Shop Fox 1671 Benchtop Mortiser
I just started assembling a used SF 1671 and when I put on the fence, I noticed that is is not square; in other words it isn’t parallel but is slightly skewed (should have taken a pic).
I’m sure this isn’t a defect as there is only one way it can be installed. It’s sort of a rack & pinion design with a clever micro adjuster.
Can anyone explain why it is skewed? Also any advice with regard to setup of these machines will be most appreciated.
This is my first experience with a mortiser. Tonight I hope to give it a run with some test pieces.
