Check the fence for proper workpiece
support.
To
avoid fence breakage which could result in thrown
workpieces
and blade contact,
do not use fences
made
of particle
board
or other
composite
materials
- use 3/4" thick lumber long enough
to
extend in one piece from end to end of the saw
table, and tall enough
to be at least even with the
top of the workpiece.
Replace any fence where
existing
slots in the fence
have weakened
the
fence or can snag the workpiece
during
ripping
operations.
Always check table clamps
to make
sure any new fence is held securely.
saw movement:
--Choose
your cutting
tool carefully.
Many saw
accidents
are caused
by use of the wrong
type
blade, dull, badly set, improperly
sharpened
cutting tools, gum or resin adhering
to the cutting
tools, and by blade misalignment
with the saw
fence. Such conditions
can cause the material
to
stick, jam (stall the saw), throw or "kickback"
the
workpiece
at the operator.
--
(a) Bolt the saw to the floor if it tends to slip,
walk, or slide during normal operation.
(b) When table extensions
over 24" wide are
added to either side of the saw, make sure
you either bolt the saw to the floor or support
the outer end of the extension
from the floor
as appropriate.

To avoid cutting tool failure and thrown shrapnel
(broken pieces of blade), use only blades or other
cutting
tools marked for operating
speeds 3450
rpm or higher. Never use a cutting
tool larger in
diameter than the diameter
for which the saw was
designed.
--To
avoid jamming
of the blade,
thrown
workpieces, and damage
to the blade collars,
never
use a broken,
warped,
or unbalanced
blade. Do
not overtighten
arbor nut. Use arbor wrenches
to
"snug" it securely.
--
To avoid injury from accidental
blade contact
by
the workpiece
or the operator
do not perform
layout,
assembly,
or setup
work
on the table
while the cutting tool is rotating. The rotating
tool could cut and throw anything
hitting the
blade causing the saw to unexpectedly
come
forward.
-- Use the right guard. To avoid losing control of the
workpiece, hitting the cutting tool, or being struck
by thrown pieces, never do any cutting un less the
proper guard (with all its parts in place) is installed
and adjusted properly.
-- To avoid injury from thrown pieces, slips, blade
contact, or jamming of the workpiece, make sure
no play exists between the column and column
support or in the carriage and that the arm, yoke,
bevel locks/clamps are tight.
--To
avoid injury from thrown objects, slips or
jamming of the blade due to pinching of the blade
by shifting boards:
(a) Do not leave a long board unsupported so the
spring of the board causes it to twist or rise
from the table.
(b) Check to be sure that pieces will not fall off
the table once they have been cut.
(c) Provide support for the workpiece, based on
its size and the type of operation
to be
performed.
(d) Never use another person as a substitute for a
table extension, or as an additional support
for a workpiece to assist in feeding, supporting, or pulling the workpiece.
(e) Never cut workpieces placed side by side or
stacked on top of each other. The pieces can
slide on each other.
WEAR
YOUR
-- The operation of any power tool can result in
foreign objects being thrown into the eyes, which
can result in permanent eye damage. Always wear
safety goggles complying with ANSI Z87.1 (shown
on package). Safety goggles are available at
Sears retail catalog stores. Use of goggles or
glasses not in compliance with ANSI Z87.1 could
result in severe injury from breakage of the eye
protection.
-- To avoid injury from uncontrollable
reaction or
thrown objects, never turn the saw "ON" before
clearing the table or work surface of all objects
(tools, scraps of wood, etc.) except the properly
supported workpiece and related feed or support
devices for the operation planned.
WHENEVER
THE
SAW
IS RUNNING
-- Always keep alert. Do not allow familiarity
(gained
from frequent
use of your saw) to cause a careless
mistake. Always remember
that a careless fraction
of a second is sufficient to inflict severe, permanent
injury.
If your saw makes an unfamiliar noise or if it
vibrates excessively, stop the operation immediately. Do not restart until the source has been
located and the problem corrected.
Do not cycle the motor switch "ON" and "OFF"
rapidly, as this might cause the sawblade to
loosen. In the event this should ever occur, turn
the switch off, allow the sawblade to come to a
complete stop, and remove the switch key. To
avoid damage to the blade and flange, retighten
the arbor nut normally, not excessively.
Never perform any operation freehand. Injury can
occur from blade contact or thrown pieces when
the workpiece is torn from the hands. "Freehand"
means feeding the sawblade into a workpiece or
feeding the workpiece into the sawblade or other
cutting tool without using the fence or some other
proper device to prevent the workpiece from
twisting and binding on the cutting tool during the
cutting operation.
-- To avoid accidental blade contact, avoid awkward
hand positions where a sudden slip causes a hand
to move toward the sawblade or other cutting
tool. Do not place fingers or hand on the workpiece or table that is in the path of the sawblade.
-- To avoid being pulled into the back of the blade
before you can let go or react, never reach in back
of, or around the cutting tool, with either hand to
hold down the workpiece or for any reason.
-- To avoid injury from unexpected starting, never
attempt to free a stalled sawblade without first
turning the saw "OFF" and removing the switch
key. If the sawblade is stalled or jammed, shut the
saw "OFF", remove the switch key, remove the
workpiece, check for looseness in clamps, arm
and carriage, check the sawblade squareness to
the table surface and to the fence, and check for
heel (see page 18). Adjust as indicated.
-- To avoid injury from falling parts or from falling
into the saw, never climb on or near the saw when
its power is "ON". Never leave the saw area when
power is "ON", or before the cutting tool has
come to a complete stop.
-- To avoid unauthorized saw use, remove the switch
key and put the key away before leaving the saw
area.
BEFORE
STARTING
A RIPPING
TYPE
CUT
To avoid injury from being struck by a thrown
workpiece, position the saw so neither you, a
helper, or a casual observer is forced to stand in
line with the sawblade or workpiece.
Whenever possible, use the "in-rip" position. (See
page 29) This provides maximum clearance for
feeding by hand, push stick, or push block as
appropriate.
-- To avoid thrown workpieces or being pulled into
the saw before you can react, push the workpiece
from the nose side (opposite
chute)
of the guard.

before
starting
the cut that the anti-kickback
pawls will stop the kickback
once it has started.
Make sure points of pawls are sharp. (See page

1. This tool should be connected
toa 120V, 15Amp
branch circuit
with a 15 Amp time delay fuse or
circuit
breaker.
Failure
to use the proper
size
fuse can result in damage to the motor.
2. If the motor fails to start, turn the power switch to
the "OFF" position
immediately.
UNPLUG
THE
TOOL. Check the saw blade to insure that it turns
freely and that its teeth are not wedged
into the
table top. After the blade has been freed, try to
start the motor again. If, at this point, the motor
still fails to start, refer to the "Motor
TroubleShooting
Chart."
3. If the motor should suddenly
stall while cutting
wood, the power switch should be turned off, the
tool unplugged
and the blade freed from the
wood. The motor may now be restarted
and the
cut finished.
4. Frequent

(a) MOTOR
IS OVERLOADED
- Overloading
can
occur
if you feed too rapidly
or if saw is

IS FUSED DIFFERENTLY
FROM RECOMMENDATIONSAlways follow
instructions
for the proper fuse/breaker.
Do
not use a fuse/breaker

capacity
without
consulting
a qualified
electrician.
(c) LOW VOLTAGE
- Although
the motor
is
designed
for operation
on the voltage
and
frequency
specified
on motor
nameplate,
normal
loads will be handled
safely on voltages not more than 10% above or below the
nameplate

Heavy
loads,
however,
require that voltage at motor terminals
equals
the voltage specified
on nameplate.
5. Most motor troubles
may be traced to loose or
incorrect
connections,
overloading,
reduced

(such as small size wire in the
supply
circuit)
or to overly long supply circuit
wire. Always
check the connections,

4. Hold
work firmly against table and fence. To
avoid tipping or throwing of workpieces thicker
than the fence is high, install a higher fence (at
least workpiece thickness).
Always place the
fence in the most forward position (farthest from
the column support) compatible with the workpiece being processed and the operation being
performed. With the carriage fully retracted, the
blade must not contact the workpiece
when
placed against the fence, within the stated capacities of your saw. Do not confine the cutoff piece
with your hand, length stop or any other item.
The blade could throw it, causing an accident.
OF TRAVEL
5. Keep hands well away from saw blade. Do not
place hands where sudden blade or workpiece
movement could cause hand to slip into the path
of the blade. Always keep the hand holding the
workpiece visible at all times.
6. Lock the swivel lock handle. Make sure it is firmly
locked. (See page 21)

OPERATION
NO. 5OUT-RIPPING
AND IN-RIPPING
1. Ripping
is the process of sawing the workpiece
along its length by feeding
it into the sawblade
when
using
the fence
as a guide
and as a
positioning
device to obtain the desired width of
cut. The sawblade
is parallel to fence.
2. Since the work is pushed along the fence, it must
have a straight
edge in order to make sliding
contact with the fence. Also, the work must make
solid contact
with the table, so that it will not
wobble
or kickback.
Provide a straight
edge, to
avoid
kickback
or binding,
even if it means

DADOING
Instructions for operating the different dado blades
are contained in Owner's Manual furnished with the
dado.
The saw arbor is designed
for a dado up to 13/16
inches wide. Using a wider dado on the arbor could
cause the dado and arbor
nut to spin off. Take
several passes of the dado if cut required
is greater
than 13/16 of an inch wide.
For best results and to avoid excessive
load on the
motor never cut a 13/16of an inch wide dado deeper
than 3/8 of an inch in one pass.
When installing
the dado on the arbor, always install
the inside "loose collar"
first to ensure good arbor
nut engagement.
Do not install the outside
blade
collar.
Make sure the arbor nut is snug. Install the
arbor nut directly
against the outside
of the dado.
Use of the dado or molding
head in the horizontal
position
(parallel to table) requires the proper accessory guard be used. (See recommended

MAINTENANCE
WARNING:
FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY, TURN
POWER SWITCH "OFF" AND REMOVE PLUG FROM
POWER SOURCE OUTLET BEFORE MAINTAINING
OR LUBRICATING
YOUR SAW.
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.
PERIODICALLY
LUBRICATE
THESE POINTS
Use SAE No. 10W-30 automotive engine oil and refer
to parts list for locations. Apply a few drops of oil
along the swivel index pin and the bevel index pin
only if the pins have a tendency to stick. Swivel to
in-rip or out-rip for easy access to the swivel index
pin. Bevel saw to 45 ° and bevel index pin can be
easily accessed behind the yoke as illustrated.
Make sure the teeth of the ANTIKICKBACK
pawls
(key #9 on p. 51) are always sharp. If they become
dull they must be replaced.
With a 1/2 inch wrench or
socket
remove
the 5/16 hex nut and old pawls.
Reassemble
new pawls and spreader to antikickback
bar. Check spreader for proper alignment
and correct
if necessary.
(Follow
procedure
on page 20.)
CLEANING
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 tracking surfaces. If packed sawdust
and grease accumulate repeatedly on carriage bearings and track inspect the wipers (key #4 p. 48) for
wear and replce if necessary. (For access to wipers
see "Swivel lock adjustment" p. 32.)
CAUTION: 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.
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.
NO LUBRICATION
REQUIRED
Do not lubricate the carriage ball bearings or motor
bearings as these are sealed ball bearings and
require no added lubrication.
Do not lubricate
between the miter locking rings and the column tube
(keys #5 & 9, p. 44).
\
Lubricate
the bearing points where the arm attaches
to the column
tube. With a #2 phillips
screwdriver
remove two screws and the rear arm cover for access
to these points. Be careful not to get lubricant
on the
locking
rings as this will adversely
affect the miter
locking
function.
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.
The thread on the elevation
shaft assembly
can be
lubricated
through
the oil hole in the center of the
radial arm cap. Lubricate
ramp on the swivel index
spring.
CAUTION: Excessive oil at any location will attract
airborne dust particles and sawdust.
