Topic tags/keywords: tool miter saw

Just purchased a hitachi mitre saw. Cannot move the clamp lever. I know it loosens clockwise. No amount of manual force can loosen it. Should I just return it?

You could try a strap wrench or wrap a rag around the handle and use pliers to try to loosen it. Your saw should have a 5 year warranty on it so if it breaks, they should send you a new one. Returning it is also an option but you may want to check if they have another one available first.

Have your say...
