Ridges on spoilbardmafter surfacing

I was having the issue of ridges on my spoilbard after surfacing on my new Shapeoko 3. Went on line and looked and tried everything recommended. Tried adjust rails and everything shifting them, etc. they were rock solid and didn’t budge a micrometer. Went to see if the bolts holding router holder could be adjusted, but same thing. Had taken the router out to do this, and when I went to put it back in, I noticed a slight wiggle between them. So I canted the router to the opposite direction of the low and of the bade and Voila! That seems to have done the trick. Now where I had clearly defined ridges, I only have very faint shadows.

Sometimes drilling put the powdercoat on the X end plates give you just enough adjustment as well.
