PIVOT ADJUSTMENTS
NOTE: These adjustments were made at the factory and
normally do not require readjustment.
TRAVEL
PIVOT ADJUSTMENT
The saw arm should rise completely to the up position
by itself.
If the saw arm does not raise by itself or if there is play
in the pivot joints, have saw repaired by a qualified
service technician at your nearest Sears store or repair
center to avoid risk of personal injury.
BEVEL PIVOT ADJUSTMENT
Your compound miter saw should bevel easily by loos-
ening the bevel lock knob and tilting the saw arm to the
left.
If movement is tight or if there is play in the pivot, have
saw repaired by a qualified service technician at your
nearest Sears store or repair center to avoid risk of
personal injury.
DEPTH STOP
See Figure 37,
The depth stop limits the blade's downward travel. It
allows the blade to go below the miter table enough to
maintain full cutting capacities. The depth stop positions
the blade 1/4 in. from the miter table support.
NOTE: The miter table support is located inside miter
table.
The depth stop is factory set to provide maximum cut-
ting capacity for the 10 in. saw blade provided with your
saw. Therefore, the saw blade provided should never need
adjustments.
However, when the diameter of the blade has been re-
duced due to sharpening, it may be necessary to adjust
the depth stop to provide maximum cutting capacity. Also,
when a new blade is installed, it is necessary to check the
clearance of the blade to the miter table support before
starting the saw. Make adjustments
if needed.
