I have the 12 inch version of that saw and I have observed the same thing, though not as much as you are seeing. It isn’t really possible to get a tool of this design to cut as accurately as a table saw sled. I attribute the problem to blade vibration. The further from the fence you move the carriage, the more the blade vibrates from side to side. In effect, the saw kerf gets wider. There is no way to adjust that out. For my purposes, that doesn’t matter that much. I think the situation could be improved by using a negative hook angle blade made for a SCMS.
