Question about Dewalt DW744S 10" Portable Table Saw with Stand
Ok yep your blade is out of alignment with the fence. It is closer to the fence at the rear than the front. You need to make the modification or adjustment to your fence, if it allows that, and then worry about the miter slots later (which should be adjusted miter slot to blade, not miter slot to fence). You might be able to adjust the miter slot to blade by moving the actual table and then securing witht he table mount bolts. Check your manual for how to align the fence.
You do want to fix that though as it can be potentially dangerous and result in kickback of the workpiece which is a rather SCARY thing, and very dangerous.

Often the rack & pinion adjustment system will skip a tooth, usually in the front. This happens to me all the time. Before you adjust the hex bolts at the back of the saw, try flexing the adjusting knob down and manually moving the front of the fence left or right, whichever way it needs to go to be straight. Let up on the adjusting knob and see if it reseats itself back in the right spot. If you look at how the gear on the knob meshes into the toothed rack, it should be clear what I mean.Not sure if there's a way to tighten the play on the knob to keep this from happening, but it becomes more of an issue the longer you use the saw.
