the bear just turn or just be too far back to turn? I'm assuming it should be a hair behind the fence thus not turn...


Thanks for the first answer!

You got it Basement

You're right on but one note, drop the steel ruler and use some plastic or a staight edge made of 1/4" hardwood or the brass set up bars if you have them :)

It is my understanding that when isolating the bearing the straight edge should be touching the fence and the bearing at the same time so the bearing is in line with the fence.
As BJ would say... That's just my 2 cents worth.

Thanks Bj I hope you didn't think that I was trying to correct you. As a matter of fact I hadn't even seen your answer before I posted mine. Yours must have been posted while I was composing mine. :'(
