DOUBLE INSULATED
The power tool is double insulated to
provide a double thickness of insulation
between you and tool’s electrical
system. All exposed metal parts are
isolated from the internal metal motor
components with protecting insulation.
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 120 V circuit.
This circuit must not be less than a
#18 wire with a 9 A time lag fuse.
NOTE: When using an extension
cord on a circuit with a #18 wire, the
extension cord must not exceed 25
feet in length.
2. If the motor will not start, release
the trigger switch immediately.
UNPLUG THE SAW. Check the saw

now be started and the cut finished.
4. FUSES may “blow” or circuit
breakers may trip 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.
excessive heat and damp or wet areas.

● 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.
KEEP YOUR WORK AREA CLEAN
Cluttered areas and benches invite
accidents.
!
WARNING
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. Learn
its application and limitations as well
as the specific potential hazards
peculiar to this tool. To avoid injury
from accidental contact with moving
parts, do not do layout, assembly, or
setup work on the miter saw while

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 on. Plan
the way you will grasp the workpiece
from start to finish. Avoid awkward
operations and hand positions.
PLAN YOUR WORK
● Use the right tool. Do not 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.
27
A sudden slip could cause your fingers
or hand to move into the blade.
“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 flat 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”.
DO NOT OVER-REACH
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.
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.
● Make sure there are no gaps
between the workpiece, fence and
table that will let the workpiece shift
after it is 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 violently.
● Only the workpiece should be on the
saws table.
● Secure work. Use clamps or a vise
to help hold the work when it is
practical.
! WARNING
To avoid injury, follow all applicable
safety instructions, when cutting
non-ferrous metals:
● Use only saw blades specifically
recommended 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 and the dust
bag has been removed from the
saw.
USE EXTRA CAUTION WITH LARGE
OR ODD SHAPED WORKPIECES.
● 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 support for 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 saw to cut small
pieces. If the workpiece being cut
would cause your hand or fingers
to be within 6-3/4 inches of the saw
blade the workpiece is too small.
Keep hands and fingers out of the

To Slide Cut Wide Boards (Fig. AA)
1. Unlock the carriage lock handle
(1) and allow the cutting head
assembly to move freely.
2. Set both the desired bevel angle
and/or the miter angle and lock into
position.
3. Use a hold down clamp to secure
the workpiece.
4. Grasp and pull forward the switch
handle (2) until the center of the
saw blade is over the front of the
workpiece (3).
5. Engage the trigger to turn the saw
on.
6. When the saw reaches full speed,
push the switch handle down,
slowly, cutting through the leading
edge of the workpiece.
7. Slowly move the switch handle
toward the fence, completing the
cut.
8. Release the trigger and allow
the blade to stop spinning before
allowing the cutting head to raise.
CUTTING BOWED MATERIAL (FIG.
BB)
!
WARNING
To avoid injury from materials being
thrown, always unplug the saw
to avoid accidental starting and
remove small pieces of material
from the table cavity.
The table insert may be removed for
this purpose, but always reattach table
insert prior to performing a cutting
operation.
A bowed workpiece must be positioned
against the fence and secured with
a clamping device as shown 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.

table so the inside tip of the blade
is positioned on the line. Use a
hold down clamp to secure the
workpiece.
2. Lower the cutting head so the tip of
the blade touches the top surface
workpiece at the marked line.
3. While holding the upper arm in

it touches the stop plate (1).
4. Cut two parallel grooves as shown
below.

3-1/4 in.
AUXILIARY WOOD FENCE (FIG. EE)
When making multiple or repetitive cuts
that result in cut-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 an auxiliary
wood fence can be mounted to your
saw. Holes are provided in the saw
fence to attach an auxiliary wood fence
(this provides additional depth of cut).
This fence should be constructed of
straight auxiliary wood approximately
3/4 in. thick by 1-1/2 in. high by 16 in.
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. DD)
Long pieces need extra support. The
support should be placed under the
workpiece. Keep your hand holding the
workpiece positioned 6-3/4 inches 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 flat
surface, the saw table is 3-1/4 inches
high.

CUTTING BASE MOLDING (FIG. FF)
Base moldings and many other
moldings can be cut on a compound
miter saw. The setup of the saw
depends on molding characteristics
and application, as shown. Perform
practice cuts on scrap material to
achieve best results:
1. Always make sure moldings rest
firmly against fence and table. Use
hold-down, crown molding vise
or C-clamps, whenever possible,
and place tape on the area being
clamped to avoid marks.
2. Reduce splintering by taping the cut
area prior to making the cut. Mark
the cut line directly on the tape.
3. Splintering typically happens due to
an incorrect blade application and
thinness of the material.
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°.
In order to accurately cut crown
molding for a 90° inside or outside
corner, lay the molding with its broad
back surface flat on the saw table.
When setting the bevel and miter
angles for compound miters, remember
that the settings are interdependent;
changing one changes the other, as
well.

!
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 that reduces motor
performance and increases wear.
DANGER
To avoid injury, never put lubricants
on the blade while it is spinning.

WARNING
Fig. II
To avoid fire or toxic reaction,
never use gasoline, naphtha
acetone, lacquer thinner or
similar highly volatile solvents to
clean the miter saw.
To avoid injury from unexpected
starting or electrical shock,
unplug the power cord before
working on the saw.
For your safety, this saw is
double-insulated. To avoid
electrical shock, fire or injury,
use only parts identical to
those identified in the parts
list. Reassemble exactly as
the original assembly to avoid
electrical shock.

LOWER BLADE GUARD
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.
REPLACING CARBON BRUSHES
(FIG. II)
Replace both carbon brushes when
either has less than 1/4 in. 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 springloaded. Then pull out the
brush and replace. Replace for the
other side. 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.

WARNING
When cleaning the lower guard,
unplug the saw from the power
source receptacle to avoid
unexpected startup.
Do not use solvents on the
guard. They could make the
plastic “cloudy” and brittle.
SAWDUST
Periodically, sawdust will accumulate
under the work table and base. This
could cause difficulty in the movement
