GENERAL SAFETY RULES
 ALWAYS WEAR SAFETY GLASSES WITH SIDE
SHIELDS. Everyday eyeglasses have only impactresistant lenses, they are not safety glasses.
 SECURE WORK. Use a featherboard to hold work when
practical. It’s safer than using your hand and frees both
hands to operate tool.
 DON’T OVERREACH. Keep proper footing and
balance at all times.
 MAINTAIN TOOLS WITH CARE. Keep tools sharp
and clean for better and safer performance. Follow instructions for lubricating and changing accessories.
 DISCONNECT TOOLS. When not in use, before
servicing, or when changing attachments, blades, bits,
cutters, etc., all tools should be disconnected.
 AVOID ACCIDENTAL STARTING. Be sure switch is off
when plugging in any tool.
 USE RECOMMENDED ACCESSORIES. Consult the
operator’s manual for recommended accessories. The
use of improper accessories may risk injury.
 NEVER STAND ON TOOL. Serious injury could occur if
the tool is tipped or if the cutting tool is unintentionally
contacted.
 CHECK DAMAGED PARTS. Before further use of the
tool, a guard or other part that is damaged should be
carefully checked to determine that it will operate properly
and perform its intended function. Check for alignment
of moving parts, binding of moving parts, breakage of
parts, mounting and any other conditions that may affect
its operation. A guard or other part that is damaged must
be properly repaired or replaced by an authorized service
center to avoid risk of personal injury.
 USE THE RIGHT DIRECTION OF FEED. Feed work into
a blade or cutter against the direction of rotation of blade
or cutter only.
 NEVER LEAVE TOOL RUNNING UNATTENDED. TURN
THE POWER OFF. Don’t leave tool until it comes to a
complete stop.
 PROTECT YOUR LUNGS. Wear a face or dust mask if
the cutting operation is dusty.
 PROTECT YOUR HEARING. Wear hearing protection
during extended periods of operation.
 DO NOT ABUSE CORD. Never yank cord to disconnect
from receptacle. Keep cord away from heat, oil, and sharp
edges.
 When operating a power tool outside, use
an outdoor extension cord marked “W-A” or
“W”. These cords are rated for outdoor use and reduce
the risk of electric shock.
 ALWAYS KEEP THE BLADE GUARD AND SPREADER
(SPLITTER) IN PLACE and in working order.
KEEP BLADES CLEAN, SHARP, and with
sufficient set. Sharp blades minimize stalling
and kickback.
WARNING:
Read and understand all instructions. Failure to
follow all instructions listed below, may result in
electric shock, fire and/or serious personal injury.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS
 KNOW YOUR POWER TOOL. Read the operator’s
manual carefully. Learn the saw’s applications and
limitations as well as the specific potential hazards related
to this tool.
 GUARD AGAINST ELECTRICAL SHOCK by
preventing body contact with grounded
surfaces. For example, pipes, radiators, ranges,
refrigerator enclosures.
 KEEP GUARDS IN PLACE and in good working order.
 REMOVE ADJUSTING KEYS AND WRENCHES. Form
habit of checking to see that keys and adjusting wrenches
are removed from tool before turning it on.
 KEEP WORK AREA CLEAN. Cluttered areas and benches
invite accidents. DO NOT leave tools or pieces of wood
on the saw while it is in operation.
 DO NOT USE IN DANGEROUS ENVIRONMENTS. Do
not use power tools in damp or wet locations or expose
to rain. Keep the work area well lit.
 KEEP CHILDREN AND VISITORS AWAY. All visitors should wear safety glasses and be kept a safe
distance from work area. Do not let visitors contact
tool or extension cord while operating.
 MAKE WORKSHOP CHILDPROOF with padlocks and
master switches, or by removing starter keys.
 DON’T FORCE TOOL. It will do the job better and safer
at the feed rate for which it was designed.
 USE RIGHT TOOL. Don’t force the tool or attachment to
do a job it was not designed for. Don’t use it for a purpose
not intended.
 USE THE PROPER Extension Cord. Make sure your
extension cord is in good condition. Use only a 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 and overheating. A wire gauge size
(A.W.G.) of at least 14 is recommended for an extension
cord 25 feet or less in length. If in doubt, use the next
heavier gauge. The smaller the gauge number, the heavier
the cord.
 DRESS PROPERLY. Do not wear loose clothing, gloves,
neckties, or jewelry. They can get caught and draw you
into moving parts. Rubber gloves and nonskid footwear
are recommended when working outdoors. Also wear
protective hair covering to contain long hair.

you are doing and use common sense. Do not operate
tool when you are tired. Do not rush.
 DO NOT USE TOOL IF SWITCH DOES NOT TURN IT
ON AND OFF. Have defective switches replaced by an
authorized service center.
 USE ONLY CORRECT BLADES. Do not use blades with
incorrect size holes. Never use blade washers or blade
bolts that are defective or incorrect. The maximum blade
capacity of your saw is 10 in. (254 mm).
 Before making a cut, be sure all adjustments are secure.
 BE SURE BLADE PATH IS FREE OF NAILS. Inspect for
and remove all nails from lumber before cutting.
 Never touch blade or other moving parts during
use.
NEVER START A TOOL WHEN ANY ROTATiNG COMPONENT IS IN CONTACT WITH THE WORKPIECE.
 DO NOT operate A tool while under the
influence of drugs, alcohol, or any
medication.
 When servicing use only identical replacement parts.
Use of any other parts may create a hazard or cause
product damage.
 Use only recommended accessories listed

are not listed may cause the risk of personal injury.
Instructions for safe use of accessories are included
with the accessory.
 DOUBLE CHECK ALL SETUPS. Make sure blade is
tight and not making contact with saw or workpiece
before connecting to power supply.
 KEEP HANDS AWAY FROM CUTTING AREA. Keep
hands away from blades. Do not reach underneath
work or around or over the blade while blade is rotating.
Do not attempt to remove cut material when blade is
moving.
Blade coasts after being turned off.
 NEVER USE IN AN EXPLOSIVE ATMOSPHERE.
Normal sparking of the motor could ignite fumes.
 Inspect TOOL CORDS periodically. If damaged, have repaired by a qualified service technician at
an authorized service facility. The conductor with insulation
having an outer surface that is green 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. Repair or replace a damaged or worn cord
immediately. Stay constantly aware of cord location and
keep it well away from the rotating blade.
 Inspect EXTENSION CORDS periodically and
replace if damaged.
 GROUND ALL TOOLS. If tool is equipped with threeprong plug, it should be plugged into a three-hole electrical receptacle.
 CHECK WITH A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN or service
personnel if the grounding instructions are not completely
understood or if in doubt as to whether the tool is properly
grounded.
 Use only correct electrical devices: 3-wire
extension cords that have 3-prong grounding plugs and
3-pole receptacles that accept the tool's plug.
 DO NOT MODIFY the plug provided. If it will not fit the
outlet, have the proper outlet installed by a qualified
electrician.

grease. Always use a clean cloth when cleaning. Never
SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
FIRMLy bOLT THE SAw TO A wORK bENCH OR LEG
STAND at approximately waist height.
NEVER OPERATE THE SAw ON THE FLOOR.
GUARD AGAINST KICKBACK. Kickback occurs when
the blade stalls rapidly and workpiece is driven back
towards the operator. It can pull your hand into the blade
resulting in serious personal injury. Stay out of blade path
and turn switch off immediately if blade binds or stalls.
 USE RIP FENCE. Always use a fence or straight edge
guide when ripping.
 SUPPORT LARGE PANELS. To minimize risk of blade
pinching and kickback, always support large panels.
 Remove all fences and auxiliary tables
before transporting saw. Failure to do so can result in an
accident causing possible serious personal injury.
 ALWAYS USE BLADE GUARD, Spreader, AND ANTIKICKBACK PAWLS on all “through-sawing” operations.
Through-sawing operations are those in which the blade
cuts completely through the workpiece as in ripping or
cross cutting. Keep the blade guard down, the anti-kickback pawls down, and the spreader in place over the
blade.
 ALWAYS SECURE work firmly against the rip fence or
miter gauge.
 ALWAYS USE A PUSH STICK FOR RIPPING NARROW STOCK. A push stick is a device used to push a
workpiece through the blade instead of using your hands.
Size and shape can vary but the push stick must always
be narrower than the workpiece to prevent the push stick
from contacting the saw blade. When ripping narrow
stock, always use a push stick, so your hand does not
come close to the saw blade. Use a featherboard and
push blocks for non-through cuts.
4
SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
 NEVER perform any operation “freehand” which means
using only your hands to support or guide the workpiece.
Always use either the rip fence or miter fence to position
and guide the work.
 NEVER stand or have any part of your body in line with
the path of the saw blade.
 NEVER reach behind, over, or within three inches of the
blade or cutter with either hand for any reason.
 MOVE THE RIP FENCE out of the way when cross cutting.
 AVOID AWKWARD OPERATIONS AND HAND
POSITIONS where a sudden slip could cause your hand
to move into the cutting tool.

ELECTRICAL
Extension Cords
SPEED AND WIRING
Use only 3-wire extension cords that have 3-prong grounding plugs and 3-pole receptacles that accept the tool's plug.
When using a power tool at a considerable distance from the
power source, use an extension cord heavy enough to carry
the current that the tool will draw. An undersized extension
cord will cause a drop in line voltage, resulting in a loss of
power and causing the motor to overheat. Use the chart
provided below to determine the minimum wire size required
in an extension cord. Only round jacketed cords listed by
Underwriter's Laboratories (UL) should be used.
The no-load speed of this tool is approximately 5,000 rpm.
This speed is not constant and decreases under a load or
with lower voltage. For voltage, the wiring in a shop is as
important as the motor’s horsepower rating. A line intended
only for lights cannot properly carry a power tool motor. Wire
that is heavy enough for a short distance will be too light for
a greater distance. A line that can support one power tool
may not be able to support two or three tools.
Grounding Instructions
This product must be grounded. In the event of a malfunction
or breakdown, grounding provides a path of least resistance for
electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock. This tool is
equipped with an electric cord having an equipment-grounding
conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged
into a matching outlet 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 outlet,
have the proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.

Improper installation of the grounding plug can
result in a risk of electric shock. When repair or
replacement of the cord is required, do not connect
the grounding wire to either flat blade terminal.
The wire with insulation having an outer surface
that is green with or without yellow stripes is the
grounding wire.
WARNING:
Keep the extension cord clear of the working area.
Position the cord so that it will not get caught on
lumber, tools or other obstructions while you are
working with a power tool. Failure to do so can
result in serious personal injury.
Check with a qualified electrician or service personnel if the
grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if
in doubt as to whether the tool is properly grounded.
Repair or replace a damaged or worn cord immediately.

SPREADER / RIVING KNIFE - A removable metal piece
of the blade guard assembly, slightly thinner than the saw
blade, which helps keep the kerf open and prevent kickback.
When in the through sawing, or “up” position, it is higher
than the saw blade and becomes a spreader. When in the
non-through sawing, or “down” position, it is below the saw
blade teeth and becomes a riving knife.
BLADE - This saw is provided with a 36-tooth, 10 in.
carbide blade. The blade is raised and lowered with the
height/bevel adjusting handwheel. Bevel angles are locked
with the bevel locking lever.

OPERATION
CAUSES OF KICKBACK
WARNING:
Kickback can occur when the blade stalls or binds, kicking
the workpiece back toward you with great force and speed. If
your hands are near the saw blade, they may be jerked loose
from the workpiece and may contact the blade. Kickback can
cause serious injury. Use precautions to avoid the risks.
Kickback can be caused by any action that pinches the
blade in the wood such as:
 Making a cut with incorrect blade depth
 Sawing into knots or nails in the workpiece
 Twisting the wood while making a cut
 Failing to support work
 Forcing a cut
 Cutting warped or wet lumber
 Using the wrong blade for the type of cut
 Not following correct operating procedures
 Misusing the saw
 Failing to use the anti-kickback pawls
 Cutting with a dull, gummed-up, or improperly set
blade
Do not allow familiarity with tools to make you
careless. Remember that a careless fraction of a
second is sufficient to inflict serious injury.
WARNING:
Always wear eye protection with side shields
marked to comply with ANSI Z87.1. Failure to do
so could result in objects being thrown into your
eyes, resulting in possible serious injury.
WARNING:
Do not use any attachments or accessories not
recommended by the manufacturer of this tool.
The use of attachments or accessories not recommended can result in serious personal injury.
AVOIDING KICKBACK
WARNING:
 Always use the correct blade depth setting. The top of
the blade teeth should clear the workpiece by 1/8 in. to
1/4 in.
 Inspect the work for knots or nails before beginning a
cut. Knock out any loose knots with a hammer. Never
saw into a loose knot or nail.
 Always use the rip fence when rip cutting and the miter
gauge when cross cutting. This helps prevent twisting
the wood in the cut.
 Always use clean, sharp, and properly-set blades. Never
make cuts with dull blades.
 To avoid pinching the blade, support the work properly
before beginning a cut.
 When making a cut, use steady, even pressure. Never
force cuts.
 Do not cut wet or warped lumber.
 Always hold your workpiece firmly with both hands or with
push sticks. Keep your body in a balanced position to
be ready to resist kickback should it occur. Never stand
directly in line with the blade.
 Use the right type of blade for the cut being made.
Although many of the illustrations in this manual
are shown with the blade guard removed for clarity,
do not operate the saw without the blade guard
unless specifically instructed to do so.
WARNING:
The table saw must be mounted to a firm supporting, waist high surface such as a workbench or leg
stand. Many illustrations in this manual are shown
with the saw unmounted for clarity.
APPLICATIONS
You may use this tool for the purposes listed below:
Straight line cutting operations such as cross cutting,
ripping, mitering, beveling, and compound cutting
Dado or molding cuts with optional accessories
Cabinet making and woodworking
NOTE: This table saw is designed to cut wood and wood
composition products only.
cutting aids
Basic Operation of the TABLE Saw
See Figure 17.
Push sticks are devices used for safely pushing a workpiece
through the blade. They can be made in various sizes and
shapes from scrap wood to use in a specific project. The
stick must be narrower than the workpiece, with a 90˚ notch
in one end and shaping for a grip on the other end.
A push block has a handle fastened by recessed screws
from the underside. Be sure the screw is recessed. Use it
on non-through cuts.
The 3-prong plug must be plugged into a matching outlet
that is properly installed and grounded according to all local
codes and ordinances. Improper connection of the equipment can result in electric shock. Do not modify the plug if
it will not fit the outlet. Have the correct outlet installed by
a qualified electrician. Refer to the Electrical section in this
manual.
20
OPERATION
Prepare the saw for ripping as discussed on page 27. Set the
rip fence to allow approximately a 1/4 in. “finger” to be cut in
the stock. Feed the stock only to the mark previously made
at 6 in. Turn the saw Off and allow the blade to completely
stop rotating before removing the stock. Reset the rip fence
and cut spaced rips into the workpiece to allow approximately
1/4 in. fingers and 1/8 in. spaces between the fingers.
PUSH STICKS
HOW TO MOUNT A FEATHERBOARD
PUSH BLOCKS
See Figure 19.
Completely lower the saw blade. Position the rip fence to the
desired adjustment for the cut to be performed and lock the
rip fence. Place the workpiece against the fence and over the
saw blade area. Adjust the featherboard to apply resistance
to the workpiece just forward of the blade. Attach C-clamps
to secure the featherboard to the edge of the saw table.
Fig. 17
FEATHERBOARD
A featherboard is a device used to help control the workpiece
by guiding it securely against the table or fence. Featherboards are especially useful when ripping small workpieces
and for completing non-through cuts. The end is angled
with a number of short kerfs to give a friction hold on the
workpiece and locked in place on the table with a C-clamp.
Test that it can resist kickback.
warning:
The featherboard must be installed in front of
the blade. Do not locate the featherboard to the
rear of the blade. Kickback can result from the
featherboard pinching the workpiece and binding
the blade in the saw kerf if positioned improperly.
Failure to heed this warning can result in serious
personal injury.
warning:
Place the featherboard against the uncut portion of
the workpiece to avoid kickback that could cause
serious personal injury.

HOW TO MAKE A FEATHERBOARD
See Figure 18.
The featherboard is an excellent project for your saw.
Select a solid piece of lumber approximately 3/4 in. thick,
3-5/8 in. wide and 18 in. long. Mark the center of the width
on one end of the stock. Miter one-half of the width to 30°
and miter the other half of the same end to 45° (see page
28 for information on miter cuts). Mark the board from the
point at 6 in., 8 in., 10 in. and 12 in. Drill a 3/8 in. hole at the
8 in., 10 in., and 12 in. marks.

types of cuts
See Figure 20.
There are six basic cuts: 1) the cross cut, 2) the rip cut, 3) the
miter cut, 4) the bevel cross cut, 5) the bevel rip cut, and
6) the compound (bevel) miter cut. All other cuts are
combinations of these basic six. Operating procedures for
making each kind of cut are given later in this section.
1
Cross Cut
WARNING:
2
Always make sure the blade guard and anti-kickback pawls are in place and working properly when
making these cuts to avoid possible injury.
Rip Cut
Cross cuts are straight 90° cuts made across the grain of
the workpiece. The wood is fed into the cut at a 90° angle
to the blade, and the blade is vertical.
Rip cuts are made with the grain of the wood. To avoid
kickback while making a rip cut, make sure one side of the
wood rides firmly against the rip fence.
Miter cuts are made with the wood at any angle to the
blade other than 90°. The blade is vertical. Miter cuts tend
to “creep” during cutting. This can be controlled by holding
the workpiece securely against the miter gauge.
3
Miter Cut
4
WARNING:
Bevel Cross Cut
Always use a push stick with small pieces of wood,
and also to finish the cut when ripping a long narrow piece of wood, to prevent your hands from
getting close to the blade.
5
Bevel cuts are made with an angled blade. Bevel cross cuts
are across the wood grain, and bevel rip cuts are with the
grain. The rip fence must always be on the right side of the
blade for bevel rip cuts.
Bevel Rip Cut
Compound (or bevel) miter cuts are made with an angled
blade on wood that is angled to the blade. Be thoroughly
familiar with making cross cuts, rip cuts, bevel cuts, and
miter cuts before trying a compound miter cut.
6
Compound (bevel) Miter Cut
CUTTING TIPS
Fig. 20
Dado and rabbet cuts are non-through cuts which can be
either rip cuts or cross cuts. Carefully read and understand
all sections of this operator’s manual before attempting any
operation.
 The kerf (the cut made by the blade in the wood) will be
wider than the blade to avoid overheating or binding.
Make allowance for the kerf when measuring wood.
 Make sure the kerf is made on the waste side of the
measuring line.
 Cut the wood with the finish side up.
 Knock out any loose knots with a hammer before making
the cut.
 Always provide proper support for the wood as it comes
out of the saw.
WARNING:
Do not use blades rated less than the speed of
this tool. Failure to heed this warning could result
in personal injury.

See Figure 40.
Non-through cuts (made with a standard 10 in. blade) can be
made with the grain (ripping) or across the grain (cross cut).
The use of a non-through cut is essential to cutting grooves,
rabbets, and dadoes. This is the only type cut that is made
without the blade guard assembly installed. Make sure the
blade guard assembly is reinstalled upon completion of this
type of cut. Read the appropriate section which describes
the type of cut in addition to this section on non-through or
dado cuts. For example, if your non-through cut is a straight
cross cut, read and understand the section on straight cross
cuts before proceeding.
