Slide Bar: When unlocked, the saw arm will glide forward and backward the length of the slide bar for cutting various workpiece widths.

Sliding Fence: The sliding fence provided with this saw help hold the work piece securely when making most cuts. The sliding feature allows for clearance of the saw blade when making bevel or compound cuts. Some cuts may require that the sliding fence be removed completely to avoid interference between the fence and the blade.
