So at least we know the "run out" in my saw is not common to them all. What you are describing sounds like less than 1/32" in 5" of travel. Mine is more on the order of 1/8" in 4 inches of travel. I just don't think this is a "blade" or "sharpness" issue - particularly when the run out is visible with no workpiece even in the machine.

I just got through emailing H.F. Customer Service to describe the problem. We'll see if they have a solution.

BTW, thanks for the heads up regarding constant lubrication of the blade. Nothing at all in the manual about doing that. I'll have to rig up some sort of drip system.
