You need to check the 90 degree stop

Here's how to adjust the miter stop:

thanks,
I did it but it doesn't solve it.
I think that the problem is that there is a slight horizntal digression.
the blade is totaly square to the table, and the gauge is also adjusted.
thanks again.

the problem is that the blade does not enter to the gap between the two yellow plates when I pull the saw down.

My Ridgid SCMS did that. The blade had no problem opening up the slot to fit. Now the slot's just a little wider than when it started.

did it fall off the truck?

I can't see how that's even possible.
My blade has about 1/4" gap on either side of it to the throat plate edges. Even with my saw tilted 35 degrees over there is still about the same amount of gap.

Those plates are adjustable but it looks like yours is pulled away to the maximum...?

If the 2 parallel tubes are twisted that may cause your issue, but that would require a serious drop or bump to the top or bottom of the carriage assembly. Does it slide freely?

Your last resort is a trip to the Dewalt Factory Service center.

That blade looks like its seen better days. Have you tried a different blade yet? When you squared the blade to the base did you turn the blade and check it at several places on the blade?

Sounds like either a blade with some wobble or an arbor issue.

probably not either

An arbor issue or a bent blade would cause a serious vibration... not mentioned so far.

There are some brass grommets that the slide tubes slide on, when I got my saw there was an extra one just loose laying inside that was causing some problems. You may want to check to see if one or more of the brass grommets have moved, worn or fallen out or needs adjusting.

hello,
thanks all!
the arbor is fine, the runout move smoothly without any digression.
i tried to rotate the blade to see if there is a deformation, but it looks like its totally straight.
also there is not vibration or something like that when I turn it on.
I checked at http://www.ereplacementparts.com/dew...1163_2604.html and it has the 77, 79 part but part 78 is missing.
another thing is that the main arm of the saw(part 130) is built with a slight angle on top of it. but it looks like it supposed to be like that.
maybe I can adjust it with the pinion (part 76) somehow?
I thought also to add a washer between the blade and part 79.
thanks!

BigJim, can you tell me where those grommets are at the like that I post here?

They are #123 in the exploded view, (4 of them) they will be located in the slide tube housing or they call it the trunnion #121.
