It looks like you have a solution.

I have the same saw. I was long tempted by that Incra, but actually, the fence on my Rigid saw was working just fine. I was mainly tempted by the precise placement possible with the Incra. I ended up putting on a DRO instead, which gives me the precision at much lower cost. It’s been a long time since I fiddled with it, but I think I have a few shims between the back rail and the saw top, but squareness has not be notably a problem with mine.

I don’t mind the open extensions. On the left side, it allows me to clamp shop-built featherboards wherever I like. I have at times put loose pieces of 1/4” MDF into the recesses to keep small parts from falling through.

That Incra fence is a mighty fine thing though. I’m sure you’ll be happy with it.
