Despite rigorous quality control procedures, in some instances the grub screw, used to locate the hinge pin, may not be fully tightened. This may allow the hinge pin to move off centre and in extreme circumstances may cause the hinge mechanism to become partially detached,

Please note the following important maintenance instructions:

* Ensure that the hinge pin is located flush on both sides of the hinge mechanism

* If the hinge pin is off centre then top gently with a hammer until flush

* Tighten the grub screw using a suitable hex key

* In some instances it may be necessary to loosen the grub screw prior to aligning the hinge pin

* Always ensure that the grub screw is tightened and the pin flush before use

This, along with other fixings, should be regularly checked as part of the general maintenance of your mitre saw, as laid out in the instruction manual.
