Thanks for the photo. That removes all doubt about what is happening.

So: – it is cutting at 90 on the 90. – when you turn it to 45 in one direction, you cut down into the wood at 90 degrees, but at an angle, as if the bevel is moved.

Now comes the question, do both 45’s give the same cut, or does it get progressively worse, get better, go in the opposite direction (wider at the bottom than at the top instead of at the bottom)?

And, yes, if you set the bevel, it should be consistent all the way left and right.
