Some have a modicum of adjustment, but even a Kapex if you lock it down, and shake the handle, you will get movement. If you hired a robot to make all of your cuts exactly the same you would maybe get repeatability.

On the rest, and with a human being pulling it down you will get a range. A lot of people using them, don’t want to hear that, but your error is typical.

Fine tools to use for close rough cuts. For fine finish work if thats your tool, cut wide and use a block plane or larger to true and get to final width. A well made sled for a TS is much more likely to get you closer to dead nutz on finish work.
