I have a Sears table saw that i purchased used from a relative (yeah, I know...). I will be building cabinets for my kitchen remodel. I purchased a new saw blade and did a few experimental cuts last night and found that the wood had burn marks on it. I tried cutting at different rates and still had the marks. I then measured to make sure the blade was perpendicular (which it was) then measured front and back of blade against the fence... it measured about 1/16" off.
Is this enough to cause the problem? And if so, is there an adjustment to correct this? Or am I doing something else wrong. I'm not a new remodeler, but I am a beginner with working with a table saw.
