What do you guys and gals use to ensure your table saw blade is at 90 degrees and not one or two degrees off? Thanks.

I put my accurate square or triangle on the table and against the blade.
Any daylight anywhere on the blade means there is an angle other than 90°

I used to use those plastic drafting triangles but I am much more accurate with my digital angle gauge from WC.

Never heard of a Oneway multigauge until now.
Thanks for the information Lynn, looks like a mighty fine gauge.

Either my starrett combo square or one of my lee valley (pec tools) double squares; whichever is closer.

Used to use a plastic speed square, now use a Wixey digital angle gauge. It’s one of the best woodworking investments I’ve made.

Square. Just a square. I maintain all my woodworking equipment with just a square. A good square.
