The trunnions and table top need to be co-planer. If they aren’t, then the blade will skew when tilting the blade, and will be most pronounced at 45. To fix it, you add shims to either the front or back to make them co-planer. On cabinet saws, you shim the table… on saws that have table mounted trunnions, you shim them instead. At least that’s what I’ve heard – I’ve never had a saw that needed them :)
