Hey thanks for your reply nwbusa and the welcome. Since you have the 4512 and got it working it gives me some hope! I like the saw in general esp. compare to the job site saw I was using before.

I am referencing off the miter slot, the A-Line-It thing fits in the slot and then you zero it out and move it from front to back along the miter slot. I’ve tried it at various distances from the miter slot. The fence is moving away from the miter slot at the back.

I’ve been loosing and tightening the four bolts by the fence handle to make my adjustments. I’ve been leaving the closest bolt to me a little snug to keep it from moving to much allowing my to make a more accurate adjustment(in theory). The last time adjusted it, once I got it in place I tried using a clamp to hold everything in place.

Also I started measuring it again because I notice the wood appeared to drift away from it at the back. Although I was cutting short piece the see to come out accurately, I just thought the drift was weird so I checked it.
