Thanks LS. I’ll try clamping a board down with a shim.
The frustrating bit was when I loosened the screws off, and clamped it down, my measurements were spot-on. I tightened things up again, but when I released the clamp it was out.

The shim method may work. I’m wondering too if a small shim/bit of cardboard may help if I stick it in the assembly where the fence attaches to the slide on the front of the saw. Not sure if you have the same saw, but the 4 allen heads attach to the sliding bit – maybe a shim in there, top left would insure it stays put….I guess you have to spend 1K or more to get a saw that’s dialed in perfectly.
