SAFETY
USE THE PROPER EXTENSION CORD.
If using an extension cord make sure it is in good condition first. 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 that
will result in a loss of power and overheating. TABLE 1, Page 8 shows the correct AWG size to use depending on cord
length and nameplate ampere rating. If in doubt, use the next heavier gage. The smaller the gage number, the heavier
the cord.
WEAR PROPER APPAREL.
Do not wear loose clothing, gloves, neckties, rings, bracelets, or other jewelry that may be caught in moving parts.
Non-slip footwear is recommended. Wear protective hair covering to contain long hair.
ALWAYS USE SAFETY GLASSES.
Safety glasses should always be worn when working around power tools. In addition, a face, dust mask or
respirator should be worn if a cutting operation is dusty. Everyday eyeglasses only have impact resistant
lenses and may not prevent eye injury; they are NOT safety glasses.
SECURE WORK.
Clamps or a vise should be used to hold work whenever practical. Keeping your hands free to operate a power tool is
safer.
DO NOT OVERREACH.
Keep proper footing and balance at all times by not overreaching.
MAINTAIN TOOLS WITH CARE.
Keep tools clean for the best and safest performance. Always follow maintenance instructions for lubricating, and
when changing accessories.
DISCONNECT TOOLS.
Power tools should always be disconnected before servicing or when changing accessories, such as blades, bits, cutters,
and the like.
REDUCE THE RISK OF UNINTENTIONAL STARTING.
on
Make sure the switch is in the OFF position before plugging in the saw.
USE RECOMMENDED ACCESSORIES.
Consult the owner's manual for recommended accessories. Using improper accessories may increase the risk of
personal or by-stander injury.
NEVER STAND ON THE TOOL.
Serious injury could occur if a power tool is tipped, or if a cutting tool is unintentionally contacted.
CHECK FOR DAMAGED PARTS.
Before using a power tool, check for damaged parts. A guard or any other part that is damaged should be carefully
checked to determine it would operate properly and perform its intended function. Always check moving parts for
proper alignment or binding. Check for broken parts and mountings and all other conditions that may affect the
operation of the power tool. A guard, or any damaged part, should be properly repaired or replaced.
DIRECTION OF FEED.
Always feed work into a blade or cutter against the direction of rotation. A blade or cutter should always be installed
such that rotation is in the direction of the arrow imprinted on the side of the blade or cutter.
NEVER LEAVE A TOOL RUNNING UNATTENDED – TURN POWER OFF.
Do not leave a tool until it comes to a complete stop. Always turn a power tool OFF when leaving the work area, or,
when a cut is finished.

SAFETY
Hazard Symbols:
ELECTRICAL SHOCK!
Never touch electrical wires or components while the motor is running. Exposed, frayed or worn electrical
motor wiring can be sources of electrical shock that could cause severe injury or burns.
ACCIDENTAL STARTS!
on
Make sure the switch is in the OFF position before plugging in the saw.
ROTATING OR MOVING PARTS!
Keep hands, feet, hair, and clothing away from all moving parts to prevent injury. Never operate a power tool
with covers, shrouds, or guards removed.
Sawing and drilling generates dust. Excessive airborne particles may cause irritation to eyes, skin and respiratory tract.
To avoid breathing impairment, always employ dust controls and protection suitable to the material being sawed or
drilled; See OSHA (29 CFR Part 1910.1200). Diamond Blades improperly used are dangerous. Comply with American
National Standards Institute Safety Code, B7.1 and, Occupational Safety and Health Act covering Speed, Safety Guards,
Flanges, Mounting Procedures, General Operating Rules, Handling, Storage and General Machine Conditions.
CALIFORNIA PROPOSITION 65 MESSAGE:
Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities contain
chemicals known [to the State of California] to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some
examples of these chemicals are:
• Lead, from lead-based paints
• Crystalline silica, from bricks and cement and other masonry products
• Arsenic and chromium, from chemically treated lumber
For further information, consult the following sources:
http://www.osha-slc.gov/sltc/silicarystalline/index.html
http://www.oehha.org/prop65/out_of_date/6022kLstA.html
Your risk from these exposures varies depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce your exposure to
these chemicals, work in a well-ventilated area, and work with approved safety equipment, such as those dust masks that
are specially designed to filter out microscopic particles.

SAFETY
ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS AND GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS:
In order to prevent potential electrical shock and injury, the following electrical safety precautions and symbols should
be followed at all times!
In case 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.
• Do not modify the plug provided – if it will not fit the outlet; have the proper outlet installed by a qualified
electrician
• Improper connections of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock. The
equipment-grounding conductor is the insulated conductor that has an outer surface that is green, with or
without yellow stripes. 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
• Use only 3-wire extension cords that have 3-prong grounding plugs and 3-pole receptacles that accept the
tool's plug
• Repair or replace a damaged or worn cord immediately
This tool is intended for use on a circuit that has an outlet that looks like the one shown in Sketch A of
Figure 1. The tool has a grounding plug that looks like the plug illustrated in Sketch A of Figure 1. A
temporary adapter, which looks like the adapter illustrated in sketches B and C,
may be used to connect this plug to a 2-pole receptacle as shown in
Sketch B, if a properly grounded outlet is not available. The temporary
adapter should be used only until a properly grounded outlet can be

FIGURE 1
To reduce the risk of electrocution, keep all connections dry and off the ground.
A Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) should be provided on the circuit(s) or outlet(s) to be used for
the Saw. Receptacles are available having built-in GFCI protections and may be used for this measure of
safety.
When using an extension cord, the GFCI should be installed closest to the power source, followed by the
extension cord and lastly, the saw.
The pump requires a GFCI. To reduce risk of electric shock when operating the saw with the pump
plugged into the 3-pole receptacle on the motor, connect the saw to a GFCI outlet. See the pump manual
and informational tags enclosed separately for all pump information.
Shock Hazard. For replacement, use only an identical MK pump, model PE1 part #151271.
NOTE: Do not run the pump dry. Also, be sure to disconnect and remove the pump when cutting dry.

SAFETY
When using the water pump plugged into the water pump receptacle, the saw must be plugged into a properly installed
and grounded GFCI outlet See Sketch A of Figure 2. If a GFCI outlet is not available, MK Diamond has available as an
accessory item, a plug-in GFCI that may be plugged into a properly installed and grounded 3-pole outlet. See Sketch A
of Figure 2.

FIGURE 2
To avoid the possibility of the appliance plug or receptacle getting wet, position the saw to one side of a
wall mounted receptacle. This will prevent water from dripping onto the receptacle or plug. A "drip loop,"
shown in Figure 3, should be arranged by the user to properly position the power cord relative to the power
source.
The "drip loop" is that part of the cord below the level of the receptacle, or the

Supporting
Tool
connector, if an extension cord is used. This method of positioning the cord
Surface
prevents the travel of water along the power cord and coming in contact with the
receptacle.
If the plug or receptacle gets wet, DO NOT unplug the cord. Disconnect the fuse
or circuit breaker that supplies power to the tool. Then unplug and examine for
Drip Loop
presence of water in the receptacle.
FIGURE 3
Use only extensions cords that are intended for outdoor use. These extension cords are identified by a
marking "Acceptable for use with outdoor appliances; store indoors while not in use." Use only extension
cords having an electrical rating not less than the rating of the product. Do not use damaged extension
cords. Examine extension cords before using and replace if damaged. Do not abuse extension cords and
do not yank on any cord to disconnect. Keep cords away from heat and sharp edges. Always disconnect
the extension cord from the receptacle before disconnection the product form the extension cord.
To reduce the risk of electrocution, keep all connections dry and off the ground. Do not touch the plug with
wet hands.
Use of undersize extension cords result in low voltage to the motor that can result in motor burnout and
premature failure. MK Diamond warns that equipment returned to us showing signs of being run in a low
voltage condition, through the use of undersized extension cords will be repaired or replaced totally at the
customers expense. There will be no warranty claim.
To choose the proper extension cord,
• Locate the length of extension cord needed in TABLE 1 below.
• Once the proper length is found, move down the column to obtain the correct AWG size required for that
length of extension cord.

LOCK OUT METHOD:
In order to help prevent accidental starting and to help make your workshop “Kidproof,”
this saw is provided with a means to deactivate the functioning of the motor switch. The
switch is equipped with a Lockout plate that can be used with a lock to prevent the
movement of the toggle switch. With the toggle switch unable to move the motor cannot
be turned on. Removing the lock reactivates the switch.

4. If using an extension power cord, made sure, the length and wire gauge correspond to the requirements
listed in TABLE 1 on page 9. An extension power cord that is too small in wire gauge (diameter), or too
long in length, will cause the motor to overheat and could cause premature failure.
5. Use an approved Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI)
6. Do not cover the motor vents as this could lead to motor overheating.

MAINTENANCE AND TROUBLESHOOTING
1. Blade Dressing:
Like most cutting instruments, a diamond blade performs best when it is dressed. Over time and use, diamonds on the
outer edge of the blade will become smoothed or “glazed” over. This will reduce grinding efficiency and may cause the
blade to “wander” or bend giving the illusion of an alignment problem. When this occurs, the blade will need to be
dressed. The diamond blade can be dressed using the MK Dressing Stick (part number 152972) and by following the
steps below.

THEORY
THEORY OF DIAMOND BLADES:
Diamond blades do not really cut; they grind the material through friction. Diamond crystals, often visible at the leading
edge and sides of the rim/segment, remove material by scratching out particles of hard, dense materials, or by knocking
out larger particles of loosely bonded abrasive material. This process eventually cracks or fractures the diamond particle,
breaking it down into smaller pieces. As a result, a diamond blade for cutting soft, abrasive material must have a hard
metal matrix composition to resist this erosion long enough for the exposed diamonds to be properly utilized.
Conversely, a blade for cutting a hard, non-abrasive material must have a soft bond to ensure that it will erode and
expose the diamonds embedded in the matrix. These simple principles are the foundation of “controlled bond erosion”.
Types of Cutting:
There are two basic types of cutting-Dry or Wet. The choice of which type of blade to use depends on:
• The requirements of the job
• The machine/tool utilizing the diamond blade
• The preference of the operator
In the case of DRY cutting, the overwhelming popularity and quantity of hand-held saws and the flexible nature of MK
Diamond blades to professionally handle most ceramic, masonry, stone and concrete materials, make the DRY cutting
blade a very attractive tool. When using a DRY blade, the user must be aware of distinct operating practices to ensure
optimum performance. DRY cutting blades require sufficient airflow about the blade to prevent overheating of the steel
core. This is best accomplished by shallow, intermittent cuts of the material with periods of “free-spinning” (for several
seconds) between each cut, to maximize the cooling process.
For WET cutting applications, MK has the exact blade to compliment both the material to be cut and the wet cutting
machine to be used. During cutting operations, liberal amounts of water act as a coolant to support the cutting
effectiveness and longevity of the WET blade. Additionally, using water adds to the overall safety of cutting operations
by keeping the dust signature down.

CALIFORNIA PROPOSITION 65 MESSAGE:
Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other
construction activities contain chemicals known [to the State of California] to cause
cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these
chemicals are:
• Lead, from lead-based paints
• Crystalline silica, from bricks and cement and other masonry products and
• Arsenic and chromium, from chemically treated lumber
Your risk from these exposures varies depending on how often you do this type of work. To
reduce your exposure to these chemicals, work in a well-ventilated area, and work with
approved safety equipment, such as those dust masks that are specially designed to filter out
microscopic particles.
