Nice purchase. You will love the enclosed motor cabinet design as it really helps keep the dust under control.
Having the cabinet mounted trunnion, really makes aligning the miter to the blade a fairly easy task.

The others are right, I’ve put together two of them, and used Purp’s blog the first time which really really helped.

It does take a little time to get the fence just the way you like it, but at least there are adjustment screws for parallel both to the blade and the table top. Once I got mine parallel to the blade I put a couple drops of the blue loctite on the adjustment screw threads, and it has held perfect.

Let us know if you have any issues that we can help with.

FYI once you get the Herc-u-lift on you will need help tilting it upright or if by yourself, you can take off the top and tilt the cab body up without much difficulty. Just take note when removing the 4 bolts of any factory installed shims put in to level the top. These have to go back exactly in the same position so that your bevel cuts will be true.
