Hey dub, Wow! Look at the improvement in the fit up. I was having a similar problem and when patron was here for a visit, he checked out my saw and miter gauge. He found the pivot screw had loosened on my EB3 miter gauge and even though I had just tuned up the old Ridgid saw, it was way out of tune (like me). I installed the PALS and readjusted the trunnion and we were able to cut some good usable pieces.
Your problem looks to be the same as mine. When you get everything in sync, the pieces fall together.

Maybe a miter sled for your TS in a solution. Look at the ones on Hot Projects. You have to be able to repeat the cuts without loosing your angles.The problem is not you. You have the concept down pat.
