How to most easily square a miter saw?
January 18, 2013 11:35 AM Subscribe
I've got this Dewalt miter saw
, and it seems to be slightly out of square -- neither the 0º miter or bevel is exactly square, at least with the door casing I've been cutting.
Does anyone have any tips (or links to good resources) on how to square up this sort of saw?
For what it's worth, I think I've figured out how to adjust the indicators & scale on the saw, so I'm not looking for advice on how to adjust this particular saw. Instead, I need help figuring out how to determine which direction -- and to what degree -- I need to move the scale to square it up. Advice on how to cut and match a board to test the square is just the sort of help I need.
