  • Miter detent problem

    Just set up a new miter saw ( model # R4221). The miter detent bar will not drop down far enough to catch in the detent slots. Has to be something simple. Anyone have any ideas or solutions?

    I don't have that saw however I'd refer to the rendering of the owners manual and view the miter detent assembly, perhaps there you can find an answer.

      Hey, kcandy! Coincidentally I have just finished setting up my 4221 this morning and had the same question. I found in the manual that if you press the detent lever completely, it will "click" and that disengages the detent completely. To re-engage it, press the lever again until it "clicks" and that should do it. I assumed that the re-engage action was automatic and it is not on this saw. Hope this helps.
