The outriggers do work well, don;t forget the locking caps that go on top , they will unscrew and loosen from vibration,  :) :)

I replaced the Outriggers in front of and behind the axle on the operator's side.  These always seem to be the ones that sink in while I am sawing.  They are also the hardest to reach.  Today I ordered the one just behind the hitch.

My 'demo' mill came with 4 FAO's on the rail, and the standard outriggers (SO's) on the loading arm side.  I initially thought that I might spring for two more FAO's, but with some experience I found that there's really no need.  I hardly ever have to use the silver adjustment rod on the SO's.

Generally, I'll release the SO on an end, and then use the near rail end FAO to lift the end enough to get the SO to click into the next hole.  Then I'll put the closer mid-rail FAO down and get it to take its share of the weight. 

To put this another way, I adjust the FAO's to the position of the SO's, and never really adjust the SO's at all.

I'm sure you'll work out your own system shortly.

One other thing I did was to put a 1 1/4" socket in my tool box so I wouldn't be in a pickle if that nice crank handle ever went missing.  That crank handle has taken a couple of long trips sitting on top of my hitch-end FAO  :)

I saw right quickly that I needed a socket or ratchet end wrench.  I went by Sears today and they didn't have a 1¼" socket.  I'm going to the parts house tomorrow.

don;t forget the locking caps that go on top , they will unscrew and loosen from vibration

I'll get the instructions out again.  I missed that part about a locking cap.   :-\
