DIRECTION OF FEED. Feed work into a blade
or cutter against the direction of rotation of
the blade or cutter only.
21. NEVER LEAVE TOOL RUNNING UNATTENDED.
TURN POWER OFF. Do not leave tool until it
comes to a complete stop.
22. REPLACEMENT PARTS. When servicing, use
only identical replacement parts.
23. POLARIZED PLUGS. To reduce the risk of
electric shock, this equipment 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.
VOLTAGE WARNING: Before connecting the tool to
a power source (receptacle, outlet, etc.) be sure the
voltage supplied is the same as that specified on
the nameplate of the tool. A power source with
voltage greater than that specified for the tool can
result in SERIOUS INJURY to the user- as well as
damage to the tool. If in doubt, DO NOT PLUG IN
THE TOOL. Using a power source with voltage less
than the nameplate rating is harmful to the motor.
USE 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 overheating. Table 1
shows the correct size to use depending on cord
length and nameplate ampere rating. If in doubt, use
the next heavier gage. The smaller the gage number,
the heavier the cord.
SECURE WORK. Use clamps or a vise to hold
work when practical. It's safer than using your
hand and it frees both hands to operate tool.
DO NOT OVERREACH. Keep proper footing
and balance at all times.
MAINTAIN TOOLS WITH CARE. Keep tools
sharp and clean for best and safest
performance.
Follow
instructions
for
lubricating and changing accessories.
DISCONNECT TOOLS before servicing; when
changing accessories such as blades, bits,
cutters, and the like.
REDUCE THE RISK OF UNINTENTIONAL
STARTING. Make sure switch is in off position
before plugging in.
USE
RECOMMENDED
ACCESSORIES.
Consult the owner's manual for recommended
accessories. The use of improper accessories
may cause risk of injury to persons.
NEVER STAND ON TOOL. Serious injury
could occur if the tool is tipped or if the
cutting tool is unintentionally contacted.
CHECK DAMAGED PARTS. Before further use
of the tool, a guard or other part that is
damaged should be carefully checked to
determine that it will operate properly and
perform its intended function - check for
alignment of moving parts, binding of moving
parts, breakage of parts, mounting, and any
other conditions that may affect its operation.
A guard or other part that is damaged should
be properly repaired or replaced.

ADDITIONAL SAFETY RULES
DO NOT let comfort or familiarity with product (gained
from repeated use) replace strict adherence to slide
compound saw safety rules. If you use this tool unsafely
or incorrectly, you can suffer serious personal injury.
1.
Wear eye protection.
2.
Keep hands out of path of saw blade. Avoid
contact with any coasting blade. It can still
cause severe injury.
3.
Do not operate saw without guards in place.
Check blade guard for proper closing before each
use. Do not operate saw if blade guard does not
move freely and close instantly. Never clamp or
tie the blade guard into the open position.
4.
Do not perform any operation freehand. The
workpiece must be secured firmly against the
turn base and guide fence with a vise during
all operations. Never use your hand to secure
the workpiece.
5.
Never reach around saw blade.
6.
Turn off tool and wait for saw blade to stop
before moving workpiece or changing settings.
7.
Unplug tool before changing blade or servicing.
8.
To reduce the risk of injury, return carriage to the
full rear position after each crosscut operation.
9.
Always secure all moving portions before
carrying the tool.
10. Stopper pin which locks the cutter head down
is for carrying and storage purposes only and
not for any cutting operations.
11. Do not use the tool in the presence of
flammable liquids or gases. The electrical
operation of the tool could create an explosion and
fire when exposed to flammable liquids or gases.
12. Check the blade carefully for cracks or
damage before operation. Replace cracked or
damaged blade immediately. Gum and wood
pitch hardened on blades slows saw and
increases potential for kickback. Keep blade
clean by first removing it from tool, then cleaning
it with gum and pitch remover, hot water or
kerosene. Never use gasoline to clean blade.
13. While making a slide cut, KICKBACK can occur.
KICKBACK occurs when the blade binds in the
workpiece during a cutting operation and the saw
blade is driven rapidly towards the operator. Loss
of control and serious personal injury can result. If
blade begins to bind during a cutting operation, do
not continue to cut and release switch immediately.
14. Use only flanges specified for this tool.
15. Be careful not to damage the arbor, flanges
(especially the installing surface) or bolt. Damage
to these parts could result in blade breakage.

Make sure that the turn base is properly
secured so it will not move during operation.
Use the holes in the base to fasten the saw to a
stable work platform or bench. NEVER use tool
where operator positioning would be awkward.
For your safety, remove the chips, small pieces,
etc. from the table top before operation.
Avoid cutting nails. Inspect for and remove all
nails from the workpiece before operation.
Make sure the shaft lock is released before
the switch is turned on.
Be sure that the blade does not contact the
turn base in the lowest position.
Hold the handle firmly. Be aware that the saw
moves up or down slightly during start-up and
stopping.
Make sure the blade is not contacting the
workpiece before the switch is turned on.
Before using the tool on an actual workpiece,
let it run for a while. Watch for vibration or
wobbling that could indicate poor installation
or a poorly balanced blade.
Wait until the blade attains full speed before
cutting.
Stop operation immediately if you notice
anything abnormal.
Do not attempt to lock the trigger in the "ON"
position.
Be alert at all times, especially during
repetitive, monotonous operations. Do not be
lulled into a false sense of security. Blades
are extremely unforgiving.
Always use accessories recommended in this
manual. Use of improper accessories such as
abrasive wheels may cause an injury.
NEVER hold workpiece on right side of blade with
left hand or vice versa. This is called cross-armed
cutting and exposes user to risk of SERIOUS
PERSONAL INJURY as shown in the figure.
ALWAYS use vise to secure workpiece.
30.
31.
32.
Do not abuse cord. Never yank cord to
disconnect it from the receptacle. Keep cord
away from heat, oil, water and sharp objects.
NEVER stack workpieces on the table top to
speed cutting operations. Cut only one piece
at a time.
Some material contains chemicals which may
be toxic. Take caution to prevent dust
inhalation and skin contact. Follow material
supplier safety data.

WARNING:
It is extremely important to always secure the
workpiece correctly with the proper type of
vise or crown molding stoppers. Failure to do
so may result in serious personal injury and cause
damage to the tool and/or the workpiece.
After a cutting operation do not raise the blade
until it has come to a complete stop. The
raising of a coasting blade may result in serious
personal injury and damage to the workpiece.
When cutting a workpiece that is longer than
the support base of the saw, the material
should be supported the entire length beyond
the support base and at the same height to
keep the material level. Proper workpiece
support will help avoid blade pinch and possible
kickback which may result in serious personal
injury. Do not rely solely on the vertical vise and/or
horizontal vise to secure the workpiece. Thin
material tends to sag. Support workpiece over its
entire length to avoid blade pinch and possible
KICKBACK.

hole in the guide fence and tighten the screw on the
back of the guide fence to secure the vise rod.
Position the vise arm according to the thickness and shape of
the workpiece and secure the vise arm by tightening the screw.
If the screw to secure the vise arm contacts the guide fence,
install the screw on the opposite side of vise arm. Make sure
that no part of the tool contacts the vise when lowering the
handle fully and pulling or pushing the carriage all the way. If
some part contacts the vise, re-position the vise.
Press the workpiece flat against the guide fence and the
turn base. Position the workpiece at the desired cutting
position and secure it firmly by tightening the vise knob.

avoid blade pinch and possible kickback which
may result in serious personal injury.
OPERATION
NOTICE:
•
Before use, be sure to release the handle from the
lowered position by pulling the stopper pin.
•
Do not apply excessive pressure on the handle
when cutting. Too much force may result in
overload of the motor and/or decreased cutting
efficiency. Push down handle with only as much
force as is necessary for smooth cutting and
without significant decrease in blade speed.
•
Gently press down the handle to perform the cut. If
the handle is pressed down with force or if lateral
force is applied, the blade will vibrate and leave a
mark (saw mark) in the workpiece and the
precision of the cut will be impaired.
•
During a slide cut, gently push the carriage toward the
guide fence without stopping. If the carriage movement
is stopped during the cut, a mark will be left in the
workpiece and the precision of the cut will be impaired.
•
•
WARNING:
Firmly tighten the knob clockwise so that the
carriage will not move during operation.
Insufficient tightening of the knob may cause
possible kickback which may result in serious
personal injury.

WARNING:
After setting the blade for a bevel cut, before
operating the tool ensure that the carriage and
blade will have free travel throughout the
entire range of the intended cut. Interruption of
the carriage or blade travel during the cutting
operation may result in kickback and serious
personal injury.
•
While making a bevel cut keep hands out of
the path of the blade. The angle of the blade may
confuse the operator as to the actual blade path
while cutting and contact with the blade will result
in serious personal injury.
•
The blade should not be raised until it has
come to a complete stop. During a bevel cut the
piece cut off may come to rest against the blade.
If the blade is raised while it is rotating the cut-off
piece maybe ejected by the blade causing the
material to fragment which may result in serious
personal injury.
NOTICE:
•
When pressing down the handle, apply pressure in
parallel with the blade. If a force is applied
perpendicularly to the turn base or if the pressure
direction is changed during a cut, the precision of
the cut will be impaired.

When securing aluminum extrusions, use spacer
blocks or pieces of scrap as shown in the figure to
prevent deformation of the aluminum. Use a
cutting lubricant when cutting the aluminum
extrusion to prevent build-up of the aluminum
material on the blade.

A dado type cut can be made by proceeding as follows:
Adjust the lower limit position of the blade using
the adjusting screw and the stopper arm to limit
the cutting depth of the blade. Refer to "Stopper
arm" section described previously.
After adjusting the lower limit position of the blade,
cut parallel grooves across the width of the
workpiece using a slide (push) cut as shown in the
figure. Then remove the workpiece material
between the grooves with a chisel.
WARNING:
Never attempt to cut thick or round aluminum
extrusions. Thick or round aluminum extrusions
can be difficult to secure and may work loose
during the cutting operation which may result in
loss of control and serious personal injury.

WARNING:
Do not attempt to perform this type of cut by
using a wider type blade or dado blade.
Attempting to make a groove cut with a wider
blade or dado blade could lead to unexpected
cutting results and kickback which may result in
serious personal injury
Be sure to return the stopper arm to the
original position when performing other than
groove cutting. Attempting to make cuts with the
stopper arm in the incorrect position could lead to
unexpected cutting results and kickback which
may result in serious personal injury.
CAUTION:
Be sure to return the stopper arm to the original
position when performing other than groove cutting.
CAUTION:
Use straight wood of even thickness as the wood
facing.
Carrying tool
WARNING:
Use screws to attach the wood facing to the
guide fence. The screws should be installed
so that the screw heads are below the surface
of the wood facing so that they will not
interfere with the positioning of the material
being cut. Misalignment of the material being cut
can case unexpected movement during the cutting
operation which may result in a loss of control and
serious personal injury.
