i just installed a wixie on my DW735:

I planned a board to 3/4” then loosened the side set screw and adjusted the wixey to 3/4”. I’m fairly confident that i got it within 1/128” (0.0078125”). I’m not sure my low-end caliper is much more accurate than that. If need anything finer than that i’ll go to the hand planes.

Based on the picture it looks like you’re out a 1/32” (0.03125”)?
