Once that is done, move the jig's fence to line up with the front of the blade and place a large draftsman's square against the saw blade, not touching the teeth. Slide the jig forward a bit and align the jig's fence with the edge of the sqare. Once you have a perfect 90 degree alignment, lock down the fence and loosen the transparent plastic indicator on the jig and align the indicator line with the zero mark.
This process will assure that any angle you cut will be as near perfect as possible. Put a flat shelf near your table saw with a couple of pieces of MDF on it to give the miter bar space while the MDF supports the jig's table. This will help keep it flat over the years. It will also keep it handy because once you learn how accurate this gadget is, you'll be using it frequently. You can also add a sacrificial board behind the work piece to stop tear out.
Read the instructions thoroughly before you cut it to size on your saw. And consider also buying the drop off sled as well. It really helps make a clean cut.
