Here's a simple way to find out if your tablesaw miter gauge makes a square cut.Place the gauge as close as possible to the front edge of the saw table.Select a piece of plywood or other scrap sheet-stock that is about as long as the distance between the miter gauge and the sawblade — the longer the better.
The plywood should be wide enough to hold tightly to the gauge, roughly 1 ft.A nonslip surface (sandpaper) on the face of the miter gauge is helpful.One edge of the plywood needs be straight and true — mark it as the true edge.
Hold the true edge against the miter gauge and cut about 1/8 in.off one side of the plywood.Flip the board over so that the true edge is still against the miter gauge and cut 1/8 in.off the opposite side in the same manner...
