CMS OF - Sliding Table Height?
« on: November 11, 2012, 09:16 AM »
Hello all,
I have purchased the CMS OF unit and was quite impressed on how easy it was to install and set up.  I have a question for anyone who has some experience with the unit.  Is the sliding table supposed to be flush with the main table or be slightly higher.  If it is supposed to be slightly higher, then, when you apply pressure on the work piece, it does not hit the bit at 90 degrees, it is at a slight angle.  Which is the correct set up?
Thank you for your help.

The manual says to have the table slightly higher, I believe 1mm.  I adjusted mine to less, maybe .5mm and all is well for me.

 My table is even with the main top. The fence is 1 mm above the table. The rail for the sliding table is 1-2 mm below the tables.

Most important thing, that the table tops on the same plane all the way across the entire surface and at all positions of travel. 

I love this table with the sliding fence by the way.
