EXTENSION
GROUNDING
CORDS
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 carrythe current that
the tool will draw. 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
Up to 25 feet
26-100feet
In the event of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding
provides a path of least resistance for electriccurrent
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 properly
installed and grounded in accordance with all local
codes and ordinances.
Do not modifythe plug provided. If it will notfitthe
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 repairor
replacement of the electric cord or plug is necessary,
do not connect the equipment-grounding conductor to
a live terminal.
Wire Size (A.W.G.)
14
12
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'sjacket.
Check with a qualified electrician or service personnel
ifthe grounding instructions are not completely
understood, or if in doubt as to whether the tool is
properly grounded.
Before using an extension cord, inspect it for loose or
exposed wires and cut or worn insulation.
,_
CAUTION: Keepthecordawayfromthecutting
area and position the cord so that itwill not be
caught on lumber, tools, orotherobjecteduring
cuttingoperations.
ELECTRICAL
Repair or replace a damaged or worn cord immediately.
This tool is intended for use on a circuit that has an
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
INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: Instructions are given in the
Assemblysection forchanging the motorvoltage
to 240 volts. Follow them carefully ... Electrical
shock can kill.
AND WIRING
The no-load 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.

For cuts with the blade straight up and cutting across
the grain (cross cuts or miter cuts), use the miter gage
to set the angle and push the wood into the blade. To
cut with the b_ade straight up, along the grain of the
wood (rip cuts), use the rip fence to guide the wood.
Push smaller pieces with a pushbtock or pushstick.
OVERVIEW
The upper portion of the blade projects up through the
table, surrounded by an insert called the threat plate.
The height of the blade is set with a handwheel on the
front of the cabinet. To accommodate wide panels,
the tabletop has extensions on each side. Detailed
instructions are provided in the Operation section of
this manual for the basic cuts: cross cuts, miter cuts,
bevel cuts, and compound cuts.
To tilt the blade for a bevel cut, use the bevel
handwheel on the side of the cabinet. A bevel scale
on the front of the cabinet shows the blade angle.

so it can be directed into the sawdust bag.
BLADE GUARD - Always keep the guard down over
the blade for through-sawing cuts.
RIP FENCE HANDLE - The handle on the front of the
rip fence releases the rip fence or locks it in place.
BEVEL LOCK HANDLE - This handle, placed just
under the worktable surface on the front of the cabinet, locks the angle setting of the blade. Be sure the
handle is hanging straight down before tilting the
blade. If it is not straight down, it may jam and bend
the locking bolt.
RIVING KNIFE OR SPREADER - Located directly
behind the blade, it keeps cut edges from binding and
supports the blade guard.
SCALE - Found on the front rail, the easy-to-read
scale provides precise measurements in rip cuts.
DUAL VOLTAGE - Your table saw can be set up to

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 Table Extensions, page 21.
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 (#10-24 x 1/2 in.), and a lock washer (#10).
•
Align the handwheels to the shaft ends that extend
from the front and right side of the table saw base.
Match the flat spots on the shaft and inside the

TABLE
EXTENSIONS
•
Two different table extensions have been supplied
with your saw; one is made of cast iron and the other
made of MDF material. The cast iron table extension
attaches to the saw table. It must be assembled first.
The MDF table is assembled after assembly of the
front and rear rails. It attaches to the front and rear
rails on the opposite side of the saw table.
Get help to stand the saw assembly upright using
the center saw table. Do not grasp the saw by the
table extension.
,_
The cast iron table should be assembled to the left
side of the saw table when viewing from normal
operating position. The MDF table extension should
be assembled to the right side of the saw table when
viewing from normal operating position.
ALIGNING
EXTENSION
See Figure 11.
A good alignment allows the rails to slide on easily.
•
Stand at the front of the saw and line up the front
edges of the table and extension.
Locate the cast iron table extension and the small
hardware bag with the following:
•
To align extension 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 extension slightly until it is higher than the table
(if necessary, place a block of wood below and tap
upward). Center the block of wood over the front
and rear edges and tap until both are even (flush)
with saw table. Recheck the front alignment. If it is
even, tighten the screws with a 12 mm wrench.

BASIC
OPERATION
OFTHE
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.
•
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.
•
Use the blade guard assembly for all through cuts.
CUTTING
AIDS
See Figure 56.
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 the workpiece, with a
90" notch in one end and shaping for a grip on the
other end.
Note: This table saw is designed to cut wood and
wood composition products only.
CAUSES
When making a cut, use steady, even pressure.
Never force cuts.
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 on non-through cuts.
CAUTION: Be sure the screw is recessed to
avoid damaging the saw or workpiece.
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
AVOIDING
PUSHSTICKS
KICKBACK
•
Always use the correct blade depth setting. The top
of the blade teeth should clear the workpiece by 1/8
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.
•
To avoid pinching the blade, support the work
propedy before beginning a cut.
CP,AI:TSNI_N"TABLE SAW315.228590
PUSHBLOCKS
Fig. 56
A featherboard is a device used to help control the
workpiece 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.
_I,
38
WARNING:
Place the featherboard against the
uncut portion of the workpiece, to avoid kickback
that could cause serious personal injury.
RESETTING THE THERMAL
PROTECTOR
OVERLOAD
CAUSES
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 57.
Your table saw is equipped with an overload 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.
If the motor overheats, the overload protector shuts
down the power. Use the steps listed below to restarf.
•
_i,
Turn the switch off to eliminate any possibility of
the blade restarting when the motor has cooled.
Remove any objects, including the workpiece, from
contact with the blade to prevent binding when you
do restart operation.
WARNING:
If the overload protector shuts off,
immediately turn 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
below to try to determine the reason for overload.
Correct the problem before resuming operation,
•
Press hard on the red button on the end of the
motor (opposite end from the pulley). If the motor
has cooled enough, you will hear a click. If you do
not hear a click, let the motor cool longer.
•
When you hear the click, the motor has been reset
and you can continue your project.
EXTENSION CORD
LENGTH
OF OVERLOAD
•
Loose or incorrect connections (see Connecting
the Motor and Changing the Motor Voltage in the
Assembly section)
•
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 chart.)
•
Using a dull blade or forcing a cutting operation.
WARNING:
Use the correct cord and plug to
prevent overload and motor burnout.

TYPES
OF CUTS
©
See Figure 58.
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
®
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
®
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
avoLd 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.
BEVELCROSSCUT
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
pieces 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. 58
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.
