adjusting wrenches are removed from the tool
before turning ON.
16 NEVER LEAVE TOOL RUNNING UNATTENDED.
TURN THE POWER "OFF". Do not leave the tool
before it comes to a complete stop.
17 NEVER STAND ON TOOL. Serious injury could
occur if the tool is tipped or if the cutting tool is
unintentionally contacted.
Look for this symbol that identifies important
safety precautions. It means CAUTION!
BECOME ALERT! YOUR SAFETY IS INVOLVED!
18 DO NOT OVERREACH. Keep proper footing and
balance at all times.
NEVER OPERATE THIS MACHINE WITHOUT THE
SAFETY GUARD IN PLACE FOR ALL THROUGH
SAWING OPERATIONS.
19. 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 IN A DANGEROUS ENVIRONMENT
such as damp or wet locations or exposure to rain.
Keep work area well lighted.
DO NOT use power tools in the presence of
flammable liquids or gases.
6.
KEEP WORK AREA CLEAN. Cluttered areas and
benches invite accidents.
7.
KEEP CHILDREN AWAY. All visitors should be
kept at a safe distance from the work area.
8.
DO NOT FORCE THE TOOL. It will do the job
better and safer at the rate for which it was designed.
9.
USE THE RIGHT TOOL. Don't force the tool or
attachment to do a job for which it is not designed.
20. CHECK FOR DAMAGED OR LOOSE PARTS.
Before further use of the tool, 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, loose binding of moving parts, 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.
21. MAKE WORKSHOP CHILD PROOF with padlocks,
master switches or by removing starter keys.
22. 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.
10. WEAR PROPER APPAREL DO NOT wear loose
clothing, gloves, neckties, rings, bracelets or other
jewelry that may get caught in moving parts. Nonslip footwear is recommended. Wear protective hair
covering to contain long hair.
23. USE DUST COLLECTION SYSTEM wherever
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.
11. WEAR A FACE MASK OR DUST MASK. Sawing,
cutting and sanding operations produce dust.
24. ALWAYS WEAR EYE PROTECTION. Any power
tool can throw foreign objects into your eyes that
could cause permanent eye damage. ALWAYS wear
safety goggles (not glasses) that comply with ANSI
safety standard Z87. t. Everyday glasses have only
impact resistant lenses. They ARE NOT safety
glasses.
NOTE: Glasses or goggles not in compliance with
ANSI Z87.1 could cause serious injury when they
break.
12. DISCONNECT TOOLS before servicing and when
changing accessories such as blades, cutters, etc.
13. REDUCE THE RISK OF UNINTENTIONAL
STARTING. Make sure the switch is in the OFF
position before plugging into the power supply.
14. 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.
25. DIRECTION OF FEED. Feed work into a blade or
cutter against the direction of rotation of the blade or
cutter only.
,
2.
,
,
5.
12. PROVIDE ADEQUATE SUPPORT to the rear and
the sides of the saw table for long or wide workpieces.
ALWAYS USE SAW BLADE GUARD, splitter and
anti-kickback pawls for every operation for which they
can be used, including through sawing. Through
sawing operations are those in which the blade cuts
completely through the workpiece when ripping or
crosscutting.
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, antikickback pawls and guards in place, aligned and
functioning. Do not release work before it has
passed all the way past the saw blade. Do not rip
work that is twisted, warped or does not have a
straight edge to guide it along the fence.
ALWAYS HOLD WORK FIRMLY against the miter
gauge or rip fence,
USE A PUSH STICK when required. Always use a
push stick especially when ripping narrow stock.
Refer to ripping instructions in this Operator's Manual
where the push stick is covered in detail. A pattern for
making your own push stick is included on page 23.
14, AVOID AWKWARD OPERATIONS and hand
positions where a sudden slip could cause your hand
to move into the saw blade.
NEVER PERFORM ANY OPERATION "FREE
HAND", which means using only your hands to
support or guide the workpiece. Always use
either the fence or the miter gauge to position
and guide the work.
15, NEVER USE SOLVENTS to clean plastic parts.
Solvents could possibly dissolve or otherwise
damage the material. Only a soft damp cloth should
be used to clean plastic parts.
WARNING: FREEHAND CUTTING IS THE MAJOR
CAUSE OF KICK-BACK & FINGER/HAND
AMPUTATIONS.
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.
NEVER STAND or have any part of your body in line
with the path of the saw blade. Keep your hands out
of the saw blade path.
6.
NEVER REACH behind or over the cutting tool for
any reason,
7.
REMOVE the rip fence when crosscutting.
8.
DO NOT USE a molding head with this saw.
9.
FEED WORK INTO THE BLADE against the
direction of rotation only.
18, ALWAYS USE IN 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
additional sawdust removal.
19, NEVER LEAVE THE SAW running unattended. Do
not leave the saw until it comes to a complete stop.
20, For proper operation follow the instructions in this
Operator's Manual entitled ASSEMBLY AND
ADJUSTMENTS (Page 10). Failure to provide
sawdust fall-through and removal hole will allow
sawdust to build up in the motor area resulting in a
fire hazard and potential motor damage.
10. NEVER use the rip fence as a cut-off gauge when
crosscutting.
11, NEVER ATTEMPT TO FREE A STALLED SAW
BLADE without first turning the saw OFF. Turn
power switch OFF immediately to prevent motor
damage.

POWER SUPPLY
REQUIREMENTS
GROUNDING
To avoid electrical hazards, fire hazards or damage to
the table saw, use proper circuit protection. Always
use a separate electrical circuit for your tools. This
power tool is wired at the factory for 120V operation.
Connect it to a 120V, 15 Amp circuit and use a 15
Amp time delay fuse or circuit breaker. To avoid
shock or fire, replace the cord immediately if it is
worn, cut or damaged in any way.
EXTENSION
IN THE EVENT OF A MALFUNCTION OR
BREAKDOWN, grounding provides a path of least
resistance for electric current and reduces the risk of
electric shock. This saw is equipped with an electric cord
that has an equipment grounding conductor and a
grounding plug. The plug MUST be plugged into a
matching receptacle that is properly installed and
grounded in accordance with ALL local codes and
ordinances.
CORD REQUIREMENTS
Any extension cord must be GROUNDED for safe
operation.

GUIDELINES
INSTRUCTIONS
FOR EXTENSION
CORDS
Any extension cord used for power tools MUST be
grounded (3-wire with two flat prongs and one round
ground prong).
DO NOT MODIFY THE PLUG PROVIDED. If it will not fit
the receptacle, have the proper receptacle installed by a
qualified electrician.
IMPROPER CONNECTION of the equipment grounding
conductor can result in risk of electric shock. The
conductor (wire) with the green insulation (with or without
yellow stripes) is the equipment grounding conductor. If
repair or replacement of the electric cord or plug is
necessary, DO NOT connect the equipment grounding
conductor to a live terminal.
CHECK with a qualified electrician or service personnel if
you do not completely understand the grounding
instructions, or if you are not sure the saw is properly
grounded.
Use only 3-wire extension cords that have 3-prong
grounding plugs and 3-pole grounding receptacles that
accept the saw's plug. Repair or replace damaged or
worn cords immediately.
Make sure the extension cord is in good condition. When
using an extension cord, make sure you use one heavy
enough to carry the current the tool will draw. An
undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage resulting
in loss of power and overheating. The table above shows
the correct size to use according to extension cord length
and nameplate ampere rating. If in doubt, use the next
heavier gauge cord. The smaller the gauge number the
heavier the cord.
NOTE: The 12 to 16 amp rating is correct for this tool. It
is highlighted in the table above.
3-Prong Plug
Grounding Lug
Be sure your extension cord is properly wired and in good
condition. Always replace a damaged extension cord or
have it repaired by a qualified person before using it.
Protect your extension cords from sharp objects,
excessive heat and damp or wet areas.
Before connecting the saw to the extension cord, make
sure the saw switch is turned OFF.

3. To change the position of the fence, lift up on the
handle to unlock, and slide the fence to the
desired position, then push the handle down to
lock.
4. To check the rip fence adjustment, place the fence
along one edge of the miter gauge groove, and
lock the handle. It should be parallel to the miter
groove to provide accurate cuts.
RIP FENCE INDICATOR (FIG. O)
NOTE: The rip fence indicator points to the scale on
the front of the table saw. Measurement shown by the
indicator will provide the user with accuracy up to 1/16
of an inch. Measurement shown is the distance from
the blade to the side of the fence closest to the blade.
If adjustment is needed to make it parallel:
1. Loosen the two hex wrench bolts (4) on the top of
the rip fence, and lift up on the handle (3).
2. Adjust the fence (5) so it is parallel to the miter
gauge groove and lock the handle (3) into position.
3. Make sure the fence (5) is parallel to the groove
and tighten the two hex wrench bolts (4) securely.
4. Unlock the fence handle (3) and slide the fence
left and right, then reposition it against the miter
gauge groove again lock into position to double
check its' alignment.

USING THE TABLE EXTENSION (FIG. U)
NOTE: Use the scale on front rail for rip cuts up to 13".
For rip cuts greater than 13", set and lock the fence on
the 13" mark, unlock the extension table, and slide the
table with the fence to the desired dimension using the
scale on rear rail.
1. Release cam locking lever.
2. Slide the table extension to the desired
measurement and then tighten the cam locking lever.
Fig. U
CUTTING OPERATIONS
There are two basic types of cuts: ripping and
crosscutting. Ripping is cutting along the length and the
grain of the workpiece. Crosscutting is cutting either
across the width or across the grain of the workpiece.
Neither ripping nor crosscutting may be done safely
freehand. Ripping requires the use of the rip fence, and
crosscutting requires the miter gauge.
Fig. V
Before using the saw each and every time, check
the following:
1. The blade is tightened to the arbor.
2. The bevel angle lock knob is tight.
3. If ripping, the fence is locked into position & is
parallel to the miter gauge groove.
4. The blade guard is in place and working properly.
5. Safety glasses are being worn.
NOTE: Always use a push stick. When width of the rip is
narrower than 2" the push stick cannot be used because
the guard will interfere...therefore, use the auxiliary fence
so the push stick can be used as shown on page 20.
The failure to adhere to these common safety rules,
and those printed in the front of this manual, can
greatly increase the likelihood of injury.
RIPPING (FIG. V, W)
To prevent serious injury:
• Never use a miter gauge when ripping.
• Do not allow familiarity or frequent use of your table
saw to cause careless mistakes. Remember that
even a careless fraction of a second is enough to
cause a severe injury.
• Keep both hands away from the blade and clear from
the path of the blade.
• The workpiece must have a straight edge against the
fence and must not be warped, twisted, or bowed
when ripping.
1. Remove the miter gauge and store it in the "storage"
compartment in the base of the saw.
2. Secure the rip fence to the table.
3. Raise the blade so it is about 1/8" higher than the top
of the workpiece.
4. Place the workpiece flat on the table and against the
fence. Keep the workpiece away from the blade.
5. Turn the saw ON and wait for the blade to come to
full speed.
6. Slowly feed the workpiece into the blade by pushing
forward only on the workpiece section (1) that will
pass between the blade and the fence. (Fig. V)
AVOID KICKBACK by pushing forward on the section
of the workpiece that passes between the blade and the
fence. Never perform any freehand operations.
IS
7. Keep your thumbs off the table top. When both of your
thumbs touch the front edge of the table (2), finish the
cut with a push stick. To make an additional push stick,
use the pattern on page 23.
8. The push stick (3) should always be used. (Fig. W)
9. Continue pushing the workpiece with the push stick (3)
until it passes through the blade guard and clears the
rear of the table.
10. Never pull the piece back when the blade is turning.
Turn the switch OFF. When the blade completely
stops, you can then remove the workpiece.

BEVEL RIPPING
This cut is the same as ripping except the blade bevel
angle is set to an angle other than "0°''.
RIPPING SMALL PIECES
To avoid injury from the blade contact, never make cuts
narrower than 1/2" wide.
two holes through it and attach it to the miter gauge with
screws. Make sure the facing does not interfere with the
proper operation of the sawblade guard. When cutting
long workpieces, you can make a simple outfeed support
by clamping a piece of plywood to a sawhorse.
Fig. X-1
1. It is unsafe to rip small pieces. Instead, rip a larger
piece to obtain the size of the desired piece.
2. When a small width is to be ripped and your hand
cannot safely pass between the blade and the rip
fence, use one or more push sticks to move the
workpiece. Always use a push stick during ripping
operations.
CROSSCUTTING (FIG. X)
To prevent serious injury:
• Do not allow familiarity or frequent use of your table
saw to cause careless mistakes. Remember that
even a careless fraction of a second is enough to
cause a severe injury.
• Keep both hands away from the blade and the path
of the blade.
BEVEL CROSSCUTTING (FIG. Y)
This cutting operation is the same as crosscutting
except the blade is at bevel angle other than 0 °.
1. Adjust the blade (1) to the desired angle, and
tighten the blade bevel lock knob.
2. Always work to the left side of the blade. The miter
gsuge (3) must be in the right side groove unless
the miter angle is very sharp, as it will interfere
with the blade guard.
Fig. Y
1. Remove the rip fence and place it in the "storage"
compartment of the table saw base.
2. Place the miter gauge either groove in the table top.
3. Adjust the blade height so it is 1!8" higher than the
top of the workpiece.
4. Hold the workpiece firmly against the miter gauge
with the blade path in line with the desired cut
location.
5. Start the saw and wait for the blade (t) to come up to full
speed.
6. Keep the workpiece (2) against the face of the miter
gauge (3) and flat against the table. Then slowly push the
workpiece through the blade.
7. Do not try to pull the workpiece back with the blade
turning. Turn the switch OFF, wait for the blade to come
to a complete stop, then carefully slide the workpiece.
Fig. X
COMPOUND MITER CROSSCUTTING (FIG. Z)
This sawing operation is combining a miter angle with
a bevel angle.
1. Set the miter gauge (3) to the desired angle.
Use only the left side groove for this specific
operation(2).
2. Set the blade (t) bevel to the desired angle.
3. Carefully push the miter gauge to begin the cutting
operation.
Fig. Z
USING WOOD FACING ON THE MITER GAUGE
