HAVE OLD MAKITA 2708 TABLE SAW HOW DO I SQUARE THE BLADE
Are you wanting to square the blade to the rip fence, to the miter fence or does the blade show runout?
To square the rip fence to the blade, lay a combination square or engineer's square along the blade with the short leg against the closest end of the fence and even with the near end of the blade. Slide the square along the blade so that the short leg is even with the far end of the blade. Loosen the lock knob and move the far end of the fence until it touches the leg of the square. Tighten the lock knob. Recheck and adjust the fence until it is perfectly square to the blade.
Adjust the miter fence to the blade in a similar fashion except that the short leg of the square will lay against the miter fence. Adjust until the long leg is aligned with the blade. The instructions for these adjustments are in the owner's manual.

If you have blade runout, remove it from the saw and lay it flat. Check for warping and if warped, replace it.
Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,
