  • Pins not on spot

    Does not spot pins on spot.
    table has been flagged.
    table and frame height are correct.
    table is level front 1/16th lower than the rear.
    when I do the book adjustments I adjust the spot rod to get the 1/16th gap on the screw it moves the pins almost a full inch forward.
    Could this part be on backwards causing that?
    Sometimes we have to do stuff to get by....Just go back and do it right when the "by" has passed!!

    Yes, that will do it. Pins will not spot if the part is the wrong way round.

    I gather you just recently worked on this?

    Table should be level all the way round - ideally (when empty with no pins) the back should just be slightly higher than the front, so that when filled with pins it will be level.
