I just replaced my stock blade with a new one from forrest. I'm still getting the same hash marks on the stock that I previously blamed on the original blade. I have a minimax cu300 smart combo. I get the marks on both sides of the blade. It doesn't matter if I use the slider or the rip fence. I can go down the street to a friends house with a benchtop saw and get a better cut. It's very disappointing to spend this kind of money and not get a better cut. Thanks for any help. Here a couple of pictures to hopefully help. Minimax has been great to me but they don't seem to have a fix for this problem. The top pic came off the slider if that helps.
