Yes it is edge jointed. The fence isn’t towards the blade at the end. It’s about 0.003” away from the blade. I can’t really get it perfectly parallel. Depending on what miter slot I reference off of it’s about 0.003” off compared to the other one. Also since it’s extruded aluminum, the fence dips a little in the very center by about 0.003”. The saw is a G0771Z. I don’t have any problems with burn marks or kickback. Although maybe the wood feels like it could go through a little smoother/faster, it is only 1.5HP I think. The main problem is it not ripping equal thickness across the length. I actually thought it was the riving knife forever because it definitely wasn’t aligned. I ended up shimming the blade outwards using dado shims, because it was the only way to have enough play in the riving knife to get it centered behind the blade. But I ended up testing with it removed and still had the issue.
