The saw arm should rise completely to the up

ADJUSTMENT
Your compound miter saw should bevel easily by
loosening bevel lock knob and tilting saw arm to
the left.
If movement is fight or if there is play in the pivot,
have saw repaired by a qualified service techni-
cian at your nearest Sears store or repair center
to avoid risk of personal injury.
DEPTH
STOP
The depth stop limits the blade's downward travel. It
allows the blade to go below the miter table enough to
maintain full cutting capacities. The depth stop
positions the blade 114 in. from the miter table sup-
port.
Note: The miter table support is located inside miter
table.
The depth stop is factory set to provide maximum
cutting capacity for the 8-1/4 in. saw blade provided
with your saw. Therefore, the saw blade provided
should never need adjustments.
However, when the diameter of the blade has been
reduced due to sharpening, it may be necessary to
adjust the depth stop to provide maximum cutting
capacity. Also, when a new blade is installed, it is
necessary to check the clearance of the blade to the
miter table support before starting the saw. Make
adjustments if needed.

WARNING:
Failure to unplug your saw could
result in accidental starting causing possible
serious personal injury.
To adjust the depth stop use a 17 mm wrench or
adjustable wrench and loosen the hex nut at the
rear of the miter saw arm.
Use the 5 mm hex key provided to adjust the
depth stop adjustment screw. The saw blade is
lowered by turning the screw counter-clockwise
and raised by turning the screw clockwise.
