TO CHECK MITER FENCE ALIGNMENT
The miter fence must be perpendicular
to the blade
when set at zero degrees.
Set the miter fence (H) at 0 ° as shown in figure 56.
(I) should be set precisely
on 0° and
in place with adjusting
Note: The quick-stop
is not necessary
However, you may want to
check and adjust it to 0 ° at this time. See "Quick-
section that follows.
Place a framing
square (G) firmly against the miter
fence (H), with the other side against the blade (E).
See Figure 56.
Check whether the miter fence and blade are
square with each other. With the framing square
against the miter fence there should be no gap
from the front to the rear of the blade.
If a gap exists, the miter fence may be out of
Rotate the blade and recheck. If there is a
consistent gap between the front and rear of the
blade, the miter table needs aligning. Follow the
adjustment procedures that follow.
TO ADJUST THE MITER BASE
Remember: Check all settings before loosening
screws for the following procedures. Once screws
have been loosened, these settings must be reset.
Eight screws are visible on the miter base (B).
Four screws (K) are on the holder plates and
secure these plates to the rails. It is not necessary
to loosen or adjust these screws for this adjust-
pair of screws
(L) is in the base, at the
rear. Loosen these two screws (L) and the rear
miter locking clamps
(M). See Figure 57.
The last pair of screws is located on the infeed side
of the base. Loosen the left screw (N) only.
The right screw (O) will be used as a pivot point.
Note: The front two miter locking clamps (P) and
should remain locked.
