I'm so gald to have found this site! I am planning on you guys to solve all the problems in my shop! thanks in advance.

My miter saw is cutting slight, but anger-inducing arcs, especially in harder woods. It cuts more from the middle of the wood than it does from the edges (as viewed from above). Happens even if I go slow. Do I just need a new blade?

mucho thanko!

If it is the blade that came with the saw then YES replace it. (I happen to have a few thoughts about what brand of blade to use.) :gar-Bi

With the saw unplugged grab the blade with 2 hands and see if you can feel it move as you push it in and out inline with the motor. If there is some play in and out you might have bearing problems.

Sorry to hear you are have all these tool problems, good luck.
