RULES FOR SAFE OPERATION
The purpose of safety symbols is to attract your attention to possible dangers. The safety symbols, and the
explanations with them, deserve your careful attention and understanding. The safety warnings do not by
themselves eliminate any danger. The instructions or warnings they give are not substitutes for proper
accident prevention measures.
SYMBOL
MEANING
SAFETY ALERT SYMBOL:
Indicates caution, warning, or danger. May be used in conjunction with other symbols or pictographs.
DANGER: Failure to obey a safety warning will result in serious injury to yourself or to others. Always
follow the safety precautions to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock and personal injury.
WARNING: Failure to obey a safety warning can result in serious injury to yourself or to others. Always
follow the safety precautions to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock and personal injury.
CAUTION: Failure to obey a safety warning may result in property damage or personal injury to
yourself or to others. Always follow the safety precautions to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock and
personal injury.
NOTE:
Advises you of information or instructions vital to the operation or maintenance of the equipment.
DOUBLE INSULATION
IMPORTANT
Double insulation is a concept in safety, in electric power
tools, which eliminates the need for the usual three-wire
grounded power cord. All exposed metal parts are isolated
from internal metal motor components with protecting
insulation. Double insulated tools do not need to be grounded.
Servicing requires extreme care and knowledge and should
be performed only by a qualified service technician. For
service we suggest you return the tool to your nearest
RYOBI FACTORY or AUTHORIZED SERVICE CENTER
for repair. When servicing, use only identical Ryobi replacement parts.
WARNING:
The double insulated system is intended to protect
the user from shock resulting from a break in the
tool's internal wiring. Observe all normal safety
precautions related to avoiding electrical shock.
Page 3
RULES FOR SAFE OPERATION
Safe operation of this power tool requires that you read and
understand this operator's manual and all labels affixed to
the tool. Safety is a combination of common sense, staying
alert, and knowing how your compound miter saw works.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS
1. 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.
2. GUARD AGAINST ELECTRICAL SHOCK BY
PREVENTING BODY CONTACT WITH GROUNDED
SURFACES. For example; pipes, radiators, ranges,
refrigerator enclosures.
3. KEEP GUARDS IN PLACE and in good working order.
4. KEEP THE WORK AREA CLEAN. Cluttered work
areas and work benches invite accidents. DO NOT
leave tools or pieces of wood on the saw while it is in
operation.
5. DO NOT USE IN DANGEROUS ENVIRONMENTS.
Do not use power tools near gasoline or other flammable
liquids, in damp or wet locations, or expose them to
rain. Keep the work area well lit.
6. 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.
7. MAKE WORKSHOP CHILD-PROOF with padlocks
and master switches, or by removing starter keys.
8. DO NOT FORCE THE TOOL. It will do the job better
and safer at the rate for which it was designed.
9. USE THE RIGHT TOOL. Do not force the tool or
attachment to do a job it was not designed for. Don't use
it for a purpose not intended.
10. DRESS PROPERLY. Do not wear loose clothing,
gloves, neckties, rings, bracelets, or other jewelry.
They can get caught and draw you into moving parts.
Rubber gloves and nonslip footwear are recommended
when working outdoors. Also wear protective hair
covering to contain long hair.
11. ALWAYS WEAR SAFETY GLASSES WITH SIDE
SHIELDS. Everyday eyeglasses have only impactresistant lenses; they are NOT safety glasses.
12. PROTECT YOUR LUNGS. Wear a face or dust mask
if the cutting operation is dusty.
13. PROTECT YOUR HEARING. Wear hearing protection
during extended periods of operation.
14. DO NOT ABUSE CORD. Never yank cord to disconnect
it from receptacle. Keep cord from heat, oil, and sharp
edges.
15. DO NOT OVERREACH. Keep proper footing and
balance at all times.
16. MAINTAIN TOOLS WITH CARE. Keep tools sharp and
clean for better and safer performance. Follow
instructions for lubricating and changing accessories.
17. DISCONNECT ALL TOOLS. When not in use, before
servicing, or when changing attachments, blades, bits,
cutters, etc., all tools should be disconnected.
18. REMOVE ADJUSTING KEYS AND WRENCHES. Get
in the habit of checking to see that hex keys and
adjusting wrenches are removed from tool before turning
it on.
19. AVOID ACCIDENTAL STARTING. Be sure switch is
off when plugging in.
20. USE THE 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 your product will draw. An undersized
cord will cause a drop in line voltage resulting in loss of
power and overheating. A wire gage 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 gage.
The smaller the gage number, the heavier the cord.
21. USE OUTDOOR EXTENSION CORDS. When tool is
used outdoors, use only extension cords with approved
ground connection that are intended for use outdoors
and so marked.
22. KEEP BLADES CLEAN AND SHARP. Sharp blades
minimize stalling and kickback.
23. KEEP HANDS AWAY FROM CUTTING AREA. Keep
hands away from blades. Do not reach underneath
work or around or under the blade while blade is
rotating. Do not attempt to remove cut material when
blade is moving.
WARNING: Blades coast after turn off.
24. NEVER USE IN AN EXPLOSIVE ATMOSPHERE.
Normal sparking of the motor could ignite fumes.
25. INSPECT TOOL CORDS PERIODICALLY and if
damaged, have repaired at your nearest RYOBI
FACTORY or AUTHORIZED SERVICE CENTER. Stay
constantly aware of cord location and keep it well away
from the rotating blade.
26. INSPECT EXTENSION CORDS PERIODICALLY and
replace if damaged.
27. KEEP TOOL DRY, CLEAN, AND FREE FROM OIL
AND GREASE. Always use a clean cloth when cleaning.
Never use brake fluids, gasoline, petroleum-based
products, or any solvents to clean tool.
28. 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.
Page 4
RULES FOR SAFE OPERATION
29. 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.
30. DO NOT USE TOOL IF SWITCH DOES NOT TURN IT
ON AND OFF. Have defective switches replaced by an
authorized service center.
31. 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.
32. USE THE FENCE. Always use the fence when cutting.
33. SUPPORT LONG WORKPIECES. To minimize risk of
blade pinching and kickback, always support long
workpieces.
34. BEFORE MAKING A CUT, BE SURE ALL
ADJUSTMENTS ARE SECURE.
35. USE ONLY CORRECT BLADES. Do not use blades
with incorrect size holes. Never use blade washers or
blade screws that are defective or incorrect. The
maximum blade capacity of your saw is 10 in. (254 mm).
36. USE RECOMMENDED ACCESSORIES. The use of
improper accessories may cause risk of injury.
37. NEVER STAND ON TOOL. Serious injury could occur
if the tool is tipped or if the blade is unintentionally
contacted.
38. POLARIZED PLUGS. To reduce the risk of electric
shock, this tool has a polarized plug (one blade is wider
than the other). This plug will fit in a polarized outlet only
one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse
the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician
to install the proper outlet. Do not change the plug in any
way.
39. NEVER LEAVE TOOL RUNNING UNATTENDED.
TURN THE POWER OFF. Do not leave tool until it
comes to a complete stop.
40. AVOID CUTTING NAILS. Inspect for and remove all
nails from lumber before cutting.
41. NEVER TOUCH BLADE or other moving parts during
use.
42. NEVER START A TOOL WHEN THE BLADE IS IN
CONTACT WITH THE WORKPIECE.
43. DO NOT OPERATE THIS TOOL WHILE UNDER THE
INFLUENCE OF DRUGS, ALCOHOL, OR ANY
MEDICATION.
44. SECURE WORK. Use clamps or a vise to hold work
when practical. It's safer than using your hand and it
frees both hands to operate tool.
45. REPLACEMENT PARTS. All repairs, whether electrical
or mechanical, should be made at a Ryobi Factory or
Authorized Service Center.
WARNING:
When servicing use only identical Ryobi replacement
parts. Use of any other parts may create a hazard or
cause product damage.
46. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS. Refer to them
frequently and use them to instruct other users. If you
loan someone this tool, loan them these instructions
also.
WARNING:
The operation of any saw can result in foreign objects being thrown into your eyes, which
can result in severe eye damage. Before beginning power tool operation, always wear
safety goggles or safety glasses with side shields and a full face shield when needed. We
recommend Wide Vision Safety Mask for use over eyeglasses or standard safety glasses
with side shields.
Look for this symbol to point out important safety precautions.
It means attention!!! Your safety is involved.

Additional Rules For Safe Operation
For Compound Miter Saws
1. NEVER USE A DULL SAW BLADE or one that does
not have sufficient set.
2. DO NOT REMOVE THE SAW'S BLADE GUARDS.
Never operate the saw with any guard or cover removed. Make sure all guards are operating properly
before each use.
3. MAKE SURE THE MITER TABLE AND SAW ARM
(BEVEL FUNCTION) ARE LOCKED IN POSITION
BEFORE OPERATING YOUR SAW. Lock the miter
table by securely tightening the miter lock handle. Lock
the saw arm (bevel function) by securely tightening the
bevel lock knob.
4. NEVER PERFORM ANY OPERATION "FREE-HAND".
Always place the workpiece to be cut on the miter table
and position it firmly against the fence as a backstop.
5. ALWAYS USE A CLAMP to secure the workpiece
when possible.
6. NEVER hand hold a workpiece that is too small to be
clamped. Keep hands clear of the no hands zone.
7. NEVER reach behind, under, or within three inches of
the blade and its cutting path with your hands and
fingers for any reason.
8. NEVER stand or have any part of your body in line with
the path of the saw blade.
9. ALLOW THE MOTOR TO COME UP TO FULL SPEED
before starting a cut.
10. ALWAYS release the power switch and allow the saw
blade to stop rotating before raising it out of the
workpiece.
11. NEVER reach to pick up a workpiece, a piece of scrap,
or anything else that is in or near the cutting path of the
blade.
12. NEVER leave the miter saw unattended while connected to a power source.
13. FIRMLY CLAMP OR BOLT your miter saw to a workbench or table. The most comfortable saw table height
is 39 inches or at approximately hip height.
14. AVOID AWKWARD OPERATIONS AND HAND POSITIONS where a sudden slip could cause your hand to
move into the blade. ALWAYS make sure you have
15.
16.
17.
18.
good balance. NEVER operate your miter saw on the
floor or in a crouched position.
ALWAYS PROVIDE ADEQUATE ROOM AND SUPPORT for crosscutting long workpieces.
NEVER USE A LENGTH STOP ON THE FREE SCRAP
END OF A CLAMPED WORKPIECE. NEVER hold
onto or bind the free scrap end of the workpiece in any
operation. If a work clamp and length stop are used
together, they must both be installed on the same side
of the saw table to prevent the saw from catching the
loose end and kicking up.
DO NOT TURN THE MOTOR SWITCH ON AND OFF
RAPIDLY. This could cause the saw blade to loosen
and could create a hazard. Should this ever occur,
stand clear and allow the saw blade to come to a
complete stop. Disconnect your saw from the power
supply and securely retighten the blade screw (arbor
bolt).
NEVER cut more than one piece at a time. DO NOT
STACK more than one workpiece on the saw table at
a time.
19. IF ANY PART OF THIS MITER SAW IS MISSING or
should break, bend, or fail in any way, or should any
electrical component fail to perform properly, shut off
the power switch, remove the miter saw plug from the
power source and have damaged, missing, or failed
parts replaced before resuming operation.
20. ALWAYS STAY ALERT! Do not allow familiarity (gained
from frequent use of your saw) to cause a careless
mistake. ALWAYS REMEMBER that a careless fraction of a second is sufficient to inflict severe injury.
21. 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 your saw.
22. ALWAYS TURN OFF SAW before disconnecting it, to
avoid accidental starting when re-connecting to power
supply.
23. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS. Refer to them frequently and use to instruct other users. If you loan
someone this tool, loan them these instructions also.

GLOSSARY OF TERMS FOR WOODWORKING
Arbor
The shaft on which a blade or cutting tool is mounted.
Set
The distance that the tip of the sawblade tooth is bent (or set)
outward from the face of the blade.
Bevel Cut
A cutting operation made with an angled blade.
Crosscut
A cutting or shaping operation made across the grain of the
workpiece.
Compound Miter Cut
A compound miter cut is a cut made using a miter angle and
a bevel angle at the same time.
Freehand
Performing a cut without using a fence, miter gage, fixture,
work clamp, or other proper device to keep the workpiece
from twisting during the cut.
Gum
A sticky, sap based residue from wood products.
Miter Cut
A cutting operation made with the wood at any angle other
than 90 degrees.
Resin
A sticky, sap base substance that has hardened.
Revolutions Per Minute (RPM)
The number of turns completed by a spinning object in one
minute.
Saw Blade Path
The area over, under, behind, or in front of the blade. As it
applies to the workpiece, that area which will be, or has been,
cut by the blade.
Throw-Back
Throwing of a workpiece in a manner similar to a kickback.
Usually associated with a cause other than the kerf closing,
such as a workpiece not being against the fence, being
dropped into the blade, or being placed inadvertently in
contact with the blade.
Through Sawing
Any cutting operation where the blade extends completely
through the thickness of the workpiece.
Workpiece
The item on which the cutting operation is being done. The
surfaces of a workpiece are commonly referred to as faces,
ends, and edges.
Zero Clearance Throat Plate
A plastic throat plate inserted in the miter table that allows for
blade clearance. When you make your first cut with your
compound miter saw, the saw blade cuts a slot through the
throat plate the exact width of the blade. This provides for a
zero clearance kerf that minimizes workpiece tear-out.
No Hands Zone
The area between the marked lines on the left and right side
of the miter table base. This zone is identified by no hands
zone labels placed inside the marked lines on the miter table
base.

Your saw has 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 your tool does
not operate when plugged into an outlet, double-check the
power supply.
MOUNTING HOLES
See Figure 6.
Your compound miter saw should be permanently mounted
to a firm supporting surface such as workbench. Four 7/16 in.
(11 mm) bolt holes have been provided in the saw base for
this purpose. Each of the four mounting holes should be
bolted securely using 7/16 in. (11 mm) machine bolts, lock
washers, and hex nuts (not included). Bolts should be of
sufficient length to accommodate the saw base, lock washers,
hex nuts, and the thickness of the workbench.
Tighten all four bolts securely.
The hole pattern for an 18 in. (457 mm) x 24 in. (610 mm)
workbench is shown in Figure 6. Carefully check the
workbench after mounting to make sure that no movement
can occur during use. If any tipping, sliding, or walking is
noted, secure the workbench to the floor before operating.
OPTIONAL ACCESSORIES
Optional accessories are available and may be purchased for
use with your saw. They include table extensions, a stop
block, and dust bag.
The table extensions increase the work surface to 36 inches
wide, providing improved support for cutting long workpieces.
The stop block is useful as a stop for cutting multiple workpieces

As mentioned previously, the stop block is useful as a stop
for cutting multiple pieces to the same length. It can be
installed on either side of the saw base:
■ Loosen the thumb screw and adjust the stop block the
desired distance from the blade for the cut to be
made. For accurate placement of the stop block, measure the distance from the teeth set on the blade to
the stop block.
■ Tighten thumb screw securely.
■ Make a test cut in scrap material and measure the
length of the workpiece.
■ Make any necessary adjustments.
OPTIONAL TABLE EXTENSIONS
To install the table extensions, insert the ends of the extensions into the holes in the sides of the base. Adjust the
extensions to the desired length. To secure them in place,
screw the two thumb screws provided into the holes in the
front of the base and tighten them securely.
WARNING:
When using the work clamp with the stop block, install the
clamp on the same side as the stop block. This will
eliminate the possibility of the saw coming loose and
kicking up. Failure to heed this warning can result in
serious personal injury.
WORKSTAND
An optional workstand, part number 673823A is available for
use with your compound miter saw.
WARNING:
Always make sure your compound miter saw is securely
mounted to a workbench or an approved workstand.
Failure to do so could result in an accident resulting in
possible serious personal injury.
ADJUSTMENTS
Your Ryobi compound miter 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. After unpacking your saw, check the following adjustments before you
begin using saw. Make any readjustments that are necessary and periodically check the parts alignment to make
sure that your saw is cutting accurately.
WARNING:
Your saw should never be connected to power supply
when you are assembling parts, making adjustments,
installing or removing blades, or when not in use. Disconnecting your saw will prevent accidental starting that
could cause serious injury.
NOTE: Many of the illustrations in this manual show only
portions of your compound miter saw. This is intentional so
that we can clearly show points being made in the illustrations. Never operate your saw without all guards securely
in place and in good operating condition.
CUTTING A SLOT IN THE ZERO CLEARANCE THROAT PLATE
In order to use your compound miter saw, you must cut a
slot through the zero clearance throat plate to allow for
blade clearance. To cut the slot, set your saw at 0 degrees
miter, turn saw on and allow the blade to reach full speed,
then carefully make a straight cut as far as it will go through
the throat plate. Turn your saw off and allow the blade to
come to a complete stop before raising the saw arm.
Next, adjust the bevel angle to 45 degrees, turn your saw
on and allow the blade to reach full speed, then carefully
make another cut through the zero clearance throat plate.
The throat plate will then be wide enough to allow the blade
to pass through it at any angle from 0 to 45 degrees.

DEPTH STOP
The depth stop limits the blade's downward travel. It
allows the blade to go below the miter table enough to
maintain full cutting capacities. The depth stop positions
the blade 1/4 in. (6.4 mm) from the miter table support.
NOTE: The miter table support is located inside miter table.
The depth stop is factory set to provide maximum cutting
capacity for the 10 in. (254 mm) saw blade provided with
your saw. Therefore, the saw blade provided should never
need adjustments.
However, when the diameter of the blade has been reduced
due to sharpening, it may be necessary to adjust the depth
stop to provide maximum cutting capacity. Also, when a new
blade is installed, it is necessary to check the clearance of
the blade to the miter table support.
DEPTH STOP ADJUSTMENTS
■
■
WARNING:
Do not start your compound miter saw without checking
for interference between the blade and the miter table
support. Damage could result to the blade if it strikes the
miter table support during operation of the saw.
■
■
See Figure 25.
■ Unplug your saw.
WARNING:
■
To adjust the depth stop use a 17 mm wrench or
adjustable wrench and loosen the hex nut at the rear of
the miter saw arm.
Use the 5 mm hex key (allen wrench) provided to adjust
the depth stop adjustment screw. The saw blade is
lowered by turning the screw counterclockwise and
raised by turning the screw clockwise.
Tighten the hex nut with a 17 mm wrench or adjustable
wrench.
To prevent the depth stop adjustment screw from turning
while tightening the hex nut, carefully hold it with the hex
key (allen wrench) while tightening the hex nut.
OPERATION
Failure to unplug your saw could result in accidental
starting causing possible serious personal injury.
■
Lower the blade into the zero clearance throat plate of
the miter table. Check blade clearance and maximum
cutting distance (distance from fence where blade enters)
to front of miter table slot.
Readjust if necessary.

A compound miter cut is a cut made using a miter angle and
a bevel angle at the same time. This type of cut is used to
make picture frames, cut molding, make boxes with slopping
sides, and for certain roof framing cuts.
To make this type of cut the control arm on the miter table
must be rotated to the correct angle and the saw arm must
be tilted to the correct bevel angle. Care should always be
taken when making compound miter setups due to the
interaction of the two angle settings.
Adjustments of miter and bevel settings are interdependent
with one another. Each time you adjust the miter setting you
change the effect of the bevel setting. Also, each time you
adjust the bevel setting you change the effect of the miter
setting.
It may take several settings to obtain the desired cut. The first
angle setting should be checked after setting the second
angle, since adjusting the second angle affects the first.
Once the two correct settings for a particular cut have been
obtained, always make a test cut in scrap material before
making a finish cut in good material.

Pull out the lock pin and lift saw arm to its full height.
Loosen the miter lock handle. Rotate the miter lock
handle approximately one-half turn to the left to loosen.
Press the lock plate down with your thumb and hold.
Rotate the control arm until the pointer aligns with the
desired angle on the miter scale.
Release the lock plate.
NOTE: You can quickly locate 0°, 22-1/2° left or right,
and 45° left or right by releasing the lock plate as you
rotate the control arm. The lock plate will seat itself in one
of the positive stop notches, located in miter table frame.
Tighten the miter lock handle securely.
WARNING:
To avoid serious personal injury, always tighten the miter
lock handle securely before making a cut. Failure to do so
could result in movement of the control arm or miter table
while making a cut.

Loosen the bevel lock knob and move the saw arm to the
left to the desired bevel angle.
Bevel angles can be set from 0° to 45°.
For your convenience there is a double scale located on
the mounting bracket. See Figure 27. If one side becomes difficult to read as you move the saw arm to the
left, simply refer to the other side. Align the indicator
point for the side you choose with the desired angle.
Once the saw arm has been set at the desired angle,
securely tighten the bevel lock knob.
Recheck miter angle setting. Make a test cut in scrap
material.

Place the workpiece flat on the miter table with one edge
securely against the fence. If the board is warped, place
the convex side against the fence. If the concave edge
of a board is placed against the fence, the board could
collapse on the blade at the end of the cut, jamming the
blade.
When cutting long pieces of lumber or molding, support
the opposite end of the stock with a roller stand or with
a work surface level with the saw table.
Align the cutting line on the workpiece with the edge of

OPERATION
CUTTING CROWN MOLDING
Your compound miter saw does an excellent job of cutting
crown molding. In general, compound miter saws do a better
job of cutting crown molding than any other tool made.
In order to fit properly, crown molding must be compound
mitered with extreme accuracy.
The two contact surfaces on a piece of crown molding that fit
flat against the ceiling and the wall of a room are at angles
that, when added together, equal exactly 90°. Most crown
molding has a top rear angle (the section that fits flat against
the ceiling) of 52° and a bottom rear angle (the section that fits
flat against the wall) of 38°.
There are two ways to cut crown molding: (1) place the
molding flat on the miter table, and (2) place the molding
angled to the miter table and fence.
When cutting crown molding by this method the bevel angle
should be set at 33.85°. The miter angle should be set at
31.62° either right or left, depending on the desired cut for the
application. See the chart below for correct angle settings and
correct positioning of crown molding on miter table.
The settings in the chart below can be used for cutting All
Standard (U.S.) crown molding with 52° and 38° angles. The
crown molding is placed flat on the miter table using the
compound features of your miter saw.

LAYING MOLDING FLAT ON THE MITER
TABLE
See Figure 30.
To use this method for accurately cutting crown molding for
a 90° inside or outside corner, lay the molding with its broad
back surface flat on the miter table and against the fence.
When setting the bevel and miter angles for compound
miters, remember that the settings are interdependent; changing one angle changes the other angle as well.
Keep in mind that the angles for crown moldings are very
precise and difficult to set. Since it is very easy for these
angles to shift, all settings should first be tested on scrap
molding. Also most walls do not have angles of exactly 90°,
therefore, you will need to fine tune your settings.

MAINTENANCE
EXTENSION CORDS
WARNING:
When servicing, use only identical Ryobi replacement
parts. Use of any other part may create a hazard or cause
product damage.
GENERAL
Avoid using solvents when cleaning plastic parts. Most
plastics are susceptible to damage from various types of
commercial solvents and may be damaged by their use.
Use clean cloths to remove dirt, carbon dust, etc.
WARNING:
Do not at any time let brake fluids, gasoline, petroleumbased products, penetrating oils, etc. come in contact
with plastic parts. They contain chemicals that can
damage, weaken or destroy plastic.
It has been found that electric tools are subject to accelerated
wear and possible premature failure when they are used on
fiberglass boats, sports cars, wallboard, spackling
compounds, or plaster. The chips and grindings from these
materials are highly abrasive to electric tool parts such as
bearings, brushes, commutators, etc. Consequently, it is not
recommended that this tool be used for extended work on
any fiberglass material, wallboard, spackling compounds, or
plaster. During any use on these materials it is extremely
important that the tool is cleaned frequently by blowing with
an air jet.
The use of any extension cord will cause some loss of power.
To keep the loss to a minimum and to prevent tool overheating,
use an extension cord that is heavy enough to carry the
current the tool will draw.
A wire gage size (A.W.G.) of at least 14 is recommended for
an extension cord 25 feet or less in length. When working
outdoors, use an extension cord that is suitable for outdoor
use. The cord's jacket will be marked WA.
CAUTION:
Keep extension cords away from the cutting area and
position the cord so that it will not get caught on lumber,
tools, etc., during cutting operation.
WARNING:
Check extension cords before each use. If damaged,
replace immediately. Never use tool with a damaged cord
since touching the damaged area could cause electrical
shock resulting in serious injury.
WARNING:
Always wear safety goggles or safety glasses with side
shields during power tool operation or when blowing dust.
If operation is dusty, also wear a dust mask.
LUBRICATION
All of the bearings in this tool are lubricated with a sufficient
amount of high grade lubricant for the life of the unit under
normal operating conditions. Therefore, no further lubrication is required.

EXTENSION CORD CAUTION
**Ampere rating
When using a power tool at a considerable distance from a power
source, be sure to use an extension cord that has the capacity to
handle the current the tool will draw. An undersized cord will cause
a drop in line voltage, resulting in overheating and loss of power.
Use the chart to determine the minimum wire size required in an
extension cord. Only round jacketed cords should be used.
When working with a tool outdoors, use an extension cord that is
designed for outside use. This is indicated by the letters "WA" on
the cord's jacket.
Before using any extension cord, inspect it for loose or exposed
wires and cut or worn insulation.
