I guess I wasn t thinking it was a depth issue. The depth appears really close to me. But the side to side space doesn t look like it would be fixed by changing the depth. I ll play around with it though.

Assuming your guide bearing is correct, I agree that depth is probably the culprit. Because you are cutting both pins and tails simultaneously, the depth will always appear to be close if not right on. However, because the sides are tapered, you will find as you make adjustments the sides will come closer together if your adjustments are in the correct direction. Read your instructions carefully.
