I recently purchased an older (probably about 12-15 yrs) Craftsman table saw. I can't find a Model # anywhere on the exterior of the saw. Does anyone know where to look to find the model #. I've tried on-line, with no success, and I can't find any 'Sears' repair shop number to call; even my nearest Sear store is of no help.

The saw is a direct drive, with the miter & height adjustment done from the same wheel. [To do miter adjustments, you move a leaver behind the adjustment wheel up (counter clockwise), then wind the wheel, to do blade height adjustments you move the lever down (clockwise) and wind the wheel.] This model also has the sliding plate rather than a slotted miter gauge track.

My goal is to learn how to make adjustments to the saw blade so that I get true 90 degree cuts. Apparently the blade isn't 100% parallel. If standing if front of the blade (looking at the edge of the blade), the backside of the blade is slightly more to the left than the front. I believe the blade is at a right angle to the table top, just skewed slightly (I guess that would be the X axis). In the manuals I've found on a Craftsman Table Saw (non of which matched my saw) there appears to be adjustment screws that are intended to 'zero' the saw blade. Of course, none of those are present on my specific saw.

Can anyone offer suggestions?

Thanks in advance,
