Ryan, I have the Craftsman 21833 which internally seems to be identical to the 4512. I have had it about 2-1/2 years now and very happy with it.

You mention that you were trying to move the back of the blade 1/16 inch but were unable to do so. Something I found out early on after getting my saw is that the 90 and 45 degree angle stops must be backed off to get the full amount of travel available to set the blade to slot alignment. I found that with these stops at the factory settings, I could just barely move the back of the trunion in the direction it needed to go. Once I loosened off the stops, I could easily move the trunion much farther than was needed to get the alignment set where it needed to be.

If this sounds like the problem you were having, you might want to give the 4512 another try.
