Question about Craftsman 10" Table Saw
First, check to make sure the blade itself is a flat plane, by measuring the distance from a fixed point to various teeth as the blade rotates. (Usually a magnetic base dial caliper is used to do this.)
Once you know the blade is flat and true, you can use it to set up the saw...
This is a tricky process and requires a bit of finesse. You need to just loosen the bolts that hold the table top to the workings of the saw beneath, and shift the saw relative to the miter slot so the blade is perfectly parallel. You'll probably have to crank it over to 45% to get to the bolts, then crank it back to check the adjustment, so make sure it changes angles easily first, by squirting some oil in there.
When it get it adjusted correctly, tighten the bolts, and check the working of the raise/lower and angle adjustments. You will probably have to reset the stops as well.
I don't see a manual for your saw here, but you might have a look at the other manuals that are there. There may be a saw close enough to yours for the manual to be of some use. See this one, for an example of typical instructions related to your adjustment. (You click on the publication to open it.)
Good luck. It's a bit of work, but worth it. It will make the miter slot functional, and make adjusting the fence a whole lot more accurate.
