The manual for the saw says that the blade thickness is 2.0 mm (roughly 0.080”). A quick check on the kerf shows it to be about 2.0 mm so thickness here might refer to the kerf with the real plate thickness being less than this due to the set of the teeth. Also I cut some thicker timber and the saw is also showing similar levels of out of squareness in the “chop” plane, so blade deflection in the cut is looking more and more a probability.
Thanks for the saw blade explanation. Checked up on the Freud blade you recommended and it seems to be getting good reviews so I think I’ll give that one a try. Thanks again.
