ON A WORK
BENCH
The sow shoud be placed on a suitable sturdy work bench,
or Craftsman
Power Tool Bench. The base of the saw must
be mounted
*lush to a flat surface on the work bench to
prevent
distortion
of the saw base. The nuts, screws, and
washers which attach
the wooden
shipping skids to the
saw base may be used to secure the saw base to the work
bench, or tact bench.

SIDE PLAY
1. Set the radial
arm at 0 J index position,
making
sure
the arm latch handle is in the detent notch, and tighten
the arm lock handle. (See figure 4.)
2. Apply side force with one hand on radial arm in both
directions. If side play exists, an adjustment is required.
3. Insert a 3/16-inch
Allen wrench into the socket-head
set-screw that adjusts the column tube wedge key, as
shown in figure 4. Rotate the set-screw slowly in (clockwise) until no side play can be felt in radial arm.
4. Check for binding by rotating

the elevation
crank. If the
resistance, loosen the set
screw by rotating the Allen wrench counterclockwise
until
rotation
is normal. An effective method for finalizing
the
set-screw
adjustment
is to rotate the screw while
the
elevation
crank is being rotated,
checking for side play
in radial arm as the adjustment
progresses.
The adjustment is correct
when all side play of radial
arm is
eliminated
and only very slight additional
resistance
can be felt when rotating
the elevation
crank.
5. If some radial arm side play can still be detected
after
performing
the above adjustment,
it will be necessary

2.
Raise the arm latch handle
out of the detent,
loosen
the arm lock handle (figure 4) and loosen the carriage
lock knob (4, figure 1). This will permit easy positioning
of saw blade during
leveling
operations.
3.
Lower the saw blade by rotating
elevation
crank until a
tooth just touches the table at the highest spot when saw
is moved to points 1,2, 3, and 4 (POSITION
1, figure 9).
This will locate the table high point. Spin the saw Blade
by hand and listen for "pinging'"
sound to pick up this
high paint.
4.
Loosen the table support screws at each side just enough
to allow the table support angles to slip when tapped
with a mallet.
(See figure
6.) If too loose, leveling
operations
will be difficult.
NOTE: Do not change elevation
of saw blade
5.
Move the saw blade to the low position
opposite
the
high point (located in step 3, above) at the same end
of table.

(POSITION
1, figure 9) the Blade would next be moved
to point 3 (POSITION
2, figure 9).
6.
Using a mallet, tap the table support angle under
3 until the table top just touches the saw blade.
7.
Tighten the two table support screws securely at the left
side of frame (figure
6), and recheck by moving saw
blade back and forth between
points 1 and 3 (POSITION 2, figure 9). If this end of table surface is level,
the saw will just touch the table at points from 1 to 3.
If not level, readjust point 3.
8.
Move the saw blade to point 2 (POSITION
3, figure 9).
Tap forward
end of right table support angle upward
with a mallet until the blade
just touches the table
surface.
9.
Move the saw blade to point 4 (POSITION
4, figure 9)
and tap rear end of table support angle upward
until
the blade just touches the table surface.
10.
Tighten the two table support
screws securely at the
right side of frame (reference
figure 6), and move saw
blade back and forth between
points 2 and 4 (POS!TION 4, figure 9) to make sure it touches at all positions from points 2 and 4.

Thus, these two screws

THE

by the arm lock handle (7, figure 18)
and the arm latch handle (8). This handle is used to lock
the arm to the column for normal cutting. It should also be
used to eliminate
any play between the arm and the column
when levelling the table (Refer to STEP FOUR). This is done
18
by tightening the arm lock handle until the arm is snug on
the column, thus eliminating
looseness and allowing
the
arm to rotate smoothly.
The radial arm can be rotated
360
and locked ;n any desired
position.
The arm is unlocked by loosening
the arm lock handle
and raising the
arm latch handle out of the detent
notch. It is locked by
tightening
the arm lock handle. The radial arm has positive
stops at 0 ° and 45 ° , left and right, and is released
from
these index positions by raising the arm latch handle.

yoke, disengage
the swivel index knob and rotate the yoke

(viewing it from the carriage)
until the swivel
latch pin automatically
indexes the yoke at 90 ° . Lock the
yoke securely. Position the carriage
on radial arm to provide
proper width of cut by measuring
from edge of saw blade

width require
two passes, one along each edge of the board, When two
cuts from opposite
edges are required,
they should overlap
1/2-inch
from the approximate
center of the board.
If the
first cut is too deep, the kerf will close and bind the saw
on the second cut, with some danger of "'kickback". Also,
when the kerf closes, the two sides of the cut are no longer
parallel
