I swear, last night in a coffee shop I told a group of guys how happy I was with my Ridgid 12" mitre saw. This morning, something has gone wrong.
It still cuts an almost-true - it was never perfect - straight cut (zero vertical, zero horizontal). However when I flop it over to 45 degrees vertical on either side, it's suddenly *WAY* off on the horizontal axis, almost 1/8" out of true on a 5 1/2" board!
I feel like an idiot, but I don't know what's gone wrong. The saw is set up in my home, nobody has even touched it since I used it yesterday, and I don't see where on the saw I could adjust it back into true.
Is this really a mystical problem resulting from my boasting to my friends, or is there something more practical that I can look at?
Thanks in advance for any ideas.
