Ok, I’ve had mine for over 10 years. Works perfect. I’d ask a couple things. First, i’m going to assume the 90 is dead on, so the issue is only in the angles. Is the 45’s dead on, checked with a machinist 45? Second, when you use the detents are they in the very bottom of the groove. Second check that you don’t have some little bit of sawdust in the groove as well. Finally that vernier scale can get challenging to hit just right if its off a few degrees.

I had some similar issues, in the beginning but stuck with it, and used clamps to hold the material consistently and it helped. Check you rail. It should be tight in the slot. That will give you a slight variation. They wear and expect to change them every few years.

One final comment. Not knowing your blade, cut your first cut close to the line, and then shave the final cut off. You could be getting a slight deflection in the blade.

Mine’s monkey nuts dead on.
