SAW
ed for 120 volt 15 amp circuits. The green
conductor in the cord is the grounding wire. To
avoid electrocution,
NEVER connect the green
wire to a live terminal.
5. To avoid injury from electrical shock, make sure
your fingers do not touch the plug's metal prongs
when plugging in or unplugging the saw.
6. To avoid back n.ury, get help or use recommended casters when you need to move the saw.
Always get help if you need to lift the saw. Hold
the saw close to your body. Bend your knees so
you can lift with your legs, not your back.
7. NEVER STAND ON TOOL. Serious injury could
occur if the tool t_ps or you accidentally
hit the
cutting tool. Do not store anything above or near
the tool where anyone might stand on the tool to
reach them.
BEFORE EACH USE:
1. Inspect your saw.
a. To avoid injury from accidental starting, unplug
the saw, turn the switch off and remove the
switch key before raising or removing the
guard, changing the cutting tool. changing
the setup or adjusting anything.
b. Check for alignment of moving parts, binding
of moving parts, breakage of parts, mounting,
and any other conditions that may affect the
way it works. If any part is missing, bent, or
broken in anyway, or any electrical parts don't
work properly, turn the saw off and unplug the
saw.
c. Replace damaged, missing, or failed parts
before using the saw again.
d. Use the sawblade guard, spreader, and antikickback pawls for any thru-sawing (wher)ever
the blade comes through the top of the workpiece). Make sure the pawls work properly.
Make sure the spreader is in line with the
sawblade.
e. REMOVE

f. To avoid injury from jams, slips or thrown pieces
(kickback an(Jthrowback)_
1. USE ONLY RECOMMENDED
ACCESSO:
R|ES. Follow the instructions that come with
the accessories. Consult the owners manual
!or recommended accessories. The use of
improper accessories may cause risk of injury
to persons.
2. Choose the right blade orcutting accessory
for the material and the type of cutting you
plan to do.
3. Never use grinding wheels, abrasive cut-off
wheels, friction
wheels (metal slitting
blades) wire wheels or buffing wheel. They
can fly apart explosively.
4. Choose and inspect your cutting tool carefully.
a. To avoid cutting tool failure and thrown
shrapnel (broken pieces of blade), use
only 10" or smaller blades or other cutting
tools marked for speeds of 3450 rpm or
higher.
b. Always use unbroken, balanced blades
designed to fit this saw's 5/8" arbor.
c. When thru-sawing, (making cuts where
the blade comes through the workpiece
top) always use a 10 inch diameter blade.
This keeps the spreader in closest to the
blade.
d. Do not overtighten arbor nut. Use arbor
wrenches to "snug" it securely.
e. Use only sharp blades with properly set
teeth. Consult a professional blade sharpener when in doubt.
f. Keep blades clean of gum and resin.
5. Adjust table inserts flush with the table top.
NEVER use the saw without the proper
insert.
6. Make sure all clamps and locks are tight
and no parts have any excessive play,
2. KEEP WORK AREA CLEAN
a. Cluttered areas and benches invite accidents,
Floor must not be slippery
from wax or
sawdus_
b. To avoid burns or ott_er fire damage, never use
the saw near flammable liauids, vapors or
gases.
Plan ahead to protect your eyes, hands, face.'
ears.
a. To avoid injury, don't do layout, assembly, or
setup work on the table while the blade is
spin ning. It could cut or throw anything hitting
the blade.
AVOID ACCIDENTAL
STARTING - Make sure
switch is "OFF" before plugging saw in.
Plan your work
1. USE THE RIGHT TOOL - Don't force tool or
attachment to do a job it was not designed for.
2. Dress for safety:
- Do not wear loose clothing, gloves, neckties
or jewelry (rings, wristwatches).
They can get
caught and draw you into moving parts.
- Wear nonslip footwear.
- Tie back long hair.
- Roll long sleeves above the elbow
- Noise levels vary widely. To avoid possible
hearing damage, wear ear plugs or muffs
when using saw for long periods of time.
- Any power saw can throw foreign objects into
the eyes. This can cause permanent
eye
damage, Wear safety goggles (not glasses)
that comply with ANSI Z87.1 (shown on package). Everyday eyeglasses have only impact
resistant lenses. They are not safety glasses.
Safety goggles are available at Sears retail
catalog stores. Glasses or goggles not in
compliance with ANSI Z87,1 could seriously
hurt you when they break.
WEAR
YOUR
- For dusty operations, wear a dust mask along
with the safety goggles.
3. Inspect your workpiece. Make sure there are no
nails or foreign objects in the part of the workpiece to be cut.
4. Plan your cut toavoid KICKBACKSand THROWBACKS - when a part or all of the workpiece
binds on the blade and is thrown violently back
toward the front of the saw:
- Never cut FREEHAND: Always use either a rip
fence, miter gauge or fixture to position and
guide the work. so it won't twist, bind on the
blade and kickback.
-Make
sure there's no debris between the
workpiece and its supports.
- When cutting irregularly shaped workpieces,
plan your work so it will not slip and pinch the
blade:
- A piece of molding, for example, must lie
flat or be held by a fixture or jig that will not
let it twist, rock or slip while being cut, Use
jigs. fixtures where needed to prevent workpiece shifting.
- Use a different, better suited type of tool for
work that can't be made stable.
- Use extra caution with large, very small or
awkward workpieces:
-Use extra supports (tables, saw horses,
blocks, etc.) for any workpieces
large
enough to tip when not held down to the
table top. NEVER use another person as a
substitutefor a table extension, or as additional support for a workpiece that is longer
or wider then the basic saw table, orto help
feed. support or pull the workpiece.
- Never confine the piece being cut oft. That
is, the piece NOT against the fence, miter
gauge or fixture. Never hold it. clamp it,
touch it, or use length stops against it. tt
must be free to move. If confined, it could
get wedged against the blade and cause a
kickback or throwback.
- Never cut more than one workpiece at a
time.
- Never turn your table saw "ON" before
clearing everything except the workpiece
and related support devices off the table.
Plan the way you will push the workpiece through.
- NEVER putt the workpiece through. Start and
finish the cut from the front of the table saw.
- NEVER put your fingers or hands in the path of
the sawblade or other cutting tool.
- NEVER reach in back of the cutting tool with
either hand to hold down or support the workpiece, remove wood scraps, or for any other
reason.
- Avoid hand positions where a sudden slip could
cause fingers or hand to move into a saw blade o r
other cutting tool.
- DON'T OVERREACH. Always keep good footing
and balance.
- Push the workpiece against the rotation of the
blade. NEVER feed material into the cutting tool
from the rear of the saw.
- Always push the workpiece
sawblade.
all the way past the
- As much as possible, keep you r face and body to
one side of the sawblade, out of line with a
possible kickback or throwback.
- NEVER turn the saw "ON" before clearing the
table of all tools, wood scraps, etc.. except the
werkpiece and related feed or support devices
for the cut planned.

A CARELESS
MISTAKE.
ALWAYS
REMEMBER THAT A CARELESS FRACTION OF A
SECOND IS ENOUGH
TO CAUSE A SEVERE
INJURY.
1. Before actually cutting with the saw watch it
while it runs for a short while. If it makes an
unfamiliar noise or vibrates a lot, stop immediately. Turn the saw off. Unplug the saw. Do not
restart until finding and fixing the problem.
,2. Make sure the top of the arbor or cutting tool
turns toward the front of the saw.
3. Set the cutting tool as low as possible for the cut
you're planning.
4. KEEPCHILDREN
AWAY. All visitors should be
5. Let the blade reachfull speed before cutting.
6. DON T FORCE TOOL. It will do the job bette
and,safer at its designed rate. Feed the workpiece
into the blade only fast enough to let it cut
without bogging down or binding.
c. Wait for all moving
parts to stop.
d, Check blade, spreader and fence for proper
alignment before starting, again.

RiP TYPE CUTS
lifting
the
for
- NEVER use the miter gauge when ripping.
- Use a push stick whenever the fence is 2 to 6
inches from the blade. Use an auxiliary fence and
push block whenever the fence must be within 2
inches of the blade. (See "Basic Saw Operation
Using The Rip Fence" section.)
- Never rip anything shorter than 10" long.
-When using a push stick or push block, the
trailing end of the _)oard must be square. A push
stick or block against an uneven end could slip
off or push the work away from the fence.
- A FEATHERBOARD
can help guide the workpiece. See BASIC SAW OPERATION - USING
THE RIP FENCE. Always use featherboards for
any non-thru rip type cuts.

Before Starting
-To avoid kickbacks and slips into the blade,
make surethe rip fence is parallel to the sawblade.
- Check the antikickback pawls. (See BASIC SAW
OPERATION - USING THE RIP FENCE.) The
pawls must stop a kickback once it has started.
Replace or sharpen antikickback
pawls when
points become dul t.
- Plastic and composition
(like hardboard) materials may be cut on your saw. However, since
these are usually quite hard and slippery, the
antikickback
pawls may not stop a kickback.
Therefore, be especially careful in your set-up
and cutting procedures.
While cutting

addiUonai instructions for
CROSS CUT TYPE CUTS
Before starting
- NEVER use the rip fence when crosscutting.
- An auxiliary wood facing attached to the miter
gauge can help prevent workpiece twisting and
throwbacks. Attach it to the holes provided.
Make the facing long enough and big enough to
support your work, Make sure, however, it will
not interfere with the sawblade guard.
- Use jigs or fixtures to help hold any piece too
small to extend across the full length of the miter
gauge face during the cut. This lets you properly
hold the miter gauge and workpiece and hetps
keep your hands away from the blade.
GLOSSARY
While cutting
- To avoid blade contact, always hold the miter
gauge as shown in the BASIC SAW OPERATIONS - USING THE MITER GAUGE.
BEFORE LEAVING THE SAW
1. Turn the saw off.
2. Wait for blade to stop spinning.
3. Make workshop child-proof. Lock the shop. Disconnect master switches. Remove the yellow
switch key. Store it away from children and
others not qualified to use the tool.
4. Unplug the saw.

ALWAYS
REMEMBER THAT A CARELESS FRACTION OF A
SECOND IS ENOUGH TO CAUSE A SEVERE
INJURY.
1. Before actually cutting with the saw. watch it
while it runs for a short while. If it makes an
unfamiliar
noise or vibrates excessively, stop
immediately, Turn the saw off_ Unplug the saw.
Do not restart until finding and correcting tl_e
problem.
2. Make sure the top of the arbor or cuthng tool
turns toward the front of the saw.
3. Set the cutting tool as low as possible for othe cut
you're _)tanning.
4. KEEP CHILDREN AWAY. All visitors should be
kept a safe distance from work. Make sure
bystanders are clear of the saw and workp_ece.
5, Let the blade reach full speed before cutting.
6. DON'T FORCE TOOL. It will do the job better
and safer at its designed rate. Feed the work p=ece
into the blade only fast enough to let it cut
without bogging down or binding.
7 Before freeing any jammed material:
a. Turn switch "OFF"

4. Unplug the saw.
USING
THE
MITER
GAUGE
The MITER GAUGE is used when CROSSCUTTING,
MITER CUTTING, BEVEL CUTTING, COMPOUND
MITER CUTTING, DADOING and when RABBETTING
AND MOLDING across the end of a narrow workpiece.
- An auxiliary wood facing attached to the miter
gauge can help prevent workpiece twisting and
throwbacks.
Attach it to the holes provided.
Make the facing long enough and big enough to
support your work. Make sure, however, it will
not in.terfere with the sawblade guard.
- Use jigs or fixtures to help hold any piece too
small to extend across the full length of the miter
gauge face during the cut. This lets you properly
hold the miter gauge and workpiece and helps
keep your hands away from the blade.
WARNING:
FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY, ALWAYS
OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING SAFETY PRECAUTIONS IN ADDITION TO THE SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS ON PAGES 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 26, 27, AND 28.
