Default Is this fixable?.

Hello guys, I'm having an issue with my saw currently, and I want to know if this is calibrate-able or if my saw is beyond fixing.

I'm making a crosscut sled for a 45 degrees tilt blade, basically, it's the same as the regular one, just the blade is inclined at 45 degrees, what happens is the following:

- I measure perfectly 90 degrees from the blade to the fence, with the blade at 90 degrees.

- I incline the blade 45 degrees, measure again, I got a different angle, and a very noticeably different one, I'd say, 85 degrees.

I'm not sure I can fix this, but you let me know what you think.

Thanks.

not seeing what happened...
85°???

what are using to measure and where from???

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

Have you checked the screws on trunnion brackets for tight...?

Power off and unplugged, lower halfway when tilted and manhandle the parts from underneath...with the lock on and with it off

Picture from straight above would be helpful...put your square in the picture just like you have measured...

Hi Pablo, are you measuring from the table or the sled?

that could make a huge difference...

I'm measuring from the sled fence.

I will take some pictures if you need so, maybe in my mind it sounded easy to explain, perhaps it's not.

Basically, imagine this:

- you are building a crosscut sled, you finish building it, all your cuts are perfect 90 degrees.
- now you tilt the blade, and suddenly your 90 degrees are gone.

Is that clearer?.
