    What is the best way to set the blade at a true ninety
    degrees to table.

    I use a small square (about 4' on a side).

      I also agree that is the way I do it. Use a small machinist square and check both sides of the blade and you can't go wrong. JTTHECLOCKMAN

        If you don't have a little square, take a piece of scrap at least 3/4' thick and cut about 1/16' into the wood. You can do two things. Turn it over and try if it fits in the kerf or you can try if it fits in the back of the blade, without turning it over.

              I'll add in some food for thought too. I was unsure if I would enjoy this hobby (addiction) so I started with the Porter Cable from Lowes. I think it is a good entry level saw, 5 months later I found an Excaliber on Craigs List and have been happy ever since.

              Food for thought, When I first started scrolling my thinking was "all I want to do is this and I will never do that as it doesn't interest me". I didn't know I would be working with SSWWC or get sucked into creating Intarsia or doing large intricate fretwork, like Charles Hand designs....

              Thank you all for giving me a little more to consider. I thought I had covered everything in my mind until others chimed in!
              At least at this point in life, I'm not under a time constraint.

              Just read an article from Indianapolis where small businesses are reporting great sales.
              Glad you made out well and Bruce got to be salesman for a while.
