EXTENSION
CORDS
GROUNDING
Use only 3-wire extension cords that have 3-prong
grounding plugs and 3-pole receptacles that accept
the tool's plug. When using a power tool at a considerable distance from the power source, use an
extension cord. heavy enough to carry the current that
the tool will drew. An undersized extension cord will
cause a drop in line voltage, resulting in a loss of
power and causing the motor to overheat. Use the
chart provided below to determine the minimum wire
size required in an extension cord. Only round jacketed cords listed by Underwriter's Laboratories (UL)
should be used.
Length of Extension Cord
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 equipmentgrounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug
must be plugged into a matching outlet that is prepedy
installed and grounded in accordance with all local
codes and ordinances.
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 equipmentgrounding conductor can result in a 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.

INSTRUCTIONS
When working with the tool outdoors, use an extension cord that is designed for outside use. This is
indicated by the letters WA on the cord's jacket.
Before using an extension cord, inspect it for loose or
exposed wires and cut or worn insulation.
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.
_1= CAUTION: Keep the cord away from the cutting
area and position the cord so that it will not be
caught on lumber, tools, or other objects during
cutting operations.
Repair or replace a damaged or worn cord immediately.
This tool is intended for use on a circuit that has an
ELECTRICAL
outlet like the one shown in Figure 1. It also has a
grounding pin like the one shown.
CONNECTION
Your Sears Craftsman Table Saw is powered by a
precision built electric motor. It should be connected
to a power supply that is 120 volts, 60 Hz, AC only
(normal household current). It should be connected
to a 240 volt power supply only if it has been reset
according to the instructions in this manual. The
motor has been set at the factory for 120 volts; if it is
reconnected to operate at 240 volts, all attachment
plugs and any receptacles must be replaced with
devices rated for 240 volts. Do not operate this tool on
direct current (DC). A substantial voltage drop will
cause a loss of power and the motor will overheat. If
the saw does not operate when plugged into an
outlet, double check the power supply.
SPEED
_i,
WARNING:
Instructions are given in the
Assembly section for changing the motor voltage
to 240 volts. Follow them carefully .. Electrical
shock can kill.
AND WIRING
The no-loed speed of your table saw is approximately
3,600 rpm. This speed is not constant and decreases
under a load or with lower voltage. For voltage, the
wiring in a shop is as important as the motor's horsepower rating. A line intended only for lights cannot
properly carry a power tool motor. Wire that is heavy
enough for a short distance will be too light for a
greater distance. A line that can support one power
tool may not be able to support two or three tools.

CRAFTSMAN" TABLESAW315.228410
Assembly is best done in the area where the saw will be used. When you remove the table saw base, loose
parts, and hardware from the packing materials, check all items with the loose parts list and drawing. If you are
unsure about the description of any part, refer to the drawing. If any parts are missing, delay assembling until
you have obtained the missing part(s).
INSTALLING
HANDWHEELS
ON SAW BASE
Note: If you mount the saw base on a bench instead
of the legs, go to the Assembling Table Extensions procedure. The bench surface must have
an opening for sawdust to fall through, as large
as the opening in the bottom of the saw base, A
height of 36 in. from the top of the saw table to
the floor is recommended.
See Figure 6.
•
Each handwheel bag contains a metal handwheel,
a screw (3/16-24 x 112 in.), and a fiat washer
(3/16 in.).
•
Align the handwheels to the shaft ends that extend
from the front and right side of the table sawbase.
Match the flat spots on the shaft and inside the
handwheel. Insert a screw and a fiat washer in the
handwheel center and tighten with a 4 mm hex key.

WARNING:
The table extensions not only
provide a better cut on the workpiece but help
protect you. Serious injury can result from
workpiece binding or kickback due to twisted
rails or a misaligned rip fence.
A good alignment allows the roils to slide on easily.
• Stand at the front of the saw and line up the front
edges of the table and extensions.
With the saw upside down. align the extensions
with the table with the bevel edges in front. Put a
flat washer on each bolt. Attach the extensions to
the table by inserting the bolts from the direction of
the table.

WARNING:
The extensions are very heavy. Do
not lift the saw table without help. Keep your
knees bent and lift with your legs, not your back.
Ignoring these precautions can result in back
injury.
•
To align extensions without damaging the table
saw, put a block of wood at the front of the table
where the extension meets the table, and tap the
block with a hammer. Check and repeat until the
front edges are even.
•
Lift each extension slightly until it is higher than the

BASIC
OPERATION
OF THE TABLE
SAW
A table saw can be used for straight-line cutting
operations such as cross cutting, ripping, mitering,
beveling, compound cutting, and resawing. It can
make dado or molding cuts with optional accessories.
The three-prong plug must be plugged into a matching outlet that is properly installed and grounded
according to all local codes and ordinances. Improper
connection of the equipment can result in electric
shock. Check with an electrician or service personnel
if you are unsure about proper grounding. Do not
modify the plug; if it will not fit the outlet, have the
correct outlet installed by a qualified electrician. Refer
to the Electrical page of this manual.
•
To avoid pinching the blade, support the work
properly before beginning a cut.
•
When making a cut, use steady, even pressure.
Never force cuts.
•
Do not cut wet or warped lumber.
•
Always hold your workpiece firmly with both hands
or with pushsticks. Keep your body in a balanced
position to be ready to resist kickback should it
occur. Never stand directly in line with the blade.
•
Use the right type of blade for the cut being made.
CUTTING
See Figure 47.
Pushsticks are devices used for safely pushing a
workpiece through the blade instead of using your
hands. They can be made in various sizes and
shapes from scrap wood to use in a specific project.
The stick must be narrower than workplace, with a 90"
notch in one end and shaping for a grip on other end.
Note: This table saw is designed to cut wood and
wood composition products only.
CAUSES OF KICKBACK
Kickback can occur when the blade stalls or binds,
kicking the workpiece back toward you with great
force and speed. If your hands are near the sawblade,
they may be jerked loose from the workpiece and may
contact the blade. Obviously, kickback can cause
serious injury, and it is well worth using precautions to
avoid the risks.
A pushblock has a handle fastened by recessed
screws from the underside. Use it on non-threugh
cuts.
_i,
Kickback can be caused by any action that pinches
the blade in the wood, such as the following:
•
Making a cut with incorrect blade depth
•
Sawing into knots or nails in the workpiece
•
Twisting the wood while making a cut
•
Failing to support work
•
Forcing a cut
•
Cutting warped or wet lumber
•
Using the wrong blade for the type of cut
•
Not following correct operating procedures
•
Misusing the saw
•
Failing to use the anti-kickback pawls
•
Cutting with a dull, gummed-up, or improperly set
blade
Always use the correct blade depth setting. The top
of the blade teeth should clear the workpiece by
118 in. to 1/4 in.
•
Inspect the work for knots or nails before beginning
a cut. Knock out any loose knots with a hammer.
Never saw into a loose knot or nail.
•
Always use the rip fence when rip cutting and the
miter gage when cross cutting. This helps prevent
twisting the wood in the cut.
•
Always use clean, sharp, and properly-set blades.
Never make cuts with dull blades.
CAUTION: Be sure the screw is recessed to
avoid damaging the saw or workpiece.

A featherboard is a device used to help control the
workplace by guiding it securely against the table or
fence. Featherboards are especially useful when
ripping small workpieces and for completing nonthrough cuts.The end is angled, with a number of
short kerfs to give a friction hold on the workpiece.
Lock it in place on the table with a C-clamp. Test that
it could resist kickback.

CAUSES
OVERLOAD
OF OVERLOAD
Overload and overheating result from a number of
sources. Always check the connections, the load and
the supply circuit if motor performance is not satisfactory. Check wire sizes and length in the chart below.
Refer to the Electrical page and check your work area
for problem conditions such as the following:
See Figure 48.
Your table saw is equipped with an overloed protector
to shut off the saw when a power circuit limit is
reached and the motor temperature begins to rise.
Otherwise, overheating can occur and cause poor
performance, machine damage or fire. Be prepared to
deal with overload should it occur, first in the immediate situation and then in locating the cause.
•
Loose or incorrect connections (see Connecting
the Motor and Changing the Motor Voltage in the
Assembly section)
If the motor overheats, the ovefloed protector shuts
down the power. Use the steps listed below to restart.
•
Wrong type of plug (use only 3-prong grounding
type) or receptacle (matching receptacle for 3prong plug)
•
•
Reduced input voltage (too small a wire or too
many items on the circuit)
•
Extension cord is too long or wrong type (use only
outdoor extension cords sized by the chad.)
•
Using a dull blade or forcing a cutting operation.
Turn the switch off to eliminate any possibility of
the blade restarting when the motor has cooled.
Remove any objects, including the workplece, from
contact with the blade to prevent binding when you
do rested operation.
u
WARNING:
If the overload protector shuts off,
immediately tum the saw switch off and remove
anything contacting the blade to prevent the risk
of injury. When the motor cools off, it could
unexpectedly restart the blade, throwing an
object or cutting your hand if you are touching
the blade.
•
Allow time for the motor to cool. You may have to
let the motor cool for as long as it had run before
the protector shut it down.
•
While the motor is cooling, refer to the section

TYPES
OF CUTS
See Figure 49.
There are six basic cuts: 1) the cross cut, 2) the rip
cut, 3) the miter cut, 4) the bevel cross cut, 5) the
bevel rip cut, and 6) the compound (bevel) miter cut.
All other cuts are combinations of these basic operations. Operating procedures for making each kind of
cut are given later in this section.
CROSSCUT
Q
_1= WARNING: Always make sure the blade guard
and anti-kickback pawls are in place and working
properly when making these cuts to avoid
possible injury.
RIP CUT
Q
Cross cuts are straight 90" cuts made across the grain
of the workpiece. The wood is fed into the cut at a 90"
angle to the blade, and the blade is vertical.
MITERCUT
Rip cuts are made with the grain of the wood. To
avoid kickback while making a rip cut, make sure one
side of the wood rides firmly against the rip fence.
®
The rip fence features a micro-adjust knob, which
allows for precise adjustments of the rip fence and
fine tolerances in the woodwork.
Miter cuts are made with the wood at any angle to the
blade other than 90 °. The blade is vertical. Miter cuts
tend to "creep" away from the miter fence during
cutting. This can be controlled by holding the
workpiece securely against the miter fence.
_.
BEVELRIP CUT
WARNING: Always use a push stick with small
pteces of wood, and also to finish the cut when
ripping a long narrow piece of wood, to prevent
your hands from getting close to the blade.
®
COMPOUND(BEVEL)MITERCUT
Bevel cuts are made with an angled blade. Bevel
cross cuts are across the wood grain, and bevel rip
cuts are with the grain. The rip fence must always be
on the right side of the blade for bevel rip cuts.
Fig. 49
Compound (or bevel) miter cuts are made with an
angled blade on wood that is angled to the blade. Be
thoroughly familiar with making straight cross cuts, rip
cuts, bevel cuts, and miter cuts before trying a compound miter cut.

WARNING: All blades and cutting accessories
must be rated for at least 5,000 rpm to prevent
possible injury.
