Flip up the red lever on the right hand side behind the guide. Then spin the saw to the correct setting and tighten the lever to lock in place.

A bevel cut? Just loosen the big red knob on the back of the saw and tilt the blade. This saw only tilts to the left.

what we are trying to do is this,
Mark and cut the side casings to length with the miter saw set to 45 degrees.
Miter-cut the head casing to 45 degrees,
just need to cut the window casing so they fit together,
on the video he can tilt his cutting angle on the table,
what i was trying to do oh my miter saw,
a link to the video,
Thanks,Chris

also here is a link to another miter saw i like,
was thinking about trading mine back to sears for this one,
i notice it has a 9 positive miter table stops and little lever in front,
that looks alot easier to move to different degree cuts,
here is a link,Thanks,Chris

You're talking about a compound miter cut, which tilts the blade to the table on a vertical plane. You do not need a compound cut for casing. Simply set the table to 45 degrees and set your casing flat to the table and cut it. Casing should not be cut vertical to the fence unless you have a compound miter saw.

Actually, for basic trim work, you can do most everything with a basic miter saw. I never use mine except to back-cut miters a degree to ensure a tight fit.

just got the table to turn to a 45 degree angle,
i have to lock the miter saw down,
then push down and turn,
i guess every miter saw is a little different,
Thanks,Chris
