WARNING
I
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, cement and other masonry products
•
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,
dust masks that are specially
work in a well ventilated area and work with approved
designed to filter out microscopic
particles.

[A WARNING
I
To avoid electrical hazards, fire hazards or damage to the tool, use proper circuit protection.
This tool is wired at the factory for 110=120 Volt operation. It must be connected to a 110=120 Volt / 15 Ampere
time delay fuse or circuit breaker. To avoid shock or fire, replace power cord immediately if it is worn, cut or
damaged in any way.
Before using your tool, it is critical that you read and understand these safety rules. Failure to follow these
rules could result in serious injury to you or damage to the tool.
GENERAL SAFETY iNSTRUCTiONS
Read and understand all the instructions below before using the power tool. These safety instructions are not
meant to cover every possible condition that could occur. As with any power tool, common sense, vigilance
and due care must be used.
1.
READ and become familiar with the entire Operator'
s Manual. LEARN the tool's application, limitations
and possible hazards.
17. NEVER LEAVE TOOL RUNNING UNATTENDED.
TURN THE POWER "OFF". Do not leave the tool
before it comes to a complete stop.

CAUTION! Become alert, your safety is involved
if you do not follow the safety instructions.
NEVER OPERATE THiS MACHINE WITHOUT
THE SAFETY GUARD iN PLACE FOR ALL
THROUGHSAWING OPERATIONS.
DO NOT USE iN A DANGEROUS ENVIRONMENT
such as damp or wet locations or exposure to rain.
Keep work area well lighted.
6.
DO NOT use power tools in the presence of
flammable liquids or gases.
7.
KEEP WORK AREA CLEAN. Cluttered areas and
benches invite accidents.
8.
KEEP CHILDREN AWAY. All visitors should be
kept at a safe distance from the work area.
9.
DO NOT FORCE THE TOOL. It will do the job
better and safer at the rate for which it was
designed.
10 USE THE RIGHT TOOL. Do not force the tool or
attachment to do a job for which it is not designed.
11. WEAR PROPER APPAREL. DO NOT wear loose
clothing, gloves, neckties, rings, bracelets or other
jewelry that may get caught in moving parts.
Nonslip footwear is recommended. Wear protective
hair covering to contain long hair.
12. WEAR A FACE MASK OR DUST MASK. Sawing,
cutting and sanding operations produce dust.
13. DISCONNECT TOOLS before servicing and when
changing accessories such as blades, cutters, etc.
14. REDUCE THE RiSK OF UNiNTENTiONAL
STARTING. Make sure the switch is in the OFF
position before plugging into the power supply.

accessories. The use of improper accessories may
cause injury to you or damage to the tool. adjusting

20. MAiNTAiN TOOLS WiTH CARE. Keep tools sharp
and clean for most efficient and safest performance.
Follow instructions for lubricating and changing
accessories.
21. CHECK FOR DAMAGED OR LOOSE PARTS.
Before further use of the tool, a guard or other
part that is damaged should be carefully checked
to ensure it will operate properly and perform its
intended function. Check for alignment of moving
parts, binding of moving parts, loose mounting
and any other conditions that may affect its safe
operation. A guard or other part that is loose or
damaged should be properly adjusted repaired or
replaced.
22. MAKE WORKSHOP CHILD PROOF with padlocks,
master switches or by removing starter keys.
23. DO NOT operate the tool if you are under the
influence of any drugs, alcohol or medication that
could impair your ability to use the tool safely.
24. USE A DUST COLLECTION SYSTEM wherever
possible. Dust generated from certain materials can
be hazardous to your health and in some cases, a
fire hazard. Always operate the power tool in a well
ventilated area with adequate dust removal.
25. ALWAYS WEAR EYE PROTECTION. Any power
tool can throw foreign objects into your eyes which
could cause permanent eye damage. ALWAYS
wear safety goggles (not glasses) that comply with
ANSI safety standard Z87.1. Everyday glasses
have only impact resistant lenses. They ARE NOT
safety glasses. NOTE: Glasses or goggles not in
compliance with ANSI Z87.1 could cause serious
injury when they break.
26. DiRECTiON OF FEED. Feed work into a blade or
cutter against the direction of rotation of the blade or
cutter only.
27. DO NOT AUTHORZE ADDiTiONAL USERS to
operate this power tool without the accompanying
operators manual for which the user must read and
understand.
ALWAYS USE SAW BLADE GUARD, splitter
and anti-kickback pawls for every through-sawing
operation. Through-sawing operations are those
in which the blade cuts completely through the
workpiece when ripping or crosscutting. Always be
sure blade guard is tightened securely.

be cut under saw to allow sawdust to fall through.
Failure to cut this hole will allow sawdust to build
up in the motor area, resulting in a fire hazard and
potential motor damage.
GROUNDING
iNSTRUCTiONS
IN THE EVENT OF A MALFUNCTION OR
BREAKDOWN, grounding provides a path of least
resistance for electric currents and reduces the risk of
electric shock. This tool is equipped with an electrical
cord that has an equipment-grounding conductor
and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged
into a matching receptacle that is properly installed
and grounded in accordance with all local codes and
ordinances.
DO NOT MODIFY THE PLUG PROVIDED. tf it will not
fit the receptacle, have the proper receptacle installed
by a qualified electrician.
IMPROPER CONNECTION of the equipment grounding
conductor can result in risk of electric shock. The
conductor with the green insulation (with or without
yellow stripes) is the equipment grounding conductor.
tf repair or replacement of the electrical cord or plug is
necessary, do not connect the equipment grounding
conductor to a live terminal.
CHECK with a qualified electrician or service person
if you do not completely understand the grounding
instructions, or if you are not certain the tool is properly
grounded.
or a #14 wire with a 15 A time-lag fuse. NOTE: When
using an extension cord on a circuit with a #14 wire, the
extension cord must not exceed 25 feet in length. Before
connecting the motor to the power line, make sure the
switch is in the off position and the electric current is
rated the same as the current stamped on the motor
nameplate. Running at a lower voltage will damage the
motor. This tool is intended for use on a circuit that has
a receptacle like the one illustrated in Fig. 1.
Fig. 1 shows a three-pronged electrical plug and
receptacle that has a grounding conductor. If a properly
grounded receptacle is not available, an adapter (Fig. 2)
can be used to temporarily connect this plug to a twocontact grounded receptacle. The adapter (Fig. 2) has a
rigid lug extending from it that MUST be connected to a
permanent earth ground, such as a properly grounded
receptacle box.
CAUTION
In all cases, make certain the receptacle is properly
grounded, if you are not sure, have a qualified
electrician check the receptacle.
CAUTION
This tool is for indoor use only. Do not expose to
rain or use in damp locations.
Fig. 1
Three-Pronged Plug
USE only three-wire extension cords that have threepronged grounding plugs with three-pole receptacles
that accept the tool's plug. Repair or replace damaged
or worn cords immediately.

{__..)
GUIDELINES
FOR EXTENSION
CORDS
USE THE PROPER EXTENSION CORD. Make sure
your extension cord is in good condition. Use an
extension cord heavy enough to carry the current your
product will draw. An undersized cord will cause a drop
in line voltage resulting in loss of power,
overheating and burning out of the motor. The table on
the right shows the correct size to use depending on
cord length and nameplate ampere rating, tf in doubt,
use the next heavier gauge. The smaller the gauge
number, the heavier the cord.
Make sure your extension cord is properly wired and in
good condition. Always replace a damaged extension
cord or have it repaired by a qualified technician before
using it. Protect your extension cords from sharp
objects, excessive heat and damp or wet areas.
Use a separate electrical circuit for your tool. This circuit
must not be less than #12 wire with a 20 A time-lag fuse
