Hi Holbs. Good point. Just went to workshop and carefully pulled saw over the same oak test piece just kissing the surface and ended up with a kerf maybe 1/32 or so deep. Testing this with a square it appears spot on however then proceeding through the piece leads to the out of square condition. A new and better blade does seem to be the way to go. Things can only get better, right.

Hi therealSteveN. This is a sliding saw and the sliding bearing/deflection in the slide arms is another source of deflection. The new blade may help a little but it does look like for the accuracy I’m looking for the table saw or shooting the end grain after rough trimming to length. Also sorry but newbie question – what’s a TK blade?
