When cross cutting the piece on the left side of the blade is square but the piece on the right has a 88 deg cut(just not square!). The piece on the left has blade and burn marks, while the piece on the right side does not. Blade is 48 tooth carbide with lots of service but seems sharp. Is it just a new blade in my future. I'm cutting oak. TY.

The blade is not aligned properly. There are instructions in the manual to align the blade. I would start with that.

It sounds like Rons got it--However as long as you are tuning up the saw--make sure that the rear fences(left and right) are square to the blade and aligned with each other.--Mike--

Yep. The blade's not tracking in a straight line. Each adjustment will affect the next adjustment. Get it tracking first, then adjust the blade square to the surface of the table. Then adjust the arm so the blade tracks square to the fence.
