DOUBLE
INSULATION
IMPORTANT
Servicing 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 Sears store for repair. Always
use original factory replacement parts when servicing.
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 internal metal motor
components with protecting insulation. Double
insulated tools do not need to be grounded.
KEEP THE WORK AREA CLEAI'_. Cluttered
work areas and work benches invite accidents.
DO NOT leave tools or pieces of wood on the
saw while it is in operation.
WARNING:
Do not attempt to operate this tool
until you have read thoroughly and understand
completely all instructions, safety rules, etc.
contained in this manual. Failure to comply can
result in accidents involving fire, electric shock,
or serious personal injury. Save owner's manual

RULES
FOR SAFE
OPERATION
(Continued)
USE THE PROPER EXTENSION CORD. Make
sure your extension cord is in good condition.
When using an extension cord, be sure to use
one heavy enough to carry the current your
function. Check for alignment of moving parts,
binding of moving parts, breakage of parts,
mounting and any other conditions that may
affect its operation. A guard or other part that is
damaged must be properly repaired or replaced
by a qualified service technician at a Sears store
to avoid risk of personal injury.
product will draw. An undersized cord will cause
a drop in line voltage resulting in loss of power
and overheating. A wire gage size (A.W.G) of at
least 14 is recommended for an extension cord
25 feet or less in length. If in doubt, use the next
heavier gage. The smaller the gage number, the
heavier the cord.
NEVER LEAVE TOOL RUNNING UNATTENDED. TURN THE POWER OFF. Do not
leave tool until it comes to a complete stop.
m
INSPECT EXTENSION CORDS PERIODICALLY and replace if damaged.
USE ONLY CORRECT BLADES. Do not use
blades with incorrect size holes. Never use blade
washers or blade bolts that are defective or
incorrect. The maximum blade capacity of your
sew is 10 in.
DRESS PROPERLY. Do not wear loose clothing,
gloves, neckties, rings, bracelets, or other
jewelry. They can get caught and draw you into
moving parts. Rubber gloves and nonslip footwear are recommended when working outdoors.
Also wear protective hair covering to contain long
hair.

minimize risk of blade pinching and kickback.
Saw may slip, walk, or slide while cutting long or
•
NEVER reach to pick up a workpiooe, a piece of
scrap, or anything else that is in or near the
cutting path of the blade.
heavy boards.
•
AVOID AWKWARD OPERATIONS AND HAND
POSITIONS where a sudden slip could cause
your hand to move into the blade. ALWAYS
make sure you have good balance. NEVER
operate your miter sew on the floor or in a
crouched position.
•
NEVER stand or have any part of your body in
line with the path of the saw blade.
BEFORE MAKING A CUT, BE SURE ALL
ADJUSTMENTS ARE SECURE.
GUARD AGAINST KICKBACK. Kickback occurs
when the blade stalls rapidly and workpiece is
driven back towards the operator. It can pull your
hand into the blade resulting in serious personal
injury. Stay out of blade path and turn switch off
immediately if blade binds or stalls.
ALWAYS release the power switch and allow the
saw blade to stop rotating before raising it out of
the workpiece.
AVOID CU'R'ING NAILS. Inspect for and
remove all nails from lumber before cutting.
ALWAYS USE A CLAMP to secure the workpiece when possible.
DO NOT TURN THE MOTOR SWITCH ON AND
OFF RAPIDLY. This could cause the sew blade
to loosen and could create a hazard. Should this
ever occur, stand clear and allow the sew blade
to come to a complete stop. Disconnect your saw
from the power supply and securely retighten the
blade bolt.
NEVER TOUCH BLADE or other moving parts
during use.
NEVER START A TOOL WHEN THE BLADE IS
IN CONTACT WITH WORKPIECE. Allow motor
to come up to full speed before starting cut.
REPLACEMENT PARTS. All repairs, whether
electrical or mechanical, should be made by
qualified service technician at a Sears store.
MAKE SURE THE MITER TABLE AND SAW
ARM (BEVEL FUNCTION) ARE LOCKED IN
POSITION BEFORE OPERATING YOUR SAW.
Look the miter table by securely tightening the
miter lock handle. Look the sew arm (bevel
function) by securely tightening the bevel lock
knob.
WARNING:
When servicing use only identical
Craftsman replacement parts. Use of any other
parts may create a hazard or cause product
damage.
NEVER USE A LENGTH STOP ON THE FREE
SCRAP END OF A CLAMPED WORKPIECE.
NEVER USE IN AN EXPLOSIVE ATMOSPHERE. Normal sparking of the motor could
ignite fumes,
NEVER hold onto or bind the free scrap end of
the workpiece in any operation. If a work clamp
and length stop are used together, they must
both be installed on the same side of the sew
table to prevent the sew from catching the loose
end and kicking up.
NEVER leave the miter sew unattended while
connected to a power source.
POLARIZED PLUGS. To reduce the risk of
electric shock, this tool has a polarized plug (one
blade is wider than the other). This plug will fit in
a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does
not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still
does not fit, contact a qualified electdcian to
install the proper outlet. Do not change the plug
in any way.
NEVER cut more than one piece at a time. DO
NOT STACK more than one workpiece on the
saw table at a time.
NEVER PERFORM ANY OPERATION "FREEHAND". Always place the workpiece to be cut on
the miter table and position it firmly against the
fence as a backstop. Always use the fence.
IF ANY PART OF THIS MITER SAW IS MISSING or should break, bend, or fail in any way, or
should any electrical component fail to perform
properly, shut off the power switch, remove the
miter sew plug from the power source and have
damaged, missing, or failed parts replaced
before resuming operation.
NEVER hand hold a workpiece that is too small
to be clamped. Keep hands clear of the no hands
zone.
NEVER reach behind, under, or within three
inches of the blade and its cutting path with your
hands and fingers for any reason,
DO NOT OPERATE THIS TOOL WHILE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF DRUGS, ALCOHOL,
OR ANY MEDICATION.

Your compound miter saw has been adjusted at the
factory for making very accurate cuts. However, some
of the components might have been bumped out of
alignment during shipping. Also, over a period of time,
re-adjustment will probably become necessary due to
wear. After unp.ackingyour saw, check the following
adjustments before you begin using saw. Make any
re-adjustments that are necessary and periodically
check the parts alignment to make sure that your saw
is cutting accurately.
WARNING:
Your saw should never be
connected to power supply when you are
assembling parts, making adjustments, installing
or removing blades, or when not in use.
Disconnecting your saw will prevent accidental
starting that could cause sedous injury.
Note: Many of the illustrations in this manual show
only portions of your compound miter saw. This is
intentional so that we can cleady show points being
made in the illustrations. Never operate your saw
without all guards securely in place and in good
operating condition.
CUTTING
A SLOT IN THE ZERO
CLEARANCE
THROAT
PLATE
In order to use your compound miter saw, you must
cut a slot through the zero clearance throat plate to
allow for blade clearance. To cut the slot, set your
saw at 0 degrees miter, turn saw on and allow the
blade to reach full speed, then carefully make a
straight cut as far as it will go through the throat plate.
Turn your saw off and allow the blade to come to a
complete stop before raising the saw arm.
Next, adjust the bevel angle to 45 degrees, turn your
saw on and allow the blade to reach full speed, then
carefully make another cut through the zero clearance
throat plate. The throat plate will then be wide enough
to allow the blade to pass through it at any angle from
0 to 45 degrees.

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 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.
Place the workpiece fiat on the miter table with
one edge securely against the fence. If the board
is warped, place the convex side against the
fence. If the concave edge of a beard is placed
against the fence, the beard could collapse on the
blade at the end of the cut, jamming the blade.
See Figures 33 and 34.
Adjustments of miter and bevel settings are interdependent with one another. Each time you adjust the
miter seffing you change the effect of the bevel
setting. Also, each time you adjust the bevel setting
you change the effect of the miter setting.
When cutting long pieces of lumber or molding,
support the overhanging end(s) of the stock with a
roller stand or with a work surface level with the
saw table.

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.
Once the two correct settings for a particular cut have

MITER TABLE
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.
FLAT
ON THE
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.
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 fiat against the ceiling) of 52 ° and
a bottom rear angle (the section that fits flat against
the wall) of 38 ° .
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.
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 exacUy 90 °, therefore, you will need to fine
tune your settings.

by this method the bevel
angle should be sot at 33.85 °. The miter angle should
be sot 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.
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.

WARNING: When servicing, use only identical
Craftsman replacement ports. Use of any other
part may create a hazard or cause product
damage.
GENERAL
Avoid using solvents when cleaning plastic parts.
Most plastics are susceptible to damage from various
types of commercial solvents and may be damaged
by their use. Use clean cloths to remove dirt, carbon
dust, etc.
WARNING:
Do not at any time let brake fluids,
gasoline, petroleum-based products, penetrating
oils, etc. come in contact with plastic parts. They
contain chemicals that can damage, weaken or
destroy plastic.
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
LUBRICATION
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.
EXTENSION
CORDS
The use of any extension cord will cause some loss of
power. To keep the loss to a minimum and to prevent
tool overheating, usa an extension cord that is heavy
enough to carry the current the tool will draw.
A wire gage size (A.W.G.) of at least 16 is recommended for an extension cord 50 feet or less in
length. When working outdoors, use an extension
cord that is suitable for outdoor use. The cord's jacket
will be marked WA.
&
CAUTION: Keep extension cords away from the
cuffing area and position the cord so that it will
not get caught on lumber, tools, etc., during
cutting operation.
A
WARNING:
Check extension cords before each
use. If damaged, replace immediately. Never use
tool with a damaged cord since touching the
damaged area could cause electrical shock
resulting in serious injury.
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.
WARNING: Always wear safety goggles or
safety glasses with side shields during power
tool operation or when blowing dust. If operation
is dusty, also wear a dust mask.

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.
BRUSH
REPLACEMENT
Your saw has externally accessible brush assemblies
that should be periodically checked for wear.
Proceed as follows when replacement is required:
•
,_
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.
