I cut some 45 degree mitres in 1/4" softwood and got good results, then I tried to do the same in 3/4" stock and the bottom of the cut was square but as the cut got deeper it started to drift out of square and by the time it cut through the top of the mitre was 1/16" out of square. The set up was with the fence square and the blade tilted to 45 degrees, the stock was face down with the 2" face on the table 3/4" was the depth of cut and was clamped firmly both sides.
When I assembled the saw I carefully checked every stage, gears work smoothly on the keel, saw spine had a lot of lateral movement with .024 washers fitted, so I removed the washers and tried it and it was too tight then I tried some .008 washers it moved up and down but felt a little tight so then I tried .016 washers and this gave me very smooth winding up and down and took out all of the slop in the saw spine.
I have carefully squared the blade to the table using a steel rule, tried it on both tables and it looks to be very square, I have also done this with the blade tilted to 45 degrees and at table level it looks very good for square.
Both trunions are flush with the end plates with no slop, I can get a perfect square cut with the stock face down but another problem when I cut with the stock up on its edge it cuts square for most of the way but the last 3/16" curves away at the top.
