SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING:
FOB YOUR OWN SAFETY,
DO NOT
OPERATE YOUR SAW UNTIL IT IS COMPLETELY
ASSEMBLED AND INSTALLED
ACCORDING TO THE
INSTRUCTIONS...AND
UNTIL YOU HAVE
READ
AND UNDERSTAND THE FOLLOWING,
1. GENERAL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR POWER
TOOLS.,.
SEE PAGE 2
2. GETTING TO KNOW YOUR SAW.,. SEE PAGE 15
3. BASIC SAW OPERATION..,
SEE PAGE 17
4. ADJUSTMENTS...
SEE PAGE 24
5. MAINTENANCE...SEE
PAGE 27
6. STABILITY OF SAW
If there is any tendency for the saw to tip over or move
during certain cutting
operations such as cutting
extremely large heavy panels or long heavy boards, the
saw should be bolted down.
If you attach any kind of table extensions over 24"
wide to either end of the saw, make sure you either bolt
the saw to the bench or floor as appropriate, or support
the outer end of the extension from the bench or floor,
asappropriate.
7. LOCATION
The saw should be positioned so neither the operator
nor a casual observer is forced to stand in line with the
saw blade.
8. KICKBACKS
A "KICKBACK"
occurs during a rip-type operation
when a part or all of the workpiece is thrown back
violently toward the operator.
Keep your face and body to one side of the sawblade,
out of line with a possible "Kickback.'"
Kickbacks - and possible injury from them -- can
usually be avoided by:
A. Maintaining the rip fence parallel to the sawblade.
B. Keeping the sawblade sharp. Replacing antikickback
pawls when points become dull.
C. Keeping sawblade guard, spreader, and antikickback
pawls in place and operating properly. The spreader
must be in alignment with the sawblade and the
pawls must stop a kickback once it has started.
Check their action before ripping.
D. NOT ripping work that is twisted or warped or does
not have a straight edge to guide along the rip fence.
E. NOT releasing work until you have pushed it all the
way past the sawblade.
F. Using a "PUSH STICK" {See Page 18) for ripping
widths of 2 to 6 in., and an auxiliary fence and push
block for ripping widths narrower than 2 in. (See
"Basic Saw Operation
Using The Rip Fence"
section.)
G. NOT confining the cut-off piece when ripping or
crosscutting.
H. When ripping apply the feed force to the section of
the workpiece between the saw blade and the rip
fence.
9, PROTECTION:
EYES, HANDS, FADE, EARS, BODY
A. If any part of your saw is malfunctioning, has been
damaged or broken..,
such as the motor switch, or
other operating control, a safety device or the
power cord.,,
cease operating immediately
until
the particular part is properly repaired or replaced.
B. WRar safety goggles that comply with ANSI Z87.1,
and a face shield if operation is dusty. Wear ear
plugs
or muffs
during extended
periods of
operation.
C. Small loose pieces of wood or other objects that
contact the rear of the revolving blade can be
thrown back at the operator at excessive speed. This
can usually be avoided by keeping the guard and

FOR TABLE
SAWS
spreader
in place for all "THRU-SAWING"
operations (sawing entirely thru the work) AND by
removing all loose pieces from the table with a long
stick of wood IMMEDIATELY
after they are cut
off.
Use extra caution when the guard assembly is
removed
for resawing, dadoing, rabbeting,
or
molding - replace the guard as soon as that
operation is completed.
For rip or rip-type cuts, the following
end of a
workp[ece to which a push stick or push board is
applied must be square (perpendicular to the fence)
in order that feed pressure applied to the workpieee
by the push stick or block does not cause the
workpiece to come away from the fence, and
possibly cause a kickback.
During rip and rip type cuts, the workpiece must be
beld down on the table and against the fence with a
pusb
stick,
push block, or featherboards.
A
featherboard is made of solid lumber per sketch.

G. NEVER turn the saw "ON" before clearing the
table of all tools, wood scraps, etc., except the
workpiece and related feed or support devices for
the operation planned.
H. NEVER place your face or body in line with the
cutting tool.
I. NEVER place your fingers or hands in the path of
the sawblade or other cutting tool.
J. NEVER reach in back of the cutting tool with
either hand to hold down or support the workpiece,
remove wood scraps, or for any other reason. Avoid
awkward operations and hand positions where a
sudden slip could cause fingers or hand to move
into a sawblade or other cutting tool.
K. DO NOT perform layout, assembly, or setup work
on the table while the cutting tool is rotating.
L. DO NOT perform any operation "FREEHAND"
always use either the rip fence or the miter gauge to
position and guide the work.
M. NEVER use the rip fence when crosscutting or the
miter gauge when ripping. DO NOT use the rip
fence as a length stop.
Never hold onto or touch the "free end" of the
workpiece or a "free piece" that ls cut off, while
power is "ON" and/or the sawblade is rotating.
N. Shut "OFF" the saw and disconnect the power cord
when removing the table insert, changing the
cutting tool, removing or replacing the blade guard,
or making adjustments.
O. Provide adequate support to the rear and sides of
the saw table for wider or long workpieces.
P, Plastic and composition (like hardboard) materials
may be cut on your saw. However, since these are
usually quite hard and slippery, the antikickbaek
pawls may not stop a kickback.
Q. If you stall or jam the sawblade in the workpiece,
turn saw "OFF", remove the workpiece from the
sawblade, and check to see if the sawblade is
parallel to the miter gauge grooves and if the
spreader is in proper alignment with the sawblade.
If ripping at the time, check to see if the rip fence is
parallel with the sawblade. Readjust as indicated.
R. DONOTremove

Thiscouldendanger your
hands or cause a kickback. Turn saw "OFF" and
wait until blade stops.
S. Useextra care when ripping wood that has a twisted
grain or is twisted or bowed - it may rock on the
table and/or pinch the sawblade.
10. KNOW YOUR CUTTING TOOLS
A. Dull, gummy, or improperly sharpened or set
cutting tools can cause materia_ to stick, jam, stall
the saw, or kickback at the operator.
Minimize potential injury by proper cutting tool
and machine maintenance.
NEVER
ATTEMPT
TO FREE A STALLED
SAWBLADE WITHOUT FIRST TURNING THE
SAW OFF.
B, Never use grinding wheels, abrasive cut-off wheels,
friction wheels (metal slitting blades) wire wheels or
buffing wheels.
11. USE ONLY ACCESSORIES DESIGNED FOR THIS
SAW,
12. Crosscuttingoperations are more conveniently worked
and with greater safety if an auxiliary wood facing is
attached to the miter gauge using the holes provided.
However, the facing must not interfere with the proper
functioning of the sawblade guard.
13. Make sure the top of the arbor or cutting tool rotates
toward
you when standing in normal operating
position. Also make sure the cutting tool, arbor collars
and arbor nut are installed properly. Keep the cutting
tool as low as possible for the operation being
performed. Keep all guards in place whenever possible.
WEAR
YOUR
14. Do not use any blade or other cutting tool marked for
an operating speed less than 3450 RPM. Never use a
cutting tool larger in diameter than the diameter for
which the saw was designed. For greatest safety and
efficiency when ripping, use the maximum diameter
blade for which the saw is designed, since under these
conditions the spreader is nearest the blade.
15. Adjust table inserts flush with the table top. NEVER
Operate the saw unless the proper insert is installed.
16. Never feed material into the cutting tool from the rear
of the saw. An accident and serious injury could result.
I7. THINK SAFETY.
Safety is a combination of operator common sense and
alertness at all times when the saw is being used.

CHECKING BLADE SQUARENESS TO TABLE
IMPORTANT:
BLADE must be SQUARE (90° ) to
TABLE, in order to proceed with assembly.
To check for blade squareness, refer to "BLADE TELT, OR
SQUARENESS OF BLADE TO TABLE" adjustments on
page 25.
NOTE: The Combination Square must be "TRUE" - See
start of "Unpacking and Checking Contents section on page
6 for checking method.
CHECKING BLADE FOR HEEL
IMPORTANT: Saw blade MUST be parallel to miter gauge
groove.
To check
for
parallelism,
refer
to "HEELING
ADJUSTMENT OR PARALLELISM OF BAWBLADE TO
MITER GAUGE GROOVE" adjustment on page24.
CHECKING BLADE ELEVATION
Maximum depth of cut MUST NOT EXCEED TWO AND
ONE HALF (2-1/2 INCHES. This adiustment is set at the
factory and should be checked to make sure that it has not
changed due to rough handling during shipment.
ATTACHING
\
With the blade up as high as it will go, measure the distance
from the top of the table to top of the highest saw tooth. If
it is more than two and one half (2-1/2) inches, adjust it at
this time. Refer to "BLADE ELEVATION"
adjustments on
page 26.

2. Always lock the miter gaugesecurely when in use.
3. Remove rip fence from table.
4. Make sure blade guard is installed for all "THRUSAWING" operations
(when sawblade cuts entirely
thru the thickness of the workpiece.) Replace guard
IMMEDIATELY
after completion of dadoing, molding
or rabbeting cuts.
5. Have blade extend approximately 1/8 in. above top of
workpiece. Additional
blade exposure would increase
the hazard potential.

When using the miter gauge in the LEFT hand groove, hold
the workpiece firmly against the miter gauge head with
your left hand, and grip the lock knob with your right.

WARNING:
FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY, ALWAYS
OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
IN ADDITION
TO THE SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS ON
PAGES 2, 3, and 4.
7.
Always lock the rip fence securely when in use.
Remove miter gauge from table.
4.
Make sure blade guard is installed for all thru-sawing
type cuts. Replace the guard IMMEDIATELY following
completion of resawing, rabbeting, dadoing, or molding
operations.
Frequently check the action of the ANTIKICKBACK
PAWLS by passing the workpiece alongside of the
spreader while saw is OFF.
Pull the workpiece TOWARD you, If the PAWLS do
not DIG into the workpiece and HOLD it...
the pawls
must be SHARPENED. See "Maintenance" section.
Keep your hands clear of the blade and out of the path
of the blade.
8.
If the blade stalls or stops while cutting,
TURN
SWITCH OFF before attempting to free the blade.
9. Do not reach over or behind the blade to pull the
workpieee through the cut.., to support long or heavy
workpieces . . . to remove small cut-off pieces of
material or FOR ANY OTHER REASON.
10. Do not pick up small pieces of cut-off material from the
table. REMOVE them by pushing them OFF the table
with a long stick. Otherwise they could be thrown back
at you by the rear of the blade.
11. Do not remove small pieces of cut-off material that may
become TRAPPED inside the blade guard while the saw
is RUNNING, THIS COULD ENDANGER
YOUR
HANDS or cause a KICKBACK.
1. Never make these cuts FREEHAND (without using the
rip fence or auxiliary devices when required) because
the blade
could bind in the cut and cause a
KICKBACK.
2.
3.
Have blade extend approximately 1/8 in. above top of
workpiece. Additional blade exposure would increase
the hazard potential.
Do not stand directly in front of the blade in case of a
KICKBACK. Stand to either side of the blade.
Turn the saw OFF, After the blade has stopped turning,
lift the guard and remove the piece.
