I really think that I have runout. I have a large amount of blade wobble that is easily visible upon start up and shutoff. The kerf is also larger on both sides than the blade itself. Lastly, if I mark a tooth on the blade and set it firmly against a keft in a cut piece, as I rotate the blade from front to back, it will shift away from the cut. If I keep rotating the blade by hand, the teeth move closer and farther from the kerf whether it is measured from the back or the front. If that is not runnout, I have no idea what it is. Oh, and the blade is a brand new Diablo that is dead flat.

Now as for fixing it, how do you align the miter slots to a blade that is attached to an arbor with runout (if that is the case)? The miter slots are parallel and the sled slides easily.

One last thing. I believe my last thread was because of my old crosscut sled. I don’t know what happened, but when I made it, the cuts were square but at some point something happened and it wouldn’t cut square anymore. That is why I made the new one.
