Finally have my saw up and running, (Grizzly g0690 Pics coming soon) My question of the day ( I think I know the answer but just checking) i aligned the blade to the miter slot last night using a sliding square,I think i am very very close ( tooth just touches front of and back) I dont have a digital caliper, question 1 Is this close enough for safe and true cuts ? question 2 in the manual it said a lot of wood workers keep the fence a slight bit out of square, the tail end 1/16” so to reduce kick back I am out between 1/16 and 1/32 any thoughts?

as all ways thanks in advance LJs

I adjust to the saw plate, not the teeth. I’m not a big fan of the offset fence ‘cause, if I needed to cut from the right miter slot, the fence wouldn’t be square to the blade.
Doesn’t mean I’m right, just how I do it.

question 1 Is this close enough for safe and true cuts ?

more than likely, yes.

question 2 in the manual it said a lot of wood workers keep the fence a slight bit out of square, the tail end 1/16” so to reduce kick back I am out between 1/16 and 1/32 any thoughts?

both my saws’ fences are dead on accurate. that way, they can be safely used on either side of the blade should the need arise.

#1: yes, that is safe and good enough method to align blade to miter slot

#2: I keep my fence aligned with the miter slot (and blade). that way if I have to cut on the right side of the fence I dont induce any binding.
