I have managed so adjust the saw blade to 0 degrees and 45 degrees to the left but cannot get the blade to 45d to the right. The adjustment bolt is below the right adjustment bolt for the 0 degree scale. I have adjusted it and the degree pointer will only move about 10d maximum. If I kept turning it it seems as if the bolt would come out completely before 45 degrees was achieved.
By left and right adjustments I mean from the aspect of standing in front of the saw and the degree pointer would be left or right not the blade itself.

Jerry, are you trying to bevel 45 degrees to the right? I have the same model and if you are trying to do that then look towards the back of the machine. There is a black plastic arrow piece that you have to press for the unit to bevel to the right. I hope that is what you were asking.

Ah so! Yes it works. I don’t care what they say about you, you are OK.
Thank you.
