Always be sure that the tool is switched off and the battery cartridge is removed before

Adjusting the cutting angle
This tool is carefully adjusted and aligned at the factory, but rough handling may have
affected the alignment. If your tool is not aligned properly, perform the following:
1) Miter angle
Push the carriage toward the guide
fence and tighten the clamp screw to
secure the carriage. Loosen the grip
which secures the turn base. Turn the
turn base so that the pointer points to
0" on the miter scale. Then turn the
turn base slightly clockwise and coun-
terclockwise to seat the turn base cozily
in the 0" miter notch. Loosen the three
hex bolts securing the guide fence
using the socket wrench.
