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.

CONNECTING SAW TO POWER SOURCE
POWER CONNECTIONS
A separate electrical circuit should be used for your tools. This circuit should not be less than #12 wire and should be
protected with a 20 Amp time lag fuse. If an extension cord is used, use only 3-wire extension cords which have 3prong grounding type plugs and 3-pole receptacles which accept the tool’s plug. Before connecting the motor to the
power line, make sure the switch is in the “OFF” position and be sure that the electric current is of the same characteristics as indicated on the tool. All line connections should make good contact. Running on low voltage will damage the motor.
MOTOR SPECIFICATIONS
Your miter saw is wired for 110-120 volt, 60 HZ alternating current. Before connecting the miter saw to the power
source, make sure the switch is in the “OFF” position. The motor provides a no-load speed of 5200 RPM.
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: THIS TOOL MUST BE GROUNDED WHILE IN USE TO PROTECT THE OPERATOR FROM
ELECTRIC SHOCK.
Use only 3-wire extension cords that have 3-prong
grounding type plugs and 3-hole receptacles that accept
the tool’s plug, as shown in Fig. 9.
1. All grounded, cord-connected tools: In the event of a
malfunction or breakdown, grounding provides a path of
least resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of
electric shock. This tool is equipped with an electric cord
having an equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into a matching outlet
that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with
all local codes and ordinances.
Repair or replace damaged or worn cord immediately.
2. Grounded, cord-connected tools intended for use on
a supply circuit having a nominal rating less than 150
volts: This tool is intended for use on a normal 120-volt
circuit and has a grounded plug that looks like the plug
illustrated in Fig. 9.
If a properly grounded outlet is not available, a temporary
adapter, shown in Fig. 10, may be used for connecting the
3-prong grounding type plug to a 2-prong receptacle. The
temporary adapter should be used only until a properly
grounded outlet can be installed by a qualified electrician.
The green colored rigid ear, lug, or the like extending from
the adapter must be connected to a permanent ground
such as a properly grounded outlet box cover. Whenever
the adapter is used, it must be held in place with a metal
screw.
NOTE: In Canada, the use of a temporary adapter is not
permitted by the Canadian Electric Code.
Do not modify the plug provided - if it will not fit the outlet,
have the proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in risk of electric shock. The conductor
with insulation having an outer surface that is green with
or without yellow stripes is the equipment-grounding conductor. If repair or replacement of the electric cord or plug
is necessary, do not connect the equipment grounding
conductor to a live terminal.
Check with a qualified electrician or service personnel if
the grounding instructions are not completely understood,
or if in doubt as to whether the tool is properly grounded.
WARNING: IN ALL CASES, MAKE CERTAIN THE
RECEPTACLE IN QUESTION IS PROPERLY
GROUNDED. IF YOU ARE NOT SURE HAVE A CERTIFIED ELECTRICIAN CHECK THE RECEPTACLE.

EXTENSION CORDS
RECOMMENDED EXTENSION CORD SIZES FOR USE
WITH STATIONARY ELECTRIC TOOLS
Use proper extension cords. Make sure your extension
cord is in good condition and is a 3-wire extension cord
which has a 3-prong grounding type plug and a 3-pole
receptacle which will accept the tool’s plug. When using
an extension cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to
carry the current of the saw. An undersized cord will
cause a drop in line voltage, resulting in loss of power
and overheating. Fig. 11, shows the correct gauge to
use depending on the cord length. If in doubt, use the
next heavier gauge. The smaller the gauge number, the
heavier the cord.

TYPICAL OPERATIONS AND HELPFUL HINTS
1. Before cutting, make certain the table is set at the correct angle and firmly locked in place.
2. Before cutting, determine that the workpiece is the right size for the saw.
3. Place the workpiece on the table and hold it firmly against the fence.
4. For best results cut at a slow, even cutting rate.
5. If the workpiece you are cutting causes your hand to be within 4 inches of the saw blade, the workpiece must be
clamped to the fence before cutting.
6. Never attempt any freehand cutting (wood that is not held firmly against the fence and table).
USING ACCESSORY 36-221 WORK CLAMP
A
1. An ideal accessory for use with your miter saw is the
36-221 Work Clamp, shown at (A) Fig. 24.
Fig. 24
2. Two holes (B) Fig. 25, are provided in the base of the
miter saw enabling you to use the clamp (A) on either the
right or left hand side of the saw blade.
B
WARNING: Keep hands out of path of saw blade.
If the workpiece you are cutting would cause your
hand to be within 4 inches of the saw blade, the
workpiece should be clamped in place before making cut.

GENERAL CUTTING OPERATIONS
1. Your miter saw has the capacity to cut standard 2 x
4’s laying flat or on edge, at the 45 degree right and left
miter angles as shown in Figs. 26 and 27.
Fig. 26
Fig. 27
2. A standard 2 x 6 can easily be cut in the 90 degree
straight cut-off position in one pass, as shown in Fig. 28.
Fig. 28
3. Cutting a standard 4 x 4 is easily accomplished with
your miter saw in one pass, as shown in Fig. 29.
Fig. 29
12
4. Cutting various sizes of plastic pipe is an easy job
with the miter saw, as shown in Fig. 30.
CUTTING ALUMINUM
Aluminum extrusions such as used for making aluminum
screens and storm windows can easily be cut with your
miter saw. When cutting aluminum extrusions, or other
sections that can be cut with a saw blade and are within the capacity of the machine, position the material so
the blade is cutting through the smallest cross-section,
as shown in Fig. 31. The wrong way to cut aluminum
angles is illustrated in Fig. 32. Be sure to apply a stick
wax (similar to Johnson’s stick wax #140) to the blade
before cutting any aluminum stock. This stick wax is
available at most industrial mill supply houses. The stick
wax provides proper lubrication and keeps chips from
adhering to the blade. NEVER APPLY A LUBRICANT
TO THE BLADE WHILE THE MACHINE IS RUNNING.
Fig. 30
Fig. 31
CUTTING BOWED MATERIAL
When cutting flat pieces, first check to see if the material is bowed. If it is, make sure the material is positioned
on the table as shown in Fig. 33.
If the material is positioned the wrong way, as shown in
Fig. 34, the workpiece will pinch the blade near the completion of the cut.

Fig. 33
Fig. 34
13
CUTTING CROWN MOULDINGS
1. There are several methods that can be used to cut
crown mouldings on the miter saw. The method shown
in Fig. 35, illustrates the contact surfaces (the surfaces
that contact the wall and ceiling) of the crown moulding
held firmly against the fence and table of the miter saw.
This method is acceptable when making a small number
of cuts but would not be practical for a production application as it may be difficult to firmly hold the work in this
position. Also, this method means that the crown
moulding must be positioned on the table in the upside
down position.
2. When a large number of repetitive cuts of crown
moulding are required we suggest the use of filler
blocks, as shown in Fig. 36 through Fig. 39. The majority of crown mouldings have contact surfaces at 52 and
38 degrees to the rear surface of the moulding and these
angles must be utilized when jointing the face of the filler
block. For crown mouldings with different angles, appropriate filler blocks can be produced.
Fig. 35
3. Fig. 36 and Fig. 37, illustrate the filler block fastened
to the miter saw fence with the face of the filler block
extending outward from the top of the fence and down
to the surface of the table. When the filler block is positioned in this manner, the crown moulding must be positioned on the table in the upside down position. This
means that the surface of moulding that contacts the
ceiling is against the table.
4. Fig. 38 and Fig. 39, illustrate the filler block fastened
to the miter saw fence with the face of the filler block
extending inward toward the fence from the top to the
bottom. When the filler block is positioned in this manner, the crown moulding is placed on the table in the
same position as it would be when nailed between the
ceiling and wall.

5. Fasten the filler blocks to the fence using wood
screws (A) through the two holes provided on each
fence half, as shown in Fig. 40. This enables you to easily remove the filler blocks when not in use and quickly
reassemble them to the fence when needed.

Fig. 40
6. Fig. 41, illustrates the miter saw arm in the 45 degree right miter position and the filler blocks fastened to the fence
so that the moulding will be in the same position as it would be when nailed between the ceiling and wall.
When making this cut the moulding (B) on the left of the saw blade will be for an outside corner and the moulding (C)
on the right of the saw blade will be for an inside corner.
To cut the mating pieces for mouldings (B) and (C) Fig. 41, simply rotate the miter saw arm to the 45 degree left miter
position and make the cut, as shown in Fig. 42. In this case the moulding (D) on the left of the saw blade will be for an
inside corner and the moulding (E) on the right of the saw blade will be for an outside corner.

CAUTION: BEFORE INSPECTING THE BRUSHES,
DISCONNECT THE MACHINE FROM THE POWER
SOURCE.

Brush life varies. It depends on the load on the motor.
Check the brushes after the first 50 hours of use for a
new machine or after a new set of brushes has been
installed. After the first check, examine them after about
10 hours of use until such time that replacement is necessary. To inspect the brushes, proceed as follows:

cover (B).

brushes. If the brushes are found serviceable after
removing, reinstall them in the same position as
