I have a DW744 benchtop saw. Before the flames begin, I am quite happy
with it and don't have the footprint for a contractor's saw. That being
The mitre slots on it seem to have tapers at the front and back that I
can't seem to figure out. Crude ascii art:
I cannot figure out any way for a mitre bar or runner to not have slop.
If it fits in the front opening, as soon as it is past the opening
there is slop. if it fits tightly in the center of the runner, it has
too much resistance at the front or back opening.
Am I missing something, or should I follow my impulse and break out a
file and strighten those tapers out? If so, what is the best way to go
about this to reduce the chance of over-correcting?
Since this is a google groups posting, I'm sure I have been filtered
out. If not, thanks in advance.
