How to Unlock a Miter Saw

hi I'm Dave troll to show a gallery

custom friends to shop in st. Petersburg

Florida and I'm going to show you how to

unlock a miter saw the first thing we

want to do is unlock the head and this

is common to all mitre saws and the

easiest way to do it it's put a little

pressure on the head push it down a

little and in this case there's a knob

right here pull that out and we've

unlocked the head if you have a sliding

miter saw there's a lock on the slide in

my case it's this right here well loosen

that we've now unlocked the slide the

next is to unlock your table so you can

make adjustments there here again this

usually knob in the front in this case I

can loosen that knob and we get to our

desired angle we can go ahead and lock

that back down the final adjustment is

to lock the bevel and in this case and

you're not going to see this on all saws

but on some of your size you can rotate

that and we can now tilt tilt our saw

some saws will tilt one way some will

tilt both ways and in this case I have a

stop right here

now I can slide that stop back and I can

now tilt to either side of square when I

want to come back to square

I've pushed that stop back out come back

make sure we're touching and then go

ahead and lock it back in place give it

an extra little twist there and real

simply that's how to unlock a miter saw
