  1. Unlock the Blade Guide by turning the knob labeled "Lock" on the back of the machine. This allows you to alter the height of the blade.
  2. Set the Blade Guide Height by turning the knob labeled "Adjustment" on the back of the machine. A good height is about 1/4" above the piece you are cutting.
  3. Lock the Blade Guide by turning the knob labeled "Lock" on the back of the machine. This will secure the blade and provide a better cut.
  4. Check the stock height by placing he stock next to the blade to ensure the 1/4" margin is there. Double checking is always a good thing.
