I haven’t done it in quite some time but
as I recall you cut a wider piece off for
the 5th cut and the amount of taper is
4-times the amount your sled is out of
square. A 1/64” out-of square might be
hard to spot, but x4 it becomes 1/16”.

You came up with something a bit less
than a tenth of an inch so I think you’d
want to move the fence (or try paper
shims to figure out how much) about
a quarter of that or .178/4

Ng’s method is probably more scientific
than mine. Getting any saw to cut
cabinet panels dead-square is something
of a hassle I’ve found. In most work it
doesn’t matter but I’ve fussed with frameless
cabinetry and in that it’s really important.
