Just to reiterate, in case it's not obvious: Don't rely on the degree marks for precision alignment. Unless you're uncommonly lucky, it will never be close enough for precise work. Put an indicator in the spindle, and sweep left/right and front/back on the table surface (or some flat surface on the table), adjusting alignment until the readings are the same, as described in the link macona gives.
