b. The upper and lower blade guards
c, The arbor lock and handle latch,
d. The bevel clamp, fence clamps, and miter lock
handle,
3, Read and understand all safety instructions
operating procedures throughout the manual
4, Read the following label on the miter saw:
WHEN INSTALLING
and
OR MOVING THE SAW"
1, To avoid injury from unexpected saw movement:
a. Place the saw on a firm level surface where there
is plenty of room for handling and properly sup _
porting the workpiece
b. Support the saw so the table is level and the saw
does not rock.
c. Bolt or clamp the saw to its support..
2, Before moving the saw, lock the miter, bevel and
power-head positions. Unplug electric cord.
3. To avoid back injury, get help when you need to lift
the saw more than 10 inches. Hold the tool close to
your body Bend your knees so you can lift with your
legs, not your back. Lift by using the hand-hold areas
at the bottom of the base. Never carry the tool by
the cord or power head handle, Damage to insulation
could cause an electric shock. Damage to wire connections could cause a fire
b. For dusty operations, wear a face shield along
with safety goggle&
c. Toavoid injury from jams, slips or thrown pieces:
1. Choose the right 10-inch diameter blade for
the material and the type of cutting you pfan
to do, Use this miter saw to cut only wood,
wood-like
products or soft metals like
aluminum Other materials may shatter, grab
at the blade, or create other danger&
2 Make sure the direction of rotation arrow on
the blade matches the direction arrow on the
saw The blade teeth should always point
downward at the front of the saw.
3, Make sure the blade is sharp, undamaged
and properly aligned. With the saw unplugged,
push the power-head all the way down. Hand
spin the blade and check for ctearace. Tilt the
power_head to 45 degree bevel and repeat
the check° If the blade hits anything, make
the adjustments shown in the Maintaining
Maximum Cutting Capacity section
4. Make sure the blade and arbor collars are
clean.
5, Make sure the collars' recessed sides are facing toward the blade,
6, Make sure the recessed side of the blade
washer (just under the arbor screw head)
faces the collar.
4. Place the saw so others will stay out from behind it..
Thrown debris could injure people in its path.
7, Using %-inch box end wrench, make sure the
arbor cap screw retaining the blade collars is
firmly hand tightened.
BEFORE
8 Make sure at, clamps and locks are tight and
there is no excessive play in any parts.
9, Never cut FREEHAND:
EACH USE:
1_ Inspect your saw.. If any part of this miter saw is
missing, or bent, or has failed in any way, or any
electrical parts don't work properly, turn the saw off
and unplug the saw. Reptace damaged, missing, or
failed parts before using the saw again_
2 Plan Your Work
face, ear&
to protect
your
eyes,
hands,
a. Wear safety goggles (not glasses) that comply
with ANSI Z87.1 (shown on package). Using any
a, Brace your workpiece solidly against the
fence and table top so it will not rock or
twist during the cut. Make sure no debris
is caught beneath the workpiece.
b Make sure no gaps between the workpiece, fence and table will let the workpiece
shift after it is cut in two,
c. Use jigs, fixtures or a different tool for unstable workpieces.
3
10. Never cut more than one workpiece at a time.
11. Make sure the cut off piece can move sideways after it's cut off, Otherwise, it could
get wedged against the blade and thrown
violently.
t2. Use extra caution with large, very small or
awkward workpieces:
a. Use extra supports (tables, saw horses,
blocks, etc.) for any workpieces large
enough to tip when not held down to the
table top.
b. Do not use this saw to cut pieces too
small to let you easily hold the work while
you keep the thumb side of your index
(pointer) finger against the outside edge
of the fence.
c_ When cutting irregularly shaped workpieces, plan your work so it wilt not slip
and pinch the blade A piece of molding,
for example, must tie flat or be held by a
fixture or jig that will not let it twist, rock
or slip while being cut..
d_ Properly support round material such as
dowel rods, or tubing. They have a tendency to roll while being cut, causing the
blade to "bite." To avoid this, always use
a fixture designed to properly hold your'
work piece.
13. Make sure there are no nails or foreign objects in the part of the workpiece to be cut,
14. Make sure bystanders are clear of the tool
and workplace. Keep them clear of the area
behind the saw where debris will be thrown.
f. To avoid injury from accidental starting, always
unplug saw before disconnecting the guard, installing or removing any blade, accessory or
attachment, or making any adjustments.
g To avoid an electrical shock, make sure your
fingers do not touch the metal prongs on the plug
when inserting or removing the plug to or from
a live outlet.
h. Never put lubricants
spinning
i. To avoid burns or other fire damage, never use
the saw near flammable liquids, vapors or gases,
j. To avoid injury from unsafe accessories, use only
accessories shown on the recomrnended accessories list in this manual

while., If your saw makes an unfamiliar noise or if it
vibrates excessively, stop immediately. 'Turn the saw
off. Unplug the saw Do not restart until finding and
correcting the problem.
2, Never confine the piece being cut off. Never hold it,
clamp it, touch it, or use length stops against it. tt

15. Never turn your miter saw "ON" before clearing everything except the workpiece and
related support devices off the table_
on the blade while it's
Avoid awkward hand positions where a sudden slip
could cause a hand to move into the blade°
4. Let the blade reach full speed before cutting.
d. To avoid risk of hearing damage, wear ear plugs
or muffs during extended periods of operation.
5, Feed the saw into the workpiece only fast enough
to let the blade cut without bogging down or binding,
e_ To avoid being suddenly pulled into the blade:
6. Before freeing jammed material, release switch and
unplug the saw, Wait for all moving parts to stop.
1. Do not wear gloves,

BASIC SAW OPERATIONS
WARNING: FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY, READ AND
UNDERSTAND ALL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS AND
OPERATING PROCEDURES THROUGHOUT THE
MANUAL BEFORE USING THIS TOOL.
BEFORE EACH USE:
I+ Inspect your saw. Replace damaged, missing, or
failed parts before using the saw
2, Wear safety goggles (not glasses) that comply with
ANSI Z87+1 (shown on package)+
3 For dusty operations, wear a face shield along with
safety goggles,
4, To avoid injury from jams, slips or thrown pieces:
a+ Choose the right 10-inch diameter blade for the
material and the type of cutting you plan to do,
Use this miter saw to cut only wood, wood-like
products or soft metals like aluminum, Other materials may shatter, grab at the blade, or create
other dangers,
WARNING: IF PLANNINGTO SAW ALUMINUM
OR OTHER NON-FERROUS METALS:
® UNDER
ADVERSE
CONDITIONS,
THE
BLADE CAN GRAB WORKPIECE
SUDDENLY AND UNEXPECTEDD(, THIS PRESENTS RISK OF SERIOUS PERSONAL
INJURY TO THE OPERATOR OR BYSTANDERS.
e USE ONLY SAWBLADE
RECOMMENDED
FOR
METAL CUTTING+
SPECIFICALLY
NON-FERROUS
e THE BLADE PROVIDED WITH YOUR SAW
IS NOT RECOMMENDED
FOR METAL
CUTTING.
e DO NOT CUT METAL WORKPIECES THAT
MUST BE HAND HELD: USE AUXILIARY
CLAMPS OR OTHER EQUIPMENT
AS
APPROPRIATE.
e OPERATOR MUST BE EXPERIENCED IN
CIRCULAR SAWING OF NON-FERROUS
METALS OR UNDER SUPERVISION OF AN
EXPERIENCED PERSON.
u_. °
€13
t.O Q>
b Make sure the direction of rotation arrow on the
blade matches the direction arrow on the saw.
The teeth of the blade should always point downward at the front of the saw.,
c, Make sure the blade is sharp, undamaged and
properly aligned.
d Make sure the blade and arbor cellars are clean,
e Make sure the collars' recessed sides are facing
toward the blade.
f, Make sure the recessed side of the blade washer
(just under the arbor screw head) faces the cellar,
g. Using a I/2"box end wrench, make sure the arbor
screw retaining the blade collars is firmly hand
tightened,
h+ Make sure all clamps and locks are tight and
there is no excessive play in any parts,
15
7. Never cut FREEHAND:
a.. Brace your workpiece sotidty against the fence
and table top so it will not rock or twist during
the cut. Make sure there is no debris caught
beneath the workpiece
b, Make sure no gaps between the workpiece,
fence and table will cause shifting after the workpiece is cut intwo,.
c. Use jigs, fixtures or a different tool for unstable
workpieces.
8_
Never cut more than one workpiece at a time..
9. Make sure the cut off piece can move sideways
after it's cut off. Otherwise, it could get wedged
against the blade and thrown violently.
10, Use extra caution with large, very small or awkward
workpieces:
a. Use extra supports (tables, saw horses, blocks,
etco) for any workpieces large enough to tip
when not held down to the table top.,
b
Do not use this saw to cut pieces too small to
let you easily hold the work while you keep the
thumb side of your index (pointer') finger against
the outside edge of the fence_
c_ 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.
d
Properly support round material such as dowel
rods, or tubing. They have a tendency to roll
while being cut, causing the blade to "bite," To
avoid this, use a fixture designed to properly
hold your work piece.
Make sure there are no nails or foreign objects in
the part of the workpiece to be cut,
Make sure bystanders are clear of the tool and
workpie'ce. Keep them clear of the area behind the
saw where debris will be thrown.
Body and Hand Position
Proper positioning of your body and hands when operating the miter saw will make cutting easier and safer,.
Never place hands near cutting are& Place hand at
least 4" from path of blade. Hold workpiece firmly to
the fence to prevent movement toward the blade. Keep
hands in position until trigger has been released and
the blade has completely stopped.. Before making a
cut, make a "dry run" with the power off so you can see
the path of the blade.
WARNING: DO NOT TRY TO CUT SHORT PIECES,
YOU CANNOT PROPERLY SUPPORT THE WORKPIECE AND KEEP YOUR HOLD DOWN HAND THE
REQUIRED DISTANCE FROM THE BLADE.
16
13. Never turn you[ miter saw "ON" before clearing
everything except the workpiece and related support devices off the table..
14 To avoid risk of hearing damage, wear ear plugs
or muffs during extended periods of operation°
15. To avoid being suddenly pulled into the blade:
a. Do not wear gloves.
b. Remove all jewelry and loose clothing
c. Tie back long hair:.
d. Roll long sfeeves above the elbow_
16. To avoid burns or other fire damage, never use the
saw near flammable liquids, vapors or gases.
WHENEVER
SAW IS RUNNING:
17. Before actually cutting with the saw, let it run for a
while, If your saw makes an unfamiliar noise or if
it vibrates excessively, stop immediately. Turn the
saw off. Unplug the saw. Do not restart until finding
and correcting the problem.
18. Never confine the piece being cut off. Never hold
it, clamp it, touch it, or use length stops against iL
it must be free to move sideway& If confined, it
could get wedged against the blade and thrown
violently.
19 Avoid awkward hand positions where a sudden slip
could cause a hand to move into the blade.
20. Let the blade reach full speed before cutting.
21. Feed the saw into the workpiece only fast enough
to let the blade cut without bogging down or binding.
22 Before freeing jammed material, release switch and
unplug the saw. Wait for all moving parts to stop.
23 After finishing a cut, keep holding the power-head
down, release the switch, and wait for all moving
parts to stop before moving your hands.
Miter Cut
When a miter cut is required, move the saw to the
desired angle. Do not stand in front of the saw table.
Move with the handle to the miter angle to make the cut,
NOTE: Remember to loosen the fence lock handles
before changing the miter angle with the fence in the
rear position.
Bevel Cut
When a bevel cut is required, tilt the blade to desired
bevel angle, Stand to the left side of the handle to make
the cut.

Cutting Bowed Material
Before cutting a workpiece, check to make sure it is
not bowed., If it is bowed the workpiece must be
positioned and cut as illustrated Do not position workpiece incorrectly or try to cut the workpiece without the
support of the fence. This will cause pinching of the
workpiece on the blade. The workpiece could suddenly
jump or move and your hand could hit the blade.

Filler Blocks for Cutting
Crown Moldings
The majority of crown moldings have contact surfaces
of 52 ° and 38 ° to the rear surface of the molding, When
joining the face of the filler block these angles must be
maintained. The following illustrations
show two
methods that can be used when cutting crown rnoldings
depending on hew the millerblock is attached to the
fence,
When the filler blocks are attached with the face of the
filler blocks pointing upwards, the molding must be
placed on the table upside down,
When the fitfer blocks are attached to the fence with
the face of the filler blocks pointing downwards, the
molding must be placed on the table tight side up, This
is the same position as it would be when nailed between
the ceiling and wall,
Make 2 filler blocks 10 inches long. Fasten blocks securely to fence, For block face pointing downward, you
may need to drill new fastener holes in the fence.
