Double insulation does not take the
place of normal safety precautions
when operating this tool,
- -To avoid electrocution:
1. Use only identical replacement parts
when servicing a tool with double _:
insulation. Servicing should be : .
performed by a qualified technician.
2. Do not use power tools in wet or
damp locations or expose them to
- rain or snow.
To avoid electrical hazards, fire
hazards, or damage to the tool, use
proper circuit protection. Your saw
is wired at the factory for 120 V
operation. Connect to a 120 V, 15A
circuit and use a 15 A time delay
fuse or circuit breaker. To avoid
shock or fire, if power cord is worn
or cut, or damaged in any way, have
it replaced immediately.
DOUBLE INSULATED []
The power tool is double insulated to
provide a double thickness of insulation
between you and tool's electrical
system. All exposed metal parts are
isolated from the internal metal motor
components with protecting insulation.
MOTOR SAFETY PROTECTION
IMPORTANT
To avoid motor damage, the motor
should be blown out or vacuumed
frequently to keep sawdust from
interfering with the motor ventilation.
1. Connect this saw to a 120 V circuit.
This circuit must not be less than a
#14 wire with a 15 A time lag fuse.
NOTE: When using an extension
cord on a circuit with a #14 wire, the
extension cord must not exceed 25
feet in length.
2. If the motor will not start, release
the trigger switch immediately.
UNPLUG THE SAW. Check the saw
blade to make sure it turns freely. If
the blade is free, try to start the saw
again. If the motor still does not start,
refer to the TROUBLESHOOTING
GUIDE.
3. If the t0ol suddenly stalls while
cutting wood, release the trigger
switch, unplug the tool and free
the blade from the wood. The saw
maynow be started and the cut
finished.
Replacement parts - When servicing,
use only identical replacement parts.
Polarized plugs - This saw has a plug
that looks like the one shown below:
To reduce the risk of electrical shock,
this saw has a polarized plug (one
blade is wider than the other). This plug
will fit in a polarized outlet only one

:
4. FUSES may "blow" or circuit
breakers may trip frequently if:
a. MOTOR is overloaded overloading can occur if you feed
too rapidly or make too many
start/stops in a short time.
b. LINE VOLTAGE is more
than 10% above or below the
nameplate voltage rating. For
heaw loads, the voltage at motor
_ terminals must equal the voltage
specified on the nameplate.
C. IMPROPER or dull saw blades
are used.
5. Most motor troubles may be traced
to loose or incorrect connections,
overload, !oWvoltage or inadequate
power supplywiring. Always check
the connections, the load and
supply circuit if the motor doesn't
run well. Check minimum gauge for
the length of cord you are using on
the chart below.
Use a separate electrical circuit
for your tools. This circuit must not
be less than a #14 wire with a 15 A
time lag fuse. NOTE: When using
an extension cord on a circuit with
a #14 wire, the extension cord must
not exceed 25 feet in length. Before
connecting the tool to the power line,
make sure the switch is in the OFF
position and the electric current is
rated the same as the current stamped
on the motor nameplate, running at a
lower voltage will damage the motor.

GUIDELINES FOR EXTENSION
CORDS
Use a proper extension cord. Make
sure your extension cord is in good
condition. When using an extension
cord, be sure to use one heavy enough
to carry the current your product will
draw. An undersized cord will cause
a drop in line voltage, resulting in
loss of power and overheating. The
table below shows the correct size
to use depending on cord length and
nameplate ampere rating. If in doubt,
use the next heavier gauge. The
smaller the gauge number, the heavier
the cord.
Be sure your extension cord is
properly wired and in good condition.
Always replace a damaged extension
cord or have it repaired by a qualified
person before using it. Protect your
extension cords from sharp objects,
excessive heat and damp or wet areas.

,_WARNING
To avoid injury:
o Never pull the cutting head
assembly and spinning blade toward
you during the cut. The blade may
try to climb up on the top of the
workpiece, causing the cutting
assembly and spinning blade to kick
back, forcefully. The cutting head
assembly should be drawn back
completely then pushed forward
when sawing.
® Let the blade reach full speed before
cutting. This will help reduce the risk
of a thrown workpiece.
To Slide Cut Wide Boards (Fig. BB)
1. Unlock the carriage lock handle (1)
_and allow the cutting head assembly
to move freely.
2. Set both the desired bevel angle
and/or the miter angle and lock into
position.
3. Use a hold down clamp to secure
the workpiece.
4. Grasp the switch handle (2) and pull
the carriage (3) forward until the
center of the saw blade is over the
front of the workpiece (4).
5. Engage the trigger to turn the saw
1
CUTTING GROOVES (FIG. CC)
1. Mark lines identifying the width and
depth of the desired cut on the
workpiece and position on the table
so the inside tip of the blade is
positioned on the line. Use a clamp
to secure the workpiece.
2. Lower the cutting head so the tip of
the blade touches the top surface
workpiece at the marked line.
3. While holding the upper arm in
position, turn the stop knob (1) until
it touches the stop plate (2).
4. Cut two parallel grooves as shown
below.

on.
6. When the saw reaches full speed,
push the switch handle down, slowly,
cutting through the leading edge of
the workpiece.
7. Slowly move the saw handle back
toward the fence, completing the cut.
8. Release the trigger and allow
the blade to stop spinning before
allowing the cutting head to raise.
Out these grooves with saw
Use a chisel to cut out the middle
CUTTING
BOWED MATERIAL
(FIG. DD)
A bowed workpiece must be positioned
against the fence and secured with
a clamping devise before cutting as
shown. Do not position workpiece
incorrectly or try to cut the workpiece
without the support of the fence. This
will cause the blade to bind and could
result in personal injury.
Fig. DD
AUXILIARY WOOD FENCE (FIG. FF)
When making multiple or repetitive cuts
that result in cut-off pieces of one inch
or less, it is possible for the saw blade
to catch the cut-off piece and throw it
out of the saw or into the blade guard
and housing, possibly causing damage
or injury. To minimize this, an auxiliary
wood fence can be mounted to your
saw.
Holes are provided in the saw fence
to attach an auxiliary wood fence. This
fence is to be constructed of straight
wood approximately 3/4 in. thick by
2-1/2 in. high by 18 in. long.
Attach the wood fence securely and
make a full depth cut to make a blade
slot.

WORKPIECE SUPPORT AND
REPETITIVE CUTTING USING THE
STOP PLATE (FIG. EE)
Long pieces need extension table
support.
1. Loosen the knob (1) then slide the
extension table to desired position
and tighten the knob.
2. The stop plate is designed for use
during repetitive cutting. Only use
one stop plate at a time. Loosen the
locking bolt (2), rotate the stop plate
(3) to verticalposition and retighten
the locking bolt.
Check for interference between the
wood fence and the lower blade guard.
Adjust if necessary.
NOTE: This auxiliary fence is used
only with the saw blade in the 0 ° bevel
position (90 ° to the table). The auxiliary
wood fence must be removed when
bevel cutting.

CUTTING BASE MOLDING (FIG. GG)
Base moldings and many other
moldings can be cut on a compound
miter saw. The setup of the saw
depends on molding characteristics
and applications, as shown. Perform
practice cuts on scrap material. To
achieve best results:
1. Alwaysmakesuremoldingsrest

CUTTING CROWN MOLDING
(FIG. HH, II)
Your compound miter saw is suited
for the difficult task of cutting crown
molding. To fit properly, crown molding
must be compound-mitered with
extreme accuracy. The two surfaces
on a piece of crown molding that fit
flat against the ceiling and wall are at
angles that, when added together,
equal exactly 90 °.
Most crown molding has a top rear
angle (the section that fits flat against
the ceiling) of 52 ° and a bottom rear
angle (the section that fits flat against
the wall) of 38 °.
In order to accurately cut crown molding
for a 90 ° inside or outside corner, lay
the molding with its broad back surface
flat on the saw table.

DANGER]
Never put lubricants on the blade
while it is spinning,
[,_WARNJNG
]
® To avoid fire or toxic reaction,
never use gasoline, naphtha
acetone, lacquer thinner or similar
highly volatile solvents to clean
the miter saw.
® To avoid injury from unexpected
starting or electrical shock,
unplug the power cord before
working on the saw.
® For your safety, this saw is double
insulated. To avoid electrical
shock, fire or injury, use only
parts identical to those identified
in the parts list. Reassemble
exactly as the original assembly
to avoid electrical shock.
REPLACING CARBON BRUSHES
(FIG. JJ)
Replace both carbon brushes when
either has less than 1/4 in. length of
carbon remaining, or if the spring or
wire is damaged or burned. To inspect
or replace brushes, first unplug the
saw. Then remove the black plastic
cap (1) on the side of the motor (2).
Carefully remove the spring-loaded
cap. Then pull out the brush and
replace. Replace for the other side. To
reassemble, reverse the procedure.
The ears on the metal end of the
assembly go in the same hole the
carbon part fits into. Tighten the cap
snugly, but do not overtighten.
NOTE: When reinstalling the same
brushes, put them back in the way they
came out. This will avoid a break-in
period that reduces motor performance
and increases wear.
2
LOWER BLADE GUARD
Do not use the saw without the lower
blade guard. The lower blade guard is
attached to the saw for your protection.
Should the lower guard become
damaged, do not use the saw until the
damaged guard has been replaced.
Check regularly to make sure the lower
guard is working properly. Clean the
lower guard of any dust or buildup with
a damp cloth.
_WARNING
I
® Do not use solvents on the guard.
They could make the plastic
"cloudy" and brittle.
® When cleaning the lower guard,
unplug the saw from the power
source receptacle to avoid
unexpected start-up.
SAWDUST
Periodically, sawdust will accumulate
under the worktable and base. This
could cause difficulty in the movement
of the worktable when setting up
a miter cut. Frequently blow out or
vacuum up the sawdust.
_WARNING]
When removing sawdust, wear
proper eye protection to keep debris
from blowing into eyes.
