WARNING:
Failure to unplug your saw could result
in accidental starting causing possible serious
personal injury.
Pull the saw arm all the way down and engage the lock
pin to hold the saw arm in transport 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.
Loosen bevel lock knob and set saw arm at 0 bevel
(blade set 90 to miter table). Tighten bevel lock knob.
Place a combination
square against the miter table and
the flat part of saw blade.
NOTE: Make sure that the square contacts the flat part
of the saw blade, not the blade teeth.
Rotate the blade by hand and check the blade-to-table
alignment at several points.
The edge of the square and the saw blade should be
parallel as shown in figure 23.
If the top or bottom of the saw blade angles away from
the square as shown in figures 24 and 25, adjustments
are needed.
Using a 10 mm wrench or adjustable wrench, loosen
the lock nut securing positive stop adjustment screw.
Also loosen bevel lock knob. See Figure 36.
Adjust positive stop adjustment screw to bring
saw blade into alignment with the square.
Retighten bevel lock knob. Next, retighten lock nut
securing the positive stop adjustment screw. Recheck
blade-to-table
alignment.
NOTE: The above procedure can be used to check
blade squareness of the saw blade to the miter table at
both 0° and 45 angles.
