2) sounds like your .inter its are out of parallel by about .001” no big deal. The blade should have been toed in by .004, the same it was off on the other side, but the slot was already .001 off so you got .005 instead. Make sense? And that is assuming there is not .001 of error in your jig. Either way, who cares.

As for the fence, you could make sure that both faces of the fence are parallel to each other. They may not be, which could be part of the reason the measurements are off. It doesn’t matter though. Within .005 as you are you should be fine.

3 and 4 could be the same problem. If it is not flat you won’t be able to square to both sides. Is it square to the insert on both sides? Or can you shim the insert so that it is square on both sides of the blade? That can help a lot as the cut edge rides there for support.

I had a Ridgid contractor saw and I never checked for anything except to square the fence to the miter slot. I am sure the table was not flat and the blade was out of parallel. I just didn’t know to check at the time. I still made a lot of great projects. Don’t let all these measurements stop you.
