Otherwise you could try this …

1. Place the base board on your table with clamping block against the side edge of the table, as it should be, but pulled back towards you (i.e. the sliding arm is between you and the blade.
2. Push the sliding arm out past the position of the balde so that the pin is in line with the blade.
3. Push the base board forward until the sliding arm just touches the blade.
4. Measure the distance from the centre of the pin to the front of the balde.
5. Retract the sliding arm.
6. Slide the base forward by the distance that you have just measured from the centre of the pin to the bade
7. Clamp the base.
8. Mark a line under the base along the front and back of the table.
9. Install a stop under the base at both the back and front of the table such that the jig is automatically correctly positioned every time you use it.

If you try this and it works, please let us all know.
