need step by step instructions installing handle on sears compound miter saw mod# 137242750.

I went to sears for help and was told to try here as it is out of warranty. I am replacing a broken handle on a 10" compound miter saw mod. 137242750. I can't get the handle back together because the "clamp" figure 108 in the on line diagram seems to get in the way. If you search the model number you will see a picture of the parts I am replacing. numbers 94,105,119, and 124. Any help would be greatly appreciated as sears was useless.

Hi,



Thanks for contacting  Sears

ManageMyLife

. I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with your appliance.



It would seem to me the items 94 and 105 must be split and the lever plus all from  108-115 be laid into  say 105 and assembled into the item 106 and then the handles 94 and 105 assembled and the tension adjusted per the enclosed instructions. 



Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance. We are always here to help.



Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com.

You could have saved me a lot of time and trouble had you told me the picture was incorrect in how they show the so called lever ( item 108 called a clamp under the item number ). It is shown in a horizontal position in relation to item 106 (the carry handle) which is in a fixed position. In reality the lever or clamp (whichever you prefer to call it, I prefer to call it by the name given in the diagram to lessen the chance of misunderstanding) is actually supposed to be in the vertical position which when I finally determined this, made the installation go as it should have. I've wasted a lot of time on the phone with Sears and this site trying to get an answer that could have been resolved with a simple 5 minute phone call. At the bottom of this screen it says to email us.. I did that in hopes of getting a quicker response to this problem either with an email back or a phone call which I requested either in the email I sent but got no response. Why do you bother to have that as an option if no one is going to respond? If they have room on your staff for another expert, sign me up as I have been in the service field for over 30 years doing on site service and resolving problems over the phone, retiring from IBM.
