I do agree with using a sled, but if you want to set up your fence like you asked, here are the pictures I promised. I start by measuring the distance from the fence to the miter slot in the center. You need it as close as possible to being set right with the bit

Then measure each end and set the fence as straight as you can.

Clamp a piece like this to the miter gage and set it against the fence in the middle by the bit

Then move side to side in the slot. When it’s right, it will barely touch at every point. Adjust the fence as needed. This should just takes a few minitues. The biggest issue will be having the fence right to to bit. You may have to tweak it.

Hope this helps you
