INSTRUCTION MANUAL 10" Power Miter Saw 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. Technical Service Manager Delta Machinery 4825 Highway 45 North Jackson, TN 38305 (IN CANADA: 505 SOUTHGATE DRIVE, GUELPH, ONTARIO N1H 6M7) WARNING: FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE RULES MAY RESULT IN SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY 1.

Four holes are provided, two of which are shown at (A) Fig. 8, for fastening the saw to a supporting surface. When frequently moving the saw from place to place we suggest that the saw be mounted to a 3/4" piece of plywood. The saw can then be easily moved from place to place and the plywood clamped to the supporting surface using “C” clamps. A Fig. 8 5 B 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. GROUNDED OUTLET BOX GROUNDED OUTLET BOX CURRENT CARRYING PRONGS GROUNDING MEANS ADAPTER GROUNDING BLADE IS LONGEST OF THE 3 BLADES Fig. 9 Fig. 10 6 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. Fig. 11 OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS FOREWORD Delta Model 36-070 is a 10" Power Miter Saw designed to cut wood. Cross cutting and miter cutting are easy and accurate. It can crosscut up to 2-1/4" x 5-3/4", miter at 45 both left and right 2-1/4" x 4-1/8".

Then tighten two screws (C). C B Fig. 20 ADJUSTING FENCE 90 DEGREES TO BLADE A A If the fence (A) Fig. 21, is ever removed from the saw it should be adjusted so it is 90 degrees to the blade when it is replaced, as follows: 1. DISCONNECT THE SAW FROM THE POWER SOURCE. 2. This adjustment should be made only after the blade has been adjusted parallel to table opening, as previously explained. B Fig. 21 3. Using a square (B) Fig. 21, place one end of the square against the fence (A) and the other end against the slot in the table as shown. C C 4. If an adjustment is necessary, loosen the two screws (C) Fig. 22, and adjust fence 90 degrees to the table opening. Then tighten the two screws (C). Fig. 22 A B ADJUSTING POINTER If it becomes necessary to adjust the pointer (A) Fig. 23, simply loosen screw (B), adjust the pointer accordingly and tighten screw (B). Fig. 23 10 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. A Fig. 25 11 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. 32 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. FILLER BLOCK FOR CROWN MOULDING IF JOINT IS TO HAVE MITERED CORNER FIT OR COPE CUT FILLER BLOCK FOR CROWN MOULDING IF JOINT IS TO HAVE MITERED CORNER FIT OR COPE CUT Fig. 36 Fig. 38 Fig. 37 Fig. 39 14 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. A A 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. E D B C Fig. 42 Fig. 41 15 MAINTENANCE CHANGING THE BLADE A WARNING: USE ONLY CROSS-CUTTING SAW BLADES. WHEN USING CARBIDE TIPPED BLADES, MAKE SURE THEY HAVE A NEGATIVE HOOK ANGLE. DO NOT USE BLADES WITH DEEP GULLETS AS THEY CAN DEFLECT AND CONTACT THE GUARD. USE ONLY 10" DIAMETER SAW BLADES WHICH ARE RATED FOR 6000 RPM OR HIGHER AND HAVE 5/8" DIAMETER ARBOR HOLES. 1. DISCONNECT POWER SOURCE. THE MACHINE FROM B THE Fig. 43 2. Loosen screw (A) Fig. 43, and rotate cover (B) to the rear as shown in Fig. 44. B 3. To remove the saw blade, insert hex wrench (C) Fig. 45, into the hex hole located on the rear end of the arbor shaft, to keep the shaft from turning. 4. Using wrench (D) Fig. 46, loosen arbor screw (E) by turning it clockwise 5. Remove arbor screw (E) Fig. 46, outside blade flange (F) and saw blade (G) from saw arbor. Fig. 44 6. Assemble new saw blade MAKING CERTAIN TEETH OF SAW BLADE ARE POINTING DOWN AT THE FRONT and re-assemble outside blade flange (F) Fig. 46, and arbor screw (E) by turning it counterclockwise using wrench (D) Fig. 46. At the same time use hex wrench (C) Fig. 45, to keep the arbor from turning. C 7. Replace screw and cover that was rotated to the rear in STEP 2.
