n MAINTAIN TOOLS WITH CARE. Keep tools sharp
and clean for better and safer performance. Follow
instructions for lubricating and changing accessories.
n DISCONNECT TOOLS. When not in use, before
servicing, or when changing attachments, blades, bits,
cutters, etc., all tools should be disconnected.
n AVOID ACCIDENTAL STARTING. Be sure switch is off
when plugging in any tool.
n USE RECOMMENDED ACCESSORIES. Consult the
operator’s manual for recommended accessories. The
use of improper accessories may risk injury.
n NEVER STAND ON TOOL. Serious injury could occur
if the tool is tipped or if the cutting tool is unintentionally contacted.
n CHECK DAMAGED PARTS. Before further use of
the tool, a guard or other part that is damaged should
be carefully checked to determine that it will operate
properly and perform its intended function. Check for
alignment of moving parts, binding of moving parts,
breakage of parts, mounting and any other conditions
that may affect its operation. A guard or other part that
is damaged must be properly repaired or replaced by
an authorized service center to avoid risk of personal
injury.
n USE THE RIGHT DIRECTION OF FEED. Feed work
into a blade or cutter against the direction of rotation of
blade or cutter only.
n NEVER LEAVE TOOL RUNNING UNATTENDED.
TURN THE POWER OFF. Don’t leave tool until it
comes to a complete stop.
n PROTECT YOUR LUNGS. Wear a face or dust mask if
the cutting operation is dusty.
n PROTECT YOUR HEARING. Wear hearing protection
during extended periods of operation.
n DO NOT ABUSE CORD. Never yank cord to disconnect from receptacle. Keep cord from heat, oil, and
sharp edges.
n USE OUTDOOR EXTENSION CORDS. When tool

WARNING: Read and understand all instruc-
tions. Failure to follow all instructions listed below,
may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious
personal injury.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS
n KNOW YOUR POWER TOOL. Read the operator’s
manual carefully. Learn the saw’s applications and
limitations as well as the specific potential hazards
related to this tool.
n GUARD AGAINST ELECTRICAL SHOCK BY PREVENTING BODY CONTACT WITH GROUNDED
SURFACES. For example, pipes, radiators, ranges,
refrigerator enclosures.
n KEEP GUARDS IN PLACE and in good working order.
n REMOVE ADJUSTING KEYS AND WRENCHES.
Form habit of checking to see that keys and adjusting
wrenches are removed from tool before turning it on.
n KEEP WORK AREA CLEAN. Cluttered areas and
benches invite accidents. DO NOT leave tools or
pieces of wood on the saw while it is in operation.
n DO NOT USE IN DANGEROUS ENVIRONMENTS.
Do not use power tools in damp or wet locations or
expose to rain. Keep the work area well lit.
n KEEP CHILDREN AND VISITORS AWAY. All visitors
should wear safety glasses and be kept a safe
distance from work area. Do not let visitors contact
tool or extension cord while operating.
n MAKE WORKSHOP CHILDPROOF with padlocks and

safer at the feed rate for which it was designed.
n USE RIGHT TOOL. Don’t force the tool or attachment
to do a job it was not designed for. Don’t use it for a
purpose not intended.
n USE THE PROPER EXTENSION CORD. Make sure
your extension cord is in good condition. Use only a
cord heavy enough to carry the current your product
will draw. An undersized cord will cause a drop in line
voltage resulting in loss of power and overheating. A
wire gauge size (A.W.G.) of at least 14 is recommended
for an extension cord 25 feet or less in length. If in
doubt, use the next heavier gauge. The smaller the
gauge number, the heavier the cord.
n DRESS PROPERLY. Do not wear loose clothing,
gloves, neckties, or jewelry. They can get caught
and draw you into moving parts. Rubber gloves and
nonskid footwear are recommended when working
outdoors. Also wear protective hair covering to contain
long hair.

work or around or over the blade while blade is
rotating. Do not attempt to remove cut material when
blade is moving.
BLADE COASTS AFTER BEING TURNED OFF.
NEVER USE IN AN EXPLOSIVE ATMOSPHERE.
Normal sparking of the motor could ignite fumes.
INSPECT TOOL CORDS PERIODICALLY. If damaged,
have repaired by a qualified service technician at
an authorized service facility. The conductor with
insulation having an outer surface that is green with
or without yellow stripes is the equipment-grounding conductor. If repair or replacement of the electric
cord or plug is necessary, do not connect the equipment-grounding conductor to a live terminal. Repair
or replace a damaged or worn cord immediately. Stay
constantly aware of cord location and keep it well away
from the rotating blade.
INSPECT EXTENSION CORDS PERIODICALLY and
replace if damaged.
GROUND ALL TOOLS. If tool is equipped with threeprong plug, it should be plugged into a three-hole
electrical receptacle.
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 CORRECT ELECTRICAL DEVICES: 3-wire
extension cords that have 3-prong grounding plugs and
3-pole receptacles that accept the tool’s plug.
DO NOT MODIFY the plug provided. If it will not fit the
outlet, have the proper outlet installed by a qualified
electrician.
KEEP TOOL DRY, CLEAN, AND FREE FROM OIL
AND GREASE. Always use a clean cloth when clean-
ing. Never use brake fluids, gasoline, petroleum-based
products, or any solvents to clean tool.
n STAY ALERT AND EXERCISE CONTROL. Watch
what you are doing and use common sense. Do not
operate tool when you are tired. Do not rush.
n DO NOT USE TOOL IF SWITCH DOES NOT TURN IT
ON AND OFF. Have defective switches replaced by an
authorized service center.
n USE ONLY CORRECT BLADES. Do not use blades
with incorrect size holes. Never use blade washers or
blade bolts that are defective or incorrect. The maximum blade capacity of your saw is 10 in. (254 mm).
n BEFORE MAKING A CUT, BE SURE ALL ADJUSTMENTS ARE SECURE.
n BE SURE BLADE PATH IS FREE OF NAILS. Inspect
for and remove all nails from lumber before cutting.
n NEVER TOUCH BLADE or other moving parts during
use.
n NEVER START A TOOL WHEN ANY ROTATING COMPONENT IS IN CONTACT WITH THE WORKPIECE.
n DO NOT OPERATE A TOOL WHILE UNDER THE
INFLUENCE OF DRUGS, ALCOHOL, OR ANY
MEDICATION.
n WHEN SERVICING use only identical replacement
parts. Use of any other parts may create a hazard or
cause product damage.
n USE ONLY RECOMMENDED ACCESSORIES listed
in this manual or addendums. Use of accessories
that are not listed may cause the risk of personal
injury. Instructions for safe use of accessories are
included with the accessory.
n DOUBLE CHECK ALL SETUPS. Make sure blade is
tight and not making contact with saw or workpiece
before connecting to power supply.
SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
n GUARD AGAINST KICKBACK. Kickback occurs
when the blade stalls rapidly and workpiece is driven
back towards the operator. It can pull your hand into
the blade resulting in serious personal injury. Stay out
of blade path and turn switch off immediately if blade
binds or stalls.
�n USE RIP FENCE. Always use a fence or straight edge
guide when ripping.
n SUPPORT LARGE PANELS. To minimize risk of blade
pinching and kickback, always support large panels.
n REMOVE ALL FENCES AND AUXILIARY TABLES
before transporting saw. Failure to do so can result in
an accident causing possible serious personal injury.
n ALWAYS USE BLADE GUARD, RIVING KNIFE/
SPREADER/SPLITTER, AND ANTI-KICKBACK
PAWLS on all “through-sawing” operations. Through-
sawing operations are those in which the blade cuts
completely through the workpiece as in ripping or
cross cutting. Keep the blade guard down, the antikickback pawls down, and the riving knife/spreader/
splitter properly aligned to the saw blade.
n ALWAYS SECURE WORK firmly against rip fence,
miter fence, or miter gauge.
n ALWAYS USE A PUSH STICK FOR RIPPING NARROW STOCK. A push stick is a device used to push
a workpiece through the blade instead of using your
hands. Size and shape can vary but the push stick must
always be narrower than the workpiece to prevent the
push stick from contacting the saw blade. When ripping
narrow stock, always use a push stick, so your hand does
not come close to the saw blade. Use a featherboard and
push blocks for non-through cuts.
4
SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
n NEVER perform any operation “freehand” which
means using only your hands to support or guide the
workpiece. Always use either the rip fence or miter
gauge to position and guide the work.
n NEVER stand or have any part of your body in line
with the path of the saw blade.
n NEVER reach behind, over, or within three inches of
the blade or cutter with either hand for any reason.
n MOVE THE RIP FENCE out of the way when cross
cutting.
n NEVER use rip fence as cutoff gauge when cross
cutting.
n NEVER attempt to free a stalled saw blade without
first turning the saw OFF and disconnecting the saw
from the power source.
n PROVIDE ADEQUATE SUPPORT to the rear and
sides of the saw table for wide or long work pieces.
Use a sturdy “outrigger” support if a table extension
more than 24 inches long is attached to the saw.
n AVOID KICKBACKS (work thrown back toward you)
by:
a) Keeping blade sharp.
b) Keeping rip fence parallel to the saw blade.
c) Keeping riving knife/spreader/splitter, anti-kickback
pawls, and blade guard in place and operating.
d) Not releasing the work before it is pushed all the
way past the saw blade using a push stick.
e) Not ripping work that is twisted or warped or does
not have a straight edge to guide along the fence.
n AVOID AWKWARD OPERATIONS AND HAND
POSITIONS where a sudden slip could cause your
hand to move into the cutting tool.
n USE ONLY RECOMMENDED ACCESSORIES listed
in this manual or addendums. Use of accessories that
are not listed may cause the risk of personal injury.
Instructions for safe use of accessories are included
with the accessory.
n MAKE SURE THE WORK AREA HAS AMPLE LIGHTING to see the work and that no obstructions will
interfere with safe operation BEFORE performing any
work using the table saw.
n ALWAYS TURN OFF SAW before disconnecting it, to
avoid accidental starting when reconnecting to power
supply.
n ALWAYS DISCONNECT SAW FROM POWER SUP-
PLY BEFORE MAKING ADJUSTMENTS OR ADDING
ACCESSORIES. Make sure the switch is off when
reconnecting to power supply.
n ALWAYS FEED WORKPIECE AGAINST THE ROTATION OF THE CUTTER.
�n DO NOT USE AWKWARD HAND POSITIONS.
n KEEP FINGERS AWAY from the revolving cutter, and
use fixtures when necessary.
n ALWAYS USE THE DUST COVER for overhead
guarding.
n DO NOT REMOVE JAMMED CUTOFF PIECES until
cutter or blade has stopped and tool has been
disconnected from power source.
n HOLD THE WORKPIECE FIRMLY AGAINST THE
TABLE.
n THIS TOOL should have the following markings:
a) Wear eye protection.
b) Use saw blade guard and riving knife/spreader/
splitter for every operation for which it can be
used, including all through sawing.
c) Keep hands out of the line of saw blade.
d) Use a push stick when required.
e) Pay particular attention to instructions on reducing
risk of kickback.
f) Do not perform any operation freehand.
g) Never reach around or over the saw blade.
n SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS. Refer to them
frequently and use to instruct other users. If you loan
someone this tool, loan them these instructions also.

ELECTRICAL
EXTENSION CORDS
ELECTRICAL CONNECTION
Use only 3-wire extension cords that have 3-prong
grounding plugs and 3-pole receptacles that accept the
tool’s plug. When using a power tool at a considerable
distance from the power source, use an extension cord
heavy enough to carry the current that the tool will draw.
An undersized extension cord will cause a drop in line
voltage, resulting in a loss of power and causing the
motor to overheat. Use the chart provided below to
determine the minimum wire size required in an extension
cord. Only round jacketed cords listed by Underwriter’s
Laboratories (UL) should be used.
This tool is powered by a precision built electric motor.
It should be connected to a power supply that is 120
volts, 60 Hz, AC only (normal household current). Do
not operate this tool on direct current (DC). A substantial
voltage drop will cause a loss of power and the motor will
overheat. If the saw does not operate when plugged into
an outlet, double check the power supply.

The no-load speed of this tool is approximately 5,000 rpm.
This speed is not constant and decreases under a load or
with lower voltage. For voltage, the wiring in a shop is as
important as the motor’s horsepower rating. A line intended only for lights cannot properly carry a power tool motor.
Wire that is heavy enough for a short distance will be too
light for a greater distance. A line that can support one
power tool may not be able to support two or three tools.

BASIC OPERATION OF THE TABLE SAW
The 3-prong plug must be plugged into a matching outlet
that is properly installed and grounded according to all
local codes and ordinances. Improper connection of the
equipment can result in electric shock. Do not modify
the plug if it will not fit the outlet. Have the correct outlet
installed by a qualified electrician. Refer to the Electrical
section in this manual.
PUSH BLOCKS
CAUSES OF KICKBACK
Fig. 18
n Always use clean, sharp, and properly-set blades.
Never make cuts with dull blades.
n To avoid pinching the blade, support the work properly
before beginning a cut.
n When making a cut, use steady, even pressure. Never
force cuts.
n Do not cut wet or warped lumber.
n Always hold your workpiece firmly with both hands or
with push sticks. Keep your body in a balanced position to be ready to resist kickback should it occur.
Never stand directly in line with the blade.
n Use the right type of blade for the cut being made.
Kickback can occur when the blade stalls or binds, kicking the workpiece back toward you with great force and
speed. If your hands are near the saw blade, they may
be jerked loose from the workpiece and may contact the
blade. Kickback can cause serious injury. Use precautions
to avoid the risks.
Kickback can be caused by any action that pinches the
blade in the wood such as:
n Making a cut with incorrect blade depth
n Sawing into knots or nails in the workpiece
n Twisting the wood while making a cut
n Failing to support work
n Forcing a cut
n Cutting warped or wet lumber
n Using the wrong blade for the type of cut
n Not following correct operating procedures
n Misusing the saw
n Failing to use the anti-kickback pawls
n Cutting with a dull, gummed-up, or improperly set
blade
CUTTING AIDS
See Figure 18.
Push sticks are devices used for safely pushing a
workpiece through the blade. They can be made in various sizes and shapes from scrap wood to use in a specific
project. The stick must be narrower than the workpiece,
with a 90˚ notch in one end and shaping for a grip on the
other end.
A push block has a handle fastened by recessed screws
from the underside. Use it on non-through cuts.
AVOIDING KICKBACK
CAUTION: Be sure the screws in a push block are
n Always use the correct blade depth setting. The top of
the blade teeth should clear the workpiece by 1/8 in. to
1/4 in.
n Inspect the work for knots or nails before beginning a
cut. Knock out any loose knots with a hammer. Never
saw into a loose knot or nail.
�n Always use the rip fence when rip cutting and the miter
gauge when cross cutting. This helps prevent twisting
the wood in the cut.
recessed to avoid damaging the saw or workpiece.

OPERATION
TYPES OF CUTS
See Figure 19.
There are six basic cuts: 1) the cross cut, 2) the rip cut, 3)
the miter cut, 4) the bevel cross cut, 5) the bevel rip cut,
and 6) the compound (bevel) miter cut. All other cuts are
combinations of these basic six. Operating procedures for
making each kind of cut are given later in this section.
1
CROSS CUT
WARNING: Always make sure the blade guard
and anti-kickback pawls are in place and working
properly when making these cuts to avoid possible
injury.
2
Cross cuts are straight 90° cuts made across the grain of
the workpiece. The wood is fed into the cut at a 90° angle
to the blade, and the blade is vertical.
RIP CUT
Rip cuts are made with the grain of the wood. To avoid
kickback while making a rip cut, make sure one side of
the wood rides firmly against the rip fence.
3
Miter cuts are made with the wood at any angle to the
blade other than 90°. The blade is vertical. Miter cuts
tend to “creep” away from the miter fence during cutting.
This can be controlled by holding the workpiece securely
against the miter fence.
MITER CUT
4
WARNING: Always use a push stick with small
pieces of wood, and also to finish the cut when
ripping a long narrow piece of wood, to prevent your
hands from getting close to the blade.
BEVEL CROSS CUT
Bevel cuts are made with an angled blade. Bevel cross
cuts are across the wood grain, and bevel rip cuts are with
the grain. The rip fence must always be on the right side
of the blade for bevel rip cuts.
5
Compound (or bevel) miter cuts are made with an angled
blade on wood that is angled to the blade. Be thoroughly
familiar with making cross cuts, rip cuts, bevel cuts, and
miter cuts before trying a compound miter cut.
BEVEL RIP CUT
CUTTING TIPS
Dado and rabbet cuts are non-through cuts which can
be either rip cuts or cross cuts. Carefully read and understand all sections of this operator’s manual before attempting any operation.
6
COMPOUND (BEVEL) MITER CUT
Fig. 19
WARNING: Do not use blades rated less than the
speed of this tool. Failure to heed this warning could
result in personal injury.
n Cut the wood with the finish side up.
n Knock out any loose knots with a hammer before
making the cut.
n Always provide proper support for the wood as it
comes out of the saw.
n The kerf (the cut made by the blade in the wood) will be
wider than the blade to avoid overheating or binding.
Make allowance for the kerf when measuring wood.
n Make sure the kerf is made on the waste side of the
measuring line.

OPERATION
FEATHERBOARD
HOW TO MOUNT A FEATHERBOARD
A featherboard is a device used to help control the
workpiece by guiding it securely against the table or
fence. Featherboards are especially useful when ripping
small workpieces and for completing non-through cuts.
The end is angled with a number of short kerfs to give a
friction hold on the workpiece and locked in place on the
table with a C-clamp. Test that it can resist kickback.
See Figure 21.
Completely lower the saw blade. Position the rip fence to
the desired adjustment for the cut to be performed and
lock the rip fence. Place the workpiece against the fence
and over the saw blade area. Adjust the featherboard
to apply resistance to the workpiece just forward of the
blade. Attach a C-clamp to secure the featherboard to the
edge of the saw table.
WARNING: Place the featherboard against the
WARNING: Do not locate the featherboard to

kickback can result from the featherboard pinching
the workpiece and binding the blade in the saw kerf.
Failure to heed this warning can result in serious
personal injury.

The table saw has been adjusted at the factory for making very accurate cuts. However, some of the components
might have been jarred out of alignment during shipping.
Also, over a period of time, readjustment will probably
become necessary due to wear.
To avoid unnecessary set-ups and adjustments, a good
practice is to check your setups carefully with a framing square and make practice cuts in scrap wood before
making finish cuts in good workpieces. Do not start any
adjustments until you have checked with a square and
made test cuts to be sure adjustments are needed.

TO REPLACE THE BLADE
See Figures 44 - 46.
To replace the blade with an accessory blade, follow the
instructions provided with the accessory.
n Unplug the saw.
n Lower the saw blade, raise the blade guard, and
remove the throat plate.
n Make sure the bevel locking lever is securely pushed to
the left. Raise the saw blade to its full height by turning
the height/bevel adjusting handwheel clockwise.
n Using the smaller hex wrench, insert the flat open end
into the flats on the arbor shaft.
n Insert the closed end of the larger hex wrench over the
hex nut. Holding both wrenches firmly, pull the larger
wrench forward to the front of the machine. Make sure
the blade nut is securely tightened. Do not overtighten.
NOTE: Arbor shaft has left hand threads.
Check all clearances for free blade rotation. See To Set
the Scale to the Blade. In cutting operations, the scale
will be set to the side of the blade where the cut will be
measured and made.
To install a standard blade:
n Place the new blade on the arbor shaft (the teeth
must point down toward the front of the saw to work
properly).
n Place the blade washer and the blade nut over the
blade arbor. Be sure the dome side of the blade
washer faces out from the blade and that all items are
snug against the arbor housing. Tighten securely.
n Rotate the blade by hand to make sure it turns freely.
n Lower the saw blade and reinstall the throat plate.
NOTE: Securely tighten throat plate screws. Do not allow the throat plate to bow up above the table surface.
