Default Triton 2000 Workcentre Assembling Correctly?

Hi,
I'm putting together my Workcentre I don't think we have put the side guard in properly. The screws seem too long to fit, in the way that we have done it.
I've put some photos on Photobucket, showing how far we've got. We had put the Triton saw in situ but removed it to fit the saw height winder attachment.
If you use the zoom feature you can see clearly how the bolts on the side guard don't seem to be right?

In picture http://i202.photobucket.com/albums/a...e/DSCF0002.jpg isn't the top of the side guard meant to be level with the top chassis bar?
Have we put the base wheels at the correct end?
Thanx for any help on this,
Peter.

Peter, perhaps these shots will be of assistance. Yell out if more photos are required.

Thanks Harry,
I think the design of the sliding carraige might be different to the one I have, see attached photo, not able to upload, so put picture on Photobucket see http://i807.photobucket.com/albums/y...nSideGuard.jpg

I thought the saw guard was attached to the base plate of the saw. Looking at your photos, seems to be attached to sliding carraige. I have a Triton 235mm TA235CSL. After shopping around a bit in UK. I got it for 149.99 inc vat inc delivery. Smart top quality bit of kit.
Regards,
Peter.

Peter, my year 2000 handbook appears to be identical to yours. Perhaps this new shot will be of some help. I told a storey on this forum some time ago regarding the problems that I had assembling the rise/fall assembly. I struggled for quite some time to understand the instructions without success, fortunately my young granddaughter was watching me and said something like "granddad, do you think they mean.........."
with her nimble minded interpretation, the job was completed very quickly. When I sent in the warranty card I included a note saying something like "find a non-technical person with good writing skills and get him/her to assemble this unit from you current instructions and then get that person to re-write them!" Obviously they ignored my advice!

Hi Harry,
We found quite a lot of the paper instructions for the assembly of the Workcentre, very unclear. Some videos were a lot more help. When I started on putting the Workcentre together, I found myself sitting there for quite a while, until the penny dropped, as how to add another part, onto the assembly. Even so, great piece of equipment! Your most recent uploads, the 2nd picture, makes sense, also sussed, can shorten the width of the guard so bolts fit into the plastic mounting brackets. Will look at video etc on Monday and let you know how I get on.
Cheers very much mate.
Pete.

Hi Harry,
Sorted the sideguard out. What it was, attached to those red tube thingys but on the outer face, should have been the insides faces, very simple really. Perfect now will upload photo.
Played the Triton video that also covers lining, squaring up the saw itself. Bit too much for me, want to do it 100% correctly. Will wait until I see my brother-in-law perhaps Wednesday lives up the road a couple of miles.
Pete.

In all seriousness Bob, every year when I visit the wood-show I drool over and am tempted to buy one of the JET table saws then I pull myself together and realise that my Triton, that I took care in setting-up in 2000 and haven't needed to re-adjust since, does a perfect job. Whatever the fence is set to is the size that exits the blade. What more can anyone ask for? I hope this post excites Gaia and makes him realise that his new Triton is NOT a toy.
