tile Saw Safety Warnings

For your Own Safety read instruction

Manual Before Operating Saw

1. Wear eye protection.

2. Use saw-blade guard and spreader for every operation for which it can be used, including all through sawing.

3. Keep hands out of the line of saw blade.

4. Use an appropriate push-stick when required.

5. Know how to reduce risk of kickback.

6. Do not perform any operation freehand.

7. Never reach around or over saw blade.

8. Make sure the workpiece is supported at all times while sawing.

9. To properly understand all safety warnings, be familiar with the following safety terms and equipment:

10. Featherboard – A block with “fingers” that hold the workpiece against the fence while sawing.

11. Through-sawing – A cut made from one side of a tile to the opposite side, without stopping.

12. Push-stick – A narrow strip of wood or other soft material with a notch cut into one end and which is used to push short pieces of material through saws. It provides a safe distance between the hands and the cutting tool. Must be narrower than the cut width to prevent contact with the blade.

a. Freehand – Feeding a workpiece through the saw without using a fence or guided support to guide it.

nOt a SaFE MEtHOD.

b. Kerf – The gap made by the saw in the workpiece.

c. Kickback – A sudden reaction to a pinched, bound, or misaligned blade, causing an uncontrolled workpiece to lift up and out of the saw toward the operator.

d. Spreader – A metal plate that follows the saw blade to keep the kerf (gap) from closing on the saw blade. Spreaders, except riving knives, must be aligned to the blade after blade adjustment to prevent binding.

13. Riving Knife – A spreader mounted on the same mechanism as the blade.

Generally more effective than simple spreaders.

14. As noted previously,

Kickback

is a sudden reaction to a pinched, bound, or misaligned blade, causing an uncontrolled workpiece to lift up and out of the saw toward the operator.

Kickback is usually a result of tool misuse and can be limited or avoided by following the precautions below:

• Fence must be completely parallel to the saw blade.

• Workpiece must be free from flaws and from foreign objects.

15. Do not use a dull or damaged blade.

16. Maintain control of the workpiece. Do not allow the workpiece to rest against the moving blade without holding onto it.

• If the blade binds or a cut is interrupted, turn off the power switch and hold the workpiece still until the blade stops. Correct the cause of blade binding before proceeding.

• Before continuing an unfinished cut, center the blade in the pre-cut kerf and check that the saw is not engaged into the workpiece before turning on the saw.

• Push the tile past the blade prior to release.

17. Check guards for proper operation with saw disconnected from power before each use.

Do not disable any guard. Do not operate saw if any movable guard does not move freely and close instantly. Make sure any movable guard does not touch the blade in all angles, depths of cut, and positions.

18. Keep the guard in place while through-sawing.

Verify that the spreader lines up with the blade to prevent binding.

19. Construct an appropriate Push Stick out of wood according to the guidelines on the following page.

Vibration Safety

This tool vibrates during use. Repeated or long-term exposure to vibration may cause temporary or permanent physical injury, particularly to the hands, arms and shoulders.

To reduce the risk of vibration-related injury:

1. Anyone using vibrating tools regularly or for an extended period should first be examined by a doctor and then have regular medical check-ups to ensure medical problems are not being caused or worsened from use. Pregnant women or people who have impaired blood circulation to the hand, past hand injuries, nervous system disorders, diabetes, or Raynaud’s Disease should not use this tool. If you feel any medical or physical symptoms related to vibration (such as tingling, numbness, and white or blue fingers), seek medical advice as soon as possible.

2. Do not smoke during use. Nicotine reduces the blood supply to the hands and fingers, increasing the risk of vibration-related injury.

3. Use tools with the lowest vibration when there is a choice between different processes.

4. Include vibration-free periods each day of work.

5. Grip workpiece as lightly as possible (while still keeping safe control of it). Let the tool do the work.

6. To reduce vibration, maintain the tool as explained in this manual. If any abnormal vibration occurs, stop use immediately.

We shall in no event be liable for death, injuries to persons or property, or for incidental, contingent, special or consequential damages arising from the use of our product.
