makita compound saw help
I have a Makita sliding compound saw LS1016L. The blade is out of alignment. I have been trying to align it by rotating the adjusting bolts in the back of the saw but nothing seems to saw get the blade to cut square. I think that the bevel is the problem but not sure. The owner's manual doesn't provide me with the clear instruction I need to make the adjustment. Any suggestions?

your dead stops might be off.

try this link, it shows how to tune just about every current mitre saw on the market

Should be as simple as setting a speed square againt the blade (making sure it's not againt the teeth) and adjusting the stops with a couple of wrenches and a phillips screw driver on the plastic indicaters.
