RULES
FOR
SAFE
OPERATION
(Continued)
USE THE PROPER EXTENSION CORD. Make
sure your extension cord is in good condition.
When using an extension cord, be sure to use
one 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 gage 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 gage. The smaller the gage number, the
heavier the cord.
INSPECT EXTENSION CORDS PERIODICALLY and replace if damaged.
DRESS PROPERLY. Do not wear loose clothing,
gloves, neckties, rings, bracelets, or other
jewelry. They can get caught and draw you into
moving parts. Rubber gloves and nonslip footwear are recommended when working outdoors.
Also wear protective hair covering to contain long
hair.
ALWAYS WEAR SAFETY GLASSES WITH
SIDE SHIELDS. Everyday eyeglasses have only
impact-resistant lenses; they are NOT safety
glasses.
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.
SECURE WORK. Use clamps or a vise to hold
work when practical. It's safer than using your
hand and it frees both hands to operate tool.
DO NOT OVERREACH.
balance at all times.
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 a qualified service technician at a Sears store
to avoid risk of personal injury.
NEVER LEAVE TOOL RUNNING UNATTENDED. TURN THE POWER OFF. Do not
leave tool until it comes to a complete stop.
FIRMLY CLAMP OR BOLT your miter saw to a
workbench or table at approximately hip height.
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 12 in.
KEEP BLADES CLEAN, SHARP AND WITH
SUFFICIENT SET. Sharp blades minimize
stalling and kickback.
DO NOT REMOVE THE SAW'S BLADE
GUARDS. Never operate the saw with any guard
or cover removed. Make sure all guards are
operating properly before each use.
KEEP HANDS AWAY FROM CUTTING AREA.
Keep hands away from blades. Do not reach
underneath work or around or under the blade
while blade is rotating. Do not attempt to remove
cut material when blade is moving.
WARNING:
Blade coasts after turn off.
Keep proper footing and
MAINTAIN TOOLS WITH CARE. Keep tools
sharp and clean for better and safer performance. Follow instructions for lubricating and
changing accessories.
DISCONNECT ALL 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.
USE RECOMMENDED ACCESSORIES. The
use of improper accessories may cause risk of
injury.
NEVER STAND ON TOOL. Serious injury could
occur if the tool is tipped or if the blade 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
DO NOT ABUSE CORD. Never yank cord to
disconnect it from receptacle. Keep cord from
heat, oil, and sharp edges.
INSPECT TOOL CORDS PERIODICALLY and if
damaged, have repaired by a qualified service
technician at a Sears store. Stay constantly
aware of cord location and keep it well away
from the rotating blade.
USE OUTDOOR EXTENSION CORDS. When
tool is used outdoors, use only extension cords
with approved ground connection that are
intended for use outdoors and so marked.
DO NOT USE TOOL IF SWITCH DOES NOT
TURN IT ON AND OFF. Have defective switches
replaced by a qualified service technician at a
Sears store.
KEEP TOOL DRY, CLEAN, AND FREE FROM
OIL AND GREASE. Always use a clean cloth
when cleaning. Never use brake fluids, gasoline,
petroleum-based products, or any solvents to
clean tool.
RULES
•
FOR
SAFE
OPERATION
(Continued)
ALWAYS SUPPORT LONG WORKPIECES to
minimize risk of blade pinching and kickback.
Saw may slip, walk, or slide while cutting long or
heavy boards.
•
BEFORE MAKING A CUT, BE SURE ALL
ADJUSTMENTS ARE SECURE.
NEVER stand or have any part of your body in
line with the path of the saw blade.
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.
ALWAYS release the power switch and allow the
saw blade to stop rotating before raising it out of
the workpiece.
DO NOT TURN THE MOTOR SWITCH ON AND
OFF RAPIDLY. This could cause the saw blade
to loosen and could create a hazard. Should this
ever occur, stand clear and allow the saw blade
to come to a complete stop. Disconnect your saw
from the power supply and securely retighten the
blade bolt.
AVOID CUTTING NAILS. Inspect for and
remove all nails from lumber before cutting.
ALWAYS USE A CLAMP to secure the workpiece when possible.
NEVER TOUCH BLADE or other moving parts
during use.
REPLACEMENT PARTS. All repairs, whether
electrical or mechanical, should be made by
qualified service technician at a Sears store.
NEVER START A TOOL WHEN THE BLADE IS
IN CONTACT WITH WORKPIECE. Allow motor
to come up to full speed before starting cut.
MAKE SURE THE MITER TABLE AND SAW
ARM (BEVEL FUNCTION) ARE LOCKED IN
POSITION BEFORE OPERATING YOUR SAW,
Lock the miter table by securely tightening the
miter lock handle. Lock the saw arm (bevel
function) by securely tightening the bevel lock
knob.
NEVER USE A LENGTH STOP ON THE FREE
SCRAP END OF A CLAMPED WORKPIECE.
NEVER hold onto or bind the free scrap end of
the workpiece in any operation. If a work clamp
and length stop are used together, they must
both be installed on the same side of the saw
table to prevent the saw from catching the loose
end and kicking up.
NEVER cut more than one piece at a time. DO
NOT STACK more than one workpiece on the
saw table at a time.
NEVER PERFORM ANY OPERATION "FREEHAND". Always place the workpiece to be cut on
the miter table and position it firmly against the
fence as a backstop. Always use the fence.
NEVER hand hold a workpiece that is too small
to be clamped. Keep hands clear of the no hands
zone.
NEVER reach behind, under, or within three
inches of the blade and its cutting path with your
hands and fingers for any reason.
NEVER reach to pick up a workpiece, a piece of
scrap, or anything else that is in or near the
cutting path of the blade.
AVOID AWKWARD OPERATIONS AND HAND
POSITIONS where a sudden slip could cause
your hand to move into the blade. ALWAYS
make sure you have good balance. NEVER
operate your miter saw on the floor or in a
crouched position.
A
WARNING:
When servicing use only identical
Craftsman replacement parts. Use of any other
parts may create a hazard or cause product
damage.
NEVER USE IN AN EXPLOSIVE ATMOSPHERE. Normal sparking of the motor could
ignite fumes.
NEVER leave the miter saw unattended while
connected to a power source.
POLARIZED PLUGS. To reduce the risk of
electric shock, this tool has a polarized plug (one
blade is wider than the other). This plug will fit in
a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does
not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still
does not fit, contact a qualified electrician to
install the proper outlet. Do not change the plug
in any way.
IF ANY PART OF THIS MITER SAW IS MISSING or should break, bend, or fail in any way, or
should any electrical component fail to perform
properly, shut off the power switch, remove the
miter saw plug from the power source and have
damaged, missing, or failed parts replaced
before resuming operation.
DO NOT OPERATE THIS TOOL WHILE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF DRUGS, ALCOHOL,
OR ANY MEDICATION.
ALWAYS STAY 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 injury.

WARNING:
A 12 in. blade is the maximum
blade capacity of your saw. Never use a blade
that is too thick to allow outer blade washer to
engage with the flats on the spindle. Larger
blades will come in contact with the blade
guards, while thicker blades will prevent the
blade screw from securing the blade on the
spindle. Either of these situations could result in
a serious accident and can cause serious
personal injury.
Unplug your saw.
WARNING:
Failure to unplug your saw could

spindle lock button is not engaged before
reconnecting saw into power source.
Your compound miter saw has been adjusted at the
factory for making very accurate cuts. However, some
of the components might have been jarred out of
alignment during shipping. Also, over a period of time,
readjustment will probably become necessary due to
wear. After unpacking your saw, check the following
adjustments before you begin using saw. Make any
readjustments that are necessary and periodically
check the parts alignment to make sure that your saw
is cutting accurately.
Fig. 12
WARNING:
Your saw should never be
connected to power supply when you are
assembling parts, making adjustments, installing
or removing blades, or when not in use.
Disconnecting your saw will prevent accidental
starting that could cause serious injury.

CUT
A compound miter cut is a cut made using a miter
angle and a bevel angle at the same time. This type of
cut is used to make picture frames, cut molding, make
boxes with sloping sides, and for certain roof framing
cuts.
Fig. 28
•
MITER
To make this type of cut the control arm on the miter
table must be rotated to the correct angle and the saw
arm must be tilted to the correct bevel angle. Care
should always be taken when making compound miter
setups due to the interaction of the two angle settings.
Adjustments of miter and bevel settings are interdependent with one another. Each time you adjust the
miter setting you change the effect of the bevel
setting. Also, each time you adjust the bevel setting
you change the effect of the miter setting.
It may take several settings to obtain the desired cut.
The first angle setting should be checked after setting
the second angle, since adjusting the second angle
affects the first.
Once the two correct settings for a particular cut have
been obtained, always make a test cut in scrap
material before making a finish cut in good material.
When cutting long pieces of lumber or molding,
support the opposite end of the stock with a roller
stand or with a work surface level with the saw
table.
Align the cutting line on the workpiece with the
edge of saw blade.

MOLDING
LAYING
MITER
Your compound miter saw does an excellent job of
cutting crown molding. In general, compound miter
saws do a better job of cutting crown molding than
any other tool made.
FLAT
ON
THE
TABLE
See Figure 32.
To use this method for accurately cutting crown
molding for a 90 ° inside or outside corner, lay the
molding with its broad back surface flat on the miter
table and against the fence.
In order to fit properly, crown molding must be compound mitered with extreme accuracy.
When setting the bevel and miter angles for compound miters, remember that the settings are interdependent; changing one angle changes the other angle
as well.
The two contact surfaces on a piece of crown molding
that fit flat against the ceiling and the wall of a room
are at angles that, when added together, equal
exactly 90 °. Most crown molding has a top rear angle
(the section that fits flat against the ceiling) of 52 ° and
a bottom rear angle (the section that fits flat against
the wall) of 38 °.
2o
MOLDING
Keep in mind that the angles for crown moldings are
very precise and difficult to set. Since it is very easy
for these angles to shift, all settings should first be
tested on scrap molding. Also most walls do not have
angles of exactly 90 ° , therefore, you will need to fine
tune your settings.

When cutting warped material, always make sure it is
positioned on the miter table with the convex side
against the fence as shown in figure 33.
If the warped material is positioned the wrong way as
shown in figure 34, it will pinch the blade near the
completion of the cut.
