GENERAL POWER TOOL SAFETY WARNINGS
WARNING Read all safety warnings and
all instructions. Failure to follow the warnings
and instructions may result in electric shock, fire
and/or serious injury.
Save all warnings and instructions for
future reference. The term "power tool" in
the warnings refers to your electric (corded)
power tool or battery-operated (cordless) power
tool.
1. Work area safety
a) Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered
or dark areas invite accidents.
b) Do not operate power tools in explosive
atmospheres, such as in the presence of
flammable liquids, gases or dust. Power tools
create sparks which may ignite the dust or
fumes.
c) Keep children and bystanders away while
operating a power tool. Distractions can cause
you to lose control.
2. Electrical safety
a) Power tool plugs must match the outlet.
Never modify the plug in any way. Do not use
any adapter plugs with grounded power tools.
Unmodified plugs and matching outlets will
reduce risk of electric shock.
b) Avoid body contact with grounded surfaces,
such as pipes, radiators, ranges and
refrigerators. There is an increased risk of
electric shock if your body is grounded.
c) Do not expose power tools to rain or wet
conditions. Water entering a power tool will
increase the risk of electric shock.
d) Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for
carrying, pulling or unplugging the power tool.
Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or
moving parts. Damaged or entangled cords
increase the risk of electric shock.
e) When operating a power tool outdoors, use an
extension cord suitable for outdoor use. Use of a
cord suitable for outdoor use reduces the risk of
electric shock.
f) If operating a power tool in a damp location is
unavoidable, use a residual current device (RCD)
protected supply. Use of an RCD reduces the risk
of electric shock.
3. Personal safety
a) Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use
common sense when operating a power tool. Do
not use a power tool while you are tired or under
the influence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A
moment of inattention while operating power
tools may result in serious personal injury.
b) Use personal protective equipment. Always
wear eye protection. Protective equipment such
as dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or
hearing protection used for appropriate conditions
will reduce personal injuries.
c) Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the
switch is in the off position before connecting to
power source and/or battery pack, picking up or
carrying the tool. Carrying power tools with your
finger on the switch or energising power tools that
have the switch on invites accidents.
d) Remove any adjusting key or wrench before
turning the power tool on. A wrench or a key left
attached to a rotating part of the power tool may
result in personal injury.

01
GENERAL POWER TOOL SAFETY WARNINGS
e) Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and
balance at all times. This enables better control
of the power tool in unexpected situations.
f) Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or
jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves
away from moving parts. Loose clothes,
jewellery or long hair can be caught in moving
parts.
g) If devices are provided for the connection of
dust extraction and collection facilities, ensure
these are connected and properly used. Use of
dust collection can reduce dust-related hazards.
4. Power tool use and care
a) Do not force the power tool. Use the correct
power tool for your application. The correct
power tool will do the job better and safer at the
rate for which it was designed.
b) Do not use the power tool if the switch does
not turn it on and off. Any power tool that
cannot be controlled with the switch is
dangerous and must be repaired.
c) Disconnect the plug from the power source
and/or the battery pack from the power tool
before making any adjustments, changing
accessories, or storing power tools. Such
preventive safety measures reduce the risk of
starting the power tool accidentally.
d) Store idle power tools out of the reach of
children and do not allow persons unfamiliar
with the power tool or these instructions to
operate the power tool. Power tools are
dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
e) Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment
or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts and
any other condition that may affect the power
tool’s operation. If damaged, have the power tool
repaired before use. Many accidents are caused
by poorly maintained power tools.
f) Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly
maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges
are less likely to bind and are easier
g) Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits
etc. in accordance with these instructions, taking
into account the working conditions and the work
to be performed. Use of the power tool for
operations different from those intended could
result in a hazardous situation.
5. Service
a) Have your power tool serviced by a qualified
repair person using only identical replacement
parts. This will ensure that the safety of the power
tool is maintained.
b) If the replacement of the supply cord is
necessary, this has to be done by the
manufacturer or its agent in order to avoid a
safety hazard.
6. Battery Tool Use and Care
a) Recharge only with the charger specified by
the manufacturer. A charger that is suitable for
one type of battery pack may create a risk of fire
when used with another battery pack.
b) Use power tools only with specifically
designated battery packs. Use of any other
battery packs may create a risk of injury or fire.

GENERAL POWER TOOL SAFETY WARNINGS
c) When Battery pack is not in use, keep it away
from other metal objects, like paper clips, coins,
keys, nails, screws or other small metal object
that can make a connection from one terminal
to another. Shorting the battery terminals
together may cause burns or a fire.
D) User abusive conditions, liquid may be
ejected from the battery; Avoid contact. If
contact accidentally occurs, flush with copious
amounts of water. If liquid contacts eyes, seek
medical help immediately. Liquid ejected from
the batter may cause irritation or burns.
7. Additional Safety and working
Instructions
7.1. Dust from materials such as lead-containing
coatings, some wood types, minerals and
metals can be harmful to one’s health and
cause allergic reactions, leading to respiratory
infections and/or cancer. Materials containing
asbestos may only be worked by specialists.
Observe the relevant regulations in your country
for the materials to be worked.
7.2. Prevent dust accumulation at the
workplace. Dust can easily ignite.
8 Safety Warnings for Chop and Mitre
Saws
8.1 Never stand on the power tool. Serious
injuries can occur when the power tool tips over
or when inadvertently coming into contact with
the saw blade.
8.2 Make sure that the guard operates properly
and that it can move freely. Never lock the
guard in place when opened.
8.3 Never remove cutting remainders, wood
chips, etc. from the sawing area while the
machine is running. Always guide the tool arm
back to the neutral position first and then switch
the machine off.
8.4 Guide the saw blade against the work piece
only when the machine is switched on.
Otherwise there is damage of kickback, when the
saw blade becomes wedged in the work piece.
8.5 Keep handles dry, clean, and free from oil and
grease. Greasy, oily handles are slippery causing
loss of control.
8.6 Operate the power tool only when the work
area to the work piece is clear of any adjusting
tools, wood chips, etc. Small pieces of wood or
other objects that come in contact with the
rotating saw blade can strike the operator with
high speed.
8.7 Keep the floor free of wood chips and
material remainders. You could slip or trip.
8.8 Always firmly clamp the piece to be worked.
Do not saw work pieces that are too small to
clamp. Otherwise, the clearance of your hand to
the rotating saw blade is too small.
8.9 Use the machine only for cutting the
materials listed under Intended Use.
Otherwise, the machine can be subject to
overload.
8.10 If the saw blade should become jammed,
switch the machine off and hold the work piece
until the saw blade comes to a complete stop. To
prevent kickback, the work piece may not be
moved until after the machine has come to a
complete stop. Correct the cause for the jamming
of the saw blade before restarting the machine.
LJ305SCMS-DB

GENERAL POWER TOOL SAFETY WARNINGS
8.11 Do not use dull, cracked, bent or damaged
saw blades. Unsharpened or Improperly set saw
blades produce narrow kerf causing excessive
friction, blade binding and kickback.
8.12 Always use saw blades with correct size
and shape (diamond versus round) of bore.
Saw blades that do not match the mounting
hardware of the saw will run eccentrically,
causing loss of control.
8.13 Do not use high speed steel (HSS) saw
blades. Such saw blades can easily break.
8.14 Do not touch the saw blade after working
before it has cooled. The saw blade becomes
very hot while working.
8.15 Never operate the machine without the
insert plate. Replace a defective insert plate.
Without flawless insert plates, injuries are
possible from the saw blade.
8.16 Check the cable regularly and have a
damaged cable repaired only through an
authorised customer service agent. Replace
damaged extension cables. This will ensure that
the safety of the power tool is maintained.
8.20 Never use the machine with a damaged
cable. Do not touch the damaged cable and pull
the mains plug when the cable is damaged while
working. Damaged cables increase the risk of an
electric shock.
9. Safety Warnings for Lasers
The mitre saw has a built‐in laser light. The laser is
CLASS 2. These lasers do not normally present an
optical hazard. However, DO NOT stare at the
beam, as this can cause flash blindness.
9.1 Do not remove or deface any product labels.
Removing product labels increases the risk of
exposure to laser radiation.
9.2 The laser beam can be harmful to the eyes.
Always avoid direct expose to eyes. Do not project
the laser beam directly into the eyes or at any
object other than the work piece.
9.3 Do not look directly into the laser‐beam‐
output aperture during operation.
9.4 Turn the laser on only when making cuts.
The laser on the mitre saw is not a toy. Always
keep it out of the reach of children. The laser light
emitted from this device should never be directed
toward any person for any reason.
8.17 Store the machine in a safe manner when
not being used. The storage location must be
dry and lockable. This prevents the machine
from storage damage, and from being operated
by untrained persons.
9.5 Always turn the laser beam off when it is not
in use. Leaving the tool on increases the risk of
someone inadvertently staring into the laser’s
beam.
8.18 Secure the work piece. A work piece
clamped with clamping devices or in a vice is
held more secure than by hand.
9.6 Be sure that the laser beam is aimed at a
work piece (such as wood or a rough‐coated
surface) that does not have a reflective Surface
8.19 Never leave the machine before it has
come to a complete stop. Cutting tools that are
still running can cause injuries.
LJ305SCMS-DB

GENERAL POWER TOOL SAFETY WARNINGS
9.7 Do not use on materials that have shiny,
reflective surfaces, such as sheet metal.
The reflective surface could reflect the beam
back at the operator. Be aware that laser light
reflected off of a mirror or any other reflective
surfaces can also be dangerous.
9.8 Always wear laser‐protective eyewear
when working on or near reflective surfaces.
9.9 Do not attempt to activate the laser when
the tool housing is removed.
9.10 The laser is activated by means of a
button switch that is independent of the main
switch for the saw.
9.11 Do not replace the laser light assembly
with a different one. Any repairs must be
carried out by the laser manufacturer or an
authorized service agent.
10. Using an Extension Cable.
10.1. If an extension cable is required, use an
approved triple core extension cable suitable for
the power input of the tool.
10.2. Grounded tools always require a three wire
extension cable.
10.3. As the distance from the supply outlet
increases you must use a heavier gauge extension
cable. Using extension cables with inadequately
sized wire causes a serious drop in voltage,
resulting in loss of power and possible tool
damage.
10.4. The smaller the gauge number of the wire
the greater the capacity of the cord.
10.5. When using a cable reel, always unwind the
cable completely.
9.12 Do not attempt to repair the laser guide
by yourself.
9.13 Do not attempt to change any parts of
the laser guide.

delivery from their packaging.
Remove all packaging material from the
machine and the accessories provided.
Before starting the operation of the machine
for the first time, check if all parts listed in the
box content section have been supplied.
Note: Check the power tool for possible
damage. Before further use the machine,
check that all protective devices are fully
function. Any lightly damaged parts must be
carefully checked to ensure flawless operation
of the tool. All parts must be properly
mounted and all conditions fulfilled that
ensure faultless operation.
Damaged protective devices and parts must be
immediately replaced by an authorised service
centre.
Mitre Table Positive Stops
There are positive stops at 0°, 15°, 22.5°, 30°
and 45° to the left and right. While the table is
being rotated, the table will stop at the next
positive stop. Once the desired angle is
obtained, use the mitre lock handle to lock the
table.
Vice Assembles (Vertical and Horizontal)
The vertical vive can be installed in two positions
on either the left or the right side of the guide
fence. Insert the vice rod into the hole in the
guide fence and tighten the vice lock knob to
secure the vice rod. The horizontal quick adjust
vice can be installed in two positions on either
the left or right side of the table base. Insert the
vice pivot shaft into the hole in the base. To
adjust the position of the vice, simply turn the
handle or use the quick adjust feature by lifting
the half nut and pushing or pulling the handle to
position the vice. Reposition the half nut on the
threaded shaft to secure the vice in place.
Pulling out the rectangle extension wings

ASSEMBLY & ADJUSTMENTS
Bench Mounting
ADJUSTMENTS
The saw base has holes to facilitate bench
mounting. Fix the saw to the bench using 4 hex
bolts and hex nuts. If desired, you can mount
the saw to a piece of 13mm or thicker plywood
which can then be clamped to your work
support or moved to other job sites and reclamped.
Caution: Make sure that the mounting surface
is not warped as an uneven surface can cause
binding and inaccurate sawing.
Adjusting fence extensions
This mitre saw comes with a back fence with
fence extensions at both ends which slide
outwards for additional back support for those
long workpieces. To adjust the position of each
fence extensions:
- loosen the fence extension cap screw using
the supplied hex key.
- Loosen the fence extension rear lock knob.
- Slide the fence extension outwards to the
desired position and retighten the cap screw
and rear lock knob.
Depths of cut stop adjustment
In its normal position, the depth cut stop
permits the saw blade to cut right through a
workpiece. When the saw arm is lifted, the
depth of the cut stop can be pushed towards
the front of the saw so that the depth
adjustment screw contacts the stop as the saw
arm is lowered. This restricts the cut to an
“adjusted depth” in the workpiece. The depth
of cut can be adjusted with the adjustment
screw and locked in position with the lock nut.
Adjusting the bevel angle
This mire saw is capable of dual bevel angles which
means the saw head can be inclined towards the
right or the left. To adjust the saw head to any
bevel angle;
- Loosen the bevel lock knob and pull the positive
stop adjustment knob outwards as shown. At this
point, the saw head can be inclined to any angle
you desire. If you require a predetermined bevel
angle of 0°, Push the adjustment knob inwards
and pivot the saw head until it stops at 0°. Once
the desired bevel angle is obtained, it is very
important that you retighten the bevel lock knob.

from the main power supply.
- Push down on the saw arm and pull and turn
the saw head release knob to disengage the saw
head.
- Raise the saw head to its highest position.
- Lift the lower blade guard with one hand and
with the other hand, unscrew and remove both
pan head screws which fix the guard plate and
lower blade guard to the upper blade guard
using a Phillips screwdriver.
- Pull the guard plate and lower blade guard
downwards and set it all down on the table to
allow access to the blade bolt.
- Completely depress the spindle lock button
using one hand. Rotate the blade by hand until
the spindle locks.
- Use the blade wrench provided to remove the
blade bolt, loosen in a clockwise direction as the
blade bolt has a left hand thread.
- Remove the outer blade flange and the blade.
- Wipe a drop of oil onto the inner and outer
blade flanges.
- Fit the new blade onto the spindle making sure
that the inner blade flange sits properly behind
the blade.
-Never attempt to use a blade larger
than the stated capacity of the saw
(12"). It will come into contact with the
blade guards.
CAUTION: Always install the blade with the
blade teeth pointing downwards. The direction
of the blade rotation is also stamped with an
arrow on the upper blade guard.
-Never use a blade that is too thick to
allow the outer blade flange to engage
with the flats on the spindle. It will
prevent the blade screw from properly
securing the blade on the spindle.
-Reposition the outer blade flange.
-Depress the spindle lock and reposition and
secure the blade bolt using the blade wrench.
Tighten the blade bolt in a counterclockwise
direction as the blade bolt has a left hand

MAINTENANCE & SERVICE
REPLACING BELT & ADJUSTING BELT
TENSION
If the drive belt needs to be replaced or
properly tensioned, follow these instructions;
- Make sure that the power cord is removed
from the main power supply.
- Push down on the saw arm and pull and turn
the saw head release knob to lock the saw arm
in the down position.
- Remove the drive belt cover by removing the
3 pan head screws.
- To release the belt tension, first loosen the 6
pan head screws inside the belt housing to
allow the motor to move position. Then
unscrew the belt tension set screw to release
the belt tension.
- Remove the used drive belt by hand.
- Reposition new drive belt making sure the
belt is properly centered on both pulleys.
- Tighten the belt tension set screw until you
obtain a 1/2" center deflection of the belt by
applying pressure with your fingers.
- Once the belt is properly tensioned, retighten
the 6 pan head screws.
- Reposition the belt cover and secure it into
place using the same 3 pan head screws
removed previously.
REPLACING CARBON BRUSHES
Remove and check the carbon brushes regularly
(normally after 50 hours of use). The carbon
brushes are installed inside the motor housing.
Using a screwdriver, remove the 2 pan head
screws that hold the motor housing cap in place.
Once the motor housing cap is removed, to
release the carbon brush from the holder, lower
the retaining spring. Disconnect the carbon
brush wire from the terminal, remove the
carbon brush from the motor housing and
inspect it. Repeat this step for the second
carbon brush. Carbon brushes need to be
replaced once they wear down to the limit mark.
Keep the carbon brushes clean and free to slip in
the holders.
If they have worn down to the limit mark,
purchase a set of identical replacement carbon
brushes (both carbon brushes should be
replaced at the same time). Insert new carbon
brushes into the holders, connect them to the
terminals, reposition the retaining spring and
reinstall the motor housing cap using the 2 pan
head screws
Cleaning
After use, wipe off chips and dust adhering to
the tool with cloth or the like. Keep the blade
guards and covers clean. Lubricate the sliding
portions with machine oil to prevent rust.
To maintain product SAFETY and RELIABILITY,
repairs, any other maintenance or adjustment
should be performed by your nearest
authorized service center.
NOTE: All the ball bearings are sealed and
lubricated for life and will require no
maintenance.

WORKING ADVICE
Working Advice
VOLTAGE WARNING: Before
connecting the tool to a power source
(receptacle, outlet, etc.) make sure the
voltage supplied is the same as that
specified on the nameplate of the tool.
A power source with voltage greater
than that for the specified tool can
result in SERIOUS INJURY to the user as well as damage to the tool. If in
doubt DO NOT PLUG IN THE TOOL.
Using a power source with less voltage
is harmful to the motor.
KNOW YOUR TOOL
Read and understand the owner manual
and labels affixed to the tool. Learn its
application and limitation.
GROUND THE TOOL.
This tool is equipped with an approved 3conductor cord and a 3-prong grounding
type plug to fit the proper grounding type
receptacle. The green conductor in the
cord is the grounding wire. NEVER
connect the green wire to a live terminal.
KEEP GUARDS IN PLACE.
Keep in good working order, properly
adjusted and aligned.
REMOVE ADJUSTING KEYS AND
WRENCHES.
Form habit of checking to see that keys
and adjusting wrenches are removed from
tool before turning it on.
KEEP WORK AREA CLEAN.
Cluttered areas and benches invite accidents.
Make sure the floor is clean and not slippery
due to wax and sawdust build-up.
AVOID DANGEROUS ENVIRONMENT.
Don't use power tools in damp or wet locations
or expose them to rain. Keep work area well-lit
and provide adequate surrounding work space.
KEEP CHILDREN AWAY. All visitors should be
kept a safe distance from work area.
MAKE WORKSHOP CHILD-PROOF. Use padlocks,
master switches or remove starter keys.
USE PROPER SPEED. A tool will do a better and
safer job when operated at the proper speed.
USE RIGHT TOOL. Don't force the tool or the
attachment to do a job for which it was not
designed.
WEAR PROPER APPAREL.
Do not wear loose clothing, gloves, neckties or
jewelry (rings, watch) because they could get
caught in moving parts. Non-slip footwear is
recommended. Wear protective hair covering to
contain long hair. Roll up long sleeves above the
elbows.
ALWAYS WEAR SAFETY GLASSES.
Always wear safety glasses. Everyday eyeglasses
only have impact resistant lenses, they are NOT
safety glasses. Also use a face or dust mask if
cutting operation is dusty.
DO NOT OVERREACH
Keep proper footing and balance at all times.
MAINTAIN TOOL WITH CARE.
Keep tools sharp and clean for best and safest
performance. Follow instructions for lubricating
and changing accessories.

operation of compound mitre saws, obtain
advice from your supervisor, instructor or other
qualified person.
CHECK DAMAGED PARTS.
Before further use of the tool, a guard or other
parts that are damaged should be carefully
checked to ensure that they will operate
properly and perform their intended function.
Check for alignment of moving parts, breakage
of parts, mounting, and any other conditions
that may affect its operation. A guard or other
parts that are damaged should be properly
repaired or replaced.
DO NOT perform any operation freehand.
Secure or clamp workpiece firmly against fence.
NEVER LEAVE MACHINE RUNNING
UNATTENDED. Turn power "OFF". Don't leave
any tool running until it comes to a complete
stop.
