Table Saw Question
Firstly, I apologize that I have a Harbor Freight table saw - it's what I have and what I can afford and it, mostly, satisfies my needs for a table saw....BUT....I can't, for the life of me, get it to saw a square crosscut. I square the miter gauge to the blade with either a drafting triangle or carpenter's square, then draw a square line across the board. When I make the cut, it always ends up straying from the line - as much as 1/8" on a 1x10! I also had an old King Seeley that did the same thing and I ended up parting it out (not an option with the HB...LOL). Is there some sort of adjustment that I can do to make this thing cut square or should I just scrap it and try to find something else? I don't use a table saw much as I mostly build guitars but do make the occasional table or bench for family and friends and it would be nice to just toss a 1x up there and know it would cut square.
