Hi Folks,

I was able to finally get it aligned.

The issue was the 2 big screws, when you tighten them (especially) the front screw, the knife moves.
I could hold the knife in place with my hand.

To fix, I cut a 2×4 and put it between the knife and the fence.

I used for several hours on Saturday, and the R4512 was back to cutting boards like they were butter. Then
I started some taper cuts, a board bound between my taper jig and the blade, which kicked the knife out of alignment.

I need to do some reading about taper cuts.
