14. USE THE PROPER EXTENSION CORD. Make sure your
extension cord is in good condition. When using an extension
cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to carry the current
your product will draw. An undersized cord will cause a drop in
line voltage, resulting in loss of power and overheating. See the
Extension Cord Chart for the correct size depending on the cord
length and nameplate ampere rating. If in doubt, use the next
heavier gauge. The smaller the gauge number, the heavier the
cord.
15. SECURE THE WORKPIECE. Use clamps or a vise to hold the
workpiece when practical. Loss of control of a workpiece can
cause injury.
16. FEED THE WORKPIECE AGAINST THE DIRECTION OF THE
ROTATION OF THE BLADE, CUTTER, OR ABRASIVE SURFACE.
Feeding it from the other direction will cause the workpiece to be
thrown out at high speed.
17. DON’T FORCE THE WORKPIECE ON THE MACHINE. Damage
to the machine and/or injury may result.
18. DON’T OVERREACH. Loss of balance can make you fall into a
working machine, causing injury.
19. NEVER STAND ON THE MACHINE. Injury could occur if the tool
tips, or if you accidentally contact the cutting tool.
20. NEVER LEAVE THE MACHINE RUNNING UNATTENDED. TURN
THE POWER OFF. Don’t leave the machine until it comes to a
complete stop. A child or visitor could be injured.
21. TURN THE MACHINE “OFF”, AND DISCONNECT THE MACHINE
FROM THE POWER SOURCE before installing or removing
accessories, changing cutters, adjusting or changing set-ups.
When making repairs, be sure to lock the start switch in the “OFF”
position. An accidental start-up can cause injury.
22. MAKE YOUR WORKSHOP CHILDPROOF WITH PADLOCKS,
MASTER SWITCHES, OR BY REMOVING STARTER KEYS.
The accidental start-up of a machine by a child or visitor could
cause injury.
23. STAY ALERT, WATCH WHAT YOU ARE DOING, AND USE
COMMON SENSE. DO NOT USE THE MACHINE WHEN
YOU ARE TIRED OR UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF DRUGS,
ALCOHOL, OR MEDICATION. A moment of inattention while
operating power tools may result in injury.
24.
USE OF THIS TOOL CAN GENERATE
AND DISBURSE DUST OR OTHER AIRBORNE PARTICLES,
INCLUDING WOOD DUST, CRYSTALLINE SILICA DUST AND
ASBESTOS DUST. Direct particles away from face and body.
Always operate tool in well ventilated area and provide for proper
dust removal. Use dust collection system wherever possible.
Exposure to the dust may cause serious and permanent
respiratory or other injury, including silicosis (a serious lung
disease), cancer, and death. Avoid breathing the dust, and avoid
prolonged contact with dust. Allowing dust to get into your mouth
or eyes, or lay on your skin may promote absorption of harmful
material. Always use properly fitting NIOSH/OSHA approved
respiratory protection appropriate for the dust exposure, and
wash exposed areas with soap and water.
FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY, READ THE INSTRUCTION MANUAL
BEFORE OPERATING THE MACHINE. Learning the machine’s
application, limitations, and specific hazards will greatly
minimize the possibility of accidents and injury.
WEAR EYE AND HEARING PROTECTION. ALWAYS USE
SAFETY GLASSES. Everyday eyeglasses are NOT safety
glasses. USE CERTIFIED SAFETY EQUIPMENT. Eye protection
equipment should comply with ANSI Z87.1 standards. Hearing
equipment should comply with ANSI S3.19 standards.
WEAR PROPER APPAREL. Do not wear loose clothing, gloves,
neckties, rings, bracelets, or other jewelry which may get caught
in moving parts. Nonslip protective footwear is recommended.
Wear protective hair covering to contain long hair.
DO NOT USE THE MACHINE IN A DANGEROUS
ENVIRONMENT. The use of power tools in damp or wet locations
or in rain can cause shock or electrocution. Keep your work area
well-lit to prevent tripping or placing arms, hands, and fingers in
danger.
MAINTAIN ALL TOOLS AND MACHINES IN PEAK CONDITION.
Keep tools sharp and clean for best and safest performance.
Follow instructions for lubricating and changing accessories. Poorly
maintained tools and machines can further damage the tool or
machine and/or cause injury.
CHECK FOR DAMAGED PARTS. Before using the machine,
check for any damaged parts. Check for alignment of moving
parts, binding of moving parts, breakage of parts, and any other
conditions that may affect its operation. A guard or any other part
that is damaged should be properly repaired or replaced with
Delta or factory authorized replacement parts. Damaged parts
can cause further damage to the machine and/or injury.
KEEP THE WORK AREA CLEAN. Cluttered areas and benches
invite accidents.
KEEP CHILDREN AND VISITORS AWAY. Your shop is a potentially
dangerous environment. Children and visitors can be injured.
REDUCE THE RISK OF UNINTENTIONAL STARTING. Make sure
that the switch is in the “OFF” position before plugging in the
power cord. In the event of a power failure, move the switch to
the “OFF” position. An accidental start-up can cause injury. Do
not touch the plug’s metal prongs when unplugging or plugging in
the cord.
USE THE GUARDS. Check to see that all guards are in place,
secured, and working correctly to prevent injury.
REMOVE ADJUSTING KEYS AND WRENCHES BEFORE
STARTING THE MACHINE. Tools, scrap pieces, and other debris
can be thrown at high speed, causing injury.
USE THE RIGHT MACHINE. Don’t force a machine or an

STRUCTURE OF A MORTISE AND TENON JOINT
Parts of a simple or “blind” joint are (Fig. 24):
A. Structural Shoulder
B. Cheek
C. Cosmetic Shoulder
D. Mortise
E. Mortise Walls
Lay out the mortise and tenon on the workpieces (Fig. 25),
but keep these items in mind when laying out the joints:
• To avoid premature joint failure, avoid locating a tenon in
a disfigured part of the grain (a knot), for unpredictable
movement of the joint may occur. Use straight, flat,
common-grained stock.
• The tenon will shrink in width away from the mortise
walls, possibly revealing the mortised hole. When
possible, produce tenons with shoulders on all
four sides - two structural and two cosmetic - to conceal
the mortised hole when wood movement occurs.
Fig. 24
Fig. 25
9
• The objective is to make the parts fit closely together. Maximize the gluing surface by making the tenon as long as possible
(approximately 1/2 the width of the stile or longer, if using narrow stock). Balance the joint by using the same amount of
wood in the tenon as in the combined thickness of the mortise walls (Fig. 26). If one piece of wood is larger than the other,
make the tenon as thick as possible (Fig. 27).
• Remember to figure the kerf of the saw blade when setting up for the cut.
• Cut all mortises first. Make the mortise 1/16" deeper than the length of the tenon to allow for glue.
Fig. 27
Fig. 26
You can use several different methods to cut a mortise and tenon. The following information illustrates one of the easiest and
safest methods and utilizes cheek cuts first, then shoulder cuts. Use a base stop (F) Fig. 28 that is the same thickness as the
base plate (G) of the tenoning jig (H) and spacer block (K) that is the combined thickness of the tenon and the saw blade,
to make the cutting more efficient. This method eliminates possible errors caused by thickness variations in the workpiece,
and avoids trapping cut-off pieces between the saw blade and vertical support plate (N).
NOTE: Perform your practice cuts on scrap material before cutting good wood.
Use a slow feed rate to help prevent the tenoning jig from lifting during a cut.
1.
Clamp a base stop (F) Fig. 28 (the same thickness as the base plate (G) of the tenoning jig (H)) on the front of the saw
table. This will allow tenoning jig to pass over the base stop (F).
2.
Make a spacer block of wood (K) Fig. 28, equal to the
thickness of the tenon plus the thickness of the saw
blade.
3.
4.
5.
Fig. 28
With the tenoning jig (H) Fig. 28 located at the front of
saw table and over the base stop (F), load the spacer
block (K) and the workpiece (L). Securely clamp both in
place with the clamp handle (M). Make certain that both
pieces of wood are against the vertical support plate
(N) and the backup board (P).
Gently push the tenoning jig (H) Fig. 28 toward the saw
blade until workpiece is near the saw blade. Adjust the
tenoning jig (H) and the saw blade to make the first
cheek cut. Return the tenoning jig (H) to the front of saw
table.
Connect the saw to the power source.

NOTE: When cutting the cosmetic cheek cuts, do not use
the spacer block (K) Fig. 28. You can turn the workpiece
180 degrees. The discrepancies in the workpiece are not as
critical when cutting the cosmetic cheeks as compared to
the structural cheeks.

CUTTING THE SHOULDERS OF THE TENON
Disconnect the Machine from the Power Source
To avoid personal injury or damage to the machine, always use a cross-cut blade to perform the
shoulder cuts of the tenon.
When performing the shoulder cuts of the tenon, do not cut into the cheeks of the tenon. It will greatly
reduce the strength of the joint.
NOTE: Perform your practice cuts on scrap material before cutting good wood.

Position the wooden stop block (S)
Fig. 34 in front of the saw blade to prevent the workpiece
from being trapped between the saw fence and the saw,
causing kickback. Make sure that the workpiece is clear
of the wooden stop block (S) before contacting the saw
blade.
4. Use a miter gauge (W) Fig. 34, equipped with a backup
board (X), to position the workpiece (L) so that you
can cut the structural shoulders. Make certain that the
workpiece (L) is against the wooden stop block (S) and
the backup board (X).
5. Connect the machine to the power source.
6. Turn the machine “ON” and perform the structural
shoulder cut by slowly pushing the miter gauge (W)
Fig. 34 toward the saw blade until the saw blade is
completely through the workpiece. Turn the machine
“OFF”. Wait for the blade to come to a complete
stop and remove the cut-off piece.
7. Return the miter gauge (W) Fig. 34 to the position
shown, and perform the other structural shoulder cut in
the same manner.

When performing the shoulder cuts of
the tenon, do not cut into the cheeks of the tenon. It will
greatly reduce the strength of the joint.
