anyone can tell when its RIGHT! if you put in a single switch upside down it tells you “no” RIGHT side up it says “on” same with a tape measure if you measure from left to right with the tape in your RIGHT hand its RIGHT side up. Measuring from right to left its upside down. Most non screw drive saws are for left handers because a RIGHT handed operator has to stand over the saw to see the blade on the line.(or else they would have to use a left hand thread to hold the blade) Table saws mess with your mind. I am RIGHT handed (as if you couldn’t tell). I make my adjustments with my RIGHT hand so I have the fence on the RIGHT side of a LEFT tilt saw (very seldom do you want to tilt the blade into the fence). Of course this forces me to use the tape in my LEFT hand reading left to right witch as implied before is wrong and has caused some incorrect measurements 18 1/4” actually created 17 3/4”. lol.Right hand tilt saws were only invented to remove the opportunity to blame the saw for making dimensional mistakes RIGHT?
