I bought a ridgid TS24001 on Craigslist a while back and for the life of me I can t get the blade square to the miter slots. I have spent hours over many days and I cannot get it much below a 1/16th of an inch difference from front to back of the blade. I just don t know what else I can do. The saw itself is in absolutely primo shape. It has barely been used but I just can t get it aligned.

Does anyone have this saw or can offer me any info that I might be overlooking?

I have the same saw. Bought it new about 20 years ago. Blade adjustment by always a bear . I Added a couple of washers to each bolt and some white lithium grease and would use a clamp on the trunion when tightening the bolts. Ended up adding saw pals. ALL is good
