On my saw, the sheet metal side was bowed out. When adjusting the screw, the side would snap in and out changing the tilt. I fastened two metal braces vertically along side of the ball fitting to stabilize the side. The adjustment is very hard because there is no counter balance. You are lifting the entire weight of the arbor assembly and the motor. When raising the blade, the motor acts as a counter balance by lowering as the blade is raised.
