MS1290LZ maybe? Are you sure this saw was pre-laser? It's possible that if you bought it used the arbor mounted laser was removed before you took ownership. That saw came with both the laser washer and also a normal arbor washer for use without the laser.
I decided to change calling the bathroom the "John" and renamed it the "Jim". I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.
Good news, Gang. Downloaded the manual for the model you mentioned and saw that there is supposed to be a plate in the back with model and serial #'s. Upon closer inspection I found it, but had to adjust the table angle to view it. Turns out to be MS12502. I have downloaded the manual and will attempt tomorrow to make fine adjustments to blade.
What started the whole thing was an attempt to cut a hexagonal piece of wood using the 60 degree detente. Because the blade angle was off slightly, the angular errors were cumulative, and the finished piece looked like crap.
