Saw cuts inaccurate angles


If ya ever get a wild hair, these blades are fantistic, but they might be more than the saw.

I use them on my table saws and hitachi 8 1/4" slider.

I've got a kapex and the festool 60 tooth blade (10") has been fantastic.

But I use these to make money (or used to ).

I checked the angle of the blade and it's tilted sideways at 45*. The saw has its own markings, but I also used a protractor to measure it.

I'm holding the board tight against the fence and the it isn't moving when the blade is going through it.
If your saw is set properly and those lines are straight then it is either
1 the board is not flat, it has a small cup in it, or
2 the board is not laying down flat on the table of the saw

chaeck the board for a cup with a straight edge like a square and press the board doown while you cut it.
