POWER TOOL SAFETY
GENERAL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
BEFORE USING THIS POWER TOOL
7. MAKE WORKSHOP CHILD
PROOF with padlocks, master
switches or by removing starter
keys.
Safety is a combination of common
sense, staying alert and knowing how
to use your power tool.
8. DO NOT FORCE THE TOOL. It will
do the job better and safer at the
rate for which it was designed.
! WARNING
To avoid mistakes that could cause
serious injury, do not plug the tool in
until you have read and understood
the following.
1.
9. USE THE RIGHT TOOL. Do not
force the tool or an attachment
to do a job for which it was not
designed.
READ and become familiar
with the entire Operator’s
Manual. LEARN the tool’s
application, limitations and possible
hazards.
10. USE PROPER EXTENSION
CORDS. Make sure your extension
cord is in good condition. When
using an extension cord, be sure to
use the one heavy enough to carry
the current that the product will
draw. An undersized cord will result
in a drop in line voltage and in
loss of power which will cause the
tool overheat. The table on page
11 shows the proper wire gauge
size usage to each extension cord
length and ampere rating. If in
doubt, use the next heavier gauge.
The smaller the gauge number, the
heavier the cord.
2. KEEP GUARDS IN PLACE and in
working order.
3. REMOVE ADJUSTING KEYS
AND WRENCHES. Form the habit
of checking to see that keys and
adjusting wrenches are removed
from the tool before turning ON.
4. KEEP WORK AREA CLEAN.
Cluttered areas and benches invite
accidents.
11. WEAR PROPER APPAREL. Do
not wear loose clothing, gloves,
neckties, rings, bracelets or other
jewelry which may get caught in
moving parts. Nonslip footwear is
recommended. Wear protective
hair covering to contain long hair.
5. DO NOT USE IN DANGEROUS
ENVIRONMENTS. Do not use
power tools in damp locations, or
expose them to rain or snow. Keep

damaged or worn cords immediately.
GUIDELINES FOR EXTENSION
CORDS
USE THE PROPER EXTENSION
CORD. Make sure your extension cord
is in good condition. Use an extension
cord 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, overheating
and burning out of the motor. The
table on the right shows the correct
size to use depending on cord length
and nameplate ampere rating. If in
doubt, use the next heavier gauge. The
smaller the gauge number, the heavier
the cord.
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
IN THE EVENT OF A MALFUNCTION
OR BREAKDOWN, grounding provides
a path of least resistance for electric
currents and reduces the risk of electric
shock. This tool is equipped with an
electrical cord that has an equipmentgrounding 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.
DO NOT MODIFY THE PLUG
PROVIDED. If it will not fit the
receptacle, have the proper receptacle
installed by a qualified electrician.
Make sure your extension cord is
properly wired and in good condition.
Always replace a damaged extension
cord or have it repaired by a qualified
technician before using it. Protect your
extension cords from sharp objects,
excessive heat and damp or wet areas.
Use a separate electrical circuit for
your tool. This circuit must not be less
than #12 wire with a 20 Amp time-lag
fuse or a #14 wire with a 15 Amp timelag fuse.
IMPROPER CONNECTION of the
equipment grounding conductor can
result in risk of electric shock. The
conductor with the green insulation
(with or without yellow stripes) is the
equipment grounding conductor. If

● Review the MAINTENANCE AND
TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE for
your miter saw.
● To avoid injury or possible death
from electrical shock, make sure
your fingers do not touch the
plug’s metal prongs when
plugging in or unplugging your
miter saw. (SEE ELECTRICAL
REQUIREMENTS AND SAFETY
SECTIONS)
BEFORE EACH USE
Inspect your saw.
● Disconnect the miter saw.
To avoid injury from accidental
starting, unplug the saw before any
adjustments, including setup and
blade changes.
● Compare the direction of rotation
arrow on the guard to the direction
arrow on the blade. The blade teeth
should always point downward at
the front of the saw.
RECOMMENDED ACCESSORIES
● Consult the ACCESSORIES
and ATTACHMENTS section
of this Operator’s Manual for
recommended accessories. Follow
the instructions that come with the
accessory. The use of improper
28
●
●
●
●
accessories may cause risk of
injury.
Choose the correct 12 in. blade for
the material and the type of cutting
you plan to do.
Make sure the blade is sharp,
undamaged and properly aligned.
With the saw unplugged, push
the cutting arm all the way down.
Manually spin the blade and check
for clearance. Tilt the miter head to
a 45° bevel and repeat the test.
Make sure the blade and arbor
collars are clean.
Make sure all clamps and locks are
tight and there is no excessive play
in any parts.
! WARNING
This machine is NOT designed for
cutting masonry, masonry products
or ferrous metals (steel, iron and
iron-based metals.) Use this miter
saw to cut only wood and wood
by-products. Other materials may
shatter, bind the blade or create
other dangers. Remove all nails that
may be in the workpiece to prevent
sparking that could cause a fire.
DRESS FOR SAFETY
Any power tool can throw
debris 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
hearing protection 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 understand the
Operator’s Manual and labels
affixed to the tool. Learn its
application and limitations as well as
the potential hazards specific to this
tool. To avoid injury from accidental
contact with moving parts, do not
lay out, assemble or set up work on
the miter saw.
● Avoid accidental starting. Make sure
the switch is in the OFF position
before plugging the miter saw into a
power outlet.
PLAN YOUR WORK
Use the right tool. Do not force a tool
or attachment to do a job it was not
designed to do. Use a different tool for
any workpiece that cannot be held in a
solidly braced, fixed position.
29
INSPECT YOUR WORKPIECE
● Make sure there are no nails or
foreign objects in the part of the
workpiece being cut.
● Plan your work to avoid small pieces
that may bind or are too small to
clamp and hold securely.
● Plan the way you will grasp the
workpiece from start to finish. Avoid
awkward operations and hand
positions. A sudden slip could cause
your fingers or hand to move into
the blade.
● When cutting odd shaped workpieces,
plan your work so it will not bind in the
blade and cause 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 OVERREACH
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
reach your arm or hand across the
cutting path 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 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’s table.
● Secure work. Use clamps or a vise
to help hold the work when it is
practical.
USE EXTRA CAUTION WITH LARGE
OR ODD SHAPED WORKPIECES
● Use extra supports (tables,
sawhorses, blocks, etc.) for
workpieces large enough to tip.
● Never use another person as a
substitute for a table extension or as
an additional support for a workpiece
that is longer or wider than the basic
miter saw table, or to help feed,
support or pull the workpiece.
● Do not use this saw to cut small
pieces. If the workpiece being cut
would cause your hand or fingers
to be within 8-3/25 in. of the saw
blade, the workpiece is too small.
Keep hands and fingers out of the
“no-hands zone” area marked on
the saw’s table.
!
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.
WHEN SAW IS RUNNING
! WARNING
Do not allow familiarity from
frequent use of your miter saw
to result in a careless mistake. A
careless fraction of a second is
enough to cause a severe injury.
Before cutting, if the saw makes an
unfamiliar noise or vibrates, stop
immediately. Turn the saw OFF.
Unplug the saw. Do not restart until
you find and correct the problem.
30
BODY AND HAND POSITION (FIG. Y)
Fig. Y
Never place hands near
the cutting area. Proper
positioning of your body and
hands when operating the miter
saw will make cutting easier and
safer. Keep children away. Keep all
visitors at a safe distance from the
miter saw. Make sure bystanders are
clear of the saw and workpiece. Do
not force the saw. It will do the job
better and safer at its designed rate.
No Hand
Zone
8-3/25 in.
Starting a cut:
● Place hands at least 8-3/25 in. away
from the path of the blade - out of

CUTTING BOWED MATERIAL
(FIG. GG)
A bowed workpiece must be positioned
against the fence and secured with a
clamping devise before cutting. Do not
position workpiece incorrectly or try to
cut the workpiece without the support
of the fence. This will cause the blade
to bind, and could result in personal
injury.
! WARNING
The sliding fence must be extended
to the left when making bevel cuts.
The sliding fence has been notched
three bevel angles where the user
must adjust the fence to match the
degree of the bevel cut. Failure to
extend the sliding fence will not
allow enough space for the blade to
pass through which could result in
serious injury. At extreme miter or
bevel angles the saw blade may also
come in contact with the fence.
Fig. GG
COMPOUND CUT (FIG. FF)
A compound cut is the combination of
a miter and a bevel cut simultaneously.
1. Extend the sliding fence as
described in “SLIDING FENCE”.
2. Loosen the bevel lock handle (1)
and position the cutting head at the
desired bevel position. Lock the
bevel lock handle.
3. Release miter lock lever (2). Press
down the positive stop locking lever
(3) and position the table at the
desired angle. Release the positive
stop locking lever and lock the miter
lock lever.
WORKPIECE SUPPORT AND
REPETITIVE CUTTING USING THE
STOP PLATE (FIG. HH)
Long pieces need extension table
support.
1. Loosen the knob (1), and then
slide the extension wing to desired
position and tighten the knob.
2. The arm bracket is designed for use
during repetitive cutting. Only use
one stop plate at a time. Loosen
the locking knobs (2), raise the arm
bracket (3), and retighten the locking
knobs.

AUXILIARY WOOD FENCE (FIG. II)
When making multiple or repetitive
cuts that result in cut-off pieces of one
inch or less, it is possible for the saw
blade to catch the cut-off piece and
throw it out of the saw or into the blade
guard and housing, possibly causing
damage or injury. To minimize this
possibility, an auxiliary wood fence can
be mounted to your saw.
CUTTING BASE MOULDING (FIG. JJ)
Base mouldings and trims can be cut
on a compound miter saw. The method
depends on the type of moulding, its
characteristics and applications.
1. Use vise clamps, hold-down or
C-clamps whenever possible. Place
tape on the area being clamped to
avoid marking the finish surface of
the moulding.
2. Tape the area being cut to avoid
splintering, and mark the cut line on
the tape.
3. Perform practice cuts on scrap
pieces before cutting the final
moulding.
NOTE: Splintering may be caused due
to the thinness of the moulding or use
of the wrong type of blade.
Holes are provided in the saw fence
to attach an auxiliary wood fence. This
fence should be constructed of straight
auxiliary wood.
Attach the wood fence securely, and
make a full-depth cut to make a blade
slot.
Fig. JJ
Check for interference between the
wood fence and the lower blade guard.
Adjust if necessary.

CUTTING CROWN MOULDING
(FIG. KK, LL)
Crown moulding must be compound
mitered with extreme accuracy. The
two surfaces on the crown moulding
must fit the wall or ceiling, and each
other.
The two cut surfaces of the miterd
moulding must add to a 90° angle.
Most crown moulding has a top angle
of 52° that fits flat on the ceiling, and
a bottom rear angle of 38° that fits flat
against the wall.
1. If the crown moulding is thin and
cannot stand vertically on edge, lay
the moulding flat with its widest back
surface flat on the saw table.
(Fig. KK)
2. To avoid splintering and marking,
tape the cutting line and any surface
that is being clamped.
3. The angle settings for the two
pieces of moulding that will be
adjoining in any one corner, will be
interdependent with each other. Any
change in the setting for one side
must be equally compensated for on
the other side.
4. All settings should be tested on
scrap material before cutting the
actual moulding.

DANGER
Never put lubricants on the blade
while it is spinning.
NOTE: To reinstall the same brushes,
first make sure the brushes go back in
the way they came out. This will avoid
a break-in period.
! WARNING
● To avoid fire or toxic reaction,
never use gasoline, naphtha
acetone, lacquer thinner or similar
highly volatile solvents to clean
the miter saw.
● To avoid injury from unexpected
starting or electrical shock,
unplug the power cord before
working on the saw.
● For your safety, this saw is double
insulated. To avoid electrical
shock, fire or injury, use only
parts identical to those identified
in the parts list. Reassemble
exactly as the original assembly

LOWER BLADE GUARD
Do not use the saw without the
lower blade guard. The lower blade
guard is attached to the saw for your
protection. Should the lower guard
become damaged, do not use the
saw until the damaged guard has
been replaced. Before each use, with
the saw unplugged, check to make
sure the lower guard moves smoothly
when the cutting head is raised and
lowered. If needed, clean any sawdust
buildup with a damp cloth. Check to
see if any of the link or pivot points
need lubrication. If so, see lubrication
instructions on page 41.
REPLACING CARBON BRUSHES
(FIG. NN)
The carbon brushe (3) that are
provided will last approximately 50
hours of running time, or 10,000 ON/
OFF cycles. Replace carbon brushe
(3) when it less than 1/4 in. of carbon
remaining, or if the spring or wire is
damaged or burned. To inspect or
replace brushes, first unplug the saw,
and then remove the black plastic
cap (1) on the side of the motor (2).
Remove the cap carefully, because it is
spring-loaded. Then pull out the brush
and replace.
CAUTION: Do not use solvents on the
guard. They could make the plastic
“cloudy” and brittle.
To reassemble, reverse the procedure.

All of 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.
Lubricate the following as necessary:
Chop pivot: Apply light machine oil to
points indicated in illustration.
Central pivot of lower blade guard:
Use light household oil (sewing
machine oil) on metal-to-metal or
metal-to-plastic guard contact areas as
required for smooth, quiet operation.
Avoid excessive oil, because sawdust
will cling to it.
Link: (actuates the lower guard
movement) may be oiled at the rear
pivot, greased at ball bearing contact,
and oiled where the link actuates the
acetyl roller of the lower guard, if the
downward chop motion is hard to start.
