MAINTENANCE

CAUTION:
• Always be sure that the tool is switched off and
unplugged before attempting to perform inspection or
maintenance.
WARNING:
• Always be sure that the blade is sharp and clean for the
best and safest performance.
Adjusting the cutting angle
This tool is carefully adjusted and aligned at the factory,
but rough handling may have affected the alignment. If
your tool is not aligned properly, perform the following:
1.
Miter angle
Push the carriage toward the guide fence and tighten two
clamp screws to secure the carriage.
Loosen the grip which secures the turn base. Turn the
turn base so that the pointer points to 0° on the miter
scale. Then turn the turn base slightly clockwise and
counterclockwise to seat the turn base in the 0° miter
notch. (Leave as it is if the pointer does not point to 0°.)
Loosen the hex bolts securing the guide fence using the
socket wrench. (Fig. 45)
Lower the handle fully and lock it in the lowered position
by pushing in the stopper pin. Square the side of the
blade with the face of the guide fence using a triangular
rule, try-square, etc. Then securely tighten the hex bolts
on the guide fence in the order from the right side.
(Fig. 46)
Make sure that the pointer points to 0° on the miter scale.
If the pointer does not point to 0°, loosen the screw which
secures the pointer and adjust the pointer so that it will
point to 0°. (Fig. 47)
2.
Bevel angle
1.
0° bevel angle
Push the carriage toward the guide fence and
tighten two clamp screws to secure the carriage.
Lower the handle fully and lock it in the lowered posi-
tion by pushing in the stopper pin. Loosen the lever
at the rear of the tool.
Turn the 0° bevel angle adjusting bolt (lower bolt) on
the right side of the arm two or three revolutions
counterclockwise to tilt the blade to the right.
(Fig. 48)
Carefully square the side of the blade with the top
surface of the turn base using the triangular rule, try-
square, etc. by turning the 0° bevel angle adjusting
bolt clockwise. Then tighten the lever securely.
(Fig. 49)
Make sure that the pointer on the arm point to 0° on
the bevel scale on the arm holder. If it does not point
to 0°, loosen the screw which secures the pointer
and adjust the pointer so that it will point to 0°.
(Fig. 50)
2.
45° bevel angle
Adjust the 45° bevel angle only after performing 0°
bevel angle adjustment. To adjust left 45° bevel
angle, loosen the lever and tilt the blade to the left
fully. Make sure that the pointer on the arm points to
45° on the bevel scale on the arm holder. If the
pointer does not point to 45°, turn the 45° bevel
angle adjusting bolt (upper bolt) on the right side of
the arm until the pointer points to 45°. (Fig. 51)
Adjusting the position of laser line (Fig. 52 & 53)
For model LS0714FL, LS0714L
WARNING:
• As the tool is plugged when adjusting the position of
laser line, take a full caution especially at switch action.
Pulling the switch trigger accidentally cause an acci-
dental start of the tool and personal injury.
CAUTION:
• Never look into the laser beam directly. Direct laser
beam causes damage to your eyes.
• Never apply a blow or impact to the tool. A blow or
impact causes the incorrect position of laser line, dam-
age to the laser beam emitting part or a short life of the
tool.
