I feel for you, man. I hope others with Kobalt experience come along with good feedback.

I would only suggest that you try to determine if forces caused by a running motor might be causing the problem. You’d do that by rolling (motor off) the blade along the surface of a work piece, allowing the blade to make slight dimples in the wood as it rolls. Then engage the motor and make the same cut. If the cut line tracks the “dimple line,” then the drift is not being caused by the running motor.

-- I'm selfless because it feels so good!
