Dress For Safety
Avoid Accidental Starting. Make sure switch is "OFF"
before plugging miter saw into a power outlet.
WEAR
YOUR
Plan your work.
Use The Right Tool. Don't force tool or attachment to
do a job it was not designed to do. Use a different tool
for any workpiece that can't be held in a solidly braced,
fixed position.
Any power miter saw can throw foreign objects into the
eyes. This can result in 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 retail stores.
Glasses or goggles not in compliance with ANSI Z87.1
could seriously hurt you when they break.
CAUTION: This machine is not designed for
cutting ferrous
metals (steel, iron and iron
based metals). Use this miter saw to cut only
wood, wood like products or soft metals like
aluminum. Other material may shatter, bind on
the blade, or create other dangers.

Safety Instructions
For Miter Saws (continued)
• Wear nonslip footwear.
• Rol! long sleeves above the elbow.
• Noise levels vary widely. To avoid possible hearing
damage, wear ear plugs or muffs when using miter
saw for hours at a time.
• Tie back long hair.
•

Do not wear loose clothing, gloves, neckties or jewelry (rings, wrist watches) They can get caught and
draw you into moving parts.
For dusty operations, wear a dust mask along with
safety goggles.
down to the table top.
Inspect your workpiece
• 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 miter saw table
or to help feed, support or pull the workpiece.
• Do not use this saw to cut pieces too small to let you
easily hold the work while you keep the thumb side
of your index (pointer) finger against the outside
edge of the fence.
• Make sure there are no nails or foreign objects in the
part of the workpiece to be cut.
Plan your work to avoid THROWBACKS - when the
workpiece binds on the blade and is torn from your
hands.
Plan the way you will hold the workpiece from start to
finish:
Avoid awkward operations and hand positions where a
sudden slip could cause fingers or hand to move into
the blade.
• When cutting irregularly shaped workpieces, plan
your work so it will not slip and pinch the blade and
be torn from your hands. A piece of molding, for
example, must lie flat or be held by a fixture or jig
that will not let it twist, rock or slip while being cut.
Don't Overreach. Keep good footing and balance.
Keep your face and body to one side of saw blade, out
of line with a possible throwback.
Never cut Freehand
•
• Cut only one workpiece at a time.
• Brace your workpiece solidly against the fence and
table top so it will not rock or twist during the cut.
• Make sure there's no debris between the workpiece
and its supports.
•
two,
• Keep the cut off piece free to move sideways after
it's cut off. Otherwise it could get wedged against the
blade and could be thrown violently.
• Clear everything except the workpiece and related
support devices off the table before turning the miter
On.
• Secure Work. Use clamps or a vise to help hold the
work when it's practical.
Use extra caution with large, very small or awkward
workpieces:
•
dowel rods,
while being
this, always

WARNING: If planning to cut aluminum or other
non-ferrous metals: Under adverse conditions,
the blade can grab and throw the workpiece
suddenly and unexpectedly. To avoid injury,
follow all applicable safety instructions, as you
normally would, and:
• Use only sawblades specifically recommended for non-ferrous metal cutting.
• Do not cut metal workpieces that must be
hand held. Use auxiliary clamps or other
equipment as needed.
° Cut non-ferrous metals only if you are experienced or under the supervision of an experienced person.
Make sure no gaps between the workpiece, fence
and table will let the workpiece shift after it is cut in
saw
Properly support round material such as
or tubing. They have a tendency to roll
cut, causing the blade to "bite." To avoid
use a fixture designed to properly hold
piece.
Use extra supports (tables, saw horses, blocks, etc.)
for any workpiece large enough to tip when not held
Whenever
the miter saw and workpiece.
Saw Is Running
Never confine the piece being cut off. Never hold it,
clamp it, touch it, or use length stops against it while the
blade is spinning. It must be free to move sideways on
its own. If confined,
it could get wedged against the
blade and thrown violently.
WARNING: Don't allow familiarity (gained from
frequent use of your miter saw) cause a careless mistake. A careless fraction of a second is
enough to cause a severe injury.
Let the blade reach full speed before cutting.
Don't Force Tool. It will do the job better and safer at
its designed rate. Feed the saw into the workpiece only
fast enough to let the blade cut without bogging down
or binding.
Before starting your cut, watch the miter saw while it
runs. If it makes an unfamiliar noise or vibrates a lot,
stop immediately. Turn the saw off. Unplug the saw. Do
not restart until finding and correcting the problem.
Keep Children Away. Keep all visitors a safe distance
from the miter saw. Make sure bystanders are clear of

Before freeing jammed material
• Turn switch"OFF".
Release the switch, and wait for all moving parts to
stop before moving your hands.
• Unplug the miter saw.
If blade doesn't stop within 6 seconds, unplug the
saw and follow the instructions
in the "Trouble
Shooting" section for fixing the blade brake before
using the saw again,
• Wait for all moving parts to stop.
After finishing a cut
•
Keep holding the power head down.
Before Leaving The Saw:
Never Leave Tool Running Unattended. Turn power
off. Wait for all moving parts to stop.
Make workshop
child-proof.
Lock the shop.
Disconnect master switches. Store tool away from children and others not qualified to use the tool.

Motor Safety Protection
IMPORTANT: To avoid motor damage, this motor
should be blown out or vacuumed frequently to keep
sawdust from interfering with normal motor ventilation.
a. Motor Is Overloaded-Overloading
can occur if
you feed too rapidly or make too many start/stops
in a short time.
1. Connect this tool to a 120v, 15-amp branch circuit
with a 15-amp time delay fuse or circuit breaker.
Using the wrong size fuse can damage the motor.
b. Voltages not more than 10% above or below the
nameplate voltage can handle normal loads. For
heavy loads, however, the voltage at motor terminals must equal the voltage specified on nameplate.
2. If the motor won't start, release the trigger switch
immediately. UNPLUG THE TOOL. Check the saw
blade to make sure it turns freely, If the blade is free,
try to start the motor again. If the motor still does not
start, refer to the "Motor Trouble-Shooting Chart."
5. Most motor troubles may be traced to loose or incorrect connections, overload, low voltage (such as
small size wire in the supply circuit) or to overly long
supply circuit wire. Always check the connections,
the load and the supply circuit whenever motor
doesn't work well. Check wire sizes and length with
the Wire Size Chart below.
3. If the motor suddenly stalls while cutting wood,
release the trigger switch, unplug the tool, and free
the blade from the wood. The motor may now be
restarted and the cut finished.

To Avoid Injury From Jams, Slips Or Thrown Pieces
•
•
•
Use Only Recommended Accessories. (See page
24). Consult this Owner's manual for recommended
accessories. Follow the instructions that come with
the accessories. The use of improper accessories
may cause risk of injury to persons.
•
Choose the right 8-1/4 inch diameter blade for the
material and the type of cutting you plan to do.
Make sure the blade is sharp, undamaged and properly aligned. With the saw unplugged, push the powerhead all the way down. Hand spin the blade and
check for clearance. Tilt the power-head to 45
degree bevel and repeat the check. If the blade hits
anything, make the adjustments
shown in the
Plan Ahead To Protect Your Eyes, Hands,
Maintaining Maximum Cutting Capacity section.
Make sure the blade and arbor collars are clean.
•
Make sure the co!lars' recessed sides are facing the
blade.
•
Using 1/2-inch box end wrench, make sure the arbor
cap screw is firmly hand tightened.
Make sure all clamps and locks are tight and there is
no excessive play in any parts.
•
•
Keep work area clean. Cluttered areas and benches invite accidents. Floor must not be slippery.
To avoid burns or other fire damage, never use the
miter saw near flammable liquids, vapors or gases.
Face, Ears
Avoid Accidental Starting. Make sure switch is "OFF"
before plugging miter saw into a power outlet.
Know your miter saw. Read and understand the
owner's manual and labels affixed to the tool. Learn its
application and limitations as well as the specific potential hazards peculiar to this tool.
To avoid injury from accidental contact with moving
parts, don't do layout, assembly, or setup work on the
miter saw while any parts are moving.
14
Plan your work.
Use The Right Tool. Don't force tool or attachment to do
a job it was not designed to do. Use a different tool for
any workpiece that can't be held in a solidly braced,
fixed position.
CAUTION: This machine is not designed for
cutting ferrous metals (steel, iron and iron
based metals). Use this miter saw to cut only
wood, wood like products or soft metals like
aluminum. Other material may shatter, bind on
the blade, or create other dangers.
CAUTION: When cutting any metals, sparks or
hot fragments could cause a fire. To avoid this,
disconnect any dust collecting hose from the
miter saw, and remove all traces of wood dust
from inside dust traps in the miter saw.
Dress for safety
Any power miter saw can throw foreign objects into the
eyes. This can result in permanent eye damage. Wear
safety goggles (not glasses) that comply with ANSI
Z87.1 (shown on package). Everyday eyeglasses have
only impact resistance lenses. They are not safety
glasses. Safety goggles are avialable at Sears retail
stores. Glasses or goggles not in compliance with ANSI
Z87.1 could seriously hurt you when they break.
•
Plan the way you will hold the workpiece from start to
finish:
Tie back long hair.
•
Roll long sleeves above the elbow.
•
Noise levels vary widely. To avoid possible hearing
damage, wear ear plugs or muffs when using miter
saw for hours at a time.
•
For dusty operations, wear a dust mask along with
safety goggles.
•
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 miter saw table
or to help feed, support or pull the workpiece.
•
Do not use this saw to cut pieces too small to let you
easily hold the work while you keep the thumb side
of your index (pointer) finger against the outside
edge of the fence.
• When cutting irregularly shaped workpieces, plan
you work so it will not slip and pinch the blade and
be torn from your hands. A piece of molding, for
example, must lie flat or be held by a fixture or jig
that will not let it twist, rock or slip while being cut.
• Properly support round material such as dowel rods,
or tubing. They have a tendency to roll while being
cut, causing the blade to "bite". To avoid this, always
use a fixture designed to properly hold your workpiece.
Avoid awkward operations and hand positions where a
sudden slip could cause fingers or hand to move into
the blade.
Don't Overreach. Keep good footing and balance.
Keep your face and body to one side, out of line with a
possible throwback.
Never cut Freehand:
•
Brace your workpiece solidly against the fence and
table top so it will not rock or twist during the cut.
•
Make sure there's no debris between the workpiece
and its supports.
•
Make sure no gaps between the workpiece, fence
and table will let the workpiece shift after it is cut in
two.
•
Keep the cut off piece free to move sideways after
it's cut off. Otherwise, it could get wedged against
theblade and thrown violently.
•
Clear everything except the workpiece and related
support devices off the table before turning the miter
WARNING: If planning to cut aluminum or other
non-ferrous metals: Under adverse conditions,
the blade can grab and throw the workpiece
suddenly and unexpectedly. To avoid injury,
follow all applicable safety instructions, as you
normally would, and:
• Use only sawblades specifically
recommended for non-ferrous metal cutting.
• Do not cut metal workpieces that must be
hand held. Use auxiliary clamps or other
equipment as needed.
• Cut non-ferrous metals only if you are experienced or under the supervision of an experienced person.
saw on.
Secure Work. Use clamps or a vise to help hold the
work when it's practical.
Use extra caution with large, very small or awkward
workpieces:
•
•
Make sure there are no nails or foreign objects in the
part of the workpiece to be cut.
Plan your work to avoid THROWBACKS - when the
workpiece binds on the blade and is torn from your
hands.
•
draw you into moving parts.
Wear nonslip footwear.
Do not wear loose clothing, gloves, neckties or jewelry (rings, wrist watches). They can get caught and

•
Use extra supports (tables, saw horses, blocks, etc.)
for any workpieces large enough to tip when not
held down to the table top.

Safety Instructions
Whenever
For Basic Saw Operations (continued)Don't Force Tool. It will do the job better and safer at
its designed rate. Feed the saw into the workpiece only
fast enough to let the blade cut without bogging down
or binding.
Saw Is Running
WARNING: Don't allow familiarity (gained from
frequent use of your miter saw) cause a careless mistake. A careless fraction of a second is
enough to cause a severe injury.
Before freeing jammed material:
• Turn miter saw "OFF" by releasing trigger switch.
• Unplug the miter saw.
Before starting your cut, watch the miter saw while it
runs. If it makes an unfamiliar noise or vibrates a lot,
stop immediately. Turn the saw off. Unplug the saw. Do
not restart until finding and correcting the problem.
• Wait for all moving parts to stop.
Keep Children Away. Keep all visitors a safe distance
from the miter saw. Make sure bystanders are clear of
the miter saw and workpiece.
• Release the switch, and wait for all moving parts to
stop before moving your hands.
After finishing a cut:
• Keep holding the power head down.
• If blade doesn't stop within 6 seconds, unplug the
saw and follow the instructions
in the Trouble
Shooting section for fixing the blade brake before
using the saw again.
Never confine the piece being cut off. Never hold it,
clamp it, touch it, or use length stops against it while the
blade is spinning. It must be free to move sideways on
its own. If confined, it could get wedged against the
blade and thrown violently.
Let the blade reach full speed before cutting.
Make workshop child-proof. Lock the shop. Disconnect
master switches. Store tool away from children and others not qualified to use the tool.
Before Leaving The Saw
Never Leave Tool Running Unattended. Turn power off.
Wait for moving parts to stop.
Basic Saw Operations
WARNING: For your convenient use, your saw
has a blade brake. The brake is not a safety
device. Never rely on it to replace proper use of
the guard on your saw. If the blade does not
stop within 6 seconds, unplug the saw and follow the instructions in the Trouble Shooting
section for fixing the brake before using saw
again.
Body and Hand Position
Proper positioning of your body and hands when operating the miter saw will make cutting easier and safer.
Never place hands near cutting area. Place hand at
least 4" from path of blade. Hold workpiece firmly to the
fence to prevent movement toward the blade. Keep
hands in position until trigger has been released and
the blade has completely stopped. Before making a cut,
make a "dry run" with the power off so you can see the
path of the blade.
WARNING: Do not try to cut short pieces, you
cannot properly support the workpiece and
keep your hold down hand the required distance from the blade.

Cutting Bowed Material
Before cutting a workpiece, check to make sure it is not
bowed. If it is bowed the workpiece must be positioned
and cut as illustrated. Do not position workpiece incorrectly or try to cut the workpiece without the support of
the fence. This will cause pinching of the workpiece on
the blade. The workpiece could suddenly jump or move
and your hand could hit the blade.
CORRECT

18
Workpiece Support
Long pieces need extra supports. The supports should
be placed along the workpiece so the workpiece does
not sag and your hand holding the workpiece is positioned 4" or more from the blade path. The support
should let the workpiece lay fiat on the base and work
table during the cutting operation.
\'
NOTE: When mounted on a large flat surface, the
miter saw table is 3-1/2" high. Two finished 2x4's on
their sides can be used as work support extension.
Auxiliary
Fence
Certain types of molding need a fence face extension
due to the size and position of the workpiece, Slots are
provided in the fence to attach an auxiliary fence. Get a
straight piece of wood typically 1/2 inch thick by 3-1/4
inches high by 19-1/4 inches long. To attach auxiliary
fence, place the piece of wood on the miter saw fence.
Mark the locations from the backside of the miter saw
fence. Drill .200"-.250" holes, then countersink the
holes on front of wood to receive #10 flat head screws.
Attach the auxiliary fence securely and make a full
depth cut. This will create the blade slot. Check for
interference between the auxiliary fence and lower
blade guard. Correct any interference before proceeding. The auxiliary fence is used with the saw in the 0 °
bevel position. If a bevel cut is desired, the auxiliary
fence will have to be removed.

Helpful Hints When Cutting Compound Miters
Tips for Cutting Compound Miters on Picture Frames and
Boxes (Model 113.235221 Only)
A compound miter is a cut requiring both a miter setting and
bevel setting. A compound miter is used for making frames or
boxes that have sloping sides and are wide at one end and
narrow at the opposite end. Compound miters are "tricky" to
make because the miter setting and bevel setting are directly
related to each other. Every time the miter setting is changed
the bevel setting must also be adjusted; likewise every adjustment to bevel requires a corresponding adjustment to miter.
Because it may take several tries to obtain the desired angle
it as advisable to make test cuts in a scrap piece of material.
Tips for Cutting Moldings
A compound miter saw is also excellent for cutting molding.
Molding is sometimes difficult because in order to fit correctly
it must be precisely cut.
Cutting Base Moldings
Base moldings and many other moldings can be cut on a
miter saw. The set up of the saw depends on your molding
and your application as shown. Always make sure moldings
rest firmly against fence and table.
Compound
Cutting Crown Moldings
Plan Ahead so that you are not tempted to reach across saw
blade to steady newly severed workpiece.
Crown Moldings can be cut using two methods, workpiece
standing up (as it would be mounted on wall) and workpiece
lying flat on table (see chart and illustration).
Most Standard (U.S.) crown molding has a top rear angle
(angle that fits next to ceiling) of 52 ° and a bottom rear angle
(angle that fits against wall) of 38 ° .
1. Workpiece standing up, usually cut inverted from ceiling
mounted orientation. Fixturing: Optional fence mounted
crown molding jigs which locate workpiece. See recommended accessories. (Table clamp is helpful). Hand is
holding workpiece to fence when the cuts are made. All
cuts are made at 0° bevel setting and 45° miter (see illustration).
2. Workpiece
lying flat for compound cut (see chart and
illustration).

exactly as original assembly to avoid electrical hazards.
WARNING: When cleaning lower guard unplug
the saw from the outlet to avoid unexpected
start-up.
Replacing Carbon Brushes
Saw Dust
The carbon brushes furnished will last approximately 50
hours of running time or 10,000 on/off cycles. Replace
both carbon brushes when either has less than 1/4"
length of carbon remaining. To inspect or replace first
unplug the saw. Then remove the motor cap on the end
of the motor by removing 2 screws. Remove the lead
wires from the tabs on the brushes, then pull out the
brushes. To reassemble reverse the procedure. Tighten
the screws snugly but do not overtighten.
Periodically, sawdust will accumulate under the work
table and base. This could cause difficulty in the movement of the work table when setting up a miter cut.
Frequently blow out or vacuum up the sawdust.
WARNING: If blowing sawdust, wear proper
eye protection to keep debris from blowing into
eyes.
Lubrication
All the motor bearings in this tool are lubricated with a
sufficient amount of high grade lubricant for the life of
the unit under normal operating conditions, therefore,
no further lubrication is required. (See below.)
