I am pretty satisfied with my alignment; I can move my rip fence from the main table to the aux table and keep alignment -- until I switch my aux table from the right side to the left side. I think it was discussed that the double tilt might cure that but that further investigation cast doubt on it.
If others have a problem using both extension tables I will not attempt to dispute that. For those who do - "It is a fact". I do not but then when I installed the Double Tilt I performed a very deliberate alignment to establish what I believed to be requisite to perfect extension table leg alignment. These four vertical posts (the extension table legs) must be perfectly positioned (with respect to one another) if one expects to move the extension tables back and forth from end-to-end.
I began this alignment with the two headrests assembled on a near perfectly level and flat surface (without the table legs). Then (with the Way Tubes installed) they too were verified to be in proper relationship to one an other. This being done all that remains is extension table alignment. For me, this routine has yielded what I wanted.
I believe it is also possible to get that with the original, but it is far more difficult. A non-level floor affects it.
JPG I am living testimony that it can be done. My Aux table goes in either end of Shopsmith and the connector tubes goes freely through table tubes.
I did mind by adjusting the Allen Screw under the headstock tube connector. After I made sure my way tubes were installed out of tension.
But I will say I was only able to accomplish this after going to the 520. The 510 would not align no matter what I did or tried.
