Saw cuts inaccurate angles


*hic-up* I uh, um... *hic-up*....... It's just water for me all day.

Yep, I did check to make sure the blade is 90* to the fence when it's upright.

Sure I can post a pic of the piece of wood with it against the blade.

A meth lab, with kids in the house?

I always make mine run to the store for beer and cigs when I'm mixing up a batch.

Lose the bevel, put the blade at 0* and measure if the blade is 90* to the fence.
Eliminate all variables:
Set the saw to 90 degrees using a framing square against the blade and fence, no bevel. Now make a cut on a piece of 6" wide plywood holding it firmly against the fence and flat on the table, and check it with a known 90 degree speed square or framing type square. It should be 90 degrees dead on if not, you got some justin' to do Lucy! Eliminate all variables. Now set the bevel to 45 degrees make a cut, flip one board and join them together to see if they "mate" bevel to bevel. If they don't fit your bevel angle is off. The blade needs to be sharp or you will get "creep" in your angles and that ain't good either!
Try this and report on what you get. OK? bill

I caught a toddler pulling a bunch of it out of his diaper bag one day. He was going to trade it for some gummy bears over at the neighbor's house.

Saw cuts inaccurate angles


Since I started this [roject, I've been to the store for a framing square, a speed-square and a protractor.

Every measurement I take measures at 45* or 90*. I didn't use the framing square though. I couldn't get it up against the blade and the fence or table at the same time, the safety gaurd was in the way.

I'll try fitting two pieces together inside the framing square.

Thanks for all the suggestions everyone.
