n
Before using your tabJe saw, it is critical that you read and understand
these rules couJd result in serious injury or damage to the table saw.
Good safety practices are a combination of common
sense, staying alert and understanding how to use your
power tool. To avoid mistakes that could cause serious
injury, do not plug in your power tool until you have read
and understood the following safety rules:
1. READ and become familiar with the entire Operator's
Manual. LEARN the tool's application, limitations and
possible hazards.

Failure to follow
16. REMOVE ADJUSTING KEYS AND WRENCHES.
Form the habit of checking to see that keys and
adjusting wrenches are removed from the tool before
turning ON.
17. NEVER LEAVE TOOL RUNNING UNATTENDED.
TURN THE POWER "OFF". Do not leave the tool
before it comes to a complete stop.
l& NEVER STAND ON TOOL Serious injury could
occur if the too! is tipped or if the cutting tool is
unintentionally contacted.
19. DO NOT OVERREACH

Keep proper footing and
20. MAINTAIN TOOLS WITH CARE Keep tools sharp
and clean for most efficient and safest performance.
Follow instructions for lubricating and changing
accessories.
DO NOT use power tools in the presence of
flammable liquids or gases.
21. CHECK FOR DAMAGED OR LOOSE PARTS.
Before further use of the too!, a guard or other
part that is damaged should be carefully checked
to ensure it will operate properly and perform its
intended function. Check for alignment of moving
parts, binding of moving parts, loose mounting
and any other conditions that may affect its safe
operation. A guard or other part that is loose or
damaged should be properly adjusted repaired or
replaced.
7.
KEEP WORK AREA CLEAN. Cluttered areas and
benches invite accidents.
22. MAKE WORKSHOP CHILD PROOF with padlocks,
master switches or by removing starter keys.
8.
KEEP CHILDREN AWAY. All visitors should be kept
at a safe distance from the work area.
23. DO NOT operate the tool if you are under the
influence of any drugs, alcohol or medication that
could impair your ability to use the tool safely.
5.
6.
DO NOT USE iN A DANGEROUS ENWRONMENT
such as damp or wet locations or exposure to rain.
Keep work area well lighted.
9. DO NOT FORCE THE TOOL. it will do the job better
and safer at the rate for which it was designed.
10 USE THE RIGHT TOOL. Do not force the tool or
attachment to do a job for which it is not designed.

possible. Dust generated from certain materials can
be hazardous to your health and in some cases, a
fire hazard. Always operate the power tool in a wellventilated area with adequate dust removal
l& DISCONNECT TOOLS before servicing and when
changing accessories such as blades, cutters, etc.
25. ALWAYS WEAR EYE PROTECTION Any power
too! can throw foreign objects into your eyes which
could cause permanent eye damage. ALWAYS
wear safety goggles (not glasses) that comply with
ANSi safety standard Z87.1. Everyday glasses
have only impact resistant bnses. They ARE NOT
safety glasses. Safety Goggles are available at
Sears. NOTE: Glasses or goggles not in
compliance with ANSI Z87.1 could cause serious
injury when they break.
14. REDUCE THE RISK OF UNINTENTIONAL
STARTING. Make sure the switch is in the OFF
position before plugging into the power supply.
26. DIRECTION OF FEED. Feed work into a blade or
cutter against the direction of rotation of the blade or
cutter only.
15. USE ONLY RECOMMENDED ACCESSORIES.
Consult the Operator's Manual for recommended
accessories. The use of improper accessories may
cause injury to you or damage to the tool

should be used to clean plastic parts.
16. MOUNT your table saw on a bench or stand before
performing any cutting operations. Refer to
ASSEMBLY AND ADJUSTMENTS on page 10.
17. NEVER CUT METALS or materials which may
make hazardous dust.
18. ALWAYS USE tN WELL-VENTILATED
AREA.
Remove sawdust frequently. Clean out sawdust
from the interior of the saw to prevent a potential
fire hazard. Attach a vacuum to the dust port for
additiona! sawdust removal.
19. NEVER LEAVE THE SAW running unattended. Do
not leave the saw unti! it comes to a complete stop.
20. FOR proper operation fotlow the instructions in this
Operator's Manual. Failure to provide sawdust fag
through and removal hole win allow sawdust to
build up in the motor area resulting in a fire hazard
and potentia! motor damage (see page 11 for
details).
21. DO NOT AUTHORIZE ADDITIONAL USERS to
operate this power tool without the accompanying
operators manual for which the user must read and
understand.
22. THE REAR OF THE TABLE INSERT MUST BE
FLUSH TO THE TABLE during all sawing
operations. A rubber adjusting spacer is provided
under the rear of the insert for this purpose.
12. PROVIDE ADEQUATE SUPPORT to the rear and
the sides of the saw table for long or wide
workpieces.
23. DO NOT USE A DADO BLADE LARGER THAN
6 inches in diameter and Y2 inch in width. Only
use a stackable dado blade. Do not use adjustable
or wobble dadoes.
13. AVOID KICKBACKS (work thrown back towards
you) by keeping the blade sharp, the rip fence
parallel to the saw blade and by keeping the splitter,
anti-kickback pawls and guards in place and
24. NEVER PERFORM A CUTTING OPERATION
USING BOTH the rip fence and the miter gauge at
the same time. This may cause kickback and
serious injury to the operator.
GROUND(NG
(NSTRUCT(ONS
IN THE EVENT OF A MALFUNCTION
OR
BREAKDOWN, grounding provides a path of least
resistance for electric currents and reduces the risk of
electric shock. This tool is equipped with an electrical
cord that has an equipmentogrounding conductor
and a grounding p(ug. The p(ug must be plugged
into a matching receptac(e that is proper(y instal(ed
and grounded in accordance with al! local codes and
ordinances.
DO NOT MODIFY THE PLUG PROVIDED. if it will not
fit the receptacle, have the proper receptac(e insta((ed
by a qualified electrician.
IMPROPER CONNECTION of the equipment grounding
conductor can result in risk of electric shock. The
conductor with the green insulation (with or without
yellow stripes) is the equipment grounding conductor.
(f repair or replacement of the e(ectric cord or plug is

the one i(Justrated in Fig. 1.
Fig. 1 shows a 3-pronged electrical plug and receptacle
that has a grounding conductor. If a properly grounded
receptac(e is not avai(abJe, an adapter (Fig. 2) can be
used to temporarily connect this plug to a 2ocontact
grounded receptacle. The adapter (Fig. 2) has a rigid
(ug extending from it that MUST be connected to a
permanent earth ground, such as a properly grounded
receptacle box. The Canadian EJectrica( Code prohibits
the use of adapters.
