My table saw cuts 90 deg square. I don’t have a problem with that. When I use clamp-it devise. the corners are square. The tool that I’m having problems with is the mortise machine.

The back plate is aluminum and when I clamp the wood it causes the mortise to out of square to the surface and when i put the tenon into the mortise it is not straight in line.

I’m going to replace the aluminum with stainless and probably a little thicker than the aluminum to make it stiffer.

But you can’t beat square to make it work.
