Default Table saw not square

Hi Guys,
I just got Micro Jig's dado stop pro and I have been cutting a few dados but they aren't fitting. I am wondering if my blade is square or it may be my miter guage is not square to the blade. Any suggesting on testing this out. Ive tried several times to square my blade with a combination square but it doesn't seem to help. Any suggestions?

Jesus was a wood worker and people liked Him, maybe there's hope for me too.
Peace

check the gauge to the blade w/ a framing square that is proven to be square...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Joe, I built this gauge to check my table saw for square. You can buy the dial indicator on eBay pretty cheap.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

but you have to make sure the blade is parallel to the miter slot...
time to go through your saw w/ a fine t5oothed comb,...

Here are some articles that go into the nuts & bolts of the adjustments. You don't say what kind of saw you have; I have a cabinet saw and don't have any articles on adjusting the blade-miter slot other than the one from an old edition of Woodsmith, this should be covered in your manual.

Joe in what way are they not fitting?

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
