STEP 2. Adjust the bevel stops
CAUTION: Turn off and unplug saw.
1. Loosen the bevel lock handle and turn the bevel angle handwheel clockwise until it stops.
2. Raise the blade to its highest position and lift the blade guard.
3. Check blade angle with a combination square from left side of the blade, keeping the
square against the flat part of the blade and not touching the teeth or table insert.
4. If blade angle is wrong, turn the 90° stop screw (located to the left of the blade looking from
the front) 1 time counterclockwise with a 4mm hex wrench.
5. Turn handwheel until blade is 90° to the tabletop as indicated with a square.
6. Turn 90° stop screw (left of blade) clockwise till slight resistance is felt.
7. Check the 45° setting. Tilt the blade with the bevel handwheel as far as it will go to the left.
Place square against the blade (be sure the square is not against one of the saw teeth). If
the blade is not at 45°, unscrew the 45° stop screw (right of blade) turn handwheel 1 turn
clockwise, then crank wheel counterclockwise to bring blade to 45° setting and tighten the
screw. Recheck and repeat if necessary.
STEP 3. Bevel Pointer Adjustment
If bevel pointer does not point to "0", when blade is at 90° to the table top, loosen the point-
er screw with a phillips screwdriver. (The screw is accessible through the handwheel and
the curved slot in front of the saw.) Set the pointer to "0" and retighten the pointer screw.
STEP 4. Adjustment of Miter Gauge (Figure 24).
Your miter gauge features adjustable stops at 90° and 45° left and right. To adjust these
stops, loosen the lock nuts (A) and tighten or loosen the three adjusting screws (B). Check
the gauge with a combination square and tighten the three adjusting nuts. To set the miter
gauge past the 45 degree stops, pull out on the stop pin (C) and continue to the required
STEP 5. Rip Fence Operation and Adjustments (Figure 25)
CAUTION: The rip fence must be aligned parallel to the blade to minimize the danger of
For convenience sake, we will align the rip fence parallel to the saw blade. Your rip fence
has two adjustment procedures. The first, "Fence Parallel to Saw Blade," is performed as
1. Turn off and unplug table saw.
2. Raise blade to its full upright position at 90° to the table top.
3. Align the edge of the rip fence to the saw blade. Push the fence body firmly against the
table top rail to ensure proper fit.
4. Push down the cam lock lever to lock the fence in place.
5. If the fence no longer aligns with the saw blade, an adjustment is necessary. To adjust,
release cam lock lever and loosen (counterclockwise) the two 5mm alignment hex head
bolts on the top of the fence near the front, as shown in Figure 25.
6. With the two alignment bolts loosened, push on the fence body and move the rear of the
fence side to side as necessary to realign it with the blade. Re-tighten the two alignment
bolts and check alignment. Repeat as necessary.
1. Turn off and unplug table saw.
2. Release the cam lock lever.
3. To increase the clamping force of the rip fence, slowly tighten the tensioning nut (clock-

The micro adjustment knob is especially helpful when moving the rip fence left or right in small
increments. Push in on the knob and turn to move the rip fence to desired location.
1. Raise the saw blade approximately one inch above the table top by turning the blade
2. Remove the throat plate by loosening the phillips head screw in the front of the plate and

stationary, proper adjustment has been achieved.
NOTE: DO NOT TIGHTEN the tensioning nut to the point where the fence does not slide
easily on the table top.
IMPORTANT: To always obtain the best alignment of the rip fence, develop the habit of
holding the front block on the fence against the table top rail while tightening the cam lock
lever. Tighten the lock lever securely to prevent fence movement while sawing.
HINT: The rip scale pointer will need to be readjusted whenever a thicker or thinner blade
is installed. To readjust the pointer, loosen the phillips head screw and slide the plastic
piece to align the red mark. When making critical cuts, make a trial cut on scrap wood
rather than relying on the rip, bevel or miter scales or stops.
