WARNING:
Failure to unplug your saw could result
in accidental starting causing possible serious
personal injury.
Push down on the saw arm and pull out the lock pin to
release the saw arm.
Raise saw arm to its full raised position.
Loosen the miter lock handle approximately one-half
turn.
Depress the miter lock plate and rotate the miter table
until the pointer on the control arm is positioned at 0.
Release the miter lock plate and securely tighten the
miter lock handle.
Lay a framing square flat on the miter table. Place one
leg of the square against the fence. Place the other leg
of the square beside the zero clearance throat plate in
the miter table. The edge of the square and the zero
clearance throat plate in the miter table should be par-
allel as shown in figure 15.
If the edge of the framing square and the zero clear-
ance throat plate in the miter table are not parallel as
shown in figures 16 and 17, adjustments
are needed.
