i have a 10in rexon table saw model# RXW-10. this company made this saw for other brands as well such as craftsman which i know used to have a saw just like the one i have. this model is still made for the european market.(it has metric bolts on it what a PITA) i worked it off from a neighbor who had never used it for the 20 years he had it. the blade is out of alignment with the miter slots by about 1/32-1/16". It has table mounted trunnoins which i tried to loosen and shift them. it didnt move. i dont know if it because i didn't loosen the bolts enough. i first thought it was cabinet mounted but i fussed with it and then had my DUH! moment. heres my sign.. im little frustrated right now because now i have to align the table with with the cabinet which i cant do by myself because that table is so darn heavy. im frusturated because this a beast of a saw but i cant do much with it until i get tis figured out. please help

Those look like classic table mounted trunnions to me. You'll need to loosen the 2 bolts on each trunnion bracket (front and rear), and "persuade" the trunnions into alignment with the miter slot (don't over loosen the bolts so that the trunnions drop from the table). Usually some 2-by material and a mallet work well. It can be tedious, and often requires several trial and error attempts to get it right. Get it as close to dead on as you can, then fine tune it by adjusting the fence. If by chance the connecting rods are twisted, you'll need to address that issue too.
This article might help, a dial indicator isn't required...a combo square will suffice too. You might also want to look into getting a set of PALS.
