I have a ridgid compuond mitre saw that I have the same problem with. I did just what you did and I could NOT get it adjusted “perfect”. I found (Item 26 on your illustration) to NOT be flat when laying a straignt edge across the length of the surface – about .030 to .040 out of flat. This coupled with the way the compound arm comes forward during the cut (blade torq) – I finally just gave up and made a sled for my table saw thus banishing the compound mitre saw to things like cutting off studs and sawing trim for around windows. IMHO I am nor pleased with the mitre saw when it comes to small percision work.
