you want to be 100% perfect and lose some versatility?
secure the components with screws and make the top semi-adjustable.

Another trick is the bracing in the legs and top.
like any tool if the floor is not level you can have issues.
About the rest and the square moving...
I tried it until I bend the aluminum without been able to move the square out of place. Here I can use an indicator to show if and when the square has move.

Not using ez-one, but still an aluminum t-track style frame

anyway, i find it's easier to just realign the track/bridge and leave the fence alone.

instead of those bolts that come with the bridge (requiring a socket or wrench to adjust) i use knobs. put a large triangle between the bridge and fence and loosen/tighten the knobs. Really only need to adjust one side.

admittedly, it is easy for me only because i have the bridge set at the lowest level. If you have the bridge raised for whatever reason, once you loosen the knobs it's going to fall down.

I also don't see how you could place a large triangle on the ez-one, with it being all open. I really dislike open tops.

*Disclaimer: I know what i'm talking about 50% of the time, every time...

You just move the the EZ-ONE's non-fence sliding rail(s) to support the square and/or material being cut, as needed.

If you don't want the EZ-ONE's open top, you can place 3/4" thick panels between the rails to support the square. Make sure the panels are 3/4" thick - using MDF or similar sheet material rather than thinner plywood. Those who like/want bench dog holes can drill those into the panels ... though this isn't really needed because EZSMART stops and clamps can be fastened anywhere along the rails - or even along the sides rails, if needed.
