0.0035” per inch isn’t bad. I wouldn’t fuss with it beyond that. That’s assuming you did just one cut. If that’s the fifth cut from a 5 cut test, it’s excellent.

When you’re doing the 5 cut test, what you want to do is make the four cuts, then on the fifth take the strip and measure the difference between ends. You then divide that difference by 4 and then by the length to get the error per inch on each cut. There are different opinions on what constitutes a good result.
