Yeah, I also have to agree with that Red Headed guy above. Your owners manuals will tell you exactly how to square your tools and blades. Some involve taking certain steps in a particular order first. Also check your fences with a straightedge, like a metal yardstick. I found my old Rockwells fence was ever so slightly bowed in the center. That explained a lot of those earlier errors and caused me to build a new fence. And later resulted in a new saw.

Measure twice; cut once.

And now that you’re blades are squared off, recheck them periodically.

And one more thing…A word of warning if you may: If you think you’re rushing then you’re also looking for an accident. Slow down and keep your digits in place!
