I had the same problem with my bosses dewalt double sliding chop saw. I tried and tried to set the blade to the back stop using a tri-square. Then I found the trouble. Using an aluminum level against the back stop I found it was out. The level touched at both ends but had a gap on both side closest to the blade. The other thing I found was the plate under the table that the angles lock in to, was off just a very little bit. About 1/6 of an inch. I had to take the saw apart to make that adjustment. Now it cuts true at every angle. Funny thing is we put up with bad cuts for a long time and it took 20 minutes to fix.
