SAFETY
WARNING:
When using electric tools, always follow basic safety precautions to reduce
the risk of fire, electric shock, and personal injury.
READ AND SAVE ALL INSTRUCTIONS FOR FUTURE USE. Before use, be sure everyone using this tool reads
and understands this manual as well as any labels packaged with or attached to the tool.
1. KNOW YOUR POWER TOOL. Read this manual carefully to learn your power tool’s applications and
limitations as well as potential hazards associated with this type of tool.
2. DO NOT ALLOW UNQUALIFIED PEOPLE TO OPERATE the tool.
3. AVOID DANGEROUS ENVIRONMENTS. Do not use your power tool in rain, damp or wet locations, or in the
presence of explosive atmospheres (gaseous fumes, dust, or flammable materials). Remove materials or
debris that may be ignited by sparks.
4. KEEP WORK AREA CLEAN AND WELL LIT. Cluttered, dark work areas invite accidents. Provide at least
200 watts of lighting at the front work area of the tool. Eliminate all shadows that could interfere with clear
viewing of the work area.
5. DRESS PROPERLY. Do not wear loose-fitting clothing or jewelry. Wear a protective hair covering to contain
long hair, as it may be caught in moving parts. When working outdoors, wear rubber gloves and insulated,
nonskid footwear. Keep hands and gloves away from moving parts.
6. USE SAFETY EQUIPMENT. Everyone in the work area should wear safety goggles or glasses with side
shields that comply with current safety standards. Wear hearing protection during extended use and a dust
mask for dusty operations. Hard hats, face shields, safety shoes, etc. should be used when specified or
necessary. Keep a fire extinguisher nearby.
7. KEEP BYSTANDERS AWAY. Keep children and bystanders at a safe distance from the work area to avoid
distracting the operator and contacting the tool or extension cord.
8. MAKE THE WORKSHOP CHILD PROOF with padlocks, master switches, etc.
9. NEVER LEAVE THE TOOL RUNNING UNATTENDED. Turn the power off. Do not leave the tool until it
comes to a complete stop.
10. PROTECT OTHERS IN THE WORK AREA from debris such as chips and sparks. Provide barriers or shields
as needed.
11. SECURE THE WORK. Use a clamp, vise, or other practical means to hold your work securely, freeing both
hands to control the tool.
12. USE THE RIGHT TOOL. Do not use a tool or attachment to do a job for which it is not recommended. For
example, do not use a circular saw to cut tree limbs or logs. Do not alter the tool, remove guards, or operate
the saw when removed from the carriage and frame.
13. USE PROPER ACCESSORIES. Using non-recommended accessories may be hazardous. Be sure
accessories are properly installed and maintained. Do not defeat a guard or other safety device when
installing an accessory or attachment.
14. CHECK FOR DAMAGED PARTS. Inspect guards and other parts before use. Check for misalignment,
binding of moving parts, improper mounting, broken parts, and any other conditions that may affect operation.
If abnormal noise or vibration occurs, turn the tool off immediately and have the problem corrected before
further use. Do not use a damaged tool. Tag damaged tools “DO NOT USE” until repaired. Repair or replace
a damaged guard or other part. For all repairs, insist on identical replacement parts.
15. REMOVE ALL ADJUSTING WRENCHES AND TOOLS from the tool before turning it on. Make this a habit.
16. GROUND YOUR TOOL. See “Electrical Safety,” page 7.
4
17. AVOID ACCIDENTAL STARTING. Be sure your tool is turned off before plugging it in. Do not use the tool if
the power switch does not turn it on and off. Observe correct lockout/tag out procedures when performing
maintenance on the tool.
18. DO NOT FORCE THE TOOL. Your tool will perform best at the rate for which it was designed. Excessive
force only causes operator fatigue, increased wear, increased risk of binding or sudden breakage, and
reduced control.
19. KEEP HANDS AWAY FROM ALL CUTTING EDGES AND MOVING PARTS.
20. DO NOT ABUSE THE CORD. Never unplug the cord by yanking it from the outlet. Pull the plug rather than
the cord to reduce the risk of damage. Keep the cord away from heat, oil, sharp objects, cutting edges, and
moving parts.
21. DO NOT OVERREACH. MAINTAIN CONTROL. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. Maintain a
firm grip.
22. STAY ALERT. Watch what you are doing, and use common sense. Do not use a tool when you are tired,
distracted, or under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or any medication causing decreased control.
23. UNPLUG THE TOOL when it is not in use, before changing items such as blades, and before performing
recommended maintenance. Observe appropriate lockout/tag out procedures.
24. MAINTAIN TOOLS CAREFULLY. Keep handles dry, clean, and free from oil and grease. Keep cutting edges
sharp and clean. Follow instructions for lubricating and changing accessories. Periodically inspect tool cords
and extension cords for damage. Have damaged parts repaired or replaced.
25. MAINTAIN LABELS AND NAMEPLATES. These carry important information.
contact Safety Speed for a free replacement.
If unreadable or missing,
26. AVOID KICKBACK. Kickback is a violent reaction to a pinched or binding saw blade. It throws the saw
upward when crosscutting and throws the work piece out when ripping. Firm control, proper support of the
work piece, and concentration on the job are essential to reduce the risk of injury from kickback:
a. KEEP SAW BLADE CLEAN AND SHARP. A dull or improperly sharpened blade produces a narrow kerf
and is likely to be pinched by the work piece. Any blade with a small set, even though sharp, may be
likely to kick back. A dull blade encourages you to force the saw, causing reduced control and blade
binding. The excessive friction generated can cause the blade to warp or bind. Use only blades that are
recommended for use with your tool. Do not use blades with mounting holes that are not the correct size
or shape. Never use defective or incorrect blade washers or bolts. Be sure the blade bolt is tight. Select
the proper blade for the application. Blade speed specifications must be at least as high as the
nameplate RPM.
b. DO NOT FORCE THE TOOL. Let the saw do the work. A saw is more easily controlled and will do a
better job when used in the manner for which it was designed.
c. SECURE WORK PROPERLY. If a piece is supported on both sides of the cut in such a way that it allows
the material to bow and pinch the blade, it may produce kickback. Do not cut pieces smaller than the
saw carriage. Support large panels properly.
d. IF THE BLADE BINDS, the saw or work piece may kick back. Keep hands, body, and bystanders out of
the path of the blade and material.
e. STAY ALERT. Watch what you are doing and use common sense. Do not allow yourself to be
distracted. Do not operate the tool when you are tired or under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Hold the
tool and material firmly and exercise control at all times. Position yourself and co-workers out of the
kickback path. Repetitive cuts that lull you into careless movements can also cause kickback. A brief
“stretch” may be all that is necessary to avoid a problem.
f. RESTARTING IN MID-CUT. If the saw is stopped in mid-cut, allow the blade to stop. Then back up the
saw (if crosscutting) or the board (if rip cutting) before restarting.
g. IF THE BLADE STALLS, DO NOT TURN THE SWITCH ON AND OFF. A dull blade or excess pressure
may cause stalling. Release the switch immediately if the blade binds or the saw stalls, and remove the
saw from the cut.
h. AVOID CUTTING NAILS OR OTHER FASTENERS. Inspect for and remove all metal fasteners before
cutting.
5
i. SUPPORT THIN MATERIAL. Large sheets such as paneling, Formica, etc., tend to warp or sag and
must be well supported over their entire length to avoid pinching the blade.
27. HANDLE THE COUNTERBALANCE WITH CARE. The counterbalance cable is under tension. Always attach
the cable to the saw carriage before removing the cable clip. Do not pull on the cable by hand or attempt to
disassemble or repair the counterbalance. Replacement counterbalances can be purchased directly from
Safety Speed.
28. DO NOT USE PUSH STICKS.
29. CROSSCUTTING (VERTICAL CUTTING) MUST ALWAYS BE DONE FROM THE TOP DOWN. Raise the
saw carriage to the uppermost position on the guides and lock it into position with the carriage lock whenever
the tool is not in use. See “Operating Procedure: Crosscutting”, for more information.
30. RIPPING (HORIZONTAL CUTTING) MUST ALWAYS BE DONE WITH THE DIRECTION OF THE ARROW.
Raise the saw carriage to the top of the guides and lock it into position with the carriage lock whenever the tool
is not in use. See “Operating Procedure: Rip cutting”, for more information.
31. ALWAYS WAIT FOR THE BLADE TO STOP COMPLETELY BEFORE CHANGING POSITIONS. Unplug the
tool before transporting or moving it.
32. DO NOT PLACE YOUR HANDS ON OR UNDER THE SAW CARRIAGE OR IN THE PATH OF THE BLADE.
Do not try to retrieve a piece of cut material while the blade is rotating. This symbol is to remind you:
33. DO NOT DEFEAT THE GUARDS OR OPERATE THE TOOL WITHOUT THE GUARDS IN PLACE. Do not
remove the saw motor from the carriage.
34. NEVER STAND ON THE TOOL. Serious injury could occur if the tool is tipped or if you unintentionally contact
the cutting tool.
35. DIRECTION OF FEED. Always feed work into the blade or cutter against the direction of the rotation of the
blade or cutter.
36. HOME CENTERS AND COMMERCIAL LOCATIONS should check with their local electrical contractor to be
sure the proper amount of electrical power (volts/amps) will be available for this machine during all operating
hours and conditions. Be aware of any special electrical safety requirements for this machine (examples: key
lock offs, timers, coded security, touch pads, or time lockouts) required by local codes.
37. DISCONNECT AND LOCK THE POWER OFF before changing saw blades or making any adjustments.
38. BEFORE CONNECTING THE SAW MOTOR TO THE POWER SUPPLY BE SURE THE SAW MOTOR
SWITCH IS IN THE OFF POSITION.
39. KEEP THE CARRIAGE LOCK SECURELY TIGHTENED when the machine is not in use.
40. REFER TO PAGE 42 FOR WARNING LABEL IDENTIFICATION.
Please Read Before Operating the Saw
WARNING! Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities
contains chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these
chemicals are:
• Lead from lead-based paint
• Crystalline silica from bricks and 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 specifically designed to filter out microscopic particles.

Electrical Safety
WARNING:
Improperly connecting the grounding wire can result in the risk of electric
shock. Check with a qualified electrician if you are not sure that the outlet is
properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the tool. Never
remove the grounding prong from the plug. Do not use the tool if the cord or
plug is damaged. If damaged, have it repaired by a qualified electrician
before use. If the plug will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by
a qualified electrician.
Some of our machines are equipped with 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 a polarized outlet. Do not change the plug in any
way. Double insulation eliminates the need for the three wire grounded power supply system mentioned above.
Do not expose your tool to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a power tool will increase the risk of
electric shock.
The plug must be connected to a properly grounded outlet (see Figure 1). If the tool should electrically
malfunction or break down, grounding provides a low-resistance path to carry electricity away from you, reducing
the risk of electric shock.
Figure 1: Grounded Plug and Outlet
The grounding prong on the plug is connected through the green wire inside the cord to the grounding system in
the tool. The green wire in the cord must be the only wire connected to the tool’s grounding system and must
never be attached to an electrically “live” terminal.
Your tool must be plugged into an appropriate outlet, properly installed and grounded in accordance with all codes
and ordinances. The plug and outlet should look like those in Figure 1.
Figure 2 illustrates a temporary adapter available for connecting grounded plugs (Figure 1) to two-prong outlets.
The green rigid ear or lug extending from the adapter must be connected to a permanent ground such as a
properly grounded outlet box or receptacle. Simply remove the center screw from the outlet, insert the adapter
and reattach the screw through the green grounding ear to the outlet. If in doubt of proper grounding, call a
qualified electrician. A temporary adapter should only be used until a qualified electrician can install a properly
grounded outlet. The Canadian Electrical Code prohibits the use of temporary adapters.
Figure 2: Temporary Grounding Adapter

Extension Cords
Grounded tools require a three-wire extension cord. As the distance from the supply outlet increases, you must
use a heavier-gauge extension cord. Using extension cords with inadequately sized wire causes a serious drop in
voltage, resulting in loss of power and possible tool damage. Refer to Table I below to determine the required
minimum wire size.

* based on limiting the line voltage drop to 5V at 150% of the rated amperes.
The smaller the gauge number of the wire, the greater the capacity of the cord. For example, a 14-gauge cord
can carry a higher current than a 16-gauge cord. When using more than one extension cord to make up the total
length, be sure each cord contains at least the minimum wire size required. If you are using one extension cord
for more than one tool, add their nameplate amperes and use the sum to determine the required minimum wire
size.
Guidelines for Using Extension Cords
If you are using an extension cord outdoors, be sure it is marked with the suffix “W-A” (“W” in Canada) to indicate
that it is acceptable for outdoor use.
Be sure your extension cord is properly wired and in good electrical condition.

and shields as needed.
NOTE: The average noise level of SSC saws and routers is less than 80 dB.
Unpacking
1. Remove all the plastic sheeting, protective cardboard, and wood crating.
2. One or more boxes of parts are attached to the frame. The cord keeper is taped to the carriage. Remove
these items for later installation.
Machine Assembly
Installing the Counterbalance (if required-C4, C5, H-series, and SR5)
WARNING:
To reduce the risk of injury or damage to components, do not attempt to
disassemble or repair the counterbalance. Do not pull on the counterbalance
cable. The cable is under strong spring force: the unit must be properly
assembled before you remove the cable clip.
9
A counterbalance is used on Models C4, C5, H-Series, and SR5, to offset the weight of the carriage and saw or
router. Other models use a counterweight system that is factory installed.
The counterbalance is shipped with the necessary hardware attached, and is in the box marked “Saw Motor.”
Remove the two 1/4-20 x 1/2” carriage bolts, nuts, and washers from the counterbalance. Do not remove the bolt
and nut that are on the counterbalance cable.
1. Pull the end of the cable from the inside of the counterbalance. Set the counterbalance on top of the tool
frame, slightly off-center to either the left or right, so that the cable is aligned vertically with an oval hole near
the top of the carriage. See Figure 3. Some model tools have two oval holes in the carriage, one off-center
each way; other models have only a single hole. (Do not mount the counter balance in the center holes)
2. Secure the counterbalance to the top of the tool frame, using the two attached carriage bolts, washers, and
nuts. Tighten the nuts securely.
Figure 3: Installing the Counterbalance
3. Hold the carriage securely while you loosen the red carriage lock (Figure 13 through Figure 18). Raise the
carriage until the hole in the top of the carriage aligns with the eye in the end of the counterbalance cable,
making sure the cable is behind the carriage. Then lock the carriage rip lock.
4. Hold the cable end behind the carriage. Remove the carriage bolt and nut, and use them to attach the end of
the counterbalance cable end to the oval hole in the carriage. Tighten securely.
5. Bend the cable clip tabs forward by hand, so they look like the ones in Figure 4.
Figure 4: Attaching the Counterbalance Cable
6. Loosen the carriage lock and lower the carriage until the cable clip is fully exposed, then lock the carriage rip
lock. Remove the cable clip from the counterbalance cable and save it for future use (e.g., if you remove the
counterbalance in the future, you will need the cable clip to support the tension in the counterbalance).
Standing Up the Tool
With the help of an assistant, stand up the tool and position it in its intended operating location:
• If the tool is to be mounted to the floor, or to a wall or post, it must be attached securely to avoid injury from
tipping.
10
• If you have purchased the optional Frame Stand, install it now. Follow the mounting instructions packed with
the Stand (and repeated at the end of this manual). The Stand will correctly support the Tool under normal
operating conditions.
WARNING: A freestanding saw must be located away from areas where it could be
accidentally tipped over.
Mounting the Motor on the Carriage (Saws)
Models C4, C5, H4, H5, H6
The saw motor is inside the box marked “Saw Motor”. It is shipped with two washers, three nuts, and one bolt
installed. Remove these items to mount the saw to the turntable on the carriage.
Figure 5: Mounting the Saw Motor (Models C4, C5, H4, H5, H6)
1. Loosen the carriage rip lock and lower the carriage to a comfortable working height. Then tighten the carriage
rip lock securely.
2. Mount the motor to the carriage by inserting the studs (6) on the saw motor through the holes in the turntable
(5). See Figure 5. Install the washers and nuts (7), and hand-tighten only.
3. The bracket (8) that extends from the saw handle has a single hole. Place the spacer (9) between the bracket
on the base and the bracket on the saw handle. Align that hole with the hole in the turntable as shown in
Figure 5, and insert the bolt (10). Install the nut, and hand-tighten only.
4. Make sure the screw (11) on the saw motor plate is flush against the turntable bracket as shown, to ensure
the saw is square. This screw (11) is factory-set and does not require adjustment when the tool is being
installed.
5. Tighten the two bottom nuts first (7), and the top nut (10) last.
Models 6400, 6800
The Models 6400 and 6800 are shipped with the saw motor already mounted.
Models 7400, 7400XL
The Models 7400 and 7400XL are shipped with the saw motor already mounted.
11
Mounting the Router Platform and Saw Platform on the Carriage (Combination Machines)
Models SR5 and SR5U
1. Set the bottom of the router or saw platform behind the two clips at the bottom of the carriage.
2. Pivot the top of the platform into the carriage so its hole slips over the locating pin.
3. Attach the top of the platform to the carriage with two red thumbscrews.
Models 3400 and TR2
Remove the router motor from the box and screw it into the factory mounted router base on the lifting platform.
Figure 6: Mounting the Router and Platform (Model 3400 shown)
Installing a Blade (C&H Series Saws and SR5 Saw/Router)
1. Select the correct blade for your needs. Refer to “Selecting a Blade”.
IMPORTANT: Because the saw blade must be carefully matched to the materials being cut, Safety Speed
does not supply a blade as standard equipment on the saw. Improper blade selection can result in reduced
tool life, inaccurate and poor quality cuts, and safety risks. Consult with your machinery dealer, or with our
customer service department (800-772-2327) to determine the best blade for your cutting needs.
2. Tighten your rip lock on your carriage. While holding the in the spindle lock (16)(located on the bottom side of
your motor) remove the blade bolt (12)(Figure 7) from the saw motor spindle by turning it
counterclockwise. Remove the outer blade flange (13), but leave the inner blade flange (14) on the spindle.
Figure 7: Installing a Saw Blade (C&H Series Shown)
3. Install the blade with the arrow pointing counterclockwise as shown (15).
4. Reinstall the outer blade flange (13) and hand-tighten the arbor bolt (12). To keep the spindle from turning
while you tighten the bolt hold in the spindle lock button (16).
Use the special set of wrenches provided with the tool to securely tighten the bolt clockwise.
12
5. Loosen the carriage lock and allow the saw carriage to return to the top of the guides.
WARNING:
To reduce the risk of injury, do not operate the tool without the blade guard
in place.
Installing the Blade Guard (Saws)
NOTE: The Models 7400 and 7400XL do not have a separate blade guard.
The blade guard (Figure 8 or Figure 9) is in the box marked “Saw Motor.” Always install the blade guard before
operating the saw. The guard is shipped with two or three red torque knobs (22) installed, depending on the
model. Remove the knobs to install the guard. Be sure to leave the rubber washers on the torque knobs,
because they prevent the knobs from slipping.
Attach the guard to the carriage by reinstalling the torque knobs as shown (21).
Return the carriage to the top of the guide tubes and tighten the carriage lock.

3. Loosen the wing nut on the router base.
4. Rotate the motor counterclockwise, and remove it.
5. Using the wrench kit provided, loosen the collet and remove the bit.
6. Install the new bit and tighten the collet securely.
13
Adjusting the Crosscut Rulers (Saws)
The saw has one rip ruler mounted vertically, and two crosscut rulers, one attached to the frame on each side of
the saw. The rip ruler is set at the factory, but the two crosscut rulers must be adjusted to the specific blade that is
mounted in the saw. Install a blade, then refer to “Adjusting the Crosscut Rulers” in the Operation Section.
NOTE: After the saw is completely assembled, you can make a simple cut to verify that the rulers are lined up
correctly.
Installing the Cord Keeper
The cord keeper keeps the cord away from the blade or bit and away from your work piece. (The Models 7400
and 7400XL have an integral cord keeper.)
1. Pinch the ends of the cord keeper together as shown in Figure 10 while you slowly slide the ends into the
guide tubes. Seat the ends securely.
Figure 10: Installing the Cord Keeper
2.
Remove the rubber stopper from the ring in the cord keeper. See Figure 11. Uncoil the cord from the motor,
and place the plug end through the ring as shown.
3. Loosen the carriage lock and lower the carriage to the bottom of the guide tubes (the farthest that the cord
will have to be extended). Lock the carriage lock in this lowered position.
4. Pull the cord keeper down so it is roughly parallel to the floor as shown. Pull the cord up to remove any slack
in it. Then open the rubber stopper and pull it over the cord with the small end of the taper on the bottom.

OPERATION
WARNING:
The following are suggestions that give you a general idea of how a panel
saw or router is intended to be operated. No instructions can replace
common sense and experience. Be sure you and all operators have enough
time and material to become familiar with the general operating
characteristics of this tool, and have FULLY READ AND UNDERSTOOD all
general operating and safety instructions.
Limitations of the Tool
Small Work pieces
SSC saws and routers are not recommended for work pieces that are smaller than the carriage. Do not cut
pieces that are so small that your hand must be behind the carriage to hold the piece in place. Use a tool
better suited to these applications, such as a table saw, radial arm saw, or band saw.
Work piece Height (Crosscutting)
SSC tools are limited in crosscut capacity as shown in Table II below.

Work piece Thickness
Maximum thickness of a work piece to be cut with SSC saws and routers is:
• 2 ¼” (55mm) on the Models 7400 and 7400XL
• 1-3/4” (45mm) on other models.
SSC recommends using the optional Hold-Down Bar for frequent cutting of materials thinner than ¾”(19mm).
Crosscutting Limitations
When crosscutting (vertical cuts), the work piece must be supported on at least two rollers (Figure 24) for safe
operation and accurate cutting. When you use the optional Midway Fence, the work piece must extend at least 4”
(26.6mm) beyond the carriage on both sides (see Figure 25).
Do not crosscut work pieces that extend more than 5 feet (1.5m) beyond the outermost roller (on a Model C4 or
C5 more than 2 feet (.6m) beyond). To increase available capacity for these larger panels, SSC recommends
using the optional Frame Extensions (Figure 38).
18
Rip cutting Limitations
The minimum length recommended for rip (horizontal) cuts is 2-1/2 feet (.79M), so the work piece will be
supported on at least four rollers. Pieces shorter than 4 feet (1.22m) can be rotated 90° and be crosscut. This
size limitation also applies when using the optional Midway Fence. See Figure 26 and 27.
Do not attempt to rip cut boards longer than 6 feet on the Model C4 or C5 (8 feet with the optional Frame
Extensions, Figure 28). On all other models, there is no limit to the length of board that can be rip cut. However,
you must insure that the board is properly supported at all times. For regular rip cutting of long pieces, SSC
recommends using optional Frame Extensions, or the extended-frame Model 7400XL.
Selecting a Saw Blade
The saw blade must be carefully matched to the materials being cut. Improper blade selection can result in
reduced tool life, inaccurate and poor quality cuts, and safety risks. The following table lists some recommended
blades for certain applications.
If in doubt, consult with your machinery dealer, or with our customer service department (800-772-2327), to
determine the best blade for your cutting needs.

Always keep blades clean and sharp for the best performance. A dull or dirty blade can bind and pinch, resulting
in kickback and poor quality cuts. If in doubt, replace it with a new blade.
The blade diameters specified for SSC panel saws are 8” (200mm), with an arbor of 5/8” (16mm).
Minimum blade kerf for the saw blade is .10”(2.5mm). Riving knife thickness is .08(1.98mm), blades that
are thinner than this kerf should not be used. Only blades made in conformity to EN847-1:1997 should be
used on this machine.
Basic Operating Functions

Locking the Carriage
Lock the carriage by tightening the red lock knob(s):
• On the C4, C5, and H-Series saws, located on the left guide tube.
• On Models 6400 and 6800 saws, located on the right guide tube.
• On Models 7400 and 7400XL saws, located to the left of the motor.
• On routers, one lock knob located on each guide tube.
Adjusting the Crosscut Rulers (Saws)
The saw has one rip ruler mounted vertically, and two crosscut rulers, one attached to the frame on each side of
the saw. The rip ruler is set at the factory, but the two crosscut rulers must be adjusted to the specific blade that is
mounted in the saw. Be sure the blade is installed before following these steps:
1. Remove the blade guard (18) so the blade is exposed.
2. Loosen the carriage lock and lower the carriage as shown in Figure .
Figure 22: Adjusting the Crosscut Rulers
3. Use a square (17) that measures at least 14” (356mm) on one side. Line up one edge of the square with the
tips of the saw blade, and the other edge of the square with the crosscut (horizontal) ruler. Slide the ruler (19)
so that its measure matches the measure on the square. A magnet holds the ruler in place, but you may wrap
clear tape around the ruler and frame for additional hold, if required.
4. Repeat the above steps to adjust the crosscut ruler on the other side (20) of the tool.
5. Make a simple cut to verify that the ruler is lined up correctly.
Adjusting the Material Thickness Control (Routers)
Adjust the control knob and spindle (on the back of the lifting platform) so the beveled router sub-base stops 1/8”
below the surface of the material being dadoed. Failure to make this adjustment will ultimately result in
unnecessary damage to the router platform and/or an inconsistent depth of cutting.
Figure 23: Kerf Spreader (7400 Series)
22
Adjusting the Kerf Spreader (Models 7400 and 7400XL)
The 7400-Series saws have a kerf spreader (Figure 23) mounted on a vertical tube to the left of the saw carriage
tracks. It is intended to run in the cutout kerf from the saw cut when making horizontal cuts from the right to the
left. The spreader keeps the upper part of the panel from sagging down and binding on the saw blade.
Adjust the spreader to the vertical position where the saw blade is running, and tighten it in place with the red hand
knob. When not being used, move the spreader to the top of the saw.
Using the Knife Scoring System (Models 7400 and 7400XL)
An accessory for the 7400-Series saws includes twin carbide knives that produce score marks directly in line with
the main saw blade. The score marks are easily adjusted to match the kerf line of the saw blade.
Refer to the instructions supplied with this accessory.
General Operating Tips
• For smooth, clean, chip-free cuts, you must use industrial carbide saw blades or router bits that are sharp.
Dull or improperly sharpened blades or bits will cause chipping, unclean cuts, chatter, and motor overloading.
If you are not sure that a blade or bit is sharp, replace it with a new one.
• When you feed the material through the tool horizontally, or move the carriage over the material vertically, do
it slowly, smoothly, and (whenever possible) without stopping. Overfeeding results in poor-quality cuts,
shortened blade or bit life, and motor overloading.
• Be careful when setting material onto the rollers. Do not drop heavy material onto the rollers or damage to
the rollers may result.
• For best results when sawing, place the work piece onto the tool with its backside facing you. This provides
the smoothest possible cut on the face side of the panel.
• Panels being cut horizontally or vertically must always be fed against the rotation of the saw blade.
• Panel saws are intended for cutting large panels down to size. As the overall panel size becomes smaller and
smaller, other types of sawing tools become more convenient and safer to use.
• When routing, whenever possible feed the material horizontally from right to left or vertically from top to
bottom.
• When routing, if most panels are narrow you may wish to elevate the entire tool 12” to 14” (305mm to 356mm)
above the floor. This will raise the work area for the narrow pieces to a more comfortable height and still allow
you to cross dado full-size panels. You can also achieve this by installing the optional Midway Fence.
• When routing window openings, start the plunge cut in an upper corner. This allows the drop piece to fall
downward and away from the bit when the final cut of the opening is completed.
• Refer to the Maintenance section for regular maintenance procedures.
Operating Procedure: Crosscutting
A crosscut is a vertical cut that must always be done from the top to the bottom of a work piece as shown in Figure
24 or 25. (See also “General Operating Tips” above and “Limitations of the Tool”.)
WARNING:
To reduce the risk of injury, do not place your hands on or under the carriage
or in the path of the saw blade.
1. Position the saw motor in the crosscutting position with the blade oriented vertically.
Turntable”.
See “Rotating the
2. For the 7400-Series models only, adjust the position of the spring-loaded saw foot to the thickness of the
material so that it gently presses on the face. Use the two adjusting knobs located above and below the saw
motor to adjust the spring loaded saw foot of the panel.
3. Loosen the carriage lock and move the carriage to the top of the guides.
4. Place the work piece on top of the rollers. Be careful not to drop the material on the rollers.
5. Slide the work piece to the desired position, using the crosscut rulers or optional gauging systems (Stop Bar or
Quick Stop) as measures.
23
6. Make certain that the work piece is adequately supported and stable in the machine. Refer also to
“Limitations of the Tool”. The work piece can be held with one hand; do not hold the work piece so that
your hand is anywhere behind the carriage or guides or in the path of the saw blade.
7. Start the motor (see “Starting and Stopping the Motor”), and allow it to reach full speed before beginning the
cut.
8. When the motor has reached full speed, slowly and smoothly pull the carriage down so the blade runs through
the work piece. Keep one hand on the handle at all times. Be careful not to force the saw through the work
piece, to avoid binding. If the blade binds in the work piece, or the work piece shifts during the cut, stop
the motor, carefully move the carriage to the top of the guides, restart the motor, and begin the cut
again.
9. Support and remove the cut-off piece as the saw completes its cut.
10. Once the cut is complete, turn off the motor and wait for the blade to come to a full stop. Move the work
pieces away from the blade. Return the carriage to the top of the guides, and lock the carriage rip lock.
11. When making cuts that are less than 1 inch (25.4mm), the chatter guard (located inside the blade guard) must
be resting on the work piece, not on the cut-off piece. See Figure 28. If it is not positioned this way, it will jam
the work piece and prevent the carriage from continuing through the cut. If the saw jams, turn the tool OFF
and wait for the blade to stop. Then back the saw out of the cut.
CAUTION: A coasting saw blade could mar the edge of a freshly cut work piece.

Operating Procedure: Rip cutting
A rip cut is a horizontal cut that can be done either from the left to the right or from the right to the left, as shown in
Figure 26 and Figure 27. Rip cuts must always be done by moving the work piece in the direction of the arrow on
the saw carriage. (See also “General Operating Tips” above and “Limitations of the Tool.”)
WARNING:
To reduce the risk of injury, ripping must always be done with the direction
of the arrow on the saw.
1. Before you begin, be sure there is enough space on both sides of the saw to completely load the work piece
on the saw frame, move it past the saw, and completely off-load it.
2. Select the ripping direction, from right or from left, based on preference. Then rotate the turntable to the
ripping position as shown. See “Rotating the Turntable”. The rip measurement is set at the factory for cutting
right to left. The measurement indicator will need to be adjusted for left to right.
3. For the 7400-Series models only, adjust the position of the spring-loaded saw foot to the thickness of the
material so that it gently presses on the face. Use the two adjusting knobs located above and below the saw
motor.
4. Select the height of the saw blade above the rollers. Raise or lower the carriage until the height index tab is
aligned with the corresponding dimension on the vertically mounted ruler. Lock the carriage securely to the
guides in this position.
5. Start the motor (see “Starting and Stopping the Motor”) and allow it to reach full speed before beginning the
cut.
6. Position the material on the side of the machine indicated by the arrows on the carriage that show direction of
cut. Place the work piece on top of the rollers. Be careful not to drop the material onto the rollers.
7. When the motor has reached full speed, slowly and smoothly push the work piece through the saw, in the
direction of the feed arrow on the saw. Avoid placing your hands, clothing, or body parts under the
carriage or in the cutting path of the saw blade. Do not look directly down the line of cut because dust
and debris are generated during this operation.
Be careful not to force the work piece through the saw, to avoid binding. If the saw blade binds in the work
piece, or the work piece shifts during the cut, stop the saw motor, carefully back the work piece out of
the saw, reposition the work piece, restart the motor, and begin the cut again.
8. As the work piece passes across the machine, move to the other side and complete the cut by pulling the
work piece past the saw blade. Support the upper piece to keep it from pinching the blade or the kerf
protector, or falling away from the machine.
9. Once the cut is complete, turn off the motor and wait for the blade to come to a full stop. Remove the work
pieces from the machine.
10. Rotate the turntable back to the vertical position and return the carriage to the top of the guides. Lock the
carriage in this position.

(work extends beyond saw carriage at least 4” (102mm))
11. When making cuts that are less than 1 inch, the chatter guard (located inside the blade guard) must be resting
on the work piece, not on the cut-off piece. See Figure 28. If it is not positioned this way, it will jam the work
piece and prevent the carriage from continuing through the cut. If the saw jams, turn the tool OFF and wait for
the blade to stop. Then back the saw out of the cut.
Figure 28: Chatter Preventer (H Series shown, in position for crosscutting)
Operating Procedure: Routing
1. Position the router platform in the appropriate position for the cut to be made. See “Rotating the Turntable”,
above.
2. Adjust the material thickness control for the thickness of the material to be cut (see “Adjusting the Thickness
Control,” above).
3. Loosen the carriage locks on the guide tubes and move the carriage to the top of the guides.
4. Place the work piece on top of the rollers. Be careful not to drop it onto the rollers.
5. Slide the work piece to the desired position, using the crosscut rulers or optional gauging system (Stop Bar or
Quick Stop) as measures.
6. Make certain that the work piece is adequately supported and stable in the machine. Refer also to
“Limitations of the Tool” above. The work piece can be held with one hand; do not hold the work piece so
that your hand is anywhere behind the carriage or guides or in the path of the bit.
26
7. To raise or lower the bit, adjust the graduated depth-adjusting ring on the router base. It indicates the exact
distance of the bit below the sub-base.
8. Start the motor (see “Starting and Stopping the Motor”), and allow it to reach full speed before beginning the
cut.
9. When the motor has reached full speed, slowly and smoothly pull the carriage so the blade runs through the
work piece. Keep one hand on the handle at all times. Be careful not to force the bit through the work piece,
to avoid binding.
10. Once the cut is complete, turn off the motor and wait for the bit to come to a full stop. Move the work piece
away from the bit. Return the carriage to the top of the guides, and lock the carriage lock.

MAINTENANCE
WARNING:
To reduce the risk of injury, always unplug the tool before doing any
maintenance. Never disassemble the tool or try to do any rewiring to its
electrical system. Contact a qualified electrician for electrical repairs.
Always follow lockout/tag out procedures when servicing electrical
equipment.
General Maintenance
Keep the tool in good repair by adopting a regular maintenance program. Before each day’s use, examine the
general condition of the tool, and inspect the guards, switches, power cord, and extension cord for damage.
Check for loose screws, misalignment, binding of moving parts, improper mounting, broken parts, and any other
condition that may affect its safe operation. If abnormal noise or vibration occurs, turn the tool off immediately and
have the problem corrected before further use. Do not use a damaged tool. Tag damaged tools “DO NOT USE”
until repaired (see “Repairs”).
Cleaning
Daily, clean all dust and debris from the vents in the motor housing.
Keep the handles clean, dry and free from oil and grease.
Use only mild soap and a damp cloth to clean the tool, because certain cleaning agents and solvents are harmful
to plastics and other insulated parts. Some of these include: gasoline, turpentine, lacquer thinner, paint thinner,
chlorinated cleaning solvents, ammonia, and household detergents containing ammonia. Never use flammable or
combustible solvents around tools.
WARNING:
To reduce the risk of injury, electric shock, and damage to the tool, never
immerse the saw or router in liquid or allow a liquid to flow inside it.
Maintaining the Motor
Under normal conditions, motor maintenance is not necessary until the brushes need to be replaced.
Every six months:
•
Inspect the brushes, and replace as necessary.
•
Mechanically inspect and clean the gears, spindles, bearings, housing, etc.
•
Electrically inspect the switch, cord, armature, etc.
•
Test to assure proper mechanical and electrical operation.
Lubricating the Guides
The carriage should move smoothly up and down the guide tubes or rails. However, if the guides become caked
with dust or debris, the carriage may get stuck or it may not slide smoothly. Periodically clean the guides with a
damp cloth, following the directions under “Cleaning” above. Then use a dry lubricant such as a spray silicone.
Other lubricants cause dust and debris to collect on the guides and contaminate the bearings.
29
SERVICE
Repairs
If your tool is damaged, call Safety Speed at 800-772-2327 for technical advice or for the name of a dealer near
you who can service your machine.
Replacement Parts
Refer to the separate replacement parts information provided with the tool.
Alignment
The tool is aligned at the factory to a tolerance of:
• ±1/32” (.8mm), on Models C4, C5, H4, H5, and H6
• ±1/64” (.4mm), on Models 3400, 6400, 6800, TR2, SR5, and SR5U
• ±.005” (13mm), on Models 7400 and 7400XL.
It needs realignment only if mishandled or abused, or if the motor or a roller is replaced.
Alignment consists of four steps that must be done in the following order (these steps are explained in detail
below):
1. Adjust the blade or bit so it is parallel with the guides.
2. Adjust the blade or bit so it will be perpendicular to the work piece.
3. Adjust the guides so they are perpendicular to the rollers.
4. Align the rollers.
Constructing an Alignment Tool
For maximum accuracy, construct a test square to check the full movement of the saw.
See Figure. Construct the square using a 6-ft (1.83m) metal ruler and two 4-ft (1.22m) metal rulers. (Using the 3’
(.91m), 4’ (1.22m), and 5’ (1.5m) measurements assures squareness.) Drill holes and attach the rulers with pop
rivets or small nuts and bolts.

Step 1: Adjust the Blade Parallel to the Guides (Saws Only)
The blade must move parallel to the guides, or tail burning may occur and the kerf will be wider than the set of the
blade. Make the following adjustment only if the blade appears to be out of alignment.
To check the blade parallelism:
1. Align the rollers and adjust the guides (see Steps 3 and 4 below).
2. If the blade “heels”, or leaves burn marks on the cut, position the carriage for a crosscut and make a sample
cut. Check both sides of the cut to determine which side of the blade is causing the problem (you will need
this information for adjusting the blade).
To adjust the blade parallelism:
1. Unplug the tool.
2. Position the Adjustment Tool on the rollers. Lower the carriage so the Adjustment Tool overhangs the blade.
3. Place the Adjustment Tool against the blade. The entire face of the blade should contact the Adjustment Tool.
If it does not, then the blade is not parallel to the work piece and you should:
a. Loosen (but do not remove) the two hex-head nuts holding the indexing pin assembly (Figure 33, #24).
b. If burn marks appear on the left side of the work piece, rotate the saw slightly clockwise until the entire face
of the blade contacts the Adjustment Tool.
If burn marks appear on the right side of the work piece, rotate the saw slightly counterclockwise until the
entire face of the blade contacts the Adjustment Tool.
Make only a slight adjustment at a time.
4. Securely tighten the two hex nuts holding the index pin assembly or assemblies.
5. Make a sample cut and adjust if necessary.
Step 2: Adjust the Blade or Bit (Perpendicularity)
To adjust for perpendicularity:
1. If the tool does not cut at 90° to the surface of the work piece, loosen the two motor mount nuts (Figure 33,
#25). An adjusting screw (26) is located to the right of the lower nuts.
2. Loosen the adjusting screw lock nut. Tighten or loosen the adjustment screw depending on the angle
adjustment required. Make only a slight adjustment.
3. Retighten the lock nut; making sure the screw is against the plate.
4. Retighten the motor mount nuts. Make a sample cut and readjust if necessary.
For perpendicular cuts,
be sure the saw motor is
against the factory-set
adjustment screw (26).
Figure 33: Adjusting the Blade (Perpendicularity)
31
Step 3: Align the Guides
WARNING:
Unplug the tool before beginning this adjustment.
If the tool does not cut at 90°, the guides may not be perpendicular to the rollers.
To check the guide alignment:
1. Unplug the tool before testing alignment or making adjustments.
2. Align the rollers (see Step 4 below).
3. Remove the blade guard to expose the blade. Mark a tooth to use as a reference. If you are using a highspeed steel blade, mark a tooth that points toward the edge of the Alignment Tool (described above).
4. Clamp the Alignment Tool to the roller assembly.
5. Pull the carriage down slowly until the marked reference tooth just touches the vertical edge of the Alignment
Tool. Continue to pull the carriage down: if the blade does not contact the square, or if the blade binds on the
square, the guides are not aligned.

Guide Tube
Bracket Nuts
Figure 34: Aligning the Guide Tubes
To align the guides:
1. Loosen the guide bracket nuts (Figure 34), but do not remove the bracket. Using a dead blow mallet, strike
the bracket on the side and in the direction you wish the guides to go. Do not strike the guides.
2. Recheck the squareness of the guides to the rollers, using the procedure outlined above.
necessary.
Readjust if
3. Securely retighten the guide bracket nuts.
Step 4: Align the Rollers
NOTE: This step is not applicable to the Model TR2.
To check the roller alignment:
1. Remove any Frame Extensions (reattach them after completing all alignment steps).
2. Remove or retract the Frame Stand, if used. Lay the tool flat so the roller nuts are easily accessible. With
proper care, you can place the tool on a table with the guides up.
3. The two outermost rollers are fixed, so adjust all other rollers to them. Lay the 6-ft edge of the Alignment Tool
(see above) across the rollers to verify alignment: all rollers should contact the edge. If a roller is “high” or
“low” to the edge of the Alignment Tool, align the rollers according the instructions below.
To align the rollers:
1. Clamp a straightedge (at least 5-ft (1.5m) long) to the top of the rollers so that it lies flat on the frame and
against the outermost rollers. Position the clamps above the outermost roller.
2. With the straightedge securely clamped, rotate each roller to be sure that it neither jams nor has excessive
clearance from the straightedge. If a roller runs “tight” or “loose” to the straightedge, loosen the roller nut. The
roller nuts are torqued and require at least an 18-in (458mm). breaker bar to loosen them.
3. All the rollers except the outermost are mounted on an eccentric center hub. Turning a roller when the roller
nut is loose will change the position of the roller. You may have to lift the front roller carriage bar to rotate the
eccentric hub. Turn the roller until it contacts the straightedge, being careful not to bend or bow the
straightedge when repositioning the roller.
4. Tighten the roller nut securely; making sure the roller does not change position.
5. Repeat this process as needed for any remaining rollers. NOTE: After replacing an outside roller, repeat
Step 2 as needed. Reposition the Frame Stand.

ACCESSORIES
Safety Speed offers several accessories for our panel saws and routers.
Frame Wheels
The Frame Wheels Accessory allows the tool to be rolled from one location to another in the shop. It includes two
wheels and mounting fasteners.
Wheels are standard on the Models 7400 and 7400XL, and are not available for the Model TR2.
Installation
Bolt one wheel to each end of the frame as shown in Figure 35.
Figure 35: Installing the Wheels Accessory
(viewed from rear of frame)
Frame Stand
The Frame Stand Accessory allows the tool to be freestanding in the shop. It includes two long angle-steel
supports that attach to the top of the frame, one strap that attaches to the bottom of the frame, and U-bolts or
other fasteners for mounting them. Slightly different Stands are required for each frame model.
Figure36: Installing the Frame Stand, Model H4 or H5
(Model H5 shown, viewed from rear of frame)
33
Stands are standard on the Models 7400 and 7400XL. They are not available for the Model TR2. The Model C4
and C5 also have an optional retractable stand that can be folded for fast transport of the tool.
Installation
Attach the components as shown in Figure 36 or 37.
Figure 37: Installing the Frame Stand, Models H-6 and 6400
(Model 6400 shown)
If the tripod stand has not been purchased, the panel saw must be located against a wall, or other solid vertical
surface. Blocking must be attached to the wall which will allow the upper right and left corners of the machine
frame to be supported without the pulley wheel and box assembly (and dust hose roller assembly, if purchased)
touching the wall. The panel saw frame should stand at approximately 15 degrees. This will place the front of the
guide tubes at the floor approximately 30” away from the wall, or blocking supports. At this point, the top of the
machine should be secured to the back supporting wall by means of a lightweight chain or security rope. This will
prevent the machine from being pushed over from behind.
SAFETY NOTE: DO NOT USE BANDING TO ATTACH THE PANEL SAW TO THE SUPPORT WALL.
Frame Extensions
The Frame Extensions Accessory adds 20”(509mm) to each end of the tool frame. It includes two extensions and
the necessary fasteners.
Extensions are recommended for cutting 4x8-ft (1.2m x 2.4m) sheets on the Model C4 and C5, and for cutting
panels longer than 10 ft (3m) on larger tools. They are not available for the Models 7400, 7400XL, or TR2.
Installation
Attach the extensions to the back of the frame as shown in Figure 38. It is not necessary to remove any parts
from your existing machine to install the extensions.
This roller position is
optional.

Dust Collection Kits
Dust Collection Kits are recommended if the tool will be used in an enclosed area. They include discharge tubing
and a hose roller system to hold the outboard end of the tubing. For saws, the kits also include new blade guards
that have a 2” (50.8mm) hose connection.
Dust collection components (not including a vacuum source) are standard on the Models 7400 and 7400XL.
The dust hose must be attached to an SSC Vacuum or to any high-pressure vacuum source that provides at least
90” to 110” of static pressure and 100 CFM.
CE certified machines come standard with the hose connection on the blade guard.
Installation
Refer to Figure 39.
CAUTION:
Before beginning installation, disconnect the power supply to the motor,
raise the carriage to the top of the guides, and lock the carriage in place with
the lock knob.

frame tubes.
6. Measure out from the blade or bit, and adjust the stop bar ruler by sliding it left or right inside its aluminum
extension.
36
Operation
Set the individual flip stops to the positions desired for repetitive cuts: loosen the collars with the provided Allen
wrench, slide the collars to the desired position, and retighten them.
Multiple cuts can be made by flipping the stops up or down to position the work piece at the proper distance from
the blade or bit. When setting multiple stops, remember to account for the material lost to the blade kerf.
Quick Stop
The Quick Stop Accessory provides an easy method of setting an exact repeatable cut length for crosscuts and
vertical routing cuts. It consists of an aluminum angle extrusion with movable tape measure, a large aluminum
stop block with threaded lock knob, and mounting brackets and screws. The Quick Stop can be attached to any
horizontal frame member, on any model saw. Standard Quick Stops are factory-drilled to mount on the left side of
the frame; right-hand Quick Stops are available by special order.
It is standard on the Models 7400 and 7400XL, and is not available for the Model TR2.

4. Using the mounting bracket holes as a template, drill four 7/32” (5.55mm) holes in the tool frame.
5. Attach the brackets to the frame, using four ¼(6.35mm)-20 self-tapping hex-head screws.
6. Measure from the blade or bit, and adjust the Quick Stop measuring tape by sliding it in the angle extrusion.
37
Operation
1. Position the stop block at the desired cut length, as shown by the Quick Stop measuring tape, and secure the
block with the lock knob.
2. Raise the carriage to the top of the guides.
3. Slide the work piece behind the carriage, and hold it firmly against the stop block. Never reach behind the
carriage!
4. Cut the work piece with a smooth, continuous down stroke of the carriage.
Midway Fence
The Midway Fence Accessory is a removable horizontal work piece support that mounts halfway up the tool frame.
It allows narrow work pieces to be worked at waist height. The fence consists of left and right fixed brackets that
mount to the frame, and removable supports for each side. The accessory contains the components shown in
Figure 44.
The Midway Fence is optional on the Models C4, C5, H-Series, 6400, 6800, and 3400. It is standard on the
Models SR5, SR5U, 7400, and 7400XL, and is not available for the Model TR-2.
Installation
NOTE: All hex nuts furnished with this accessory are lock nuts. During pre-assembly, do not completely tighten
these nuts.
1. Lay out the parts shown in Figure 44 on a horizontal surface (table or bench) for pre-assembly. Note that one
end of each fence extrusion is cut at a 45° angle. The units should be pre-assembled so that these beveled
ends will fit against the center of the tool frame at final assembly.
Figure 44: Pre-assembly of Midway Fence
2. Set the complete right-hand fence assembly onto the tool frame as shown in Figure 45.
38

RIGHT SIDE
Figure 45: Mounting the Midway Fence
3. Tip the top of the rear support brackets (#9 in Figure 44) under the upper horizontal frame member (#8), raise
the fence, and push the lower ends of the rear support brackets down behind the lower horizontal frame
member. The nuts may have to be loosened slightly to perform this step.
4. Tap the entire fence system toward the center of the tool frame, and align (as closely as possible) the 45°
angle of the aluminum extrusion (#5) with the 45° angle of the vertical tube at the center of the frame. To
assure a neat appearance, be sure the rear support brackets (#9) are flush top and bottom with the machine
frame tubes, and that they are at a 90° angle to the horizontal machine frame tubes.
5. Double-check the position of the complete fence assembly. Using the holes in the rear support brackets as a
template, drill six 7/32” (11.11mm)mounting holes in the machine horizontal frame tubes, and secure with six
self-tapping screws.
6. Repeat Steps 2 through 5 on the left-hand side of the frame.
7. Mount the wooden fence sections (#4), with the 45° angle ends toward the center of the machine, between the
aluminum extrusion sections and the cam-type spacers (#1). When not in use, the two wooden fence sections
can be stored in the material support channels (#15) on each side.
8. The friction fit of the wooden fence sections between the aluminum support bracket and the cam-type spacers
can be adjusted by turning the bolt heads with a wrench. This fit can be readjusted at any time without
realigning the fence system.
9. Align the fence system (see below).
Fence Alignment
1. Disconnect the power supply to the tool.
2. Remove the blade guard.
3. Slightly loosen the bolts that secure the aluminum extrusion (#5, Fig. 44) to the rear support brackets (#9), to
allow the extrusion to be moved up or down by tapping it with a mallet.
4. Tap the extrusion to align it evenly, 1/4” (6.35mm) above the lower horizontal frame member (#8).
5. Place a carpenter’s square on the wood fence, with the longer side on the fence and the shorter side against
the saw blade. Raise and lower the carriage to check if the saw blade maintains alignment with the edge of
the square. Gently tap the outside edge of the fence system to bring the wooden fence and the carpenter’s
square into alignment with the saw blade travel.
6. Reinstall the blade guard and reconnect the power supply.
7. Using a sample panel approximately 18” (458mm) wide and 40” (1,016mm) long, and a freshly sharpened saw
blade, trim 1” (25.4mm) off the end of the panel.
8. Remove the panel from the fence. Turn it around, keeping the same edge down. Trim 1” (25.4mm) off the
other end.
9. Measure the top and bottom of the piece. When the measurements are the same, or within the tolerance of
39
the machine, tighten all securing bolts.
10. To align the left half of the fence, place a 6-ft (1.8m) or 8-ft (2.4m) straightedge on the right-hand fence. Move
it to the left until it extends the full length of the left wooden fence (48”or 1,219mm). Clamp the straightedge to
the frame of the machine. Carefully adjust the left aluminum extrusion until the top of the wooden fence gently
touches the bottom of the straightedge along its entire surface. Retighten all securing bolts.
To adjust the rulers, measure out from the saw blade and place a vertical pencil mark at 24” (610mm). Place both
thumbs on the face of the ruler, and slide the ruler to the right or left to the proper location. Test-cut a piece of
scrap material to check the ruler position.
Hold-Down Bar
The Hold-Down Bar Accessory consists of a vertical tube and several spring hold-down arms that help hold any
thin, flexible material for chip-free, accurate cutting. It accepts material up to 3/4 in. (19mm) thick, and can be
quickly removed without wrenches for cutting thicker material.
A Hold-Down Bar is standard on the Models 7400 and 7400XL.
Installation
1. Attach the top and bottom support brackets (Figure 46) with four 5/16” x 3/4” (7.9mm x 19.05mm) cap screws
and nuts. The top bracket is marked “T” and the bottom bracket is marked “B”.
2. Insert the round vertical tube up through the top bracket and then lower it down through the bottom bracket. A
small hex-head screw at the bottom of the tube prevents you from inserting it the wrong way.
3. Attach the top and bottom tension locks as shown in Figure 46.
4. Attach the spring hold-down arms with 1/4” (6.35mm) hex-head T.C. screws and washers.
5. Turn the vertical tube until the spring arms touch the tool frame and then tighten the top and bottom tension
locks.
