Maintaining maximum cutting capacity
This tool is factory adjusted to provide the maximum cutting
capacity for a 305 mm (12") saw blade.
When installing a new blade, always check the lower limit
position of the blade and if necessary, adjust it as follows:
First, unplug the tool. Push the carriage toward the guide
fence fully and lower the handle completely. Use the socket
wrench to turn the adjusting bolt until the periphery of the
blade extends slightly below the top surface of the turn base
at the point where the front face of the guide fence meets the
top surface of the turn base.
With the tool unplugged, rotate the blade by hand while hold-
ing the handle all the way down to be sure that the blade
does not contact any part of the lower base. Re-adjust
slightly, if necessary.
After installing a new blade, always be sure that the
blade does not contact any part of the lower base when
the handle is lowered completely. Always do this with the
The lower limit position of the blade can be easily adjusted
with the stopper arm. To adjust it, move the stopper arm in
the direction of the arrow as shown in the figure. Adjust the
adjusting screw so that the blade stops at the desired posi-
tion when lowering the handle fully.
