  • New TS3650 + Miter Gauge problem

    Hi all. Thanks for the great advice you've posted so far. This is a great resource. The best of which is to use the online version of the instruction manual rather than the printed one.
    Got my saw assembled yesterday. Only problems were: put the handwheels on before lifting upright; ended up breaking one . Still working on the correct belt tension. The "Buddy" thread was helpful.
    Have one problem I haven't seen addressed here that I'm hoping you guys can help with:
    The lock knob on the miter gauge won't screw all the way down & won't lock. I took it out and looked in the hole & can't really see much. Other than the washer are there any other parts I may be missing?
    I see a small set screw on the bottom of the flat side. Could that need adjusted? Any help would be appreciated.

    Arrgh. Nevermind. Figured out that you need to put the lock knob in the arc-shaped slot below. Geez it's been a while since I took shop!
