Now that my woodworking is getting to a new skill level, I am noticing things that before were lost in the shuffle. Dead on accuracy is one of those issues. And this is where my Makita sliding miter saw is giving me a headache. I did some research online and it seems that the fence on these models is not adjustable enough to give it dead on right angle cross cuts (I’m not even going to look at miters and bevels at this point).
For the life of me I cannot get the fence to stay put perfectly square to the blade. So I’m not the only one, I gether from what I read online. Short of ditching the saw and buying a Kapex, has anyone tried to do away with the factory fence alltogether and build a wooden fence as part of a miter station?
Any ideas would be welcome, as I’m really not in the market for a new saw.
