I have a Sears 10" radial arm saw that I haven't used in several years. I am unable to set it up to the in-rip position. I pull the swivel lock, but that still does not allow the motor/blade assembly to pivot either direction. It remains locked in the cross-cut position. Am I missing a step? I would appreciate any ideas.

What model # do you have?

If it's like mine, you pull up and hold the knob (1) and pull the lever forward (2)

You can't turn it because there are higher powers that don't want you to. They are saying it's an extremely dangerous procedure to rip on a RAS. So, heed their advice...I would.
