Tablesaw alignment puzzle

2876 Views 12 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  MAFoElffen
I have a problem with alignment on my tablesaw crosscut sled. When I cut on the right hand side of the blade, I get a satisfactorily square cut. When I line up to make the cut on the left side of the blade it is not square. I've checked everything I can think of for square. The fence is straight. The blade is parallel to the miter guage slots. The fence is 90degrees to the blade.
Any suggestions?

Nick may be on to something. The arbor could draw to one side or the other if there is lateral play in the bearing. The blade may remain tight to one side on the right hand cut, but move from one side to the other on the left hand cut causing it to appear that the tracking is not parallel to the grooves.
