  • MS1250LZ1 Compound Miter - Zero Clearance Throat Plate

    Hi,

    I've only used my Compound Miter a couple of times, but noticed the Zero Clearance Throat Plate is "chewed up" on the sides. I wouldn't think it even be possible for the blade to chew the sides of the plastic up.

    Anyone else have this happen? What am I doing wrong? The blade is square the bots all seem tight.

    Thanks!

    Make a couple of test cuts and check them for squareness. It's possible that you're applying some sideward pressure as you pull the blade housing down.

      If you're making compound miter cuts then the plastic inserts (0 clerance) need to be widened. If you're making straight cuts and this is happening then just "tweak" the inserts a little.

        Make sure you are keeping the well below the throat plates
        cleaned out. The blade maybe coming down on what is in the
        well and trying to chop the little scraps up between the blade
        and the plate ... that can cause this problem also.
