BLADE
HEIGHT
ADJUSTMENT
Refer to Figures
7 and 9, pages
18 and 22.
Blade
height
is controlled
by handwheel
(Fig. 9, No. 27) on
the front of the saw.
To adjust
height,
loosen
locking
hand knob (Fig. 9, No. 23).
Rotate
knob counterclockwise
approximately
three turns.
Turn handwheel
to desired
blade
height.
CAUTION:
For safety,
blade should
be raised
only W' above
the surface
of the material
to be cut. However,
if hollow
ground
blades
are used, raise blade
to its maximum
height to
allow for greater
blade
clearance.
Lock blade
height
into position.
Lock handwheel
(Fig. 9,
No. 27) by tightening
locking
knob (Fig. 9, No. 23) clock-
wise. Tighten
only until snug.
IMPORTANT:
Do not over tighten.
Only a small
amount
of
pressure
is necessary
to lock handwheel
securely.
The blade
height
mechanism
has upper
and lower limit
stops (Fig. 7, Nos. 17 and 37). These
limit stops are set at
the factory
and need
no further
adjustment.
BLADE
TILT
ADJUSTMENT
Refer to Figures
8 and 9, pages
20 and 22.
The saw blade
can be set at any angle between

by the handwheel
(Fig. 9, No.
27) on the left side of the saw. The indicator
(Fig. 8, No. 15)
on front of saw shows the tilt angle of the blade.
To adjust tilt, loosen
locking
hand
knob (Fig. 9, No. 23).
Rotate
knob counterclockwise
at least three turns. Turn
handwheel
to desired
blade angle.
Lock blade angle
into

21) against
the lug on the front trunnion.
Do not turn too
far; recheck
90 °. Tighten
