once the incra gets to you try this:

adjust the incra’s miter bar to eliminate as much slop as possible. square the miter gauge to the blade. adjust table until .000” @ front of blade is .000” with the same blade tooth rotated to the rear of the throat plate. a $10 dial gauge form harbor freight and a bolt with a couple of nuts are all that’s needed in conjunction with your incra 1000 (which is the same miter gauge i use occasionally). redirect the money that would be wasted on the align-it to useful accessories, like good blades. just my $.02.

BTW, that first pic is the front of the thoat plate. here’s the same blade tooth rotated to the rear of the throat plate (on a 40YO emerson electric built c-man contractor saw with the dreaded table mounted trunions):

perfect alignment is really pretty simple and can be accomplished without additional expense.

-- there's a solution to every just have to be willing to find it.
