I've read all the advice regarding toe-in and I am not drinking the koolaid. My tablesaws don't have toe-in and neither do my portable saws. I clamp my rail to a nice scrap and plunge full depth. I measure, with electronic calipers the front and back distance to the aluminum edge of my rail and adjust until both ends are exact. I've done this with all my saws mostly to make them all cut the same distance from the rail. I do not use my splinter strip to place my cuts, all my saws cut 3mm from the aluminum rail and that is how I place my material for precision. Woodpeckers Paolini rules are outstanding for this type of placement. P.S. I use a 55, 75, HKC, and my original Makita.
