I am attempting to readjust the stop to aline the blade to the table at 90 degrees. I can see the 45 degree stop through the slit in the front. After checking the manual, I set the saw on it’s front side. How do I reach in there to find the stop much less do the adjustment?

The one on mine can be accessed through the motor cover. The bolt/locking nut should be visible and accessible from the motor cover. My saw is a right tilt, I’m only guessing but it seems like it might be the same on a left tilt.

Do yourself a favor and back them out as far as possible. With sawdust that can accumulate inside the cabinet, on many surfaces, they will not be terribly accurate for long. I don’t use the stops on any of my saws, preferring to set bevel angles with either drafting squares or a wifey digital angle cube.

Turns out the problem was a build up of sawdust in the gears. I blew it out and – wala – problem solved. Thank you hugely for your suggestions.
