RULES FOR SAFE OPERATION
•
(Continued)
ALLOW THE MOTOR TO COME UP TO FULL
SPEED before starting e cut to avoid blade
binding or stalling.
GUARD AGAINST KICKBACK. Kickbackcan
occurwhen the blade sta$$s,
ddving the work
piece back toward the operator. It can pull your
hand intothe blade, resultingin sedous personal
injury. Stay out of the blade path and turn switch
off immediately if blade binds or stalls.
ALWAYS PUSH THE WORKP|ECE; never pull it
toward the saw.
DO NOT FEED THE MATERIAL TOO QUICKLY.
Do not fome 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 preventtipping.
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; unplugthe
saw and remove the switch key.
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 propedy befol'eeach 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 outdoorappliances;
store cords indoorswhile not in use." Use
extension cords with an electrical rating not less
than the saw's rating.Always disconnectthe
extension cord from the outlet before disconnectingthe 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 adjustments 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 workplace.
•
KEEP HANDS AWAY FROM CUTTING AREA.
Do not reach underneath work or in blade cutting
path with your hands and fingers for any reason.
Always turn the power off.
•
USE A PUSHBLOCK OR PUSH STICK for
workpieces so small that your fingers go under
the blade guam:d.
NEVER TOUCH BLADE or
other moving parts during use, for any reason.

EXTENSION
CORDS
GROUNDING
Use only 3-wire extension cords that have 3-prong
groundingplugs and 3-pole receptaclesthat accept
the tool's plug. When using a power tool at a considerable distance from the power source, use an
extension cord heavy enough to carry the current that
the tool will draw. An undersized extension cord will
cause a drop in line voltage, resultingin a loss of
power and causing the motorto overheat. Use the
chart provided below to determine the minimumwire
size required in an extension cord. Only roundjacketed cords listed by Underwriter'sLaboratories(UL)
shouldbe used.
Length of Extension Cord
Up to 25 feet
26-100 feet
In the event of a malfunctionor breakdown, grounding
providesa path of least resistancefor electriccurrent
to reduce the risk of electric shock. This tool is
equipped with an electric cord having an equipmentgroundingconductorand a groundingplug. The plug
must be plugged into a matching outletthat is propedy
installedand grounded in accordance with all local
codes and ordinances.
Do not modifythe plug provided. If it will not fit the
outlet, have the proper outlet installedby a qualified
electrician. Improper connectionof the equipmentgroundingconductorcan result in a risk of electric
shook. The conductorwith insulationhaving an outer
surface that is green with or without yellowstripes is
the equipment-groundingconductor. If repair or
replacement of the electdc cord or plug is necessary,
do not connect the equipment-groundingconductorto
a live terminal.
Wire Size (A.W.G.)
14
12
When workingwith 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.
Before using an extension cord, inspect it for loose or
exposed wires and cut or worn insulation.
_k
Check with a qualified electricianor service personnel
if the groundinginstructionsare not completely
understood,or if in doubt as to whether the tool is
properlygrounded.
CAUTION: Keep the cord away from the cutting
area and positionthe cord so that it will not be
caught on lumber, tools, or other objects dudng
cuttingoperations.
ELECTRICAL
INSTRUCTIONS
Repair or replace a damaged or worn cord immediately.
This tool is intendedfor use on a circuit that has an
outlet like the one shown in Figure 1. It also has a
groundingpin like the one shown.
CONNECTION
Your Sears Craftsman Table Saw is powered by a
precision builtelectric 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 substantialvoltage drop will
cause a loss of power and the motor will overheat. If
the saw does not operate when plugged intoan
outlet, double check the power supply.
SPEED AND WIRING
The no-load speed of your table saw is approximately
3,600 rpm. This speed is not constantand decreases
under a load or with lowervoltage. For voltage, the
wiring in a shop is as importantas the motor's horsepower rating. A line intended only for lights cannot
properlycarry 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 supportone power
tool may not be able to supporttwo or three tools.

, ,,e upper portion of the blade projects up through the
table, surrounded by an insertcalled the throat plate.
The height of the blade is set with a handwheel and
locked with a handle, both on the front of the cabinet.
To accommodate wide panels, the tabletop has
extensions on each side. Detailed instructionsare
provided in the Operationsection of this manual for
the basic cuts: cross cuts, miter cuts, bevel cuts, and
compound cuts.
To tilt the blade for a bevel cut, use the bevel
handwheel on the side of the cabinet. A bevel scale
on the front of the cabinet shows the blade angle.
Inside the cabinet, adjustable positive stops control
the degree of tilt.
Use the miter gage with a bevel cross cut (compound
cut) and the rip fence with a bevel ripcut. Other cuts
require special attachments, which have detailed
instructions to reduce risk of injury and ensure the
best performance from your new saw.
For cuts with the blade straight up and cutting across
the grain (cross cuts or miter cuts), use the miter gage
to set the angle and pushthe wood into the blade. To
cut with the blade straight up, along the grain of the
wood (rip cuts), use the rip fence to guide the wood.
Push smaller pieces with a pushblockor pushstick.
Before attempting to use your saw, familiarize yourself
with all operating features and safety requirements of
your Sears Craftsman table saw. The saw's features
are described below.

BASIC OPERATION
OF THE TABLE SAW
A table saw can be used for straight-linecutting
operations such as cross cutting, ripping,mitering,
beveling, and compound cutting. It can make dado or
moldingcuts with optional accessories.
The three-prong plug must be plugged into a matching outletthat is propeity installed and grounded
according to all local codes and ordinances. Improper
connectionof the equipment can result in electdc
shock. Check with an electrician or service personnel
if you are unsure about proper grounding, Do not
modifythe plug; if it will not fit the outlet, have the
correctoutlet installed by a qualified electrician. Refer
to the Electrical page of this manual.
Note: This table sew is designed to cut wood and
wood compositionproductsonly.
To avoid pinchingthe blade, supped 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 workpiecefirmlywith both hands
or with pushsticks.Keep yourbody in a balanced
positionto be ready to resist kickbackshouldit
occur. Never stand directlyin line with the blade.
•
Use the dghttype of blade for the cut being made.
CUTTING AIDS
See Figure 42.
Pushsticksare devices used for safely pushinga
workpiece through the blade insteadof using your
hands. They can be made in various sizes and
shapes from scrap wood to use in a specificproject.
The stick must be narrewet than the workpiece, with a
90" notch in one end and shapingfor a grip on the
other end.
CAUSES OF KICKBACK
Kickbackcan occurwhen the blade stalls or binds,
kickingthe workpiece back toward you with great
force end speed, if your hands are near the sewblade,
they may be jerked loose from the workpiece and may
contactthe blade. Obviously, kickbackcan cause
serious injury, and it is well worth using precautionsto
avoidthe risks.
A pushblock has a handle fastened by recessed
screws from the underside, Use it on non-through
cuts.
_IL
Kickbackcan be caused by any action that pinches
the blade in the wood, such as the following:
•
•
CAUTION: Be sure the screw is recessed to
avoid damaging the saw or workpiece.
PUSHBLOCKS
Making a cut with incorrectblade depth
• Sawing intoknots or nails in the workpiece
• Twistingthe wood while making a cut
•
Failingto supportwork
•
Forcinga cut
•
Cuttingwarped or wet lumber
•
Using the wrong blade for the type of cut
•
Not following correct operating procedures
•
Misusingthe saw
•
Fai{ingto use the ant'vkickback pawls
•
Cutting with a dull, gummed-up, or improperlyset
blade
AVOIDING
PUSHSTICKS
KICKBACK
• Always use the correct blade depth setting. The
top of the blade teeth should clear the workpiece
by 1/8 in. to 1/4 in.
• Inspectthe work for knotsor nails before beginning
a cut. Knockout any loose knots with a hammer.
Never saw into a loose knot or nail.
•
Fig.42
A featherboard is used when it is not practical to use
the miter gage, usually due to the size of the
workpieca. The end is angled, with a number of short
kerfs to give a friction hold on the workpiece. Use a
C-clamp to lock it in place on the table. Test that it
could resist kickback.
Always use the rip fence when rip cuttingand the
miter gage when cross cutting.This helpsprevent
twisting the wood in the cut.
• Always use clean, sharp, and properly-set blades.
Never make cuts with dull blades.
,_
33
WARNING: Place the featherboard against the
uncut portion of the workpiece,to avoid kickback.
CRBFTSMRN"TABLESAY/$15.22_10
TYPES OF CUTS
See Figure 43.
There are six basic cuts: t ) the cross cut,
2) the rip cut, 3) the miter cut, 4) the bevel cross cut,
5) the bevel rip cut, and 6) the compound (bevel)
miter cut. All other cuts are combinations of these
basic six. Operating proceduresfor making each kind
of cut are given later in this sect'lon."
_.
Cross Cut
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.
Cross cuts are straight 90" 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,
®
Rip cuts are made with the grain of the wood. To
avoid kickback while making a rip cut, make sure one
side of the wood rides firmly against the rip fence.
Miter Cut
Miter cuts are made with the wood at any angle to the
blade other than 90". The blade is vertical. Miter cuts
tend to "creep" away from the miter fence during
cutting.This can be controlledby holdingthe
workpiece securely against the miter fence.
_,
o
WARNING: Always use a pushstickwith small
pieces of wood, and also to finish the cut when
rippinga long narrow piece of wood, to prevent
your hands from getting close to the blade.
Bevel Cross Cut
Bevel cuts are made with an angled blade. Bevel
cross cuts are across the wood grain, and bevel rip
cuts are with the grain. The rip fence must always be
on the right side of the blade for bevel rip cuts.
Compound (or bevel) miter cuts are made with an
angled blade on wood that is angled to the blade. Be
thoroughlyfamiliar with making cross cuts, dp cuts,
bevel cuts, and miter cuts before tryinga compound
miter cut.
_,
Bevel Rip Cut
WARNING: All blades and cutting accessodes
must be rated for at least 5,000 rpm to prevent
possible injury.
