Hitachi Miter saw C10FCE2 *URGENT
Okay guys...kind of a dumb the heck do you open the blade to make it go up and down so that you can start cutting? Thank you so much

At the back of the saw on the left side there's a steel pin. Just pull it out to unlock it.

I looked at the back of the saw and can not find any pin that I could pull I missing something?
Does it have to be plugged in to do so?
Is the pin "T" shaped?

Should just be a straight rod.
It does not need to be plugged in to get it to reliese.

here are a couple pictures from the back...would it be possible to point it out for me?

Pictures are to dark to see.
The pins somewhere where the arm pivits at the back of the saw on one of the two sides.

The bottom picture, left side where the saw pivots up and down, there is a round pen kinda silver color, just push down on the handle of the saw slightly and pull the pen at the same time, it should come open. You may have to pull the pen and work the handle up and down to get it out.

The pen will be on the left side if you are standing facing the saw from the back.
