How much accuracy should I expect? I like your idea of running it through but only taking off a smidge. I think the only thing that can be out of alignment now is the blade to the miter slot so I ll check that tomorrow. Seems unlikely the miter slots would be off by .005 over 8 inches.

thats quite accurate. personally i only use a ruler that goes down to 1/32” increments which is .0313(except in setup of machines and when im working with metal. then i break out the metal workin measuring machines). im building with wood that moves through the season.
1mm over 80” is 0.039370” difference in 80”. splittin atoms here.

i have a 3” thick live edge red oak mantle over my fireplace that can have a 3/16” variation in measurements throughout the year- depending on which season i measure it.

exactly how much is the wood drifting away from the fence?
