MFT/3 Top not flat
« on: July 12, 2017, 03:49 PM »
I received my new MFT table and the top is not flat. The top is crowned in the middle, almost 3/8's of an inch, very disappointed in this, as I got this table for a flat work space. They are sending me another top but I am not sure about the tolerances on the mounting holes. If everything is lined up and the top is crowned will the mounting holes line up with a flat top. Has anyone else had this problem with their MFT table?

My two MFTs sagged after about 6 months. I flipped them over, but no longer expect them to be perfectly flat.

Enjoy your new top.  The mounting holes are usually spot on.
