I respectfully disagree with the toe-out suggestion. :) This presents a problem when the fence is used on the opposite side of the blade (usually for beveled cuts). I don’t do this often, but I did it tonight. Miter slot, blade, and fence all should be dead parallel. If you are getting skiff marks from the rear of the blade, then the cause of that problem can be determined and fixed.

Edit: I’d add that a dial indicator(DI) would be a good compliment to your calipers. GarageWoodWorks has an explanitory video on how to use the DI.
