Mike you didn’t say (or I missed it) whether you’re sled rides on the fence or in the miter slot or whether it’s adjustable
You might get lucky and think there’s no drift like Jay but the bottom line is you’ve got a thin piece of metal stretched out 2ft or better between 2 wheels that do not have any adjustments besides tracking on a mass produced machine.
I’d bet a cold beer if you set the fence dead on with the miter gauge slot you will not get a drift-free cut
