APPLICATIONS
WARNING:
You may use this tool for the purposes listed below:
n For cutting up to 5/8 in. maximum width dadoes on BTS15
Ryobi table saw.

n When the work is complete, turn the saw off, remove the
switch key, and unplug the saw.
n Lower the blade below the table surface.
Never install a dado set to cut a larger groove than a
width of 5/8 in. Installing a wider dado set could result
in insufficient thread engagement of the arbor nut.
Never use any blade or dado set with less than full
engagement of the nut on the threaded arbor shaft.

serious personal injury.

following instructions in the BTS15 Operator's Manual.
USING A DADO INSERT

saw, insert the switch key, and turn the saw on. Let the
saw build up to full speed before feeding the workpiece
into the blade. Always use push sticks or push blocks
with any non-through cuts.
WARNING:
To reduce the risk of injury and before plugging the
saw back in, make sure the blade guard is installed
