First thing I checked out of the box was the angle lock lever. It works fine and takes very little pressure to secure it.

When you release it the lever travels about 1/8 of a turn and is stopped by the head of a screw (number 25 in the drawing).

To go beyond the screw you would have to exert excessive force because the screw acts as a stop. With this short travel the base operates very smooth.

Thanks for the offer to help-I would call but Woodcraft was kind enough to exchange mine for a different one and obviously it isn't in my possession any longer- thanks anyway
