Ok, so I wasn’t quite sure which forum this post should go in, so if it needs moved (Martin, MsDebbieP,etc) feel free to do so. I’m in the process of tuning my new to me bandsaw and tablesaw and wanted to make sure out of all the information I’ve gleaned from here and books, etc that I’m heading down the right path. I’m trying to KISS and not overwhelm myself – yet at the same time make safe, straight cuts. So I guess my question is, how does one verify their miter slots are square so aligning the table saw blade to that would make it a 90 degree cut? is it just assumed or a manufacturer standard to make them straight on the table? (I’m assuming this is the case) I have the basic tools, save for a dial indicator I picked up from HF last weekend that I was/am intending on mounting to a jig of some kind that will ride in my miter slot to check for blade squareness. I think I’ve got my steps in a row?
1. make sure miter slots are square
I tried adjusting my small bandsaw table to be level just by using the adjustment and well that is a whole other post I’m guessing. :)
