Default New UEG marks way off

So, I assembled my UEG yesterday. Feels like a nice solid unit, but I noticed the measurements were slightly off.



Am I missing something here?

It's zeroed nearly an inch beyond the fence, which makes the measurements on the side a bit hard to use.

The marks do not have anything directly to do with the fence. The marks are to be used in conjunction with the Smart Base and the reference marks on it (the small triangles). Once the reference marks are lined up then it corresponds to the distance between the fence and the blade.

I never realized that the triangles were supposed to indicate cut width, mine are way off, so far off I never realized that is what they're there for. On mine there is another little pointer that is close, it's sort of under one of the washers on the clamp wingnuts. Like I said it's close but the pointer is so wide it's of little use. Just checked triangles miss cut width by over an inch.
Of course any accuracy on the fixed marks on the Base rely on the saw being mounted in the exact correct position on the Base.

Default make your own zero.

Hi guys.
Something is wrong here. The printing is done be another vender.
we are looking into this but the best way is to make your own mark
after you install the saw and place the blade against the fence.

An adjustable ruler is another answer until we receive the long awaiting
brackets. The new brackets will eliminate any and all issues.
We will offer them as an upgrade at very low prices.

Even Free with any order to avoid the shipping cost.
We had QC issues with the first production run of 2000? units.
And a big mistake on shipping with the second production run...

While we tried to renew our supply line the trade wars started
and is taking time to find EZ again.
Please, give us a brake ( Or break?)

Thanks Joe! So now it looks like it's actually me who is way off. I hadn't even thought about the marks on the base. It looks like things will roughly line up just as you said. However, looking at the marks from the left arm to the right arm there is 1/16th difference. It's hard to explain, but I can see this even without the base. If I look directly above the fence I can see the first tick on the left arm lines up with the edge of the slot, but the tick marks on the right arm are slightly beyond the edge.

Weird. Don't know if this helps, but I think I bought it about a year ago at a local Rockler. Here's an image of the other end of the arm.

Here is a pic of my UEG with the blade all the way against the fence. Triangles mean nothing.

Make your own indexing mark.
