• When cutting irregularly shaped workpieces,
plan your

must lie flat or be held by a fixture or jig that will not let
it twist, rock or slip while being cut.

The Saw (continued)
If the saw is to be used in a portable application, mount the saw to a 3/4" piece of plywood.
The mounting board can then be clamped

Basic Saw Operations
WARNING:
For your convenient
use, your saw has
a blade brake. The brake is not a safety
device.
Never rely on it to replace
proper use or the guard
I
on your saw, If the blade does not stop within
6
seconds,
unplug
the saw and follow
the instructions in the Trouble
Shooting
section for fixing the
brake before using saw again.

Proper positioning
of your budy and hands when operating the rotter saw will make cutting easter and safer.

Cutting
Bowed Material
Before cutting a workpiece,
check to make sure it is not
bowed. !f it is bowed the workpiece
must be positioned
and cut as illustrated.
Do not position workpiece
incorrectly or t_' to cut the workpiece
without the support of
the fence. This will cause pinching of the workpiece
on
the blade. The workpiece
could suddenly jump or move
and your hand could hit the blade.
Correct
Incorrect
Workpiece
Support
Long pteces need extra supports.
The supports should
be placed along the workpiece so the workpiece does not
sag and your hand holding tile workpiece is positioned 4"
or more from the blade path. The support should let the
workpiece
lay flat on the base and work table during the
cutting operation

Picture
A compound
miter is a cut usually requiring both a miter
setting and bevel setting. A compound
miter is used for
making frames or boxes that have sloping sides and are
wide at one end and narrow at the opposite end Compound miters are "tricky" to make because the miter setting and bevel setting are directly related to each other.
Every time the miter setting is changed the bevel setting
must also be adjusted:
likewise
every adjustment
to
bevel requires
a corresponding
adjustment
to miter.
Because it may take several tries to obtain the desired
angle, it as advisable
to make test cuts in a scrap piece
of material

Moldings
A compound
miter saw is also excellent for cutting molding Molding is sometimes
difficult because in order to fit
correctly it must be precisely cut.

Base
Moldings
Base moldings and many other moldings can be cut on a
miter saw. The set tip of the saw depends on your molding and your application
as shown, Always make sure
moldings rest firmly against fence and table.
