Porter Cable 557
 
I have just purchased a PC 557, Type 3, 7.5 Amps on EBay for $69 plus $25 shipping. It works fine with one exception. When I install the two inch blade and following the user manual set the depth to 'FF', and the adjust the safEty lever, it locks the slide mechanism and the blade can not extend to cut the wood. Any suggestion greatly appreciated

Consider contacting Porter Cable service dept. directly, and explain your issues. Have heard of some of those ebay items being "refurbished" and sold for new. Hope that isn't yours. Be safe.
