Push the carriage toward the guide fence and tighten the
knob 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
counterclockwise to seat the turn base in the 0° miter
notch. (Leave as it is if the pointer does not point to 0°.)
Loosen the hex bolts securing the guide fence using the
socket wrench.
Lower the handle fully and lock it in the lowered position

by pushing in the stopper pin. Square the side of the
blade with the face of the guide fence using a triangular
rule, try-square, etc. Then securely tighten the hex bolts
on the guide fence in the order from the right side.
