Kapex Question
« on: February 08, 2020, 11:57 AM »
I recently purchased a KS 120 EB.  As I adjust the bevel angle, can I expect to feel a detent for 0 degrees?  When I turn my bevel adjustment knob, I’m not feeling any detent as I pass through 0 degrees - and I thought I read somewhere that there is a detent, though I don't see it mentioned in either the owner's manual, or the supplemental manual.  Of course, I can adjust the bevel range selector to go from 0 to 45, and it will stop at 0, but if I have the range selector going from -45 to 45, for example, I don’t feel any detent going through 0 degrees. 

And if there is a detent for 0 degrees on the bevel angle, is this something I can fix myself - or does the saw need a warranty repair?  Purchased Dec '19.

There is no bevel detent at 0 or 45. Would be nice if there was.
