Oldest trick in the book.
Raise blade full amount, then place a piece of 6" vertical stock
oagainst miter gage and make a test cut about an inch from the end using
the left slot for the gage.

cut thru the same slot you just cut.
If the cut edges of the slot are parallel, the blade is vertical.
If not, adjust blade as required and repeat test.
I have about as much need for a saw blade gage as a boar hog with a set
