Five Cuts

I do not remember where I was shown this, but it sure works to check if your SCMS is cutting square of not.

You do five cuts, and by the time you have finished the fifth cut, if your saw in not square,
you will see the problem multiplied by 4.

I started with a piece of plywood about 10" square. I numbered the sides just so it would be easier to keep track

I put the #1 side against the fence, and cut on the #2 side

Turn it and cut again (turn counter clock wise)

and again

and again

The fifth and final cut

I checked it with my machinist square, and it was dead on.

This old Hitachi CB8F is sure a good saw.
