The smaller silver handle on the front is the lock. The handle on the side rotates to change the blade angle.

The handle under the table is the lock for the tilt. And the wheel on the right side is for the angle. Loosen the handle and turn the wheel for tilting the blade.

There is an aluminum lever in the front, near the center, up under the table that unlocks the blade.  The crank on the right side of the saw changes the angle.  Don't forget to relock the blade after setting the angle.

I got this one!. Ha what you do is pull the knob that adjusts the blade height.  (push or pull, sorry I don;t remember which direction, but it will pull out or slide in, engaging the gears for the blade angled adjustment.)

Recap:  Pull the knob then turn to adjust the angle, push the knob in then turn to adjust the height

The way to get your angles is on the right hand side the center handle is for raising and lowering your blade.
