I have a new B&D Firestorm FS100L Compound Miter Saw, that has one small alignment foible, which is the laser alignment guide is off by about 2mm, Basically it is parallel with the blade, and off to the left by about a #2 pencil width. I CAN compensate for this by putting the laser on the left side of the cut mark, but hey, I paid for a saw with laser alignment. I want it to be dead on...

Who can tell me how to adjust this thing?

I have the same issue with my Ryobi CMS. The laser's aim is off by just enough to throw off the cut if you align the piece to the laser mark.

Sorry, I don't have a fix for it, I didn't bother to mess with it. After a few mis-cuts (and my resulting frank words to the dog about shoddy technology nowadays...), I ignored the laser and just set up the cut by bringing the saw down on the piece to make sure it's aligned with the mark (the saw is not running, of course), then I turn the saw on and make the cut.
