SUPPLY AND MOTOR SPECIFICATIONS
The AC motor used in this sew is a universal,
nonreversible type. See "MOTOR" in the "PRODUCT
SPECIFICATIONS" section on page 2.
To avoid electdcal hazards, fire hazards, or damage to
the tool, use proper circuit protection.Your saw is wired at
the factory for 120V operation. Connect to a 120V, 15
Amp circuit and use a 15 amp. time delay fuse or circuit
breaker. To avoid shock or fire, if power cord is worn or
cut, or damaged in any way, have it replaced
immediately.
t4. ALWAYS check the blade for cracks or damage
before operation. Replace a cracked or damaged
blade immediately.
15. NEVER use blades recommended for operation at

4. FUSES may "blow" or circuit breakers may tdp
frequently if:
a. MOTOR is overloaded - overloading can occur if
you feed too rapidly or make too many start/stops
in a short time.
b. LINE VOLTAGE is more than 10% above or below
the nameplate voltage rating. For heavy loads, the
voltage at motor terminals must equal the voltage
specified on the nameplate.
c. IMPROPER or dull saw blades are used.
5. Most motor troubles may be traced to loose or incorrect
connections, overload, low voltage or inadequate power
supply wiring. Always check the connections, the load
and supply circuit if the motor doesn't run well. Check
minimum gauge for the length of cord you are using on
the chart below.
ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS - cont'd
DOUBLE INSULATED
[]
The power tool is double insulated to provide a double
thickness of insulation between you and tool's electricel
system. All exposed metal parts are isolated from the
internal metat motor components with protecting insulation.
Replacement parts - When servicing use only identical
replacement parts.
Polarized plugs - This saw has a plug that looks like the
one shown below:
/
GUIDELINES FOR EXTENSION CORDS
Use a 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 cause
overheating. The table below shows the correct size to use
depending on cord length and nameplate ampere rating. If
in doubt, use the next heavier gauge. The smaller the
gauge number, the heavier the cord.
-i;222
To reduca the risk of electrical shock, this saw 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.
[A WARN,NG
]
Be sure your extension cord is properly wired and in
good condition.Always replace a damaged extension cord
or have it repaired by a qualified person before using it.
Protect your extension cords from sharp objects, excessive
heat and damp or wet areas.
Double insulationdoes not take the place of normal safety
precautions when operating this tool.
To avoid electrocution:
1. Use only identical replacement parts when servicing a
tool with double insulation. Servicing should be performed
by a qualified technician.
2. Do not use power tools in wet or damp locations or
expose them to rain or snow.
Use a separate electrical circuit for your tools. This
circuit must not be less than # 12 wire and should be
protected with a 15 Amp time delay fuse. Before
connecting the tool to the power line, make sure the switch
is in the OFF position and the electric current is rated the
same as the current stamped on the motor nameplate,
running at a lower voltage will damage the motor.
MOTOR SAFETY PROTECTION
IMPORTANT:
To avoid motor damage, the motor should be blown out or
vacuumed frequently to keep sawdust from interfering with
the motor ventilation.
1.CONNECT this saw to a 120V, 15 amp. circuit with a 15
amp. time delay fuse or circuit breaker. Using the wrong
size fuse can damage the motor.
2. If the motor won't start, release the trigger switch
immediately. UNPLUG THE SAW. Check the saw blade
to make sure it turns freely. If the blade is free, try to
start the sew again. If the motor still does not start, refer
to the "TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE"
3. If the tool suddenly stalls while cutting wood, release the
trigger switch, unplug the tool, and free the blade from
the wood. The saw may now be started and the cut
finished.

I
To avoid burns or other fire damage, never use the
miter saw near flammable liquids,vapors, or gases.
•
Plan ahead to protect your eyes, hands, face
and ears.
•
Know your miter saw.
Read and understand the Operator's Manual and labels
affixed to the tool. Leam its application and limitations
as well as the specific potential hazards peculiar to this
tool. To avoid injuryfrom accidental contact with moving
parts, don't do layout, assembly, or setup work on the
miter saw.
•
Avoid accidental starting
Make sure the switch is OFF before plugging the
miter saw into a power outlet.
PLANYOURWORK
•
Use the right tool. Don't force a tool or attachment
to do a job it was not designed to do. Use a
different tool for any workpiece that can't be held in
a solidly braced, fixed position.
•
•
•
CAUTION: This machine is not designed for cutting
ferrous metals (steel, iron, and iron-based metals.) Use
this miter saw to cut only wood, wood-like products, or
soft metals like aluminum. Other material may shatter,
bind the blade, or create other dangers. Remove all
nails that may be in the workpiece to prevent sparking
that could cause a fire.
Make sure there are no gaps between the
workpiece, fence and table that will let the
workpiece shift during the cut.
Keep the cut off piece free to move sideways after
it is cut off. Otherwise, it could get wedged against
the blade and thrown, possiblycausing injury.
Only the workpiece should be on the saw table.
Secure work. Use clamps or a vise to help hold
the work when it's practical
USE EXTRA CAUTION WITH LARGE OR ODD
SHAPED WORKPIECES.
•
DRESS FOR SAFETY
•
Any power tool can throw foreign objects into the eyes.
This can result in permanent eye damage. Everyday
eyeglasses have only impact resistant lenses and are
not safety glasses. Glasses or goggles not in
compliance with ANSI Z87.1 could seriously injure you
when they break.
•
Do not wear loose clothing, gloves, neckties or
jewelry (rings, watches). They can get caught and
draw you into moving parts.
•
Wear non-slip footwear.
•
Tie back long hair.
•
Roll long sleeves above the elbow.
•
Noise levels vary widely. To avoid possible hearing
damage, wear ear plugs when using any miter
saw.
•
For dusty operations, wear a dust mask along with
safety goggles.
•
•
INSPECT YOUR WORKPIECE
Make sure there are no nails or foreign objects in the
part of the workpiece being cut.
Plan your work to avoid small pieces that may bind,
or that are too small to clamp and get a solid grasp
Use extra supports (tables, sawhorses, blocks, etc.)
for workpieces large enough to tip.
Never use another person as a substitute for a
table extension, or as an additional supportfor a
workpiece that is longer or wider than the basic
miter saw table, or to help feed, support, or pull the
workpiece.
Do not use this sew to cut small pieces. If the
workpiece being cut would cause your hand or
fingers to be within 7-1/4 inches of the saw blade
the workpiece is too small. Keep hands and fingers
out of the "no hands zone" area marked on the
saws table.
When cutting odd shaped workpieces, plan your
work so it will not bind in the blade and cause
possible injury. Molding, for example, must lie fiat
or be held by a fixture or jig that will not let it move
when cut.
Properly support round material such as dowel
rods, or tubing, which have a tendency to roll when
cut, causing the blade to "bite".
To avoid injury,follow all applicable safety instructions,
when cutting non-ferrous metals:
•
Use only saw blades specificallyrecommended for
non-ferrous metal cutting.
•
Do not cut metal workpieces that must be hand
held. Clamp workpieces securely.
•
Cut non-ferrous metals only if you are under the
supervision of an experienced person.
on.
Plan the way you will grasp the workpieca from start to
finish. Avoid awkward operations and hand positions.
A sudden slip could cause your fingers or hand to move
into the blade,
DON'T OVER-REACH
WHEN SAW IS RUNNING
IAW,.N,NO
1
Keep good footing and balance. Keep your face and
body to one side, out of the line of a possible kickback.
NEVER stand in the line of the blade.
Don't allow familiarityfrom frequent use of your miter
saw to result in a careless mistake. A careless fraction
of a second is enough to cause a severe injury.
Never cut freehand:
•
Brace your workpiece firmly against the fence and
table stop so it will not rock or twist during the cut.
•
Make sure there is no debris between the
workpiece and the table or fence.
Before cutting, if the sew makes an unfamiliar noise or
vibrates, stop immediately. Tum the saw OFF Unplug
the sew. Do not restart until finding and correcting the
problem.
18
BODY AND HAND POSITION (FIG. U)
Proper positioningof your body and hands when
operating the miter saw will make cutting easier and
safer. Never place hands near the cutting area. Place
hand at least 7-1/4" away from the path of the blade.
Hold workplece firmly against the fence to prevent
movement toward the blade. Keep hands in position
until the trigger has been released and the blade has
completely stopped. Before making a cut, with the
power switch in the OFF position bring the saw blade
down to the workplece to see the cutting path of the
blade.
•
Keep children away. Keep all visitors a safe
distance from the miter saw. Make sure
bystanders are clear of the miter saw and
workplece.
•
Don't force the tool. It will do the job better and
safer at its designed rate. Feed the saw into
the workpiece slowlywith a firm downward
motion.
Before freeing jammed
TURNING THE SAW ON (FIG. V)
To reduce the likelihoodof accidental starting, a
thumb activated lock-OFF switch is located on top of
the switch handle. The lock-OFF switch (1) must be
pushed forward before the trigger switch (2) can be
activated and the miter saw started.

CUTTING BOWED MATERIAL (Fig. AA)
A bowed workpiece must be positionedagainst
the fence before cutting. Do not position
workpiece incorrectly or try to cut the
workpiece without the support of the fence,
This will cause the blade to bind and could
result in personal injury.
Fig. AA
IA WAR.I.GI
When making multiple or repetitive cuts that result in
cot-off pieces of one inch or less, it is possible for the
saw blade to catch the cut-off piece and throw it out of
the saw or into the blade guard and housing, possibly
causing damage or injury.To minimize this risk, turn off
the machine, wait until the blade comes to a complete
stop, unplug the unit & remove the cut pieces.
AUXlLARY WOOD FENCE (Fig. CC)
Holes are provided in the saw fence to attach an
auxiliary wood fence (this provides additionaldepth of
cut). This fence should be constructed of straight
auxiliary wood approximately 3/4 inch thick by 2-1/2
inches high by 18-1/2 inches long.Attach the wood
fence securely and make a full depth cut to make a
blade slot. Check for interference between the wood
fence and the lower blade guard. Adjust if necessary.
WORKPIECE SUPPORT (Fig. BB)
Long pieces need extra support. The support
should be placed under the workpiece. Keep your
hand holdingthe workpiece positioned 7-1/4" or
more away from the blade. The support must let
the workpiece lay flat on the work table during the
cutting operation.
NOTE: When mounted on a fiat surface, the miter
saw table is 3-1/8 inches high.

Base moldings and many other moldings can be cut on
a compound miter saw. The setup of the saw depends
on molding characteristics and applications, as shown.
Perform practice cuts on scrap material to achieve best
results:
1.Always make sure moldings rest firmly against the
fence and table. Use hold-down or C-clamps,
whenever possible, and place tape on the area being
clamped to avoid marks.
2. Reduce splinteringby taping the cut area prior to
making the cut. Mark the cut line directly on the tape.
3. Splinteringtypically happens due to an incorrect
blade application or use of thin kerf blades.

CUTTING CROWN MOULDING (Fig. GG, HH)
Your compound miter saw is suited for the difficult task of
cutting crown molding. To fit properly,crown molding must
be compound-mitered with extreme accuracy. The two
surfaces on a piece of crown molding that fit fiat against
the ceiling and wall are at angles that, when added
together, equal exactly 90".

Most crown moldings have a top rear angle (the section
that fits flat against the ceiling) of 52° and a bottom rear
angle (the section that fits fiat against the wall) of 38 °.
In order to accurately cut crown molding for a 90 ° inside or
outside corner, lay the molding with its broad back surface
fiat on the saw table.
When setting the bevel and miter angles for compound
miters, keep in mind that the angles for crown molding are
very precise and difficultto set exactly. Since it is very
easy for these angles to shift slightly,all settings should be
tested on scrap molding.

LOWER BLADE GUARD
MAINTENANCE
Do not use the saw without the lower blade guard, The
lower blade guard is attached to the saw for your
protection. Should the lower guard become damaged,
do not use the saw until the damaged guard has been
replaced, Develop a regular check to make sure the
lower guard is working properly.Clean the lower guard
of any dust or buildup with a damp cloth.
DANGER
Never put lubricants on the blade while it is spinning.
IAWARNING
I
To avoid fire or toxic reaction, never use gasoline,
naphtha acetone, lacquer thinner or similar highly
volatile solvents to clean the miter saw.
CAUTION: Do not use solvents on the guard. They
could make the plastic "cloudy"and brittle.
IAWAR.,.G
I
J,WARN,NG
J
To avoid injuryfrom unexpected starting or electrical
shock, unplug the power cord before working on the
saw,
When cleaning the lower guard, unplug the saw from
the power source receptacle to avoid unexpected
startup.
IA W NINGI
SAWDUST
Periodically,sawdust will accumulate under the work
table and base. This could cause difficultyin the
movement of the worktable when setting up a miter cut.
Frequently blow out or vacuum up the sawdust.
For your safety, this saw is double-insulated. To avoid
electrical shock, fire or injury,use only parts identicalto
those identified in the parts list. Reassemble exactly as
the original assembly to avoid electrical shock.
REPLACING CARBON BRUSHES (FIG. II)
The carbon brushes furnished will last approximately 50
hours of runningtime, or 10,000 ON/OFF cycles.
Replace both carbon brushes when either has less than
1/4" length of carbon remaining, or if the spring or wire
is damaged or burned. To inspect or replace brushes,
first unplug the saw. Then remove the black plastic cap
(1) on the side of the motor (2). Remove the cap
cautiously, because it is spring-loaded. Then pull out
the brush and replace. Replace the other side in the
same manner. To reassemble, reverse the procedure.
The ears on the metal end of the assembly go in the
same hole the carbon part fits into. Tighten the cap
snugly, but do not overtighten.
NOTE: To reinstall the same brushes, first make sure
the brushes go back in the way they came out. This will
avoid a break-in period.
Fig. II
14WARN,NG
I
If blowing sawdust, wear proper eye protection to keep
debris from entering eyes.
LUBRICATION
All the motor bearings in this tool are lubricated with a
sufficient amount of high grade lubricantfor the life of
the unit under normal operating conditions; therefore,
no further lubrication is required.
Lubricate the Following as Required:
Chop pivoP.,light machine oil or aerosol will penetrate
from the ends of the junction points.A qualified service
technician can remove the pivot upstop to relieve
tension, and the 2 metric set screws holdingthe shaft,
in order to drive the shaft about 3/4" right. Exposed
surfaces are lubricated with automotive type oil.
Central pivot of plastic guard: Use light household oil
(sewing machine oil ) on metal-to-metal or
metal-to-plastic guard contact areas as required for
smooth, quiet operation. Avoid excessive oil, to which
sawdust will cling.
2
Link: (which actuates the lower guard movement) may
be oiled at the rear pivot, greased at ball bearing
contact, and oiled where the link actuates the acetyl
roller of the lower guard, if the down chop motion is
hard to start.
