.013” IS unacceptable. If the miter gauge binds, then the saw is not well made. When making your x-cut sled, set the runners to bear only on the face of each slot that is closest to the blade and ignore the other two faces that face away from the blade. Your runners don’t have to be as wide. If you have the means, measure the distance from inside faces of the slots and then the outside faces and use which ever one is the most parallel.
