Ken, your's looks like the picture that Pete Bradley posted to my note on SMC. He got the picture off the MM website. I seem to remember some having to make this adjustment on their MM16s. Maybe it is the new ones like Steve has. Obviously a change was made in how they made these pieces for the saws. Either they missed the cut and didn't catch it, or just totally messed up on designing the thing, I don't know. But my modification works well, doesn't affect the integrity of the piece, or it's ability to do it's job safely. My bet is this is what MM would say to do. Thanks for the note!! Jim.
ps. You know, going back and looking at my before picture, you can see that it was cut out at the factory, they just didn't go far enough forward for a small blade. I remember it working fine with the 3/4" blade when I had it on once upon a time. So it's just a problem they didn't forsee with a small blade.
