Blade to Miter Slot

Blade to miter slot Adjustment

The miter slot, grooved right into the table, is the only thing on a table saw that is not adjustable.

Since we cannot change this slot, we should line up the whole rest of the saw to this one important, but fixed part of this machine.  Many woodworkers were never aware that the entire motor housing is designed for adjustment to the miter slot -- sometimes with something as crude as an undersized bolt in an oversized hole.
