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 OWNERS 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.
Use the GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) Switch, included with the unit, attached to the main
motor power cord plug and keep plugged into the power receptacle outlet source.
DISCONNECT TOOLS
Power tools should always be disconnected before servicing or when changing accessories, such as
blades, bits, cutters and the like.
TS6
SAFETY
REDUCE THE RISK OF UNINTENTIONAL STARTS
Make sure the ON/OFF switch is in the OFF position before plugging in a power tool.
ROTATING OR MOVING PARTS
Keep hands, feet, hair, and clothing away from all moving parts to prevent injury. Never operate the
motor with covers, shrouds or guards removed.
MAINTAIN TOOLS WITH CARE
Keep tools clean for the best and safest performance. Always follow maintenance instructions for
lubricating and when changing accessories.
KEEP WORK AREA CLEAN
Cluttered work areas and benches invite accidents.
DO NOT USE IN DANGEROUS OR HAZARDOUS ENVIRONMENTS
Do not operate equipment in dangerous or hazardous environments. Do not use power tools in damp
or wet locations nor expose them to rain. Always keep the work area well lighted. Always work in a
well ventilated area.
KEEP CHILDREN AWAY
All visitors and children should be kept a safe distance from the work area. Keep power cords
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 this power tool. Use the correct tools
for service or adjustments.
DO NOT OVERREACH
Keep proper footing and balance at all times by not overreaching.
TS6
SAFETY
DO NOT OPERATE A TOOL WHEN TIRED
When tired, take a break and relax.
DIRECTION OF FEED
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. TABLE 1, 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 A GROUND FAULT CIRCUIT INTERRUPTER
Use of a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) between the end of power cord and wall outlet is
required at all times.
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.
TS6
SAFETY
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
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 saw.
CAUTION
Sawing, grinding and drilling generates 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, ground or drilled; (See OSHA 29 CFR Part 1910.1200).
Diamond Blades improperly used are dangerous. Comply with American National Standards Institute
Safety Code, B7.1 and Occupational Safety and Health Act covering Speed, Safety Guards, Flanges,
Mounting Procedures, General Operating Rules, Handling, Storage and General Machine Conditions.
WARNING
CALIFORNIA PROPOSITION 65 MESSAGE
Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling and other 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 and cement and other masonry products and natural stone
• Arsenic and chromium, from chemically treated lumber
• Asbestos forming minerals

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.
TS6
SAFETY
ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS AND GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
In order to prevent potential electrical shock and injury, the following electrical safety precautions and
symbols should be followed at all times!
In case 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
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 wire that has a green outer surface, 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 of
Figure 1. The tool has a grounding plug that looks
like the plug illustrated in Figure 1. 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,
lug, and the like, extending from the adapter, must
be connected to a permanent ground such as a
properly grounded outlet box.

To reduce the risk of electrocution, keep all connections dry and off the ground.
A Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) should be provided on the circuit(s) or outlet(s) to be used
for this machine. Receptacles are available, having built-in GFCI protection, and may be used for this
measure of safety.
When using an extension cord, the GFCI should be installed closest to the power source, followed by
the extension cord, and lastly, the saw.
TS6
SAFETY
ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS AND GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS (continued)
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 FIGURE 2, should be arranged by the user to properly position the power cord relative
to the power source.
Power
Cord
Power
Tool
Supporting
Surface
Drip Loop
Figure 2: Drip Loop
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 under-size 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 TABLE 1 below.
• Once the proper length is found, move down the column to obtain the correct AWG size required for
that length of extension cord.

MAINTENANCE
Maintenance
The 6-inch Trim Saw will continue to perform at optimum levels with proper care, daily cleaning, and
general maintenance.
CAUTION Place the ON / OFF switch in the OFF position and unplug cord before servicing
and when changing accessories, such as blades and belts.
Figure 13: Drain Pipe
1. Place a five-gallon bucket or collection container under the pipe outlet cap.
2. Remove the cap with an adjustable wrench to let the lubricant flow into the bucket for proper disposal.
• It may be necessary to hold the pipe with gripping pliers to prevent it from unthreading from the reservoir when removing the cap.
• The sludge residue will likely not flow through the drain pipe and will remain inside
the reservoir.
3. The sludge should be removed when the lubricant is drained by removing the belt guard, saw table and blade, and extracting the sludge with a spatula or spoon.
4. Once the sludge is removed, wipe clean the inside of the tank with a disposable towel and refill the lubricant to cover the bottom 1/4" (6.35 mm) of the blade. (see Figure 6)
5. Dispose of the used coolant and sludge properly.
6. Be sure to check the level of the lubricant inside of the reservoir after every 3 to 5 hours of use. The lubricant will be absorbed onto the rock material, combine with rock mud (sludge) and be lost due to heat and evaporation.
14
TS6
V-BELT
V-Belt
The 6-inch Trim Saw blade arbor is powered by an AX-24 rubber V-belt from the electric motor. The
V-belt is correctly tensioned at the factory. Periodically check the belt tension by removing the guard
and depressing the belt in the middle between the motor and blade pulleys. There should be 1/2" (12.7
mm) of deflection once the belt is pushed down (see Figure 14). If the belt tension should become too
loose, poor sawing performance or slipping will result. If the belt is too tight (i.e. no deflection) the
electric motor and blade arbor bearings may be overheated and wear out prematurely or the motor
may shut off due to overheating.
WARNING To service the V-belt, unplug the 6-inch Trim Saw from its power source and remove the fasteners which secure the belt guard housing to the saw table and motor.
Figure 14: V-Belt correctly tensioned
Figure 15: Motor Mount Nuts
Tools Needed:

TS6
BLADE ASSEMBLY
Rock Vise Accessory
The Rock Vise accessory has cross feed threads attached to an indexing or crank handle to laterally
adjust the vise so that chip thickness is accurately controlled before each chip cut.
These threads should be lubricated periodically with wheel bearing or lithium grease to allow for ease
of rotation of the cross feed crank.
Should the wooden jaws on the vise become worn or start delaminating, replacement jaws can be
made from 1/2" (12.7 mm) plywood.
Blade Arbor Assembly and Pulleys
The TS6 is equipped with a 5/8" - 18 left-hand fine threaded arbor shaft with sealed ball bearings
mounted in an aluminum bearing arbor housing.
A bore die cast zinc coated pulley is mounted on the shaft outside the reservoir. Unusual noises emanating from the saw tank or arbor area, slower then normal cutting speeds and overheating of the shaft
or belt are indications of arbor / bearing wear.
NOTICE
Using the saw with a worn arbor / bearing assembly can result in permanent damage to
other components of the saw.
Periodically check the tightness of the four blade arbor housing mounting bolts to ensure they are securely tightened to the oil reservoir (see Figure 16).
Figure 16: Arbor Housing Mounting Bolts
Figure 17: Pulley Setscrew
Should the die cast pulleys on either the motor or blade arbor shaft need to be removed or replaced,
loosen the set screw on the hub of each pulley with a US standard Allen / hex wrench to remove the
pulley from the shaft (see Figure 17).

MAIN MOTOR
Main Motor
The motor shaft has sealed ball bearings and requires no
lubrication. The motor is protected from thermal damage
(overheating) with an automatic shut-off switch.
If the motor overheats it will automatically shut off and restart
once its internal components cool down and the motor is
restarted manually (red button).
Shut off the main motor by placing the power switch lever to
the OFF position and disconnecting the power source.
Allow the motor to cool (2 to 3 hours) and then push the red
reset button on the front of the motor (see Figure 18). Restart
the unit by turning the switch to ON.
Figure 18: Motor Reset Button
WARNING If the saw motor should stop during operation, the power to the main motor must
be shut off by moving the power switch in the OFF position. The motor will restart
automatically once cooled down.
If the motor does not restart after a cool down period, contact Barranca Diamond
Service at 800.474.5594.
Diamond Blade
Periodically, the diamond blade on the TS6 Trim Saw will need to be resharpened should slow or
poor sawing performance occur. Dull or “glazed over” diamonds will either not cut thus stalling the
saw and shutting off the motor, or the rock vise and rock material will ride up the blade and possibly
damage the blade or “dish” the core. Once the saw begins to labor or struggle to cut gemstones, the
user is advised to use the provided sharpening stick and resharpen the blade. Resharpening can be
performed either with the automatic power feed (stick secured in vise) or manually with the power feed
disengaged and a few slabs cut from the sharpening stick. If no sharpening stick is available, the user
could use an abrasive material such as cinder block or brick to remove the glazing over the diamonds
on the rim of the blade.
17
TS6
DIAMOND BLADE
Eventually all blades wear out and must be replaced with a new blade. New blades should be mounted
on the blade arbor so that the arrow marked on the steel core is pointing in the direction of the blade
rotation while in use.
•
•
•
If the arrow can't be found, use a hand lens or magnifying glass to inspect the rim and see the head and tail of any individual diamond.
To correctly mount the blade, the head of the diamond must cut first into the rock with the tail trailing behind.
For notched rim diamond blades it does not matter which way the blade is orientated on the arbor shaft.
Diamond Blade Installation and Removal
It will be necessary to access the blade for inspection or replacement.
1. Loosen the four flat-head screws securing the saw table to the reservoir tank, and screw for the
belt guard.
2. Remove the saw table.
• The blade is mounted on the 5/8" (15.8 mm) blade arbor between two aluminum blade flanges.
• A 5/8" - 18 left-handed jam nut secures the flanges and blade to the arbor shaft (see Figure 20).
Figure 19: Blade Arbor and Inner Flange
Figure 20: Blade Arbor Blade,
Outer Flange, and Jam Nut
3. Hold the blade with one hand and use a 15/16" (23.8 mm) wrench to tighten or loosen the jam nut (see Figure 21).
• The jam nut has left handed threads and is turned counterclockwise to tighten and
clockwise to loosen.
