support. When clamping the saw to any work surface, clamp
only on the clamping bosses where the mounting screw
holes are located. Clamping at any other point will interfere
with the proper operation of the saw.

shipping and handling or any other reason is required, follow
the steps below to adjust your saw:
mitre scale adjustment. place a square against the saw's
fence and blade, as shown in Fig. D. (Do not touch the
tips of the blade teeth with the square. To do so will
cause an inaccurate measurement.) Loosen the mitre
clamp handle (4) as shown in Fig. E and swing the mitre
arm until the mitre latch (5) locks it at the 0 mitre position.
Do not tighten the clamp handle. If the saw blade is not
exactly perpendicular to the fence, loosen the two screws
that hold the handle to the base (shown in Fig. 6) and
move the arm of the saw left or right until the blade is
perpendicular to the fence, as measured with the square.
Retighten the two screws. Pay no attention to the reading
of the mitre pointer at this point.
