Left Tilt Unisaw® with 52" Unifence® GENERAL SAFETY RULES Woodworking can be dangerous if safe and proper operating procedures are not followed. As with all machinery, there are certain hazards involved with the operation of the product. Using the machine with respect and caution will considerably lessen the possibility of personal injury. However, if normal safety precautions are overlooked or ignored, personal injury to the operator may result. Safety equipment such as guards, push sticks, hold-downs, featherboards, goggles, dust masks and hearing protection can reduce your potential for injury. But even the best guard won’t make up for poor judgment, carelessness or inattention. Always use common sense and exercise caution in the workshop. If a procedure feels dangerous, don’t try it. Figure out an alternative procedure that feels safer. REMEMBER: Your personal safety is your responsibility. This machine was designed for certain applications only. Delta Machinery strongly recommends that this machine not be modified and/or used for any application other than that for which it was designed. If you have any questions relative to a particular application, DO NOT use the machine until you have first contacted Delta to determine if it can or should be performed on the product.

The Flip Stop Assembly Fig. 62, can be set to any number of positions along the guide rail providing a quick stop setting for the Unifence body by loosening knob (G) and sliding the stop along the rail to the desired position and re- tighten. 2. Any number of stops, Delta Cat. No. 36-899, can be purchased and installed to provide time saving quick stop settings for the Unifence body. 3. If flip stop does not retract fully the bolt (F) Fig. 62, may have to be repositioned in the rail slot to allow the flip stop to retract fully. If bolt (F) needs to be repositioned, just slide the bolt out of the rail and turn the head of the bolt one third of a turn (one flat) and slide back into rail, repeat this until the bolt is in the right position for the flip stop to retract fully, as shown in Fig. 63. Fig. 63 A ASSEMBLING CURSOR TO UNIFENCE BODY C B 1. Remove two screws and flat washers (A) Fig. 64, and assemble the cursor (B) to the Unifence body (C). Replace the two screws and flat washers (A). Fig. 64 2. Fig. 65 illustrates the cursor (B) assembled to the Unifence body. The cursor (B) will be adjusted later. B Fig. 65 20 ASSEMBLING UNIFENCE BODY TO GUIDE RAIL C E F B 1. Turn fence body (A) Fig. 66, upside down and lay it on a table or bench. Pull handle (B) out against fence body. Make certain the surface (C) of clamp bracket is parallel to the face (D) of the fence body, and that the inside edge (E) of the clamp bracket is parallel to surface (F) of the fence body. Turn handle (B) Fig. 66, if necessary. A D Fig. 66 2. Place fence body (A) Fig. 67, onto the guide rail as shown, making sure clamp bracket is inserted into channel (G) on rail. Notice that the clamp handle (B) is turned to the left indent position. A G G B Fig. 67 3. After pushing in on handle (B), turn to the right indent position as shown in Fig. 68. This will prevent fence clamp from sliding out of the channel (G). B G Fig. 68 4. Lock fence body (A) to the guide rail by pushing down on handle (B) as shown in Fig. 69. A B Fig. 69 21 C C A A B B Fig. 71 Fig. 70 ASSEMBLING FENCE TO UNIFENCE BODY 1. The fence (A) can be assembled to clamp plate (B) in either the horizontal position as shown in Fig. 70, or the vertical position as shown in Fig. 71. Make certain the two lock knobs, one of which is shown at (C), are loose and slide fence (A) onto clamp plate (B) as shown. Then tighten the two lock knobs (C). 2. For most normal ripping operations, the bottom of the fence should be positioned slightly above the table surface. Loosen two lock knobs (C) Fig. 72, and place a thin object such as a ruler (D) between the table and fence, as shown. Then tighten two lock knobs (C). C D Fig. 72 FENCE OPERATION 1. Before operating fence, make sure the fence is adjusted parallel to miter gage slot, as explained later on in this manual. 2. For most normal ripping operations of standard size lumber, the fence is used in the vertical position, as shown in Fig. 73. 3. When ripping thin stock, it is sometimes more convenient to use the fence in the horizontal position, as shown in Fig. 74. 4. To move the fence along the guide rail, lift up clamp lever (A), as shown in Fig. 75, slide fence to desired position on the rail, and push down on clamp lever (A) to lock fence in place. Fig. 73 A Fig. 74 Fig. 75 22 5. The distance the fence is positioned away from the blade is indicated by the two witness lines (B) and (C) Fig. 76, located on the cursor (D). Witness line (B) indicates the distance the fence is away from the blade when the fence is in the horizontal position, and witness line (C) indicates the distance the fence is away from the blade when the fence is in the vertical position. If it is necessary to adjust cursor (D), make a test cut with the fence in either the vertical or horizontal position, measure the distance of the finished cut and move the cursor (D) by loosening the two screws (E) Fig. 76. After adjustment is completed tighten the two screws (E). B D C E Fig. 76 6. To remove the fence and fence body assembly (F) Fig. 77, from the guide rail, lift up on fence clamping lever (A) and turn lever (A) to the left indent position. The fence assembly (F) can then be pulled straight off the guide rail and removed. F RIPPING WITH THE UNIFENCE Ripping is the operation of making a lengthwise cut through a board, as shown in Fig. 78, and the rip fence (A) is used to position and guide the work. One edge of the work rides against the rip fence while the flat side of the board rests on the table. Since the work is pushed along the fence, it must have a straight edge and make solid contact with the table. The saw blade guard must be used. On Delta saws, the guard has anti-kickback fingers to prevent kickback and a splitter to prevent the saw kerf from closing and binding the blade. Never stand in the line of the saw cut when ripping. Hold the work with both hands and push it along the fence and into the saw blade as shown in Fig. 78. The work can then be fed through the saw blade with one or two hands. After the work is beyond the saw blade and anti-kickback fingers, the hand is removed from the work. When this is done the work will either stay on the table, tilt up slightly and be caught by the end of the rear guard or slide off the table to the floor. Alternately, the feed can continue to the end of the table, after which the work is lifted and brought along the outside edge of the fence. The cut-off stock remains on the table and is not touched with the hands until the saw blade is stopped, unless it is a large piece allowing safe removal. When ripping boards longer than three feet, it is recommended that a work support be used at the rear of the saw to keep the workpiece from falling off the saw table. If the ripped work is less than 4 inches wide, a push stick should always be used to complete the feed, as shown in Fig. 79. The push stick can easily be made from scrap material as explained in the section “CONSTRUCTING A PUSH STICK.” When ripping material under 2 inches in width, a flat pushboard is a valuable accessory since ordinary type sticks may interfere with the blade guard. That flat pushboard can be made as shown in Fig. 79A. A Fig. 77 A Fig. 78 Fig. 79 23 B A Fig. 80 Fig. 79A When ripping material with a veneer facing that extends over the material, the fence (A) should be in the horizontal position with the veneer (B) extending over the lip of the fence, as shown in Fig. 80. When ripping material with a veneer facing and the material is not thick enough for the veneer to extend over the lip of the fence or if the veneer facing (B) is on both sides of the material, as shown in Fig. 81, the fence can be positioned slightly above the surface of the table. The veneer can be placed between the fence and the table or the veneer can straddle the fence with the material solidly against the fence. B ADJUSTING FENCE PARALLEL TO MITER GAGE SLOTS Fig. 81 The fence (A) Fig. 82, should be adjusted so it is parallel to miter gage slots (B). To check and adjust, move the fence (A) until the bottom front edge of the fence is in line with the edge of the miter gage slot as shown, and push down on fence clamping lever (C). Check to see if the fence is parallel to the miter gage slot the entire length of the table. If the rear of the fence must be moved, slightly tighten or loosen one of the adjustment plugs (D) or (E) Fig. 82, using the arbor wrench or a 7/8" wrench, until the fence is parallel with the miter gage slot. IMPORTANT: DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN PLUGS (D) AND (E) FIG. 82. VERY LITTLE MOVEMENT OF THESE PLUGS IS NECESSARY WHEN ADJUSTING THE FENCE PARALLEL WITH THE MITER GAGE SLOT. E B A D C Fig. 82 ADJUSTING FENCE 90 DEGREES TO TABLE A The fence must be adjusted so that the face of fence (A) Fig. 83, is 90 degrees to the table. To check if the fence is 90 degrees to the table, place a square (B) on the table with one end of the square against the fence, as shown. If an adjustment is necessary, tighten or loosen one of two screws (C) or (D) until the fence is 90 degrees to the table. IMPORTANT: VERY LITTLE MOVEMENT OF THESE SCREWS (C) AND (D) IS NECESSARY TO MAKE THIS ADJUSTMENT. D B C Fig. 83 24 ADJUSTING CLAMPING ACTION OF FENCE LOCKING HANDLE C C When the fence locking handle (A) is pushed to the down position, as shown in Fig. 84, the fence body (B) should be completely clamped to the guide rail. If the fence body (B) is not completely clamped to the guide rail when the handle (A) is in the position shown in Fig. 84, lift up on locking handle (A) Fig. 85, and slightly tighten two adjustment plugs (C) using the arbor wrench or 7/8" wrench. Adjustment plugs (C) should be tightened an equal amount. Check to see if the fence body (B) is completely fastened to the rail by pushing down on locking lever (A). Adjust further if necessary. IMPORTANT: AFTER ADJUSTING THE CLAMPING ACTION OF THE FENCE LOCKING HANDLE, CHECK TO SEE IF THE FENCE IS PARALLEL TO THE MITER GAUGE SLOT AND ADJUST IF NECESSARY. B A Fig. 84 C B C A Fig. 85 C RIPPING ON LEFT SIDE OF SAW BLADE A In some cases it may be desirable to use the fence on the left side of the saw blade. This is accomplished by repositioning the fence (A) Figures 86 and 87, fence clamp bar (B) and lock knobs (C) so that the fence (A) will be attached to the right side of the fence body, as shown in Fig. 87. The complete fence assembly (D) Fig. 87, can easily be moved to the left side of the saw table. B Fig. 86 C A D Fig. 87 25 B A Fig. 88 Fig. 89 USING THE FENCE AS A CUT-OFF GAGE B WARNING: WHEN USING YOUR UNIFENCE AS A CUT-OFF GAGE, MAKE SURE IT IS PROPERLY SET UP AS DESCRIBED HERE. The fence can be used as a cut-off gage when cross cutting a number of pieces to the same length. IMPORTANT: When using the fence as a cut-off gage, it is very important that the rear end of the fence be positioned so that the work piece is clear of the fence before it contacts the saw blade. Fig. 90 When using the fence as a cut-off gage, position the fence (A) to the front as shown in Fig. 88, or purchase a 12" long fence (B), (Delta Cat. No. 34-878), as shown in Fig. 89. A typical operation using the 12" long fence (B) as a cut-off gage is shown in Fig. 90. USING AUXILIARY WOOD FACING ON THE UNIFENCE A It is necessary when performing special operations such as when using the moulding cutterhead to add wood facing (A) Fig. 91, to one side of the rip fence as shown. The wood facing is attached to the fence with wood screws through holes that you must drill in the fence. A suitable stock size for most work is 3/4", although an occasional job may require one inch facing.

Adjust further if necessary. IMPORTANT: AFTER ADJUSTING THE CLAMPING ACTION OF THE FENCE LOCKING HANDLE, CHECK TO SEE IF THE FENCE IS PARALLEL TO THE MITER GAGE SLOT AND ADJUST IF NECESSARY. B A C Fig. 118 33 OPERATING CONTROLS AND UNISAW ADJUSTMENTS STARTING AND STOPPING THE SAW To turn the saw “ON”, push the “ON” button (A) Fig. 119. To stop the machine, push the “OFF” button (B). A LOCKING SWITCH IN THE “OFF” POSITION B IMPORTANT: When the machine is not in use, the switch should be locked in the “OFF” position using a padlock (A) Fig. 120, (Delta Cat. No. 50-325), with a 3/16" diameter shackle to prevent unauthorized use. Fig. 119 OVERLOAD PROTECTION Your saw is supplied with overload protection. If the motor shuts off or fails to start due to overloading (cutting stock too fast, using a dull blade, using the saw beyond its capacity, etc.) or low voltage, let the motor cool three to five minutes. The overload will automatically reset itself and the machine can then be started again by pressing the “ON” button. IMPORTANT: If the motor continually shuts off due to overloading, the cause of overloading must be corrected. If this happens, it is recommended that you contact a qualified electrician. A Fig. 120 B BLADE RAISING MECHANISM A D The saw blade is raised and lowered with the front handwheel (A) Fig. 121. With the exception of hollow ground blades, the blade should be raised 1/8" to 1/4" above the top surface of the material being cut. With hollow ground blades, the blade should be raised the maximum to provide greater clearance. To raise the saw blade, loosen lock knob (B) Fig. 121, and turn the handwheel (A), clockwise. To lower the saw blade, turn handwheel (A) counterclockwise. The saw blade is locked at any height by turning the lock knob (B) Fig. 121, clockwise. Due to the wedge action of this locking device, only a small amount of force is required to lock the blade raising mechanism securely. Any added force merely puts unnecessary strain on the locking device. Limit stops for raising or lowering are permanently built into the mechanism and need no further adjustment. E C Fig. 121 BLADE TILTING MECHANISM The blade tilting mechanism allows the blade to be tilted up to 45 degrees to the right. To tilt the saw blade to the desired angle, loosen lock knob (D) Fig. 121, and turn handwheel (C). A pointer indicates the angle of tilt on scale (E), which is marked in one-degree increments. To lock the saw blade in the desired angle of tilt, tighten lock knob (D). IMPORTANT: ALWAYS LOCK THE BLADE IN POSITION BEFORE TURNING THE SAW “ON”. 34 ADJUSTING 90 AND 45 DEGREE POSITIVE STOPS B Positive stops are provided to quickly and accurately position the blade at 90 and 45 degrees to the table. To check and adjust the positive stops, proceed as follows: A 1. DISCONNECT MACHINE FROM POWER SOURCE. 2. Raise the saw blade all the way to the top and turn the blade tilting handwheel clockwise as far as it will go. Fig. 122 3. Using a square, check to see if the blade is 90 degrees to the table. If an adjustment is necessary, turn the blade tilting handwheel counterclockwise. Loosen locknut (A) Fig. 122, and tighten or loosen adjusting screw (B) until head of screw (B) contacts casting on front trunnion when the blade is at 90 degrees to the table. Then tighten locknut (A). D C 4. Check to see if the tilt indicator pointer points to the zero mark on the scale. Adjust if necessary. 5. Turn the blade tilting handwheel counterclockwise as far as it will go. Using a square, check to see if the blade is at 45 degrees to the table. If an adjustment is necessary, turn the blade tilting handwheel clockwise until the adjusting screw (D) Fig. 123, and locknut (C) are in view, in the opening in the front of the saw cabinet, as shown. Loosen locknut (C) and tighten or loosen adjusting screw (D) until head of screw (D) contacts casting on front trunnion when the blade is at 45 degrees to the table. Then tighten locknut (C). Fig. 123 ADJUSTING TABLE The saw table has been aligned at the factory so the miter gage slots are parallel to the saw blade; however, it is recommended to check the alignment before initial operation as follows: 1. DISCONNECT MACHINE FROM POWER SOURCE. 2. Place a combination square (A) Fig. 124, on the table with one edge of the square in the miter gage slot, as shown, and adjust the square so the rule just touches one of the teeth on the saw blade at the forward position, as shown in Fig. 124. Lock the square in this position. Fig. 124 3. Rotate the saw blade so that the same tooth you used in STEP 2 is in the rear position, as shown in Fig. 125, and check this distance. Both the front and rear measurements should be identical. 4. If an adjustment is necessary, loosen the four screws that hold the table to the saw cabinet. 5. Shift the table until a position is found which brings the saw blade in the center of the table insert slot, and parallel to the miter gage slot. 6. Tighten the four screws that were loosened in STEP 4. 7. Tilt the blade to 45° and turn the saw blade by hand, to insure that the saw blade does not contact the table insert. Fig. 125 35 ADJUSTING TABLE INSERT Place a straight edge (B) across the table at both ends of the table insert as shown in Fig. 126. The table insert (A) should always be level with the table. If an adjustment is necessary, turn the adjusting screws (C), as needed with allen wrench supplied. NOTE: THE MITER GAGE HANDLE CAN BE USED TO STORE THE ALLEN WRENCHES WHEN NOT IN USE. REMOVE THE TOP CAP OF THE MITER GAGE HANDLE FOR THE ALLEN WRENCH STORAGE COMPARTMENT. C A B C Fig. 126 A MITER GAGE OPERATION AND ADJUSTMENT Insert the miter gage bar into the miter gage slot and assemble the washer and lock handle (A) Fig. 127, to the miter gage bar as shown. Fig. 127 The miter gage is equipped with adjustable index stops at 90 degrees and 45 degrees right and left. Adjustment to the index stops can be made by tightening or loosening the three adjusting screws (B) Fig. 128. To rotate the miter gage, loosen lock knob (A) Fig. 128, and move the body of the miter gage (C), to the desired angle. A C The miter gage body will stop at 90 degrees and 45 degrees both right and left. To rotate the miter gage body past these points, the stop link (D) Fig. 128, must be moved up and out of the way. B The head of the miter gage pivots on a special tapered screw (G) Fig. 129, that fastens the head to the miter gage bar. If the miter gage head does not pivot freely, or pivots too freely, it can be adjusted by loosening set screw (H) Fig. 129, with allen wrench supplied, and turning the screw (G) in or out. Be certain to tighten screw (H) after adjustment is made. B D Fig. 128 Your miter gage is equipped with a plate (E) Fig. 129, which fits into the T-Slot groove in the table. This allows the miter gage to be pulled off the front edge of the table without falling. This allows for a longer cut off capacity in front of the blade. Fig. 129 36 MAINTENANCE CHANGING THE SAW BLADE 1. DISCONNECT MACHINE FROM POWER SOURCE. B 2. NOTE: Two wrenches are supplied with the saw for changing the saw blade; a box end wrench and open end wrench. 3. Remove table insert and raise saw blade to its maximum height. C A 4. Place the open end wrench (B) Fig. 130, on the flats of the saw arbor to keep the arbor from turning, and using wrench (A), turn the arbor nut (C) clockwise. Remove arbor nut, blade flange and saw blade. Fig. 130 NOTE: Use only 10" saw blades with 5/8" arbor holes, rated for at least 4000 RPM. 5. Assemble the new blade, making certain the teeth are pointing down at the front of the saw table and assemble outside blade flange and arbor nut. With wrench (B) Fig. 130, on the flats of the arbor to keep it from turning, tighten arbor nut by turning wrench (A) counterclockwise. 6. Replace table insert. REPLACING BELTS AND ADJUSTING BELT TENSION 1. DISCONNECT MACHINE FROM POWER SOURCE. E D 2. Remove motor cover door to gain access to the motor. 3. Place a block of wood (C) Fig. 131, between the motor and saw cabinet as shown. NOTE: It may be necessary to raise the saw arbor in order to insert the wooden block. Lower the saw arbor until the motor contacts the wood. C 4. Loosen bolt (D) Fig. 131, and continue to lower the saw arbor until all tension is removed from the belts (E). Tighten bolt (D). Fig. 131 5. Raise the saw arbor slightly and remove the block of wood (C) Fig. 131. 6. Lower the saw arbor. 7. Remove the belts (E) Fig. 132, one at a time from the arbor pulley (F). F 8. Assemble the three new belts, one at a time in the grooves of the arbor pulley (F) Fig. 132, and onto the motor pulley. 9. When the new belts are assembled on the arbor pulley (F) Fig. 132 and the motor pulley, loosen screw (D) Fig. 132, and carefully let the motor rest on the belts. E 10. Correct belt tension is when there is approximately 1/4" deflection in the center span of the pulleys, using light finger pressure. After tension is applied, tighten screw (D) Fig. 131. Fig. 132 37 PROTECTING CAST IRON TABLE FROM RUST To clean and protect cast iron tables from rust, you will need the following materials: 1 pushblock from a jointer, 1 sheet of medium Scotch-Brite™ Blending Hand Pad, 1 can of WD-40®, 1 can of degreaser, 1 can of TopCote® Aerosol. Apply the WD-40 and polish the table surface with the Scotch-Brite pad using the pushblock as a holddown. Degrease the table, then apply the TopCote® accordingly. OPERATIONS Common sawing operations include ripping and crosscutting plus a few other standard operations of a fundamental nature. As with all power machines, there is a certain amount of hazard involved with the operation and use of the machine. Using the machine with the respect and caution demanded as far as safety precautions are concerned, will considerably lessen the possibility of personal injury. However, if normal safety precautions are overlooked or completely ignored, personal injury to the operator can result. The following information describes the safe and proper method for performing the most common sawing operations. NOTE: THE USE OF ATTACHMENTS AND ACCESSORIES NOT RECOMMENDED BY DELTA MAY RESULT IN THE RISK OF INJURY TO PERSONS. CROSS-CUTTING Cross-cutting requires the use of the miter gage to position and guide the work. Place the work against the miter gage and advance both the gage and work toward the saw blade, as shown in Fig. 133. The miter gage may be used in either table slot. When bevel cutting (blade tilted), use the left miter gage slot so that the blade tilts away from the miter gage and your hands. Start the cut slowly and hold the work firmly against the miter gage and the table. One of the rules in running a saw is that you never hang onto or touch a free piece of work. Hold the supported piece, not the free piece that is cut off. The feed in cross-cutting continues until the work is cut in two, and the miter gage and work are pulled back to the starting point. Before pulling the work back, it is good practice to give the work a little sideways shift to move the work slightly away from the saw blade. Never pick up any short length of free work from the table while the saw is running. A smart operator never touches a cutoff piece unless it is at least a foot long. For added safety and convenience the miter gage can be fitted with an auxiliary wood-facing (C), as shown in Fig. 134, that should be at least 1 inch higher than the maximum depth of cut, and should extend out 12 inches or more to one side or the other depending on which miter gage slot is being used. This auxiliary wood-facing (C) can be fastened to the front of the miter gage by using two wood screws (A) through the holes provided in the miter gage body and into the wood-facing. Fig. 133 A C Fig. 134 WARNING: NEVER USE THE FENCE AS A CUTOFF GAGE WHEN CROSS-CUTTING. When cross-cutting a number of pieces to the same length, a block of wood (B), can be clamped to the fence and used as a cut-off gage as shown in Fig. 135. It is important that this block of wood always be positioned in front of the saw blade as shown. Once the cut-off length is determined, secure the fence and use the miter gage to feed the work into the cut. This block of wood allows the cut-off piece to move freely along the table surface without binding between the fence and the saw blade, thereby lessening the possibility of kickback and injury to the operator. B Fig. 135 38 RIPPING Ripping is the operation of making a lengthwise cut through a board, as shown in Fig. 136, and the rip fence (A) is used to position and guide the work. One edge of the work rides against the rip fence while the flat side of the board rests on the table. Since the work is pushed along the fence, it must have a straight edge and make solid contact with the table. The saw guard must be used. The guard has anti-kickback fingers to prevent wood kickback, and a splitter to prevent the wood kerf from closing and binding behind the blade. Start the motor and advance the work holding it down and against the fence. Never stand in the line of the saw cut when ripping. Hold the work with both hands and push it along the fence and into the saw blade as shown in Fig. 136. The work can then be fed through the saw blade with one or two hands. After the work is beyond the saw blade and anti-kickback fingers, the hand is removed from the work. When this is done the work will either stay on the table, tilt up slightly and be caught by the rear end of the guard or slide off the table to the floor. Alternately, the feed can continue to the end of the table, after which the work is lifted and brought back along the outside edge of the fence. The cut-off stock remains on the table and is not touched with the hands until the saw blade is stopped, unless it is a large piece allowing safe removal. When ripping boards longer than three feet, it is recommended that a work support be used at the rear of the saw to keep the workpiece from falling off the saw table. If the ripped work is less than 4 inches wide, a push stick should always be used to complete the feed, as shown in Fig. 137. The push stick can easily be made from scrap material as explained in the section “CONSTRUCTING A PUSH STICK.” When ripping material under 2 inches in width, a flat pushboard is a valuable accessory since ordinary type sticks may interfere with the blade guard. That flat pushboard can be made as shown in Fig. 79A. A Fig. 136 Fig. 137 USING ACCESSORY MOULDING CUTTERHEAD Moulding is cutting a shape on the edge or face of the work. Cutting mouldings with a moulding cutterhead in the circular saw is a fast, safe and clean operation. The many different knife shapes available make it possible for the operator to produce almost any kind of mouldings, such as various styles of corner moulds, picture frames, table edges, etc. The moulding head consists of a cutterhead in which can be mounted various shapes of steel knives, as shown in Fig. 138. Each of the three knives in a set is fitted into a groove in the cutterhead and securely clamped with a screw. The knife grooves should be kept free of sawdust, which would prevent the cutter from seating properly. Fig. 138 39 IMPORTANT: For certain cutting operations such as dadoing and moulding where you are not cutting completely through the workpiece, the blade guard and splitter assembly cannot be used. Simply loosen screws (G) and (H) Fig. 139. Lift up and swing blade guard and splitter assembly (W) Fig. 140, to the rear of the saw as shown in Fig. 140. CAUTION: Always return and fasten the blade guard and splitter assembly to its proper operating position for normal thru-sawing operations. The moulding cutterhead (A) Fig. 141, is assembled to the saw arbor as shown. Also, the accessory moulding cutterhead table insert (B), must be used in place of the standard table insert. H G Fig. 139 It is necessary when using the moulding cutterhead to add wood-facing (C) to the face of the rip fence, as shown in Fig. 142. The wood-facing is attached to the fence with two clamps, as shown. 3/4 inch stock is suitable for most work although an occasional job may require 1 inch facing. Position the wood-facing over the cutterhead with the cutterhead below the surface of the table. Turn the saw on and raise the cutterhead. The cutterhead will cut its own groove in the wood-facing. Fig. 142, shows a typical moulding operation. NEVER USE MOULDING CUTTERHEAD IN A BEVEL POSITION. W IMPORTANT: NEVER RUN THE STOCK BETWEEN THE FENCE AND THE MOULDING CUTTERHEAD AS IRREGULAR SHAPED WOOD WILL CAUSE KICKBACK. Fig. 140 When moulding end grain, the miter gage is used. The feed should be slowed up at the end of the cut to prevent splintering. In all cuts, attention should be given the grain, making the cut in the same direction as the grain whenever possible. ALWAYS INSTALL BLADE GUARD AFTER OPERATION IS COMPETE. USING ACCESSORY DADO HEAD IMPORTANT: THE BLADE GUARD AND SPLITTER ASSEMBLY CANNOT BE USED WHEN DADOING OR MOULDING AND MUST BE REMOVED OR SWUNG TO THE REAR OF THE SAW. Dadoing is cutting a rabbet or wide groove into the work. Most dado head sets are made up of two outside saws and four or five inside cutters, as shown in Fig. 143. Various combinations of saws and cutters are used to cut grooves from 1/8" to 13/16" for use in shelving, making joints, tenoning, grooving, etc. The cutters are heavily swaged and must be arranged so that this heavy portion falls in the gullets of the outside saws, as shown in Fig. 144. The saw and cutter overlap is shown in Fig. 145, (A) being the outside saw, (B) an inside cutter, and (C) a paper washer or washers which can be used as needed to control the exact width of groove. A 1/4" groove is cut by using the two outside saws. The teeth of the saws should be positioned so that the raker on one saw is beside the cutting teeth on the other saw. Fig. 141 C Fig. 142 40 Fig. 144 Fig. 143 The dado head set (D) Fig. 146, is assembled to the saw arbor as shown. IMPORTANT: The blade guard and splitter assembly cannot be used when dadoing and must be removed or swung to the rear of the saw as explained previously in this manual. Auxiliary jigs, fixtures, push sticks and feather boards should also be used. Also, the accessory dado head table insert (E) Fig. 146, must be used in place of the standard table insert. Fig. 147, shows a typical dado operation using the miter gage as a guide. B A C Fig. 145 WARNING: NEVER USE THE DADO HEAD IN A BEVEL POSITION. IMPORTANT: ALWAYS INSTALL BLADE GUARD AFTER OPERATION IS COMPLETED. Fig. 146 USING AUXILIARY WOOD FACING ON RIP FENCE It is necessary when performing special operations such as moulding to add wood facing (A) Fig. 147A, to one or both sides of the rip fence, as shown. The wood facing is attached to the fence with two clamps (B). 3/4 inch stock is suitable for most work although an occasional job may require 1 inch facing. A wood facing should be used when ripping thin material such as paneling to prevent the material from catching between the bottom of the rip fence and the saw table surface. Fig. 147 B A USING AUXILIARY WOOD FACING ON THE UNIFENCE Fig. 147A It is necessary when performing special operations such as when using the moulding cutterhead to add wood facing (A) Fig. 147B, to one side of the rip fence as shown. The wood facing is attached to the fence with wood screws through holes you drill in the fence. A suitable stock size for most work is 3/4", although an occasional job may require one inch facing. A 41 Fig. 147B CONSTRUCTING A FEATHERBOARD Fig. 148, illustrates dimensions for making a typical featherboard. The material which the featherboard is constructed of, should be a straight piece of wood that is free of knots and cracks. Featherboards are used to keep the work in contact with the fence and table and help prevent kickbacks. Clamp the featherboards to the fence and table so that the leading edge of the featherboards will support the workpiece until the cut is completed. Use featherboards for all non “thru-sawing” operations where the guard and spreader assembly must be removed (see Fig. 149). Always replace the guard and spreader assembly when the non thru-sawing operation is completed. Kerf should be about 1/4" apart.
