Does anyone here have the MicroLux tablesaw from MicroMark? Have you noticed an inability to rip hobby lumber accurately due to blade flex? Also, is there an optional blade, possibly thicker that won't flex under load?

If the blade is flexing then the problem is either the blade is too thin for the material, or there is something out of alignment causing the blade to flex.

Which blade are you using and what material, and thickness, are you cutting?

Are you using the fence to guide the material? Is the fence in true alignment with the blade? Place a steel ruler between the blade and fence, then slide the fence toward the blade to check the alignment.

Take a look at the blades on this page. They show 168 tooth and 340 tooth blades with various kerf sizes from .020" to .045":

I have this blade http://www.micromark.com/80-Tooth-Saw-Blade-3-1and4-Inch-Dia-10mm-Hole,7501.html and I was trying to cut 1/4" hobby plywood. I have the older Microlux table saw (not the digital) so the fence isn't anywhere near as nice as the digital. I see by your link that they have a carbide tipped blade. That may just be the ticket.
