Place the tool on a flat surface. Loosen the lock lever and
lower the tool body until the bit just touches the flat
surface. Press the lock lever down to lock the tool body.
Now lower the stopper pole until it makes contact with the
stopper block. The stopper pole can be moved rapidly by
depressing the fast-feed button. Raise the stopper pole
until the desired depth of cut is obtained. The depth of cut
is equal to the distance between the stopper pole and the
stopper block. Stopper pole travel can be checked with
the scale (1 mm per graduation) on the tool body. Minute
depth adjustments can be obtained by turning the
stopper pole (1.5 mm per turn).
The stopper block has the adjusting hex bolts which
move 1 mm per turn. They are convenient for making
stepped cuts. To adjust the hex bolts, first loosen the hex
nuts on the hex bolts with the wrench and then turn the
hex bolts. After obtaining the desired position, tighten the
hex nuts.
Nylon nut
By turning the nylon nut, the upper limit of the tool body
can be adjusted. When the tip of the bit is retracted more
