GENERAL SAFETY RULES
Woodworking can be dangerous if safe and proper operating procedures are not followed. As with all machinery, there
are certain hazards involved with the operation of the product. Using the machine with respect and caution will
considerably lessen the possibility of personal injury. However, if normal safety precautions are overlooked or ignored,
personal injury to the operator may result. Safety equipment such as guards, push sticks, hold-downs, featherboards,
goggles, dust masks and hearing protection can reduce your potential for injury. But even the best guard won’t make
up for poor judgment, carelessness or inattention. Always use common sense and exercise caution in the workshop.
If a procedure feels dangerous, don’t try it. Figure out an alternative procedure that feels safer. REMEMBER: Your
personal safety is your responsibility.
This machine was designed for certain applications only. Delta Machinery strongly recommends that this machine not
be modified and/or used for any application other than that for which it was designed. If you have any questions relative
to a particular application, DO NOT use the machine until you have first contacted Delta to determine if it can or should
be performed on the product.

to the “OFF” position.
18. NEVER STAND ON TOOL. Serious injury could occur if
the tool is tipped or if the cutting tool is accidentally
contacted.
19. CHECK DAMAGED PARTS. Before further use of the
tool, a guard or other part that is damaged should be
carefully checked to ensure 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 should be
properly repaired or replaced.
20. DIRECTION OF FEED. Feed work into a blade or
cutter against the direction of rotation of the blade or cutter
only.
21. NEVER LEAVE TOOL RUNNING UNATTENDED.
TURN POWER OFF. Don’t leave tool until it comes to a
complete stop.
22. STAY ALERT, WATCH WHAT YOU ARE DOING, AND
USE COMMON SENSE WHEN OPERATING A POWER

P O W E R S U P P LY w h i l e m o t o r i s b e i n g m o u n t e d ,
connected or reconnected.
24. THE DUST GENERATED by certain woods and wood
products can be injurious to your health. Always operate
machinery in well ventilated areas and provide for proper
dust removal. Use wood dust collection systems whenever
possible.
25.
WARNING: SOME DUST CREATED BY
POWER SANDING, SAWING, GRINDING, DRILLING,
AND OTHER CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITIES contains
chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other
reproductive harm. Some examples of these chemicals
are:
· lead from lead-based paints,
· crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other
masonry products, and
· arsenic and chromium from chemically-treated lumber.
Your risk from these exposures varies, depending on how
often you do this type of work. To reduce your exposure
to these chemicals: work in a well ventilated area, and
work with approved safety equipment, such as those
dust masks that are specially designed to filter out
microscopic particles.

OPERATION
The following is an example of the setting-up and operational procedures when using the fence, collars and
starting pin. Please review this information carefully before turning on the power to avoid damage to the
machine or personal injury. WARNING: The use of accessories and attachments not recommended by Delta may
result in risk of injuries.

WHEN USING THE FENCE
AS A GUIDE
CUTTING
CIRCLE
Using the fence is the safest and most satisfactory
method of shaping and routing and this method should
always be used when the work permits. Almost all
straight work can be shaped using the fence as follows:
DEPTH OF CUT
FEED
Fig. 36
1. For average work, where a portion of the original
edge of the work is not touched by the cutter, both the
front and rear fences are in a straight line, as shown in
Fig. 36.
REAR FENCE
FRONT FENCE
NO SUPPORT
2. When the operation removes the entire edge of the
work, e.g., in jointing or making a full bead, the shaped
edge will not be supported by the rear fence when both
fences are in line, as shown in Fig. 37. In this case, the
work should be advanced to the position shown in Fig.
37 and stopped. Then turn the machine off.
WORK
Fig. 37
3. The rear fence should then be advanced to contact
the work, as shown in Fig. 38. The rear fence will then be
in line with the cutting circle.

ROUTING OR SHAPING WITH COLLARS AND STARTING PIN
When using collars and starting pin, the following rules must always be followed for good work and safety in operation.
1. Collars MUST be smooth and free of all gum or
other substances.
2. The edge of the work to be shaped MUST be
smooth, as any irregularity in the surface which rides
against the collar will be duplicated on the molded
surface.
3. A portion of the edge of the work MUST remain untouched by the cutters in order that the collar will have
sufficient bearing surface. Fig. 39, illustrates the wrong
way for the operation while Fig. 40 illustrates the right
way.

4. The work MUST be fairly heavy in proportion to the
cut being made as shown in Fig. 41. Under NO
circumstances should short work of light body be
shaped against the collars as shown in Fig. 42.

POSITION OF COLLARS
1. The collars may be used in any of the following positions: above, below or between two cutters.
CUTTER
COLLAR
2. When the collar is used below the cutter, as shown
in Fig. 43, the progress of the cut can be observed at all
times. However, any accidental lifting of the work will
gouge the wood and ruin the workpiece.

TABLE
Fig. 43
3. When the collar is used above the cutter as shown
in Fig. 44, the cut cannot be seen, yet this method offers
some advantage in that the cut is not affected by slight
variations in the thickness of the stock. Also accidental
lifting of the work will not gouge the workpiece. Simply
correct the mistake by repeating the operation.

swing the work into the cutter as shown in the second
position. The work will now be supported by the collar
and starting pin as shown in Fig. 46.

3. After the cut has been started, the work is swung
free of the starting pin, and rides only against the collar
as shown in the third position Fig. 47. ALWAYS FEED
AGAINST THE ROTATION OF THE CUTTER.
