Good morning.
I have a big unresolved problem in my cs ts 75 table saw.

I made a lot of setup but, at the end, I am not able to square panel (big or small) from the sliding table and miter gauge.

The miter gauge is well tuning when It is linked to the fixed table at 90 degrees or zero degrees but when I use the same setup of the miter gauge in the sliding table I am not in the condition to have a square part.

I tried to change the inclination of the rail, setup of the sliding table with the screws but the situation is unstable and always the same problem:no perpendicular faces.

Anyone has a suggestion or a video tutorial to follow for step by step setup?

Regards. [eek] [eek] [eek]

I'm not exactly sure what your doing. Wrong or how you set up your saw or how you did the initial squaring of the fence on the sliding table to the blade.

Have you don't the 5 cut method to try to square up the fence and the blade? You can do a search here and find how to use that method

I have problem with the sliding fence.
I am not able to perform a 90 degrees cut when I use sliding table and miter fence together.

Sounds like the TS insert is not perpendicular to the slider. Do you have a square that you can check against the protractor and fence on the sliding table?  Sometimes, mine is 1deg off or so and I will have to pull the detent pin up, turn it 180deg and then adjust and lock the fence.

If that doesn't work, then the slider isn't attached correctly or the inset is not in properly. I have never had those issues, but try the above items to get to a five cut test.

Take a few pics if you can and also let me know how far from 90deg it is.

Cheers. Bryan.
