EXTENSION
CORDS
GROUNDING
Use only 3-wire extension cords that have 3-prong
grounding plugs and 3-pole receptacles that 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, resulting in a loss of
power and causing the motor to overheat. Use the
chart provided below to determine the minimum wire
size required in an extension cord. Only round jacketed cords listed by Underwriter's Laboratories (UL)
should be used.
Length of Extension
Cord
In the event of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding
provides a path of least resistance for electric current
to reduce the risk of electric shock. This tool is
equipped with an electric cord having an equipmentgrounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug
must be plugged into a matching outlet that is properly
installed and grounded in accordance with all local
codes and ordinances.
Do not modify the plug provided. If it will not fit the
outlet, have the proper outlet installed by a qualified
electrician. Improper connection of the equipmentgrounding conductor can result in a risk of electric
shock. The conductor with insulation having an outer
surface that is green with or without yellow stripes is
the equipment-grounding conductor. If repair or
replacement of the electric cord or plug is necessary,
do not connect the equipment-grounding conductor to
a live terminal.
Wire Size (A.W.G.)
Up to 25 feet

26-100 feet

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.
ELECTRICAL
INSTRUCTIONS
Repair or replace a damaged or worn cord immediately.
This tool is intended for use on a circuit that has an
outlet like the one shown in Figure 1. It also has a
grounding pin like the one shown.
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
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 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 distance. A line that can support one power
tool may not be able to support two or three tools.

Assembly is best done in the area where the saw will be used. When you remove the table saw base, loose
parts, and hardware from the packing materials, check all items with the loose parts list and drawing. If you are
unsure about the description of any part, refer to the drawing. If any parts are missing, delay assembling until
you have obtained the missing part(s).
INSTALLING

HANDWHEELS
ON TABLE
Note: tf you do not use the leg stand and mount the
saw table base on a bench instead of the legs, go
to the procedure for Assembfing Table Extensions.
Be sure the bench surface has an opening for
sawdust to fall through. The opening should be as
large as the opening in the bottom of the saw table
base. A height of 36 inches from the top of the
saw table to the floor is recommended.

ALIGNING
TABLE
EXTENSIONS
See Figure 11.
A good alignment allows the rails to slide on easily.
WARNING:
The table extensions not only
provide a support for large or wide pieces of
material, but help protect you. Serious injury can
result from workpiece binding or kickback due to
twisted rails or a misaligned rip fence.
With the saw upside down, align table extensions
to the saw table. Put a flat washer on each bolt,
and attach the extensions to the table by inserting
bolts through holes from the direction of the table.
Slip the remaining flat washers and hex nuts on the
bolts. Lightly tighten with a 12 mm wrench.
•
Stand at the front of the saw and line up the front
edges of the saw table and extensions.
•
Pull the extensions out slightly, put a block of wood
where the extension meets the table, and tap the
block of wood with a hammer. Check and repeat
until the front edges are even.
•
Lift each extension slightly until it is higher than
table (if necessary, place a block below and tap
upward). Center the block of wood over the front
and rear edges and tap it until both are even (flush)
with saw table. Recheck the front alignment. If
even, tighten the screws with a 12 mm wrench.

BASIC
OPERATION
OF THE TABLE
SAW
A table saw can be used for straight-line cutting
operations such as cross cutting, ripping, mitering,
beveling, and compound cutting. It can make dado or
molding cuts with optional accessories.
The 3-prong plug must be plugged into a matching
outlet that is properly installed and grounded according to 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. Refer
to the Electrical page of this manual.
Sawing into knots or nails in the workpiece
•
Twisting the wood while making a cut
•
Failing to support work
•
Forcing a cut
•
Cutting warped or wet lumber
•
Using the wrong blade for the type of cut
•
Not following correct operating procedures
•
Misusing the saw
•
Failing to use the anti-kickback pawls
•
Cutting with a dull, gummed-up, or improperly set
blade
AVOIDING
•
Do not cut wet or warped lumber.
•
Always hold your workpiece firmly with both hands
or with pushsticks. Keep your body in a balanced
position to be ready to resist kickback should it
occur. Never stand directly in line with the blade.
•
Use the right type of blade for the cut being made.
,_
o
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.
•
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.
•
Always use the rip fence when rip cutting and the
miter gage when cross cutting. This helps prevent
twisting the wood in the cut.
•
Always use clean, sharp, and properly-set blades.
Never make cuts with dull blades.
CAUTION:
Be sure the screw is recessed to
avoid damaging the saw or workpiece.
PUSHSTICK8
PUSHBLOCK8
KICKBACK
•
AIDS
A pushblock has a handle fastened by recessed
screws from the underside. Use it on non-through
cuts.
Kickback can be caused by any action that pinches
the blade in the wood, such as the following:
•
When making a cut, use steady, even pressure.
Never force cuts.
Pushsticks are devices used for safely pushing a
workpiece through the blade instead of using your
hands. They can be made in various sizes and
shapes from scrap wood to use in a specific project.
The stick must be narrower than the workpiece, with a
90½ notch in one end and shaping for a grip on the
other end.
Kickback can occur when the blade stalls or binds,
kicking the workpiece back toward you with great
force and speed, tf your hands are near the sawblade,
they may be jerked loose from the workpiece and may
contact the blade. Obviously, kickback can cause
serious injury, and it is well worth using precautions to
avoid the risks.
Making a cut with incorrect blade depth
•
See Figure 45.
OF KICKBACK
•
To avoid pinching the blade, support the work
properly before beginning a cut.
CUTTING
Note: This table saw is designed to cut wood and
wood composition products only.
CAUSES
•
Fig.45
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. The end is angled, with a number of
short kerfs to give a friction hold on the workpiece.
Lock it in place on the table with a C-clamp. Test that
it could resist kickback.
A
35
WARNING:
Place the featherboard against the
uncut portion of the workpiece, to avoid
kickback that could cause serious personal
injury.
rRRFI"$MRN° TABLESAW315.228390
TYPES
OF CUTS
See Figure 46.
There are six basic cuts: 1) 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 procedures for making each kind
of cut are given later in this section.
_lh
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.
Rip Cut
Cross cuts are straight 90 ° cuts made across the
grain of the workpiece. The wood is fed into the cut at
a 90 ° 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 controlled by holding the
workpiece securely against the miter fence.
,_
WARNING:
Always use a pushstick with small
pieces of wood, and also to finish the cut when
ripping a long narrow piece of wood, to prevent
your hands from getting close to the blade.
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
thoroughly familiar with making cross cuts, rip cuts,
bevel cuts, and miter cuts before trying a compound
miter cut.
,_
Bevel Rip Cut
WARNING:
All blades and cutting accessories
must be rated for at least 5,000 rpm to prevent
possible injury.

WARNING:
Make sure the blade guard is
lowered over blade and is working properly to
prevent possible injury.
•
Set the blade to the right depth for the workpiece by
turning the height handwheel.
•
Set the miter gage to 0°. Make sure miter gage
knob is securely tightened.
•
Place a support the same height as the top of the
saw table behind the saw for the cut work.
•
The miter gage may be used in either of the two
grooves in the table. When using left groove, hold
workpiece firmly against the miter gage base with
your left hand and grip the knob with your right
hand. When using the right groove, hold workpiece
firmly against the miter gage base with your right
hand and grip the knob with your left hand. See
Figure 47.
