WAR.I.G
l
Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding,
drilling and other construction
activities
contains
chemicals
known to the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects
or other reproductive
harm. Some examples of these chemicals
are:
® Lead from lead-based
paints,
® Crystalline
silica from bricks, cement and other masonry
products, and
® Arsenic and chromium
from chemically
treated lumber.
Your risk from these exposures
varies, depending
on how often you do this type of work.
To reduce your exposure
to these chemicals:
work in a well ventilated
area, and work
with approved
safety equipment,
such as those dust masks that are specially
designed
to
filter out microscopic
particles.
Avoid prolonged contact with dust from power sanding,
sawing, grinding,
drilling, and other construction
activities.
Wear protective clothing
and
wash exposed areas with soap and water. Allowing
dust to get into your mouth, eyes, or
lay on the skin may promote absorption
of harmful
chemicals.

POWER SUPPLY AND MOTOR
SPECiFiCATiONS
The AC motor used in this saw is
a universal, nonreversible type.
See "MOTOR" in the "PRODUCT
SPECIFICATIONS" section on page 3.
WARNING
l
To avoid electrical hazards, fire
hazards, or damage to the tool, use
proper circuit protection. Your saw
is wired at the factory for 120 V
operation. Connect to a 120 V,
15 A circuit and use a 15 A time
delay fuse or circuit breaker, To
avoid shock or fire, if power cord is
worn or cut, or damaged in any way,
have it replaced immediately.
ELECTRICAL
REQUIREMENTS
=
DOUBLE INSULATEDr_
The power tool is double insulated to
provide a double thickness of insulation
between you and tool's electrical
system. All exposed metal parts are
isolated from the internal metal motor
components with protecting insulation.
Replacement parts - When servicing
use only identical replacement parts.
Polarized plugs - This saw has a plug
that looks like the one shown below:
To reduce the risk of electrical shock,
this saw has a polarized plug (one
blade is wider than the other). This plug
will fit in a polarized outlet only one
way. If the plug does not fit fully in the
outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does
not fit, contact a qualified electrician to
install the proper outlet. Do not change
the plug in any way.
WARNING}
Double insulation does not take the
place of normal safety precautions
when operating this tool.
To avoid electrocution:
1. Use only identical replacement
parts when servicing a tool with
double insulation. Servicing
should be performed by a
qualified technician.
2. Do not use power tools in wet or
damp locations or expose them
to rain or snow.
MOTOR SAFETY PROTECTION
IMPORTANT:
To avoid motor damage, the motor
should be blown out or vacuumed
frequently to keep sawdust from
interfering with the motor ventilation.
1. CONNECT this sawto a 120 V, 15A
circuit with a 15 A time-delay fuse or
circuit breaker. Using the wrong size
fuse can damage the motor.
2. If the motor won't start, release the
trigger switch immediately. UNPLUG
THE SAW. Check the saw blade to
make sure it turns freely. If the blade
is free, try to start the saw again. If
the motor still does not start, refer to
the TROUBLESHOOTING
GUIDE.
3. If the tool suddenly stalls while
cutting wood, release the trigger
switch, unplug the tool, and free the
blade from the wood. The saw may
now be started and the cut finished.
4. FUSES may "blow" or circuit
breakers may trip frequently if:
a. MOTOR is overloaded overloading can occur if you feed
too rapidly or make too many
start/stops in a short time.
b. LINE VOLTAGE is more than
10% above or below the
nameplate voltage rating. For
heavy loads, the voltage at
motor terminals must equal the
voltage specified on the nameplate.
c. IMPROPER or dull saw blades
are used.
5. Most motor troubles may be traced
to loose or incorrect connections,
overload, low voltage or inadequate
power supply wiring. Always check
the connections, the load and
supply circuit if the motor doesn't
run well. Check minimum gauge for
the length of cord you are using on
the chart below.
GUIDELINES
FOR EXTENSION
CORDS
Use a proper extension cord. Make
sure your extension cord is in good
condition. When using an extension
cord, be sure to use one heavy enough
to carry the current your product will
draw. An undersized cord will cause a
drop in line voltage, resulting in loss
of power and cause overheating. The
table below shows the correct size
to use depending on cord length and
nameplate ampere rating. If in doubt,
use the next heavier gauge. The
smaller the gauge number, the heavier
the cord.
Be sure your extension cord is
properly wired and in good condition.
Always replace a damaged extension
cord or have it repaired by a qualified
person before using it. Protect your
extension cords from sharp objects,
excessive heat and damp or wet areas.
Use a separate electrical circuit for
your tools. This circuit must not be less
than a #12 wire with a 20 Atime-lag
fuse or a #14 wire with a 15 A time-lag
fuse. NOTE: When using an extension
cord on a circuit with a # 14 wire, the
extension cord must not exceed 25 feet
in length. Before connecting the tool to
the power line, make sure the switch
is in the OFF position and the electric
current is rated the same as the current
stamped on the motor nameplate,
running at a lower voltage will damage
the motor.

Carbide is a very hard but brittle
material. Care should be taken while
mounting, using, and storing carbide
tipped blades to prevent accidental
damage. Slight shocks, such as
striking the tip while handling,
can
seriously
damage the blade. Foreign
objects in the workpiece,
such as
wire or nails, can also cause tips
to crack or break off. Before using,
always visually examine the blade
and tips for bent blade, cracks,
breakage, missing or loose tips, or
other damage. Do not use if damage
is suspected.
Failure to heed safety
instructions and warnings
can
result in serious bodily injury.
BLADE
iNFORMATION
o Always use a crosscut blade that is
designed for cutting across the wood
grain. NEVER use Rip, Combination,
Plywood, Dado or Abrasive type saw
blades at any time
o Always use a 10 in. diameter blade with
either a 5/8" arbor hole, speed rating
must be at least 4800 RPM.
o Read and understand all instructions
provided with each blade before using
on this miter saw.
There are two main materials used for
saw blades; high-speed steel (HSS) and
carbide tipped (TCT). While the HSS
blades are generally less expensive
than carbide tipped, TCT blades wilt
stay sharper longer than HSS. As a
general rule the more teeth per inch (TPI)
the smoother the cut. Please read the
information provided on the blade for
more details for their use.
General Purpose Wood Cutting: 24 - 40 TPI
Fine Woodworking Cutting: 60 - 80 TPI
Non-ferrous Metal Cutting:
Use only special blades designed for
cutting this type of material.
Plastic Cutting:
Use only special blades designed for
cutting plastic.
NOTE: When cutting non-ferrous or
plastic, be sure to clean up completely
after each use. Take special care with
metal shavings after each cut, these can
cause damage to the table top. ALWAYS
WEAR EYE PROTECTION.

TERMS
ARBOR - The shaft on which a blade
is mounted.
BEVEL CUT - An angle cut made
through the face of the workpiece.
COMPOUND CUT- An angled cut
to both the edge and face of a board,
most common use is with crown
molding.
CROSS CUT - A cut which runs across
the board perpendicular to the grain.
FREEHAND - Performing a cut without
using a fence (guide), hold down or
other proper device to prevent the
workpiece from twisting during the
cutting operation.
HEEL - Misalignment of the blade.
KERF - The width of a saw cut,
determined by the thickness and set of
the blade.
KICKBACKsudden and unintended
movement of the tool or workpiece. It is
typically caused by binding or pinching
of the workpiece.
MITER CUT - A miter is a type of joint
where the two parts to be joined are cut
at an angle, and typically the finished
joint forms a 90-degree angle. Also
commonly spelled "mitre".
REVOLUTIONS PER MINUTE (RPM)
- The number of turns completed by a
spinning object in one minute.
SAW BLADE PATH - The area of the
workpiece or table top directly in line
with the travel of the blade or the part
of the workpiece which will be cut.
SET - The distance between two saw
blade tips, bent outward in opposite
directions to each other. The further
apart the tips are, the greater the set.
THIN-KERF BLADE - Thinner than
normal blades, remove less material,
smaller kerfs (between 0.065 in. and
0.070 in.). Blade thinness also may
increase the heat generated while
cutting.
WORKPIECE - The wood being
cut. The surfaces of a workpiece are
commonly referred to as faces, ends
and edges.

AUXiLiARY WOOD FENCE (FIG. PP)
When making multiple or repetitive cuts
that result in cut-off pieces of one inch
or less, it is possible for the saw blade
to catch the cut-off piece and throw
it out of the saw or into the blade

damage or injury. To minimize this, an

CUTTING BASE MOLDING (FIG. QQ)
Base moldings and many other
moldings can be cut on a compound
miter saw. The setup of the saw
depends on molding characteristics
and application, as shown. Perform
practice cuts on scrap material to
achieve best results:
1. Always make sure moldings rest
firmly against fence and table. Use
hold-down, crown molding vice
or C=clamps, whenever possible,
and place tape on the area being
clamped to avoid marks.
2. Reduce splintering by taping the cut
area prior to making the cut. Mark
the cut line directly on the tape.
3. Splintering typically happens due to
an incorrect blade application and
thinness of the material.

could cause difficulty in the movement
of the worktable when setting up
a miter cut. Frequently blow out or
vacuum up the sawdust.
If need to remove small pieces of
material from the table cavity, see the
section on Removing and Installing the
Table Insert on page 21.
To empty the dust bag, remove the
sawdust bag from the dust port. Open
the zipper on the sawdust bag and
empty out the sawdust inside. Close
the zipper and reinstall the dust bag on
the dust port as described on page 18.
