(rings, wrist watches). They can get caught and draw
you into moving parts.
, Wear nonslip footwear'.
o Use the sawblade guard, spreader and anti-kickback
pawls for any thru-sawing (whenever the blade comes
through the top of the workpiece). Make sure the antikickback pawls work properly. Make sure the spreader
is in line with sawblade (See page 10-1!)..
° Make sure all clamps and locks are tight and no parts
have any excessive play.
= Remove adjusting keys and wrenches. Form a habit of
checking for' and removing keys and adjusting
wrenches from table top before turning it on.
° Make sure all clamps and locks are tight and no parts
have excessive play.
To avoid injury from jams, slips or thrown pieces
(kickbacks or throwbacks):
_
, Tie back long hair.
o Roll long sleeves above the elbow.
o Noise levels vary _,idelyo To'avoid possible hearing
damage, wear ear plugs or muffs when using table saw
for hours at a time.
oAny power saw can throw foreign objects into the eyes.
This can result in pei'manent eye damage. Wear safety
goggles (not glasses) that cbmply with ANSI Z87.1

Inspect your blade.
, Choose the right blade or' cutting accessory for the
material and the type of cutting you plan to doe
o Never use grinding wheels, abrasive cutoff wheels,
friction wheels (metal cutting blades) wire wheels or
buffing wheels° They can fly apart explosively.
- To avoid cutting tool failure and thrown shrapnel (broken pieces of blade), use only t0 inch or smaller
blades or' other cutting tools marked for speeds of
5000 rpm or higher..
- Always use unbroken, balanced blades designed to
fit this saw's 5/8 inch arbor.
-When thru-sawing (making cuts where the blade
comes through the workpiece top), always use a 10
inch diameter blade. This keeps the spreader in closest to the blade°
- Do not over tighten arbor nu[ Use arbor wrenches to
"snug" it securely.
- Use only sharp blades with pmpedy set teeth. Consult a professional blade shar;pener when-in doubt.

• Use extra caution with large, very small or awkward
workpieces:
• Use extra supports (tables, saw horses, blocks, etc.)
for any workpieces large enough to tip when not held
down to the table top. Never use another' person as a
substitute for a table extension, or as additional support for' a workpiece that is longer or wider than the
basic saw table, or to help feed, support or pull the
workpiece,
• Never confine the piece being cut off, that is, the piece
not against the fence, miter' gauge or fixture. Never'
hold it, clamp it, touch it, or use length stops against iL
It must be free to move. If confined, it could get
wedged against the blade and cause a kickback or
throwback°
• Never' cut more than one workpiece at a time°
• Never turn your' table saw "ON" before clearing everything except the workpiece and related support
devices off the table°
Plan the way you will push the workpiece tht'ough.

Rip Type Cuts.
Before starting.
• Never use the miter gauge when ripping.
• Use a push stick whenever' the fence is 2 or more
inches from the blade.
o When thru-sawing, use an auxiliary fence and push
block whenever the fence must be between 1/2 and 2
inches of the blade,
° Never {hru-saw dp cuts narrower than 1/2 inch. (See
"Basic Saw Operations-Ripping
and Bevel Ripping"
section o)
, Never rip anything shorter than 10" long..
° When using a push stick or push block, the trailing end
of the board must be square, A push stick or block
against an uneven end could slip off or push the work
away from the fence.
° A Featherboard can help guide the Workpiece._(See
"Basic Saw Operation-Using Featherboards for ThruSawing" section..)

Crosscut
Safety Instructions
For:
Type Cuts.
Before starting.
• Never use the rip fence whan crosscutting.
FEATHERBOARDS
• To avoid kickbacks and slips into the. blade, make sure
the rip fence is parallel to the sawblade.
° Before thru-sawing,
check the anti-kickback pawls.
(See Basic _.aw Ope_t!o_l :,rU+slr!g3_ne,Rip Fence?'
- The pawls must stop a kickback_once it has started°
Replace or sharpen anti-kickback pawls when points
become dullo
++
° Plastic and composition (like hardboard) materials may
be cut on your saw+ However, since these are usually
quite hard and slippery, the anti-kickback pawls may
not stop a kickback. Therefore, be especially careful in
your setup and cutting procedures.
oAn auxiliary wood facing attached to the miter gauge can
help prevent work'piece twisting and throwbacks. Attach it
to the holes provided. Make the facing long enough and
big enough to support your work,, Make sure, however, it
will not interfere with the sawblade guard.
o Use jigs or fixtures to help hold any piece too small to
extend across the full length of the miter gauge face
during the cut. This lets you properly hold the miter
gauge and workpiece and helps keep your hands away
from the blade.
While cutting.
° To avoidblade contact,always ho_ the miter gauge as shown
in "BasicSaw Operations- Using The Miter Gauge".

aMotor Is Overloaded. Ovedoading can occur' if you
feed too rapidly or' make too many start/stops in a
short time.
b.Voltages not more than 10% above or below the
nameplate voltage can handle normal loads. For
heavy loads, however, the voltage at motor terminals
must equal the voltage specified on nameplate.
Overload
Protection
Your saw features a reset overload relay button. If the
motor stops running or fails to start (due to feed pressure too fast, dull blade or' low voltage), turn switch
"OFF", let the motor cool three to five minutes and
push the reset button, which resets the overload
device and allows you to turn the saw back on.
WARNING: The ON/OFF switch should be in the off
position, and the plug removed from the power
source while the cool down takes place to prevent
accidental
starting
when the reset button is
pushed. Overheating may be caused by misaligned
parts or dull blade, Inspect your saw for proper
setup before using it again.
5, Most motor tmubtes may be traced to loose or incorrect connections, overload, low voltage (such as small
size wire in the supply circuit) or to overly long supply
circuit wire.. Always check the connections, the load
and the supply circuit whenever motor' doesn't work
well Check wire sizes and lengttl with the Wire Size
Chart.
Wire Size
NOTE: Make sure the proper extension cord is used and
is in good condition°
The use of any extension cord will cause some loss of
power, To keep this to a minimum and to prevent over'heating and motor burnout, use the table to determine

As you learn new table saw woodworking techniques
you'll see that many types of cuts need different support
and feeding devices, known as jigs or fixtures. They can
help you make cuts more accurately By helping to steady
the workpiece and keep you away from the blade, they
can help you safely use,your saw for certain cuts.
Many people custom build their own jigs and fixtures Jigs
and fixtures are often designed for a particular cut.
NOTE: A!! dimensions
You can use your table saw to easily make many jigs and
fixtures. To get you started, we've included instructions
for some simple ones. After you have made a few practice cuts, make up these jigs before starting any projects.

Safety instructions for Basic Saw Operations
Before
Each Use:
inspect your work area.
° Keep work area clean.
o Cluttered areas and benches invite accidents.. Floor
must not be slippery from wax or sawdust.
Inspect your saw.
o To avoid injury from accidental starting, turn the switch
off, unplug the saw, and remove the switch key before
raising or removing the guard, changing the cutting
tool, changing the setup, or adjusting anything,
° To avoid burns or other fire damage, never use the saw
near flammable liquids, vapors or gases.
- Check for' alignment of moving parts, binding of moving
parts, breakage of parts, saw stability, and any other
conditions that may affect the way the saw works.
° To avoid injury, don't do layout, assembly, or setup
work on the table while blade is spinning° It could cut or
throw anything hitting the blade..
• If any part is missing, bent or' broken in any way, or any
electrical part does not work properly, turn the saw off
and unp ug the.saw.,
"; Replace damaged or missing parts before using the
saw again.
Plan your work.
° Plan ahead to protect your eyes, hands, face, ears..
• Use The Right Tool. Don't force tool or' attachment to
do a job it was not designed for'.
Dress for safety.
, Do not wear loose clothing, gloves, neckties or jewelry
(rings, wrist watches)° They can get caught and draw
you into moving parts.
• Use the sawblade guard, spreader and anti-kickback
pawls for any thru-sawing (whenever the blade comes
through the top of the wo_piece)., Make sure the antikickback pawls work properly. Make sure the spreader'
is in line with sawblade (See page 10-11).
o Wear nonslip footwear:.
° Tie back long hair.
o Make sure all clamps and locks are tight and no parts
have any excessive play_
. Remove adjusting I_eyS and wrenches_ Form a habit of
checking f_r and removing
keys and adjusting
wrenches ft'om table top before turning it on.
° Roll long sleeves above the elbow°
o Noise levels vary widely_ To avoid possible hearing
damage, wear ear plugs or muffs when using table saw
for hours at a time.
o Any power saw can throw foreign objects into the eyes.
This can result in permanent eye damage° Wear safety
goggles (not glasses) that comply with ANSI Z87ol
(shown on package)° Everyday eyeglasses have only
impact resistant lenses.. They are not safety glasses..
Safety goggles are available at Sears retail stores.
Glasses or goggles not in compliance with ANSI Z87_1
could seriously hurt you when they break..
• Make sure all €iamps and iocks are tight and no parts
have excessive play.
" _
"lb avoid injury from jams, slips or thrown pieces
(kickbacks or throwbacks).
Inspect your blade.
° Choose_the right blade or cutting accessory for the
material and the type of cutting you plan to do.
• Never use grinding wheels, abrasive cutoff wheels,
friction wheels (metal cutting blades) wire wheels or
buffing wheels. They can fly apart explosively
° Choose and inspect your cutting tool carefully:
WEAR
- To avoid cutting tool failure and thrown shrapnel (broken pieces of blade), use only 10 inch or smaller
blades or' other cutting tools marked for' speeds of
5000 rpm or higher_
YOUR
° For dusty operations, wear a dust mask along with
safety goggles.,
Inspect your workpiece.
- Always use unbroken, balanced blades designed to
fit this saw's 5/8 inch arbor,
-When thru-sawing (making cuts where the blade
comes through the workpiece top), always use a 10
.inch diameter blade. This keeps the spreader in clos- •
....est to the blader,
Db riot 0_,er tighten arbor' nut.. Use arbor wrenches to
"snug" it securely,
- Use only sharp blades with properly set teeth Consult a professional blade sharpener when in doubt.
- Keep blades clean of gum and resin..
o Never use the saw without the proper blade insert.,
23
• Make sure there are no nails or foreign objects in the
part of the workpiece to be cut,,
• When cutting inegularly shaped workpieces, plan your
work so it will not slip and pinch the blade:
• A piece of molding for example, must lie flat or be held
by a fixture or jig that will not let it twist, rock or s!ip
while being cuL Use jigs or fixtures where needed to
prevent workpiece shifting.,
° Use a different, better' suited type of tool for work that
can't be made stable.
Safety instructions
for Basic Saw Operations (continued)
Avoid accidental starting.
° Make sure switch is "OFF" before plugging saw into a
power outlet.
Plan your cut.
* To avoid kickbacks and throwbacks - when a part or all
of the workpiece binds on the blade and is thrown violently back toward the front of the saw:
Whenever
- Never cut freehand. Always use either a rip fence,
miter gauge or fixture to position and guide the work,
so it won't twist or bind on the blade and kickback.
Sawblade
Is Spinning:
familiarity
(gained
quent use of your table saw) cause a careless mis.
take. AlwaysDon't
remember
lWARNING:
allow that a careless fraction
from of
fre-a
second is enough to cause a severe injury,
- Make sure there's no debris between the workpiece
and its supports.
. Before actually cutting with the saw, watch it while it
runs for a short while. If it makes an unfamiliar noise or
vibrates a lot, stop Zmmediately Turn the saw off.
Unplug the saw= Do not restart until finding and correcting the problem.
° Use extra caution with large, very small or awkward
workpieces:
o Use extra supports (tables, saw horses, blocks, etc.)
for any workpieces large enough to tip when not held
down to the table top.. Never use another person as a
substitute for a table extension, or as additional support for a workpiece that is longer' or wider than the
basic saw table, or to help feed, support or pull the
workpieceo
oMake sure the top of the arbor or cutting tool turns
toward the front of the saw°
Keep children away
• Keep all visitors a safe distance from the table saw
• Make sure bystanders are clear of the table saw and
workpiece.
Don't force tool.
o Never confine the piece being cut off, that is, the piece
not against the fence, miter gauge or fixtureo Never'
hold it, clamp it, touch it, or use length stops against it
It must be free to move. If confined, it could get
wedged against the blade and cause a kickback or
throwback.
• Let the blade reach full speed before cutting.
• It will do the job better and safer at its designed rate.
• Feed the workpiece into the saw oniy fast enough to let
the blade cut without bogging down or binding_
° Never cui more than one workpiece at a time.
o Never' turn your table saw "ON" before clearing everything except the workpiece and related support
devices off the table.
Before freeing jammed material,
• Turn switch "OFF".
o Unplug the saw.
Plan the way you will push the workpiece through.
o Never pull the workpiece through. Start and finish
the cut from the front of the table saw_
o Wait for'all moving parts to stop.
• Check blade, spreader and fence for proper alignment
before starting again..
o Never put your finger's or hands in the path of the
sawblade or other cutting toot.
To avoid throwback
of cut off pieces.
. Use the guard assembly
o Never reach in back of the cutting tool with either
hand to hold down, support the workpiece, remove
wood scraps, or for any other reason_
To remove loose pieces beneath or trapped inside
the guard.
• Turn saw "OFF"
=_.Avoidhand positions where a sudden slip could cause
fingers or hand to move into a sawblade or other cutting tool..
o Don't Overreach.
---.
° Remove switch key.
• Wait for blade to stop before lifting the guard_
Always keep good footing and bat-
Before leaving the saw.
• Turn the saw off
ance_
- Push the workpiece against the rotation of the blade.
Never teed material into the cutting tool from the rear
of the saw
• Wait for blade to stop spinning.
• Unplug the SaWr.
• Make workshop child-proofo Lock the shop_ Disconnect
master switches. Remove the yellow switch key_ Store
it away from children and others not qualified to use
the toot..
o Always push the workpiece all the way past the sawblade.
° As much as possible, keep your face and body to one
side of the sawblade, out of line with a possible kickback or throwback
. Set the cutting tool as low as possible for the cut you're
planning

Basic Saw Operations
NOTE: The space between the miter gauge bar and the
groove in the table is held to a minimum during manufacturing.
Using the Miter Gauge
The miter gauge is used when crosscutting, miter cutting,
bevel cutting, compound miter cutting, dadoing and when
rabbeting across the end of a narrow workpiece.
For maximum accuracy when using the miter gauge,
always favor one side of the groove in the table. In other
words, don't move the miter gauge from side to side while
cutting but keep one side of the bar riding against one
side of the groove.
following safety precautions
in addition to the
I WARNING: For your own safety, always observe the
safety instructions of pages 2, 3, 4, 5, 23 & 24.
NOTE; Glue a piece of sandpaper to the face of the miter
gauge head. This will help prevent the workpiece from
"creeping" while it is being cut.
Additional Safety Instructions for Crosscutting
Before Starting:
Never use the rip fence when crosscutting..
• An auxiliary wood facing attached to the miter gauge
can hetp prevent workpiece twisting and throwbacks.
Attach it to the holes provided. Make the facing long
enough and big enough to support your work. Make
sure, however, it will not interfere with the sawblade
guard.
WARNING; To avoid blade contact
hold miter gauge properly. •
.
I
When using the miter gauge in the left hand groove, hold
the workpiece firmly against gauge head with your left
hand, and grip the lock knob with your right hand.
When using the miter gauge in the dght hand groove,
hold the workpiece with your right hand and the lock knob
with your left hand.
° Use jigs or fixtures to hetp hold arty piece too small to
extend across the full length of the miter gauge face
during the cut. This lets you proPerly hold the miter
gauge and workpiece and helps keep your hands away
from the blade.
Miter' gauge head is locked in position for crosscutting or
mitering by tightening the lock knob, Always lock it
securely when in use.
Holes are provided in the miter gauge for attaching an
auxiliary facing to make it easier to cut long pieces. Make
sure facing does not interfere with the proper operation of
the sawblade guard.
• Use extra supports such as plywood clamped to a
sawhorse for workpieces that ar_ long and heavy
enough to tip or that tend to raise the miter gage from
the groove in the table, never use another person as a
substitute for a support or to help feed or' pull the workpiece.
Select a suitable piece of smooth straight wood, drill two
holes through it and attach it with screws,.
While cutting:
• To avoid blade contact, always hold the miter gauge as
shown in this section.

Repetitive Crosscutting
Repetitive cutting is known as cutting a quantity of pieces
the same length without having to mark each piece.
• When making repetitive cuts from a long workpiece,
make sure it is supported,
WARNING" Never' use the rip fence as a length stop I
because the cutoff piece could bind between the i
fence and the blade causing a kickback.
J
1. When making repetitive cuts, clamp a block of wood 3"
long to the table at desired length to act as a length
stop,,
I WARNING: To avoid kickback from twisting the I
I workpiece, when clamping the block, make sure
I that the end of the block is well in front of the sawI blade. Be sure it is clamped securely.
l
2. Slide the workpiece along the miter gauge until it
touches tire btock.o.hold the workpiece securely
against the miter gauge,
3. Make the cut...tum the saw off_xemove the piece after
the blade has stopped and before cutting the next piece_
Miter Crosscutting
Miter' cutting is an angle cutting operation made across
the width of the workpieceo Follow the same procedure as
you would for crosscutting.
• Adjust the miter gauge to the desired angle, and lock it.
o The miter gauge may be used in either of the grooves
in the table. Make sure it is locked,
• When using the miter gauge in the left hand groove,
hold the workpiece firmly against the miter gauge head
with your left hand, and grip the lock knob with your
right hand.
o When using the miter gauge in the right hand groove,
hold the workpiece with your right hand and the lock
knob with your' left hand.
Bevel
Crosscutting
Bevel crosscutting is the same as crosscutting except
that the wood is also cut at an angle.o.other than 90 ° with
the bottom flat side of the wood.
oAdjust the blade to the desired angle,
• Always use the miter gauge in the groove to the right of
the blade. It cannot be used in the groove to the left
because the blade guard will intedere. Hold the workpiece with your right hand and the lock knob with your
left hand

Compound
Miter Crosscutting
Compound miter cutting is a combination of miter cutting
and bevel crosscutting,. The cut is made at an angle other
than 90 ° to both the edge and the bottom flat side of the
wood.
Adjust the miter gauge and tile blade to the desired
angle_,oMake sure miter' gauge is locked.
o Always use the miter' gauge in the groove to the right of
the blade. It cannot beused in the groove to the left
because the blade guard will interfere.. Hold the workpiece with your' right hand and tile lock knob with your

Using the Rip Fence
Additional Safety Instructions for Rip Cuts
Before starting:
• Never use the miter gauge when ripping
• Use a push stick whenever the fence is 2 or more
inches from the blade.
i-_---------
• When thru-sawing, use an auxiliary fence and push
block whenever the fence must be between 1/2 and 2
inches from the blade_
KERFS ABOUT

o Never thru-saw rip cuts narrower than 1/2 .inch. (See
"Basic Saw Operations-Ripping
and Bevel Ripping"
section).
Featherboard
o Never rip anything shorter than 10'Uong.
oWhen using a push stick or push block, the trailing end
of the workpiece must be square. A push stick or push
block against an uneven end could slip off or push the
workpiece away from the fence,.
=A featherboard can help guide tile workpiece_ (see
"Basic Saw Operation-Using Featherboards for ThruSawing.," section)
° Always use featherboards for' any non thru-sawing rip
type cuts. (see "Basic Saw Operations-Using Featherboards for Non Thru-sawing" section)
oTo avoid kickbacks and slips into the blade, make sure
the rip fence is parallel to the sawblade,
° Before thru-sawing, check the anti-kickback pawls., the
pawls must stop a kickback once it has started°
Replace or sharpen anti-kickback pawls when points
become dullo
o Plastic and composition (like hardboard) materials may
be cut on your saw_ However, since these are usually
quite hard and slippery, the anti-kickback pawls may
not stop a kickback. Therefore, be especially careful in
your set-up and cutting procedures.
While Thru-sawing:
:,
oTo avoid kickbacks and slips ir_to the blade, always
push forward on the section of the workpiece between
the sawblade and the rip fence,, Never push forward on
the piece being cut off.
