There are a few reasons why your rip cuts might be drifting on your table saw. One of the most common reasons is because the blade is not parallel to the fence. This can cause the cut to drift to one side or the other.
If the blade is not perpendicular to the fence, it can also cause the cut to drift. Another common reason for drift is when the fence isn’t square to the blade. This can cause the cut to drift in one direction or another.
Finally, if the piece you’re cutting is not straight, it will cause the cut to drift as well. There are a few things you can do to help prevent your rip cuts from drifting. First, make sure that your blade is parallel to the fence and perpendicular to the table. Second, make sure that the fence is square to the blade.
Make sure that the piece you’re cutting is straight. If you follow these tips, your rip cuts will be much more accurate.
