Re: Saw har to rotate for bevel cuts
There are tabs on the glide rings and yes there are only 3, you should find indentations in the base for the rings, I would clean them off thoroughly and use a lithium grease on them (film coat) check the table for signs that the rings have dug into it and if so smooth out before reassembling. If tabs are broke off the glide rings you would need to replace them. Let me know if you need more help

Go to www.2helpu.com that is the dewalt site. You might have to change the link arm that moves the guard up. They get bent over time. Check other parts on the raise and lower assy for wear at the same time.
there are no instructions that I am aware of but you can download an operators manual by going to dewaltservicenet.com and typing in your model number and it will ask you for the type number also. I would try before LOOSENING anything up taking some WD-40 or similar penetrating spray and after letting sit try to GENTLY move the arm assembly. Let me know if you need more assistance.
1. immediatelly switch off saw 2. remove cord from the plug 3. remove blade from machine 4. reverse blade 180degree and install it in direction of the rotation! if you look at saw from the blade side, rotation is clockwise!!! and cutting edge of teh teeth should point clockwise! 5. install and tighten the blade 6. plug in and switch in short burst only, check if it is rotating in proper direction and blade have teeth in proper direction 7. make test cut
Do not forget that this is not a toy, blade on circular saw cut through wood, metal and your fingers... always wear googles or eye/face protection shield, you have only two eyes and no spares...
Enjoy your woodworking experience! Always observe safety and machine rules.
Hope this allow you to fix the problem. Please leave note how did you go.
The bevel is an angle fiding tool. it consists of a wooden section about 4" long with a swivel bolt at one end connected to a slotted metal blade (similar to a 1 foot steel ruler). The bolt has a wing nut and bolt to allow loosenig to allow the blade to rotate and slide to the required angle where it is locked into position using the wing nut.
The mitre is a wooden block with slots cut into it at pre determined angles. ie 45 degrees. When cutting a mitre joint the wood is placed against the block and the saw follows the line of the slot cutting the 45 degree angle.
Hope this makes sense and good luck
2 POSSIBLE THING'S ,1 THE BLADE IS BENT ,A CAUSE OBEING PINCHED IN MIDSTROKE OF CUTTING OR IF NOT THAT YOU CAN GET A FLAT WASHER TO USE AS A SPACER BETWEEN THE ARBOR BOLT AND THE BLADE TO MAKE UP THE DIFFERENCE.MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE RIGHT ARBOR DIAMATOR BLADE IN THE SAW FIRST HOPE THIS HELPS.(PLEASE RATE THIS) THANK'S
Just read thru most of the user manual and they do not address this situation. Most major adjustments they list as Service Center meaning they might have to completely disassemble and find out hy this saw is not accurate, wish I had better news.
