Or a service manual, please, if you have one. Model 76 EM.

I have only seen this once - we had  a wider verison. They used a carpenter square and squared the blade to the RHS from the OP perspective. There are 4x1 inch bolts under the table and inside the shroud that align the table to the frame. Once through this stage then the back gauge to the side frame after the large bolts are locked back down. Took about a half hour for a service tech.

We have had it done on our EMC 155 but it really didn't stick... or the brilliant bindery has smashed the gate one too many time since then.

Square it but don't replace the broken front limit switch. Genius.
Speed doesn't kill, rapidly becoming stationary is the problem

I'd rather have stories told than be telling stories of what I could have done.
