Mk101 adjustment

My MK101 is not cutting properly. The cut is off almost 1/16 of an inch from the top of the tile to the bottom. I've replaced the self lube bearings in the table that ride on the bar. I also tried all the adjustments that MK show on their website. I'm told by MK that I need a new blade. It's a Ridgid blade from Home Depot that was used only a few times. Any advice would be greatly appreciated to resolve this problem. Which blade should I purchase from MK? Thanks.

A high quality blade will go a LONG way in helping to solve your problem. I recently got a 10" Diamax Cyclone on a recommendation from another pro in my area. It cuts straight, chip free, and fast for about 60ish where I found it online. The TC3 also mentioned is a great blade as well.
