    BT3100 SMT won't slide

    I started working with a BT3100 with a SMT. I can't the SMT to slide. The miter slide lock is not engaged, so it's not that.
    Must be something obvious I'm missing. Any ideas on what I can do to get it moving?

    1. . . Edited: Sorry, I didn't read your post correctly before writing my first response, which was the front black vertical slide lock.
    2. A bolt, screw or pencil has fallen into the slot and jammed it.

      Thanks Hank. Worked at it a little more. If I give it a really good bump, it will come loose. Just got the saw. So will have to work at it some m

        SMT has adjustment to make it slide smooth but without too much play. Eccentric plastic pieces on which SMT slides. Probably too tight now, so it jams.

            If your only tool is a hammer, you tend to treat all problems as if they were nails.

              Loring, it worked for me both yesterday and now.

              However, the link is only if you click within "ticle" spelling of "article" in that short sentence. The "ticle" is both blue and underlined in my browser - showing it is linked to something, . . . the article that Mark posted back in '09 on the SMT.
