Clamp Lever - How to loosen and tighten to adjust bevel.

I just bought my saw and I cannot release the clamp lever to adjust the angle of bevel cut. The directions are unclear as to which and where the 8mm bolts are located that must be loosened to release the clamp?

The 8mm bolt head, which is below the "stop plate"--- for olack of a better word-- is only to ALLOW ROOM to complete the swivel of the bevel-- ONCE THE CLAMP LEVER IS LOOSENED!! I neither have been able to loosen the CLAMP LEVER!! There is a large philips screwhead inside the handle of the lever, which I tried to loosen without much luck. I am very afraid to force that... ALSO, i tapped on the lever handle itself to see if it would unstick, but with no luck AND DIDNT WANT TO FORCE THAT EITHER!! So here I am online looking for answers again!!

    OH YES-- I just visited another website and found the answer, "The black clamp lever handle is 'reverse threaded'. LOOKING AT THE SAW FROM THE REAR, to loosen, you turn clock-wise, as though you were tightening it." Would have been an important fact to include in the Hitachi User Instructions!!

New Hitachi miter saw C10FCG can't get clamp lever to loosen to set bevel angel. Help?


I have a Bosch, and I am not really familiar with your model Hitachi. However, I do know that most compound miter saws have a locking pin that clicks in at frequently used settings like 90 and 45. This pin must be released (pulled out) before the bevel can be changed.

Ks656pe how do i change the blade? i don't have any instruction. Please


Quick-Change Blade Mechanism
Higher-end models, such as the Linefinder Orbital Jigsaw, feature a clamping lever to hold the saw blade. To change a blade, switch off the jigsaw, unplug it, and let the used blade cool down. Pull up the saw-blade locking lever and let the used blade fall out with a slight shake. Turn the jigsaw upside down. Hold the fresh blade with its teeth forward; insert the blade shank into the blade holder as deeply as it will go. Release the lever and wiggle the blade to confirm that it's snugly in place. For models with rollers, such as the Accu-Trak, nestle the blade against the rollers.
Clamp or Hex Screws
Loosen the pair of screws -- on the front of the mechanism of models such as the single-speed jigsaw -- a full turn counterclockwise with a flathead screwdriver, but do not remove them. The used blade will fall out. Insert the new blade fully into the clamp. Lightly tighten each screw alternately and then fully. On older models, you may find a single hex screw on the side of the blade. Loosen this enough to remove the blade, and then insert a new blade carefully so the teeth face forward. Retighten the screw.

How to adjust governor on a Tecumseh hmsk80?


Static Governor Adjust.

With the engine stopped, loosen the screw holding the
governor clamp on the governor lever. Rotate the clamp in
a direction that will force the throttle shaft open and allow
the governor follower arm to rest on the governor spool.
Push the governor lever connected to the throttle to the
wide open throttle position. Hold the lever and clamp in
this position while tightening the screw.

Which bolts do i loosen to adjust the 45% angle of my blade? Ive already squared up my blade by using a square and laid it down on the deck and squared the back rail like that> but how do i square...


To adjust the bevel, (blade angle), loosen the black lever at the back of the unit, tilt the blade housing using the handle (this may require a fair bit of force) until the arrow on the scale is at 45 degrees then tighten the black lever.

How do I release the arm of a radial arm saw to cut miters?


Near the blade there should be a clamp that allows the saw head to be tilted to cut an angle miter through the board. The other miter adjustment is a clamp at the top of the post to let the radial arm swing at an angle, this would be used in conjunction with the other adjustment to cut a compound miter. I hope you are not totally confused now.

Bevel locking lever won't tighten


It looks like that handle should be able to pull straight off the end of the shaft once you remove the screw. See this exploded parts view: http://www.makita.com/en-us/Assets/images/Products/_PartsBreakdowns/PB_2703.pdf

My experience with them is that people tend to get frustrated and abandon the lock lever and just run the saw "loose". Scary as it sounds, I've seen it on more than one site.

Anyway, I don't have a fix for you if you can't get the handle off to re-position it.
Makita does have a tech support line if you want to give it a try. Otherwise, you may have to shell out a few bucks to one of their service centers. We used to have a great one in Albuquerque, but it's now defunct. People don't seem to repair tools like they used to...

Bought model 3400 skil table saw. have no manual. can't find control for tilting blade. how do i tilt blade


This model does not have a knob on the side.
There is only a locking lever on the front next to a single rotating wheel for height adjustments. To tilt the blade simply twist the locking lever to the left and push the height adjustment wheel to the right. It can be a bit stiff at times to move.
