I have checked the fence using my woodpecker square and it runs true as far as I can tell. I am using a Dewalt DWE7491RS with a Frued dado stack since I am working out of my garage and need it to take up less space and be portable.

I think the main problem might have been where I was standing trying to push this through. Maybe I was too far back and the pivot was just jacked up like what was mentioned above. I didn’t have the on a table or somethign secure as i was pushing it though and it probably compounded my issues. I like the idea of trying to cut it and if it doesn’t work move the board over and try again and then cutting my final dimensions after I get a cut that I like.

I’m thinking with my limited skills the best course of action would be to set up a straight MDF fence clamped on top and run a router the length of the board to get the proper cut.

thanks everyone for the thoughts on the matter.
