I was having trouble in the wood shop with the blades flexing. they make a stabilizer for that problem that cured it ,all they are ,are giant washers that sandwich the blade,might work for your metal saw as well....
As for that crappy POS fence ,I got tired of setting up and double checking everything every time I changed an angle so I put permanent marks in the base that I lined the fence up with ,to speed things up. the problem with the abrasive blade is as it wears down you have to move the fence so you need many lines for the same angle.That shouldnt be a problem with the cold saw..I used my cut off wheel to cut the lines showing the angles some white paint in the groove makes it even easier for us half blind guys that never seem to have their glasses handy.
