If you’re referring to the part of the manual that discusses bevel stop, I’d point out that the bevel is perfect at 90°. The problem is at 45° left. I can’t do a meaningful test at 45° right because the arm limits the insertion of workpieces more than 1” or so high.

If you’re asking what would happen if I adjusted the bevel when the saw is at 45°, I don’t think anything good would come from that. First off, it’d probably screw up the 90° cuts. Second, to the best of my ability to measure, the blade is nowhere near as far off as the cut indicates. Something is happening during the raising and lowering of the blade.

Here’s another picture. I sent this to Bosch today; we’ll see what they say.
