4. As you assemble your radial arm saw,
some of the holes in the parts will line up and
others will not. This happens because some
parts are used in other equipment

purposes. Follow the instructions
carefully.
The figures will show which holes should line
up in each step.

SAW.
The blade of your radial arm saw must be
aligned properly for two reasons: to make
cuts accurate, and to prevent binding of the
blade and workpiece
which can cause jams or
thrown workpieces.
These adjustments
must be done in order,
before using your saw for the first time. If
they are not done in order the saw will not
cut accurately. If you miss an adjustment,
you
must go back to the adjustment
you missed
and repeat all steps from that point on.
These adjustments
are like finetuning
a
piece of equipment.
Often a series of steps
must be repeated
more than once in order to
get the adjustment
just right.
2. Raise and lower the radial arm by turning
the handwheel a few turns in each direction.
It should take about the same amount of effort to lower the arm as to raise it.

Plugging the saw in

Elevation
The goal of this adjustment
is to make upward and downward movement
of the radial
arm smooth and firm. If the column that supports the arm is too tight it will be difficult to
move the arm up and down and to get accurate depth of cut. If the column is loose the
blade may "walk" on the workpiece
and stall
the motor, or cause a heel in bevel and compound cuts.

Ripping
When
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.
to Use
In-Rip
or Out-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
workpicces
less than 14 inches wide.
Saw Positions 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.
Workpiece
Positioning
for Ripping
Always set up the saw blade so the widest
part of the workpiece
is between the blade
and the fence. For example, if you want to
take 1 inch off an 11 inch wide workpiece,
set
the saw blade 10 inches from the fence. Do
not rip 1 inch off an 11 inch workpiece
by setting the saw blade 1 inch from the fence.

For example, if the workpiece
is 7 inches

_l_ WARNING:
If the blade
on how
is set between
1/2 inch and 2 inches from the fence, hands
will be brought too close to the blade.
Fingers/hand
can be cut off. Use an auxiliary
fence/push block.
For example, if the workpiece
is 3 inches
wide and you want to cut 1 inch off the
workpiece,
place the saw blade 2 inches from
the fence and use a push block and auxiliary
fence. See Cutting Accessories

into the end of the blade with pawls, the
outfeed end. (Fig. 128) There are two
things that can happen if you feed the
workpiece into the outfeed end of the saw
blade:

1. The workpiece
can be grabbed
by the
blade and pull your hands into the blade
before you can let go or pull back.
Fingers, hands or arms can be cut off.

Rip Cutting Checklist
Use the following rip cutting checklist at the
beginning of each new cutting period to
reduce the risk of an accident.
The blade guard, anti-kickback pawls and
workpiece
spreader are designed to reduce or
eliminate the risk of injury from blade contact, workpiece
kickback and wrong way feed.
The Blade Guard:
• serves as a partial barrier to help
keep hands from contacting the blade
at the infeed end of the saw blade.
• helps keep the workpiece from lifting
or fluttering during ripping.
• helps catch or deflect workpiece
or pieces of the blade.
The Anti-Kickback
chips
Pawls :
• help reduce kickback by grabbing into
and holding the workpiece.
• act as a barrier to provide some
protection from blade contact.
The Spreader:
• helps keep lhe kerf of the workpiece
open, which helps prevent the blade
from being pinched and causing
workpiece
kickback.
• when correctly set, helps reduce or
eliminate the chance of wrong way
feed because it blocks the workpiece
from contacting
the saw blade.

for Ripping
Always set up the saw blade so the widest
part of the workpiece
is between the blade
and the fence. For example, if you want to
take 1 inch off an 11 inch wide work_iece, set
the saw blade 10 inches from the fence. Do
not rip 1 inch off an 11 inch workpiece by setting the saw blade 1 inch from the fence.

dI&WARNINL_:
If the blade is set between 2 inches and 6 inches from the
fence, hands will be brought too close
to the blade. Fingers and hand can be
cut off. Use a push stick.
Fig. 131 - Anti-kickback Paw/Position
4. Tighten
For example, if the workpiece is 7 inches
wide and you want to cut 1 inch off the
workpiece,
place the saw blade 6 inches from
the fence and use a push stick. Use a push
stick when the distance between the saw
blade and fence is between 2 inches and 6 in-
wing screw.
5. Go to the infeed
end of the saw blade.
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.

Lower Blade Guard Safety Information
IMPORTANT
_WARNING
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.
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.
In repetitive 90 ° crosscutting, the guard may
reduce the chance of accidentally
touching
the blade from the side. This protection
is
possible ONLY when:
•
the blade is in its rearmost
position
and
•
the guard is resting on the table so the
leading and trailing teeth of the blade are
not exposed from the sides.
•
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.
•
In the bevel position the blade teeth are
fully exposed. Fingers or hand can be
cut off.
•
Cut off pieces can jam between the guard
and blade. Turn saw off and wait for
blade to stop before freeing a jammed
guard or blade.
•
Workpiece or cut-off pieces can be violently thrown by the blade. Wear safety
goggles.

Helpful Hints
In order to get accurate cutting results
your radial arm saw, do the following:
1. Follow all steps in the Alignment
the Blade section.
3. Place the same edge of the workpiece
against the fence for all cuts. Make the
first cut at one end of the workpiece,
then flip the workpiece over and make
the second cut from the other end. Con-
from
of
tinue this way until all four cuts are
made. (Figure 145)
2. Place the long edge of your framing
square against the edge of the
workpiece
that will be held against the
fence during cutting. Make sure that
this edge of the workpieee
is straight.
3. Make sure that your workpiece
lays
flat on the front table of your saw.
4. Clean all sawdust
from the table.

5. Hold the workpiece
firmly against the
fence and table during all cuts. You
should use extra force during miter and
bevel cuts since the workpiece
tends to
move when these cuts are made.

6. Use the right sawblade for each job,
and make sure that all blades and cutting tools are sharp.

When making a four-sided
frame:
4. Make a pencil line on the table for
gauging the length of each cut.
1. Make sure that the top and bottom
pieces are exactly the same length.
2. Make sure that both side pieces are
exactly the same length.
71
To extend the life of the front table of your
saw, tack a piece of 1/4 inch plywood over it.
Make sure that the tacks are not in the path
of the saw blade.
3. Lock the miter,
bevel,
or swivel lock.
These steps will reduce stress on saw parts,
and improve the accuracy of your cuts.
Use of a front table cover does the following:
The following table is provided to convert the
decimal numbers on the digital display to
fractions. All decimals are rounded to the
nearest .01 inch. (Figure 146)

There are three pre-set miter angles at 45°,

-45 °, 0°, 45 °, and 90 °, and three pre-set
swivel angles at the crosscut, in-rip and outrip positions. When you are moving the arm,

Maintaining
Your Saw
General
_WARNING:
To avoid motor damage the motor should be
blown out or vacuumed frequently to prevent
sawdust build-up which will interfere with
normal motor ventilation.
For your own safety,
turn power switch off and remove plug
from power source outlet before maintaining or lubricating your saw.
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
necessary to lubricate
and realign. In fact
your radial saw needs more of a cleaning
than a lubrication.
Do not lubricate

The carriage ball bearings and motor bearings
are sealed ball bearings which require no
added lubrication.
Cleaning
Do lubricate the following, periodically,
using
SAE No 10W-30 automotive
engine oil:
Periodically
remove any heavy build-up of
sawdust that may accumulate
on the saw.
The absorbing tendency of sawdust will draw
lubricants away from the areas where they
are needed.
Clean the carriage bearings" and
track surfaces. If packed sawdust and grease
accumulate
repeatedly
on carriage bearings
and track inspect the wipers for wear and
replace if necessary. (See Adjustments

• Lubricate the cam surfaces of the rip
lock assembly.
• A light film of oil should be wiped on
the face of the column tube to lubricate
the fit between the column tube and
column support. Turn the elevation
