This article is to provide a basic step by step to install a table insert. There are two different styles of table inserts: one style uses Phillips head screws, located under the insert and the other style uses set screws, threaded into the insert itself. Below find the instructions to adjust each different style of insert:
Phillips Head Screw Version: Typically found on Hybrid versions.
- First make sure the saw is disconnected from power, then lower the blade all the way down.
- Next look in the throat of the saw to make sure the countersunk screws are in the tabs; these are used to level the table insert.
- Next install the table insert in the throat of the saw and check for flatness as well as rocking.
- Using the holes in the insert place a Philips screwdriver in the hole to adjust the height of each.
- Screw until the insert is level.
- Do not put the screw into the insert from the top, they will not sit flush and there will be no adjustments.
- Raise and lower the blade to make sure there is no contact with the insert.
Set Screw Version (3mm): Typically found on our cabinet saws.
- Disconnect the power to the saw.
- Ensure all four set screws are firmly in contact with the table casting.
- Using a 3mm hex wrench, raise or lower each of the four set screws shown in figure 25 until the insert is flush with the table top.
- Use a straightedge to make sure the table insert is flush with the top of the table.
Notice: The table insert must be flush with the table top or the workpiece will hit the edge of the table insert at the beginning of the cut.
The specific table insert adjustment procedure is located in the respective operators manual for each machine we offer.
