SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Read and follow all safety, operating and maintenance instructions. Failure to read and follow
these instructions could result in injury or death to you or others. Failure to read and follow these
instructions could also result in damage and/or reduced equipment life. In order to prevent injury, the
following safety precautions should be followed at all times!
READ OWNER'S MANUAL BEFORE USE
Before using this equipment, ensure that the person operating this machine has read and
understands all of the instructions in the manual. Precaution is the best insurance against accidents.
Read and understand all safety precautions, messages, warnings and hazard symbols. You are
responsible for your own safety.
ALWAYS USE SAFETY GLASSES
Safety glasses should always be worn when working around power tools. In addition, a face, dust
mask or respirator should be worn if a cutting operation is dusty. Everyday eyeglasses only have
impact resistant lenses and may not prevent eye injury - they are NOT safety glasses.
USE PROPER APPAREL
Do not wear loose clothing, gloves, neckties, rings, bracelets or other jewelry that may be caught in
moving parts. Non-slip footwear is recommended. Wear protective hair covering to contain long hair.
Hand protection (plastic gloves) and a shop bib are recommended during sawing to prevent stains to
clothing. Avoid prolonged exposure of skin to the sawing lubricant and wash skin immediately after
contact. Do not touch the work material until the motor is off and the machine has come to a complete
stop.
ALWAYS USE HEARING PROTECTION
To reduce the possibility of hearing loss, always use hearing protection when operating power
equipment.
KEEP GUARDS IN PLACE
In order to prevent injury, never operate the saw without the guards in place!
REMOVE ADJUSTING KEYS AND WRENCHES
Form a habit of checking to see that keys and adjusting wrenches are removed from the power tool
before
it is turned on.
ELECTRICAL SHOCK
Never touch electrical wires or motor components while the motor is running. Exposed, frayed or worn
electrical wiring and plugs can be sources of electrical shock that could cause severe injury or burns.
DISCONNECT TOOLS
Power tools should always be disconnected before servicing or when changing accessories, such as
blades, bits, cutters and the like.

disconnected when tool is not in use.
MAKE THE WORKSHOP KID-PROOF
Make the workshops kid-proof by using padlocks, master switches and by disconnecting all power
cords.
USE THE RIGHT TOOL
Do not force a tool or an attachment to do a job that it was not designed to do.
SECURE WORK
Clamps or a vise should be used to hold work whenever practical. Keeping your hands free to operate
a power tool is safer.
DO NOT FORCE THE TOOL
A power tool will do a better job and operate more safely at the feed rate for which it was designed.
USE THE RIGHT TOOL TO SERVICE THE SAW
Do not force a tool or an attachment when servicing or operating the Slab Saw. Use the correct tools
for service or adjustments.
DO NOT OVERREACH
Keep proper footing and balance at all times by not overreaching.
DO NOT OPERATE A TOOL WHEN TIRED
When tired, take a break and relax.

SLAB SAW SERIES SAFETY
DIRECTION OF FEED
Always feed work into a blade or cutter in the direction shown in this manual. All blades, grinding
wheels or polishing belts should always be installed such that rotation is in the direction of the arrow
imprinted on the blade, wheel or belt.
ONLY OPERATE AT THE PROPER SPEED
Severe personal injury and damage to the motor or equipment can result if operated at speeds above
maximum.
NEVER LEAVE A TOOL RUNNING UNATTENDED – TURN POWER OFF
Do not leave a tool until it comes to a complete stop. Always turn the tool off, and disconnect the
power cord to its source, when leaving the work area or when work is finished. Do not leave extension
cords attached to the power cord or power receptacle (wall outlet) when leaving the work area.
CHECK FOR DAMAGED OR WORN PARTS
Before using a power tool, check for damaged parts. A guard or any other part that is damaged
should be carefully checked to determine if it would operate properly and perform its intended
function. Always check moving parts for proper alignment or binding. Check for broken parts and
mountings and all other conditions that may affect the operation of the power tool. A guard, or any
damaged part, should be properly repaired or replaced.
USE RECOMMENDED ACCESSORIES AND PARTS
Consult the owner’s manual for recommended accessories and parts. Using improper parts and
accessories may increase the risk of personal and/or bystander injury.
USE THE PROPER EXTENSION CORD
If using an extension cord, make sure it is in good condition first. When using an extension cord, be
sure to use one heavy enough to carry the current your product will draw. An undersized cord will
cause a drop in line voltage that will result in a loss of power and overheating. The table on page 8
shows the correct AWG (American Wire Gauge) size to use depending on cord length and nameplate
ampere rating. If in doubt, use the next heavier gauge. The smaller the gauge number, the heavier the
cord.
USE THE PROPER POWER SOURCE
This tool is only to be used with a 120 volt 60 HZ power source. Ensure power source is at least 15
amps and 110 to 120 volts. Low voltage current can adversely effect electric motor performance and
overall life.
USE THE RECOMMENDED COOLING AND LUBRICATING FLUIDS
Never operate a tool dry that requires coolant or lubricant. This can lead to shortened tool life, tool
damage and personal injury.
MAINTAIN TOOLS WITH CARE
Keep the diamond blade sharp, the sawing lubricant clean and reservoir filled to the correct level
for the best and safest performance. Always follow the maintenance instructions for sharpening the
blade, lubricating and servicing the Slab Saw.

SLAB SAW SERIES SAFETY
SILICA DUST WARNING
Grinding/cutting/drilling of masonry, concrete, metal and other materials with silica in their composition
may give off dust or mists containing crystalline silica. Silica is a basic component of sand, quartz,
brick clay, granite and numerous other minerals and rocks. Repeated and/or substantial inhalation of
airborne crystalline silica can cause serious or fatal respiratory diseases, including silicosis. In addition, California and some other authorities have listed respirable crystalline silica as a substance
known to cause cancer. When cutting such materials, always follow respiratory precautions.
Use appropriate NIOSH-approved respiratory protection where dust hazard may occur. Paper masks
or surgical masks without a NIOSH approval number are not recommended because they do little to
protect the worker. For more information about respirator programs, including what respirators have
received NIOSH approval as safe and effective, please visit the NIOSH website at:
http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/topics/respirators
Observe OSHA regulations for respirator use (29 C.F.R.§1910.134 and §1503.1).
Visit http://www.osha.gov for more information.
CALIFORNIA PROPOSITION 65 MESSAGE
Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities contain chemicals known (to the State of California) to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive
harm. Some examples of these chemicals are:
• Lead, from lead-based paints
• Crystalline silica from bricks, cement and other masonry products
• Arsenic and chromium, from chemically treated lumber
For further information, consult the following sources:

http://www.dir.ca.gov/Title8/sub4.html
((
Your risk from these exposures varies depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce
your exposure to these chemicals, work in a well-ventilated area, and work with approved safety
equipment, such as dust masks that are specially designed to filter out microscopic particles. Where
ON
)) extraction device is possible, it should be used. To achieve a high level of dust collecuse of a dust
tion, use an industrial vacuum cleaner.
WARNING
Sawing and drilling generate dust. Excessive airborne particles may cause irritation to eyes, skin and
respiratory tract. To avoid breathing impairment, always employ dust controls and protection suitable
to the material being sawed or drilled; See OSHA (29 CFR Part 1910.1200).

ELECTRICAL
REQUIREMENTS AND GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
ON
))
In order to prevent electrical shock and injury, the following electrical safety precautions and symbols
should be followed at all times!
WARNING
In case of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electrical
current to reduce the risk of electric shock. This tool is equipped with an electric cord which has an
equipment-grounding 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 connections of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock. The equipment-grounding conductor is the insulated conductor that has an outer surface that is green, with or without yellow stripes. If repair or replacement of the electric cord or plug is necessary, do not connect the equipment-grounding conductor to a live terminal.
• 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.
• Use only 3-wire extension cords that have 3-prong grounding plugs and 3-pole receptacles that accept the tool’s plug.
• Repair or replace a damaged or worn cord immediately.
This tool is intended for use on a circuit that has an outlet that looks like the one shown in Sketch A.
The tool has a grounding plug that looks like the plug illustrated in Sketch A. A temporary adapter,
which looks like the adapter illustrated in sketches B and C, may be used to connect this plug to a
2-pole receptacle as shown in Sketch B, if a properly grounded outlet is not available. The temporary
adapter should be used only until a properly grounded outlet can be installed by a qualified electrician. The green-colored rigid ear, plug, and the like, extending from the adapter, must be connected
to a permanent ground, such as a properly grounded outlet box.

SLAB SAW SERIES SAFETY
ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS AND GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
To avoid the possibility of the appliance plug or receptacle getting wet, position the saw to one side
of a wallmounted receptacle. This will prevent water from dripping onto the receptacle or plug. A “drip
loop," shown in picture below, should be arranged by the user to properly position the power cord relative to the power source.
The “drip loop" is that part of the cord below the level of the receptacle,
or the connector, if an extension cord is used. This method of positioning
the cord prevents the travel of water along the power cord and coming in
contact with the receptacle. If the plug or receptacle gets wet, DO NOT
unplug the cord. Disconnect the fuse or circuit breaker that supplies
power to the tool. Then unplug and examine for presence of water in the
receptacle.
Use only extension cords that are intended for outdoor use. These
extension cords are identified by a marking “Acceptable for use with
outdoor appliances; store indoors while not in use." Use only extension
cords having an electrical rating not less than the rating of the product.
Do not use damaged extension cords. Examine extension cords before using and replace if damaged.
Do not abuse extension cords and do not yank on any cord to disconnect. Keep cords away from heat
and sharp edges. Always disconnect the extension cord from the receptacle before disconnecting the
product form the extension cord.
To reduce the risk of electrocution, keep all connections dry and off the ground. Do not touch the plug
with wet hands.
Use of undersized extension cords result in low voltage to the motor that can result in motor burnout
and premature failure. Barranca Diamond warns that equipment returned to us showing signs of being
run in a low voltage condition, through the use of undersized extension cords, will be repaired or
replaced totally at the customer's expense. There will be no warranty claim.
To choose the proper extension cord:
• Locate the length of extension cord needed in the table below.
• Once the proper length is found, move down the column to obtain the correct AWG size required for
that length of extension cord.

12
SLAB SAW SERIES OIL/COOLANT
RECOMMENDED CUTTING OILS
Never run a diamond blade dry as this can immediately damage your blade. Use one of the oils/coolants recommended
below. Coolant should be kept clean and below 100° F. Sludge should be removed periodically and replaced with fresh
coolant so that your cuts will be clean and your blades will not be damaged.
Shell Diala Ax
Non-hazmat replacement oil for electrical transformer cooling. Excellent lubricating properties for blades and saw parts.
Flushes sludge from rock easily, degreases easily, and sludge settles in saw tank well. In Southern California, Shell Diala
Ax can be purchased from Dion and Sons, Inc (www.dionandsons.com).
Chevron Texaco Bright-Cut
A chlorine-free cutting oil with reduced sulfur and fat content. Light in color and low in odor.
Hyvolt II
Electrical transformer cooling oil. A highly refined petroleum product, available from some non-Shell oil distributors, typically only in 55 gallon drums. Same properties and performance as Shell Amber Neutral 100.
Chevron Superla #5
Food grade mineral oil. Non-hazardous lubricating oil for bakeries, breweries and food processing machinery. Good lubricating properties, degreases and settles sludge well. Can go rancid over time (1 year or less).
AVATEC 80
Food grade mineral oil, excellent for slab sawing in all our slab saws.
Texaco ALMAG
Pure petroleum based machining cutting oil. Good for slab sawing but very strong odor. Often the cheapest priced oil
available but odor is tough to eliminate.
Roc Cut
Roc Cut from Diamond Pacific is a new synthetic water soluble cutting additive with rust inhibitors. Mix 30 to 1 (water to
Roc Cut).
Roc-Oil
Roc-Oil from Diamond Pacific is an oil coolant for heavy duty cutting. Provides excellent blade protection and will not
cause rust to your blade or saw.
Under NO circumstances should any of the following fluids be used in any of our lapidary saws:
Automotive Antifreeze Coolant
Ethylene glycol based automotive antifreeze and its vapors are considered hazardous and toxic. Propylene glycol based
antifreeze is nontoxic but has practically no lubricating properties; it functions as a coolant only and its use will lead to
rapid blade wear and dulling.
Automotive Transmission Fluid
Does not have adequate lubricating proprieties for our saws; vapors are considered hazardous and toxic.
Water
A good coolant but has no lubricating properties and causes rust and degradation of exposed iron and steel parts. Causes
rapid blade dulling and premature wear. Use of water voids the warranty on all Barranca Diamond saws.
CNC Machining Fluids
Water soluble synthetic coolants (i.e. Valenite or Cimtool) are often mixed in a 20:1 blend with water. Fluid vapors are
considered hazardous. These fluids do not have adequate lubricating or rust inhibiting properties for the cast iron and
steel parts in our slab and trim saws.
Diesel, Heating Oil and Kerosene
Very flammable with a low flash point. At least 3 of our commercial cutting customers in Arizona and Pacific Northwest
have burned down their shops using these fluids. Can be very tough to degrease the residue and aroma out of the cut
slabs. These fluids are cheap, but very hazardous to use. Diesel is a benzene compound which is carcinogenic. All these
fluids can cause severe skin rashes and other ailments.
13
SLAB SAW SERIES STARTUP & ADJUSTMENT
PRE-START INSPECTION
The pre-start inspection should be performed before beginning any job.
1. Check Oil Level
Oil should always cover at least 1/4" to 3/8" of the bottom of the blade (Kerf should be completely covered). Do not overfill the reservoir tank!
2. Check Blade
CAUTION
Check blade signs for core or segment cracks, uneven segment wear, pounding
out of round arbor hole, undercutting, segment loss, dishing or loss of tension.
If the diamond blade shows signs of any of these problems the blade must be
replaced before starting work. A damaged blade will not cut correctly and could
cause physical injury.
STARTUP
Saw Lubricant
The saw tank reservoir should be filled with oil to a point 1/4" to 3/8" of the bottom of the blade. This
ensures adequate lubrication for the blade’s diamond notched segments and allows for splashing of
the oil onto the rock carriage, vise, rails and screw thread
for lubrication and rock mud flushing into the tank. Never
place more than 3/4 inch of oil over the bottom of the
blade as this overfilling will result in more friction and
work for the blade and motor to overcome the excess oil
causing motor and belt overheating. Periodically check
the oil tank level after each day of use to ensure an adequate level of lubricating oil in the tank. Expect loss of
cutting oil over time due to misting, absorption into the
rock material and heat evaporation.
Power Switch (SLAB SAW SERIES)
The motor requires no special preparation or adjustment prior to use of the slab saw. The on/off power
control toggle switch is located on the front of the saw. Pull the toggle switch away from the saw to
start the electric motor. Push the toggle switch toward the saw to stop the electric motor.
14
SLAB SAW SERIES STARTUP & ADJUSTMENT
Automatic Shutoff (SLAB SAW SERIES)
Once a rock specimen has been securely vised inside of
the saw, the operator can adjust the automatic shut-off
control switch by moving the link chain to the desired
position where the rock and vise are anticipated to
complete the desired cut. By moving the vise forward
with the rock in place, the operator can see where the
chain slack needs to be adjusted to stop the unit
automatically. Movement of the vice will tension the chain
to a point where it will pull the ON/OFF switch to the OFF
position and shut-off the power feed and blade shaft motor
automatically.
Slab saw power switch
New Blade Break-In Procedure
Be sure to wipe off any and all carbide or abrasive grit particles
from the cross and main feed screw rod and rails. It is recommended, upon initial use of the slab saws, to cut material that is abrasive
yet soft such as carbide brick or cinder block to remove the factory
paint and open the blade’s diamond segment for optimal cutting
performance. Use of a sharpening stone such as aluminum oxide
or carborundum is acceptable only if the sharpening brick is placed
securely in the vise.
Slab saw automatic shut-off chain
& adjustment to carriage hook
15
SLAB SAW SERIES STARTUP & ADJUSTMENT
Never operate the saw with the hood up, or hold a sharpening stone to the blade by hand. Use of the
vise is mandatory under all operation conditions. Never over-sharpen the blade too much as it will cut
down the blade life. Periodically, the diamond blades should be "dressed open" or sharpened by making several passes through a green carbide brick, aluminum oxide (60-100 grit), or abrasive stone such
as cinder block or red brick.
Should the saw experience difficulty in cutting, inspect the diamond blade for loss of tension, temper,
wobble, pounding, dishing, or glazing of the diamond cutting edge (kerf). Resharpening of the blade
may be required periodically when cutting dense and hard material. Segmented rim and continuous
rim 303 Pro blades are NOT repairable. Be sure blade flanges are at least 1/6 the blade diameter (i.e.
a 24" blade requires a set of flanges at least 4" in diameter). Undersized flanges will result in blade tension loss.
ADJUSTMENT AND OPERATION
Cutting Setup:
CAUTION
DO NOT FORCE the blade to cut, it will do the job better and safer at a rate for
which it was designed.
Rock Vise/Carriage Operation
The carriage and rock vise work together to securely hold the rock specimens during movement of the
material in the carriage toward and into the notched rim diamond blade. The rock specimen should
not exceed the maximum material size for the saw you are using (as shown in the table on the saw
specifications page). It is very important that the rock specimen be tightened by use of the hand screw
threaded bolt at the back of the rear vise plate once the specimen has been pushed forward and in firm contact with the
front plate. Both front and rear vise plates are constructed of
1/2" plywood to give firm and tight grip to the rock specimen.
Should replacement be needed due to wear or breakage,
the parts can be ordered from Barranca Diamond Products.
Wedges of wood can be used in the voids between the rock
specimen and vise plates to enhance the surface contact and
pressure hold prior to tightening the vise screw bolt. Be sure
to recheck the tightening screw prior to operation.

Handle Crank Cross Feed Adjustable Rock Cut Index Control
To use the crank cross feed index wheel, simply clamp and
secure the cutting material into the vise by using the clamp
screw to tighten the vise and turn the wheel crank until the
desired slab thickness is achieved You can measure the
slab thickness with a ruler prior to cutting, but remember,
depending on blade thickness, the amount of waste material
from the rock specimen will vary. Always allow the rock cut to
go to completion before opening the hood of the saw. Do not
over crank the vise to the far left or right position on the
carriage.
Cross feed index, crank the handle
and clutch lever assembly
Automatic Feed Engagement/Disengagement System
Slab saws are designed for operation with an adjustable clamping vise and self-feeding carriage
mount. The clutch engagement/disengagement lever should be positioned in the straight upward
(12 o'clock) position to disengage the clutch and allow the carriage to move freely along the rails. To
engage the clutch, simply turn the lever in the downward (3 or 9 o'clock) position to securely engage
the bronze shoe and block with the stainless steel thread. Should the carriage not move freely on the
rails, clean the rails with a clean rag and place a liberal amount of wheel bearing grease on all surfaces of the steel rails to assist in the free movement of the carriage.
Clutch lever in engaged position

Clutch Adjustment
The clutch system is comprised of a lever to cam assembly that raises and lowers a bronze clutch
shoe. Should the clutch not fully engage and move the carriage, loosen the countersink screw below
the vise table inside of the carriage and tighten the two allen head screws to depress the bronze pressure block. Adjust set screws in one-half turn increments. Be sure to retighten countersink screw after
each adjustment. Re-engage the clutch and restart saw to check if feed is working properly. If not,
readjust set screws another 1/2 turn, retighten countersink screw and restart saw to check feed.

Blade-Shaft Bearings
Remove sheet metal cover over blade shaft
and grease zerk fittings on base mount bearings. Use premium wheel bearing grease to
lubricate all blade-shaft bearings.
Shaft bearings
Cross-Adjustment Rail System
No grease or applied lubrication is required for the
stainless steel screw feed and cross-adjustment
rail system. The slab saw cutting oil splash will
adequately lubricate the vice screw-feed, rails and
clutch parts. If the carriage becomes hard to slide
over the rails, clean the rails with a rag and apply
a liberal amount of wheel bearing grease to the
surface of the steel rails to facilitate travel of the
carriage over the rails.

SLAB SAW SERIES MAINTENANCE
GENERAL MAINTENANCE
Oil Sludge Removal from Reservoir
Use plumber's pipe wrench to remove drain cap. Allow free liquid to drain to a pan. Use a spatula to
remove sludge from tank bottom toward drain hole. Use of plumbers tape on the drain pipe threads will
adequately seal the cap to thread contact to prevent leaks.
MONTHLY MAINTENANCE
The following should be performed monthly. Items should be lubricated as directed.
Shaft Bearings
Grease zerk fittings on sealed ball bearing every 20 to 30 hours of use. Rotate shaft periodically while
greasing zerk fittings.
Drive Belts
The belt tension from the motor to blade shaft and worm drive gear are factory preset for immediate
operation. However, the belt tension can be adjusted by adjusting the motor mount plate under the oil
reservoir box with an open end wrench.
Periodically, the belt tension should be checked by removing the belt guard metal cover and ensure
at least 1/2 to 3/4 inch of belt defection is observable. Never over tighten the drive belt as premature
motor, bearing and pulley wear may occur. Even though the
idler pulley contains sealed ball bearings that do not require
lubricant, a small amount of spray oil lubricant or grease
can be used periodically to keep the idler shaft and pulley
in free spinning condition. Do not allow oil or lubricant to
come in contact with the v-belts. Always ensure the spring
on the idler pulley arm is attached and not damaged. Some
periodic lubrication at the idler shaft/pulley will be necessary. Use a light oil for this bearing to shaft contact surface.

SLAB SAW SERIES MAINTENANCE
Worm Shaft and Pinion Gear Lubrication
The worm drive shaft and pinion gear lubrication box on the rear of the saw should be checked for
adequate grease lubrication periodically. Remove cover to check lubricant, remove the box by removing the four mounting screws that attach the box to the rear of the saw reservoir. Check the level of the
grease lubricant in the box by ensuring that gear box is filled so that at least 1/3 of the volume of the
box (up to 1 to 1 1/2 inches from bottom of box) such that the bottom of the bronze gear teeth are immersed in the lubricating grease. A common automotive bearing lithium or moly type grease lubricant
should be used. The bronze pinion gear and worm shaft will need to break-in as the unit is first used
causing some heat to build up on the gear shaft and lubricant box during this initial break-in period.
The grease level in the box should be checked and refilled if necessary after approximately 2 to 3
hours of initial use, be sure the worm and bronze gear teeth mesh together. A premium grade wheel
bearing grease for high temperature use is recommended.

Diamond Blade Change-Out
Hold blade in one hand and use a wrench to turn shaft nut counterclockwise and remove nut and
flange from shaft. After reinstalling blade, replace flange and nut and retighten. Do not over tighten
shaft nut.
Lubrication Points
Use premium grade wheel bearing grease when lubricating the saw. Clean the zerk fitting when finished lubricating. Apply grease slowly; stop when grease is seen between joints. Rotate blade and
driveshaft slowly by hand to spread grease uniformly into ball bearings.
V-Belt Inspection, Adjustment and Replacement
Look for frayed or split belts. Tighten belts for 1/2" to 3/4" of deflection from center of belt. Do not over
tighten.

SLAB SAW SERIES TROUBLESHOOTING
TROUBLESHOOTING
Saw Will Not Start
Check power cord and receptacle.
Motor Overheating
If motor overheats allow to cool for 2 to 3 hours, push reset
button with power disconnected, hookup power cord and resume
cutting by pulling the power switch to the ON position. All motors
have automatic thermal protection and will shut off if overheated.
Do not use long (25"+) drop cords.
Motor reset button
Vise carriage can not be moved by hand when clutch is disengaged
Adjust clutch by loosening the slotted locking screw, turn 2 allen set screws 1/2 turn clockwise, retighten slotted locking screw. Check to see if carriage is disengaged from screw feed by placing clutch
lever in 12 o'clock
position and moving carriage by hand over rails.
Vise carriage does not move automatically when clutch is engaged
Clutch block thread may be stripped or worn. Remove and replace bronze clutch block.
Blade will not cut properly
Check for damage or glazed diamond cutting kerf (segments). Replace damaged blades or resharpen
dull segmented blades.

charge for such replacement part(s), but this Warranty will not apply to labor charges in connection therewith.

NOT EXPRESSLY ASSUMED AS SET FORTH HEREIN.
The foregoing constitutes an expressed warranty on the terms set forth above and is the only warranty or
