R [b avoidinjury from
jams, slips or thrown pieces
(kickback and throwback):
1.)USE ONLY RECOMMENDED ACCESSORIES.
Follow the instructions that come with the accessories. The use of improper accessories may
cause risk of injury to persons.
2,)Choose the right blade or cutting accessories for
the material and the type of cutting you plan to
do.
3.)Never use grinding wheels, abrasive cutoff
wheels, friction wheels (metal slitting blades) wire
wheels or buffing wheels. They can fly apart
explosively.
4.) Choose and inspect your cutting tool carefully.
Any power saw can throw foreign objects into the
eyes. This can cause permanent eye damage.
Wear safety goggies (not gtasses) that comply
with ANSI Z87.1 (shown on package). Everyday
eyeglasses have only impaot resistant lenses.
They are not safety glasses. Safety goggles are
available at Sears retail catalogue
stores.
Glasses or goggles not in compliance with ANSI
Z87.1 could seriously hurt you when they break.
WEAR
YOUR
SAFE
To avoid cutting tool failure and thrown shrapnel (broken pieces of blade), use only 10" or
smaller blades or other cutting tools marked for
speed of 3450 rprn or higher.
Always use unbroken,
balanced
designed to fit this saw's 5/8" arbor.
blades
When thru-sawing, (making cuts where the
blade comes through the workpiece top)
always use a 10 inch diameter blade. This
keeps the spreader in closest to the blade.
Do not overtighten
arbor nut. Use arbor
wrenches to "snug" it securely.
Use only sharp blades with properly set teeth.
Consult a professional blade sharpener when
in doubt.
Keep blades clean of gum and resin.
5.)Adjust table inserts flush with the table top.
NEVER use the saw without the proper insert.
6.) Make sure all clamps and locks are tight and no
parts have any excessive play.
2. Keep Work Area Clean
A. Cluttered areas and benches invite accidents.
Floor must not be slippery from wax or sawdust.
B. To avoid burns or other fire damage, never use
the saw near flammable liquids, vapors or gases.
C. To avoid injury, don't do layout, assembly, or
setup work on the table while the blade is spinning. It could cut or throw anything hitting the
blade.
Plan ahead to protect your eyes, hands, face and
ears.
3, Plan your work.
A. USE THE RIGHT TOOL - Don't force tool or attachment to do a job it was not designed for.
B. Dress for safety:
Do not wear loose clothing, gloves, neckties or
jewelry (rings, wrist watches). They can get
caugllt and draw you into moving parts.
Wear nonshp footwear.
Tie back long hair.
Roll long sleeves above the elbow.
Noise levels vary widely. To avoid possible qear_ngdamage, wear ear plugs or muffs when using
For dusty operations, wear a dust mask along
with the safety goggles.
C. Inspect your workpiece. Make sure there are no nails
or foreign objects in the part of the workpiece to be
cut.
D. Plan your cut to avoid KICKBACKS and THROWBACKS - when a part or all of the workpiece binds
on the blade and is thrown violently back toward the
front of the saw:
Never out FREEHAND: Always use either a rip
fence, miter gauge or fixture to position and guide
the work, so it won't twist, bind on the blade and
kickback.
Make sure there is no debris between the workpiece and its supports.
When cutting irregularly shaped workpieces,
plan your work so it wilt not slip and pinch the
blade.
a. A piece of molding, for example, must lie flat or
be held by a fixture or jig that wil! not let it twist,
rock or slip while being cut. Use jigs, fixtures
where needed to prevent workpiece shifting.
b. Use a different, better suited type of tool for
work that can't be made stable.
Use extra caution with large, very small or awkward workpieces:
a. Use extra supports
(tables, saw horses,
blocks, etc.) for any workpieces large enough
to tip when not held down to the table top.
NEVER use another person as a substitute
for a table extension, or as additiona! support
for a workpiece that is longer or wider than the
basic saw table, or to help feed, support or pull
the workpiece
b. Never confine the piece being cut off. That is,
the piece NOT against the Fence, Miter Gauge
or fixture. Never hold it, clamp it, touch it, or
use length stops against it. It must be free to
move. If confined, it could get wedged against
the blade and cause a kickback or throwback.
Never cut more than one workpiece at a time.

BEFORE STARTING
-[b avoid kickbacks and slips into the blade, make
sure the rip fence is parallel to the sawblade.
Check the anti-kickback pawls (See BASIC SAW
OPERATION-USING
THE RiP FENCE). The
pawls must stop a kickback once it has started.
Replace or sharpen Anti*Kickback pawls when
points become dull.
Plastic and composition (like hardboard) materials
may be cut on your saw. However, since these
are usually quite hard and slippery, the antikickback pawls may not stop a kickback. Therefore,
be especially careful in your set-up and cutting
procedures.
WHILE CUTTING
To avoid kickbacks and slips into the blade,
always push forward on the section of the workpiece between the saw blade and the Rip Fence.
Never push forward on the piece being cut off.

WORK
FEED DEVICES
Before cutting any wood on your saw. study all of the
"Basic Saw Operations".
As you learn new table saw WOOdworKing techniques.
you'll see that many types of cuts need different support
and feeding devices, known as jigs or fixtures They
can help you make cuts more accurately. By helping to
steady the workpiece and keep you away from the
blade, they can help you safely use your saw for certain
cuts.

Many people custom build their own jigs anc fixtures.
Jigs and fixtures are often designed for a particular cut
You can use your table saw to easily make many jigs

Push Block
There are any number of ways to properly cut your
workpieces to make a push block, The following s_eos
describe one way you can make a push block.
Making the base:
Start with a piece of 3/8 inch plywood at least 5-1/8
inches wide or wider and 14-3/4 inches long or
longer.
Crosscut a 2-1/2 inch wide strip off the narrow end of
the plywood. Put the larger piece aside for later.
Cross cut a 3/8 inch wide piece off the end of the 21/2 inch wide strip. Put the 3/8 inch wide piece aside
for late¢
Go back to the piece that is at least 5-1/8" wide or
wider and 12 inches long or longer. Cut it to the size
and shape shown,
Putting it together
Glue the 2-1/2 inch strip to the base, as shown:
IMPORTANT: The small piece of wood 3/8 inch x 3/8
inch × 2-1/2 inch should be glued to the plywood, Do
not use nails. This is to prevent dulling of the sawblade
in the event you cut in to the push block.

SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
FOR BASIC SAW OPERATIONS
BEFORE EACH USE:
4 Choose and inspect your cutting tool carefully.
1. Inspect your saw.
a.
b.
To avoid injury from aCCidenta_ starting, unptug
the saw, turn the switch off ana remove the sw_tcn
key before raising or remowng
the guara changing the cutting tool, changing
the setup or adjusting anything.
e.
b.
C.
Check for alignment of moving
parts, binding of
moving parts, breakage of parts, mounting, and
any other conditions that may affect the way _t
works. If any part is missing,
bent. or broken in
any way, or any electrical parts don't work properly, turn the saw off and unplug
the saw.
c. Replace damaged, m_ssing,
using the saw again.
d.
a.
d.
or failed parts before
When thru--sawing, (making cuts where the
blade comes through the workpiece top)
always use a 10 inch diameter blade. This
keeps the spreader in closest to the blade.
Do not overtighten arbor nut. Use arbor
wrenches to "snug" it securely.
f. Keep blades clean of gum and resin.
5. Adjust table inserts flush with the table top.
NEVER use the saw without the proper insert.
REMOVE ADJUSTING
KEYS AND WRENCHES. Form habit of checking
for and remowng
keys and adjusting wrenches
from tool before
turning it on.
6. Make sure all clamps and locks are tight and
no parts have any excessive play.
2 KEEP WORK AREA CLEAN
slips or thrown pieces
a. Cluttered areas and benches invite accidents.
Floor must not be slippery from wax or sawdust.
USE ONLY RECOMMENDED
ACCES.
SORIES - Follow the instructions that come
witl_ the accessories. Using other accessories
may be dangerous.
b. To avoid burns or other fire damage, never use
me saw near flammable liquids, vapors or gases.
2. Choose the right blade
or cutting accessory for
the material and the type
of cutting you plan to
do.
3.
Always use unbroken, balanced blades
designed to fit this saw's 5/8" arbor.
e. Use only sharp blades with properly set
teeth. Consult a professional blade sharpener when in doubt.
Use the sawblade guard, spreader, and antikickback pawls for any thru-sawing
(whenever the
blade comes through the top of the workplace).
Make sure the pawls work
properly Make sure
the spreader is in line with the sawbiade.
f. To avoid injury from jams,
(kickback and throwback):
To avoid cutting too! failure and thrown
shrapnel (broken pieces of blade), use only
10" or smatler blades or other cutting tools
marked for speeds of 3450 rpm or higher.
Never use grinding wheels,
abrasive cut-off
wheels, friction wheels
(metal slitting blades)
wire wheels or buffing
wheel. They can fly
apart explosively.
44
P_an ahead to protect your
eyes,
3. Inspect your workpiece. Make sure there are no nails
or foreign objects in the part of the workpiece to be
cdt-
hands_ face, ears,
a To avoid injury from accidentai b!ade contact,
doHt do iayout, assembly, or setup work ors the
tab!e while the b_ade is spinning. It could cut or
throw anything hitting the b_ade.
4. Plan your cut to avoid KICKBACKS and THROWBACKS - when a part or all of the workpiece binds
on the btade and is thrown violently back toward the
front of the saw.
AVOID ACCIDENTAL STARTING - Make sure switch is
in "OFF" position before plugging saw in.
Never cut FREEHAND: Always use either a rip
fence, miter gauge or fixture to position and guide
the work, so it won't twist, bind on the blade and
kickback.
Plan your work
I. USE THE RIGHT TOOL - Don't force tool or attach_
ment to do a job it was not designed for.
Make sure there's no debris between the workpiece and its supports.
2. DRESS FOR SAFETY:
When cutting irregularly shaped workpieces,
plan your work so it will not slip and pinch the
blade.
Do not wear loose clothing, gloves, neckties or
jewelry (rings, wrist watches). They can get
caught and draw you into moving parts.
A piece of molding, for example, must lie fiat or
be held by a fixture or jig that will not let it twist,
rock or slip while being cut. Use jigs, fixtures
where needed to prevent workpiece shifting.
Wear nonstip footwear.
Tie back long hair.
Roil long sleeves above the elbow.
Use a different, better suited type of tool for
work that can't be made stable.
Noise levels vary widely. To avoid possibte hearing damage, wear ear plugs or muffs when using
saw for tong periods of time.
Use extra caution with large, very small or awkward workpieces:
Any power saw can throw foreign objects into the
eyes. This can cause permanent eye damage.
Wear safety goggles (not glasses) that comply
with ANSI Z87.1 (shown on package). Everyday
eyeglasses have only impact resistant lenses.
They are not safety glasses. Safety goggles are
available at Sears retain catalog stores. Glasses
or goggles not in compliance with ANSI Z87.1
could seriously hurt you when they break.
WEAR
Use extra supports (tables, saw horses, blocks,
etc.) for any workpieces large enough to tip when
not held down on the table top. NEVER use
another person as a substitute for a table extension, or as additional support for a workpiece that
is longer or wider than the basic saw table, or to
help feed, support or pull the workpiece.
Never confine the piece being cut off. That is, the
piece NOT against the fence, miter gauge or fixture= Never hold it, clamp it, touch it, or use length
stops against it. It must be free to move. If confined, it could get wedged against the blade and
cause a kickback or throwback.
YOUR
Never cut more than one workpiece at a time.
Never turn your table saw "ON" before clearing
even/thing except the workpiece and related support devices off the table.
For dusty operations, wear a dust mask along
with the safety goggles.
45
Plan the way you will push the workpiece
Make sure the,_ [co _f the ardor or cutting tool turns
toward [ne front ot the sa'v',
through.
NEVER pull the workpiece through. Start and finish
the cut from the front of the table saw.
NEVER put your fingers or hands

KEEP CHILDREN AWAY. All visitors should be kept
a safe d_stance from work Make sure bystanders
are c_ear of the saw and workpiece.
5, Let the b!ade reach full speed before cutting.
DON'T FORCE TOOL, It will do the job better and
safer at its designed rate. Feed the workpiece into
the blade only fast enough to !et it cut without bogging (]own or binding,
Avoid awkward operations and hand positions
where
a sudden slip could cause fingers or hand to move
into a sawblade or other cutting tool.
Always

THE _IiTER GAUGE _8 USED WHEN CROSSOUTTING, MITER CUTT!NG, BEVEL CUTTING, COMPOUND MITER CUTT!NG, DADOING and when RABBETING AND MOLDING across the end of a narrow
workpiece.
Use jigs or fixtures to help hold any piece too
small to extend across the full length of the miter
gauge face during the cut. This lets you properly
hold the miter gauge and workpiece and helps
keep your hands away from the blade.
WARNING: For your own safely, always observe
the fo_gowing safety precautions in addition to the
safety instructions on pages 2, 3, 4, 5, 44, 45 &
46.
While cuffing
ADDIT_!ONAL SAFETY iNSTRUCTIONS
CROSS CUT TYPE CUTS
FOR
To avoid blade contact, always hold the miter
gauge as shown in the BASIC SAW OPERATIONS - USING THE MITER GAUGE.
Before starting
NEVER use the rip fence when crosscutting.
CROSSCUTTING
Crosscut
A cutting or shaping operation made across the width of
the workpiece.
The graduations on the miter gauge provide accuracy
for average woodworking.
In some cases where
extreme accuracy is required, when making angle cuts,
for example, make a trail cut and then recheck it with an
accurate square, or protractor.
If necessary, the miter gauge head can be swiveled
slightly to compensate for any inaccuracy.
NOTE: The space between the miter gauge bar and
the groove in the table is held to a minimum during
manufacturing.
For maximum accuracy when using the miter gauge,
always, '_favo¢'one side of the groove in the table. In
other words, don't move the miter gauge from side to
side while cutting, but keep one side of the bar riding
against one side of the groove.
The miter gauge may be used in either of the grooves
in the table. Make sure it is locked.
NOTE: Glue a p_ece of sanopaper to the face of the
miter gauge head. This will help prevent the workpiece
from "creeping" while it is being cut.

same procedure as you would for.cross-cutting.
Adjust the miter gauge to the desired angle, and lock it.
The miter gauge may be used in either of the grooves
in the table.
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 handle with your

Before starting
To avoid kickbacks and slips into the blade, make
sure the rip fence is parallel to the sawblade.
Check the antFkickback
pawls. The pawls must
stop a kickback once it has started. Replace or
sharpen antFkickback
pawls when points become
dull.
Plastic and composition (like hardboard) materials
may be cut on your saw. However, since these
are usually quite hard and slippery, the anti-kickback pawls may not stop a kickback. Therefore,
be especially careful in your set-up and cutting
proceaures.
Have blade extend approximately !/8 inch above
top of workpiece. Additional blade exposure
would increase the hazard potential.
While cutting

2. For rabbeting along an edge (long way of workpiece) as shown, add facing to rip fence approximately as high as the workpiece is wide. Adjust rip
fence and blade to required dimensions; then make
first cut with board to required dimensions; then
make first cut with board flat on table as any rip
(type) cut; make second cut with workpiece on edge.
Follow all precautions, safety instructions, and operational instructions as for ripping, or rip type operations, including featherboards and push stick, etc.
3. For rabbeting across an end, for workpiece 101/2" and narrower make the rabbet cut with the
board flat on the table. Using the miter gauge fitted
with a facing, follow the same procedures and
