it's the tilting mechanism's geometry
It won't effect the saw's performance, it's just the way the mechanism works ... apparently. Square to the table is square to the table even if it's over to the right by a 1/32" or so, it won't matter.
I think you would find they are all that way and that's just how they work. To "compensate" you should probably measure to the fence if you raise and lower the blade before making a cut. I would be interested in the actual dimension of the offset, maybe with a feeler gauge? And does it move the square over additionally each time or is it a one time occurrence?
The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)
