Fine-Tune The Stand To Your Saw
Several fine-tuning adjustments exist in the mobile miter stand, allowing you to make precision cuts. • Adjusting the adjustable shelf: With the wings (H) held in place by the wing supports (G), place a long level on the mitersaw table and fences. Now, use a wrench to turn the nuts on the 6" bolts to raise or lower the adjustable shelf (E) front and back to make the saw table even with the wings. • Leveling the wings: With the long level still spanning the saw table and wings (H), adjust the lifting levelers on the wing supports (G) to bring the wings flush with the bottom edge of the level. • Aligning the fences: With the wings (H) and saw table even, place the straight edge of a long level against the saw’s fence and clamp it in position. Place the aluminum fences against the level and even with the outside ends of the wings. Make a center mark in each slot. Drill pilot holes in the slots, and install #12 × 3⁄4" panhead screws to secure the fences in perfect alignment with the saw fence.
