Well, I guess the reason why I never found this problem discussed before is because I’m the only member of this forum who ever experienced it. Okay, so I either live with it or save my money for a better table saw. Maybe a Ridgid R4512 is in my future.

Most rip fences for larger saws have 2 adjustments screws that adjust the tilt. Looking at the manual, I don’t see any sort of adjustments for this saw. It may be possible to use some UHMW tape to shim one side of the fence guide? If the fence is bent or something and there is no obvious way to fix it, you can buy a new fence on Amazon for $71 (could be cheaper elsewhere). Another option would be attach a sacrificial face to the fence that you shim so that it is perpendicular to the table. You could also make one that fits over the fence so that it rests on the table top. You will need a way to tighten it to the fence so it doesn’t slide. A face addition will make your scale not correct but you can either buy and apply a new scale (Amazon Starrett adhesive scale tape) or simply use a ruler for better accuracy.
