With the aux fence in place you have zero. The saw is set for use with the aux fence. If you want to use the fence without the aux fence slide the fence to the blade loosen the two screws for the curser and adjust to zero. Now it is setup for using the fence without the aux fence. The difference in your reading is the thickness of the aux fence.

If you were crosscutting using your miter gauge and you wanted a length of 3 inches you would put a block of 3/4” as your stop. Set the fence to 3 3/4 to get a 3” piece and not pinch once thru the blade.

Does that make sense.?
