Crosscut not 90 degree using an incra miter gauge. The bad blade should be sharper than the CMT that s cutting straight. Yeah, I can t really explain it either.

That helps actually.

Blade is either bent OR
not fitting on the arbor properly.

As Jbay said;

It SHOULD just make a wider kerf BUT the wobble will push the workpiece “sliding along the miter fence” then spring back.

Under those conditions (wobbling) it would be near impossible to hold the workpiece fixed to the fence with just your hands. Especially so if the blade is thin and raised higher than it needs to be. (flexing blade combined with wobble).
