So, I'm still new to woodworking. Wondering if someone here could help. I'm trying to tune my tablesaw. It's not a top dollar saw by any means. Older craftsman. It's not great but it gets the job done. The issue I have is that when making rip cuts, it will start off cutting straight but about half way through the blade will deflect off the line to one side (usually the left) and then come back center near the end of the cut. Essentially it cuts an ever so slight arc. Maybe 1/32" difference between the center and each end. And each end ends up dead on with each other. By marking a line all the way down the cut you can watch it happen.
I've checked the trunion or whatever it's called. The part the blade mounts in. It's all tight and square. The fence is perfectly square to the blade. Riving knife is perfectly in line with the blade. Blade is at a perfect 90° to the table. Blade is brand new and true. Am I missing something?
