MK-100 Tile Saw
Safety
SILICA DUST WARNING
Grinding/cutting/drilling of masonry, concrete, metal and other materials with silica in their composition
may give off dust or mists containing crystalline silica. Silica is a basic component of sand, quartz,
brick clay, granite and numerous other minerals and rocks. Repeated and/or substantial inhalation of
airborne crystalline silica can cause serious or fatal respiratory diseases, including silicosis. In addition, California and some other authorities have listed respirable crystalline silica as a substance
known to cause cancer. When cutting such materials, always follow respiratory precautions.
Use appropriate NIOSH-approved respiratory protection where dust hazard may occur. Paper masks
or surgical masks without a NIOSH approval number are not recommended because they do little to
protect the worker. For more information about respirator programs, including what respirators have
received NIOSH approval as safe and effective, please visit the NIOSH website at:
http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/topics/respirators
Observe OSHA regulations for respirator use (29 C.F.R.§1910.134).
Visit http://www.osha.gov for more information.
CALIFORNIA PROPOSITION 65 MESSAGE
Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities contain chemicals known (to the State of California) to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive
harm. Some examples of these chemicals are:
• Lead, from lead-based paints
• Crystalline silica from bricks, cement and other masonry products
• Arsenic and chromium, from chemically treated lumber
For further information, consult the following sources:
http://www.osha.gov/dsg/topics/silicacrystalline/index.html
http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/docs/96-112/
http://oehha.ca.gov/prop65/law/P65law72003.html
http://www.dir.ca.gov/Title8/sub4.html
Your risk from these exposures varies depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce
your exposure to these chemicals, work in a well-ventilated area, and work with approved safety
equipment, such as dust masks that are specially designed to filter out microscopic particles. Where
((
ON
))
use of a dust extraction
device is possible, it should be used. To achieve a high level of dust collection, use an industrial
HEPA vacuum cleaner. Observe OSHA 29 CFR part 1926.57 and 1926.103.
WARNING
Sawing, grinding and drilling generate dust. Excessive airborne particles may cause irritation to eyes, skin and respiratory
tract. To avoid breathing impairment, always employ dust controls and protection suitable to the material being sawed or
drilled; See OSHA (29 CFR Part 1910.1200).

ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS AND GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
))
ON
((
In order to prevent electrical shock and injury, the following electrical safety precautions and symbols
should be followed at all times!
WARNING
In case of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electrical
current to reduce the risk of electric shock. This tool is equipped with an electric cord which has 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.
• Do not modify the plug provided - if it will not fit the outlet, have the proper outlet
installed by a qualified electrician.
• Improper connections of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock. The equipment-grounding conductor is the insulated conductor that has an outer surface that is green, with or without yellow stripes. If repair or replacement of the electric cord or plug is necessary, do not connect the equipment-grounding conductor to a live terminal.
• 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.
• Use only 3-wire extension cords that have 3-prong grounding plugs and 3-pole receptacles that accept the tool’s plug.
• Repair or replace a damaged or worn cord immediately.
This tool is intended for use on a circuit that has an outlet that looks like the one shown in Sketch A.
The tool has a grounding plug that looks like the plug illustrated in Sketch A. A temporary adapter,
which looks like the adapter illustrated in sketches B and C, may be used to connect this plug to a
2-pole receptacle as shown in Sketch B, 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, plug, and the like, extending from the adapter, must be connected
to a permanent ground, such as a properly grounded outlet box.

measure of safety. When using an extension cord, GFCI should be installed closest to the power
source, followed by the extension cord and lastly, the machine.
WARNING
The water pump requires a GFCI. To reduce risk of electrical shock when operating the machine
with the pump plugged into the 3-pole receptacle on the motor, connect the machine to a GFCI
outlet. See the pump manual and informational tags enclosed separately for all pump information.

Safety
((
MK-100

WARNING
To avoid the possibility of the appliance or plug receptacle getting wet, position the machine to one side of a wall mounted receptacle. This will prevent water from dripping into the receptacle or plug. A
"drip loop," shown in the picture below, should be arranged by the user to properly position the power cord relative to the power source. Use the drip loop as a way to prevent GFCI and plug from getting
wet.
The "drip loop" is that part of the cord below the level of the receptacle (or the connector, if an extension cord is used). This method of positioning the cord prevents the travel of water along the power
cord and coming in contact with the receptacle.
If the plug or receptacle gets wet, DO NOT unplug the cord. Disconnect the fuse or circuit breaker
that supplies power to the tool. Then unplug and examine for presence of water in the receptacle.

Drip Loop Information
WARNING
Use only extension cords that are intended for outdoor use. These extension cords are
identified by a marking "Acceptable for use with outdoor appliances; store indoors while not
in use." Use only extension cords having an electrical rating not less than the rating of the
product. Do not use damaged extension cords. Examine extension cords before using and
replace if damaged. Do not abuse extension cords and do not yank on any cord to disconnect. Keep cords away from heat and sharp edges. Always disconnect the extension cord
from the receptacle before disconnecting the product from the extension cord.
ALWAYS make certain that the power source required for the electric motor is correct and always
use the correct NEMA configuration plug. Motors can burn out when the line voltage falls 10% below
the voltage rating of the motor. Failure to use proper voltage will cause the motor to overheat. Make
certain that the correct size grounded (3-wires) extension cord is used.

MAINTENANCE
Blade Dressing
Like most cutting instruments, a diamond blade performs best when it is dressed. Over time and use,
diamonds on the outer edge of the blade may become smoothed or "glazed" over. This will reduce
grinding efficiency and may cause the blade to "wander" or bend giving the illusion of an alignment
problem. When this occurs, the blade will need to be dressed. The diamond blade can be dressed
using the MK Dressing Stick (MK Diamond part number 152972) and by following the steps below.
(A)
Cut the Dressing Stick 7 or 8
times to dress the Blade.
Diamond Blade Change-out

MK-100 TILE SAW THEORY
THEORY OF DIAMOND BLADES
Diamond blades do not really cut; they grind the material through friction. Diamond crystals, often
visible at the leading edge and sides of the rim/segment, remove material by scratching out particles of hard, dense materials, or by knocking out larger particles of loosely bonded abrasive material. This process eventually cracks or fractures the diamond particle, breaking it down into smaller
pieces. As a result, a diamond blade for cutting soft, abrasive material must have a hard metal
matrix composition to resist this erosion long enough for the exposed diamonds to be properly utilized. Conversely, a blade for cutting a hard, non-abrasive material must have a soft bond to ensure
that it will erode and expose the diamonds embedded in the matrix. These simple principles are the
foundation of “controlled bond erosion”
Types of Cutting
There are two basic types of cutting-Dry or Wet. The choice of which type of blade to use
depends on:
• The requirements of the job
• The machine/tool utilizing the Diamond Blade
• The preference of the operator
In the case of DRY cutting, the overwhelming popularity and quantity of hand-held saws and the
flexible nature of MK Diamond blades to professionally handle most ceramic, masonry, stone and
concrete materials, make the DRY cutting blade a very attractive tool. When using a DRY blade,
the user must be aware of distinct operating practices to ensure optimum performance. DRY cutting
blades require sufficient airflow about the blade to prevent overheating of the steel core. This is best
accomplished by shallow, intermittent cuts of the material with periods of “free-spinning” (for several
seconds) between each cut, to maximize the cooling process.
For WET cutting applications, MK has the exact blade to compliment both the material to be cut and
the wet cutting machine to be used. During cutting operations, liberal amounts of water act as a
coolant to support the cutting effectiveness and longevity of the WET blade. Additionally, using water
adds to the overall safety of cutting operations by keeping the dust signature down.
