MITER GAUGE OPERATION
For cross-cutting (blade set 90 degrees to the table), the
miter gauge can be used in either table slot. For bevel
cross-cutting (with the blade tilted), use the miter gauge
in the right table slot only so that the blade will be tilted
away from the miter gauge and your hands.
To operate the miter gauge, loosen the lock knob (E)
Fig. 34, and rotate the miter gauge to the desired angle.
ADJUSTING BLADE PARALLEL TO MITER GAUGE SLOTS
The blade was adjusted parallel to the miter gauge slots at the factory. In order to ensure accurate cuts and help prevent
kickback, check this adjustment.
DISCONNECT MACHINE FROM POWER SOURCE.
1. Raise the blade to its highest position and adjust the blade so that it is 90 degrees to the table.
2. Select a tooth on the saw blade that is set to the left. Mark this tooth with a pencil or marker.
3. Use a combination square (A) Fig. 35 against the miter gauge slot and adjust the blade (B) of the square until it
touches the marked tooth.
4. Rotate the blade and check the same marked blade tooth at the rear of the saw table (Fig. 36).
5. If the front and back measurements (Figs. 35 and 36)
are not identical, you can adjust the blade. Start by
loosening the nuts below the four screws (C) Fig. 37
on the table. Then loosen the screws (C). Carefully
move the saw blade until the blade is parallel to the
miter gauge slot. When done, tighten four nuts
under the table and the four screws (C) Fig. 37
NOTE: If sufficient adjustment cannot be achieved by
loosening the screws (C) Fig. 37, loosen the screw (D)
Fig. 37 necessary to make the adjustment.
