Welcome to LJs, splinterking. I own this saw and also dealt with fence alignment issues, so maybe I can help. First, a few questions. Where are you measuring the error? Fence to miter slot, front or back, both. ...? Which bolts are you tightening, the four at the front of the fence? These details might help us narrow down the problem.

It took me a little work but I got my fence dialed in and it is repeatably accurate. The R4512 is a good saw for the money, and although the fence is not the best in the world it is not a bad system. Let’s see if we can nail down the problem.
