THE RIP FENCE
The rip fence scale indicator is installed on the right
side of the rip fence but can be removed and rein-
stalled on the left side if needed. If a cutting operation
requires placing the rip fence on the left side of the
blade, and you find relocating the indicator necessary,
simply unscrew and re-attach it.
Hook the back of the rip fence over the rear rail.
See Figure 12. Lowper the front of the rip fence
into the groove on the front rail. See Figure 13.
Slide the rip fence back and forth. It should move
freely with about 1/16 in. clearance below the rip
fence. If it doesn't, loosen the nuts holding the front
rail and adjust the rail up or down. See Figure 6.
Remove the rip fence and repeat on the other side
of the blade. When the fence rides smoothly,
tighten all rail hex nuts with a 12 mm wrench.
Push in the micro-adjust
knob and turn it. The gear
on the shaft assembly will engage the rack teeth
on the rack and will move the fence assembly left
Push down on the rip fence handle to lock the rip
fence in place.
