Rigid Compound Miter Fence Drifts


I have a 12" Rigid Compound Miter saw that I can not keep the fence straight on. It drifts about 1/16 on the left side. I have tried following Rigids alignment tips but no luck.
Anyone have any suggestions.

Glad you asked that question. I too have 12" Rigid compound miter saw that I question its accuracy. Is it your fence or is the blade moving on you? Or do you mean it just has a curvature to it. I didn't have to adjust my fence out of the box and every time I do a 90 on the blade it looks DNO. The fence is a solid piece that is affixed with two allen head bolts on the right side. I imagine that, if its moving you can check the holding power of these bolts. A washer might do the trick or even one of those washer with the little grippy grooves to help stop the movement. It seems that I probably have a deflection problem with the blade or I'm just a crappy woodworker. To be honest I was thinking of replacing my Rigid CMS for a Bosch sliding compound for hacking up wide rough boards. Well, I've been no help. JoeInAZ wrote:
