The guts of the G0715P are very similar to those of the Ridgid R4512 and Cman 21833, which all have several similar reports of alignment problems. It might be possible to align it and leave the blade height set, but I’ve yet to read about someone actually fixing it.

My understanding is that Grizzly is aware of the issue….I’d be uneasy if they tell you otherwise. Contact them and see what they’ll do. The best solution I’ve seen yet is to upgrade to a G1023RL, G0690, G0661 or G0713, all of which cost more, and some of which require 220v. Otherwise, unless they have a new fix to offer, your options are to return it (on their nickel), and buy a different saw. Good luck and please keep us posted.
