I'd suggest you take it out of the box before you put it on the saw
I'm sure you will find that is just the ticket!

Of course now I can't find your original thread about aluminum cutting so I'll toss my two cents out here. Part of the reason I went with a RAS instead of a tablesaw as my first stationary tool was that at the time I anticipated also doing some materials work (aluminum, plastics, etc). While doing my research I was told that a tablesaw is maybe not the safest idea fo cutting up sheet aluminum - think kickback and then you have a big dull knife blade flying at yer belly.
I machined the DC hood for my RAS using my RAS. Said hood is pictured here.
When I was doing the cuts I clamped the aluminum sheet to the table and even gently placed my railroad track anvil on top of the aluminum to help secure the sheet. If you're going to do this on a RAS I can provide more details on how I did the cuts if you think it'd be helpful.
Best of luck and be safe.
Nice! Enjoy. My wife thinks I spend more time with the UPS guy than her, but that's not true....my time gets split pretty fairly between her, the UPS guy, the US Postman, the Fedex girl, and the DHL guy too!
