PRECISION INDEXING
Experienced
operators of precision

such as your
Craftsman
Radial-Arm
Saw, normally
acquire the habit of
indexing
the machine
in one direction
only, whenever
a
new setting is made in preparation
for a different
operation.
For
example:
when
moving
the radial
arm to a new
position,
it is advisable to move it slightly
past the desired
index position,
then return
it slowly and carefully
to latch

Chute
and lock it. Figure 34 inset shows the radial arm being securely indexed
by "tapping"
the arm latch lever with the
palm of the hand. Swivel indexing
and bevel indexing
can
be accomplished
in a similar
manner
This indexing
technique tends to neutralize
any stresses imposed upon the saw
components,
and contributes
to the high degree of accuracy
the saw is capable of producing
when operated expertly.

midway between
the two sides of the yoke. When sufficient
wear has

small degree of heeling will cause the wood to smoke
because of the frictional
heat produced.
When ripping,
heeling
can cause kickbacks.
