thank you both for responding.

The fence rail is straight. After remounting the fence rail several times. I decided to try remounting it in the original position, which is offset to the right by the 6 inches. The original position brings the difference down to about 1/32 instead of 1/8 which can be attributable to my coating of paint. I wanted some fence capacity on the left of the blade but it is simply not in the cards.

I have a 36-725 with a T30 on a it and there was a learning curve to getting it squared. I found it a much easier process to get the fence rail perpendicular to the miter slot as it is the only fixed reference point on the entire saw.
I have to strip and paint the fence so I’ll see how ti aligns up when that is done.

I thought these fences were all standardized but that is not the case.
