Yup, an indicator is pretty hard to beat.

My entire life, my indicator has never lied to me.

I used an indicator to check blade parallel with the miter slot, then checked the fence parallel with the miter slot. I then used a square and feeler gauge to check the miter square. Just like every other saw manufacturer, the miter square isn’t much.
I’m a toolmaker with multiple sclerosis, but instead of selling my tools, I kept everything. My workhorse indicator is an Interrapid, but I’ve found a Brown & Sharpe to be a very, very close second. I needed the best I could find in the shop, you maybe won’t need something quite as fancy.

I have depended on my indicator for so long, when I need to check something I start thinking how to use my indicator. I also assembled the table flat so it’s like a big surface plate, almost.

I wish you the best with your new PCS.
