UG stand missing bolts?
« on: September 16, 2011, 10:40 PM »
Hi, well today was the day! I got my new kapex, and the UG stand. In the UG manual it lists as included  4 x screws M6x60, 4 x nuts M6, 1x allen key. These things are not in the packaging. Is this normal? has there been a change since the manual was printed, and there's another way to attach the saw to the stand?

Or do I have to wait till 10am tomorrow and call my dealer?  ???

thx

Are you totally, absolutely, 100% positive that they're not buried in the packaging somewhere? That's happened to me a few times...

I didn't see it last night, but I was pretty tired. I'll wait till day light,  then carefully go over all the packaging again. I did find a tiny allen wrench though, I think it's for adjusting the laser.

Yes, it is for adjusting the laser I think - I don't have mine, 'cos it got thrown out with the packaging. Proves my point.... [embarassed]

ya I know from experience, don't toss out the packaging! and open stuff carefully, and pay attention to what is in the box. I looked again a few minutes ago- nope, not there. I even looked all over the garage floor. darn! oh well, my dealer opens at 10 a.m.

I have to go out that direction today anyhow so it's not a big deal :) I guess I can wait to play with my new saw waaaaaaaa LOL I want to figure it out this weekend, looks like another bid has come in  [thumbs up] so I'd like to use the kapex on that job next week.

It's going to be a bit of a change from my 12" Millwaukee though.

I was thinking, its like when I was a kid and got a new toy. 4 a.m. and I'm out in the garage playing with the saw! in my pj's LOL in my defense I've been saving for quite a while so this is a sweet moment. Of course it really helped to have a good crown moulding job last week.

problem solved! my dealer had found the small bag of bolts on the floor of his store, so I rushed down and picked them up. He then showed me how to adjust the lasers on the kapex.  :)
