Rip Lock
Lock
The rip lock is used to hold the motor and
blade at a fixed position along the radial arm.
It is used during ripp{ng to hold the blade a
desired distance from the fence while the
workpiece
is fed through. It is used before
and after each crosscut to keep the blade
from moving forward on its own.
The swivel lock is used to hold the blade in
the cros,_cut, in-rip, or out-rip positions, and
to position the blade for molding or edging.
To unlock the swivel lock, stand facing the
saw handle and pull the swivel toc/," toward
you, (Figure 30)
To unlock the rip lock, pull the handle

Crosscutting
Crosscutting
is used to cut a workpiece
to
length. The workpiece
is held against the
fence. The saw blade is pulled through the
workpiece.
Cuts are usually made across the
grain of the workpiece.

of Crosscuts
The basic types of crosscuts are shown below.

Ripping
i
Ripping is used to change the width of the
workpiece by sawing along its length. The
workpiece is fed into the saw blade. The
fence is used as a guide. Rip cuts are usually
made with the grain of the workpiece.
Saw Positions
When
to Use In-Rip
The in-rip saw position provides better
visibility of both the workpiece and your
hands than does the out-rip saw position.
The only time you should use the out-rip saw
position is when the workpiece is 14 inches
or wider. Use the in-rip position for all
workpieces
less than 14 inches wide.
for Ripping
There are two saw blade positions for making
rip cuts: in-rip and out-rip.
in in-rip position, motor is toward the front
of the table, and blade is toward the fence.

6. Push the workpiece
a few inches in the
direction of the cut and then pull the
workpiece back toward you. The pawls
should have grabbed the wood and stopped
the kickback motion by grabbing into the
workpiece.
If they did not, repeat adjustments until the pawls grab the workpiece.
If
the pawls fail to grab the workpiece, sharpen
or replace them. If that fails to work, use a
featherboard.

Auxiliary Fence and Push
Block
An auxiliary fence must be used if the blade
is positioned
between 1/2 inch and 2 inches
from the fence during ripping. An auxiliary
fence must always be used with a push block.
Their purpose is to keep your hands away
from the saw blade. They are also needed
when you use the molding head.

Lower Blade Guard Safety Information ...............
WARNING
IMPORTANT
The following safety information
and instructions apply to all blades and accessories.
Remove the lower blade guard for ALL other
types of cuts except repetitive 90 ° crosscutting.
Using the lower guard other than for repetitive
90 ° crosscutting will increase the risk of certain
hazards:
The lower blade guard is required by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration
(OSHA) if the radial saw is used commercially.
The lower blade guard is intended for use only in
repetitive 90 ° crosscutting.
During rip and bevel cuts the workpiece or
narrow cut-off pieces can be pinched between
the guard and the blade. Workpiece or cut-off
pieces can kickback.
Repetitive 90 ° Crosscutting is the repeated
and continuous cutting of many pieces of
lumber to the same length with the saw
placed in the 90 ° crosscut position.

• Workpiece or cut-off pieces can be violently

and
CAUTION
• the guard is resting on the table so the leading
and trailing teeth of the blade are not exposed
from the sides.
The lower blade guard can get caught or jam in
fence or table kerfs.
The lower blade guard ONLY provides protection against minor cuts and bruises that occur
from contact with the fiat sides of the spinning
blade.

Lubrication
Your saw is precision built and should be
kept properly lubricated. Before describing
the various points which may periodically require lubrication, it is more important to first
mention the points which should not be lubricated.
When you receive your new Craftsman radial
saw, it requires no lubrication.
The radial
saw has been partially aligned and all bearings are lubricated
and sealed for life. In
time, however, in order to keep your saw in
perfect working order and accurate, it will be
necessa U to lubricate and realign. In fact
your radial saw needs more of a cleaning
than a lubrication.
