Portable Miter Saw Station
Page 22: Figure 12
Location of the hole for the 3/8" diameter rod (in the clamp block and stop block) is incorrect. If hole is drilled in that location, the 5/16" x 2 1/4" threaded knob will not lock the 3/8" diameter rod in place. The hole is shown 5/8" from the bottom of the clamp block but it should be 1". If you change the location of the hold in the clamp block you must also change the location of the hold in the stop block from 5/8" to 1". If you have already drilled the holes in the clamp block and the stop block you must drop a short section of 3/8" diameter dowel, approx. 5/8" long down the hole for the threaded knob. The dowel will lock the rod in place when you insert the threaded knob.
