WARNING" Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities contains chemicals known 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.

DOUBLE
INSULATION
Double insulation is a concept in safety in electric power tools,
which eliminates the need for the usual three-wire grounded
power cord. All exposed metal parts are isolated from the
internal metal motor components with protecting insulation.
Double insulated tools do not need to be grounded.
_
WARNING: The double insulated system is
intended to protect the user from shock resulting
from a break in the tool's internal insulation. Observe
all normal safety precautions to avoid electrical
shock.
Servicing of a tool with double insulation requires extreme
care and knowledge of the system and should be performed
only by a qualified service technician. For service, we suggest you return the tool to your nearest authorized service
center for repair. Always use original factory replacement
parts when servicing.
ELECTRICAL
EXTENSION
When using a power tool at a considerable distance from
a power source, be sure to use an extension cord that has
the capacity to handle the current the tool will draw. An
undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage, resulting
in overheating and loss of power. Use the chart to determine the minimum wire size required in an extension cord.
Only round jacketed cords listed by Underwriter's Laboratories (UL) should be used.
When working outdoors with a tool, use an extension
cord that is designed for outside use. This type of cord is
designated with "WA" on the cord's jacket.
Before using any extension cord, inspect it for loose or
exposed wires and cut or worn insulation.

The work clamp provides greater control by clamping the
workpiece to the fence or the saw table. It also prevents the
workpiece from creeping toward the saw blade. This is very
helpful when cutting compound miters.
A
Depending on the cutting operation and the size of the
workpiece, it may be necessary to use a C-clamp instead
of the work clamp to secure the workpiece prior to making
the cut.
_
WARNING:
In some operations, the work clamp
assembly may interfere with the operation of the
blade guard assembly. Always make sure there is
no interference with the blade guard prior to beginning any cutting operation to reduce the risk of
serious personal injury.
•
•
_
A 10 in. blade is the maximum blade
capacity of your saw. Never use a blade that is too
thick to allow outer blade washer to engage with
the flats on the spindle. Larger blades will come in
contact with the blade guards, while thicker blades
will prevent the blade screw from securing the blade
on the spindle. Either of these situations could result
in a serious accident and can cause serious personal
injury.
Unplug your saw.
_hb WARNING:
Failure to unplug your saw could result
in accidental starting causing possible serious
personal injury.
Follow these directions to install the work clamp:
•
WARNING:
Place the shaft of the work clamp in either hole on the
saw table base.
Rotate the knob on the work clamp to move it in or out
as needed.
WARNING:
When using any clamp with a stop
block, install the clamp on the same side as the stop
block. This will eliminate the possibility of trapping
the workpiece, resulting in the saw blade and
workpiece kicking up. Failure to heed this warning
can result in serious personal injury.
•
Loosen the phillips screw on the blade bolt cover until
blade bolt cover can be raised. See Figures 12 and 13.
•
Gently raise the lower blade guard bracket, releasing
lower blade guard from notch so that lower blade
guard and blade bolt cover can be rotated up and back
to expose the blade bolt. See Figures 12 and 13.
•
Depress the spindle lock button and rotate the blade
bolt until the spindle locks. See Figure 13.
Using the blade wrench provided, loosen and remove
the blade bolt.
NOTE: The blade bolt has left hand threads. Turn blade

Your compound miter saw has been adjusted at the factory for making very accurate cuts. However, some of the
components might have moved out of alignment during
shipping. Also, over a period of time, readjustment will
probably become necessary due to wear. After unpacking
your saw, check the following adjustments before you begin using saw. Make any readjustments that are necessary
and periodically check the parts alignment to make sure
that your saw is cutting accurately.

COMPOUND
MITER CUT
A compound miter cut is a cut made using a miter angle
and a bevel angle at the same time. This type of cut is
used to make picture frames, cut molding, make boxes
with sloping sides, and for certain roof framing cuts.
To make this type of cut the control arm on the miter table
must be rotated to the correct angle and the saw arm
must be tilted to the correct bevel angle. Care should always be taken when making compound miter setups due
to the interaction of the two angle settings.
Adjustments of miter and bevel settings are interdependent with one another. Each time you adjust the miter
setting you change the effect of the bevel setting. Also,
each time you adjust the bevel setting you change the effect of the miter setting.
It may take several settings to obtain the desired cut. The
first angle setting should be checked after setting the
second angle, since adjusting the second angle affects
the first.

SETTINGS FOR POPULAR STRUCTURES

CUTTING
CROWN
MOLDING
When setting the bevel and miter angles for compound
miters, remember that the settings are interdependent;
changing one angle changes the other angle as well.
Your compound miter saw does an excellent job of cutting
crown molding. In general, compound miter saws do a
better job of cutting crown molding than any other tool
made.
Keep in mind that the angles for crown moldings are very
precise and difficult to set. Since it is very easy for these
angles to shift, all settings should first be tested on scrap
molding. Also most walls do not have angles of exactly
90, therefore, you will need to fine tune your settings.
In order to fit properly, crown molding must be compound
mitered with extreme accuracy.
The two contact surfaces on a piece of crown molding
that fit flat against the ceiling and the wall of a room are at
angles that, when added together, equal exactly 90. Most
crown molding has a top rear angle (the section that fits
flat against the ceiling) of 52 and a bottom rear angle (the
section that fits flat against the wall) of 38 °.
LAYING MOLDING
MITER TABLE
When cutting crown molding by this method the bevel
angle should be set at 33.85 The miter angle should be
set at 31.62 either right or left, depending on the desired
cut for the application. See the chart below for correct
angle settings and correct positioning of crown molding
on miter table.
FLAT ON THE
The settings in the chart below can be used for cutting All
Standard (U.S.) crown molding with 52 ° and 38 angles.
The crown molding is placed flat on the miter table using
the compound features of your miter saw.
See Figure 32.
To use this method for accurately cutting crown molding
for a 90 inside or outside corner, lay the molding with its
broad back surface flat on the miter table and against the
fence.

CUTTING
WARPED
MATERIAL
When cutting wide workpieces such as a 2 in. x 6 in.,
boards should be clamped with a C-clamp as shown in
figure 35.
See Figures 33 and 34.
When cutting warped material, always make sure it is
positioned on the miter table with the convex side against
the fence as shown in figure 33.
If the warped material is positioned the wrong way as
shown in figure 34, it will pinch the blade near the completion of the cut.

•
Your compound miter saw should bevel easily by loosening the bevel lock knob and tilting the saw arm to the
left.
•
If movement is tight or if there is play in the pivot, have
saw repaired by a qualified service technician at your
nearest Sears store or repair center to avoid risk of
personal injury.
DEPTH
STOP
See Figure 37,
The depth stop limits the blade's downward travel. It
allows the blade to go below the miter table enough to
maintain full cutting capacities. The depth stop positions
the blade 1/4 in. from the miter table support.
LOCKNUT(S)
NOTE: The miter table support is located inside miter
table.
The depth stop is factory set to provide maximum cutting capacity for the 10 in. saw blade provided with your
saw. Therefore, the saw blade provided should never need
adjustments.
\
However, when the diameter of the blade has been reduced due to sharpening, it may be necessary to adjust
the depth stop to provide maximum cutting capacity. Also,
when a new blade is installed, it is necessary to check the
clearance of the blade to the miter table support before
starting the saw. Make adjustments if needed.
Fig. 36
PIVOT ADJUSTMENTS
NOTE: These adjustments were made at the factory and
normally do not require readjustment.

•
The saw arm should rise completely to the up position

ASSEMBLY
Fig. 38
It has been found that electric tools are subject to accelerated wear and possible premature failure when they are
used on fiberglass boats, sports cars, wallboard, spackling compounds, or plaster. The chips and grindings from
these materials are highly abrasive to electric tool parts
such as bearings, brushes, commutators, etc. Consequently, it is not recommended that this tool be used for
extended work on any fiberglass material, wallboard,
spackling compounds, or plaster. During any use on these
materials it is extremely important that the tool is cleaned
frequently by blowing with an air jet.
BRUSH
REPLACEMENT
See Figure 38.
Your saw has externally accessible brush assemblies that
should be periodically checked for wear.
Proceed as follows
•
All of the bearings in this tool are lubricated with a sufficient amount of high grade lubricant for the life of the unit
under normal operating conditions. Therefore, no further
lubrication is required.
WARNING:
To ensure safety and reliability, all
repairs -- with the exception of the externally
accessible brushes -- should be performed by a
qualified service technician at a Sears store to avoid
risk of personal injury.
31
when replacement is required:
Unplug your saw.
_
WARNING:
Failure to unplug your saw could result
in accidental starting causing serious injury.
•
Remove brush cap with a screwdriver. Brush assembly
is spring loaded and will pop out when you remove
brush cap.
•
Remove brush assembly.
•
Check for wear. Replace both brushes when either has
less than 1/4 in. length of carbon remaining, Do not
replace one side without replacing the other.
•
Reassemble using new brush assemblies. Make sure
curvature of brush matches curvature of motor and
that brush moves freely in brush tube,
•
Make sure brush cap is oriented correctly (straight) and
replace.
•
Tighten brush cap securely, Do not overtighten.
