So after jointing and planing I go to rip the 4th edge and the beginning of the cut is square but the last inch of the board isn’t. It looks like my blade is taking extra off on the last inch. It’s a new blade, the blade is 90 to the miter slot, splitter is perfect. I will put pictures to get a better idea

Is the fence square to the miter slot?

Are the teeth even coming above the board? Photo the teeth look to be below the surface.

I think this also judging from the pictures. Got to get the blade’s gullets above the wood.

I had a similar problem. I could see the blade move back toward the fence as the wood passed through the blade. I tightened the blade and readjusted the splitter. Seemed to have solved my problem.

I lowered the blade to show what it is doing. Fence is square to miter. I found if I raise the blade all the way up it reduces the bite to about half inch. Thomas0072 I think that sounds like a good solution.

*update- I basically took the whole saw apart and readjusted everything from the fence, spiltter , blade to miter slot. It still does it, so the only new thing is my blade. It’s a brand new ridge carbide blade so I didn’t think that could be the problem but it was!! I put a older blade on and sure enough it worked perfect. Pretty crazy.
