Test to see if the guide post stays in line. Maybe some dust got in there and is moving the guide post.
It should be able to cut a straight line with the side guides backed out. Of course, never touching the rear bearing. I follow the advice of moving my blade back. (Snodgrass) Not quite centering the gullets, but further back and it made a world of difference for me.

If this new blade was run and hit a guide, the set will be off and it will not cut a line. I am no pro on a BS, but I made that mistake. Fortunately a $9 Bosch band.

Does the band feel tight? I run my guides about half an inch above my cut. No more.
