Hey all. I’m new here, so bear with me and all the questions I’m getting ready to pop out. I have some tools, but now I need to learn about them before I begin.
I have a brand new, but slightly older model of a Dewalt chop saw (DW708) and the miter stand (DW723). I have just taken the miter stand out of the box, and would like to set it up properly so I’m not always on the floor, but I get stuck when reading directions that are cheap with pictures or diagrams.
Is there a front and back to the stand? There is a metal butterfly clip on the side with the logo. The directions tell me that one of the brackets must engage the locator clip . This clip does slide. Do I tighten it in a certain spot? And when it says “engage”, does that mean that I make sure one of these brackets clips into the middle of said clip?
In the hardware bag, it comes with en extra carriage bolt for use as the forward right bolt on certain miter saws. I happen to have one that is mentioned. Something about clearance with the table is needed. SAY WHAT??? Again, no pictures of where to place said bolt.
AND I think, but am not positive…last one.
The bolt and washer order…..bolt slides through bottom of bracket. I am assuming I don’t add the washer or lock washer thing to it before sliding through the bottom because it has a square head that sits in the slot. So bolt through bottom, then large washer, small washer with split in it then bolt.
I have looked for videos, and have asked questions elsewhere, but the answer was somewhat vague, and videos for what I just asked are probably hidden someplace listed under “I can’t believe she had to ask that” section.
