CRRFTSMaW TABLESAW315.228110
RULES FOR SAFE OPERATION
(Continued)
GUARD AGAINST KICKBACK. Kickback can
occur when the blade stalls, driving the work
piece back toward the operator. It can pull your
hand into the blade, resulting in serious personal
injury. Stay out of the blade path and turn switch
off immediately if blade binds or stalls.
ALLOW THE MOTOR TO COME UP TO FULL
SPEED before starting a cut to avoid blade
binding or stalling.
ALWAYS PUSH THE WORKPIECE;
toward the saw.
DO NOT FEED THE MATERIAL TOO QUICKLY.
Do not force the workpiece against the blade.
USE A SUPPORT FOR THE SIDES AND BACK
.OF THE SAW TABLE when sawing wide or long
workpieces. Use a sturdy "outrigger" support if a
table extension is more than 24 inches long and
is attached to the saw, to prevent tipping.
ALWAYS TURN OFF SAW before disconnecting
it, to avoid accidental starting when reconnecting
to power supply. NEVER leave the table saw
unattended while connected to a power source.
CUT ONLY WOOD, PLASTIC OR WOOD-LIKE
MATERIALS. Do not cut metal.
•
BEFORE CHANGING THE SETUP, REMOVING
COVERS, GUARDS, OR BLADE; unplug the
saw from power supply.
NEVER cut more than one piece at a time. DO
NOT STACK more than one workpiece on the
saw table at a time.
KEEP TOOL DRY, CLEAN, AND FREE FROM
OIL AND GREASE. Always use a clean cloth
when cleaning. Never use brake fluids, gasoline,
petroleum-based products, or any solvents to
clean tool.
DO NOT REMOVE THE SAW'S BLADE
GUARDS. Never operate the saw with any guard
or cover removed. Make sure all guards are
operating properly before each use.
KEEP BLADES CLEAN, SHARP AND WITH
SUFFICIENT SET. Sharp blades minimize
stalling and kickback.
NEVER PERFORM ANY OPERATION FREEHAND. Always place the workpiece to be cut on
the saw table and position it firmly against the
fence as a backstop.
USE ONLY OUTDOOR EXTENSION CORDS.
Use only extension cords with the marking
"Acceptable for use with outdoor appliances;
store cords indoors while not in use." Use
extension cords with an electrical rating not less
than the saw's rating. Always disconnect the
extension cord from the outlet before disconnecting the productfrom the extension cord.
USE THE RIP FENCE. Always use a fence or
straight edge guide when ripping.
BEFORE MAKING A CUT, be sure all adjustmerits are secure.
•
BE SURE THE BLADE PATH IS FREE OF
NAILS. Inspect for and remove all nails from
lumber before cutting.
•
BE SURE THE BLADE CLEARS THE
WORKPIECE. Never start the saw with the blade
touching the workpiece.

When working with the tool outdoors, use an extension cord that is designed for outside use. This is
indicated by the letters WA on the cord's jacket.
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.
Before using an extension cord, inspect it for loose or
exposed wires and cut or worn insulation.

CAUTION: Keep the cord away from the cutting
area and position the cord so that it will not be
caught on lumber, tools, or other objects during
cutting operations.

CONNECTION
Your Sears Craftsman Table Saw is powered by a
precision built electric motor. It should be connected
to a power supply that is 120 volts, 60 Hz, AC only
(normal household current). Do not operate this tool
on direct current (DC). A substantial voltage drop will
cause a loss of power and the motor will overheat. If
the saw does not operate when plugged into an
out_et,double check the power supply.

WARNING:

Electrical shock can kill.
@
SPEED AND WIRING
The no-load speed of your table saw is approximately
4,800 rpm. This speed is not constant and decreases
under a load or with lower voltage. For voltage, the
wiring in a shop is as important as the motor's horsepower rating. A line intended only for lights cannot
properly carry a power tool motor. Wire that is heavy
enough for a short distance will be too light for a
greater dist.ance. A line that can support one power
tool may not be able to support two or three tools.

WARNING:
To prevent possible electrical
hazards, have a qualified electrician check the
line if you are not certain that it is properly wired.
_i,
WARNING:
precautions
Observe all normal safety
related to avoiding electrical
shock.
DEVICES
Safety devices on your saw include the blade guard,
the anti-kickback pawls, and the riving knife (also
known as a splitter or spreader). The blade guard =sa
clear strong plastic shield designed to prevent accidental contact with the blade. It also deflects any
flying debris from within.
WARNING: Before attempting to use your saw,
familiarize yourself with all operating features
and safety requirements.

The no-load speed of your table saw is approximately
4,800 rpm. The speed will not remain constant but will
be less under a load. The wiring in a shop is as
important as the motor's horsepower rating. A line
intended for lights only will not properly
carry a
power tool motor. Wire that is heavy enough for a
short distance will be too light for a greater distance. A
line that can support one power tool may not be able
to support two or three tools.

CAUTION:
The saw blade "coasts"

_,
COMPONENTS
The upper portion of the blade projects up through the
table, surrounded by an insert called the throat plate.
To cut wood at a bevel, the blade must be tilted, using
the blade adjustment handTe, scale, and bevel indicator found on the front of the cabinet. Inside the
cabinet, adjustable positive stops control the degree
of movement.
WARNING: Although many of the illustrations in
this manual are shown with the blade guard
removed for clarity, do not operate the saw
without the blade guard unless specifically
instructedto do so.
The riving knife is a metal device directly behind and
above the blade. It is used to help keep the cut wood
from binding together and causing possible kickback. It
is very important to use the riving knife for all throughsawing operations. The anti-kickback pawls are
toothed plates mounted on the riving knife. Their teeth
point away from the work in case the work should be
pulled back, toward the operator. Then the teeth dig
into the wood to help prevent or reduce the possibility
of kickback.
The sliding miter table assembly is used for all crosscutting operations. The miter fence is easily adjusted
to cut wood at an angle by loosening the adjusting
clamp, setting the fence to the miter scale, and
retightening the clamp. The sliding miter table, which
rests on a base mounted on the rails, can be repositioned along the rails for wide work. It can be reversed
for ripping so the projecting base is in the back.
Your saw features a receptacle on the right side of the
cabinet that permits use of accessories. Use only
accessories that are listed for use with this tool. When
Your saw includes a rip fence and an accessory table.
The accessory table can be moved from the right side
of the saw to the left side as needed. The rip fence is
used to position work that will be cut lengthwise. A
scale on the front rail shows the distance between the
rip fence and the blade.
using a listed accessory, unplug the saw motor cord
and use the receptacle and the saws main power
switch to operate the accessory.

INFORMATION
GROUNDING
Your saw's three-prong plug must be plugged into a
matching outlet that is properly installed and grounded
in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
"Improper connection of the equipment can result in
electric shock. Check with an electrician or service
personnel if you are unsure about proper grounding.
Do not modify the plug; if it will not fit the outlet, have
the correct outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
To temporarily use the saw with a two-prong outlet,
use an adapter, provided the outlet is properly
grounded. Make sure the extending green wire is
connected to the outlet-plate retaining screw. The
temporary adapter should be used only until a properly grounded outlet can be installed by a qualified
electrician, and only if ordinances permit such use.

WITHBLADEVERTICAL
There are six basic types of cuts: the straight cross
cut, the miter cut, the rip cut, the bevel cross cut, the
bevel rip cut, and the bevel miter cut (compound miter
cut). All other cuts are of these basic six. Operating
procedures for making each kind of cut are given later
in this section.

WARNING: Always make sure the blade guard
and anti-kickback pawls are in place and working
properly when making these cuts to avoid
possible injury.
Figure 22
CUTACROSSTHEGRAIN,
ONA ANGLEDWORKPIECE,
WITHBLADEVERTICAL
Cross cuts are straight, 90 degree cuts made across
the grain of the workpiece. The wood is fed into the
cut at a 90 degree angle to the blade and the blade is
vertical. See Figure 22.
Miter cuts are made with the wood at any angle other
than 90 degrees. See Figure 23. (The wood is angled
to the blade.) Miter cuts may tend to "creep" away
from the miter fence during cutting. This can be
controlled by holding the workpiece securely against
the miter fence. The miter clamp kit has been designed and tested for this purpose.

firmly against the fence, and always use a push stick
with small or narrow pieces of wood.
Note: Push sticks should also be used to finish a cut
when ripping long narrow pieces of wood, to prevent
your hands from getting close to the blade. See

TO REDUCE
ANTI-KICKBACK
PAWLS IN PLACE
RISK OF KICKBACK
Kickback can occur when the blade stalls or binds,
kicking the workpiece back toward you with great
force and speed. If your hands are near the saw
blade, they may be jerked loose and thrown into the
blade. Obviously, kickback can cause serious injury,
and it is weUworth using precautions to avoid the
risks.
CORRECT
BLADEDEPTH
BLADE GUARD
IN PLACE
Kickback can be caused by any action that pinches
the blade in the wood, such as the following:
making a cut with incorrect blade depth
PUSHSTICK
sawing into knots or nails in the workpiece
•
twisting the wood while making a cut
making a cut with a dull, gummed-up, or improperly set blade
•
failing to support work
forcing a cut
•
cutting warped or wet lumber
misusing the saw
not following correct operating procedures
•
failing to use the anti-kickback pawls

TO AVOID KICKBACK
Use these guidelines to avoid kickback:
•
Always use the correct blade depth setting. The
top point of the blade teeth shouldclear the work,piece,
1/8 inch to 1/4 inch.
•
Inspect the work for knots or nails before beginning
a cut. Knock out any loose knots with a hammer.
Never saw into a loose knot or nail.
•
Make straight cuts. Always use the rip fence when
rip cutting. This helps prevent twisting the wood in
the cut.
•
Always use clean, sharp, and properly-set blades.
Never make cuts with dull blades.
•
To avoid pinching the blade, support the work
properly before beginning a cut.
•
When making a cut, use steady, even pressure.
Never force cuts.
•
Do not cut wet or warped lumber.
•
Always hold your workpiece firmly with both hands
or use push blocks, push sticks, and featherboards
to keep your body in a balanced position to be able
to resist kickback should it occur. Use
featherboards
and push sticks to control nonthrough cuts on small workpieces.

Off and allow the blade to completely stop rotating
before removing the stock. Reset the rip fence and
cut spaced rips into the workpiece to allow
approximately 1/4 in. fingers and 1/8 in. spaces
between the fingers. See Figure 35.
WARNING:
Never stand directly in line with the
blade or allow hands to come closer than 3
inches to the blade. Do not reach over or across
the blade. Failure to comply can result in serious
personal injury,
Use the right type of blade for the cut being made.
TO MAKE A PUSH STICK
A push stick is a device used to safely push a
workpiece through the blade instead of using your
hands. Push sticks in various sizes and shapes can
be made from scrap wood. The stick must always be
narrower than the workpiece. If it is too wide, it may
jam on the rip fence or blade. When ripping narrow
stock, always use a push stick so your hand does not
come close to the saw blade.
HOW TO MOUNT A FEATHERBOARD
Remove the adjusting clamp knob, bolt and washer
from the Miter Fence Holder. Place the bolt through
one of the holes in the featherboard. Positioning the
featherboard will depend on the placement of the bolt
and the position of the sliding miter table on the rails.
Place the washer on the bolt and attach the adjusting
clamp knob, loosely. Position the featherboard with
the hex head of the bolt in the miter table slot but do
not tighten. Completely lower the saw blade. Position
the rip fence to the desired adjustment for the cut to
be performed and lock. Place the workpiece against
the fence and over the saw blade area. Adjust the
featherboard to apply resistance to the workpiece just
forward of the blade. Securely tighten the adjusting
clamp knob to secure the featherboard in place.
Attach a C-clamp to further secure the featherboard to
the edge of the S_iding Miter Table.
Note: Push blocks and featherboards should always
be used when making non-through cuts.
A simple push stick design is shown in figure 34.
Remember that the stick must always be narrower
than the workpiece to avoid risk of injury.
FEATHERBOARD
A featherboard is a device used to help control the
workpiece by guiding it securely against the table or
fence. Featherboards are especially useful when
ripping small workpieces and for completing nonthrough cuts. Featherboards are made from a solid
piece of straight grain wood, free from splitsor knots.
HOW TO MAKE A FEATHERBOARD
_lh WARNING: Do not locate the featherboard to
the rear of the workpiece. Kickback can result
from the featherboard pinching the workpiece
and binding the blade in the saw kerf if
positioned improperly. Failure to heed this
warning can result in serious personal injury.
The featherboard is an excellent project for your
saw. Select a solid piece of lumber approximately 3/4 in.
thick, 3-5/8 in. wide and 18 inches long. Mark the
center of the width on one end of the stock. Miter
one-half of the width to 30 ° and miter the other half

The sliding miter table assembly has been preset at the factory to be parallel to the blade. However,
misalignment
during shipping or requirements for very precise and accurate cuts may require
realignment. The square relationship between the blade and the miter fence as it travels the entire
distance from the front to the rear of the miter table base during a cut is very important
precise and accurate cuts.
for making
To avoid unnecessary setups and adjustments, we suggest that you check these setups carefully with a
framing square and make practice cuts in scrap wood before making finish cuts in good workpieces.
Note: Follow the general rule of measuring twice and cutting once.
Do not loosen any screws for the following adjustments until you have made checks and are sure
adjustments are needed. Once screws have been loosened, these settings must be reset.
Two basic checks
should be made to determine
if adjustments
are necessary:
•
The miter base must be parallel to the blade as the table slides from the front to the rear of the miter
table assembly.
•
The miter fence must be square to the blade when set at exactly zero (0 °) on the miter table scale.
This is necessary in order to be able to use the scale on the miter table. The miter table has
adjustment screws for squaring miter fence to blade and maintaining 0 ° scale settings when miter
base adjustments are required.
Note: These checks and adjustments are being explained in step by step procedures, however, you
should be aware that they depend upon each other.

•
Set saw up as if you were preparing to make a cut.
Tighten rail clamps, miter _ocking clamps, ad}usting

•
Slide miter table (A) to the front of miter base (B)
as far as it will go. Place a reference mark (C) near
the end of the miter table as shown in figure 54.
Note: Front of miter base is on infeed side of saw.
•
•

WARNING:
Begin by unplugging your saw.
Failure to unplug saw could result in accidental
starting causing possible serious injury.
B
Place a reference mark on one of the blade teeth
(D) and rotate the blade (E) so that the reference
mark on the blade is at the front of the throat plate
(F).
Figure 54
E
Place a framing square (G) against the blade and
align with reference mark on miter table. Measure
the distance between the blade and the edge of
miter table.
Note: Place framing square between carbide teeth
and measure from blade. This step wi_Zinsure
framing square is square against blade from the
front to back of blade.
•
•
•
G
Remove framing square and slide miter table to the
rear of miter base as far as it will go.
See Figure 55.
Rotate the blade so the reference mark on the
blade is at the rear of the throat plate. Measuring
from the same mark on the blade at the rear will
eliminate the effect of blade wobble.
C
Place framing square against the blade and align
with the same reference mark on the miter table.
Measure the distance between the blade and the
edge of the miter table at the rear.
•
Compare whether the front and rear
measurements
are the same. If they are the same,
proceed with checking the miter fence alignment. If
not, this indicates the miter base needs aligning.
Miter base must then be adjusted before checking
miter fence alignment. See "To Adjust The Miter
Base" section that follows.

Set the miter fence (H) at 0 ° as shown in figure 56.
Miter indicator (I) should be set precisely on 0° and

Note: The quick-stop is not necessary for this
checking procedure. However, you may want to
check and adjust it to 0 ° at this time. See "QuickStop" section that follows.
•
Place a framing square (G) firmly against the miter
fence (H), with the other side against the blade (E).
See Figure 56.
•
Check whether the miter fence and blade are
square with each other. With the framing square
against the miter fence there should be no gap
from the front to the rear of the blade.
•
•
If a gap exists, the miter fence may be out of
square.
Rotate the blade and recheck. If there is a
consistent gap between the front and rear of the
blade, the miter table needs aligning. Follow the
adjustment procedures that follow.
