So I have been having issues getting good cuts on my bosch 4100, mainly when using a miter guage or sled and I finally figured out why, my table is crowned so the miter guage and sleds will change angle to the blade as it goes across the table. For the most part I didnt notice it as most of my projects were small boxes. Its now too late to ret...
