The declared vibration emission value has been
measured in accordance with the standard test
method and may be used for comparing one tool
with another.
The declared vibration emission value may also be
used in a preliminary assessment of exposure.
Save all warnings and
instructions for future reference.
The term "power tool" in the warnings refers to your
mains-operated (corded) power tool or battery-operated
(cordless) 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 plugs must match the outlet. Never
modify the plug in any way. Do not use any
adapter plugs with earthed (grounded) power
tools. Unmodified plugs and matching outlets will
reduce risk of electric shock.
WARNING:
The vibration emission during actual use of the
power tool can differ from the declared emission
value depending on the ways in which the tool is
used.
Be sure to identify safety measures to protect the
operator that are based on an estimation of
exposure in the actual conditions of use (taking
account of all parts of the operating cycle such as
the times when the tool is switched off and when it
is running idle in addition to the trigger time).
3
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. 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.
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
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.
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 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.
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 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.
Service
25. 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.
26. Follow instruction for lubricating and
changing accessories.
27. Keep handles dry, clean and free from oil and
grease.
5.
Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded
surfaces such as pipes, radiators, ranges and
refrigerators. There is an increased risk of
electric shock if your body is earthed or grounded.
6.
Do not expose power tools to rain or wet
conditions. Water entering a power tool will
increase the risk of electric shock.
7.
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.
8.
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.
9.
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.
10. Use of power supply via a RCD with a rated
residual current of 30mA or less is always
recommended.
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 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.
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 may
result in personal injury.
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
jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing, and gloves
away from moving parts. Loose clothes,
jewellery or long hair can be caught in moving
parts.

When lowering the handle, the blade guard rises
automatically. The guard is spring loaded so it returns to
its original position when the cut is completed and the
handle is raised. NEVER DEFEAT OR REMOVE THE
BLADE GUARD OR THE SPRING WHICH ATTACHES
TO THE GUARD.
In the interest of your personal safety, always maintain
the blade guard in good condition. Any irregular
operation of the blade guard should be corrected
immediately. Check to assure spring loaded return action
of guard. NEVER USE THE TOOL IF THE BLADE
GUARD OR SPRING ARE DAMAGED, FAULTY OR
REMOVED. DOING SO IS HIGHLY DANGEROUS AND
CAN CAUSE SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY.
If the see-through blade guard becomes dirty, or sawdust
adheres to it in such a way that the blade is no longer
easily visible, unplug the saw and clean the guard
carefully with a damp cloth. Do not use solvents or any
petroleum-based cleaners on the plastic guard.
If the blade guard is especially dirty and vision through
the guard is impaired, use the supplied socket wrench to
loosen the hex bolt holding the center cover. Loosen the
hex bolt by turning it counterclockwise and raise the
blade guard and center cover. With the blade guard so
positioned, cleaning can be more completely and
efficiently accomplished. When cleaning is complete,

The horizontal vise can be installed on either the left or
right side of the base. When performing 15° or greater
miter cuts, install the horizontal vise on the side opposite
the direction in which the turn table is to be turned. By
turning the vise knob counterclockwise, the screw is
released and the vise shaft can be moved rapidly in and
out. By turning the vise knob clockwise, the screw
remains secured. To grip the workpiece, turn the vise
knob gently clockwise until the projection reaches its
topmost position, then fasten securely. If the vise knob is
forced in or pulled out while being turned clockwise, the
projection may stop at an angle. In this case, turn the vise
knob back counterclockwise until the screw is released,
before turning again gently clockwise.
The maximum width of the workpiece which can be
secured by the horizontal vise is 130 mm.

OPERATION
•
•
•
•
Loosen the lever and tilt the saw blade to set the
bevel angle (Refer to the previously covered
"Adjusting the bevel angle"). Be sure to retighten
the lever firmly to secure the selected bevel angle
safely. Secure the workpiece with a vise. Switch on
the tool without the blade making any contact and
wait until the blade attains full speed. Then gently
lower the handle to the fully lowered position while
applying pressure in parallel with the blade. When
the cut is completed, switch off the tool and WAIT
UNTIL THE BLADE HAS COME TO A COMPLETE
STOP before returning the blade to its fully elevated
position.
CAUTION:
Before use, be sure to release the handle from the
lowered position by pulling the stopper pin.
Make sure the blade is not contacting the
workpiece, etc. before the switch is turned on.
Do not apply excessive pressure on the handle
when cutting. Too much force may result in
overload of the motor and/or decreased cutting
efficiency. Push down handle with only as much
force as is necessary for smooth cutting and
without significant decrease in blade speed.
Gently press down the handle to perform the cut. If
the handle is pressed down with force or if lateral
force is applied, the blade will vibrate and leave a
mark (saw mark) in the workpiece and the precision
of the cut will be impaired.
•
12
CAUTION:
Always be sure that the blade will move down to
bevel direction during a bevel cut. Keep hands out
of path of saw blade.
See the figure concerning the dimensions for a
suggested wood facing.
During a bevel cut, it may create a condition
whereby the piece cut off will come to rest against
the side of the blade. If the blade is raised while the
blade is still rotating, this piece may be caught by
the blade, causing fragments to be scattered which
is dangerous. The blade should be raised ONLY
after the blade has come to a complete stop.
When pressing the handle down, apply pressure
parallel to the blade. If the pressure is not parallel to
the blade during a cut, the angle of the blade might
be shifted and the precision of the cut will be
impaired.
Always set the sub-fence to the left position when
performing left bevel cuts.

When cutting several pieces of stock to the same
length, ranging from 240 mm to 400 mm, use of the
set plate (optional accessory) will facilitate more
efficient operation. Install the set plate on the holder
(optional accessory) as shown in the figure.
Align the cutting line on your workpiece with either
the left or right side of the groove in the kerf board,
and while holding the workpiece from moving,
move the set plate flush against the end of the
workpiece. Then secure the set plate with the screw.
When the set plate is not used, loosen the screw
and turn the set plate out of the way.
