While making sure the blade is parallel to the miter slot and 90° to the top, you need to go the extra step and check the blade itself and the arbor. If the arbor has any play or runout what-so-ever, the blade will not cut perfectly straight. A blade can get distorted because of overtightening the nut or from overheating. If the blade is not sharpened correctly, it can cut more on one side than the other. The more care you take in making sure all parts of the saw are working and aligned as they should, the better will be your results.
