Before you have a coronary, make sure the saw is unplugged. Raise the blade all the way up. Make sure it's set at 90°. Then measure a specific tooth when it's at the front (near the table) to the left miter slot. Rotate the blade so that tooth is at the rear, and take a measurement to the left miter slot. Then compare the two dimensions.My blade is off around a 1/16. I'm not sure its adjustable. Anybody know?
When ripping, you only need to make sure the fence is parallel with the blade. Being slightly open (far end of fence farther away from blade) is not a problem. The reverse is.Looks like I need to check my blade to slot. Thanks CM.
While you are doing your measuring, and you can use a tape measure, it stands to reason you want the fence parallel to both the miter slot and the blade.OK CM. I'll do some more measuring tonight or tomorrow.
