Table Saw: Bad angle cuts

If the table saw makes bad angle cuts, check the blade angle with a combination square at the 90-degree and 45-degree angles. Adjust the bevel stops if necessary. Compare the bevel pointer to the corrected blade angle and adjust to match the degree of blade angle.

The table saw blade becomes dull with use. Cutting hard wood or metal dulls the blade faster. The blade is dull when you must apply significantly more than normal force to push the piece you're cutting through the blade.
