GENERAL SAFETY RULES
Woodworking can be dangerous if safe and proper operating procedures are not followed. As with all machinery, certain
hazards are involved with the operation of the product. Using the machine with respect and caution will considerably lessen
the possibility of personal injury. However, if normal safety precautions are overlooked or ignored, personal injury to the operator may result. Safety equipment such as guards, push sticks, hold-downs, featherboards, goggles, dust masks, and hearing protection can reduce the potential for injury, but even the best safety measures, will not make up for poor judgment,
carelessness or inattention. Always use common sense and exercise caution in the workshop. If a procedure feels dangerous, don’t try it. Select an alternate procedure that is safer. REMEMBER: Your personal safety is your responsibility.
This machine was designed for certain applications only. DO NOT modify and/or use it for any application other than that for
which it was designed. If you have questions relative to a particular application, DO NOT use the machine until you have first
contacted Delta to determine if it can or should be performed on the product.

CONNECTING TOOL TO POWER SOURCE
POWER CONNECTIONS
A separate electrical circuit should be used for your tools. This circuit should not be less than #12 wire and should be
protected with a 20 Amp time lag fuse. If an extension cord is used, use only 3-wire extension cords which have 3prong grounding type plugs and matching receptacle which will accept the tool’s plug. Before connecting the motor to
the power line, make sure the switch is in the “OFF” position and be sure that the electric current is of the same characteristics as indicated on the tool. All line connections should make good contact. Running on low voltage will damage the motor..
WARNING: DO NOT EXPOSE THE TOOL TO RAIN OR OPERATE THE TOOL IN DAMP LOCATIONS.
MOTOR SPECIFICATIONS
Your tool is wired for 120 volt, 60 HZ alternating current. Before connecting the tool to the power source, make sure
the switch is in the “OFF” position. The no-load speed of the motor is 5200 RPM.
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: THIS TOOL MUST BE GROUNDED WHILE IN USE TO PROTECT THE OPERATOR FROM
ELECTRIC SHOCK.
2. Grounded, cord-connected tools intended for use on
a supply circuit having a nominal rating less than 150
volts:
1. All grounded, cord-connected tools:
In the event of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric current to reduce
the risk of electric shock. This tool is equipped with an electric cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and a
grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into a matching
outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance
with all local codes and ordinances.
If the tool is intended for use on a circuit that has an outlet
that looks like the one illustrated in Fig. 1, the tool will have a
grounding plug that looks like the plug illustrated in Fig. 1. A
temporary adapter, which looks like the adapter illustrated in
Fig. 2, may be used to connect this plug to a matching 2-conductor receptacle as shown in Fig. 2 if a properly grounded
outlet is not available. The temporary adapter should be used
only until a properly grounded outlet can be installed by a
qualified electrician. The green-colored rigid ear, lug, and the
like, extending from the adapter must be connected to a permanent ground such as a properly grounded outlet box.
Whenever the adapter is used, it must be held in place with a
metal screw.
Do not modify the plug provided - if it will not fit the outlet,
have the proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in risk of electric shock. The conductor with
insulation having an outer surface that is green with or without yellow stripes is the equipment-grounding conductor. If
repair or replacement of the electric cord or plug is necessary, do not connect the equipment-grounding conductor
to a live terminal.
NOTE: In Canada, the use of a temporary adapter is not
permitted by the Canadian Electric Code.
Check with a qualified electrician or service personnel if the
grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if in
doubt as to whether the tool is properly grounded.
NOTE: In Canada, the use of a temporary adapter is not
permitted by the Canadian Electric Code.
Use only 3-wire extension cords that have 3-prong grounding
type plugs and matching 3-conductor receptacles that
accept the tool’s plug, as shown in Fig. 1
WARNING: IN ALL CASES, MAKE CERTAIN THAT
THE RECEPTACLE IN QUESTION IS PROPERLY
GROUNDED. IF YOU ARE NOT CERTAIN, HAVE A
QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN CHECK THE RECEPTACLE.
Repair or replace damaged or worn cord immediately.

Rating
Use proper extension cords. Make sure your extension
cord is in good condition and is a 3-wire extension cord
which has a 3-prong grounding type plug and matching
receptacle which will accept the tool’s plug. When using an
extension cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to carry
the current of the tool. An undersized cord will cause a
drop in line voltage, resulting in loss of power and overheating. Fig. 3, shows the correct gauge to use depending
on the cord length. If in doubt, use the next heavier gauge.
The smaller the gauge number, the heavier the cord.

A
AUXILIARY WOOD FENCE
WARNING: When performing multiple or
repetitive cut-off operations that result in
small cut-off pieces (one inch or less), the saw
blade can possibly catch the cut-off pieces and project them out of the machine or into the blade guard
and housing, possibly causing damage and/or injury.
An auxiliary wood fence can help minimize the danger.
Fig. 36
Holes are provided in the fence (A) Fig. 36 to attach an
auxiliary fence. This auxiliary fence is constructed of
straight wood approximately 1/2 inch thick by 3 inches
high by 20 inches long. NOTE: The auxiliary fence (A) is
used ONLY with the saw blade in the 0 degree bevel
position (90 degrees to the table). When bevel cutting
(blade tilted) the auxiliary fence will have to be removed.

CUTTING ALUMINUM
RIGHT
Aluminum extrusions such as used for making aluminum
screens and storm windows can be cut with the compound miter saw. Position the material so the blade is
cutting through the smallest cross-section, as shown in
Fig. 37. The wrong way to cut aluminum angles is illustrated in Fig. 38. Apply a stick wax to the blade before
cutting aluminum stock. Stick wax is available at most
industrial mill supply houses. The stick wax provides
proper lubrication and keeps chips from adhering to the
blade.

WARNING: NEVER APPLY LUBRICANT TO
THE BLADE WHILE THE TOOL IS RUNNING.

CUTTING BOWED MATERIAL
If the workpiece is bowed, position it on the table with the bowed part up and against the fence (Fig. 39).
If the material is positioned the wrong way (Fig. 40), the workpiece will pinch the blade near the completion of the cut.

CUTTING CROWN MOLDING
One of the many features of a compound miter saw is the ease of cutting crown molding. The following is an example
of cutting both inside and outside corners on 52/38 degree wall angle crown molding. NOTE: When cutting 45 degree
wall angle crown molding, follow the same procedure for both inside and outside corners. The only difference will be
that the bevel position will always be at 30 degrees but the miter position will be 35.25 degrees to the right or left.
1. Move the table to the 31.62 degree right miter position and lock the table in position. NOTE: A positive stop is
provided to find this angle quickly.
2. Tilt the saw blade to the 33.85 degree left bevel position and tighten bevel lock handle. NOTE: A triangle indicator
is provided on the bevel scale to find this angle quickly.
3. Place the crown molding on the table with the CEILING EDGE of the molding against the fence, and make the cut
(Fig. 41). NOTE: The piece of crown molding used for the outside corner will always be on the right hand side of the
blade,(A) Fig. 41. The piece of crown molding used for the inside corner will always be on the left hand side of the
blade, (B) Fig. 41.
4. To make the matching halves of the inside and outside corners, rotate the table to the 31.62 degree left miter position and tighten table lock handle. NOTE: A positive stop is provided to find this angle quickly.
5. Place the crown molding on the table with the WALL EDGE of the crown molding against the fence and make the
cut. Again, the piece of crown molding used for the outside corner will always be on the right side of the blade, (C) Fig.
42. The piece of crown molding used for the inside corner will always be on the left side of the blade (D) Fig. 42
6. Fig. 43 illustrates the two outside corner pieces.

MAINTENANCE
CHANGING THE BLADE
WARNING: USE ONLY CROSS-CUTTING BLADES. WHEN USING CARBIDE TIPPED BLADES, BE CERTAIN THAT THEY HAVE A NEGATIVE HOOK ANGLE. USE ONLY 10″″ DIAMETER SAW BLADES RATED FOR
6000 RPM OR HIGHER AND HAVE 5/8″″ DIAMETER ARBOR HOLES.
1. DISCONNECT TOOL FROM POWER SOURCE.
2. Remove the screw (A) Fig. 45, and rotate the cover
(B) to the rear (Fig. 46).
3. Depress the arbor lock (A) Fig. 47, to keep the blade
from turning.
4. Use the supplied wrench (D) Fig. 48 to loosen the
arbor screw (E). Turn it clockwise.
5. Remove the arbor screw (E), outside blade flange
(F), and saw blade (G) from the saw arbor.
6. Attach the new blade. BE CERTAIN THAT THE
TEETH OF THE SAW BLADE ARE POINTING DOWN
AT THE FRONT. Use the supplied wrench to attach the
outside blade flange (F) Fig. 48, and the arbor screw (E).
At the same time, depress the arbor lock to keep the
blade from turning.
7. Replace the screw and cover (moved to the rear in
STEP 2).

ADJUSTING BLADE GUARD
1. After an extended period of time, the movable
blade guard (B) Fig. 45 might move erratically when the
cuttinghead is lowered. This can be easily corrected by
slightly tightening the nut (C) Fig. 45 until the lower
blade guard moves smoothly.
B
2. As soon as the cuttinghead begins to lower, the
lower blade guard (B) Fig. 45 should begin to move. If it
does not, loosen the nut (C) slightly until the blade guard
(B) moves smoothly.

BRUSH INSPECTION
AND REPLACEMENT
CAUTION: BEFORE INSPECTING THE BRUSHES,
DISCONNECT THE TOOL FROM THE POWER
SOURCE.
Brush life varies, depending on the load on the motor.
Check the brushes after the first 50 hours of use for a
new machine, or after a new set of brushes has been
installed. After the first check, examine them after about
every 10 hours of use until replacement is necessary. To
inspect the brushes:
B
1. Remove three screws (A) Fig. 49, and remove motor
cover (B).
A
2. The brushes are located in the two holders (C) Fig. 50.
Remove spade type terminal connectors (D) and pull out
brush holders (C).
3. Fig. 51 illustrates one of the brushes (E) removed
from the holder (C). When the carbon on either brush (E)
is worn to 3/16″ in length or if either spring (F) or shunt
wire (G) (beneath spring) is burned or damaged in any
way, replace both brushes. If the brushes are found
serviceable after removing, reinstall them in the same
position as removed.
