Why am I getting a "wandering" cut cross grain in dressed 4/4 hard maple?
The saw is a sharp 10 inch 60T ATB carbide (I don't remember the brand and

blade is parallel to the slot to within about .001" fore and aft on the
exposed blade (I suspect that the slot isn't really cut to quite this

Thanks in advance for any ideas.
