So I am working on making some boxes out of thin stock. The saw has markings on the degrees, but they seem HORRIBLY inaccurate. All my cuts seem to be taking away more stock than needed so I get imperfect 90 degree walls when matching pieces up.
It is not the end of the world, but it is unsightly to see the small gap in the edges when glued up.
Does anyone have a reliable way to measure 45 degree angles of the saw blade? Also I assume a flat tooth blade wouldn’t be the issue, but mine as well throw that in there. I am using a 10” Freud flat tooth blade.
Thanks a ton in advance.
I do have a number of tools that measure 45 degrees, but it’s hard to tell as the blade only comes out of the saw so far and I am unsure if it is actually accurate or not. I can just do test cuts until it is close, but this is just needlessly wasting lumber.
