Your compound miter saw has been adjusted at the fac-
tory for making very accurate cuts. However, some of the
components
might have moved out of alignment during
shipping. Also, over a period of time, readjustment will
probably become necessary due to wear. After unpacking
your saw, check the following adjustments
before you be-
gin using saw. Make any readjustments
that are necessary
and periodically check the parts alignment to make sure
that your saw is cutting accurately.
WARNING:
Your saw should never be connected
n
to a power supply when you are assembling parts,
making adjustments,
installing or removing blades,
or when not in use. Disconnecting
your saw will
prevent accidental starting that could cause serious
injury.
