I purchased a Square Cut to use with my DeWalt battery circular saw. When I attempted to make the initial adjustment, I found that I could not slide the guide arm far enough into the guide to let me make a cut. I removed the sliding arm, and using my scroll saw, I elongated the smaller slot by about 1/4". I then used a small saw to also remove part of the sliding arm stop. The Square Cut works perfectly now and it only took about 10 minutes to fix. Hope this gives you ideas to try on yours....

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…
