Dave, On the issue of angles I found that I was never careful enough in setting my equipment accurate enough. Then I got a Wixey Digital Angle Gauge, and a 8’’ Wixey™ Digital Protractor from Rockler. Changed the entire scene regarding angles. You might consider these two devices if you are having trouble with angles. Also, I am a retired engineer which has aided me in determining what the angles are required to be in the first place. Send me a note if I can be of help on determining an angle.
