Sliding lock knob problem
I can't get the sliding lock knob to release so that the saw slides in and out. There's a spring in the knob, but I can't tell when it's locked and when it's loose, and the manual doesn't say. Should the knob be turned up? Down?

Old question long solved, but for anyone new, the lock is just a bolt. When you turn the lever you should see the screw on the end and the bolt turn. If it's too tight for the lever, pull the plastic lever out until you see the nut on the bolt, use a wrench and turn it counter-clockwise. It's threaded like a regular bolt.
