correct cutting depth is shown in Figure 6. Lay a piece of the material you plan
to cut along the side of the blade, as shown, and observe how much tooth
projects beyond the material.
NOTE: When using carbide-tipped blades, make an exception to the above
rule and allow only one-half of a tooth to project above the material to be cut.

Bevel Angle Adjustment

The full range of the bevel adjustment is from 0˚ to 50˚. The quadrant is
graduated in increments of 5˚. On the front of the saw is a bevel angle
adjustment mechanism (Figure 7) consisting of a calibrated quadrant and a
lever. To set the saw for a bevel cut:
1. TURN OFF TOOL AND DISCONNECT FROM POWER SUPPLY.
2. Loosen (counterclockwise) the quadrant lever or knob and tilt shoe to the
desired angle by aligning the pointer with the desired angle mark.
3. Retighten lever firmly (clockwise).
NOTE: The quadrant pointer, located between the quadrant lever or knob and
the quadrant, can be adjusted after loosening its screw. Retighten firmly
after adjustment.
Kerf Indicator
The front of the saw shoe has a kerf indicator (Figure 7) for vertical and bevel
cutting. This indicator enables you to guide the saw along cutting lines
penciled on the material being cut. The indicator lines up with the left (inner)
side of the saw blade, which makes the slot or "kerf" cut by the moving blade
fall to the right of the indicator. Guide along the penciled cutting line so that
the kerf falls into the waste or surplus material (Figure 8). Figure 8 shows the
dimensions of the shoe. Note that the left side is 5-1/2" between the left side of

the blade and the left edge of the shoe (standard 6x lumber). The right
dimension is 1-1/2" (standard 2x lumber).
Shoe Alignment
Your saw has been set at the factory for accurate vertical cuts (a 90˚ angle
between the bottom of the shoe and the blade). The edge of the shoe has also
been set parallel to the blade so that it will not bind when using an edge guide.
If the saw should ever need adjusting, it may be done as follows:
ADJUSTING FOR 90˚ CUTS
1. TURN OFF TOOL AND DISCONNECT FROM POWER SUPPLY.
2. Adjust the saw to 0˚ bevel.
3. Place the saw on blade side (Figure 9). Retract blade guard.
4. Loosen quadrant lever or knob (Figure 9). Place a square against the blade
and shoe to adjust the 90˚ setting.
5. Loosen the hex nut with a wrench or needle nose pliers, and move the
adjustment screw so that the shoe will stop at the proper angle as shown in
Figure 10. Lock the screw in place by tightening the hex nut.
6. It may be necessary to adjust the quadrant angle pointer to line up on "0"
after shoe has been adjusted.
