! CAUTION

This machine is not designed for
cutting masonry, masonry products,
ferrous metals (steel, iron, and ironbased metals.) Use this miter saw to
cut only wood, wood-like products,
or non-ferrous metals. Other material
may shatter, bind the blade, or create
other dangers. Remove all nails that
may be in the workpiece to prevent

Remove dust bag when cutting nonferrous metals.
DRESS FOR SAFETY
Any power tool can throw
foreign objects into the eyes.
This can result in permanent
eye damage. Everyday
eyeglasses have only impact resistant
lenses and are not safety glasses.
Glasses or goggles not in compliance
with ANSI Z87.1 could seriously injure
you when they break.
● Do not wear loose clothing, gloves,
neckties or jewelry (rings, watches).
They can get caught and draw you
into moving parts.
● Wear non-slip footwear.
● Tie back long hair.
● Roll long sleeves above the elbow.
● Noise levels vary widely. To avoid
possible hearing damage, wear ear
plugs when using any miter saw.
● For dusty operations, wear a dust
mask along with safety goggles.
KEEP YOUR WORK AREA CLEAN
Cluttered areas and benches invite
accidents.
! WARNING

To avoid burns or other fire damage,
never use the miter saw near
flammable liquids, vapors, or gases.
● Plan ahead to protect your eyes,
hands, face and ears.
● Know your miter saw. Read and

would cause your hand or fingers to
be within 6 inches of the saw blade
the workpiece is too small. Keep
hands and fingers out of the “no
hands zone” area marked on the
saw table.
● When cutting odd shaped
workpieces, plan your work so it
will not bind in the blade and cause
possible injury. Molding, for example,
must lie flat or be held by a fixture or
jig that will not let it move when cut.
● Properly support round material such
as dowel rods, or tubing, which have
a tendency to roll when cut, causing
the blade to “bite”.
DO NOT OVER-REACH
Keep good footing and balance. Keep
your face and body to one side, out of
the line of a possible kickback. NEVER
stand in the line of the blade.
Never cut freehand:
● Brace your workpiece firmly against
the fence and table stop so it will not
rock or twist during the cut.
● Make sure there is no debris
between the workpiece and the table
or fence.
● Make sure there are no gaps
between the workpiece, fence and
table that will let the workpiece shift
after it is cut.
● Keep the cut off piece free to move
sideways after it is cut off. Otherwise,
it could get wedged against the
blade and thrown violently.
● Only the workpiece should be on the
saw table.
● Secure work. Use clamps or a vise
to help hold the work when it’s
practical.
! WARNING

To avoid injury, follow all applicable
safety instructions, when cutting
non-ferrous metals:
● Use only saw blades specifically
recommended for non-ferrous
metal cutting.
● Do not cut metal workpieces that must
be hand held. Clamp workpieces
securely.
● Cut non-ferrous metals only if you
are under the supervision of an
experienced person and the dust
bag has been removed from
the saw.

SETTING UP THE TABLES FOR
ANGLE CUTS USING THE ANGLE
FINDER (FIG. FF, GG)
The MiterMate™ accurate angle cutting
is suited to do with the fact that most
walls and ceiling are not 90 degrees to
each other, and so you can make the
accurate angles for fewer miscut and
quicker task completion.
Using the MiterMate™ angle finder
to copy a corner angle:
1. Unlock the MiterMate™ angle finder
by loosening the knob (1), open up
the paddles (2) to copy the corner
angle.

Cutting crown molding:
Your miter saw is suited for making the
difficult task of cutting crown molding
easily. To fit properly, crown molding
must be cut with extreme accuracy.
The two surfaces on a piece of crown
molding that fit flat against the ceiling
and wall are at angles that, when
added together equal exactly 90°. Most
crown molding has a top rear angle (the
section that fits flat against the ceiling)
and a bottom rear angle (the section
that fits flat against the wall). The
two common spring angles for crown
molding are: 52°/38° and 45°/45°.
1. Determine the spring angle for the
crown molding, for example, 52/38
degrees as shown in Fig. II.
2. Tighten the knob to the lock position
and remove the MiterMate™ angle
finder from the corner.
Adjusting the sliding fences for
miter angle setting (Fig. HH):
1. Place the angle copied MiterMate™
angle finder on the saw. Make sure
the fitting block (3 - Fig. FF) under
the angle finder is inserted into the
slot (4) through table.
2. Individually unlock the left and right
sliding fence units by unlocking the
positive stop lock lever (5) behind
the fence unit and lift up the lock
lever (6) pivotally connected in the
base.
3. Individually slide the left and right
sliding fence units toward the
paddles until each sliding fence
plate (7) flat against the paddle (8).
4. Individually lock the left and right
sliding fence units by flipping down
the lock lever (6).
5. Remove the MiterMate™ angle
finder from the saw.
6. Respectively place a base/crown
molding piece against the left and
right sliding fence units, and perform
the cross cutting to accomplish base/
crown molding cutting.

CONVENTIONAL WAY OF CUTTING
CROWN/BASE MOLDING
The following instructions are not the
optimum way to cut molding using the
MiterMate™ cutting feature. Use these
instructions only for cutting molding too
large for the MiterMate™ feature.
Cutting crown molding
(Fig. NN, OO):
Your compound miter saw is suited
for the difficult task of cutting crown
molding. To fit properly, crown molding
must be cut with extreme accuracy.
The two surfaces on a piece of crown
molding that fit flat against the ceiling
and wall are at angles that, when
added together equal exactly 90°.
Cutting base molding (Fig. MM):
Base moldings and many other
moldings can be cut on a compound
miter saw. The setup of the saw
depends on molding characteristics
and application, as shown. Perform
practice cuts on scrap material to
achieve best results:
1. Always make sure moldings rest
firmly against fence and table. Use
hold-down or C-clamps, whenever
possible, and place tape on the area
being clamped to avoid marks.
2. Reduce splintering by taping the cut
area prior to making cut. Mark cut
line directly on the tape.
3. Splintering typically happens due
to wrong blade application and
thinness of the material.

In order to accurately cut crown
molding for a 90° inside or outside
corner, lay the molding with its broad
back surface flat on the saw table.
When setting the bevel and miter
angles for compound miters, remember
that the settings are interdependent;
changing one changes the other, as
well.

(FIG. PP)
Replace both carbon brushes when
either has less than 1/4 in. length of
carbon remaining, or if the spring or
wire is damaged or burned. To inspect
or replace brushes, first unplug the
saw. Then remove the black plastic
cap (1) on the side of the motor (2).
Remove the cap cautiously, because
it is springloaded. Then pull out the
brush and replace. Replace for the
other side. To reassemble reverse the
procedure. The ears on the metal end
of the assembly go in the same hole
the carbon part fits into. Tighten the
cap snugly, but do not overtighten.
NOTE: To reinstall the same brushes,
first make sure the brushes go back in
the way they came out. This will avoid
EMPTYING SAWDUST BAG
Periodically, sawdust will accumulate
under the work table and base. This
could cause difficulty in the movement
of the worktable when setting up
a miter cut. Frequently blow out or
vacuum up the sawdust.
38
! WARNING
Wear proper eye protection to keep
debris from entering eyes when
removing sawdust from unit.
LUBRICATION (FIG. QQ)
All the motor bearings in this tool are
lubricated with a sufficient amount of
high grade lubricant for the life of the
unit under normal operating conditions;
therefore, no further lubrication is
required.
