•
Know your tool. Learn the tool's operation, application and
specific limitations.
°
•
Handle workpiece correctly. Press firmly against table.
Protect hands from possible injury.
Use extra caution when the guard assembly is removed for
resawing, dadoing, or rabbeting--replace
guard as soon
as that operation is completed.
•
•
Turn machine off if it jams. Blade jams when it digs too
deeply into workpiece. (Motor force keeps it stuck in the
work.)
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.
•
Never place your face or body in line with the cutting tool.
•
Feed work into the blade only as recommended
"Operation"
•
Never place your fingers or hands in path of saw blade or
other cutting tool.
•
For rip or rip-type cuts, the following end of a workpiece 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 workpiece 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, workpiece must be herd down
on table and against fence with a push stick, push block,
or featherboards, as applicable (see Figures l a and lb,
page 4).

WARNING:
For your own safety, do not operate your saw until it
is completely assembled and installed according to instructions.
STABILITY OF SAW
If there is any tendencyfor the saw to tip over or move during
certain cuttingoperations,such as cuttingextremelyheavy
panels or long heavy boards, the saw shouldbe bolteddown.
If you attach any kind of extensionsover 24" wide to either
end of the saw, make sure you either bolt the saw to the floor,
as appropriate, or support the outerend ofthe extension from
the benchor floor, as appropriate.
The push stick and push block examples shown below are useful for keeping hands and fingers away from saw blade during
ripping, rabbeting and dadoing. Apply downward pressure and
push workpiece through the cut and past the blades. Several
other configurations may be suitable for safe operation.
LOCATION
The saw should be positioned so neither the operator nor a
casual observer is forced to stand in line with the saw blade.
Featherboards are used to keep the work in contact with the rip
fence or table during the cutting operation. Use of featherboards
can help to prevent kickbacks and binding. Featherboards
should be used for all "non thru-sawing" operations.
KICKBACKS
A kickback occurs during a rip-type operation when a part or
all of workpiece is thrown back violently toward operator.
Keep your face and body to one side of the saw blade, out of
line with a possible kickback.
•
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 saw blade or other cutting tool.
Kickbacks and possible injury from them can usually be avoided by:
• Maintaining rip fence parallel to saw blade.
•
Keeping saw blade sharp. Replace or sharpen anti-kickback pawls when points become dull.
•
Do not perform layout, assembly, or setup work on the
table while the cutting tool is rotating.
•
Keeping saw blade guard, spreader, and anti-kickback
pawls in place and operating properly. The spreader must
be in alignment with the saw blade and the pawls must
stop a kickback once it has started. Check their action
before ripping.
•
Do not perform any operation freehand--always
use either
rip fence or miter gauge to position and guide the work.
•
Never use the rip fence when cross-cutting or the miter gauge
when ripping. Do not use rip fence as a length stop. Never
hold onto or touch free-end of workpiece or a free-piece that
is cut off, while power is ON and/or saw blade is rotating.
•
Shut the saw OFF and disconnect power source when
removing the table insert, changing the cutting too],
removing or replacing the blade guard, or making adjustments.
°
Not ripping work that is twisted or warped or does not
have a straight edge to guide along the rip fence.
•
Not releasing work until you have pushed it all the way
past the saw blade.
•
Using a push stick for ripping widths less than 6 inches.
°
Not confining the cutoff piece when ripping or crosscutting.
Provide adequate support to the rear and sides of the saw
table for wide or long workpieces.
PROTECTION:
EYES, HANDS, FACE, BODY, EARS
• If any part of your saw is missing, malfunctioning,
or has
been damaged or broken (such as the motor switch, electronic controls, other operating control, a safety device or
power cord), cease operating immediately until the particular part is properly repaired or replaced.
•
Wear safety goggles that comply with United States ANSI
Z87.1 and a face shield or dust mask if operation is dusty.
Wear ear plugs or muffs during extended periods of operation.
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 spreader in place for all thrusawing operations (sawing entirely thru work) and by
removing all loose pieces from the table with a long stick
of wood immediately after they are cut off.
3
ib
Plastic and composition materials (like hardboard) 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 attentive to following
proper setup and cutting procedures for ripping. Do not
stand, or permit anyone else to stand, in line with a potential kickback.
•
If you stall or jam the saw blade in the workpiece, turn saw
OFF and remove the workpiece from the saw blade.
Check to see if the saw blade is parallel to the miter
gauge grooves and if the spreader is in proper alignment
with the saw blade. If ripping at the time, check to see if
the rip fence is parallel with the saw blade. Readjust as
required.
•
Do not remove small pieces of cutoff material that may
become trapped inside the blade guard while the saw is
running. This could endanger your hands or cause kickback. Turn saw OFF and wait until blade stops.
Use extra care when ripping wood with twisted grain or
wood that is twisted or bowed--it may rock on table and
pinch saw blade.

USE ONLY ACCESSORIES
•
Crosscutting operations are worked more conveniently and
with greater safety if an auxiliary wood facing is attached
to miter gauge using holes provided. However, facing must
not interfere with proper functioning of saw blade guard.
°
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, blade flange 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.
•
Do not use any blade or other cutting tool marked for operating speed less than 4000 RPM. Never use a cutting tool
larger in diameter than diameter for which saw was
designed. For greatest safety and efficiency when ripping,
use maximum diameter blade for which saw is designed,
since under these conditions spreader is nearest the
blade.

RAIL ASSEMBLY
Refer to Figure 11, page 22.
° Insert two M8 x 28 hex head bolts and two M8 x 25 hex
head bolts into the T-slot of the right front guide rail (Key
Nos. 16, 21, and 22) (The two longer bolts will attach to
the table; the two shorter bolts attach to the table
extension.)
CHECK TABLE ALIGNMENT
Refer to Figures 3 and 13, pages 7 and 26.
•
Saws are shipped from the factory with the table adjusted
so the miter gauge slots are parallel to the saw blade.
However, in order to obtain the best results from the saw, it
is suggested this adjustment be checked before operating.
°
A simple method of checking alignment is as follows: Bolt
or clamp a dowel rod or similar object to miter gauge (a
combination square can be substituted). Pick out a tooth
on front of blade and set the dowel to it so it is just touching. Move same tooth to back of blade.
•
•
NOTE: Hand tighten all hardware during rail assembly. Do not
completely tighten hardware until all rails are mounted.
Gauge this tooth with the dowel rod. If the tooth is in the
same position, relative to the miter gauge, the table is parallel with the blade. In short, the miter gauge slots must be
parallel with the blade. This means that when measuring
distance between blade and slot at the front and rear of
the blade, the distances will be equal (see Figure 3).
•
Attach the left front rail and both rear rails (Key Nos. 18, 32
and 34) in the same manner.
•
Position rails so that rails are butted together and the joint
between rails is aligned with the blade.
Secure all hardware completely.
Use a straight edge to check level and flatness between
right and left rail and make certain that both front rails are
parallel to the table surface.
•
•
•
NOTE: Be positive to measure the distance or make the test
on the same tooth of the saw blade in both front and rear
positions.
•
•
•
If an adjustment is necessary, proceed as follows: (Refer
to Figure 13). Loosen the hex head bolts and lock washers (Nos. 36, 37 and 38) of the trunnion. Shift trunnion
until a position is found where the saw blade is parallel to
the miter gauge slots.
NOTE: Saw blade should also be centered within its table
insert opening.
,
After front rails are adjusted level and flat, tighten the
screws completely.
Repeat above steps for rear rails.
Attach the brace (Key No. 30) to the far right end of the
rails using four hex head bolts, flat washers, lock washers
and cap nuts (Key Nos. 26-29).

workpiece and hold it, the pawls must be sharpened. (See
Maintenance section, page 13.)
COMPOUND MITER CUTTING
Performed with miter gauge, is a combination of miter cutting
and bevel crosscutting.
Cut is made at angle otherthan 90° to
both the edge and flat side of wood.
°
Have blade extend approximately '/8" above top of workpiece. Additional blade exposure increases hazard
potential.

the piece.
WARNING:
When possible, place the fence on the right side
of the blade so that the blade is tilted away from the fence
and hands. Keep your hands clear of the blade and use a
pushstick to feed the workpiece if there is less than 6"
between the fence and the blade.
Always lower blade below the table level when machine is
not in use.
TYPES OF CUTS/OPERATIONS
Performed with rip fence, the same as ripping. However, blade
is set at an angle other than 90 ° .
CROSSCUTTING
RESAWlNG
Performed with rip fence, is known as ripping a piece of wood
through its thickness. Do not attempt to resaw bowed or
warped material.
WARNING;
Use caution when starting the cut to prevent
binding of the guard against the workpiece.
Performed with miter gauge set at "0". Crosscutting is known
as cutting work across the grain at 90 °, or square with both
the edge and the flat side of the wood.
NOTE: It may be necessary to remove blade guard and use
work supports as well as push blocks when performing this
operation.

PLOUGHING
Performed with rip fence, is grooving with grain long way of
workpiece. Use proper hold downs and feed devices.
MPORTANT: Your saw is only as accurate and efficient as
blade or cutting tool used.
First, be certain to use the appropriate type of cutting tool for
the operation to be performed. Second, it is strongly recommended that high-quality blades and cutting tools be used. Be
certain blades and cutting tools are kept sharp and in good
working order. Check blades periodically and replace or
sharpen if necessary.
RABBETING
Performed with either miter gauge or rip fence. Rabbeting is
known as cutting out a section of the corner of a piece of
material, across an end or along an edge. To make a rabbet
requires cuts which do not go all the way through the material. Therefore, blade guard must be removed. Install blade
guard immediately upon completion of rabbeting operation.
Rabbet cuts can also be made using dado head.
WARNING:
Do not attempt under any circumstances, to
service, repair, dismantle, or disassemble any mechanical
or electrical components without physically disconnecting all
power sources.
DADOING
Performed with either miter gauge or rip fence. Dadoing is
done with a set of blades (dado set) rather than standard saw
blades. The dado set is used to groove wood similar to
ploughing and rabbeting. However, the dado set allows operator to remove more material in one pass. The operator, with a
dado set, can vary width of cut up to _6".
CLEANING
Clean off any preservative on bright (machined) parts with
appropriate solvent (mineral spirits). Avoid getting cleaning
fluid on any rubber parts as they tend to deteriorate
rubber.
Instructions for operating dado set are contained in owner's
manual furnished with dado set. Dadoing requires cuts which
do not go all the way through material. Therefore, blade guard
must be removed. Dado sets have different characteristics

than saw blades. As a result, saw must be fitted with special
parts that are furnished with saw (Dado Insert, Part No.
31158.OO).
•
After cleaning, lubricate unpainted surfaces with a light
application of medium consistency machine oil. This lubrication should be repeated at least once every six months.
When using a dado set, the following parts must be substituted dado table insert (not included).
NOTE: Instead of oil, a good quality paste wax can be applied
to rip fence and table surface. Paste wax will enhance movement of workpieces. In addition to providing lubrication, paste
wax will help prevent rusting.
IMPORTANT: Always use correct insert. When using the
dado set, use caution. Use featherboards and push sticks as
applicable.
•
Keep your machine and your workshop clean. Do not allow
sawdust to accumulate on saw or inside cabinet.
Frequently vacuum or blow out any sawdust that may
accumulate within cabinet.
•
Be certain motor and internal mechanisms
WARNING:
Always immediately replace the standard blade,
blade guard and blade insert when you are finished dadoing.
CUTTING OVERSIZED WORKPIECES
When cutting long workpieces or large panels, always support
workpiece that is not on table. Use adjustable roller stand or
make simple support by clamping a piece of plywood to saw
horse. Add facings to miter gauge or rip fence as needed.

BLADE SELECTION
Blade selection is based on type of material being cut and
how it will be cut. There are three general types of saw
blades: rip saw blades cut with grain of wood, cut-off saw
blades cut across grain, and combination saw blades cut with
grain, across grain and any angle to grain.
°
.
Blades vary in many aspects. When selecting a blade, the fo!lowing blade characteristics should match up with operation to
be performed and type of material to be cut: type of steel;
quality of steel; tooth style; tooth set; carbide tipped; grind;
number of teeth and size.

Replace beltsand worn parts as needed. If powercords
are worn, cut, or damagedin any way,have them
replaced immediately.
Make sure teeth of anti-kickbackpawls are alwayssharp.
Sharpen dull teeth usinga few lightstrokes of a smooth
