I have an old Makita Mo. 2400B 10” miter saw that was given to me some time ago.
I noticed for the first time that there is a gap of about 0.017” on both sides of the fence at the throat when a straight edge is laid against it.
There is no adjustment to the fence other than overall alignment since the piece is a solid casting, but I can make adjustments to the blade from either side of the blade, but if I am making multiple cuts off a long piece (greater than 9”), then my reference is off and the resultant cuts may vary off of square.
I see no solution except to attach another fence to the casting and shim out the gap. Might any of you have another suggestion?
