Hi LJs,

Is the lateral adjustment lever and subsequently the lateral adjustment of the blade supposed to be sloppy easy or should the lever cap be tightened down over the blade and breaker so that there’s a bit of resistance?

Thanks for your advice.

You want it tight, but not too tight that it’s still not a chore to move right and left.
