are securely seated/fastened

or "secure seating"

but seated or seating doesn't quite fit Kabel so I would go with the more generic "fastened".

saddle assembly

Before each use of the machine, check the electric planer saddle assembly (should be something like how firmly is is mounted), cord/cable and plug.....

I don't know anything about planing machines but recommend checking the web on the subject. pretty neat topic.....
