look 'closely' at the edges on the maple in that stack and you can see that I have an alignment issue on my TS.
I'm trying to figure out Where the problem is though...
when I start a cut, it goes fairly smooth until about 20" into the cut, at which point i need to Both slow down and increase the pressure I'm pushing with... to the point of popping a breaker if I push too hard/fast. taking it slowly, I can get through, but with burnt edges. I've switched blades, both of mine are either 'in dire need of sharpening....' or something is out of whack.
I've checked and as near as I can tell the blade is parallel with the fence, and with the miter slots.
now this is the 'best' evidence I've got that the blade and fence are parallel.. I don't have a gauge, so I've used a square, marking a tooth and measuring distance fore and aft to the miter slot and the fence.
HOwever in mid cut, I'm getting a gap:
and yes, the board itself is straight as near as I can tell.
what am I missing in the equation?
