General Power Tool Safety
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 (corded) power tool.
Work area safety
1. Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents.
2. 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.
3. Keep children and bystanders away while operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control.
Electrical Safety
4. Power tool (GFCI) protected plug must match the outlet. Never modify the plug in any way. Do not use any adapter plugs with earthed (grounded) power tools.
Unmodified plug and matching outlets will reduce risk of electric shock.
5. Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces. There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is earthed or grounded.
6. Always wear rubber gloves when handling the power tool. Failure to wear protective gloves when the power tool is connected to the power source will increase
the risk of electric shock.
7. Do not expose power tool to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a power tool will increase the risk of electric shock. Direct the water to the blade only. The
motor must remain dry at all times.
8. 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.
9. 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.
10. Always use a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) protected supply. Use of an GFCI reduces the risk of electric shock.
Personal Safety
11. 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.
12. 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.
13. Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch is in the off-position before connecting to power source, picking up or carrying the tool. . Carrying power tools
with your finger on the switch or energizing power tool that have the switch on invites accidents.
14. 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 mayresult in personal
15. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. This enables better control of the power tool in unexpected situations.
16. Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Keep your hair, clothing, and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewelry or long hair can be
caught in moving parts.
17. 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.
Power tool use and care
18. Do not force the power tool.
19. 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.
20. Disconnect the plug from the power source 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.
21. 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.
22. Maintain power tool. 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.
23. Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are less likely to bind and are easier to control.
24. Use the power tool, accessories, 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.
24. 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.
25. Follow instruction for lubricating and changing accessories.
26. Keep handles dry, clean and free from oil and grease.
USE PROPER EXTENSION CORD. Make sure your extension cord is in good condition. When using an extension cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to carry the
current the power tool will draw. An undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage resulting in loss of power and overheating. Use 14 AWG extension cord for up to
25ft and 12 AWG cord for up to 50ft. Using extension cord longer than 50ft is not recommended. The smaller the gage number, the heavier the cord.
DO NOT let comfort or familiarity with product (gained from repeated use) replace strict adherence to power saw safety rules. If you use this tool unsafely or
incorrectly, you can suffer serious personal injury.
1. Keep hands away from cutting area and the blade. Keep your second hand on grip handle at all times. If both hands are holding the saw, they cannot be cut by the
2. Do not reach underneath the material. There is no guard to protect you from the blade below the material.
3. Adjust the cutting depth to the full thickness of the material to be cut. Lower the blade to the maximum.
4. Secure the material to be cut to stable platform. It is important to support the work properly to minimize body exposure, blade binding, or loss of control.
5. Wear rubber gloves at all times when operating this power tool. When in operation the cutting tool may contact hidden wiring or its own cord. Contact with a
"live" wire will also make exposed metal parts of the power tool "live"and shock the operator.
6. Always use blades with correct size and shape (diamond versus round) of arbor holes. Blades that do not match the mounting hardware of the saw will run
eccentrically, causing loss of control.
7. Never use damaged or incorrect blade washers or bolt. The blade washers and bolt were specially designed for your saw, for optimum performance and safety of
8. Blade stalling.
If the blade becomes twisted or misaligned in the cut or when blade is binding, or when interrupting a cut for any reason, release the trigger and hold the saw
motionless in the material until the blade comes to a complete stop. Investigate and take corrective actions to eliminate the cause of blade binding.
• Do not use dull or damaged blades. Unsharpened or improperly set blades cause excessive friction, blade binding and kickback.
• Blade depth lever must be tight and secure before making cut. If blade adjustment shifts while cutting, it may cause binding and kickback.
10. There is no lower guard to protect the operator from the blade. Take extra precaution when power tool in operation. Be aware of the time it takes for the
blade to stop after switch is released.
11. ALWAYS hold the tool firmly with both hands. NEVER place your hand or fingers behind the saw. If kickback occurs, the saw could easily slide backwards, leading
to serious personal injury.
12. Never force the saw. Push the saw forward at a speed so that the blade cuts without slowing. Forcing the saw can cause uneven cuts, loss of accuracy, and
possible kickback.
13. Use extra caution when cutting hard materials. Adjust speed of cut to maintain smooth advancement of tool without decrease in blade speed.
14. Do not attempt to remove cut material when blade is moving. Wait until blade stops before grasping cut material. CAUTION: Blades coast after turn off.
15. Wear a dust mask and hearing protection when using the tool.
16. Do not remove the carriage from the rail with power tool still attached. Detach power tool from carriage first before sliding the carriage off the rail.
MISUSE or failure to follow the safety rules stated in this instruction manual may cause serious personal injury.
