8 easy steps to installing a riser block


Separate the saw arm from the base
Separate the saw arm from the base

Begin by removing the blade, upper blade guides, guide post, and both blade guards. Store the parts in a labeled box or bag. Next, follow the steps shown here to install the riser block kit. Although you can do it alone, you may want to enlist an assistant to help when you reinstall the saw arm.

Remove the bolt that holds the saw arm to the base. The arm simply lifts off, but be prepared - it's heavy and awkward.
