I've had several saws over the years, and I never use the stops for the 90 and 45.

It is too sensitive to how hard I crank the wheel changing the setting. Maybe a higher end saw (my best one was a 70's Rockwell) would work better.

Just curious if I'm the only one that moves the stops way out and ignores them. I use my digital gauge to set my blade every time.

I have an '88 Rockwell Delta Unisaw, and both stops are dead nuts on. I never check my angles unless I'm between 45° and 90°…. Seems like it's all in the proper set up…......... Jerry (in Tucson)

I spent 15 minutes calibrating my 90° stop to get it "perfect". After the first non-90 set of cuts, I went back to 90 and realized that some sawdust was interfering. Not by much but enough to bug me. So I backed off the stop and now just use an engineer's square.
