Looks like it should work.
And, of course, I did it different. Hehehe
With my saw the table was just a tad off. Easy fix. I did use a square to line the blade up with the fence after I set the table where I wanted it, wasn't worried about it being 100%, just very close, because then I used JB Weld to make sure the table didn't move - was only interested in straight cuts. Then I tossed the saw fence. Made a new fence with a chunk of 2X4, and plywood to raise the top of the table. This gave me a very straight cut when I adjusted my 2X4 fence, and raising the table top gave me a wider cut. It wound up making a cut almost 8", and if I'd raised it a bit more would have been able to make cuts almost 10" wide. Sadly, later on the motor started smoking badly. Next time got a slider, big mistake, my wood fence wouldn't fit it, didn't like it anyway, and later sold it. So, now need to get the initiative to make a new fence, this time a bit higher.
