Default Squaring the bridge on EZ1M?

As predicted squaring the bridge on the Max isn't a single adjustment event, but that's to be expected. My question is, when squaring your bridge do you also loosen the bolts that attach the track to the bridge assy. to avoid inducing any stress into the track or do you simply slide the bridge assy. and not worry about the track attachment point?

Red, after getting the whole assembly close to where I want it, I tighten the track bolts and then finish adjusting the bridge assemblies as needed and tighten them to the table. I've never noticed any undue stress into the track doing it that way.

I have a DIY bridge table but I made several adjustments similar to what you describe early on. And there are days when I still don't trust it until a few cuts into a project. But it may be more a habit from my early years with a cheap table saw and even cheaper fence and miter gauge.

Stay at it. I'm sure you'll get it.
