ENG905-1
Work area safety
1.
Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or
dark areas invite accidents.
2.
Do not operate power tools in explosive
atmospheres, such as in the presence of
flammable liquids, gases or dust. Power tools
create sparks which may ignite the dust or fumes.
3.
Keep children and bystanders away while operating
a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control.
Electrical safety
4.
Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never
modify the plug in any way. Do not use any
adapter plugs with earthed (grounded) power
tools. Unmodified plugs and matching outlets will
reduce risk of electric shock.
5.
Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded
surfaces such as pipes, radiators, ranges and
refrigerators. There is an increased risk of
electric shock if your body is earthed or grounded.
6.
Do not expose power tools to rain or wet
conditions. Water entering a power tool will
increase the risk of electric shock.
7.
Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for
carrying, pulling or unplugging the power tool.
Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or
moving parts. Damaged or entangled cords
increase the risk of electric shock.
8.
When operating a power tool outdoors, use an
extension cord suitable for outdoor use. Use of
a cord suitable for outdoor use reduces the risk of
electric shock.
9.
If operating a power tool in a damp location is
unavoidable, use a residual current device
(RCD) protected supply. Use of an RCD reduces
the risk of electric shock.
10. Use of power supply via a RCD with a rated residual
current of 30mA or less is always recommended.
Personal safety
11. Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use
common sense when operating a power tool. Do
not use a power tool while you are tired or under
the influence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A
moment of inattention while operating power tools
may result in serious personal injury.
12. Use personal protective equipment. Always
wear eye protection. Protective equipment such
as dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or
hearing protection used for appropriate conditions
will reduce personal injuries.
13. Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the
switch is in the off-position before connecting
to power source and/or battery pack, picking
up or carrying the tool. Carrying power tools
with your finger on the switch or energising power
tools that have the switch on invites accidents.

27.
14.
Remove any adjusting key or wrench before
turning the power tool on. A wrench or a key left
attached to a rotating part of the power tool may
result in personal injury.
15. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and
balance at all times. This enables better control
of the power tool in unexpected situations.
16. Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or
jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing, and gloves
away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewellery or
long hair can be caught in moving parts.
17. If devices are provided for the connection of dust
extraction and collection facilities, ensure these
are connected and properly used. Use of dust
collection can reduce dust-related hazards.
Power tool use and care
18. Do not force the power tool. Use the correct
power tool for your application. The correct
power tool will do the job better and safer at the
rate for which it was designed.
19. Do not use the power tool if the switch does not turn
it on and off. Any power tool that cannot be controlled
with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
20. Disconnect the plug from the power source and/or
the battery pack from the power tool before making
any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing
power tools. Such preventive safety measures reduce
the risk of starting the power tool accidentally.
21. Store idle power tools out of the reach of
children and do not allow persons unfamiliar
with the power tool or these instructions to
operate the power tool. Power tools are
dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
22. Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment
or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts
and any other condition that may affect the
power tool’s operation. If damaged, have the
power tool repaired before use. Many accidents
are caused by poorly maintained power tools.
23. Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly
maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges
are less likely to bind and are easier to control.
24. Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits
etc. in accordance with these instructions,
taking into account the working conditions
and the work to be performed. Use of the power
tool for operations different from those intended
could result in a hazardous situation.

Your risk from these exposures varies,
depending on how often you do this type of
work. To reduce your exposure to these
chemicals: work in a well ventilated area and
work with approved safety equipment, such as
those dust masks that are specially designed
to filter out microscopic particles.
35. Even when the tool is used as prescribed it is not
possible to eliminate all residual risk factors. The
following hazards may arise in connection with
the tool’s construction and design:
−
Damage to health resulting from hand-arm
vibrations if the power tool is used over a
longer period of time and is not operated
or serviced correctly.
−
Injury or damage caused by loose tool
attachments which can unexpectedly slide
out/from the power tool due to sudden
damage, wear or improper mounting.
all moving portions. When lifting or carrying the
tool, do not use the guard as a carrying handle.
Clean and be careful not to damage the
spindle, flanges (especially the installing
surface) and hex bolt before or when installing
the blade. Damage to these parts could result
in blade breakage. Poor installation may cause
vibration/wobbling or slippage of the blade.
Use only flanges specified for this tool.
Always use accessories recommended in this
manual. Use of improper accessories such as
abrasive cut-off wheels may cause an injury.
Select the correct saw blade for the material to
be cut.
Do not cut metal objects such as nails and
screws. Inspect for and remove all nails,
screws and other foreign material from the
workpiece before operation.
Knock out any loose knots from workpiece
BEFORE beginning to cut.
Do not use the tool in the presence of
flammable liquids or gases.
For your safety, remove the chips, small pieces,
etc. from the work area and table top before
plugging the tool and starting operation.
Keep hands and make your bystander and
yourself position out of path of and not in line
with saw blade. Avoid contact with any
coasting blade. It can still cause severe injury
and never reach around saw blade.
Be alert at all times, especially during
repetitive, monotonous operations. Do not be
lulled into a false sense of security. Blades are
extremely unforgiving.
Make sure the shaft lock is released before the
switch is turned on.
Before using the tool on an actual workpiece,
let it run for a while. Watch for vibration or
wobbling that could indicate poor installation
or a poorly balanced blade.
Wait until the blade attains full speed before cutting.
Stop operation immediately if you notice
anything abnormal.
Turn off tool and wait for saw blade to stop before
moving workpiece or changing settings.
Unplug tool before changing blade, servicing
or not in use.
Some dust created from operation contains
chemicals known to cause cancer, birth
defects or other reproductive harm. Some
examples of these chemicals are:
−
lead from lead-based-painted material and,
−
arsenic
and
chromium
from
chemically-treated lumber.
WHEN USING IN MITER SAW MODE:
36. Replace the kerf board when worn.
37. Use a push stick or a push block to avoid working
with the hands and fingers close to the saw blade.
38. Make sure that the arm is securely fixed when
beveling. Tighten the lever clockwise to fix the arm.
39. Do not perform any operation freehand. The
workpiece must be secured firmly against the turn base
and guide fence with the vise during all operations.
Never use your hand to secure the workpiece.
40. Ensure that the tool is stable before each cut.
41. Fix the tool to a work bench, if needed.
42. Support long workpieces with appropriate
additional supports.
43. Never cut so small workpiece which cannot be
securely held by the vise. Improperly held workpiece
may cause kickback and serious personal injury.
44. Do not use the saw to cut other than wood,
aluminum or similar materials.
45. Make sure that the turn base is properly
secured so it will not move during operation.
46. Make sure the blade does not contact the turn
base in the lowest position and is not contacting
the workpiece before the switch is turned on.
47. Hold the handle firmly. Be aware that the saw
moves up or down slightly during start-up and
stopping.
WHEN USING IN THE TABLE SAW (BENCH SAW)
MODE:
48. Make sure that the arm is securely fixed in the

Do not perform any operation freehand.
Freehand means using your hands to support
or guide the workpiece, in lieu of a rip fence.
Make sure the blade is not contacting the riving
knife or workpiece before the switch is turned on.
Pay particular attention to instructions for reducing
risk of KICKBACK. KICKBACK is a sudden reaction
to a pinched, bound or misaligned saw blade.
KICKBACK causes the ejection of the workpiece
from the tool back towards the operator.
KICKBACKS CAN LEAD TO SERIOUS PERSONAL
INJURY. Avoid KICKBACKS by keeping the blade
sharp, by keeping the rip fence parallel to the blade,
by keeping the riving knife and blade guard in place
and operating properly, by not releasing the
workpiece until you have pushed it all the way past
the blade, and by not ripping a workpiece that is
twisted or warped or does not have a straight edge
to guide along the fence.
Avoid abrupt, fast feeding. Feed as slowly as
possible when cutting hard workpieces. Do
not bend or twist workpiece while feeding. If
you stall or jam the blade in the workpiece,
turn the tool off immediately. Unplug the tool.
Then clear the jam.

CAUTION:
Always be sure that the blade will move down to
bevel direction during a bevel cut. Keep hands out
of path of saw blade.
During a bevel cut, it may create a condition
whereby the piece cut off will come to rest against
the side of the blade. If the blade is raised while the
blade is still rotating, this piece may be caught by
the blade, causing fragments to be scattered which
is dangerous. The blade should be raised ONLY
after the blade has come to a complete stop.
When pressing the handle down, apply pressure
parallel to the blade. If the pressure is not parallel to
the blade during a cut, the angle of the blade might be
shifted and the precision of the cut will be impaired.

Ripping
Push sticks, push blocks or auxiliary fence are types of
"work helpers". Use them to make safe, sure cuts
without the need for the operator to contact the blade
with any part of the body.
Push block
CAUTION:
When cutting long or large workpieces, always
provide adequate support behind the table. DO
NOT allow a long board to move or shift on the
table. This will cause the blade to bind and
increase the possibility of kickback and personal
injury. The support should be at the same height as
the table.
