How did you “confirm square with the table”? If it was a “little bit off” it would account for a lot of wandering blade. Do a very careful job of drawing the blade’s drift angle on the table and meticulously align your fence parallel to it. OR : get the widest-set blade you can find; Timberwolf 1/2” 2 TPI blades from Suffolk have about the widest set angle I know of and should eliminate your blade drift problem. It might be slower going, you’ll leave a wider kerf, but you’ll get it cut straight.
