Got my Rip Cut and have done something wrong.  The sled won't slide onto the Guide Rail due to theL ock Wedge being in the way.  Please note that I had a stroke 2 years ago and am using woodworking as rehab since I am much recovered physically, but still have some mental fuzziness when following drawn instructions.

Any help would be appreciated! (It has taken me 4 hrs so far to assemble)

got it

I recived mine this afternoon.  loosen the ny-loc nuts until it will slide

Once the slide will gluide down the channel, it adjusted properly it works great.

It took me about 20 minutes to completrly assemble and calibrate.

just take your time and follow the directions, no hurry.

If you need some help, ask for it.

I would be glade to help you.  Kent at 801 969 0703

Great, If you you ever need help call me.  My wife suffered a stroked in 2004 and was in the hospital for

9 months.

...Yes, the screws holding the locking lever may need some fine-tuning to get the correct amount of force needed to pull the wedge piece up from the bottom. Additionally, I sprayed some Lami-Lube on the aluminum extrusion, from tip to tip, making it slicker, facilitating a better sliding action. When the Rip-Cut is calibrated it works superb.  

Thanks for the great advice!

Kent, I'm a RN in a rehab facility, work with stroke patients all the time, on their behalf thank you for the extra effort. These proves how great woodworking is, brings out the best in people. Dave Andrews

Thanks Dave.  Rehab worked miracles for me.  On behalf of stroke patients everywhere, Bless You! I went from paralyzed on one side to being able to reclaim my life through the efforts of my rehab people.  I am using woodworking for my own rehab because it requires both mental acuity and physical effort.   (I am female).  And it is immensely rewarding.  I just finished a laundry dresser for my daughter, using plans from the Ana-white.com site.  I also made shelves for my grandkids, and made a mudroom locker system.

Miter Saw Recommendation 1 Reply

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
