I am still a novice, but really enjoy woodworking and improving with every new project.
Just purchased my Ridgid R4512 about two months ago and love it. Started a new bookshelf project and noticed my blade is 1/16th out of parallel, measuring from the miter gauge slot. I did as the instruction books says and loosened the 4 bolts on the bottom of the unit and moved the back of the blade until it was square. When I re-tightened the bolts, it went back to the old position.
I tried to adjust my fence, but that did not work too good either. I ripped my wood and am not square. This is concerning me because I was having so much fun and my wife really wants a few projects done.
At the end of the day, I can’t make a square cut.
