    Lisa, what exactly were your problems? I notice the faces arenít flat so I shimmed with
    painters tape under neath no make it flat within .003. I also had to shim slightly to get the faces square to the table.

    Instead of tilting blade for angles, why not leave blade at 90, and BUILD a couple of angled sleds to hold work pieces. Once your friends find out that you built a flag case, you will be asked to do more, which will be easy as you already have jigs to make cuts.

    This is a great idea Bruce and something Iíve seen done before. I would likely build one for 67.5 and 45. I will probably do this when I have more time. I need to get this flag case done very soon.

    I have fixed the problem today. This afternoon I ďre-tunedĒ the saw again with nothing more than a combi square and a lucky tooth on the blade. I was very meticulous and got it just right. Not much work needed to be done from where it was. Next I carefully aligned the fence to the miter slot. Before trying this cut again with the jig I left the saw at 45 and made some cuts with the miter gauge and the piece flat on the table and the cuts were perfect, so I knew the setup was right on. Then I set up to make the 67.5 cut. The only thing different I did was to clamp the piece to the jig with two clamps as Steve suggested. I clamped rather tight as I thought this really could be the problem. The cut was right on.

    So the good news is that I fixed the problem, the bad news is that Iím not sure exactly what the problem was. Could have been a combination of a few things. So thanks everyone for your suggestions! Hopefully this can help others in the future that are having the same problem.
