Need help with radial arm saw

Hello all, I'm new here and need help with my craftsman radial arm saw.

It is a 2006 model. I have squared the new blade both horizontal and vertical.
My problem is when I cross cut wood, pull the saw it makes a slight wavy cut. I stand the wood on end to a square and I can see light between the square and cut.
Is there an adjustment or something to this saw to correct my problem.

Thanks for your reply.

In the 70's I had a Craftsman RA saw and I couldn't keep it adjusted. Of coarse yours is newer and I hope better but if you can't get it fixed don't hold on to it. I kept mine way to long. In my opinion if you only have a RAS and not a table saw sell it anyway and get a table saw. You will thank later.

Look for looseness in slide assembly bearings if it like mine the bearings are adjustable
