compound Slide Gib

figure 98 shows the gib arrangement for the
compound slide. the compound slide gib adjusts
in the same manner and with the same tools
as the cross slide gib. however, in this case, to
increase or decrease tension, the gib adjustment
screw directions are reversed.

Saddle Gib
the saddle is supplied with a carriage lock on the
front right-hand side of the slide (see figure 99).
this bolt locks the saddle in place for increased
rigidity when making face cuts. Before making
adjustments to the saddle gib, make sure that this
lock is loose by turning it counterclockwise one
full turn.
IMpORTANT: Do not loosen the carriage lock
more than a couple of turns or the components
inside will come apart. Re-installing these compo-
nents is difficult and time consuming.

Carriage lock
the saddle gib is located on the bottom of the
back edge of the slide (figure 100). this gib is
designed differently than the cross or compound
slide gibs. instead of being a wedge-shaped
plate, it is a flat bar. the gib pressure is applied
by four set screws. hex nuts secure these set
screws in place, so they will not loosen during
operation.
