Glossary of Terms
The following is a list of common definitions, terms and phrases used throughout this manual as they relate
to this table saw and woodworking in general. Become familiar with these terms for assembling, adjusting
or operating this machine. Your safety is VERY important to us at Grizzly!
Arbor: Rotating metal shaft to which saw blade
is mounted that extends from the drive mechanism.
Bevel Edge Cut: Tilting the arbor and saw blade
to an angle between 0° and 45° to cut a beveled edge onto a workpiece.
Blade Guard: Metal or plastic safety device that
mounts over the saw blade. Its function is to
prevent the operator from coming into contact
with the saw blade.
Crosscut: Cutting operation in which the fence is
used to cut across the grain, or the miter gauge
is used to cut across the shortest width of the
workpiece.
Dado Blade: Blade or set of blades that are used
to cut wide grooves and rabbets.
Dado Cut: "Non-through" cutting operation that
uses a dado blade to cut a flat-bottomed
groove into the face of the workpiece.
Featherboard: Safety device used to keep the
workpiece against the rip fence and table surface.
Kerf: The resulting cut or gap in the workpiece
after the saw blade passes through during a
cutting operation.
Kickback: An event in which the workpiece is
propelled back towards the operator at a high
rate of speed.
Model G0771Z (Mfd. Since 09/16)
Parallel: Being an equal distance apart at every
point along two given lines or planes. I.e. the
rip fence face is parallel to the face of the saw
blade.
Non-Through Cut: A cut in which the blade does
not cut through the top of the workpiece. Refer
to Page 27 for more details.
Perpendicular: Lines or planes that intersect and
form right angles. I.e. the blade is perpendicular
to the table surface.
Push Stick: Safety device used to push the
workpiece through a cutting operation. Used
most often when rip cutting thin workpieces.
Rabbet: Cutting operation that creates an
L-shaped channel along the edge of the
workpiece.
Riving Knife: Metal plate located behind the
blade. It maintains the kerf opening in the wood
when performing a cutting operation. Refer to
Page 33 for more details.
Straightedge: A tool used to check the flatness,
parallelism, or consistency of a surface(s).
Through Cut: A sawing operation in which the
workpiece is completely sawn through.
Rip Cut: Cutting operation in which the rip fence
is used to cut with the grain, or across the widest width of the workpiece.

Additional Safety for Table Saws
Serious cuts, amputation, or death can occur from contact with rotating saw blade during
operation. Workpieces, broken blades, or flying particles thrown by blade can blind or strike
operators or bystanders with deadly force. To reduce the risk of these hazards, operator and
bystanders MUST completely heed the hazards and warnings below.
HAND & BODY POSITIONING. Keep hands
away from saw blade and out of blade path during operation, so they cannot accidentally slip
into blade. Only operate at front of machine and
always stand to side of blade path. Never reach
behind or over blade.
BLADE GUARD. The blade guard protects operator from rotating saw blade. Make sure blade
guard is installed, adjusted correctly, and used
for all possible “through cuts.” Promptly repair or
replace if damaged. Re-install immediately after
operations that require its removal.
RIVING KNIFE. Use riving knife for all “nonthrough cuts.” Make sure it is aligned and positioned correctly. Promptly repair or replace it if
damaged.
KICKBACK. Kickback occurs when saw blade
ejects workpiece back toward operator. Know
how to reduce risk of kickback, and learn how to
protect yourself if it does occur.
FEEDING WORKPIECE. Feeding workpiece
incorrectly increases risk of kickback. Always
allow blade to reach full speed before cutting,
feed workpiece from front of saw, making sure
workpiece is flat against table and a fence, miter
gauge, or other guide is used to feed workpiece
in a straight line. Feed cuts through to completion.
Never start saw with workpiece touching blade
or pull workpiece from behind blade. Never back
workpiece out of cut, move it sideways, or perform
a “freehand” operation. Never plunge cut.
PUSH STICKS/PUSH BLOCKS. To reduce risk
of accidental blade contact, use push sticks/
push blocks whenever possible. In event of an
accident, these will often take damage that would
have occurred to hands/fingers.
-10-
FENCE. To reduce risk of kickback, make sure
fence remains properly adjusted and parallel with
blade. Always lock fence before using.
CUT-OFF PIECES. To avoid risk of injury due to
blade contact, turn saw OFF and allow blade to
completely stop before removing cut-off pieces
near blade or trapped between blade and table
insert. Never use your hands to move cut-off
pieces away from blade while saw is running.
BLADE ADJUSTMENTS. Adjusting blade height
or tilt during operation increases risk of crashing blade and sending metal fragments flying
with deadly force at operator or bystanders. Only
adjust blade height and tilt when blade is completely stopped and saw is OFF.
CHANGING BLADES. Accidental startup while
changing saw blade can result in serious injury.
To reduce risk of accidental blade contact, always
disconnect power before changing blades.
DAMAGED SAW BLADES. Damaged saw blade
teeth can become deadly projectiles. Never use
blades that have been dropped or damaged.
DADO AND RABBET OPERATIONS. Dado and
rabbeting operations require special attention
since they must be performed with blade guard
removed, which increases risk of blade contact.
DO NOT attempt dado or rabbeting operations
without first reading these sections in this manual.
CUTTING CORRECT MATERIAL. Cutting metal,
glass, stone, tile, etc., increases risk of operator
injury due to kickback or flying particles. Only cut
natural and man-made wood products, laminatecovered wood products, and some plastics. Never
cut materials not intended for this saw.
Model G0771Z (Mfd. Since 09/16)
Preventing Kickback
•
Below are ways to avoid the most common
causes of kickback:
•
Only cut workpieces with at least one smooth
and straight edge. DO NOT cut warped,
cupped or twisted wood.
•
Keep the blade guard installed and working
correctly for all through cuts.
•
Never attempt freehand cuts. If the workpiece
is not fed parallel with the blade, kickback will
likely occur. Always use the rip fence or miter
gauge to support the workpiece.
•
•
•
•
•
•
Make sure the spreader or riving knife is
aligned with the blade. A misaligned spreader
or riving knife can cause the workpiece to
catch or bind, increasing the chance of kickback.
Ensure that the rip fence locks parallel with
the blade; otherwise, the chances of kickback
are extreme.
The spreader or riving knife maintains the
kerf in the workpiece, reducing the chance of
kickback. Always use the riving knife for all
non-through operations, unless a dado blade
is installed. Always use the spreader with the
blade guard for all through cuts.
Feed cuts through to completion. Anytime
you stop feeding a workpiece in the middle
of a cut, the chance of kickback is greatly
increased.
Keep the blade guard installed and in good
working order. Only remove it when performing non-through cuts and immediately
re-install the blade guard when finished.
Remember, always use the riving knife for all
non-through operations, unless a dado blade
is installed.
Make multiple, shallow passes when performing a non-through cut. Making a deep
non-through cut will greatly increase the
chance of kickback.
Model G0771Z (Mfd. Since 09/16)
Never move the workpiece backwards or try
to back it out of a cut while the blade is moving. If you cannot complete a cut for some
reason, stop the saw motor and allow the
blade to completely stop before backing the
workpiece out. Promptly fix the condition that
prevented you from completing the cut before
starting the saw again.
Protecting Yourself
From Kickback
Even if you know how to prevent kickback, it
may still happen. Here are some ways to protect yourself if kickback DOES occur:
•
Stand to the side of the blade during every cut.
If kickback does occur, the thrown workpiece
usually travels directly in front of the blade.
•
Wear safety glasses or a face shield. In the
event of kickback, your eyes and face are the
most vulnerable parts of your body.
•
Never, for any reason, place your hand
behind the blade. Should kickback occur,
your hand will be pulled into the blade, which
could cause amputation.
•
Use a push stick to keep your hands farther
away from the moving blade. If kickback
occurs, the push stick will most likely take the
damage your hand would have received.
•
Use featherboards or anti-kickback devices
to assist with feeding and prevent or slow
down kickback.
Statistics show that most common accidents among table saw users can be linked
to kickback. Kickback is typically defined as
the high-speed expulsion of stock from the

the danger of the operator or others in the
area being struck by the flying stock, it is
often the case that the operator’s hands are
pulled into the blade during kickback.

SECTION 2: POWER SUPPLY
Availability
Circuit Information
Before installing the machine, consider the availability and proximity of the required power supply
circuit. If an existing circuit does not meet the
requirements for this machine, a new circuit must
be installed. To minimize the risk of electrocution,
fire, or equipment damage, installation work and
electrical wiring must be done by an electrician or
qualified service personnel in accordance with all
applicable codes and standards.
A power supply circuit includes all electrical
equipment between the breaker box or fuse panel
in the building and the machine. The power supply circuit used for this machine must be sized to
safely handle the full-load current drawn from the
machine for an extended period of time. (If this
machine is connected to a circuit protected by
fuses, use a time delay fuse marked D.)
Electrocution, fire, shock,
or equipment damage
may occur if machine is
not properly grounded
and connected to power
supply.
Full-Load Current Rating
The full-load current rating is the amperage a
machine draws at 100% of the rated output power.
On machines with multiple motors, this is the
amperage drawn by the largest motor or sum of all
motors and electrical devices that might operate
at one time during normal operations.
Full-Load Current Rating at 120V...... 15 Amps
Full-Load Current Rating at 240V..... 7.5 Amps
The full-load current is not the maximum amount
of amps that the machine will draw. If the machine
is overloaded, it will draw additional amps beyond
the full-load rating.
If the machine is overloaded for a sufficient length
of time, damage, overheating, or fire may result—
especially if connected to an undersized circuit.
To reduce the risk of these hazards, avoid overloading the machine during operation and make
sure it is connected to a power supply circuit that
meets the specified circuit requirements.
-12-
For your own safety and protection of
property, consult an electrician if you are
unsure about wiring practices or electrical
codes in your area.
Note: Circuit requirements in this manual apply to
a dedicated circuit—where only one machine will
be running on the circuit at a time. If machine will
be connected to a shared circuit where multiple
machines may be running at the same time, consult an electrician or qualified service personnel to
ensure circuit is properly sized for safe operation.
Circuit Requirements for 120V
This machine is prewired to operate on a power
supply circuit that has a verified ground and meets
the following requirements:
Nominal Voltage......................................... 120V
Cycle...........................................................60 Hz
Phase............................................ Single-Phase
Power Supply Circuit.......................... 20 Amps
Plug/Receptacle.............................. NEMA 5-15
Circuit Requirements for 240V

Phase............................................ Single-Phase
Power Supply Circuit.......................... 15 Amps
Plug/Receptacle.............................. NEMA 6-15
Model G0771Z (Mfd. Since 09/16)
Grounding Requirements
This machine MUST be grounded. In the event
of certain malfunctions or breakdowns, grounding
reduces the risk of electric shock by providing a
path of least resistance for electric current.
For 120V operation: This machine is equipped
with a power cord that has an equipment-grounding wire and a grounding plug (see following figure). The plug must only be inserted into a matching receptacle (outlet) that is properly installed
and grounded in accordance with all local codes
and ordinances.

Improper connection of the equipment-grounding
wire can result in a risk of electric shock. The
wire with green insulation (with or without yellow
stripes) is the equipment-grounding wire. If repair
or replacement of the power cord or plug is necessary, do not connect the equipment-grounding
wire to a live (current carrying) terminal.
Check with a qualified electrician or service personnel if you do not understand these grounding
requirements, or if you are in doubt about whether
the tool is properly grounded. If you ever notice
that a cord or plug is damaged or worn, disconnect it from power, and immediately replace it with
a new one.
Extension Cords
We do not recommend using an extension cord
with this machine. If you must use an extension
cord, only use it if absolutely necessary and only
on a temporary basis.
SHOCK HAZARD!
Two-prong outlets do not meet the grounding
requirements for this machine. Do not modify
or use an adapter on the plug provided—if
it will not fit the outlet, have a qualified
electrician install the proper outlet with a
verified ground.
For 240V operation: The plug specified under
“Circuit Requirements for 240V” on the previous page has a grounding prong that must be
attached to the equipment-grounding wire on
the included power cord. The plug must only be
inserted into a matching receptacle (see following
figure) that is properly installed and grounded in
accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
Model G0771Z (Mfd. Since 09/16)
Extension cords cause voltage drop, which can
damage electrical components and shorten motor
life. Voltage drop increases as the extension cord
size gets longer and the gauge size gets smaller
(higher gauge numbers indicate smaller sizes).
Any extension cord used with this machine must
be in good condition and contain a ground wire
and matching plug/receptacle. Additionally, it must
meet the following size requirements:
Minimum Gauge Size............................12 AWG
Maximum Length (Shorter is Better).......50 ft.

Cleanup
The unpainted surfaces of your machine are
coated with a heavy-duty rust preventative that
prevents corrosion during shipment and storage.
This rust preventative works extremely well, but it
will take a little time to clean.
Be patient and do a thorough job cleaning your
machine. The time you spend doing this now will
give you a better appreciation for the proper care
of your machine's unpainted surfaces.
There are many ways to remove this rust preventative, but the following steps work well in a wide
variety of situations. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions with any cleaning product you
use and make sure you work in a well-ventilated
area to minimize exposure to toxic fumes.
Before cleaning, gather the following:
•
Disposable rags
•
Cleaner/degreaser (WD•40 works well)
•
Safety glasses & disposable gloves
•
Plastic paint scraper (optional)
Basic steps for removing rust preventative:
1.
Put on safety glasses.
2.
Coat the rust preventative with a liberal
amount of cleaner/degreaser, then let it soak
for 5–10 minutes.
3.
Wipe off the surfaces. If your cleaner/degreaser is effective, the rust preventative will wipe
off easily. If you have a plastic paint scraper,
scrape off as much as you can first, then wipe
off the rest with the rag.
4.
Repeat Steps 2–3 as necessary until clean,
then coat all unpainted surfaces with a quality
metal protectant to prevent rust.

Site Considerations
Weight Load
Physical Environment
Refer to the Machine Data Sheet for the weight
of your machine. Make sure that the surface upon
which the machine is placed will bear the weight
of the machine, additional equipment that may be
installed on the machine, and the heaviest workpiece that will be used. Additionally, consider the
weight of the operator and any dynamic loading
that may occur when operating the machine.
The physical environment where the machine is
operated is important for safe operation and longevity of machine components. For best results,
operate this machine in a dry environment that is
free from excessive moisture, hazardous chemicals, airborne abrasives, or extreme conditions.
Extreme conditions for this type of machinery are
generally those where the ambient temperature
range exceeds 41°–104°F; the relative humidity
range exceeds 20%–95% (non-condensing); or
the environment is subject to vibration, shocks,
or bumps.
Space Allocation
Consider the largest size of workpiece that will
be processed through this machine and provide
enough space around the machine for adequate
operator material handling or the installation of
auxiliary equipment. With permanent installations,
leave enough space around the machine to open
or remove doors/covers as required by the maintenance and service described in this manual.
See below for required space allocation.
Children or untrained people
may be seriously injured by
this machine. Only install in an
access restricted location.
Electrical Installation
Place this machine near an existing power source.
Make sure all power cords are protected from
traffic, material handling, moisture, chemicals, or
other hazards. Make sure to leave enough space
around machine to disconnect power supply or
apply a lockout/tagout device, if required.
Lighting
Lighting around the machine must be adequate
enough that operations can be performed safely.
Shadows, glare, or strobe effects that may distract
or impede the operator must be eliminated.

Assembly
—If outside end of extension wing tilts down,
remove wing and place a strip of masking
tape along bottom edge of main table to
shim end of wing up (see Figure 16).
The machine must be fully assembled before it
can be operated. Before beginning the assembly
process, refer to Needed for Setup and gather all
listed items. To make sure the assembly process
goes smoothly, first clean all parts that have any
heavy-duty rust preventative applied by the factory (if applicable).
To assemble table saw:
1. Inspect extension wings and main table mating surfaces for burrs or foreign materials that
may inhibit assembly.
Figure 16. Masking tape location for tilting the
extension wing up.
—If outside end of extension wing tilts up,
remove wing and place a strip of masking tape along top edge of main table to
shim end of extension wing down (see
Figure 17).
For a correct fit, mating edges of table and
wings must be clean, smooth, and flat. If necessary, use a wire brush or file to remove any
flashing, dings, or high spots.
2. While a helper holds extension wings in
place, attach each wing flush with main table
using (3) M10-1.5 x 30 cap screws, 10mm
flat washers, and 10mm lock washers (see

This machine creates substantial amounts
of dust during operation. Breathing airborne dust on a regular basis can result in
permanent respiratory illness. Reduce your
risk by wearing a respirator and capturing
the dust with a dust collection system.
Recommended CFM at Dust Port: 400 CFM
Do not confuse this CFM recommendation with
the rating of the dust collector. To determine the
CFM at the dust port, you must consider these
variables: (1) CFM rating of the dust collector,
(2) hose type and length between the dust collector and the machine, (3) number of branches
or wyes, and (4) amount of other open lines
throughout the system. Explaining how to calculate these variables is beyond the scope of
this manual. Consult an expert or purchase a
good dust-collection "how-to" book.
To connect a dust-collection hose:
1. Fit 4" dust hose over dust port, as shown in
Figure 34, and secure in place with a hose
clamp.
2. Tug hose to make sure it does not come off.
Note: A tight fit is necessary for proper performance.

SECTION 4: OPERATIONS
Operation Overview
The purpose of this overview is to provide the novice machine operator with a basic understanding
of how the machine is used during operation, so
the machine controls/components discussed later
in this manual are easier to understand.
Due to the generic nature of this overview, it is
not intended to be an instructional guide. To learn
more about specific operations, read this entire
manual and seek additional training from experienced machine operators, and do additional
research outside of this manual by reading "howto" books, trade magazines, or websites.
To reduce your risk of
serious injury, read this
entire manual BEFORE
using machine.
To complete a typical operation, the operator
does the following:
1. Examines the workpiece to make sure it is
suitable for cutting.
2. Adjusts the blade tilt, if necessary, to the correct angle of the desired cut.
3. Adjusts the blade height approximately 1⁄4"
higher than the thickness of the workpiece.
4. Adjusts the fence to the desired width of cut,
then locks it in place.
5. Checks the outfeed side of the machine
for proper support and to make sure the
workpiece can safely pass all the way through
the blade without interference.
6. Puts on safety glasses, respirator, and hearing protection, and locates push sticks if
needed.
7. Starts the saw.
Eye injuries, respiratory problems, or hearing loss can occur while operating this
tool. Wear personal protective equipment to
reduce your risk from these hazards.
8. Feeds the workpiece all the way through the
blade while maintaining firm pressure on the
workpiece against the table and fence, and
keeping hands and fingers out of the blade
path and away from the blade.
9. Stops the machine immediately after a cut is
complete.
If you are not experienced with this type
of machine, WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND
that you seek additional training outside of
this manual. Read books/magazines or get
formal training before beginning any projects. Regardless of the content in this section, Grizzly Industrial will not be held liable
for accidents caused by lack of training.

Model G0771Z (Mfd. Since 09/16)
Workpiece
Inspection
Some workpieces are not safe to cut or may
require modification before they are safe to cut.
Before cutting, inspect all workpieces for the
following:
•
Material Type: This machine is intended for
cutting natural and man-made wood products, laminate-covered wood products, and
some plastics. Cutting drywall or cementious
backer board creates extremely fine dust
and may reduce the life of the bearings. This
machine is NOT designed to cut metal, glass,
stone, tile, etc.; cutting these materials with a
table saw may lead to injury.
•
Foreign Objects: Nails, staples, dirt, rocks
and other foreign objects are often embedded in wood. While cutting, these objects
can become dislodged and hit the operator,
cause kickback, or break the blade, which
might then fly apart. Always visually inspect
your workpiece for these items. If they can't
be removed, DO NOT cut the workpiece.
•
Large/Loose Knots: Loose knots can
become dislodged during the cutting operation. Large knots can cause kickback and
machine damage. Choose workpieces that
do not have large/loose knots or plan ahead
to avoid cutting through them.
•
Wet or "Green" Stock: Cutting wood with a
moisture content over 20% causes unnecessary wear on the blades, increases the risk of
kickback, and yields poor results.
•
Excessive Warping: Workpieces with excessive cupping, bowing, or twisting are dangerous to cut because they are unstable and
often unpredictable when being cut. DO NOT
use workpieces with these characteristics!
•
Minor Warping: Workpieces with slight cupping can be safely supported if the cupped
side is facing the table or the fence. On
the contrary, a workpiece supported on the
bowed side will rock during a cut and could
cause kickback or severe injury.
Model G0771Z (Mfd. Since 09/16)
Non-Through &
Through Cuts
Non-Through Cuts
A non-through cut is a sawing operation where
the blade does not protrude above the top face of
the wood stock, as shown in the Figure below.
Figure 36. Example of a non-through cut.
Examples of non-through cuts include dadoes
and rabbets. Non-through cuts have a higher risk
of injury from kickback because the blade guard
must be removed. However, the riving knife MUST
be installed because it still provides some protection. When making non-through cuts with a dado
blade, do not attempt to cut the full depth in one
pass. Instead, take multiple light passes to reduce
the load on the blade. A dado blade smaller than
10" will require removal of the riving knife, because
the riving knife will be higher than the blade.
-27-
Through Cuts
A through cut is a sawing operation in which the
workpiece is completely sawn through, as shown
in the Figure below. Examples of through cuts are
rip cuts, cross cuts, miter cuts, and beveled cuts.
The blade guard assembly MUST be used when
performing through cuts.
Blade Selection
This section on blade selection is by no means
comprehensive. Always follow the saw blade
manufacturer's recommendations to ensure safe
and efficient operation of your table saw.

increase the risk of kickback.
Dado Blades
Stacked Dado Blade (see below): Multiple
blades are stacked together to control the cutting
width. Stacked dado blades are more expensive
than wobble blades, but typically produce higher
quality results.
Wobble Dado Blade: A single blade mounted at
a slight angle on an arbor hub. The blade angle is
adjustable on the hub, and the width of the dado
cut is controlled by the angle setting of the blade.

Blade Installation
4. Install new blade, flange and arbor nut on
arbor, as shown in Figure 44, with upper
teeth facing front of the saw.
To reduce the risk of injury, always disconnect power to the saw before changing
blades. Since the blade is sharp, use extra
care and wear gloves when installing it.
To install a new blade:
1. DISCONNECT SAW FROM POWER!
2. Raise arbor all the way up, remove blade
guard (see Page 31), table insert (leave
Phillips head screws mounted in table throat),
and spreader/riving knife (see Page 31).
Note: Table insert is held in place by magnet.

Blade Guard
Assembly
The term "blade guard" refers to the assembly
that consists of the clear polycarbonate shield, the
spreader, and the anti-kickback pawls on each
side of the spreader (see Figure 45). Each of
these components has important safety functions
during the operation of the saw.
Spreader/Riving Knife
The spreader/riving knife is a metal plate that
prevents the newly cut kerf of the workpiece from
pinching the back side of the blade, causing kickback.
The spreader/riving knife also acts as a barrier behind the blade to shield hands from being
pulled into the blade if a kickback occurs.
In order to work properly, the spreader
cannot be bent or misaligned with the blade.
If the spreader accidentally gets bent, take
the time to straighten it or just replace it.
Using a bent or misaligned spreader will
increase the risk of kickback! Refer to Page
64 to check or adjust alignment if necessary.

Guard
Installing Blade Guard & Spreader/
Riving Knife
The clear polycarbonate guard allows the operator to watch the blade cut the workpiece during
operation. This guard is designed to lift as the
workpiece is pushed into the blade and remain in
contact with the workpiece throughout the entire
cut.
1. DISCONNECT SAW FROM POWER!
The guard reduces risk of injury by providing a
barrier around the blade that prevents accidental
contact and contains flying wood chips.
4. Insert lower set of holes on spreader/riving
knife into bracket slot, and tighten lock lever
to secure spreader (see Figure 46).
To ensure that the guard does its job effectively,
the guard must always be in the downward position against the table during idle operation, and
the hinge mechanism must be maintained in good
working condition so the guard can freely pivot
up and down to accommodate the height of the
workpiece and return to the table surface.
2. Remove table insert, but leave Phillips head
screws mounted in table throat.
3. Raise blade all the way up.
Note: Do not insert upper set of holes on
spreader into bracket slot. Doing so will result
in improper installation of blade guard.

5. Re-install table insert (refer to Table/Dado
Insert Adjustment on Page 70).
11. Swing one side of blade guard up and out of
the way.
6. Tug spreader upward to verify it is locked.
12. While lifting up on right spreader pawl, place
a straightedge against blade and spreader,
making sure straightedge does not touch a
blade tooth.
7. Push guard lever forward, as shown in
Figure 47.
8. Insert rear pin on blade guard into rear slot
of spreader, then push down on blade guard
assembly so forward pin slides into forward
slot of spreader (see Figure 47).
When properly aligned, spreader/riving knife
will be in "Alignment Zone," shown in Figure
49, and will be parallel with blade.

10. Tug upward on blade guard assembly to
verify that it is locked into spreader.
When properly installed, the blade guard
should be set up similar to Figure 48. It
should pivot freely up and down and return to
the table in the resting position. It should also
swing up high enough to accommodate the
workpiece.
Anti-Kickback Pawls
The anti-kickback pawls allow the workpiece
to travel in only one direction. If the workpiece
moves backwards, such as during a kickback, the
pawls will dig into the workpiece to slow or stop it.
To work properly, the pawls must return to their
resting position after pivoting, shown in Figure 50.
Pawl
Figure 50. Pawls in resting position.
Figure 48. Blade guard installed.
-32-
Model G0771Z (Mfd. Since 09/16)
If the pawls fail to return to the resting position, the
pivot area may need to be cleaned or the spring
may have been dislodged or broken and will need
to be fixed/replaced.
Enabling Pawls
To enable the pawls, re-install retaining spring,
pawls, washers, cap screw, and locking hex nut
onto blade guard assembly. Do not overtighten.
Disabling Pawls
You might disable the pawls if you are concerned
about them scratching a delicate workpiece, or
if you believe that they will obstruct a narrow
workpiece and cause feeding difficulty or loss of
control. Use your best judgment before retracting
the pawls, as they are provided for your safety.
When to Use the Blade Guard
We do not recommend disabling the pawls
during normal operations unless absolutely
necessary. In most situations, disabling the
pawls will increase your risk of serious personal injury in the event of a kickback.
The pawls are sharp and can lacerate fingers
or hands. Use caution, and wear leather
gloves when handling the pawls to reduce
the risk of injury.
To disable pawls:
1. DISCONNECT SAW FROM POWER!
2. Remove cap screw, locking hex nut, washers, pawls, and retaining spring from blade
guard assembly (see Figure 51).
The blade guard assembly MUST always be
installed on the saw for all normal through cuts
(those where the blade cuts all the way through
the thickness of the workpiece). If the blade
guard is removed for specific operations, always
immediately replace it after those operations are
complete.
When Not to Use the Blade Guard
The blade guard cannot be used on any nonthrough cuts (those in which the blade does
not cut all the way through the thickness of the
workpiece).
IMPORTANT: Whenever the blade guard cannot be used, the spreader/riving knife must be
installed in the riving knife position (refer to Riving
Knife on this page).
Sometimes the blade guard or its components
can get in the way when cutting very narrow
workpieces or other specialized cuts. Because
the blade guard is provided to decrease your risk
of injury, it should not be used if it gets in the way
of making a safe cut. Use good judgment!
Riving Knife
The spreader also functions as a riving knife,
which works in the same manner as the spreader,
but is used for non-through cuts. It is a metal plate
that prevents a newly cut workpiece from pinching
the backside of the blade and causing kickback.
Minimum 1mm
Maximum 5mm
Height Difference
Figure 51. Pawls removed.
Figure 52. Example of height difference between

Model G0771Z (Mfd. Since 09/16)
-33-
Similar to the spreader, the riving knife acts as
a barrier behind the blade to reduce the risk of
hands being pulled into the blade if kickback
occurs.
When used as a riving knife, the spreader/riving knife must be kept within the range shown in
Figure 53. For that reason, a 10" blade is required
for operations that use a riving knife.
To ensure that the riving knife works safely, it MUST be aligned with and correctly
adjusted to the blade. Refer to Page 64 to
check or adjust the riving knife alignment.
5. Re-install table insert (refer to Page 70).
6. Tug upward on top of spreader/riving knife to
verify it is locked.
Top Distance
Minimum 3mm
Maximum 8mm
When to Use the Riving Knife
Use the riving knife for all non-through cuts made
with a standard table saw blade (i.e., dadoes or
rabbet cuts, and when using a tenoning jig), or
when using a 10" diameter dado blade.
Bottom Distance
Minimum 3mm
Maximum 8mm
Figure 53. Example of allowable top and bottom
distances between riving knife and blade.
Also, use the riving knife for those special operations where the blade guard or its components
get in the way of safe operation, such as with very
narrow cuts.
To install riving knife:
When Not to Use the Riving Knife
1. DISCONNECT SAW FROM POWER!
2. Remove table insert, but leave Phillips head
screws mounted in table throat.
Note: Table insert is held in place by magnet.
3. Raise blade all the way up.
4. Insert upper set of holes on spreader/riving
knife into bracket slot and tighten lock lever to
secure spreader/riving knife (see Figure 54).
Spreader/
Riving Knife
Do not use the riving knife with a dado blade
that has a diameter smaller than 10" in diameter.
Otherwise, the riving knife height will exceed the
blade height and the workpiece will hit the riving
knife during the cut, forcing the operator into a
dangerous situation of trying to turn the saw off
with the workpiece stuck halfway through the cut.
In addition, although it is possible to use the riving knife for through cutting operations, the blade
guard assembly offers far more injury protection
and risk reduction than the riving knife. Therefore,
we strongly recommend that you use the blade
guard assembly for through cuts.

Ripping
9. Use a push stick to feed workpiece through
saw blade, as shown in Figure 55, until
workpiece is completely beyond saw blade.
"Ripping" means cutting with the grain of a natural
wood workpiece. In man-made materials such as
MDF or plywood, ripping simply means cutting
lengthwise.
Serious injury can be caused by kickback.
Kickback is a high-speed ejection of stock
from the table saw toward an operator.
The operator or bystanders may be struck
by flying stock, or the operator’s hands
can be pulled into the blade during kickback.
Figure 55. Typical ripping operation.
To make a rip cut:
1. Review Preventing Kickback on Page 11
and take necessary precautions to reduce
likelihood of kickback.
2. If using natural wood, joint one long edge of
workpiece on a jointer.
Turn saw OFF and allow blade to come to a
complete stop before removing cutoff piece.
Failure to follow this warning could result in
severe lacerations or amputation.
3. DISCONNECT SAW FROM POWER!
4. Ensure that blade guard/spreader is installed.
5. Set fence to desired width of cut on scale.
6. Adjust blade height so highest saw tooth protrudes no more than 1⁄4" above workpiece.
7. Set up safety devices such as featherboards
or other anti-kickback devices, making sure
no safety devices are contacting blade.
Keep blade guard installed and in down
position. Failure to do this could result in
serious personal injury or death.
8. Plug saw into power source, turn it ON, and
allow it to reach full speed.
Note: Jointed edge of workpiece must slide
against fence during cutting operation.
Model G0771Z (Mfd. Since 09/16)
-35-
Crosscutting
Miter Cuts
"Crosscutting" means cutting across the grain of
a natural wood workpiece, usually with a miter
saw. In other man-made materials, such as MDF
or plywood, crosscutting means cutting across the
width of the workpiece.
A miter is an angled crosscut. Miters are usually
cut in the same manner as crosscuts, using the
miter gauge and a predetermined mark on the
workpiece.
To make a crosscut using miter gauge:
1. DISCONNECT SAW FROM POWER!
2. Ensure that blade guard/spreader is installed.
3. To avoid kickback, move rip fence aside and
position miter gauge, adjusted to 90°, in a
miter slot.
4. Adjust blade height so teeth protrude no
more than 1⁄4" above workpiece.
5. Slide miter gauge near blade and adjust
workpiece so blade will cut on waste side of
line.
To perform a miter cut:
1. DISCONNECT SAW FROM POWER!
2. Ensure that blade guard/spreader is installed.
3. Determine angle of cut. If angle needs to be
very precise, use a protractor to set miter
gauge to blade.
4. Place face of miter gauge against edge
of workpiece and place bar across face of
workpiece. Use bar as a guide to mark your
cut, as shown in Figure 57.
6. Plug in table saw, turn it ON, and allow it to
reach full speed.
7. Hold workpiece firmly against face of miter
gauge (as shown in Figure 56), and ease it
through blade until workpiece is completely
past saw blade.
Figure 57. Example of marking miter line.
5. Place miter gauge back into slot and hold
workpiece firmly against miter gauge body.
Slide miter gauge near blade and adjust
workpiece so blade will cut on waste side of
line.
Figure 56. Typical crosscutting operation.
6. Proceed to make cut in same manner as
described in Crosscutting instructions.
Turn saw OFF and allow blade to come to a
complete stop before removing cutoff piece.
Failure to follow this warning could result in
severe lacerations or amputation.
-36-
Model G0771Z (Mfd. Since 09/16)
Blade Tilt/Bevel Cuts
When the blade tilt adjustment bolts are properly
adjusted (as described on Page 60), the blade tilt
handwheel allows the operator to tilt the blade to
the left, between 0° and 45°. This is used most
often when cutting bevels, compound miters, or
chamfers. Figure 58 shows an example of the
blade when tilted to 45°.
The Model G0771Z can accommodate dado
blades up to 10" in diameter. However, you MUST
install the included riving knife while using a 10"
diameter dado blade, as it provides a barrier
behind the blade and reduces the risk of hands
being pulled into the blade if kickback occurs.
DO NOT use the riving knife if you install a dado
blade smaller than 10" in diameter. Otherwise,
the riving knife height will exceed the blade height
and the workpiece will hit the riving knife during
the cut, forcing the operator into a dangerous
situation and trying to turn the saw off with the
workpiece stuck halfway through the cut.
Installing a Dado Blade
1. DISCONNECT SAW FROM POWER!
2. Remove table insert, blade guard assembly,
spreader/riving knife, and saw blade.
3. Attach and adjust dado blade system according to dado blade manufacturer’s instructions.
Figure 58. Example of blade tilted to 45° for
bevel cutting (blade guard only removed for
clarity.
Dado Cutting
Commonly used in furniture joinery, a dado is a
straight channel cut in the face of the workpiece.
Dadoes are "non-through" cuts that can be made
with a dado blade or a standard saw blade. The
Figure below shows a cutaway view of a dado cut
being made with a dado blade.
Dado Blade

Fence
Figure 59. Example of a dado being cut with a

Model G0771Z (Mfd. Since 09/16)
4. Install included dado table insert.
DO NOT make through cuts with a dado
blade. The extra width of a dado blade
will increase the risk of kickback during a
through cut. Dado blades are only intended
for non-through cuts. Failure to heed this
warning could result in serious injury.
Never try to cut a warped board by holding it down against the table. If kickback
occurs, your hand could be pulled into the
blade, resulting in accidental contact with
the rotating blade, causing severe lacerations or amputation.
Cutting Dadoes with a Dado Blade
Because dado blades are much wider than standard blades, they place a greater amount of force
against the workpiece when cutting. This additional force increases the risk of kickback, requiring
the operator to take additional steps when cutting
to keep their injury risk at an acceptable level.
-37-
To cut a dado with a dado blade:
Dado blades have a higher risk of kickback
than normal blades because their larger size
applies stronger forces to the workpiece.
This risk increases relative to the depth and
width of the cut. To minimize your risk of
serious personal injury, ensure that stock
is flat and straight, and make multiple light
cuts (rather than one deep cut) to achieve
the desired cutting depth.
The Figure below demonstrates the sequential
process of making multiple, light cuts that get
progressively deeper. The actual number of cuts
used should be determined by workpiece hardness, total dado depth, and feed rate. In general, if
you hear the motor slow down during the cut, you
are cutting too deep or feeding too fast.

Rabbet Cutting
Commonly used in furniture joinery, a rabbet is an
L-shaped groove cut in the edge of the workpiece.
Rabbets can be cut with either a dado blade or a
standard saw blade.
Rabbet cutting along the edge of a workpiece with
a dado blade requires a sacrificial fence (Figure
64). Make the sacrificial fence the same length as
the fence and 3⁄4" thick. Attach it to the fence with
screws or clamps, making sure they are all secure
and tight. Raise the blade into the sacrificial fence
to the height needed.

When using a dado blade, the included dado
table insert must be installed and used during rabbeting operations.
Dado blades have a higher risk of kickback
than normal blades because their larger size
applies stronger forces to the workpiece.
This risk increases relative to the depth and
width of the cut. To minimize your risk of
serious personal injury, ensure that stock
is flat and straight, and make multiple light
cuts (rather than one deep cut) to achieve
the desired cutting depth.

Cutting Rabbets with a Standard
Blade
Always use push sticks, featherboards,
push paddles and other safety accessories
whenever possible to increase control and
reduce your risk of injury during operations
that require the blade guard be removed
from the saw. ALWAYS replace the blade
guard after dadoing is complete.
A ripping blade is typically the best blade to use
for cutting rabbets when using a standard blade
because it removes sawdust very efficiently. (See
Page 28 for blade details.) Also, a sacrificial fence
is not required when cutting rabbets with a standard blade.
To cut rabbets with a standard blade:

so you can clearly identify intended cut while
it is laying flat on saw table.

Resawing
Resawing operations require proper procedures to avoid serious injury and prevent kickback. Any tilting or movement of
workpiece away from fence will likely cause
kickback. Be certain that stock is flat and
straight. Failure to follow these warnings
could result in serious personal injury or
amputation.

DO NOT place a tall board on edge to perform a rabbet cut with a standard blade.
Workpieces that are too tall to properly support with fence can easily shift during operation and cause kickback. Instead, place
stock flat on saw and perform rabbet cut
with a dado blade, as instructed on Page 39.
6. Reconnect saw to power source, then perform cut.
7. Lay workpiece flat on table, as shown in
Figure 67, adjust saw blade height to intersect with first cut, then perform second cut to
complete rabbet.
Blade
Workpiece
Fence
Resawing is the process of cutting a thick piece
of stock into one or more thinner pieces. Although
resawing can be done with a table saw, we
strongly recommend that you use a bandsaw
instead.
A bandsaw is the ideal machine for resawing, and
resawing with one is fairly easy and safe. A table
saw is not intended for resawing, and resawing
with one is difficult and more dangerous than a
bandsaw due to the increased risk of kickback
from binding and deep cuts, and the increased
risk of injury from having to remove the guard.
If you insist on resawing with a table saw, DO NOT
do so without using a resaw barrier and wearing a
full face shield. The following instructions describe
how to build a resaw barrier and add an auxiliary
fence to your standard fence, to reduce the risk
injury from resawing on a table saw.
Note: To determine the maximum resawing height
for this table saw, find the maximum blade height,
then double it and subtract 1⁄ 8".

rabbet.

Making Resaw Barrier
Making Auxiliary Fence
When resawing, the resaw barrier acts in tandem
with the rip fence to provide tall support for the
workpiece. This minimizes the probability of it
binding against the blade and causing kickback.
An auxiliary fence is necessary if you are resawing
a workpiece that is taller than it is wide. The fence
should be no less than 1⁄2" shorter than the board
to be resawn.

Resawing Operations
The table saw motor is pushed to its limits when
resawing. If the motor starts to bog down, slow
down your feed rate. Motor overloading and blade
wear can be reduced by using a ripping blade.
Ripping blades are designed to clear the sawdust
quickly.
5. Place workpiece against auxiliary fence and
slide resaw barrier against workpiece, as
shown in Figure 72. Now clamp resaw barrier to top of table saw at both ends.

You may experience kickback during this
procedure. Stand to the side of the blade
and wear safety glasses and a full face
shield to prevent injury when resawing.
To perform resawing operations:
1. DISCONNECT SAW FROM POWER!
2. Remove standard table insert and blade
guard assembly.

8. Plug in table saw, turn it ON, and use a push
stick or push block to feed workpiece through
blade, using a slow and steady feed rate.
Note: We recommend making a series of
light cuts that get progressively deeper, to
reduce the chance of stalling the motor.
9. Flip workpiece end for end, keeping same
side against fence, and run workpiece through
blade.
10. Repeat Steps 7–9 until blade is close to half
the height of board to be resawn. The ideal
completed resaw cut will leave a 1⁄8" connection when resawing is complete as shown in
Figure 73 on Page 44. Leaving a 1⁄8" connection will reduce risk of kickback.
The danger of kickback increases relative to
the depth of a cut. Reduce the risk of kickback by making multiple passes to achieve
the desired depth of cut. Failure to follow
these warnings could result in serious personal injury.
Always use push sticks or push paddles to
increase safety and control during operations which require that the blade guard
and spreader must be removed from the
saw. ALWAYS replace the blade guard after
resawing is complete.
11. Turn OFF table saw, then separate parts of
workpiece and hand plane remaining ridge to
remove it.
12. When finished resawing, remove resaw barrier and auxiliary fence, then re-install blade
guard/spreader or riving knife and standard
table insert.

SECTION 5: SHOP-MADE SAFETY
ACCESSORIES
Featherboards
Easily made from scrap stock, featherboards
provide an added degree of protection against
kickback, especially when used together with
push sticks. They also maintain pressure on the
workpiece to keep it against the fence or table
while cutting, which makes the operation easier
and safer because the cut can be completed without the operator’s hands getting near the blade.
The angled ends and flexibility of the fingers allow
the workpiece to move in only one direction.
Making a Featherboard
We recommend using a bandsaw for making fingers in the next step because it tends
to be safer. A table saw can be used, but it
will over-cut the underside of the ends, produce a thicker kerf, and require you to stop
the blade half-way through the cut, which
can be dangerous.
3. Make a series of end cuts with the grain 3⁄8"–
1
⁄4" apart and 2"–3" long, as shown in Figure
74 (A). Alternatively, start cuts at 2"-3" deep,
then make them progressively deeper, as
shown in Figure 74 (B).
This sub-section covers the two basic types of
featherboards: 1) Those secured by clamps, and
2) those secured with the miter slot.

To make a featherboard:
1. Cut a hardwood board approximately 3⁄4" thick
to size. Length and width of board can vary
according to your design. Most featherboards
are 10"–28" long and 3"–6" wide. Make sure
wood grain runs parallel with length of featherboard, so fingers you will create in Step 3
will bend without breaking.
2. Cut a 30º angle at one end of board.

IMPORTANT: Cuts made across grain result in
weak fingers that easily break when flexed. When
made correctly, fingers should withstand flexing
from moderate pressure. To test finger flexibility,
push firmly on ends with your thumb. If fingers do
not flex, they are likely too thick (cuts are too far
apart).
Only Steps 1–3 are required to make a
clamp-mounted featherboard. Refer to Page
47 for instructions on clamping.
Model G0771Z (Mfd. Since 09/16)
4. Rout a 1⁄ 4"–3⁄ 8" wide slot 4"–5" long in
workpiece and 1"–2" from short end of featherboard (see Figure 75).

a wing nut or a star knob (see Figure 77).
Congratulations! Your featherboard is complete.

Tip: Consider making miter bar longer for
larger featherboards—approximately half the
length of total featherboard—to support force
applied to the featherboard during use.
6. Drill a 1⁄4" hole in center of bar, then countersink bottom to fit a 1⁄4"-20 flat head screw.

(Side View)
Figure 77. Assembling miter slot featherboard
components.
Note: The routed slot, countersink hole, and
flat head screw are essential for miter bar to
clamp into miter slot. When wing nut is tightened, it will draw flat head screw upward into
countersunk hole. This will spread sides of
miter bar and force them into walls of miter
slot, locking featherboard in place.
Tip: The length of the flat head screw depends
on thickness of featherboard—though 11⁄2" to
2" lengths usually work.
Now, proceed to Mounting Featherboard in
Miter Slot on Page 48.

5. Check featherboard by pushing it with your
thumb to ensure it is secure.
—­If featherboard moves, tighten clamp

6. Optional: If cutting long workpieces, it may
be beneficial to use a second featherboard
attached to fence to keep board firmly against
table while feeding.
4. Position fingered edge of featherboard
against edge of workpiece, so that all fingers
contact workpiece. Slide featherboard toward
blade until first finger is nearly even with end
of workpiece, which should be 1" away from
blade.
5. Double check workpiece and featherboard
to ensure they are properly positioned, as
described in Step 4. Then secure featherboard to table. Check featherboard by hand
to make sure it is tight.
-48-
Note: The featherboard should be placed
firmly enough against workpiece to keep it
against fence but not so tight that it is difficult
to feed workpiece.
Model G0771Z (Mfd. Since 09/16)
Push Sticks
Supporting: A second push stick can be used to
keep the workpiece firmly against the fence while
cutting. When using a push stick in this manner,
only apply pressure before the blade; otherwise,
pushing the workpiece against or behind the
blade will increase the risk of kickback (see "Push
Stick Prohibition Zone" in Figure 80 below).
When used correctly, push sticks reduce the risk
of injury by keeping hands away from the blade
while cutting. In the event of an accident, a push
stick can also absorb damage that would have
otherwise happened to hands or fingers.
Push Stick
Prohibition
Zone
Using a Push Stick
Use push sticks whenever your hands will get
within 12" of the blade. To maintain control when
cutting large workpieces, start the cut by feeding
with your hands then use push sticks to finish
the cut, so your hands are not on the end of the
workpiece as it passes through the blade.

Push Blocks
The notched end of the push block is then used
to push the workpiece the rest of the way through
the cut, keeping the operator's hands at a safe
distance from the blade. A push stick is often
used at the same time in the other hand to support the workpiece during the cut (see Using a
Push Stick on previous page).
When used correctly, a push block reduces the
risk of injury by keeping hands away from the

Note: We recommend cutting hardwood
board oversize, then jointing and planing it
to correct size to make sure board is square
and flat. Only use furniture-grade plywood or
kiln-dried hardwood to prevent warping.
There are designs for hundreds of specialty jigs
that can be found in books, trade magazines, and
on the internet. These types of jigs can greatly
improve the safety and consistency of cuts. They
are particularly useful during production runs
when dozens or hundreds of the same type of cut
need to be made.

Outfeed & Support
Tables
One of the best accessories for improving the
safety and ease of using a table saw is simply placing a large table (outfeed table) behind the saw to
catch the workpiece (see Figure 92). Additionally,
another table to the left of the saw (support table)
can also help support large workpieces so they
can be cut safely and accurately.

SECTION 7: MAINTENANCE
To reduce risk of shock or
accidental startup, always
disconnect machine from
power before adjustments,
maintenance, or service.
Schedule
For optimum performance from your machine,
follow this maintenance schedule and refer to any
specific instructions given in this section.
Daily Check:
• Loose mounting bolts.
• Damaged saw blade.
• Worn or damaged wires.
• Any other unsafe condition.
Cleaning &
Protecting
Cleaning the saw is relatively easy. Vacuum
excess wood chips and sawdust, and wipe off the
remaining dust with a dry cloth. If any resin has
built up, use a resin-dissolving cleaner to remove
it.
Protect the unpainted cast-iron table by wiping it
clean after every use—this ensures moisture from
wood dust does not remain on the bare metal
surface. Keep the table rust-free with regular
applications of products like G96 ® Gun Treatment,

Lubrication
It is essential to clean components before lubricating them because dust and chips build up on
lubricated components and make them hard to
move. Simply adding more grease to them will not
yield smooth moving components.
Clean the components in this section with mineral spirits or other oil/grease solvent cleaner and
shop rags.
Worm Gear, Bull Gear & Leadscrew
Clean away any built up grime and debris from the
worm gear, bull gear, and leadscrew (see Figures
103–104) with a wire brush, rags, and mineral
spirits. Allow the components to dry, then apply a
thin coat of white lithium grease.
Bull Gear
If you thoroughly clean the components in this
section before lubricating them, the result will
be silky smooth movement when turning the
handwheels, which will result in much higher
enjoyment on your part!
Worm Gear
The following are the main components that
need to be lubricated:

Miter Slot to Blade
Parallelism
Your table saw will give the best results if the
miter slot and the rip fence are adjusted parallel to the blade. If either of these are not exactly
parallel, your cuts and your finished work will be
lower in quality, but more importantly, the risk of
kickback will be increased.

Figure 126. Adjusting fence with a 1⁄64" offset.
The reason for a wider gap at the back of the
blade is to help prevent kickback and the blade
burning the workpiece because a workpiece may
be inconsistent. However, the trade-off is less
accurate cuts, and if the fence is placed on the
other side of blade for other table saw operations,
the potential of workpiece burning and kickback
can be increased. Whenever using a fence, make
sure that if an offset has been adjusted in the
fence alignment, you use the fence on the side of
the blade where the offset creates the wide gap.

Scrap Piece of Wood......................................... 1
To calibrate fence scale indicator windows:
The fence scale windows, shown in Figure 127,
can be calibrated with the fence scale by loosening the mounting screws and sliding them in the
desired direction.
The indicator window on the right side is used
when the fence is positioned to the right side of
the blade. The indicator window on the left is used
when the fence is positioned on the left side of
the blade.
IMPORTANT: Do not use the fence on the left
side of the blade if it has been purposely offset,
and is not adjusted parallel with blade.
1. Lock fence at 13" and cut your scrap piece of
wood.
2. Reposition and lock fence at 12", as indicated
by the scale.
3. Flip over your scrap piece of wood, placing
side that was cut in Step 1 against fence,
then make your cut.
4. Measure width of freshly cut workpiece at
both ends with a tape measure. Workpiece
width should be exactly 12" at front and back.
If it is not, then adjust indicator window to
match width of workpiece.

Tensioning &
Replacing Belt
Replacing Belt
1. DISCONNECT SAW FROM POWER!
2. Remove motor cover from side of machine.
The drive belt stretches slightly as the saw is used.
Most of the belt stretching will happen during the
first 16 hours of use, but it may continue with further use. If you notice that the saw is losing power
in the middle of a cut, the belt may be slipping,
and will need to be tensioned. If, upon inspection,
you find that the belt is cracked, frayed, or shows
other signs of excessive wear, replace it.
3. Set blade to 0° on tilt scale, then raise or
lower blade to approximately 2" above table.
Tools Needed
Qty
Open-End or Socket Wrench 13mm.................. 1
6. Install new belt onto pulleys. Lower motor
until it begins to pull blade down with it, then
retighten blade tension hex bolt.
Tensioning Belt
1. DISCONNECT SAW FROM POWER!
4. Loosen blade tension hex bolt, shown in
Figure 131.
5. Use blade height handwheel to raise motor
and loosen belt, then remove belt.
7. Re-install motor cover.
2. Remove motor cover from side of machine.

SECTION 9: WIRING
These pages are current at the time of printing. However, in the spirit of improvement, we may make changes to the electrical systems of future machines. Compare the manufacture date of your machine to the one
stated in this manual, and study this section carefully.
If there are differences between your machine and what is shown in this section, call Technical Support at
(570) 546-9663 for assistance BEFORE making any changes to the wiring on your machine. An updated
wiring diagram may be available. Note: Please gather the serial number and manufacture date of your
machine before calling. This information can be found on the main machine label.
Wiring Safety Instructions
SHOCK HAZARD. Working on wiring that is connected to a power source is extremely dangerous.
Touching electrified parts will result in personal
injury including but not limited to severe burns,
electrocution, or death. Disconnect the power
from the machine before servicing electrical components!
MODIFICATIONS. Modifying the wiring beyond
what is shown in the diagram may lead to unpredictable results, including serious injury or fire.
This includes the installation of unapproved aftermarket parts.
WIRE CONNECTIONS. All connections must
be tight to prevent wires from loosening during
machine operation. Double-check all wires disconnected or connected during any wiring task to
ensure tight connections.
CIRCUIT REQUIREMENTS. You MUST follow
the requirements at the beginning of this manual
when connecting your machine to a power source.
WIRE/COMPONENT DAMAGE. Damaged wires
or components increase the risk of serious personal injury, fire, or machine damage. If you notice
that any wires or components are damaged while
performing a wiring task, replace those wires or
components.
MOTOR WIRING. The motor wiring shown in
these diagrams is current at the time of printing
but may not match your machine. If you find this
to be the case, use the wiring diagram inside the
motor junction box.
CAPACITORS/INVERTERS. Some capacitors
and power inverters store an electrical charge for
up to 10 minutes after being disconnected from
the power source. To reduce the risk of being
shocked, wait at least this long before working on
capacitors.
EXPERIENCING DIFFICULTIES. If you are experiencing difficulties understanding the information
included in this section, contact our Technical
Support at (570) 546-9663.
