1. Choose the right 10-inch diameter blade for
the material and the type of cutting you plan
to do, Use this miter saw to cut only wood,
wood-like
products
or soft
metals
like
aluminum
Other materials may shatter, grab
at the blade, or create other dangers.
2. Make sure the direction of rotation arrow on
the blade matches the direction arrow on the
saw, The blade teeth should always point
downward at the front of the Saw
3. Make sure the blade is sharp, undamaged
and properly aligned. With the saw unplugged,
push the power-head all the way down. Hand
spin the blade and check for clearace. Tilt the
power-head
to 45 degree bevel and repeat
the check. If the blade hits anything,

EACH USE:
1. Inspect your saw. If any part of this miter saw is
missing, or bent, or has failed in any way, or any
electrical parts don't work properly, turn the saw off
and unplug the saw. Replace damaged, missing, or
failed parts before using the saw again.
2. Plan Your Work to protect your eyes, hands,
face, ears.
a. Wear safety goggles (not glasses) that comply

9. Never cut FREEHAND:
a.
Brace your workpiece solidly against the
fence and table top so it will not rock or
twist during the cut. Make sure no debris
is caught beneath the workpiece.
b. Make sure no gaps between the workpiece, fence and table will let the workpiece
shift after it is cut in two.
c. Use jigs, fixtures or a different
stable workpieces
tool for un3
10. Never out more than one workpiece at a time.
11. Make sure the cut off piece can move sideways after it's cut off. Otherwise, it could
get wedged against the blade and thrown
violently.
12. Use extra caution with large, very small or
awkward workpieces:
a. Use extra supports (tables, saw horses,
blocks, etc.) for any workpieces large
enough to tip when not held down to the
table top.
b. Do not use this saw to cut pieces too
small to let you easily hold the work while
you keep the thumb side of your index
(pointer) finger against the outside edge
of the fence.
c. When cutting irregularly shaped workpieces, plan your work so it wil! not slip
and pinch the blade. A piece of molding,
for exarnple, must tie flat or be held by a
fixture or jig that will not let it twisL rock
or slip while being cut.
d. Properly support round material such as
dowel rods, or tubing. They have a tendency to roll while being cut, causing the
blade to "bite." To avoid this, always use
a fixture designed to properly hold your
work piece.
13. Make sure there are no nails or foreign objects in the part of the workpiece to be cut.
14. Make sure bystanders are clear of the tool
and workpiece. Keep them clear of the area
behind the saw where debris will be thrown.
15. Never turn your miter saw "ON" before clearing everything except the workpiece and
related support devices off the table.
d. To avoid risk of hearing damage, wear ear plugs
or muffs during extended periods of operation.
e. To avoid being suddenly pulled into the blade:
1. Do not wear gloves.
2. Remove all jewelry and loose clothing.
3. Tie back long hair.
f. To avoid injury from accidental
starting, always
unplug saw before disconnecting
the guard, installing
or removing
any blade, accessory
or
attachment,
or making any adjustments.
g. To avoid an electrical
shock, make sure your
fingers do not touch the metal prongs on the plug
when inserting or removing
the plug to or from
a live outlet.
h. Never put lubricants

5. Most motor troubles 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 length with
the Wire Size Chart below,
WIRE SIZES
For orcuits that are farther than 100 feet away from
electrical service box, the w_re s_ze must be increased
proportionately in order to deliver ample voltage to the
saw motor.
The use of any extension cord will Cause some loss of

Depth Stop
The depth stop limits the blades downward travel, It
allows the blade to go below the work table enough to
maintain full cutting capacities. The depth stop positions
the blade 1/4"from the cast iron table support. The depth
stop is factory set and should never need adjustment.
Maintaining Maximum Cutting Capacity
WARNING: TO AVOID INJURY FROM UNEXPECTED
STARTING OR ELECTRICAL SHOCK, DO NOT PLUG
THE SAW IN. THE POWER CORD MUST REMAIN
UNPLUGGED WHENEVER YOU ARE WORKING ON
THE SAW.
Unplug the saw before any adjustment is attempted.
This tool is factory set to provide maximum cutting
capacity for the 10" saw blade provided. When the
diameter of the blade has been reduced due to sharpening, it may be necessary to adjust depth stop to provide
maximum cutting capacity, When a new blade is installed, it is necessary to check the clearance of the
blade to the turn table structure.
1. To adjust the depth stop use an adjustable wrench
and loosen the hex nut at the rear of the miter
saw arm.
2. Use a flat blade screwdriver to adjust the depth stop
adjusting bolt. The saw blade is lowered by turning
the bolt counterclockwise and raised by turning the
bolt clockwise.

WARNING: DO NOT START THE MITER SAW WITHOUT CHECKING FOR INTERFERENCE BETWEEN
THE BLADE AND THE TURN TABLE STRUCTURE.
DAMAGE COULD RESULT TO THE BLADE IF IT
STRIKES THE TURN TABLE STRUCTURE DURING
OPERATION OF THE SAW.
4. Tighten the hex nut with an adjustable wrench while
carefully holding the depth stop adjusting bolt with
the flat blade screwdriver so it will not turn while
tightening hex nut.

FencePositions
Themiter saw has two
fence positions. The front fence
position is used for workpieces up to standard 2 x 4 for
cut off and bevel operation, floor and ceiling moldings,
and door casings. The rear fence position is used
for cut off and bevel operation for a standard 2 x 6
workpiece.
Standard 2 x 4 measures 11/2"x 31/2''
Standard 2 x 6 measures 1!/2'' x 5'/2"
The base on either side of the work table has two sets
of holes for locating the fence. To change the fence
position, remove the two fence lock handles. Put the
fence in the other fence position and install the fence
lock handles.
The rear fence position is designed to slide side to side
when the miter setting is changed. This feature lets the
fence move to provide maximum support for the workpiece. If it is necessary to change the miter cut in the
rear position first loosen the rip fence lock handles.
Release the miter lock handle and move it to the desired
miter angle. Tighten the miter lock handle and the fence
lock handles.
CAUTION: Do not try to change the miter position
while the fence is in the rear fence position before
loosening the fence lock handles. You might damage the fence alignment arm.

a. Braceyourworkpiece

andtabletop so it will notrockor twistduring
the cut.Makesurethereis no debriscaught
beneaththeworkpiece.
b. Make sure no gaps between the workpiece,
fence and table will cause shifting after the workpiece is cut in two.
c. Use jigs, fixtures or a different tool for unstable
workpieces.
8. Never cut more than one workpiece at a time.
9. Make sure the cut off piece can move sideways
after it's cut off. Otherwise, it could get wedged
against the blade and thrown violently.
10. Use extra caution with large, very small or awkward
workpieces:
a. Use extra supports (tables, saw horses, blocks,
etc.) for any workpieces large enough to tip
when not held down to the table top.
b. Do not use this saw to cut pieces too small to
let you easily hold the work while you keep the
thumb side of your index (pointer) finger against
the outside edge of the fence
c. When cutting irregularly 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 slip while being cut.
d. Properly support round material such as dowel
rods, or tubing. They have a tendency to roll
while being cut, causing the blade to ."bite." To
avoid this, use a fixture designed to properly
hold your work piece.
11. Make sure there are no nails or foreign objects in
the part of the workpiece to be cut.
12. Make
sure bystanders
are clear of the tool and
workpiece.
Keep them clear of the area behind the
saw where debris will be thrown.
Body and Hand Position
Proper positioning of your body and hands when operating the miter saw will make cutting easier and safer.
Never place hands near cutting area. Place hand at
least 4" from path of blade Hold workpiece firmly to
the fence to prevent movement toward the blade. Keep
hands in position until trigger has been released and
the blade has completely stopped. Before making a
cut, make a "dry run" with the power off so you can see
the path of the blade.
WARNING: DO NOT TRY TO CUT SHORT PIECES.
YOU CANNOT PROPERLY SUPPORT THE WORKPIECE AND KEEP YOUR HOLD DOWN HAND THE
REQUIRED DISTANCE FROM THE BLADE.
16
13, Never turn your miter saw "ON" before clearing
everything except the workpiece and related support devices off the table.
14. To avoid risk of hearing damage, wear ear plugs
or muffs during extended periods of operation.
15. To avoid being suddenly pulled into the blade:
a. Do not wear gloves.
b. Remove all jewelry and loose clothing.
c. Tie back long hair.
d. Roll long sleeves above the elbow.
16. To avoid burns or other fire damage, never use the
saw near flammable liquids, vapors or gases,
WHENEVER
SAW IS RUNNING:
17. Before actually cutting with the saw, let it run for a
while. If your saw makes an unfamiliar
noise or if
it vibrates excessively,
stop immediately. Turn the
saw off. Unplug the saw. Do not restart until findin 9

slip
20. Let the blade reach full speed before cutting.
21. Feed the saw into the workpiece only fast enough
to let the blade cut without bogging down or binding.
22. Before freeing jammed material, release switch and
unplug the saw. Wait for all moving parts to stop
23. After finishing a cut, keep holding the power-head
down, release the switch, and wait for all moving
parts to stop before moving your hands.
MiterCut
Whena miter
cut is required, move the saw to the
desired angle. Do not stand in front of the saw table.
Move with the handle to the miter angle to make the cut.
NOTE: Remember to loosen the fence lock handles
before changing the miter angle with the fence in the
rear position.
Bevel Cut
When a bevel cut is required, tilt the blade to desired
bevel angle. Stand to the left side of the handle to make
the cut.
17
CompoundCut
When a compound cut is required, select the correct
bevel and miter position. Move with the handle to the
miter angle to make the cut. If the fence is in the rear
position, loosen the two lock handles before changing
the miter angle.
Cutting Bowed Material
Before cutting a workpiece, check to make sure it is
not bowed. If it is bowed the workpiece must be
positioned and cut as illustrated. Do not position workpiece incorrectly or try 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
18
INCORRECT
Workpiece Support
Long pieces need extra supports. The supports should
be placed along the workpiece so the workpiece does
_not sag and your hand holding the 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.

Auxiliary Fence
Certain types of-molding need a fence face extension
due to the size and position of the workpiece. Holes
are provided in the fence to attach an auxiliary fence
made of straight wood typically 1/2inch thick by 3 inches
high by 20 inches long. The auxiliary fence is used with
the saw in the 0 ° bevel position. If a bevel cut is desired,
the auxiliary fence will have to be removed.

Filler Blocks for Cutting Crown Moldings
The majority of crown moldings have contact surfaces
of 52 ° and 38 ° to the rear surface of the molding, When
joining the face of the filler block these angles must be
maintained. The following illustrations
show two
methods that can be used when cutting crown moldings
depending on how the filler block is attached to the
fence.
When the filler blocks are attached with the face of the
filler blocks pointing upwards, the molding must be
placed on the table upside down.
When the filler blocks are attached to the fence with
the face of the filler blocks pointing downwards, the
molding must be placed on the table right side up. This
is the same position as it would be when nailed between
the ceiling and wall.
Make 2 filler blocks 10 inches long. Fasten blocks securely to fence, For btock face pointing downward, you
may need to drill new fastener holes in the fence.
