Chris, I think I can fix a good amount of the nod on one of mine prolly won't be perfect and prolly not necessary... but I thought if, I take some black pipe with some couplers
and make a fairly stout adjustable arch under the front so when I need to tilt it just loosen both front and back and tilt it... set it and adjust the couplers to give enough front lift to the table to take out some of the nod it would be much better... I'll prolly get around to it later than sooner but it more for my need to tinker with crap like that plus ill do it on one of the drill presses I don't much care about in case the table decides to snap off...
