NOTE: Be positive to measure the distance or make the test
on the same tooth of the saw blade in both front and rear
positions.
If an adjustment is necessary, proceed as follows: (Refer
to Figures 3 and 11). Loosen the hex head bolts and lock
washers (Fig. 11, Nos. 4 and 10) to the cabinet (Fig. 11,
No. 11). Shift the table until a position is found where
the saw blade is parallel to the miter gauge slots.
NOTE: Saw blade should also be centered within its table
insert opening.

Tighten four hex head bolts and lock washers (Figure 11,
Nos. 4 and 10) very securely. This procedure will set the
table in parallel position and prevent the table from shifting.
MOUNT TABLE EXTENSIONS
Refer to Figure 11, page 24.
Be certain both edges of table (No. 1) and table extension
(No. 2) are clean and free from any preservative, debris
or burrs.
Attach each table extension with three hex head bolts, lock
and flat washers (Nos. 3, 4 and 29). Fasten the hex head
bolts and lock washers to matching tapped holes in table.
Hand tighten.
Using a straightedge,
set top of extension flush with the
table top. Extension should also be centered front to rear.
First, slightly tighten the center bolt. If either end is not
flush, tap extension up or down with rubber mallet. Bring
extension in line with table. Securely tighten one bolt at
a time, keeping extension flush with table top.

Refer to Figures 11 and 12, pages 24 and 26.
Attach rip fence front rail (Fig. 12, No. 6) to front of table
(Fig. 11, No. 1). Rails will extend out approximately 36"
from right side of saw.
NOTE: Front rail is 2" x 2", rear rail is 1W' x 1Y#'.
Place front rail, oriented as shown in Figure 12, against
the table and locate the holes in the table. Fasten rail to
table with flat head screws (Fig. 12, No. 7) and with
washers and nuts (Fig. 12, Nos. 27, 28 and 29) on the
inside of the table. Finger tighten loosely. Tighten securely
after all fasteners have been attached.
Place rear rail (Fig. 12, No. 31), oriented as shown in
Figure 12, against the table and locate the holes in the
table. Place hex head bolt (Fig. 12, No. 32) through hole

Nos. 27, 28 and 29) inside table. Finger tighten loosely.
Tighten securely after all fasteners have been attached.
Attach one 8mm hex nut and foot to each leg (Fig 12,
Nos. 22, 38 and 39).
Attach each leg to the support bar using two 8mm hex
head bolts and lock washers (Fig. 12, Nos. 4, 5 and 41).
Set this assembly aside.
Position extension table (Fig. 12, No. 40) between the table
saw rails, with the holes in the table and rails aligned.
NOTE: The notch in the table should be positioned at the

have another person support table.
Secure extension table to the front rail using two 8mm flat
head screws, flat washers and hex nuts (Fig. 12, Nos. 36,
37 and 38). Secure the left side of the extension table to
the rear rail using a 10x35mm hex head bolt, flat washer
